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
