The Hardfork Has Happened & MRC is live!
# Information The gridcoin network has updated its protocol. The main feature is that you can now make manual rewards claims (MRC). This means you no longer need to stake to get rewards although there is a fee when doing this to encourage you to still stake. # What if I didn't update to 184.108.40.206? If you didn't update to the latest mandatroy version 220.127.116.11, you will fork and go on the wrong chain. You should update your wallet right away. If you upgraded too late, your wallet may not be able to get on the correct chain automatically after updating. To fix this you can either sync from zero (menu button -> reset blockchain data) or use a snapshot (menu button -> snapshot download) # Where can I learn more about Hard forks in general?
