About Classic in Orbit

This is a blog mainly about Ethereum Classic. I write down ideas and progress about Ethereum Classic development. I mainly work on Ethereum Virtual Machine and development of full Ethereum clients.

This blog is also available on IPFS /ipns/that.world/~classic.

Wei Tang (@sorpaas) is a Rust developer currently working at ETC Dev Team.


Below are some useful projects for Ethereum Classic network.

  1. Cross-Ethereum Specification Repository

    Oxidize cross-Ethereum specifications and developments.

    A repository for non-consensus-layer specifications focusing on standardization and sharing innovations and solutions between different Ethereum-compatible chains.

  2. etcql

    GraphQL Interface

    etcql allows users to query all the current account states on the blockchain via the GraphQL interface. It uses a pay-what-you-want subscription. Right now it only supports the Classic blockchain. Ethereum blockchain support might be added if there’s enough interest.

  3. Blockchain Data Archive

    Available for Analysis in SQLite Format

    This is the Ethereum Blockchain data archive, stored in SQLite format, available to download for analysis. It has all current account information except the storage data. Data is updated once per day and the updating service is sponsored by ETC Dev Team. If you find the data is not updating or have any question using it, please email Wei Tang.
