Frequently Asked Questions

Bitvavo makes Ethereum Classic as easy as possible. Answers to a few the most common questions will serve as a kickstart in the world of digital assets.

What is Ethereum Classic? Ethereum Classic (ETC) is a cryptocurrency that originated on July 20, 2016 as a result of the demerger with the Ethereum blockchain and can be seen as the "original" version of Ethereum. Just like Ethereum, Ethereum Classic is a decentralized smart contract blockchain platform on which decentralized applications (DApps) can be built.
How does Ethereum Classic work? Just like Ethereum, Ethereum Classic is a platform that focuses on smart contracts. Smart contracts are programs that have been developed to automatically execute agreements in the manner agreed in advance without the intervention of an intermediary being necessary.

The example below illustrates how this works:
Suppose you want to buy a house and pay with ether. The agreements with regard to the agreement are laid down in a smart contract. The contract states that the purchasing party must pay the purchase price on the agreed date and the selling party must hand over the key and ownership papers.

If one of the parties fulfills its obligations arising from the agreement, the smart contract will keep this part in custody until the other party has also fulfilled its part of the agreement. Only then are both obligations released, so that it is ensured that the agreement is always fully or not executed.

How to store Ethereum Classic? You need a wallet in order to store and use Ethereum Classic. There are several options for saving and using Ethereum Classic.

Hosted Wallet
Hosted wallets are wallets where the access keys to your Ethereum Classic are managed by a third party such as Bitvavo. Access to your account is protected by a password, and possibly other advanced security methods. Once you are logged in, you can easily and conveniently manage your Ethereum Classic online. Bitvavo offers standard hosted wallets for all digital assets that are offered on the platform. Click here for more information about how Bitvavo saves your digital assets as securely as possible.

Software wallet
A software wallet is a program installed on your computer or any other desired device in order to use and manage your Ethereum Classic. By using a software wallet, you have full control over your "private keys" (and therefore your Ethereum Classic), so you are not dependent on third parties such as Bitvavo. The software wallet simplifies the process of accessing your Ethereum Classic. The risk is that if malicious parties have access to your device, your private keys (and therefore your Ethereum Classic) can be stolen.

Hardware wallet
A hardware wallet is a physical device on which you can store your Ethereum Classic offline. It is one of the safest ways to store your Ethereum Classic, because the private keys are stored on a seperate, offline, device. Access to this device is often protected by a password. In that respect, a hardware wallet can be compared to a safe in which your Ethereum Classic are stored.

You can use a hosted wallet, as offered by Bitvavo, to easily store, send and receive Ethereum Classic. However, you are, just like at a bank, dependent on a third party (Bitvavo) for storing your Ethereum Classic.

One of the advantages of Ethereum Classic is that you can send, receive and store your own digital assets without the relying on third parties. You do this by sending your Ethereum Classic, from your Bitvavo wallet, to your own software or hardware wallet.
