Thus, the news got a great resonance on Twitter, e.g. one of the users claims that the cryptocurrency is "more alive than ever":

Other cryptocurrency enthusiasts speculate that the Ethereum Classic chain is to be benefiting from trader efforts in South Korea:

Given that the rumours are not just the rumours, ETC is to profit from the surge the same way as Monero and Ripple (Ripple's XRP price climbed 40% on surge in Korean trading) this week. For example, when Bithumb, the world’s most-used cryptocurrency exchange announced adding the support for Monero tokens, its value ballooned from around $52 to almost $97 in a period of hours.

Thus, at the time of writing, Bithumb is holding the first position in the list of cryptocurrency exchanges having a daily volume of more than $1.15 billion which is $500 million greater than 2nd-ranked Poloniex. It goes without saying, that the impact of the exchange on the market is hard to be overestimated.
