Ethereum Classic (ETC) is the inheritor of the original Ethereum blockchain. The cryptocurrency came into being after a contentious hard fork dating back to July 2016.
After the hard fork, Ethereum split into ETC and Ethereum ETH/USD. The ETC project describes itself as a “response to contract censorship on sister chain Ethereum” and says it has the “ability to resist censorship against all the odds.”
One of the more well-known ETC bulls is Digital Currency Group CEO Barry Silbert who often talks about the coin in public.
ETC has shot up 44% so far this week and is trading nearly 15% higher over 24 hours at $21.35. The coin was also seen trending among retail investors on Stocktwits at press time.
