GRAFT Network Major Update 1.1.2 at Block 64445

We decided to make the major network update even sooner due to the problems with ASIC and difficulty the nertwork has been experiencing over the past several days. The source code of the patch version 1.1.2 is now released and available for download from master. The binaries of the new release are located here:

The major network update itself is rescheduled for block height 64445.

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 as soon as possible. If you do not install the updated node before the block 64445, it will be disconnected from the mainnet after block 64445.

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’ (v1.1.2-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).
