Getting Started

What is Mantis?

Mantis is a fully featured client and wallet UI, developed from the ground up and written in Scala for the Ethereum Classic network (ETC). Created by IOHK to add robustness and variety to the ETC's client share, it includes optimizations and network upgrades that improve network security, sustainability, and performance in the long term.

The software follows the official Ethereum Classic specification and roadmap and also implements Ethereum Classic Improvement Proposals (ECIPs) introduced by ongoing efforts and discussed across teams in the ecosystem.

Client or Wallet?

Your first step is choosing whether you'd like to download and use the:

Mantis UI Wallet
or the
Mantis CLI client

The wallet has a user-friendly Graphical Interface and the client is a command line interface tool.
