IOHK (Grothendieck)

Named after a leading figure in the creation of modern algebraic geometry, the IOHK Grothendieck Team is a motivated group of math and science-driven engineers and developers. At the forefront of team’s development is Mantis, a node client built from scratch using Scala, a functional programming language. Mantis easily connects to the IOHK Daedalus Wallet UI, allowing users to easily manage their ETC. The team’s focus is to securely and methodically establish a strong ETC ecosystem, with a solid foundation and immutability at its core.


The ETC Cooperative (the “ECC”) was created to financially support the growth and development of Ethereum Classic by funding three key aspects of the ETC ecosystem: development, marketing, and community. To that end they serve as a liason between various teams, maintain community-based software, and reach out to members of other Ethereum-based communities.
