Heartwood Activation Countdown - July 16th

Hear ye, hear ye! The third network upgrade to the Zcash network is about 2 weeks away. NU3, codenamed Heartwood, will activate to mainment at block 903000, approximately July 16, 2020 10:01 UTC+. (Please note this time is an approximation assuming 75/sec per block.)

To celebrate the Heartwood Mainnet activation, we want to invite you to participate in the Community Countdown, live-streamed on Youtube. We’ll reflect on Heartwood, answer questions from the audience, play a quick game of Zcash Taboo* and count-down together to the activation of another network upgrade for Zcash.

Add this event to your calendar.

*What is Zcash Taboo? You’ll have to tune in to find out!


Yay! Excited for this upgrade.

Can anyone point to a testnet block with a shielded coinbase e.g. on https://explorer.testnet.z.cash/?

@garethtdavies Been working on tools around this but saw this post late, check out https://explorer.testnet.z.cash/tx/51a4cd59d445463292f3fe0bcaec252577f2c5b483ed753aecf4bf4455a9e725

Grin’s third network upgrade is expected on the very same day!

Good morning party people! Here is the Youtube link for the live stream.

We will probably start around 10:15 since activation block height is supposed to be 10:51 or a little afterwards.
