Miner Release: Updated Golden Build for Light Hotspot Activation

· 2 min read

The core developers have tagged a new 2022.04.27.0 miner release. This release is mandatory for all Hotspot Makers.

We request that Hotspot Manufacturers upgrade their fleets by 00:00 UTC on 2022-05-11.

This update contains Light Hotspot software, and when activated via chain variable will change how Hotspots receive challenges, remove block sync from Hotspots, and stabilize Hotspot performance.

This will allow the approved HIP 55 chain variable to be activated and prepare for the activation of Light Hotspots.
