Why is cryptopia wallet on maintenance again?

Haven't the slightest idea. CoinInfo states they're restarting the server though it's been about 10 hours now. I've got multiple messages/emails into them in an attempt to figure out what's going on.

Gotta restart the server!

Cryptopia is finished with their server restart/maintenance process. Bulwark deposits/withdrawals are opened again.
After much deliberation the Bulwark team has decided that going forward we will be moving to Proof-Of-Stake.

The decision is that we will be pushing PoS up to block 172800 (Approximately June 6, 2018).

Proof-of-Work will remain as is until the new PoS activation time passes.

This entire process will NOT affect masternodes whatsoever.

Please see the attached blog post for our thought process:

We thank you for your patience and understanding

All that detail is gone in to in the link EatBatteries provided. It's fairly long and goes over the character limit for most of our platforms.

It is not clear to me from the announcement (I read the link too)

How will PoS affect the supply per block? Will it be as predictable as with PoW or will rewards per block be partly random?
While it says the governance/budget will not be affected, I assume that refers to masternodes.

While it says the governance/budget will not be affected, I assume that refers to masternodes.

As far as the block reward schedule is concerned, that is not changing. The governance system (10% of block rewards being put into a super block to be awarded monthly based on masternode votes) will not be changing and will still not be activated until the end of year one as initially planned.

I'd suggest you do some reading on See-Saw from pivx.

Essentially, what happens is PoS and Masternode rewards will shift based on the percentage of supply locked in masternodes at any given time. It inherently benefits masternodes more than staking. The "sweet spot" where masternodes rewards = staking rewards (for a comparable amount of coins) is around 41% supply locked in masternodes. Any more than that, staking rewards are more profitable. Any less than that, masternodes are more profitable.

Update 1.2.4

https://github.com/bulwark-crypto/Bulwark/releases/tag/1.2.4

Quick Changelog:
- The DNS Seeders have been fixed, it is no longer necessary to add nodes to your bulwark.conf file

- Hard coded seeds have been replaced with more reliable seeds

- Onion nodes have been included in the list of seeds for a future update


For Wallets: Download new 1.2.4 binaries. Shut down Bulwark wallet. Launch with the new qt.

For Masternode Operators: You can update your nodes with the following command in the VPS:

bash <( curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bulwark-crypto/Bulwark-MN-Install/master/update_node.sh )

Note: Performing the update on your masternode's VPS will not interrupt your payments or require you to restart your masternode in the wallet.

This update is not mandatory but will strengthen the network and help us proceed with further testing.

Please keep in mind the Bulwark Team does not endorse or condone any masternode sharing or setup services due to the intrinsic risks they could potentially pose to our community.

https://bulwarkcrypto.com/bulwark-proof-of-stake/

We thank you for your patience and understanding


Q: Is PoS activating 6 months from now?
A: Proof of Stake is activating 6 months from the launch date. So around another 2 months on block 172800 (Approximately June 6th, 2018.)

Q: Is mining still possible?
A: Yes, mining is still possible up until block 172800.

Q: Will we need to update wallets/Masternodes?
A: Yes, we will provide a new wallet and update the Masternode script when the wallet is ready.

Q: But the vote said an algorithm change was going to happen.
A: This vote was not a guarantee that any particular choice will be implemented by The Bulwark Team. It was a means to gauge community interest in each option to be taken into consideration while we discussed internally.

Q: Are the block rewards changing?
A: No, Block rewards will stay the same, but the see-saw reward system will activate on block 172800.

Q: What % of rewards will I expect during Proof of Stake?
A: There is no way to accurately calculate your rewards until PoS activates. It depends on how much is locked up in staking, and how much is locked up with MN's.
Super! I fully support the decision of the team.

I can't help but wonder... why does the transition have to be scheduled 2 months in the future? If you've tested what you're about to implement, wouldn't just 1-2 weeks be enough?
Or are you aiming for a specific amount of supply before you change into POS? I'm a bit curious about that part of your decision.

There are other issues which include PIVX removing see-saw due to issues it was causing with zerocoin(which we plan on implementing shortly after PoS goes live) that we're looking into.

Instead of releasing multiple mandatory updates, we'd prefer to take a little bit more time, get everything sorted out, and release everything at once.

Once released, we'd like to have a minimum of 3-4 weeks to allow the majority of the network to update accordingly instead of rushing it in one week and hoping enough people are paying attention and updating.

It's always preferable to update to the latest version as soon as it is available. Not to mention, it takes about 30 seconds to actually update, so might as well be safe and do so.

Should you run into any issues at any point and need help troubleshooting, the first thing anybody will ask you is whether or not you're on the latest wallet version anyways.
