We believe in the original vision of Ethereum as a world computer you can’t shut down, running irreversible smart contracts.

We believe in censorship-resistant platform that can be actually trusted – by anyone.” Our block explorer data: total coins supply, total network hash rate, last block number and total difficulty are freely provided by In 2017, the Die Hard fork was implemented in ETC, removing the Ethereum difficulty bomb.
