More Info on Ethereum Classic:


Ethereum Classic provides a way to manage digital assets without the need for intermediaries like banks. Ethereum classic also allows uncensorable smart contracts to be written, deployed and executed. The ETC network exists to preserve the principle of their Code is law. ETC has 129.5 million coins in circulation with a market cap of 5.1 billion.


Conclusion:


In terms of profitability, your best bet is still mining ETH. If the current price of ETC stays the same then compared to profits over the past 2 years, this is still looking good. Some of these cards preform better on ERGO and some do better on ETC.
