On December 15, Komodo successfully hard-forked more than 40 blockchains at the same time with no issues, providing enormous technological improvements to the entire ecosystem.
On Saturday, December 15, 2018, at roughly 01:00 UTC, the Komodo Development Team successfully activated the largest-ever update to the Komodo code base, hard-forking every blockchain in the ecosystem— over 40 completely independent blockchains— all at the same time, with no major issues or complications.
This is the largest single upgrade ever performed in the history of the blockchain industry. Congratulations to the Komodo and thanks to the hard work of all the developers and testers who made this enormous update possible!
A Groundbreaking Upgrade For Komodo
The recent Komodo update included the Sapling upgrade, originally developed by zCash, which greatly reduces the amount of processing power needed to complete a private z-transaction; a number of technologies upstreamed from Verus Coin that provide new options in the customization of independent blockchains launched with Komodo’s technology; and an increase in block size from 2 MB to 4 MB.
To complete this enormous upgrade, more than 500 source code files were updated. With collaboration between all projects in the Komodo ecosystem, the expertise of the Komodo Dev Team, and exhaustive testing from the Support/QA Team, the upgrade was activated smoothly.
This is the first time a simultaneous hard fork of multiple independent public blockchains has been achieved simultaneously. It is a huge milestone for Komodo and the broader ecosystem.
