The mission of the ETC Coop is to steward the development of the Ethereum Classic protocol and to support the growth of a mature ecosystem around that protocol. There are three pillars to this mission:

  • Accelerate adoption of ETC technology by individuals and enterprises through effective branding, marketing and education.
  • Foster collaboration between ecosystem participants including developers, miners, investors, enterprises and end-users.
  • Mature Governance and Transparency – efficient and transparent governance framework, including use of funds.
