Accept Ethereum Classic Payments

What is Ethereum Classic payment?

Ethereum Classic payment is a method of getting goods or services from merchants using ETC cryptocurrency. Ethereum Classic is a hard fork of the original Ethereum platform, which appeared in 2016 after the hacking of a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) based on Ethereum. The community split into two opposite camps, and the same thing happened with the project. In fact, ETC is the original version of the Ethereum blockchain. Although the projects are extremely similar, they have a number of differences: ETC has a limited issue, reduced fees, and it hasn’t switched to a PoW consensus mechanism.
