Sentinel Updating Guide

MINING POOL OWNERS:

Miners, Please make sure to adjust your mining pool software before the Development fee and Superblock sporks are issued. If not, your blocks may be rejected. If you have any suggestions on how to update rpc command getblocktemplate or any core code updates for your mining software, please contact @calypso on Discord or post an issue/PR on Github.

This update includes:

1. MASTERNODE COLLATERAL CHANGE

The masternode collateral has been changed to 10,000 ANON.
Takes effect: starting block 37,000 (coinburn block).

2. PROPOSAL FEE

The proposal fee has been changed to 100 ANON.
Takes effect: starting block 37,000 (coinburn block).

3. GOVERNANCE MINIMUM QUORUM

The governance minimum quorum has been changed from 10% to 25%. Now, in order for a proposal to pass, at least 25% percent (net) of masternode must vote "yes".
Takes effect: starting block 37,000 (coinburn block).

4. DEVELOPMENT FEE

10% of the block reward paid to a development fee address.
Takes effect: activates by SPORK, ~ block 38,000 (~ 7 days after the coinburn).

5. BUDGET FEE

Each block reward will be reduced by 5% of the normal block reward. These funds can be distributed during a superblock period by "passing a proposal". Any undistributed funds between superblocks get burned.
Takes effect: starting block 39,420 (~ 16 days after the coinburn).

6. SUPERBLOCKS

Superblocks create funds based on the requested amount from proposals that passed (up to the monthly maximum) and send them to the addresses. If more funding was successfully requested than can be afforded by the budget net "yes" vote proposals have priority. Any proposals that passed but didn't get funded (due to lack of funds) must be resubmitted the next month.
Takes effect: first superblock (43,800) (~ 46 days after the coinburn).
Budget Cycle: every 4380 blocks, starting from block 43,800 (~ 30 day cycle).
Budget Maximum: block_reward * 4380 * 5%.

7. SPORKS

Introducing Sporks - a mechanism used to safely deploy new features to the network through network-level variables to avoid the risk of unintended network forking during upgrades.

8. RPC COMMAND (NEW)

  • "spork show" - to show all current spork settings
  • "spork active" - to show which sporks are active

9. RPC COMMAND (EXTENDED)

  • "getgovernanceinfo" now returns additional keys:
    {
    "governanceminquorum": 3,
    "masternodewatchdogmaxseconds": 28800,
    "proposalfee": 100.00000000,
    "superblockcycle": 4380,
    "lastsuperblock": 0,
    "nextsuperblock": 43800
    }

10. PROTOCOL VERSION UPDATE

! Protocol version < 180006 will be deactivated by a SPORK.
