This page has been created to keep track of all impending and completed soft forks to the BitcoinPlus Network. 

soft fork is a backward compatible method of upgrading a blockchain. In other words, a soft fork is a software upgrade that is backward compatible with previous versions of the software. 

Previous Versions of the software may not be able to make use of the new features but will still be able to initially support the network. 

The network may reject blocks from those older clients once a certain percentage of newly mined blocks have signalled support for the soft fork. The change brought in by the soft fork will only activate if fixed criteria is met.

Segregated Witness BIP9 Soft Fork

BIP9 relates to Segregated Witness and CHECKSEQUENCEVERIFY (CSV).  For BIP9 once at least 75% of the last 20,160 blocks in the XBC Network is using Version 2.7.0,  then the soft fork will activate. Once the network is at 95% of the last 20,160 blocks any block with a version less than 2.7.0 will be rejected.

CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY (CLTV) Soft Fork

BIP65 relates to CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY (CLTV).  For BIP65 once at least 75% of the last 1,000 blocks in the XBC Network is using Version 2.7.0,  then the soft fork will activate, allowing the network to make use of CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY. Once the network is at 95% of the last 1,000 blocks any block with a version less than 2.7.0 will be rejected. As of 13/11/2018 the network is currently at around 90%.
