Today we want to share with you the latest development progress and how everything comes in play:

We want to introduce you our plan, called the “3-section”-update.

What is the “3-section”-update?
- For our latest changes we need to make sure that everything plays together nicely to guarantee a smooth and conflictless change of the protocol version and integration of all new features.
We came up with the idea of 3 seperate updates cooming in fixed timeframes.

Update 1 [18.03.2018] — Daemon Version v2.9 :
— Activation of the Liberio Framework
— Daemon-Update to allow the new protocol-version 70714
— Stratum-Update to allow the new ALQO-Stratum Protocoll which will allow the Developer-Fee to come in play

Update 2 [25.03.2018] — Daemon Version v3.0 :
— Disable block-validation on the old protocol-version 70713
— Daemon Update to introduce the new ZeroCoin UI
— Developer-Fee Countdown to be shown

Update 3 [01.0.4.2018] — Daemon Version v3.1 :
— Full-Release of Liberio Mobile Wallets
— Daemon-Update to disable connections to the told protocol-version 70714
— Daemon-Update to allow ZeroCoin+ transactions and ALQO Hypersend
— Daemon & Stratum Activation of the Developer-Fee
* First block that pays the Developer-Fee as well as allowing ZeroCoin+ transactions will be 207660.

Please keep in mind that adding all features and changes in a single update is not possible due to the huge changes on the protocols.
Splitting those updates up in three-parts will guarantee that everything is working nicely without the need of a FORK!

We are also going to release an Auto-Updater between Update 1 [18.03.] and Update 2 [25.03.] which is going to automatically keep your ALQO Daemon always on the latest version.
This will also help you to get through those three update phases.

It’s important to understand that you can either update to every single one of those updates in the next week or keep on your current version and update to version 3.1 on 01.04.2018.
Both methods will not loose you any ALQO and will not reset your MN-Ranking.

We are working closely together with exchanges and pool-owners which are most likely the most affected nodes in the network.

The following changelog is the full changelog for v3.1 — you can check this version out already in our testnet which is going to be released mid this week:
