The bitcoin-central.net website will undergo technical maintenance starting on Friday the 13th of May at 10:00 GMT for approximately 30 minutes.
The goal is to deploy some improvements as well as changes in authentication, the details of the changes are available at BC's github repository (https://github.com/davout/bitcoin-central
). The main change will be switching from SHA2 in passwords encryption to bcrypt.
You will need to confirm your e-mail address, as valid e-mail addresses will now be required (rest assured that you will get e-mailed only in very specific circumstances).
As a result of the encryption scheme change it won't be possible to login anymore with your password, so you will have to use the new "Password forgotten" feature after e-mail confirmation (I purposefully never had access to any cleartext password).
If your address is not valid and you fail to modify it by then you will still be able to e-mail me to have it changed, on this occasion I might ask you to confirm your password to manually check it against its SHA256 hash before updating your e-mail address.
Thank you !
