Patch 1.1.1 Has Been Released – Major Network Update on Block 65110

We decided to make the major network update sooner in order to minimize the possibility of hashrate attacks. Patch version 1.1.1 is now released and available for download from master. The major network update itself is rescheduled for block height 65110, around April 14th.

Each GRAFT network node must be updated to the new software version before that block/date, otherwise, the node that wasn’t updated is going to be on the wrong version of the blockchain. This release contains the ASIC-resistance changes in the hashing algorithm and enhanced difficulty adjustment algorithm, which are supposed to protect GRAFT blockchain from most hashing attacks and stabilize the block intervals.

As another reminder, major network update means that if you are running the GRAFT network node (graftnoded daemon), you must upgrade it to the current software release between now and April 14th. If you do not install the updated node before April 14th, it will be disconnected from the mainnet after block 65110.

In order to check whether you are running the right version of GRAFT software, launch graftnoded daemon in terminal window (in interactive mode) and type help command. If you are running the right version you should see Graft ‘Beta Lyrae’ (v1.1.1-release) in the first line of the help result.

Note that the users of mobile and desktop wallets are not affected by the upcoming network update and don’t need to do anything – as long as they are still connected to the default proxy supernodes (if you are connected to your own supernode, however, do not forget to upgrade the underlying network node).

About GRAFT Project

GRAFT is a blockchain based payment processing network the functions similarly to a credit card processing network with off-chain authorizations and in-network atomic swap based interchanges. The network is completely decentralized, able to work cross borders and adapting to local regulatory environment. In addition to decentralization, GRAFT solves four biggest problems that exist in cryptocurrency at a point-of-sale today – privacy, speed, fees, and integration. Technically, GRAFT Network is a two layer (proof-of-work and proof-of-stake) blockchain with proof-of-stake based authorizations and economically incentivized participation with opportunities for mining, authorizations, in-network exchanges, gateway hosting, merchant services, etc.

GRAFT is open-platform, open-source, community-driven project.
