Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a hard fork of Ethereum (ETH). The hard fork took place on October 25, 2016, as a reaction to the reversal of a hard fork that took place on Ethereum that undid a hack to one of the smart contracts running on top of Ethereum. The hard fork was driven by the ideology that a blockchain should be immutable and, therefore, transactions should be irreversible.
