Ethereum Classic Labs Accelerate is thrilled to announce seven finalists as part of Cohort II. We have selected projects and businesses that will grow and maintain the ETC community, expand social impact solutions, enhance interoperability with other blockchains, and provide white label solutions for enterprise needs. The finalists were selected from among 150 startup submissions and align with the vision and goals of the ETC Labs Accelerate program.

Ethereum Classic Labs’ mission is to drive the adoption, utilization and advancement of the Ethereum Classic protocol, tools and ecosystem.
