What Is Ethereum?

Ethereum Classic Cryptocurrency

Ethereum is an open-source decentralized platform for managing smart contracts which was developed by a Russian-Canadian programmer Vitalik Buterin in 2013. The Ethereum mainnet, however, was launched only in 2015. Implemented as a virtual machine (EVM) and an open source platform, Ethereum simplifies the blockchain adoption worldwide. Ethereum’s goal is to enable developers to run their own decentralized applications (DApps) with the help of an open distributed network.

Ethereum Classic vs. Ethereum (ETC vs. ETH)

Ethereum project is definitely quite similar to ETC, but there are some key differences between these two crypto giants. First of all, we should say that it is Ethereum, not ETC functioning on the new blockchain.

So, ETC is actually the original Ethereum. ETH runs on the same protocol as ETH but has different functions and community. Ethereum is more of a software development company that is focused on growing and expanding its blockchain-based ecosystem. Ethereum Classic, on the other hand, has value due to the trading market activity.

Surely it can be added that both ETC and ETH are noteworthy projects. However, it is hard to skip the fact that power is currently on the ETH side with the insane Ethereum market cap.

Ethereum Classic (ETC) Cryptocurrency

Ethereum Classic network is fueled by its native cryptocurrency – ETC or Classic Ether. When it comes to ETC price predictions, there is really not that much we can tell besides the fact that Ethereum Classic was growing quite rapidly during its starting times. The holders can always monitor the Ethereum Classic news and charts on our blog or wallet widgets.
