A recently released digital currency which we discussed in the past is LitecoinDark. Even though not too much has been released since we did our initial article, this doesn’t mean no work has been done behind the scenes. LTCD will be undergoing a hard fork in order to lower block rewards.
As a result of the hard fork, a new LitecoinDark client will be released later tonight, assuming nothing goes wrong that is. The main change will be a massive reduction in block rewards, lowering them from 400 LTCD to (as far as we know at this point) 200 LTCD.
No official hard fork “block number” has been announced at this point, but we will keep an eye out for any further information in this regard. More information is expected to become available after client version 1.2.2 has been released.
A lot of people were speculating the LitecoinDark hard fork would take place BEFORE the 1.2.2 client would be released, but we can now confirm this will not be the case. The current LTCD client does not even contain the hard fork code.
As of this writing, the LitecoinDark developer is testing all aspects of the upcoming client, which is functionally finished. Mining on a private main- and testnet is currently underway to see how the network will behave with the upcoming changes.
