The DAO hack gives rise to Ethereum Classic The DAO hack and resulting hard fork split the Ethereum network into two separate chains: Ethereum and Ethereum Classic (ETC). The DAO was an Ethereum-based venture fund that managed to raise ~$150 million in Ether in an April 2016 initial coin offering (ICO).

The sale took place between Jul. 22, 2014, and Sep. 2, 2014. The remaining 12 million ETH (20% of... Learn more about Ethereum Classic's supply & distribution.
