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.

Social platform for petitions Change.org announced the launch of a screensaver that mines Monero on users' computers. All tokens will be transferred to the charity fund of Change.org. This is reported by Coindesk.

This initiative was launched in partnership with the marketing agency Tracelocke Brazil.

Representatives of Change.org report that the screensaver will consume resources only when users do not use the computer. According to their calculations, if 10 thousand computers will run the screensaver for 12 hours a day, the charity fund will be transferred $ 10 thousand monthly.

At the moment the program is available only for Windows users and the platform did not report on the release plans for the version for macOS.

Note that at the end of April, a similar action was launched by the Australian unit of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund; (UNICEF). The website "Page of Hope" mines Monero cryptocurrency.
