A decentralised venture capital fund running on the Ethereum blockchain called the DAO hack raised around 168 million US dollars in May 2016. One month later, someone used a security hole to move 3.6 million Ether (at this time around 50 million US dollars) out of the DAO’s funds. In July 2016, the community voted that a hard fork should restore the stolen funds by creating a new Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum Classic is the unforked version of the original Ethereum blockchain, which still contains the stolen funds.
