As some of you might already know, we successfully deployed the multi-view solution for pbft-v1 on all the fixed nodes on mainnet last week. We have been monitoring the network over the weekend and it’s stable.
What this means for validators
This multi-view solution will make your Node sync at least 10 times faster. Previously it took up to 3 days for a newly set up Node to finish syncing. With the new multiview, time taken will be reduced to only 6-12 hours. Your Node will soon be able to start producing blocks and get earning much more quickly.
This multiview solution also lays the ground for Dynamic Committee and Dynamic Sharding which is expected to go live in 2021.
What you need to do
We are planning to push the new code to all nodes in the network. All validators will need to upgrade their node and update to the new database.
This is scheduled to happen on Sep 4th, 3:00 AM ET. Only vNode validators need to perform the upgrade. Here are detailed instructions: Important: Update your vNode for faster syncing
