@everyone - we expect Masternodes.online to have CATO listed on the Tiers page in the next few days.
@everyone - I am aslo working the masternodes.online to get our 3 Tiers listed there soon. - thanks!
@everyone - just like the CatoCoin collateral and block chain fork was months in the planning, so my relocation in the United States from Maryland to Sunny Florida. My wife and I hot the road early wednesday morning and drove for two day then started moving into our new house yesterday morning. Apologies from me for not being online for past two day. it's tough when a big moving truch for 12 hours a day. That saidm we're almost back to normal. coinexchange.io is up pn the new block chain and respite that CB may have said to some of you, I've done my part and send a test transaction to the 3 days ago and have yet to hear a reply. see below:
@everyone - Coinexchange.io has re-activated CATO withdrawls and deposits and if on the new block chain. I expect crypto-bridge to be back on line later today or first thing tomorrow : https://www.coinexchange.io/market/CATO/BTC
@everyone - Special Announcement - Tier 2 is 60k Coins, not 50k - It was a last minute change that we made and forgot to update the charts - we ill do that tomorrow, but it's 25k, 60k and 100k
I see the diehards are holding out till the bitter end - 50 6,200 coin masternodes still running
In prep for the fork tomorrow all linux systems (the vps system that host your masternodes) MUST be updated to work properly for the fork:
If you have not updated yet, it's simple - just do this:
bash -ic "$(wget -4qO- -o- raw.githubusercontent.com/mikeytown2/masternode/master/catocoind-update.sh)" ; source ~/.bashrc'
If you have already updated your vps you need to run these commands for each masternode you have installed on the vps:
cato_mn1 update_daemon force cato_mn1 dl_blocks_n_chains https://catocoin.net/bootstrap-files.zip cato_mn1 start``` .... and if you have more masternodes installed, substitute mn1 for mn2 etc... *this is imperative - do it now*
@everyone - for anyone who is running a masternode or running their wallet on Linux there's a last minute update that must be installed. There's a new catocoind and catocoin-cli that has been posted on Github - download it here and install before block 495,217 - this is imperative! This update is only for Linux boxes - Windows is not affected
@everyone - Cato deposits and withdrawals are now disabled on crypto-bridge.org in advance of the soft fork on Saturday
@everyone - Do not waste your time creating any NEW Masternodes with the new collateral until we reach block 495,217 because THEY WILL NOT WORK after the fork. YOU MUST wait until block 495,217 to create masternodes with the new collateral. If you look carefully at the chart below you will see there is a dramatically reduced reward for the first 15 masternodes after the fork. This was done to prevent anyone from getting windfall profits by having one of the first few masternodes after the fork. We have always strived for fairness and this was our way of insuring a fair start.
@everyone - Withdrawals & Deposits are disabled on Coinexchange.io until after the fork has completed this coming weekend - Crypto-bridge will be following suit soon.
@everyone - Would my Block Explorer guy get in touch w/me please? 😃 Thanks!
@everyone - Your wallet should be version: v188.8.131.52-acb5eb2-dirty - if not you need to download the latest version from https://github.com/CatoCoin/releases, then run %appdata%, delete these directories and re-synch your wallet.
@everyone - Please make sure your block number matches the explorer block number (it should be within a few blocks): The explorer is here: http://explorer.catocoin.info/ and you check the block number in your wallet here:
@everyone A Note about the new wallet
You'll see the number of nodes listed for Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 and only Tier 1 has a valid number of coins and # of MN's
Tier 2 and Tier 3 collateral will populate after the fork and Tier 1 is showing about 66 Masternodes. - do not be concerned - this is accurate since about 66 nodes have been created with 6,200 coins, evern though the number of coins is much higher.
Here are my recommendation for updating.
@everyone - New CatoCoin wallets and source code has been uploaded. Wallets are here: https://github.com/CatoCoin/releases
We have made a minor change so that the first 15 masternodes that are up and running do not receive windfall profits. See chart below:
@everyone - due to minor delays we are rescheduling the fork block number to: 495,217 which will take place on June 8, 2019 - the new wallets will be posted on June 1, 2019
@everyone - Here is our final ROI chart that will take effect when the Block chain reaches 485,313. We have reduced the collateral requirement for Tier 2 from 60,000 Cato to 50,000 Cato, Tier 1 and Tier 3 Initial requirements remain the same as announced earlier. We expect Block 495,313 to be reached on 6/1/19
