Ethereum Classic (ETC) tweeted that the ETC mainnet was forked due to previous vulnerabilities in the Ethereum client Geth. On September 3, the ETC mainnet split due to the exploit which had previously affected the Ethereum mainnet on August 27. This was the result of an attacker discovering an exploit on the “Go Ethereum” client which impacted the older versions of the client. This led the blockchain to undergo an unplanned hard fork. As per data, soon after the split occurred, over 20% of the mainnet’s hash rate witnessed a drop. This decline likely came from miners or pools which had been using the unpatched version of Coregeth. In the while that it took for the patch to arrive, the network had already taken a hit. NVT ratio showed that the network value went down, following the exploit.
