Ethereum Classic is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference.
IOHK supported project
Why Ethereum Classic?
Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a continuation of the original Ethereum blockchain – the classic version preserving untampered history; free from external interference and subjective tampering of transactions.
ETC is a next generation digital currency united with an intuitive programming platform. This allows software developers of all skill sets to build the next wave of market disrupting decentralized applications (Dapps) that can change the world.
What are the goals of Ethereum Classic?
Our goal is to securely and methodically establish a strong ecosystem, with a solid foundation and immutability at its core. A platform where developers are able to write code that can run as intended, without downtime or interference from a third party.
We intend to carefully build every aspect of the Ethereum Classic network. Whether it is a big core infrastructure project or a small Dapp development team experimenting, we will uphold our principles of security, consistency and immutability.
It is our belief that adherence to these values will ensure the Ethereum Classic network is built upon a strong, stable foundation. It is this stable foundation that will cultivate growth of the next wave of applications often referred to as the Internet Of Things.
How can I get involved with Ethereum Classic?
Ethereum Classic is an open source project with numerous ways to participate and contribute. Most of the community discussion takes place on Slack but there are many open communication channels. Please see our call to action post on reddit for more information.
