The Ethereum Classic Cooperative (the “ECC”) was created to financially support the growth and development of the Ethereum Classic protocol, a next generation blockchain platform for a new internet infrastructure. The ECC believes that the Ethereum Classic protocol can enhance the ways that information and value are shared in a digital economy, and is committed to doing its part to realize this potential. Featuring a flexible and intuitive smart contract programming platform that is powered by ETC, Ethereum Classic can propel the development of a global, secure, and decentralized Internet of Things.
The ECC has established guidelines for the deployment of its capital across three core investment areas: (1) development; (2) marketing; and (3) community. The ECC will also introduce accountability standards that will be used to monitor the progress of its investment program.
