The Ethereum Classic (ETC) network will be undergoing a planned hard-fork at block 9,573,000 mil at approximately 2020-01-12 19:30 UTC.
This Agharta hard fork will be a change to the underlying Ethereum Classic protocol, creating new rules to improve the system.
To ensure a successful fork, please upgrade to a fork-compatible version.
The specification proposed for the hard fork is being implemented as below:
Classic-Geth, version 6.1.2 or later.
Multi-Geth, version 1.9.6 or later.
Parity, version 2.6.8-beta & 2.5.13-stable
Hyperledger Besu, version 1.3.7 or later.
Classic Geth will reach END OF LIFE on January 12th, 2020. The Agharta hard-fork will be the last hard-fork supported by Classic Geth. If you are a Classic Geth user, then migrate to Besu, Multi-Geth, or Parity now.
Thank you for your continued support.
