However, features developed on the Ethereum network that could potentially compromise security and make it prone to centralization are not supported by ETC, Artamonov noted. He added that smart contracts and decentralized applications (DApps) built on the Ethereum blockchain will also function on the Ethereum Classic network.

The computer science and management graduate clarified that developer tools created for Ethereum will work with Ethereum Classic as well. The developer tools would also be compatible with most Ethereum forks and private Ethereum-based networks, Artamonov explained.

He continued: “So, technically we have multiple public networks [that are] compatible with each other in 99% [of] cases. Notice that it’s comp...
