The anonymous team of crypto enthusiasts announced that the original Monero chain will be kept and running after the Monero hard fork scheduled for the 6th of April 2018 at block #1546000.
Every user holding Monero on their XMR wallet that supports Monero original will receive the equal number of XMO coins.
While the new cryptocurrencies created in the result of the hard fork will be using the brand new chain, Monero Original will continue staying on the original chain. This ensures the uninterrupted transaction processing without any delays within the original chain.
“Monero has always been about freedom of choice, about diversity and about the strong community behind it. We are providing the Monero fans a possibility to support the iconic coin and stay on the original chain. Monero Original team stands for diversity, which is a logical marker of evolution. We are excited to see our favourite coin mature, and we are even more excited to help keeping this diversity,” says the lead developer of Monero Original team.
