I wanna use this thread to spread some facts about the upcoming soft fork.
First of all, I’ve made a website where you can track the current status of the soft fork: https://www.peercoinexplorer.net/forkwatch/
Soft fork means, that clients <v0.6 won’t be on another chain after the fork. v0.6 clients and the older ones will stay on the same chain.
The fork can not occur before Tue 12 Dec 03:40:00 UTC 2017. That’s hard coded into the client.
After this date, 90% of the last 1000 proof-of-stake blocks need to be “version 2”, meaning they need to come from a v0.6 client, in order to activate the soft fork.
It also means that clients <v0.6 that are mining or minting after the fork will get their blocks orphaned.
Please tell me if I missed anything and I will gladly update this main post.
Happy upgrading everyone!
