You may have heard recently about the new hardfork that is prepared by the Ethereum Classic developpers’ team. Reminder: Announcement was made on June 19th that the it was in testing stage, and that the update was schedule for September
While we were introducing Ethereum Classic to Cruxpool, we were already working on making it compatible with this new update. As of today, we have witnessed absolutely no problem with this hardfork and we are happy to announce that we are now 100% compliant to this update.
If you don’t know what is a hardfork, it’s simply a major change in the protocol of a blockchain. For example, Ethereum Classic and Ethereum as we know them today are born from a common Hardfork.
This does not mean that Atlantis will create a separation between Ethereum Classic and a newborn cryptocurrency. On the contrary, the Atlantis update is designed to enhance the interoperability between Ethereum and Ethereum Classic.
The consequence of that is the creation of MET, a token deployed by ETC Labs and Metronome, that will be transferable between the aforementioned blockchains. In brief, Atlantis hardfork is a way for ETC to add EIPs to its core:
Absolutely not. Nothing will change for our miners, and there are no updates to do on your side, we have done the work in the backend and that’s all there is to say about it. Also, there will be no impact on your earnings (expected or real) – so you basically have nothing to take care of.
