About our team

Ethereum Classic (https://ethereumclassic.github.io/) is an independent community driven blockchain continued after EF (a foundation originally started Ethereum blockchain) moved to a separate fork by introducing censoring transactions into their blockchain. Ethereum Classic community opposed that fork and kept original chain, because it believes in Blockchain Immutability and Code Is Law principles of blockchain.

How We Work

  • Remote Teamwork: ETC has a community based worldwide, and collaboration - with these international members is crucial

  • Consistent Building and Testing: ETC focus is not to "move fast and break things". ETC is focused on developing well thought out infrastructure that has security and stability at its foundation, as we are aiming to build the future of the internet
