Details for Upcoming Second Ethereum Hard Fork (11.22.2016)
Submitted by Emily on Wednesday, November 16, 2016
Please read our official statement regarding ShapeShift and the Ethereum hard fork, which will be occuring at approx. 6:30 am EST, Tuesday, November 22, 2016.
At approximately 6:30 am EST, Tuesday, November 22, 2016, (block 2,675,000), the ETH network will undergo a hard fork in an attempt to resolve lingering network isseus. At the moment this seems to be an uncontentious change and things are expected to go smoothly.
What this means for ShapeShift users:
ETH and all ETH related Assets (Augur Reputation - REP, SingularDTV - SNGLS, and DigixDao - DGD) will be turned offline shortly prior to the hard fork and re-enabled once it is clear the fork has gone smoothly.
If you run an ethereum node locally make sure you update to the latest geth or parity and are synced with the new chain after the fork before trying to use ShapeShift again.
