test-4.0.6 exhausting fork time was
Friday fifth June 13:00 UTC which went by and not using a glitch. Because the consequence right this moment mainnet 4.Zero was launched.
As a lot of you recognize, BitShares mainnet launch 4.0 was overdue since November 2019. With big turbulence among the many BitShares Consensus (Holders and their voting actions), the reactions of sure holders and majority of builders and managers round, meant that we missed our scheduled launch.
How the media had been describing it in 2020, we had ceased improvement. This wasn’t true nonetheless. Consensus behind holders stopped supporting any new employees and improvement till sure compromises and requests had been resolved. As one in every of these compromises, profitable instance in 2020 is the Prelude Core 2020 employee.
So far as the event goes, we by no means stopped. Even with out holder authorised funding, BitShares nonetheless counts over 20 devoted and devoted neighborhood builders. These builders made their contributions and commits solely free, to be able to band-aid BitShares when wanted.
Finalizing BitShares 4.Zero launch was the first aim of Prelude Core 2020 employee. Moreover, a number of additional flavors had been added as requested, authorised by collaboration of the voting majority.

Being too low-cost, or ‘close to free for all’ has confirmed unsustainable.
