Haven Protocol v3.0.0 hardfork
One of the key reasons for this hardfork is to switch to our own tweaked mining algorithm in light of the many recent 51% attacks that have been happening around the crypto world.
Whats included in this hardfork?
CryptoNight Haven Algorithm
This is a tweak on the cryptonight heavy algorithm we are currently using that will once again make us incompatible with nicehash. This is important while we are a growing network to ensure cheap power can't be rented to dominate the network hash.
As voted by the community, a 5% governance fee will be added to the block reward. This fee will be used to pay for Listings, Lawyers and Developers to ramp up the project.
Difficulty Algorithm Adjustments
Updates to the diff algorithm help ensure better block timings and security against attacks.
Increased minimum ring size from 5 to 10 for increased privacy and anonymity
PoW algorithim changed from Cryptonight to Cryptonight Heavy which is ASIC resistant and not currently listed on nicehash
Updated to latest LWMA difficulty algorithim implementation to stop timewarp attacks and improve reliability of block timings
Support for subaddresses in GUI wallet
Various small performance improvements
