The Official Review on the Network Issues From the Bytecoin Team

Dear Community,

The last 2 days have been very decisive for the entire Bytecoin project. BCN, which recently had an $8 million daily trading volume, is now trading at over $600 million in a 24 hours period. As a result, some network issues, which couldn’t have been audited without such an extreme load, suddenly appeared, and we've recommended to the exchanges that they should lock all deposits and withdrawals where Bytecoin is trading. The entire team has been working non-stop for the past 24 hours to investigate the issue and make the necessary fixes.

Update on 3.0.4 Adoption Rate
May 9, 2018

We estimate that 25% of nodes has upgraded to this latest version just hours after it was released by BCN team, of those 3.0.4 nodes only one reported some network issues, others seem to be fully in sync and working normally.

All users are strongly advised to help the network by upgrading their Bytecoin Daemons v.3.0.4 (for merchants) and Bytecoin Desktop v.2.0.4 (for individuals) available at https://bytecoin.org/downloads

The ASIC Statement: Clarification From The Bytecoin Team

During the past few weeks we’ve seen many of the active discussions about mining and the increased hashrate. However, this discussion moves far away from a mining problem and becomes more of a political decision. We’ve decided to build a text in the following logic to shed some light on this important situation.

A bit more transparency on the current development situation.

Hey there, Bytecoineers,

I’m here to tell you about the current development phase and deadlines. So, the current desktop software versions seem to be a bit out-of-date and contain some issues. That’s why on the 2018 roadmap we’ve said that some huge updates will happen, and it’s really the thing that the Dev team has to pay the most attention to.
