Hard Spoon Completed

The hard spoon announced in the previous blog post has now occurred. At block #3276706 a snapshot was recorded of all ACU balances and unclaimed MIX => ACU.

A new genesis block was created and the new blockchain started to facilitate the upcoming launch of the Acuity DEX. This was the third (and hopefully final) hard spoon that has been performed on the Acuity blockchain.

If you are running a full node, you will need to update to the latest release of the Acuity software and sync from scratch.

The Polkadot web interface for Acuity has been updated to the latest version and is now connected to the new blockchain. You might need to give it a hard refresh.

All balances have been brought over to the new blockchain. Our exchange partner STEX has already updated their platform.

If you were staking, either as a nominator or a validator, you will need to set this up again.

We can now move forward with launching the Acuity Atomic Swap Exchange that will enable fully decentralized trade between many different blockchains.
