On Monday, December 17, the Komodo platform reported the successful completion of the scheduled code base update from Zcash dubbed Sapling. On Friday last week, U.Today reported about the intention of the startup to perform the update on Saturday. In order to answer any possible questions from users, the platform launched an AMA session, announcing it on Reddit.
"Saturday 15 December 2018 at 1am UTC, the Komodo developers were successful in activating the sapling upgrade from #zCash and unifying blockchain technologies from @VerusCoin in the biggest upgrade to the #blockchain ecosystem to date." - @iMyloMylo #fintech #crypto— Komodo (@KomodoPlatform) December 17, 2018
Earlier today, Komodo announced on Twitter that the code base had been successfully upgraded. The AMA (ask me anything) session is still active, though, for those users who still have questions or fears. The company reps assure, however, that no customers will lose their funds.
JL777 confirms no-one will lose their funds. We're reaching out to @naomibrockwell for an interview. If you have any questions in the meantime we have an AMA that's still open here: https://t.co/5ORME8XoJ9 #blockchain #fintech #sapling #update #crypto $KMD #komodo #AMA https://t.co/aXblpgcKTl— Komodo (@KomodoPlatform) December 17, 2018
The upgrade was introduced at around 1 am UTC on Saturday, and it was obligatory for all those that wish to keep using the blockchain. The blockchain called it the biggest upgrade Komodo has ever implemented.
The developers promise various innovations and new features introduced with the upgrade. Later on, at Christmas or in early January, Ledger wallet is scheduled to add support for the Sapling upgrade as well.
By now, the Binance and Bittrex exchanges have already resumed deposits and withdrawals of KMD.
