Announcement on Implementation of Bitshares CNVOTE Patch


BTS中国公会关于执行补丁的公告

https://dpos.club/t/topic/945



The entire bitshares community has been shocked since the BTS core developer (Abit who was hired by blockchain via DPOS) tampered with the code privately on July 31, 2020. As a response, CNVOTE, which represents the interests of around 666 investors, developed a patch as a response. CNVOTE tried all the efforts to get the involved parties back to the negotiating table in order to roll BTS4.0 functions back to point where whole community voted and agreed upon. For the functions that developer added without bts holder's voting, we will put it on hold and wait for further voting result. CNVOTE is teaming up with bitshares  community members from all over the world to protect the legitimate rights and interests of bitshares investors and maintain the sanctity of DPOS consensus and DEFI credit.

CNVOTE conducted multiple rounds of communication with the parties involved, clarified the main demand of BitShares community, and prompted the bitshares committee to initiate a proposal to re-vote against the tampering codes. Unfortunately, the developer that BTS hired not only rejected the reasonable demands from community, but more astoundingly, the developer ,who was hired by blockchain via DPOS, refused to hand over the GitHub core code administrator rights back to bts committee and stated clearly that he will refuse to accept the results of the new proposal voting.

Since the birth of Bitshares in 2014, BTS has grown to where it is today because the community has always followed the DPOS consensus. However, in this incident, the developer (Abit) challenged the community consensus, controlled the official code repository, and tampered with the code without a vote by the community. His behavior has seriously trampled the community consensus, violated professional ethics, violated the spirit of the contract, and was suspected of serious malfeasance. This brings huge risks to investors, and CNVOTE retains the power to pursue further legal actions.

The patch plan proposed by CNVOTE has received positive responses from BTS community, and has also been widely supported by all parties, as follows:

1) Some big ticket bunkers had reached an agreement with the CNVOTE, condemned the behavior and voted unanimously with the CNVOTE;

2) Among the existing 19 active witnesses, 12 witnesses have announced their support publicly for installing the patch issued by CNVOTE;

3) AEX and XBTS exchanges stated that they will support the distribution of candies in the event of a hard fork. Major exchanges including Binance, Huobi, and ZB have also expressed their close attention to the distribution of candies or even list forked coin on their platform for trading;

4) CNVOTE has communicated and negotiated with all gateways, wallets, and nodes within BTS ecosystem, exchanged opinions, and basically reached a consensus on various statements.

/*

In order to protect the rights and interests of BTS holders, maintain the reputation of the community and the sanctity of DPOS consensus, on August 17, 2020, more than 666 members of CNVOTE passed the following resolutions after voting at the general meeting:

The BTS4.0 system upgrade patch will be activated at 21:55 on September 10, 2020, Beijing time CST.

*/

Later, we will open the test network as soon as possible, please be sure that all witnesses to run and test the patch on the test network as soon as possible. We will release test network information in a timely manner, please pay attention to our later notice

If during this period (from now to September 10) , a new consensus emerges from the community through a voting on the chain , we will promptly amend the patch when time comes or we will release amend patch according to the community consensus right after upgrade on September 10 . BitCrab has issued a BAIP voting. We call on all bts holders to vote in timely manner in order to form a community consensus as soon as possible.

Once again, CNVOTE has never been in pursuit of a fork and tried our best to resolve the issue through peaceful negotiations, Unfortunately, the developer hired by blockchain not only rejected the reasonable demands from community, more astoundingly, the developer refused to hand over the GitHub official code repository  administrator rights back to committee and stated clearly that he will refuse to accept the results of the new proposal voting. In order to maintain the foundation of trust in the blockchain , CNVOTE have no choice but fighting back.

CNVOTE calls on exchanges and wallets providers to Uphold the principle of fairness and openness, and resolutely resist the chain of illegally altered code. Due to the upgrade patch  has a high probability to cause a hard fork, we suggest exchanges and wallets providers in advance to prepare for snapshot and airdrop benefits for platform BTS holders.

All BTS ecological facilities such as witnesses, API nodes, blockchain browsers, wallet, etc. supported by CNVOTE should support the patched chain! We need to work together to maintain the credit and justice of the BTS blockchain and dignity of DPOS.

In addition, the appendix is the complete story of this incident for reviewing

BitShares China Association: CNVOTE

August 17, 2020

Appendix

BTS4.0 upgrade tampering code incident


1. On the evening of July 31, 2020, the BTS4.0 version was successfully upgraded, and some users found that the voting interface was abnormal.

2. On the night of July 31, the representative of the BTS committee asked the core developer(abit) about the reason for causing the UI voting abnormal behaviours.  Core developer "abit" said that the voting system has undergone four major changes, namely: voting weight decay, one vote for one vote for committee elections, locked voting, and return of non-locked accounts to zero and shuting down Collateral BTS voting rights. Later in night, abit announced the details of these changes in the forum.

3. These changes have not been voted and publicized, and even no one of the BTS  committee board members knows. The incident quickly fermented and all parties condemned “abit”.

