Bytecoin Hardfork: Switch Height Announcement

Bytecoin Hardfork: Switch Height Announcement


Bytecoin network has finally decided on a switch height:

1629055

Considering that block time is around 120 seconds we can calculate an approximate time of it:

Monday, October 1, 2018, 7:11 PM GMT

After that point in time:

  • the Bytecoin network will be ready to accept transactions with 0 fee;

  • Bytecoin software versions prior to 3.3.0 would no longer be guaranteed to work correctly.

This network event is called the height switch.


What this means for our users:

  • If you use Bytecoin Desktop with version 3.3.0, then you are fine and don’t need to do anything;

  • If your funds are located on wallets and exchanges, consult the table below: 

bytecoin.money

Stocks.exchange

Poloniex

Changelly

TradeOgre

Crex24

Freewallet

HitBTC

Platform updated, don’t need to do anything


Other exchanges

Platform will update soon (no operations interrupted at the moment)


What this does NOT mean:

  • No doubling of coins;

  • No changes to keys or addresses;

  • No splits, blackouts, or downtimes.


Best regards,

The Bytecoin Team
