EOS block manufacturers have decided to activate version 1.8 of the EOSIO protocol on Monday, September 23. This will be the first hard fork and the biggest update in the project history.
Coming out of today's 1.8 status call, EOS Upgrade Status is still green - on track for successful upgrade ✅🚀— EOS Nation (@EOS_Nation) September 10, 2019
27/30 top BPs are confirmed upgraded and ready and there have been no red flags raised. We continue to monitor progress and check in week. #EOS https://t.co/waHj5Cj7fH
At the time of writing, 29 out of 30 block manufacturers have confirmed their readiness. At the same time, the bitfinexeos1 and whaleex.com nodes have not yet been tested, and hashfineosio refrained from making public statements.
Recall that in the first 4 months of this year, 75% of transactions in decentralized applications on EOS in the amount of 6 million were carried out by bots.
