Monero (XMR) - Hard Fork

in monero •  7 months ago  (edited)

The upcoming scheduled protocol upgrade of March 9 is intended to fork at block height of 1788000.

To briefly provide some information regarding the upcoming scheduled protocol upgrade of ~ March 9:

  • Intended fork height of 1788000 (approximately March 9)
  • New release (0.14) will essentially be the 0.13.0.4 release (i.e. the release-v0.13 branch) + the consensus changes
  • Subsequent point release will include new features, bug fixes, and performance improvements that are currently present in master
  • PoW tweak will be CryptoNightR + a random change
  • Users ought to upgrade to the upcoming 0.14 release (CLI & GUI)
  • Pool operators ought to upgrade to the upcoming 0.14 release
  • Miners ought to upgrade their mining software to a version that supports the new PoW algorithm
  • Mobile wallet users (e.g. Cake Wallet, Monerujo, X wallet, MyMonero, Edge) ought to upgrade to a version that supports the consensus changes
  • Presumably MyMonero will also release a new version of their desktop apps that supports the consensus changes
  • You do not have to move / transfer your coins in advance of the scheduled protocol upgrade to be sufficiently prepared
  • As far as I can see (currently), this will be a consensual upgrade and thus no additional coin will be created
