Monero scheduled network upgrade (March 9)

Sunday, March 3, 2019 | Monero

Note that this is a scheduled and consensual network upgrade. Thus, unlike the BCH / BTC split, a new coin won't be created.

Approximately the 9th of March there will be a scheduled network upgrade on the Monero network. To be sufficiently prepared, a user, service, merchant, pool operator, or exchange should run CLI v0.14.0.0 or GUI v0.14.0.0. The scheduled network upgrade introduces four major changes.

- First, some changes to the dynamic block size algorithm to fix the big bang attack.
- Second, a third PoW tweak (CryptoNight-R) to curb the ASICs currently present on the network and further preserve ASIC resistance.
- Third, a dummy encrypted payment ID is now added to each transaction to improve transaction homogeneity.
- Fourth, the development team simplified amount commitments by shrinking the size of amount encodings and using deterministic masks.

The binaries, once they are released, can be found here:
