In a notable upswing, Ethereum Classic (ETC), positioned as the 21st largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, has experienced a substantial surge following the announcement of the Bitcoin ETF.

Soaring above $31, ETC achieved a yearly high at $31.99, reflecting an impressive gain of over 40%.

The surge in trading volume, witnessing an extraordinary 400% spike, signals a heightened interest from major traders. Despite this notable increase, the sentiment surrounding $ETC appears to remain neutral at present.

Block 19,250,000 marks the release of the Spiral Ethereum Classic update, slated for January 31, 2024. This impending hard fork is anticipated to bring substantial enhancements to the Ethereum Classic network.

The Spiral Ethereum Classic Hard Fork aligns with the tradition of compatibility updates, encompassing technical changes to various OPCODEs relevant to the network. Positioned as a crucial step, the Spiral Upgrade is designed to align the ETC Network with upstream EVM standards, streamlining contract development and migration processes.

As Ethereum Classic continues to make waves in the crypto sphere, the approaching hard fork and its associated improvements hold the potential to further elevate its standing and influence in the broader blockchain landscape.
