The story behind Ethereum and Ethereum Classic is very interesting to say the least. Join us to learn about how and why Ethereum Classic was created and its implication on how hacks caused by faulty code have been settled via blockchain hard forks or financial reimbursements, to crypto investors. We will discuss the arguments posed by Bitcoin (or Blockchain) Purists and their argument against the creation of Ethereum Classic.