4. On August 1,  CNVOTE voted to remove all the votes for abit (witness and committee board member)

5. On August 2, the technical staff of the CNVOTE started to develop 4.0 upgrade patch.

6. Some BTS investors and eco-participants said that although Abit violate BTS DOPS to make the changes , the content of the changes are somewhat reasonable. There was a heated debate within the community.

7. On August 10, the CNVOTE patch was developed and tested. After core group voted, CNVOTE issued a statement calling on witnesses to install the patch in order to maintain the DPOS consensus mechanism.

8. From August 10th to 11th, 5 witnesses declared that they did not support CNVOTE patch, and 3 witnesses declared that they supported CNVOTE patch.

9. On the evening of August 11, the controversy became more intense due to the continued fermentation of the incident. For the sake of prudence, more than 666 CNVOTE members conducted full discussion and voting. The conclusion was to push the witnesses to install patch in order to continue to maintain the credit and justice of the BTS blockchain and dignity of DPOS.

10. On August 12, the CNVOTE formed a 9-person response team to study the situation and make suggestions to the CNVOTE community .

11. On August 13, CNVOTE decided to withdraw votes from five witnesses who announced that they did not support patch  after a cnvote core group vote. Including BTS community veteran BITCRAB, community veteran mobile wallet software developer “magic-wallet”.

12. From August 13th to 14th, 9 witnesses (including inactive witnesses) spoke out to support CNVOTE patch.

13. On August 16, BDEX, the largest individual voting warehouse ,team up with CNVOTE to vote 6 witnesses who declared that they supported patch installation, and withdrew our votes from three witnesses who neither declared support for the installation nor declared not to support the installation of the patch. So far, 12 of the 19 active witnesses have clearly stated that they support patch installation.

14. On the afternoon of August 16, the representative of the CNVOTE communicated with "abit","abit" refused to give up the super administrator authority of the bitshares github code base and also disagree to create a work proposal to vote in order to get the voting system changes official. In the afternoon (CST), ALT, the biggest stake holder in BTS, said although he opposed abit's behavior, he did not want to see the community fork.

15. On August 17, CNVOTE voted by all members. Due to the failure of the negotiation, the announcement decided to activate the 4.0 upgrade patch at 21:55 pm on September 10th.

公会关于4.0版本升级的声明——致所有见证人

众所周知,在BTS4.0版本升级中,个别开发人员在社区不知情的情况下,私自篡改投票系统,造成极其恶劣的影响。我们认为,这种行为践踏了BTS区块链的信任基础、撕裂了社区团结、动摇了投资者的持币信心。如果不立即纠正,BTS在区块链世界中将再无信用可言。

为此,公会开发了4.0版本补丁程序,该补丁程序目的是将投票系统恢复成4.0版本之前的状态,以消除不良影响。该补丁仅修复了未经社区投票私自增加的变更,不影响4.0版本其他功能的正常使用。

我们呼吁所有见证人安装该补丁。见证人安装该补丁文件后,该补丁文件将在北京时间2020年8月20日21:55分自动生效。

请所有见证人(包括非活跃见证人)在北京时间2020年8月15日24:00分之前在本帖下回复补丁安装情况。从北京时间2020年8月16日开始,我们将对没有回复安装补丁文件的见证人撤票,并投票给已经安装补丁文件的见证人。若支持安装补丁文件的见证人数量不足,公会将启用公会备用见证人,将见证人数量补足。

其他所有个人节点、交易所节点、重钱包也应当在20日之后安装此补丁,以免影响使用。

公会将不断致力于维护BTS区块链系统的信用、公平和正义,我们支持一切合法的、有益的系统升级。

如见证人安装补丁时有任何问题请联系微信:xiaoyuan 409

Cn-vote’s statement on version 4.0 Upgrade – to all witnesses

As we all know, in the bts4.0 version upgrade, individual developers tamper with the voting system without the knowledge of the community, causing extremely bad impact. We believe that this behavior has trampled on the trust foundation of BTS blockchain, torn community unity and shaken investors’ confidence in currency holding. If not corrected immediately, BTS will no longer have credibility in the blockchain world.

To this end, CN vote developed a 4.0 patch, which aims to restore the voting system to the state before version 4.0 to eliminate adverse effects.This patch only fixes the changes that are added without community voting, and does not affect the normal use of other functions of version 4.0.

We call on all witnesses to install the patch. After the witness installs the patch, the patch will automatically take effect at 21:55, August 20, 2020(Beijing time).

All witnesses (including inactive witnesses) are requested to reply to the patch installation under this post before 24:00 Beijing time on August 15, 2020. Starting from August 16, 2020, Beijing time, we will withdraw votes for witnesses who have not responded to the installation of patch files and vote for witnesses who have installed patch files. If the number of witnesses supporting the installation of patch files is insufficient, CN vote will enable the standby witness to supplement the number of witnesses.

The cn-vote will continue to be committed to maintaining the credit, fairness and justice of BTS blockchain system. We support all legal and beneficial system upgrades.

If the witness has any problems in installing the patch, please contact wechat: Xiaoyuan 409
