Binance today announced a successful testnet Heisenberg upgrade, following which the Malta-based cryptocurrency exchange also revealed that the validators of the ecosystem had agreed to execute the hard fork upgrade on block height 51,467,800.

According to an official post on Binance Chain’s website, members of the community reported a bug in v0.6.3 on 20 November. This bug, which affected the entire node of v0.6.3’s capability to process multi-send transactions containing multiple inputs from the same address, has now been located and following the development, the patch version v0.6.3-hf.1 of the full chain of the coin chain has been released.

The post further detailed,

“If you are using the v0.6.3 version of the software during the synchronization process, please follow the steps below to recover: Download tool state-recover from node-binary; Backup home directory; Assuming your node is syncing to height h, you can revert to the previous height:h-1; Restart with v0.6.3-hf.1 version bnbchaind.”

The mainnet activation scheduled for 28 November is aimed at expanding the scope of business that the Binance chain can handle through blockchain logic. As mentioned in the exchange’s previous press release, the upgrade will enhance the performance within Binance’s ecosystem, especially for a larger number of addresses.

In terms of lot-size enhancements, the platform is looking to calculate the lot size based on its price against BNB in the upcoming match engine of Binance DEX with the new upgrade. Additionally, the new Binance chain will allow for both quote asset and base asset owners to list transactions within its network, once the upgrade is activated.
