Vertcoin’s first reward halving is scheduled to happen next month. It will occur on block 840,000 and is forecasted to reach the target height on December 12, 2017.

What does this mean?

Every mined Vertcoin block contains a mining reward paid out to the miner (or miners in a pool) that solved the block and submitted it to the blockchain. Currently, that reward is 50 VTC. At block 840,000 the mining reward will be halved from 50 VTC to 25 VTC. There is no impact to coins you currently own and it requires no action on your part.

We will be launching a halving countdown website to help everyone stay up to date.

The major new upgrade to our consensus algorithm will be rolled out today and is expected to activate later this month.

Scalability is a concern for any blockchain that aims to be enterprise-ready, and yet few crypto platforms have addressed this satisfactorily. Bitcoin currently struggles along with a capacity of around 3 transactions per second, with Ethereum managing 5 tps. Obviously, such throughput is not enough to support the mass adoption for which Waves was designed.

Once nodes have updated with the new version, miners can start setting approval flags in their blocks. After 5,000 blocks (around 3.5 days), the Protocol checks to see how many miners have signalled acceptance of the new features. If a minimum of 4,000 blocks (80%) have approved the fork, it is automatically activated after a further 5,000 blocks.

We have set the hardfork for block 795,000, which is estimated to occur at around midday GMT on Friday 15 December 2017. Voting will end 3.5 days later, on 18 December, and activation will take place on 22 December. All being well, then, we will see Waves-NG up and running before Christmas, alongside a major new upgrade to the wallet. We’ll keep you posted on progress at this very important time in our history!

One crucial and exciting component we intend to launch on schedule is the Wagerr mainnet. This means Wagerr holders will be able to operate Masternodes and earn Wagerr for staking coins as soon as the mainnet starts! However, betting and Oracle functions will not be available, but will instead remain sandboxed in a limited testnet, which will launch and run in parallel. Our target for mainnet+testnet is January 15.
