FAQ

1. Is MoneroClassic (XMC) a hard fork from Monero?

No. Monero hard forked from itself when updating from v.0.11.1.0 to version v.0.12.0.0. We are working with Monero Network version v.0.11.1.0.

2. Why are you against the hard fork?

We believe the emergence of specialized mining machines for a cryptocurrency is a normal market economy phenomenon and it could greatly improve network security. With specialized mining machines, the events like “Monero was attacked by more than 500,000 botnets” could be avoided. On the opposite, frequent algorithm change creates more centralization.

If you have Monero in exchanges (CoinEx, Xstar, gate.io) before the hard fork, you should already have the equivalent amount of XMC in wallet.

If you have Monero in your local wallet before the hard fork, You just need send XMR to a new wallet address form Monero version 0.12, and restore XMC wallet from your old XMR address’s seed. Then you will keep your XMR safe. Wait for XMC wallet sync, you will get your XMC.
