Ethereum Classic (ETC) Information{coin_name} ({symbol}) Information

Decentralized. Immutable. Unstoppable. Gouvern Yourself.

Ethereum Classic is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract functionality. Ethereum Classic is a continuation of the original Ethereum blockchain - the classic version preserving untampered history. Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a smarter blockchain, it is a network, a community, and a cryptocurrency that takes digital assets further. In addition to allowing people to send value to each other, ETC allows for complex contracts that operate autonomously and cannot be modified or censored.

Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers

What is Ethereum Classic?
Ethereum Classic is a secure, censorproof, reliable, public, trustless and decentralized platform for running applications.
How is Ethereum Classic related to Ethereum?
To understand the relationship it is important to know the history. It is especially important to be familiar with the DAO attack and how the Ethereum Foundation responded to it. Also, it is important to be familiar with the strong objections described in the Ethereum Classic Declaration Of Independence.
How is Ethereum Classic related to Bitcoin?
Bitcoin was the first blockchain application. Ethereum Classic is a general blockchain platform to run many more types of applications than Bitcoin can.
What is a smart contract?
Smart contracts are computer systems that manage assets such as automatic teller machines and the Bitcoin system. Ethereum Classic is able to run many types of smart contracts. If Ethereum Classic smart contracts are not mainly financial, it makes more sense to emphasize their autonomy by referring to them as agents.
What is ether?
Ether and ETC denote the native cryptocurrency used to pay for tasks such as installing new smart contracts.
What is a dapp?
A dapp is a decentralized application. They are also referred to as smart contracts on the Ethereum Classic system. The term is used to distinguish applications that run on blockchains from centralized applications.
What smart contract programming languages are there?
Solidity is similar to Javascript and the most popular. Serpent is similar to Python and also available. LLL is yet another choice that is similar to Lisp. There are other smart contract languages being developed as well.
What is an uncle?
Several miners compete to submit blocks to the blockchain. Inevitably some miners will lose the competition. The blockchain references the losing blocks to make the blockchain more secure. These losing blocks that contribute to the security of the blockchain are referred to as uncles. The term comes from the fact that blocks have preceding parent blocks. The losing blocks are not parents but are still related to the parents. Hence they are like uncles.
What is a coinbase?
A coinbase is a special transaction, in every block, that creates new ether added to an account selected by the miner of that block. It can also refer to the primary account of a user.
What is a blockchain?
A blockchain is a special type of distributed database. The most significant attribute of blockchains is that no one controls them! There is no one everybody needs to trust to manage it. That is why they are referred to as being trustless. Users submit tasks in transactions that are grouped into blocks that are linked together to form chains.
What is gas?
Gas is a made up unit used to denote the amount of resources required to do tasks such as installing new smart contracts.
