As the Whive community continues to thrive and expand, our commitment to the original vision and design of the Whive Protocol remains steadfast. It is with this dedication to our core principles that we announce the forthcoming release of Version 22.2.2, a significant update that underscores our unwavering commitment to the protocol’s original intent and long-term sustainability.

Ensuring Alignment: A Necessary Adjustment

In the spirit of maintaining the integrity and original design of the Whive Protocol, we are implementing a vital correction to the consensus.nSubsidyHalvingInterval. This adjustment, from 1,000,000 to 210,000, is not a departure from our path but a realignment, ensuring that the first Whive halving event unfolds precisely as envisioned at block 210,000.

The Essence of the Update

This update is a reflection of our dedication to precision and adherence to the foundational tokenomics laid out in the Whive Protocol Green Paper. It is a testament to our commitment to the protocol’s health and the equitable distribution of rewards within our ecosystem. By reinstating the halving interval to its original design, we reaffirm our dedication to a sustainable and prosperous blockchain network.

Version 22.2.2: A Commitment to Original Vision

The release of Version 22.2.2 symbolizes more than just a technical update; it is a reiteration of our values and a step towards reinforcing the economic model that underpins the Whive Protocol. This version is a beacon of our resolve to uphold the principles that define us and to foster a robust and balanced ecosystem for all members of the Whive community.

Key Highlights of the Update

  • Adherence to Original Tokenomics: This correction ensures that the Whive Protocol remains true to its original economic design, fostering stability and growth.
  • Community Empowerment: By aligning with the intended halving schedule, we ensure a fair and rewarding environment for our miners, bolstering community engagement and participation.
  • Protocol Integrity: This update reaffirms our commitment to the protocol’s long-term viability and the trust placed in us by the Whive community.

Your Role in This Pivotal Moment

This momentous update calls for the collective action of the Whive community. We invite each member, from miners to node operators, to join us in embracing Version 22.2.2, ensuring a seamless transition to this refined iteration of our protocol.

  • Immediate Action Required: The update is readily available on our GitHub repository as well as the official Releases. We urge our community to update their systems promptly.
  • Guidance and Support: For assistance with updating your nodes, please refer to our detailed guides for Linux, Mac OS, and Windows.

Please note, with the release of Version 22.2.2, support for earlier versions of Ubuntu prior to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish) will be deprecated. This decision aligns with our commitment to provide a secure and stable environment for Whive Protocol users, leveraging the latest features and security enhancements offered by Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and subsequent releases. For more information on upgrading your Ubuntu system, please visit the official Ubuntu upgrade guide here.

As we approach this significant milestone, let us reflect on the strength and unity of the Whive community. This update is not just a testament to our technical agility but a reaffirmation of our shared vision and the enduring values that bind us.

Together, we continue to build a decentralized future, rooted in the principles that inspired the Whive Protocol from its inception.
