1. What is Ethereum Classic?

Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a decentralized platform that allows for the creation and execution of smart contracts, which are self-executing contracts with the terms of the agreement between buyer and seller being directly written into lines of code. It is open-source, meaning that anyone can access and contribute to its development. It is also resistant to censorship, downtime, fraud, and outside interference, making it a secure and reliable platform for conducting transactions. The creation of Ethereum Classic came about due to a disagreement within the Ethereum community on how to handle the hack of The DAO, a decentralized organization built on the Ethereum platform. While the majority of the community opted to implement a hard fork to reverse the hack and return the stolen funds, a minority chose to stick with the original version of the Ethereum blockchain, leading to the creation of Ethereum Classic.
