The crypto market marked a strong bearish impact in the middle of the week. From the last couple of days, most cryptocurrencies are on the path of recovery. The improvement has also helped Ethereum Classic (ETC) to recover from past losses.
According to the latest news, the Edge wallet has added support for Ethereum Classic in the form of Compound Governance token (COMP). Also, there are few updates added to Edge’s FIO integration in context to the protocol for new users.
With a whooping smart contract platform, Ethereum Classic was designed for supporting decentralized applications (dApps). It is said to be the legacy chain. In mid-2017, the Ethereum community was forked away after the contentious hard fork from the legacy of the Ethereum chain.
Similar to Ethereum, Ethereum Classic also features a smart contract processing optimized virtual machine known as the EVM or Ethereum Virtual Machine. ETC is used for incentivizing miners and transactions to secure and run the platform. Ethereum Classic offers an inflation schedule and a more defined monetary policy with no intent to transact to a PoS (Proof of Stake) design.
The Ethereum Classic community concentrates on censorship resistance, proof of work, immutability, and a capped and predictable inflation schedule. Reportedly, the Edge wallet has also added support for the brand-new governance token of Compound dApps: COMP. It is a decentralized money market standing on Ethereum.
