Ethereum Classic is a currency created after Ethereum hard fork, which happened on July 20, 2016. It supports the original version of blockchain and endorses the core values of freedom from third-party interference and censorship. The team of ETC developers are planning to closely follow Ethereum’s roadmap until the coin’s community is mature enough to make consensual decisions on further changes. Find out more on ETC official website.
