LeviarCoin team has unveiled the date of upcoming hardfork and reasons for it.

On the 11.01 we increased the block size because some transactions were too big and that resulted in coins being locked in the wallet, the fork was successful, txs in the pool were successfully mined and the coins were unlocked but now the same thing happened again, because tx size is unpredictable, so we were going to increase the size from 200k kb to 1mb to have a block size bigger than the max tx size mineable. To do that we were going to do another fork, but after some consideration we thought instead of taking two weeks to do a fork to just increase the block size.

Developers decided to switch to monero’s code. They say that this will fix the block size transaction and give new features like:

  • offline wallet (Mnemonic seed),
  • RingCT,
  • subaddresses,
  • Multithreading for daemon and wallet,
  • Rpc wallet
  • a more stable daemon’s code

But more important, as developers say,  this will save them a lot of time and will allow them to work on other aspect of the project.

The fork will take place on 1st of March 2018 and developers recommend not to make any transactions until that time.

Referring to anonymous sources, the Financial Times and Reuters report that this step, if done, will be aimed at increasing the attractiveness of the platform.

The Quorum open source project was launched in 2016 and is a private version of the Ethereum blockchain. JPMorgan presented the project at the annual Sibos conference.

We continue to believe distributed ledger technology will play a transformative role in business which is why we are actively building multiple blockchain solutions. We’re not going to comment on speculation, but Quorum has become an extremely successful enterprise platform even beyond financial services and we’re excited about its potential.

Reuters could not find out if the current employees of the Quorum project would join the new venture. It is also unknown what role the new head of the innovation center of the blockchain of JPMorgan, Ember Bolde, currently responsible for the development of Quorum, will do.
