The Bitshares TESTNET has successfully hardforked. The hardfork includes BSIP0018 and some minor consensus upgrades. Testing is being performed before being given the all clear for the changes can be merged into the Bitshares production network.

BitSilver has been affected by a global settlement event which has prevented the smartcoin from being borrowed into existence.
