Exchanges Halt Transactions for GRC


Mandatory Releases

As many of you that run Gridcoin wallets have noticed, or hopefully will see now, there was a mandatory update rolled out on the 22nd of August. Since then there has been another Mandatory Update Released. We are now at the latest mandatory release of 3.6.0.2.
You can find a Release note and the source code on the Gridcoin GitHub Repository.

Exchanges halting during this process

An update for exchanges requires at least two weeks’ notice. On August 21st, the day before the new Mandatory was released, all exchanges and services were notified of this. During the process of updating the wallets and rolling out the new mandatory version, most exchanges have halted their wallets.
We’ve had confirmations of the following exchanges or services:
  • Cointopay
  • C-CEX
  • Coinpayments
  • Cryptogames
  • OpenLedger
  • HolyTransactions
Notified exchanges or services without confirmation responses
  • Bittrex
  • Poloniex
  • Coinomi
  • Eobot

Block 1010001 – On 1st of September

At block 1010001 the Gridcoin wallets will require the latest mandatory version. On this date, all exchanges and services can guarantee that there is no old client on the network and start their transaction wallets once again.
If the production of blocks continues at the current rate of 900 blocks per day, we can expect this to occur on 1st of September around 2-4 PM UTC.
