Node Platform Contract Upgrade Announcement

During the polling cycles from 9:00 pm to 12:00 pm on June 3, Beijing time (the specific time depends on the block height). The Nebulas node platform ( will be temporarily suspended due to contract upgrades which include voting, voting management, deployment of new nodes, and node management.

During the update, the mainnet will continue to run normally and block generation of nodes will not be affected.

This Smart Contract upgrade mainly includes the node exit mechanism and PoD penalty mechanism. After the upgrade is completed, the PoD penalty mechanism will introduce a observation period where nodes that are hit with a penalty will be exempted from the freezing of NAS if the node generates a block within 7 days.

For details, see: NP289-PoD penalty rule adjustment.
