Bytecoin Hardfork: Switch Height Announcement

Bytecoin network has finally decided on a switch height:


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:







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
