Ethereum Classic is the remaining blockchain of Ethereum (ETH) after the hard fork event in July 2016. Where a hacker found a loophole in the smart contract called TheDAO. TheDAO is a Decentralized Autonomous Organization that gathered up around 150 Million USD in Ether from investors. Due to a large amount of funds stolen the Ethereum foundation decided to hard fork ETH. Concerns were raised but the hard fork vote was final.

That’s when people with strong believes in immutability and against censorship decided to continue working on the old project, even if million of dollars of ETC was in circulation from TheDAO hack. To some, code is law.
