Important information

 for pool operators and exchanges

After fork block v13 Date and time (GMT): Thursday, 22 August 2019 22:08:00 block 248200 => You should change minimum ring size to 11 (mixin 10).

Just after release tag we will start rebuild all nodes, wallet software and services. Binaries will be available for public in the next 48 hours.

Recently ARQ has been listed on exchange which is popular in China. Actually there is one more exchange in the pipeline.

Concerning the premine burn there is a short video of the event:

We also modified the source code accordingly: see on -> github 

Thanks to moneromoo advices the process went smoothly.

The code generating the burn wallet address is available at github. Basically we generated the public view and spend keys without deriving them from any private keys, which makes impossible any recovery of the wallet. You can reproduce the result.
You can check the transaction on the block explorer under the tab "Prove sending": here

5.1 mln ARQ have been burnt.

The dev team decided to keep 350 K for Michal vel Malbit and 150 K for ArqTras. 74K have been set aside for the dev fund and will be transferred soon to a multisig wallet.

Recently we welcomed new members (140) from China on WeChat. Here we would like to thanks Joey Qiao#1471 from our discord for his precious help building the Chinese community.


Everybody is a foreigner somewhere and the ARQ Network is the cement between nationalities and people.


Let's grow together!
