In this article, we will look at the some of the goals of the TurtleCoin project, the concept of centralization, where the project stands, and what the project is doing to remain true to itself by maintaining its commitment to the community.
FORK IN 3 DAYS UPDATE YOUR MINERS! UPDATE YOUR DAEMONS! https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoin/
Core Update – For those of you who haven’t heard yet, at block 1,200,000 (or in 17d 4h 17m 0s) we will be upgrading the network to a new hashing algorithm, CN Turtle. If you’d like to know more about CN Turtle and the fork, check out the articles below, but in short, it’s about renewing our commitment to keep ASIC off the network.
If you’re a normal user, just update your core software or gui wallet and you should be fine, if you’re a miner, you may use TRTL Stak or XMRig, or SRB with more to likely follow. – rock
This Christmas we received the blessing of the community’s progress and our mutual friendship with other networks. TurtleCoin users are quickly becoming the most helpful crew in the industry, and that’s a hat we are happy to wear any time 😀
The core development team has observed the fact that the network hash rate has climbed substantially over the last few weeks. Luckily, the hashrate has remained rather decentralized and balanced over the large number of pools that the community operates. However, the significant increase in hashrate has made it more difficult for the project to meet one of its core goals. To remain mineable for everyone. After careful consideration, we believe it’s once again time to perform a soft fork to a new Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm.
Fork this, Fork that, Fork yer mom, Fork you too. Let’s get to the bottom of this whole forking deal and talk about what the fork is going on!
There are a few types of forks, and the goal here is to give you a basic understanding of all of them so nobody has to be afraid of what they mean. If you have questions, or want to talk more, you can catch us in Discord.
