Disruption of the Ethereum china block has caused some of the nodes to be disconnected from the main network. The developers have asked users to refrain from trading on the Ethereum network until the bug is resolved.
to the Report Crypto Potito, a technical glitch in the older version of Geth Client, has caused the Ethereum network to split. Go Ethereum is one of the three main clients of the Ethereum blockchain that is implemented using the Go programming language and most network nodes operate using it. Nodes running the older version of this client now do not have access to the main Ethereum network. This can increase the risk of a Double-Spending attack and the loss of network users’ assets.
Gath tweeted that a technical issue with the older version of the client had caused the Ethereum network to split. The Gath development team has asked all network nodes to quickly update their client to the latest version, version 1.10.8, which was released just a few days ago. A client is a program that is used to set up nodes in various networks.
Although most miners use the new version of the client and there is no risk of hard fork formation, Tim Beiko, an Ethereum developer, said the Flexpool, BTC.com and Bainance pools continue to work with They use the old and insecure version of this client.
Ethereum is apparently not the only network affected by this technical glitch; China’s Bionance Smart, Polygon and Dai networks may also be affected by the bug.
Rumors are circulating on Twitter that China’s Bainance Smart has also been affected.
Reports indicate that the fork caused 54% of the Ethereum nodes to be disconnected from the main network.
At the time of writing, the price of GAS in the Ethereum network is much higher than usual.
The developers have asked users to refrain from transacting on the Ethereum network until the bugs related to the client get fixed. This request can be a recommendation for users to refrain from transacting on other Ethereum-related networks.
