About Ethereum Classic

Ethereum Classic is a fork of the Ethereum network that occurred in 2016 after a DAO hack. The Ethereum Classic network values immutability, trustlessness, and decentralization above all else. For these reasons, it has become a popular choice for developers and users who want to build decentralized applications (dApps) on a blockchain that cannot be censored or shut down by any centralized entity.
