Cryptopia is down due to a hack and have to sort out their issues for a likely extended delay period - In the meantime you can use the following exchanges to trade IC:
After months of taking suggestions and opinions from the community, we believe we will be moving toward the reduction or removal of PoW in the next 6-12 months time frame.
Other things that we are planning or exploring at this time are:
👉 Changing the ratio of PoS vs MN rewards from 50/50 to somewhere in the range of 30-45/55-70 % ratios.
👉 Typos and Minor Bug fixes
👉 Blockchain Pruning for Light-Wallets, which could allow for long-term sustainability with running nodes on small devices like raspberry pi - Note: currently the blockchain is between 500-750mb, still very small and easy to run on any raspberry pi or small device, but after many years it could become much larger, and pruning would allow for these nodes to continue easy operations.
👉 Adding auto-start masternode options, so that you don't have to click the start masternode button
👉 Adding auto-send features for masternode and staking rewards
👉 Implement the "Bitcoin Firewall" protocols that would improve bandwidth and reliability of network connections
These changes should ensure even more long-term stability and reliability for all users, keep block times even more stable, and reduce the possibilities of issues for users in the future.
Most of the features are still being researched for viability and implementability, but the PoW Reduction/Removal and POS/MN Ratio Changes are mostly certain, the others may be included in the same update or a separate future one.
