(ETC) Ethereum Classic News

Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a decentralized proof-of-work-based smart-contract platform that diverged from Ethereum (ETH) following the 2016 DAO hack. Unlike Ethereum, the community behind Ethereum Classic did not agree to roll back the blockchain to reverse the DAO hack. Instead, it maintains that “code is law” — leaving the DAO outcome unchanged.

Like Ethereum, however, Ethereum Classic provides a Turing-complete virtual machine used for the deployment and execution of smart-contracts and decentralized applications (DApps).

As an open-source project, anybody can contribute to the development and improvement of Ethereum Classic, a process facilitated with its Emerald SDK.
