Ethereum Classic (ETC) broke years of downtrend against Ethereum (ETH) during the recent correction. While both cryptocurrencies declined heavily from their all time highs. Ethereum (ETH) showed a lot more weakness compared to Ethereum Classic (ETC) which resulted in Ethereum Classic (ETC) gaining against Ethereum (ETH).
