ARDR Snapshots

Snapshotting will start at block 870400 (expected July 14) and end at block 1000000 (Oct 12). Relevant reading: Ardor distribution

To get your ARDR tokens, it is recommended that you keep your NXT balance in your own account.

For balances on exchange accounts, it will be up to each exchange to handle the re-distribution of the ARDR tokens that will get automatically sent to the exchange account at snapshot end.

The 3 major exchanges for NXT; Poloniex, BTC38, and Bittrex will all run internal snapshots of their customers' NXT balances synchronized with the main blockchain. The Ardor tokens will then be distributed to their rightful owners at a ratio of 1 Ardor token for 1 NXT. The exchanges are prepared for new customers outside the Fintech and investment world looking to purchase Nxt tokens for future Ardor tokens with the introduction of fiat currency exchange. Retail customers will now be able to access the Ardor platform and purchase tokens using fiat currency.

 NRS 1.9.0e release notes

This is an experimental release.
It is a required update for all testnet nodes, optional for main net.

This release enables taking multiple snapshots of accounts NXT balances, every 60 blocks, for a period of 90 days, and distributing an ARDR token based on the average of those balances, at the end of the snapshot, to be used for the Ardor consensus chain token distribution in Nxt 2.0.

On testnet, the snapshot will start at block 649400 and end at block 779000 (June 24).

On mainnet, the snapshot will start at block 870400 (expected July 14) and end at block 1000000 (Oct 12).

Since on testnet the starting block is in the past, on upgrade to this release a blockchain rescan will be performed automatically in order to calculate past account balances. Those who delay upgrading their mainnet nodes until after block 870400 will also experience such a rescan. However, the hard fork block is set at the end of the snapshot, so the final deadline for upgrading to 1.9 is at blocks 779000 and 1000000 respectively.

To get your ARDR tokens, it is essential that you keep your NXT balance in your own account. There is no need to run a node or forge. It is the confirmed NXT balance that is used for the snapshot, not the unconfirmed (available) balance, so having some NXT locked in open AE bid orders, shufflings, etc, will not affect your ARDR distribution.

For balances on exchange accounts, it will be up to each exchange to handle the re-distribution of the ARDR tokens that will get automatically sent to the exchange account at snapshot end.

A new getFxtQuantity API has been added, which allows retrieving the already accumulated ARDR quantity for each account during the snapshot, and an estimate for the quantity yet to be obtained. While snapshots are done every 60 blocks, the numbers that this API returns are updated once every 720 blocks only.

Snapshot balances used for the ARDR distribution for a specific account can be recorded in the log by setting the nxt.logFxtBalance property to that account number, and performing a rescan if the snapshot has already started.

Added some additional transaction bytes validation, and phasing parameters validation, to take effect after the hardfork.

Added getAssetDividends API, to retrieve the dividend payment history for an asset. It can be viewed in the client by clicking on the new "View Asset Dividends" link on the asset exchange page. Dividend payments made before a node is updated to 1.9.0e will not show in this history, unless a blockchain rescan is forced manually.

After the hardfork block, asset dividend payment transactions will be limited to not more than one per asset every 60 blocks.

Added a new Messages table in the client UI. Allowed uploading a file as a message attachment, plain or encrypted, and downloading such messages as files.

All create transaction APIs that support prunable message attachments now also optionally accept multipart file uploads as messageFile or messageToEncryptFile parameters, or when using client-side encrypted data the data part can also be uploaded using encryptedMessageFile parameter. As the test API page does not support multiple file upload parameters, upload buttons for those are not currently available there.

Accept sharedKey parameter in downloadPrunableMessage and getPrunableMessage APIs.

Added client UI support for decrypting messages using a shared key, to allow disclosing the shared key for a specific encrypted message to a third party in order to decrypt it without having to reveal the account passphrase.

Forging optimization to reduce block skipping when switching forks.

Minor other bugfixes and UI improvements.

Updated H2 library to version 1.4.192, tika to 1.13, and slf4j to 1.7.21. If
installing manually, make sure to delete the old lib folder first.

The NRS (Nxt Reference Software) Client is the Nxt core developers’ official wallet release.

NRS is a locally hosted client server application. By default it downloads the Nxt blockchain, but from version 1.10.0e you can run it as a light client as well as a full node. To forge and earn forging fees from processing transactions on the network you must run the Nxt Client in full mode, which is possible even on small devices like laptops, or on a Raspberry Pi. There are also bounties for running public nodes.

The Nxt Client is easy to install. Use the 1-click installers for Linux, Mac and Windows or read this INSTALLATION GUIDE to launch the NRS .zip from terminal.
