On February 5, 2020, Wednesday in an Ethereum Classic (ETC) core developer call it has been decided by a unanimous agreement that the Phoenix upgrade, which is responsible for solving some problems found in the Aztlan upgrade after it was moved to status: accepted, will be moved to status: the last call.
The status is the events related to Ethereum Classic blockchain’s ECIP “Ethereum projects” or Ethereum Classic Improvement proposal, which are technical writeups that describe suggested changes to the Ethereum Protocol. The finalized proposals are agreed by the volunteered Client developers and the users of Ethereum classic mainnet.
Every pull request is reviewed and discussed by the volunteer Ethereum Classic Client Developer and any developers on the open platform can contribute their opinions.
The process works if someone submits a new pull request or updates the existing pull request, it generates information to create a second draft of the existing draft present, by discussing and coming into a general agreement for the further process in the hierarchy and decides whether to Accept, Reject or Withdraw the draft.
The Accepted draft can lead to final call or rejected in the Final call before it gets replaced or Active.
ECIP grew out of the now Hard-Forked Ethereum DAO Hard-Fork repository at the time when there are no other differences between Ethereum Classic Mainnet and Ethereum DAO Hard-forked besides the DAO hard-fork.
In ECIP “Ethereum Classic improvement Proposal” two upgrades are dominant Aztlan and Phoenix and the estimated schedule date of June 10 of 2020 is hovering around the web.
The Details of upgrades are as follows:
- Aztlan Upgrade (ECIP – 1061)
It adds support for a subset of protocols which influence changes introduced in the Ethereum Foundation network via the Istanbul hard forks. The Aztlan upgrade will be added to Ethereum Classic Block number 10_500_839.
- Phoenix Upgrade (ECIP – 1078)
It will support backward compatibility, not like ECP-1884 which does not support ECIP-1061/ECIP-1072 and will be 100% compatible with the ETH mainnet. The Phoenix upgrade will be added to the Ethereum Block number 10_500_839 with Aztlan upgrade on the same day estimated as of June 10 2020.
Blocks as in blockchain are files where data related to the Bitcoin network are recorded, and there are non-volatile. Each block can be conceived as a page in the ledger. The Block number of Ethereum class, in this case, consists of the version number, hash of the previous block and the root hash.
