The cryptocurrency market surged by 7.1% today, with Bitcoin and Ethereum forks among the top performers.
Ethereum Classic, the original Ethereum chain that forked in 2016, surged by 22.9%.
Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin Cash, and Bitcoin SV have also significantly outperformed their much larger peer.
One reason for Ethereum Classics surge may be Ethereums upcoming transition to Proof-of-Stake.
Several 2017-era Bitcoin forks that rose to prominence during cryptos 2017 market rally have seen similar price action to Ethereum Classic.
