Ethereum Fluctuation Begins Due to DAO Attack

First of all, this term, which stands for Decentralized Autonomous Organization, refers to structures that operate and control a set of business rules without any human involvement. Organizations such as DAO work with Blockchain technology and are based on coded rules. Blockchain is preferred for transaction logging of financial data and program rules.

After this massive attack on the Ethereum network, the DAO community was divided into two. After the attack, the Ethereum community attempted to correct the situation and reinstate it. The other group in the DAO community decided to continue with the current situation on the network without doing anything. After this decision, they called themselves “Ethereum Classic”
