Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a smart contract blockchain that separated from the Ethereum mainnet in 2016 after a security breach – The DAO hack. The hack forced the Ethereum developers to split on how to address the security breach. One side demanded that the blockchain should be rebooted to delete it, while another thought it was unnecessary.

The group that opposed the rebooting to the blockchain renamed to Ethereum Classic, while that which adopted it became Ethereum. Ideally, Ethereum Classic is the original Ethereum. The network comprises a blockchain ledger, native ETC tokens, and smart contract (autonomous blockchain programs) capability.
