Following rigorous and repeated tests, EPOS has successfully met the standard for going live and plans to upgrade at the #9806910 block height of the EVA mainnet. This upgrade will not negatively impact existing EVA nodes, which will be able to complete the upgrade process smoothly.
This upgrade will also introduce the brand-new EVA2.0 Tokenomics. According to this model, the node staking feature will be launched only after EPOS goes live, and the node staking rewards will be simultaneously opened. This means that users of the EVA community will receive corresponding staking rewards after the node staking feature goes live.
To ensure the stable operation of the EPOS mainnet, the EVA team plans to conduct a period of stability monitoring after the mainnet goes live. Once the mainnet runs stably, the EVA team will provide node staking services to the community, offering users more opportunities to participate in the EPOS mainnet and EVA2.0 Tokenomics.
To help users better understand and operate this upgrade process, the EVA team has released the EPOS node upgrade documentation on GitHub. It’s worth noting that once EPOS is successfully upgraded, the original EVA nodes will no longer receive corresponding mining rewards, so it is necessary to switch to EPOS as soon as possible.
