3 min reading

The world's second largest cryptocurrency system based on market capitalization.

World’s second largest cryptocurrency network through the method of market capitalization, Ethereum has split into two chains or versions. This split took place due to the sudden failure of the older Go Ethereum (Geth) attributes improve to ‘Hades Gamma’ patch. The patch was released on 24th August after a bug was found in mid-August 2020 in the 1.10.7 version of Ethereum network. 

Go Ethereum informed its users on Twitter on August 27 about the split and the entire intention of security issues with its 1.10.7 version. It verified with the users to update their nodes having Hades Gamma patch to the present version if they haven’t done so already. Geth is known as a command line interface for operating Ethereum nodes execute in Go Language. Geth supports the users to join Ethereum network, transfer amounts between accounts and ether.

If a split in the chain happens all the transactions will be verified by all the nodes. The split happens due to concern for Ethereum investors or Ethereum-based applications.

There is at least 38 per cent of Ethereum Network nodes were using older Geth versions. According to Andre Cronje, the founder of Yearn Finance users needs to stop doing transactions until the issue is secured or perhaps if the users have updated to the latest Geth version. The effect of the break seems to be low as there are more nodes are updating to Geth 1.10.8 version on a daily basis. The security lead for Ethereum Foundation, Martin Swende said informing about the forking gave most miners were updated and successfully the latest version in the longest node.
