The first XMR fork MoneroV (XMV) will take place on the 30th of April, 2018 block #1564965. Due to security reasons, it is essential that you use the official MoneroV wallet to claim MoneroV coins. All the additional information like the wallet’s source code will be published and open sourced by the MoneroV team.
There are some precautions you should follow to protect yourself from losing your earnings during the fork:
– Use the official wallet to extract XMV
– Do not transfer your XMR at the time of the fork
– Download the MoneroV wallet ONLY from GitHub or the official site and ONLY after the official announcement.
Monero Original (XMO)
Monero Original (XMO), which is scheduled for the 6th of April 2018 at block #1546000, will continue staying on the original chain. Beware that there’s a possibility of simultaneous withdrawal of XMO and XMR while making first withdrawals/payments with Monero. To prevent this from happening, you just need to transfer XMO to another wallet indicating ring 5. The additional information you may find here.
If you’re holding Monero on any external wallet that supports XMV/XMO, you’ll get your XMV/XMO coins automatically right after the fork.
