MoneroV is a private cryptocurrency fork of the Monero blockchain. A split will occur at block 1529810 when MoneroV miners will start to create blocks on the MoneroV network.

The new MoneroV blockchain will contain the history of all transaction up until block 1529810 and all Monero coin holders will receive 10x their XMR balance amount as MoneroV coins (XMV) after the fork.

MoneroV hard fork roadmapMoneroV Roadmap


  • Decentralized peer-to-peer blockchain transaction consensus
  • Using lower transaction fees and advanced modification to the core mechanism in the way MoneroV calculates transactions and balances
  • Sending and receiving addresses are obfuscated, as well as all amounts being transferred in all transactions, and the identity cannot be linked or traced to a transaction on the MoneroV blockchain


  • Coin Supply - Capped at 256 Million XMV. Smooth emission decline until minimum
  • Circulating Supply at Hard Fork - ~158 Million XMV (10x circulating XMR supply as airdrop)
  • Proof of Work - CryptoNight (to be changed)
  • Difficulty Retarget - Every block, adjusted difficulty initially after Airdrop
  • Block Time - Every 120 seconds
  • Block Reward - Minimum of 6 XMV per block at 184,467,440 XMV in total emission
  • Block Size - Dynamic, max 2xM100

Monero holders prior to the hard-fork split that will occur in block 1529810 will receive 10 times their holdings in MoneroV coins.

No official statements regarding the support of the fork by exchanges were made yet.

Monero V Hard Fork Postponed

The snapshot date is postponed to April 30, block 1564965 so as to facilitate the third-party services requests

MoneroV is a private cryptocurrency fork of the Monero blockchain. Previously we have reported about the Monero V hard fork after which all Monero holders as of block 1529810 should have become the owners of MoneroV on March 14, 2018. 

However, the team of the project has reported that due to the growing demand and increasing expectations from users, trading platforms, and large mining pools, it has decided to postpone the snapshot date to April 30, block 1564965 to facilitate third-party services requests.

New features:

  • Replay protection, transactions on the Monero blockchain will not be able to be replayed on the MoneroV blockchain.
  • MoneroV codebase is currently fully functional and tested on macOS Sierra, Windows, 64-bit and on Linux, 64-bit. 
  • Some new procedures will be tested, including testing the time gap between the snapshot date and mainnet release, and raising the minimum ring signature, that will help mitigate an issue that was raised that the hard-fork split might reduce the effective privacy set of ring signatures – one of three private properties of the Monero & MoneroV blockchains.

Moreover, MoneroV’s source code, MoneroV GUI wallet, the MoneroV daemon will be published on Github publicly for the community to audit before released in downloadable form.
