Ethereum Classic Developers Confirm Atlantis Hard Fork On September 17th

Classic Geth Client of ETH Classic is on its way out and soon the Atlantis hard fork will be executed.

In preparation for the Atlantis hard fork, ETC Labs has worked on upgrading the Classic Geth Client in collaboration with ChainSafe Systems, and in cooperation with ECC, Parity, IOHK, and the ETC community. The ETC Labs Core dev team has also made major contributions to Multi-Geth in preparation for Atlantis.

Currently, Atlantis hard fork has entered its testing phase, during which time the team will discover and fix any bugs or issues that may be caused by merging the new code with the original base code.

In completing Atlantis, they have two key priorities: (1) develop high-quality blockchain software that preserves the security of the network; and (2) consider the opinions and concerns of the community.

The team is proposing to adjust the block height of Atlantis to #8,772,000 (around September 17) in the upcoming ECIP finalization call.

Apart from the hard work, and the attention to the detailed attitude by the ETC community for the support towards the Atlantis hard fork, the ETC Labs also gave praise to the stakeholders’ support and enthusiastic association in the considerations made for the ‘details, scope, and timing of the hard fork.’

Notably, at the beginning of the month, the company consulted with the core developers, exchanges, mining pools, and other key stakeholders, who were from North America, Asia, and Europe and came up with a timetable schedule for ECIP-1054. The team is currently right on schedule and looks like there will be no delay on the set day.
