I currently run Forked Ethereum via Parity. I'm assuming my Ether from before the fork is available on this chain. However, does it also still exist on the Ethereum Classic chain? I tried researching this and saw something about how you had to 'split' your Ether across chains, which only confused me more.
The reason I'm asking is Poloniex just added ETC - Ethereum Classic, and now I'm wondering whether my Ether persisted on both chains and can now basically be sold twice if I run both chains (on separate computers). Which seems somewhat strange. Can anyone weigh in?
Edit: apparently it's true - would still like some more info on this.
