Snapshot date, or rather snapshot block, has finally been announced and it should land between 28th and 30th of September. This means that early movers still have a few more days to participate in the SPR <---> HLM coin redemption by buying SPR at Bittrex before the snapshot.
It has still not been confirmed whether Bittrex, or any other exchange for that matter, will support the HLM coin redemption, so storing your coins inside your SPR wallet is the safest bet until you hear otherwise.
Quote from Coins101 on BCT forum:
Hey @everyone we are targeting Spreadcoin block 1,644,100 as the snapshot date. This is subject to exchange confirmation, so it is subject to change. As you can tell, we could do with a bit more time to get confirmations from third parties, but we understand the frustrations some people have to just wanting to get on.
The snapshot process itself will happen a day or two after this block height to give the blockchain time to settle and blocks to confirm.
The launch date will follow soon after, but we haven't finalised a date for that yet. We will start mining for around 4 days which gives us time to generate the pre-mine coins we will need based on the snapshot data. We'll do some reconciliations with the exchange.
During the mining process, we'll be earning rewards, which we'll probably burn.
We won't be giving out dates on the actual launch until:
- We have a pool up and running (we have a pool operator launching with us)
- The wallets are compiled and ready
- Github is up with the latest source
- The budget proposals website is up (it is actually up just needs to run off Heliumd)
- We have the green light from the exchange that we've agreed on the reconciliation of accounts)
Once the exchange is 100% happy, we'll give more details.
If anyone has technical skills and wants to run the snapshot script as a test, please feel free.
