Haven Launching ‘Artemis’ v1.2.0 on December 8th

After successful testing of the new code, we are pleased to announce Haven’s mainnet will upgrade to Monero v0.16 by conducting a hard fork at block height 741,957 or approximately 14:30 GMT on December 8, 2020.

This date has been selected to give pool operators and exchanges two weeks to prepare for a smooth transition. This release will be known as Haven ‘Artemis’ v1.2.0. You can find the source code on GitHub here.

This exciting step for the Haven team and community moves the protocol forward on multiple fronts:

Artemis enables the new Haven Web Vault

An updated version of the Haven Web Vault will go live with the fork, giving easy access and control to a far broader range of Haven users. It will also enable xUSD functionality, so users can convert and transfer from any device, including mobile and tablet, from anywhere in the world.

Artemis enables a Desktop Vault upgrade

The Web Vault technology will trickle down into the desktop Vaults. The improved architecture will mean that users will no longer experience the connection issues currently associated with logging in and first use. These new Vaults will be available to users before the fork date. You can keep your coins in the existing vaults until that time. No user action is required.

Artemis will enable future xAssets

With the introduction of xUSD, Haven has already delivered the world’s first private stablecoin. In order to ensure that xAsset development is compatible with future versions of Monero, a v0.16 fork was required before xAssets work starts in earnest. This release lays the foundations for future xAssets, and we’re on track to add xGOLD, xSILVER, xEUR and xCNY early in 2021.

Many thanks for those in the community who took the time to support the team with testing. Thank you all!
