Cryptocurrency exchange OKEx has announced support for Ethereum Classic's upcoming Atlantis hard fork. In a blog post published on Sept. 10, OKEx announced that the exchange will support ETC's hard fork, estimated to take place between Sept.
12 and Sept. 13, 2019 at block height 8,772,000. OKEx warned in the announcement that during the planned period, users should deposit their ETC to OKEx in advance since the exchange will handle related technical issues.
As previously described by Cointelegraph, Atlantis is planned to be a consistent, no-rush update that would ensure compatibility of ETC with Ethereum, leading to an easier collaboration with sibling blockchains. The hard fork is also expected to improve ETC's functionality and stability. According to the Atlantis hard fork proposal on GitHub, "Establishing and maintaining interoperable behavior between Ethereum clients is essential for developers and end-user adoption, yielding benefits for all participating chains." In January, ETC developers were alerted of a possible attack on the network by Chinese blockchain security firm SlowMist, which was relayed to the wider community on Twitter.
