Dear Wanchain Community,

After several months of research and development by the Wanchain team and nearly a month of testing by our community with the Polkadot testnet bounty program, we are happy to say that the integration of Polkadot on Wanchain mainnet is just around the corner. In order to ensure a smooth transition of the Polkadot integration, Storeman node operators are required to upgrade their nodes on October 8.

The upgrade will be available beginning Friday, Oct. 8th at 06:00 UTC.

What regular users need to do

As with all Wanchain network upgrades, the only thing you need to do is plan ahead! While Wanchain’s Storeman node operators update their nodes, crosschain transactions may be momentarily unavailable. Any interruption should last less than an hour. Please keep an eye on Wanchain’s official Twitter account for up-to-date announcements.

What Storeman node operators need to do

Storeman node operators must upgrade to Agent version 3.4.0 as soon as possible. The Wanchain team has once again prepared a simple update script to make the process as smooth as possible.

The update script is:

cd ~/osm/
./startStoremanV5.sh

As a reminder, Storeman node operators that fail to upgrade their nodes in a timely manner will not be able to perform and verify crosschain transactions.
