Overview

This is the v6.0.1 DigitalNote network wide update.

Release notes:
There was a bug from the original XDN code that caused the block reward at height 704,000 to increase back to 320,000XDN per block. This update fixes that via a hardfork at height 704,614 and also applies a small fix to our difficulty adjustment algo (LWMA2).

The bug became apparent today and has been around ever since XDN's conception. The old Minergate chain will suffer the same problem. Essentially the block reward was being bit shifted and at block 704,000 when the height was divided by 11,000 (halving interval) the reward was shifted by 64 bits, bringing it to 320,000 XDN. You can examine the tech details for yourself in the old version of currency.cpp in the baseRewardFunction. Although it is an unfortunate occurrence, it would have been very difficult to discover before hand without a full audit of all the previous code. This patch will fix the issue and cause a fork upgrade at height 704614. This is a MANDATORY upgrade.

Overview

This is the v5.0.2 DigitalNote mandatory network wide update. On block 669,369 (approximate date June 27, 2018), there will be a hard fork on the DigitalNote network. This is a re-scheduled and consensual network upgrade, so unlike the BCH/BTC split a new coin won't be created. Rather, there will be a split in the DigitalNote blockchain where the consensus will start following the post-fork (or "new") chain instead of the pre-fork (or "old") chain. To be sufficiently prepared for the scheduled network upgrade, users should download and run the new daemon (v5.0.2) or GUI wallet (v1.0.15c-beta) BEFORE block 669,369. A blockchain resync is not needed. Only this version will work after the fork of June 27th. If you download/sync with the blockchain using the old digitalnoted (v4.0.3) or old GUI (v1.0.14-beta) after the hard fork, you will be on the old chain.

Release notes:

  • Proof-of-work change to CryptoNightV1 (variant 1 also known as "monero7") to remain ASIC resistant at fork height
  • Difficulty adjustment algorithm has been updated to Zawy's LWMA-2 to resist hash and timestamp attacks at fork height
  • Seed nodes updated to be operational (no more unresponsive seeds from old dev)
  • Block target reduced to 2 minutes at fork height
  • Difficulty is hard-coded to “reset” back to GPU levels for blocks immediately following the fork so that the network continues to work as intended and does not stall
  • GUI embedded pool miner now works
  • Latest checkpoints and small Payment Gate bug fix
  • Arch Linux compile fixes
  • Reset difficulty for 61 blocks to 1,000,000 to overcome drop in hash rate
