Distinguished Stakeholders of ETC,
In preparation for the Atlantis hard fork, ETC Labs is honored to work on upgrading the Classic Geth Client in collaboration with ChainSafe Systems, and in cooperation with ECC, Parity, IOHK, and the ETC community. The ETC Labs Core dev team has also made major contributions to Multi-Geth in preparation for Atlantis. We believe that ETC Labs Core dev team is among the best in the industry, committed to the high-quality technological development of public blockchain. Their newly-submitted code has been praised by many experts.
The Atlantis hard fork has entered its testing phase, during which time we will discover and fix any bugs or issues that may be caused by merging the new code with the original base code. Thanks to the significant preparation and planning of the dev team, any bugs have been quickly fixed and the tests have proceeded normally.
During this process, the ETC community has shown great attention to and support for the Atlantis hard fork. All stakeholders have fully participated in the discussions on the details, scope, and timing of the hard fork.
In implementing Atlantis, we intend to fulfill two key priorities: (1) develop high-quality blockchain software that preserves the security of the network; and (2) consider the opinions and concerns of the community. With these priorities in mind, we hereby propose to adjust the block height of Atlantis to #8,772,000 (around September 17) in the upcoming ECIP finalization call.
We look forward to our continued cooperation with the ETC community. ETC Labs will work jointly with all developers and teams to successfully complete the hard fork, making ETC stronger.
