Ethereum Classic preserved the original proof of work consensus model behind Ethereum by rejecting the 2016 hard fork thus staying true to the principle of immutability. ETC is decentralized, turing complete platform for the deployment of smart contracts. Smart contracts are applications that run exactly as programed free from risks such as downtime, censorship, fraud, and other third party interference.
ETC remains true to original thesis of Ethereum by remaining truly immutable and untampered. ETC is a neutral network where outcomes are determined solely by the code of the programs underway. Interactions are determined by transparent open source programming in which reversals are impossible.
