On the morning of 12 January, the Ethereum network Classic (ETC) completed a hard-fork Agharta. The upgrade was on the block 9 573 000.
The hard fork went according to plan and involved nearly 57% of the GBR. Ethereum nodes Getc, Multigeth and Besu have already started synchronization.
It has been almost four years since then, as Ethereum Classic separated from Ethereum. Note that ETC is constantly involved in rebuilding technical links and communities between the two blockchains. Agartha is part of efforts to restore relations with Ethereum and continues the chain of updates Atlantis, Constantinople and Petersburg.
Now Ethereum Classic seeks to consolidate around the best customers – full nodes, which handle network requests – similar to Ethereum. After the hard-fork client Agartha Geth Classic outdated, and Parity Technologies will handle about 75% of the queries in the network ETC.
Currently, ETC has 1 customer Besu, 80 clients Geth, Geth 167 customers Classic and 252 of the ethereum client Parity, for a total of 500 clients on the platform.
