- A bug was revealed after Ethereum Classic hard fork.
- ETC/USD settles above $7.00, focus on $8.00.
ETC discovered a bug that led to desynchronization of Parity Ethereum with ETC blockchain. The team has released a hotfix and asks all OpenEthereum node operators using this software to update to the latest version. The owners of Core-geth nodes were not affected.
ETC PSA: #OpenEthereum, is experiencing "poor syncing performance", NOT "a network split". A hotfix has just been released, v3.0.1.
The developers say that the chain split was avoided as OpenEthereum continues sending blocks to the main chain. However, there are issues with transaction confirmation and spontaneous blockchain reorganization.
The bug was discovered swiftly, thus no lost deposits were lost. Cryptocurrency exchanges continue accepting and withdrawing ETC.
