The BTG network repelled a massive attack

Today, July 10th, 2020, a long chain of 1300+ blocks mined since July 1st tried and failed to take over the BTG blockchain.

Pools, Exchanges, Services, and Wallet providers who previously upgraded to BTG v0.17.2, which rejected the attacker’s chain, were not affected.

If you run a full node, you should upgrade immediately. Full details in this post on the website, which is duplicated on the Forum here.
