A few more things Almost there! - There are 2 main phases: 1. Protocol enforcement activated: Thus >=184.108.40.206 wallet-only network is formed. Currently set at 5/8 00:00 GMT but could be altered/delayed if deemed necessary. 2. zPIV maintenance mode disengaged: zPIV v2 gets enabled thus zPoS also begins. There is no set time for this. If phase 1 goes well, which means enough wallet nodes and Masternodes have upgraded, then this should happen soon after.
Frequently Asked Questions Do I have to upgrade? Yes. Any wallets older than 3.1.0.x will NOT be compatible with the 3.1.0.x wallet's network starting May 8th. This includes the 3.1.0 wallets recently released. Do I need to upgrade my masternodes also? Yes. Will zPIV minting or spending be possible once I upgrade? Not immediately. zPIV will be activated sometime after block 1153160 (May 8th). It will be announced on social media including the @_PIVX twitter (and various other channels) once it's active. What happens if I don't/can't upgrade before May 8th? That's fine. But do not make any coin transfers after that date with your older wallet. Also, you may need to resync from scratch or from an older blockchain snapshot to get back on the right chain when you do eventually upgrade to 220.127.116.11 (or higher). What's the zPIV staking I heard about? Once released, if you stake with your zPIV instead of PIV, your staking reward will be 3 PIV instead of 2 PIV. PIVX now incentivizes toward zPIV.
