What Is Ethereum?

Ethereum vs Ethereum Classic

Ethereum Classic is the original Ether that was created in 2014.  In June of 2016 an Ethereum contract known as  ‘The DAO‘ executed some poorly reviewed code that sent investors money to an unknown users Ethereum address.  In an attempt to cover their own financial losses, the Ethereum foundation decided to hard fork the coin to return all of the lost Ether.  The hard fork took place on July 20th, 2016.

This didn’t sit well with the Ethereum community because the purpose of decentralized blockchains is to have immutable ledgers that no central authority can disrupt.  By hard forking the coin, The Ethereum foundation proved that they don’t care about the fundamentals of what Ethereum was supposed to be, so the community split and many refuse to support the Ethereum foundation since trust has been broken.  Now we are left with two separate Ethereum blockchains, Ethereum Classic (ETC) and the centrally controlled Ethereum (ETH).  You can mine either coin and both are available for trading on the worlds biggest cryptocurrency exchange websites.
