December 27, 2019

Ethereum Classic’s Agharta hard fork will include features of the Ethereum Constantinople fork and intends to make ETC fully compatible with Ethereum ETH.

On Dec. 26 a press release was shared with stating that ETC Labs will have full compatibility between ETC and ETH as the coming Agharta update is expected to create backward compatibility between the two networks.

ETC Labs CEO Terry Culver commented:

“Ethereum Classic Labs is one of the first incubators to support innovative projects on the Ethereum Classic Blockchain. The compatibility between the ETC network and the ETH network will accelerate development of the Ethereum Classic community and ecosystem.”

ETC And ETH Grew From The Same Root

ETC Labs further points out that ETC and ETH grew from the same root and that restoring “technical compatibility will improve development processes and allow for differences while reducing disruption.”

ETC Labs founder James Wo also commented on the upcoming hard fork:

ETC Core technology coordinator Stevan Lohja said that ETC core developers and participating ecosystem stakeholders had agreed on a target block number for mainnet activation as well as a testnet review period for greater assurance.

Lohja added:

“Core developers agreed to activate Agharta on mainnet at block 9_573_000 which is expected around Jan. 15, 2020”
