In a separate development, Ethereum Classic developers discussed a proposed hard fork called Atlantis, outlined in the Ethereum Classic Improvement Proposal (ECIP) 1054. The recap of the discussion was published by Donald McIntyre, coordinator for matters related to ETC development.
According to McIntyre’s post, the fork will take place on block 8,750,000 and conclusively separate Ethereum Classic from Ethereum’s blockchain. The developers will stay on a proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm, while the code update will not affect mining rules.
Two of the largest mining pools 2Miners and Ethernode have already expressed support for the proposed fork, possibly being the reason for ETC’s most recent boost in price.
