Definition

Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a type of cryptocurrency that is a continuation of the original Ethereum blockchain following the DAO attack in June 2016.

Ethereum is essentially a hard fork of the blockchain that was formed to refund the money that was siphoned during the attack (around $50 million).

Ethereum Classic assumes no hard fork occurred and is supported by those who believe in complete immutability of the blockchain.
