HF v3.0 Snapshot
As the proposal for v3.0 HF/Reset has passed and has received the first round of funding from block 561600 to block 561604, we're going to fork at block 583K appx. the end of this month. That's when a snapshot from this chain will be taken and all addresses will be airdropped 1:1 and the community multisig address will receive the second round of funding from the budget which will be mined at block 604800 if we continue on with this chain.
New Addresses & Private Keys
The new chain will use SHA256 for addresses and private keys so your addresses and private keys will change. However, the new wallet will recognize your old private keys and will be able to automatically convert them into the new private keys when you try to import them. You can use
dumpwallet in the old version to dump all your private keys into a text file and then use
importwallet in the new version to convert and import them into your new wallet. New private keys will start with P while new addresses will start with S just like the old ones!
Your coins on STEEM-Engine and Crex24 as well as Tipbots will automatically roll over to the new chain and you won't need to worry about them. But feel free to withdraw them to your own wallet before the snapshot if you wish to do so.
