Team Zero Fortnightly Newsletter
Welcome to issue №15 of the Zero Newsletter, our fork special.
Our testnet has successfully completed all of its runs to feature the Development Fund, Block Halvings and 17 Million Max Supply.
We invited the pools to take part in a public testnet to ensure a smooth transition across to the mainnet in the lead up to our historic fork September 15, block height 412,300 and all has gone well. The only issue encountered was a compile on an earlier version of Ubuntu for Linux, but Cryptoforge had this closed out in a matter of a couple of hours as the Linux binaries were compiled on a newer version.
All pools and exchanges have been contacted and all are supporting the fork. It’s a bit of a logistical juggle, with 6 exchanges and over 10 pools, but we got there with directing the flow of information correctly for efficiency.
