Dash experienced a disruption in its transaction processing and block production early on Monday morning, according to Dash Core Group CTO Samuel Westrich.
Dash Blockchain Halted After Failed Hard Fork
Binance announced that its Dash mining pool would suspend the distribution of mining rewards until the blockchain resumes block production. Discussions on the DashPay Reddit page suggest that the v19 update encountered difficulties, resulting in a chain split with some nodes progressing past the fork block while others remain stuck. A user mentioned that approximately 10-20% of the network is moving forward, but the correct chain has not been confirmed.
The upcoming hard-forking update for Dash network clients, announced on April 14, introduces significant modifications to the functioning of nodes and wallets. Following the v19 activation, a new version of Dash masternodes will be introduced with higher collateral requirements. The update includes improvements to Dash's anonymity features, node operations, and wallet functionality.
