Ethereum Classic is the continuation of the unaltered history of the original Ethereum chain. The ETC network exists to preserve the principle of "Code is Law". Ethereum Classic allows uncensorable smart contracts to be written, deployed and executed; ETC enables truly unstoppable programmable money. You can buy and sell ETC for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade USDC for ETC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade ETC to CAD based on the USDC price. To learn how to buy ETC, scroll down to see how to buy Ethereum Classic.

In 2014, Ethereum founders Vitalik Buterin, Gavin Wood and Jeffrey Wilcke began work on a next-generation blockchain that had the ambitions to implement a general, fully trustless smart contract platform. In 2016, after a controversial hard fork, Ethereum mainline spawned a new network with new consensus rules, giving birth to Ethereum Classic. Today, it continues to follow the original network rules and has maintained the original Ethereum vision ever since.

You may want to consider buying ETC if you would like to:

Preserve the original and unadulterated Ethereum code

Diversify your portfolio by introducing a variety of cryptocurrency assets

Buy and sell goods and pay for services on online/retail stores that accept ETC

Explore projects like NFTs, fungible gaming and other uses on the ERC20 network
