      About Ethereum Classic

      Ethereum Classic is a decentralized platform for running smart contracts, and started as a fork of the Ethereum Blockchain. In June 2016, a hack on Ethereum of over $50 million worth of funds happened, which prompted the developers to fork the Blockchain. This was necessary so the affected parties could be reimbursed the stolen funds based on the records prior to the hack. Ethereum Classic is another result of the fork, and it has been present ever since. Ethereum Classic boasts the core value of the blockchain : immutability ; valid transactions cannot be tampered or erased in any way. “Code is Law” is another principle that Ethereum Classic holds near, and you can be sure that entering any smart contract on this platform will not be tampered in any way shape or form by the network it is run on.

      History of Ethereum Classic(ETC)

      Ethereum Classic like all other cryptocurrencies is based on the model of the first actual cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. However, before Bitcoin’s and Ethereum Classic’s time , cryptocurrencies were much more different, relying instead on a centralized power structure rather than the decentralized governance we see today. If it weren’t for the works of cryptographers such as David Chaum, Wei Dai, Nick Szabo and Hal Finney, who established some of the ground concepts for modern cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ethereum Classic would not exist today. However, the most important reason why Ethereum Classic was made possible is thanks to a person or a group of people under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. He took the concepts that cryptographers before him established and managed to create an actual peer-to-peer electronic money system that couldn’t be counterfeited. If Satoshi Nakamoto didn’t create Bitcoin, it is hard to say if Ethereum Classic or most cryptocurrencies would exist today.

      Ethereum Classic is a cryptocurrency with the symbol ETC and it’s price ticker on our website is 7.36. Its current price is 7.36 and the total change over the past 24 hours is 0.04. Ethereum Classic boasts a volume of 1,162,504.65 in the past 24 across your selected exchanges.

      Ethereum Classic Characteristics

      Cryptocurrencies like Ethereum Classic use strong cryptographic protocols, or very complex computer code to secure transfers of information, in order to create a safe system that is notoriously difficult to crack. The programmer of digital currencies such as Ethereum Classic base these protocols on complex mathematic and computer engineering fundamentals, creating a structure that makes it impossible to replicate funds for Ethereum Classic and also hides the identities of the parties involved on any transaction on Ethereum Classic network , unless the participants freely disclose their information.

      Ethereum Classic Operates on a Blockchain

      Ethereum Classic, like most cryptocurrencies operates on a blockchain, a new and disruptive technology that offers benefits for storing, securing and transferring information that was not otherwise possible before its inception. The idea of blockchain was first discovered in 1991 by Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta, however it was not until an anonymous person or group under the alias of Satoshi Nakamoto that created the first functional blockchain (Bitcoin’s blockchain) and improved on the ideas of Haber and Scornetta to create a truly functional distributed ledger.

      You can imagine the blockchain that Ethereum Classic is based on as a giant, distributed database where every transaction’s information is recorded and then spread on a massive network of connected nodes or computers. The information for transaction of Ethereum Classic is then multiplied and stored on each individual node, so in order to change it you would have to access he majority of the Ethereum Classic’s nodes at the same time, which has so far proven to be impossible.

      The advantages that Ethereum Classic runs on a blockchain are that it is very cost effective to run, compared to other centralized resources, due to the cost of operating being split amongst all the network participants.

      No one can alter the defining characteristics that govern Ethereum Classic base, unless certain conditions are met and changes are implemented by the developer team or a network wide consensus is reached for the changes to be applied.

      One disadvantage of operating on a blockchain is that generally, transactions with Ethereum Classic are final, meaning that is very unlikely that a transaction can be rolled back if a mistake occurs. Be careful when transacting cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum Classic and make sure you double check all the details of the transaction before submitting it.

      Ethereum Classic also boasts a higher degree of safety, as the mechanisms of the blockchain are incredibly hard to crack

      Ethereum Classic Advantages

      Decentralized Point of Control

      Ethereum Classic (ETC) is defined by a decentralized governance system, which does not rely on a single point of control to manage transactions on the network in the same way a bank would. Because of this Ethereum Classic’s network features a distinct advantage that makes it very difficult to counterfeit or imitate. Another advantage of being decentralized is that any attacks on Ethereum Classic’s network will have to be in multiple places at the same, whereas a bank or any centralized system will have an host of servers in one place.

      Cost Efficient

      Generally speaking, auditing records is a time consuming and expensive process, whereas for Ethereum Classic which stores all its records on the blockchain, this can be done with minimal effort and in a much shorter time.

      Establishing a Digital Identity

      You can create your own identity on the Ethereum Classic blockchain, which can be though of as an account of sorts. Whenever you open an “account” on the Ethereum Classic blockchain, you will be given a private key, which lets you interact with the blockchain, and a public key, which let others identify and interact with you.


      Since all information that is transmitted on the Ethereum Classic blockchain is stored and secured on a wide network of computers or nodes, you can always be sure that the information presented is valid and has not been tampered with.

      Ethereum Classic Supply Details

      Ethereum Classic is distinguished from traditional fiat currencies due to way the supply works for most cryptocurrencies. It cannot be printed like governments do with fiat, due to the maximum supply being 210000000 and this dictated by the base code that the Ethereum Classic network runs on. No more than 210000000 will ever exist unless major changes to the code are applied. Another interesting fact about Ethereum Classic’s supply is there can be two other types of supply aside from the maximum supply. One is the total supply which indicates the amount of coins there are currently in existence. For Ethereum Classic the total supply is 110635021. This is the sum of all Ethereum Classic units that have been mined or created since the network’s creation. . The other one is the circulating supply which for Ethereum Classic is 110635021. This can be different that the total supply due factors such as funds being locked in escrow, coins being locked in masternodes.
