A Brief Introduction to Ethereum Classic

What was known simply as Ethereum, was forked into two versions: "Ethereum Classic" (ETC) and "Ethereum" (ETH) following the hard fork in 2015. After the fork, the new tokens kept the name Ethereum (ETH), and the old tokens were renamed Ethereum Classic (ETC). This digital currency has unlimited supply.

Ethereum Classic is an open-source blockchain-based distributed computing platform and operating system. It’s decentralized Turing-complete virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), can execute scripts using an international network of public nodes. The classic ether token is traded under the ticker symbol ETC.

Ethereum Classic vs Ethereum

Ethereum Classic shares many similarities with Ethereum, however there are a few differences between these two “sister-cryptocurrencies”.

  • ETC stays loyal to the “immutability” of the Ether blockchain.
  • ETC is that it isn’t backwards compatible with the ETH Hard Fork.
  • ETC is immune to future hard forks, potentially making it less volatile.

Furthermore, every ETC transaction helps Ethereum Classic grow, and if this causes the value of the currency to rise, so will the value of your wallet.
