  • The bomb is delayed until late 2017.
  • There will be another update coming in January to fix replay attack issues.

Article from discussing the successful ETC hardfork.“Ethereum Classic succesfully hard forked the morning of October 25th. They made an upgrade to their network to stop attacks exploiting a vulnerability in the system.”
