Technical analysis of ETH/USD for 02/10/2019

Crypto Industry News:

Testnet network Ethereum under the name Istanbul (which operates under the Ropsten testnet) was launched on September 30. Considering the existing problems related to the dates of the planned hard forks, this can be considered a great success. The whole was able to run even two days before the earlier announced date, which fell on October 2.

Unfortunately, after the activation of Ropsten an unplanned fork occurred. So now two chains are working.

The issue of the community centered around the Vitalik Buterin platform was explained by the community manager at the Ethereum Hudson Jameson Foundation. In his tweet from yesterday, he described what happened. Today, some miners are still mining the old version of Ropsten. Another copy of its new, updated version. The programmer, however, calms down. The problem is to be solved. Information should not worry investors: they are testnets, so that such errors come out during their duration.

Jameson also explains what exactly happened. The genesis of the problem is the nature of blockchains based on the proof-of-work algorithm, including Ethereum. The miners in them must independently update the software to be able to dig as part of a new chain. This time some of them did not and the result was an unplanned division.
