Ethereum Classic Developers Determined Block Number To Activate Agharta Hard Fork
Stevan Loja, Coordinator of the ETC Core Development Group, Specifies the Timing of the Agharta Hard Fork on the Ethereum Classic Blockchain.
“On December 12, ETC Core developers and ecosystem members agreed on a target block number to activate the Agharta hard fork in the main and test networks,” the notice says..
The Agharta update aims to add features to Ethereum Classic that were activated on the Ethereum blockchain along with the Constantinople and Petersburg hard forks earlier this year. In particular, it affects the Ethereum virtual machine (EVM) and will be the next step in increasing the compatibility of the two networks..
To date, the Agharta hard fork has already been activated on two Ethereum Classic testnets, and is expected to be activated on the Kotti testnet at block 1 705 549, which will tentatively be mined on Saturday. Activation in the main network should take place at block 9,573,000 on January 15, 2020.
In the near future, the developers promise to provide an official minimum viable client to participate in the update. They also point out that support for Classic Geth will end on January 15th, and Agharta will be the last hard fork to be carried out with this client’s participation. Classic Geth users need to switch to alternative clients: Besu, Multi-Geth or Parity.
Recall that the previous hard fork of the Ethereum Classic network called Atlantis took place in mid-September.
“Ethereum Classic and Ethereum are related chains. Collaboration during the fork of The DAO was definitely not desirable. However, both systems evolved with only abstract differences in views. The recent hard fork of Atlantis was aimed at increasing interoperability with ETH, and Agharta will be the second part of this goal, “ETC developers said earlier..
