Here below we list the information that you need to know:
Exchanges & Wallets
These services have confirmed their willingness to support Lisk migration and will handle it on your behalf, no action is required on the users’ side. Deposits & transfers might be paused for some days, as providers would wait for a stable network before enabling again operations.
Bittrex and Upbit Korea have not replied yet to LiskHQ request of contact.
CoinPayments confirmed that they will not support v3 and delist the LSK token.
Please note that Hirish is working on Ledger and Trezor compatibility. After Mainnet migration, LiskHQ will include hardware support in Lisk Desktop v2.2.0. Liskish wallet won’t be updated and supported after Lisk Mainnet upgrade.
Trezor announced LSK delisting, pointing out lack of communications: LiskHQ is now in contact with Trezor team to solve the issues and have the HW compatible again.
Votes & Delegates
What happens to my current votes if I do nothing?
Votes will be reset and you have to vote again.
During the first week (Aug 21st – Aug 28th), validators that were actively forging during the old consensus model will still secure the network.
Once this 7-day buffer period has expired, only top101 delegates voted with the new consensus will have the right to forge. The new mechanism will also allow two rotating stand-by delegated to forge some blocks.
A comprehensive guide to Lisk Delegates will be published once validators will start campaigning.
LiskMagazine will join the new consensus too, to continue reporting news&activities in international, Polish, and Japanese communities!
