What is Ethereum Classic?

Ethereum Classic is a decentralized computing platform that executes smart contracts. Applications are ran exactly as programmed without the possibility of censorship, downtime, or third-party interference.

Ethereum Classic is a distributed network consisting of a blockchain ledger, native cryptocurrency (ETC) and robust ecosystem of on-chain applications and services.

Ethereum Classic provides a permissionless way to manage digital assets without the need for intermediaries, such as banks and other institutions.

Ethereum Classic allows uncensorable smart contracts to be written, deployed and executed; ETC enables truly unstoppable programmable money.

Ethereum Classic is the continuation of the unaltered history of the original Ethereum chain. The ETC network exists to preserve the principle of "Code is Law".

To learn more about Ethereum Classic's formative history and ETC's promising future, check out the project's roadmap.
