Welcome, Hard Fork 20! (including update info for Steem-in-a-box users)

in witness-update •  2 months ago

At 3 PM UTC today (25 Sep 2018), Hard Fork 20 was activated on the Steem network.

Any Steem server not running HF20 was promptly disconnected from the network, and the top 20 are now all producing blocks on HF20.

Unfortunately due to the new Resource Credits system, some people are unable to post, upvote, or even adjust their witness key. This will resolve itself over the next few days as the RC system reaches equilibrium.

How can I update my witness to HF20?

I've now put HF20 (0.20.2) onto the master branch, and the latest docker image. If you're upgrading from 0.19.6 or earlier please update your config file (see https://steemit.com/witness-category/@someguy123/the-easy-way-to-install-or-upgrade-to-hardfork-20-steem-in-a-box).

EDIT: now updated for 0.20.3 as of 5:10 PM UTC

Once your config is updated, make sure you're on the right branch:

cd ~/steem-docker
git checkout master
git pull

Finally, the same as every other Steem-in-a-box update:

./run.sh install
./run.sh stop
./run.sh replay

Once replayed, you'll be on HF20.

Fresh install and upgrade instructions at https://steemit.com/witness-category/@someguy123/the-easy-way-to-install-or-upgrade-to-hardfork-20-steem-in-a-box are still valid for 0.20.2

HF20 version 0.20.2 has been available for several days in Steem-in-a-box, and instructions were made available earlier in the witness channel on STEEM.CHAT.

Sorry for the delayed responses but this actually links in with the new updates on HF20. This is the comment i wanted to put on the update until i realised i could not with such low power;

This is great news even if this is first post since update for rc. i had also seen these problems being part of the accounts with low steem. Will this have a good big affect on new accounts as i think new users can very easily be put off using steem with the long times in getting an account?

And now after the update there are pros like possibly less spamming but also cons that new users can make very few comments without investing a lot into steem like myself who is really struggling with rc power for comments and therefore might put off new users from using steemit.

Good job Chris

It will be a interresting week !
