Verge to Improve Security via Hard Fork

Verge cryptocurrency will reportedly undergo a hard fork on block 1 824 150 which should resolve stealth transaction issues and enhance privacy features
22 January   2137

Verge has announced that the hard fork of the coin will occur on block 1 824 150. The decision was made because some mining pools were not running the latest codebase, and as a result some stealth transactions did not get confirmed. Verge tried to soft fork, but not enough pools participated. The new hard fork will assure that miners are up to date and process stealth transactions.

What is more, the hard fork will make sure all transactions will be processed and confirmed even faster, and it will not affect coins in the wallet. After the hard fork, the users will have 6 days to update their wallets to then still have access to their funds. Moreover, balances at any exchanges will not be affected by the hard fork.
