The date of hard forks Atlantis in the Ethereum Classic network has become known.

During the videoconference on Thursday, June 20, Ethereum Classic developers came to an uneasy consensus on hard forks of a network called Atlantis, CoinDesk reports.

Despite certain differences, it was agreed that the update will take place at block 8,772,000. As expected, it will be found around 12:00 UTC on September 17 of this year.

In May, ETC developers disagreed on what improvements the upcoming hard forks should contain, but last Thursday they nevertheless found a consensus on the 10 proposals that should be included in the code of the future hard forks.

It is noteworthy that earlier in June, the developers agreed to launch Atlantis hard forks in the test network by the end of this month, while the launch of the code in the main network was to take place before the end of the summer.

However, a little earlier, Ethereum Classic Labs, the developer of the most popular client of the Classic Network Geth, insisted on activating hard forks on July 1. This decision was allegedly made under pressure from miners and exchanges based in Asia, which insisted on the fastest possible changes in the network.

About this, in particular, at the beginning of the month, said the Asian community manager Ethereum Classic Cooperative Christian Xu. However, a number of community representatives, including the founders of the research startup Gödel Labs Tang and Roy Zhou, accused SJ of falsifying such allegations.

“We asked [Ethereum Classic Cooperative] about Atlantis and got a normal“ we don't care ”answer. Also, some exchanges and miners told us that they had not heard anything about it. It all looked very suspicious, ”said Tang.

Passion flared and the position of Ethereum Classic Labs and its CEO Terry Culver, who initially opposed the postponement of the hardfork to a later date.

“I am totally against it. We cannot subscribe to this schedule and adhere to the plan we initially agreed with, ”he said a week ago.

Nevertheless, over the past few days, the position of Ethereum Classic Labs has changed towards a wider dialogue with the rest of the developer community. On Wednesday, the blog Ethereum Classic Labs posted an entry confirming these intentions and a new roadmap regarding hard forks.

The Atlantis update is paired with a slightly later upgrade called Agharta and should activate the changes that were formally proposed for the original Ethereum network in 2017. Their goal is to improve interoperability between the two blockchains and facilitate the migration of decentralized applications (dApps) from one network to another.

In April, a developer from the ETCDEV team, Donald McIntyre, said that the mutual integration of Ethereum Classic with Ethereum would create a truly safe and effective blockchain. In particular, he believes that combining the capabilities of both ecosystems would allow them to compete in the future with alternative projects - EOS, Tezos and Cardano.
