On Sunday, the Agharta update took place on the Ethereum Classic blockchain network, which implemented cryptocurrency compatibility with the Ethereum blockchain. According to Etcnodes, nearly 60% of the nodes accepted the update.
Ethereum Classic Cooperative Director Bob Summerville said the hard fork was successful: “The fork apparently went very smoothly (as expected) with a very high rate of node upgrades for Parity-Ethereum and Multi-Geth.”
But, according to his information, about 87% of Classic Geth nodes remained on the old software, ignoring the recommendations of the developers. Bob Summerville suggested that most of these nodes remained in parallel with the launched new ones.
The Agharta update complemented the last major network update in September and added the Ethereum opcodes that appeared there after the Constantinople fork of ETC.
