Hyperledger’s Besu, Parity and Multi Geth have launched Agharta-compatible clients.The Ethereum Classic network upgrade will take place in block 9,573,000 on January the 15th, 2020. It is one of the most awaited updates by the ETC community. The upgrade, as mentioned, will have Constantinople and St. Petersburg features. The next hard fork, Agharta, will take place on January 15th. The upgrade will serve a similar purpose as the Atlantis fork. ETC Labs has declared its intention to make the ETC network increasingly compatible with the ETH network. The main goal is to strengthen the development of the Ethereum Classic ecosystem.
The founder of ETC Labs, James Wo offered statements on the Agharta update. He said that this Hard Fork is a good sign, for ETC and the ecosystem, of the importance that inter-network compatibility is taking on. According to Wo, public blockchains get their strength from the robustness of their communities.
