The Ethereum Classic (ETC) community has received news after its director, Anthony Lusardi, announced through the social network Twitter that Metamask, the Ethereum’s browser and wallet, will soon offer support to the ETC blockchain. The executive also said that, although the support is not yet finished, the work continues to develop.
This new still undergoing partnership could generate new possibilities for Ethereum Classic (ETC) and its ecosystem.
Some news articles even reported that Metamask already supported the Ethereum Classic (ETC) cryptocurrency, so Lusardi felt the need to come out to state that Metamask’s support for ETC is not officially confirmed.
We work together and hope it will be included. I must say, the chances are high. But it’s not official.

Metamask support for Ethereum Classic (ETC) would greatly benefit the ETC
Metamask is a plugin created as an extension for Chrome, Opera, Firefox, and Brave Internet browsers, which allows you to interact with Ethereum (ETH) blockchain and will soon support Ethereum Classic (ETC), also.
The program can run Ethereum’s decentralized applications (DApps) without the need for a complete node.
Also, Metamask has a secure identity vault and a wallet for Ethereum (ETH) transactions. The software, which is known for its fox mascot, bridges the gap between the user interfaces for Ethereum (ETH) and the web.
Ethereum Classic (ETC) was born out of an Ethereum (ETH) blockchain fork when the implementation of the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) failed. Let’s remember that after an exploited vulnerability, the DAO project was hacked, resulting in the loss of more than $60 million in ETH.
To financially support Ethereum Classic (ETC) in its development, marketing, and community, the ETC Cooperative (the ECC) was created. The goal is to provide funds for community members to develop their own projects, according to the ECC’s official portal.
Above all that, the future Metamask support for Ethereum Classic (ETC) would benefit the ETC, increasing its usability and adoption rate.
