Ever stumble into Ethereum Classic and wonder what it’s all about? This isn’t your average fork, this isn't even a fork! During this 101 we dive deep into the history to understand why this project came to be. We explore The DAO hack, the ensuing community split, and of course dive into how the project has evolved since. If you thought this was some money grab trying to capitalize of the Ethereum name you are in for a surprise, this is a serious project with a serious vision. And also a little bit of fun, Brent and Karim lock in the first official CryptoBasic wager! Will Karim win or will Brent lose? YES!
