Analysis: Ethereum Classic Traveling Down an Alternate Path in a Bikini

The selloff in most digital currencies raised eyebrows for many, but I noticed that the Ethereum Classic Coin (ETC) was trading in its own world and rallied 14% this week while Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple all got smashed giving back between 7% and 25% respectively. This widened the spread between these active digital currencies and any pair trading (Long one DC and Short the other) strategies with ETC as the long anchor leg is killing it. I think these gaps in the pair trade spreads may be telling us a subtle story about the long-term value of these individual coins and we should be....

The continuation of the “original,” pre-fork Ethereum project seems to be letting go of plans as established by the Ethereum Foundation, and instead navigates a distinct path forward.

Ethereum Classic started off as what is perhaps best described as a protest movement, opposing a (perceived) bailout of Ethereum’s leaderless investment venture, The DAO. But the brand new cryptocurrency, which is actually the continuation of the pre-hard forked Ethereum chain, has since surprised many. Its currency, classic ether (ETC) has garnered a spot among the top altcoins by market cap, some big names in the cryptocurrency space endorsed the project and more developers are joining the project. To make it official, Ethereum Classic declared its independence from the former Ethereum....
