Ethereum Classic is up by 26% in the past 24 hours, bringing its week long gain to 18%.
Ethereum is up by 6% in the past 24 hours. On the 7-day chart, the cryptocurrency has gained 5% over the week as the Merge, the upgrade that would see the Ethereum blockchain morph to proof-of-stake from proof-of-work consensus protocol.
The merge is still expected to happen around Sep 13-15. What’s happening today is the Bellatrix hard fork, which *prepares* the chain for the merge. Still important though – make sure to update your clients!
