ETHEREUM CLASSIC ‑ ETC

Historically, this is Ethereum as it started. This cryptocurrency emerged from the hard fork within the community after Ethereum was the victim of a major hack in 2016.

While most developers wanted to start over as if the incident had never happened, a handful of diehards chose to move on and accept the situation. Although less popular with developers than Ethereum, Ethereum Classic can recover features implemented on the Ethereum blockchain.
