The Ethereum Classic (ETC) development team warns traders of a fraudulent EAgharta project trading non-existent Agharta coins on behalf of ETC. It appeared the day after the Agharta hard fork on the Ethereum Classic blockchain.
On January 12, Agharta hard fork was successfully activated on block 9 573 000 in order to improve the compatibility of the ETC network with Ethereum. In all likelihood, scammers decided to take advantage of this event and began to trade Agharta coins, hoping to confuse traders.
Needless to say, “EAgharta” is a complete scam, probably from the same people who did something very similar at Atlantis.
Stay away. ETC Agharta did not result in new “Agharta coins”. They are just trying to scam you. pic.twitter.com/BlaIBA3is4

Representatives of the fraudulent EAgharta project posted a tweet on behalf of Ethereum Classic with a link to their website, where users are asked to enter and save a password to create a new wallet. As stated on a fake site, otherwise users cannot access the account, restore keys, reset passwords or cancel transactions.
