Countdown with friends...

What is the Qtum Hard Fork?

The new version of Qtum Core 0.19.1 will be implemented on the Qtum Blockchain as a Hardfork to bring about several upgrades to the chain.

When is the Hard Fork Happening?

The hard fork is scheduled on block 680,000 on the Qtum blockchain. It is estimated to occur on August 28th, 2020.

What will change after the hard fork?

One of the main improvements to be brought upon by the hard fork is Offline Staking, allowing users to Stake Qtum without needing to run a full Qtum node / being online.

The aim of Offline Staking is to help “increase participation in the staking process and democratize the network and make it more distributed and secure” - according to the Qtum Team.

For more information about Offline Staking, please refer to https://blog.qtum.org/qtum-improvement-proposal-25-the-road-to-offline-staking-part-2-a79cd62300aa

Some other changes include a change in block reward payment, Upgrading Qtum Core to 0.19.1, various bug fixes and improvements.

What should I do to prepare for the Hard Fork?

This is a mandatory hardfork that requires all participants with full nodes to upgrade their nodes and Qtum Qt wallets. For Qtum holders than do not use the official Qt Wallet, please check with your wallet providers and exchanges to ensure they support the hard fork.
