@here We are now in the process of conducting the very first public (after exchange launch) IOTA Snapshot! Here is how it will go down:
What is going on now?
The coordinator is shut down while the team is preparing a new snapshot. This snapshot will be signed, and together with a few tools made available to the public so that everyone with a full node can independently validate the snapshot. We already have several community members lined up for this, the more the merrier! If you don’t run a full node, don’t worry, you have nothing to do
When is the coordinator back up?
In roughly 3 hours (00:00 GMT +2), the coordinator will go online again, together with a new release of the GUI Wallet and the new IRI version. For full nodes we will provide further assistance on how to go about doing this.
You can expect a blog post about the Snapshot to also go live within 1 - 2 hours (edited)
