The Ghost team has officially completed the emergency hardfork on Friday, March 5th, that has temporarily disabled RingCT and CT transactions to fix the potential vulnerability from our parent code Particl.
For weeks now, the Ghost team has thoroughly investigated and scanned the outstanding coin supply. Public outputs and anon transfers have also been monitored around the clock. Currently, there has been no evidence of any exploit being used successfully on the Ghost blockchain, but the team will continue to take every necessary precaution to protect the future of GHOST.
Ghost will require a second hardfork in the upcoming weeks. The second hardfork will aim at restoring RingCT and CT transactions, while also preventing any illegitimate coins that could be anonymous, from being used in the future.
As of today, all exchanges have been notified that they are safe to open up deposits and withdrawals once again until further notice.
(WARNING) Updating is mandatory for you to use Ghost and interact with exchanges and individuals. Do not make any transaction using any of the older, Ghost versions as they will not show up after updating.
Please update your Ghost desktop wallet and nodes immediately, if you have not already. https://github.com/ghost-coin/ghost-desktop/releases

We understand that you may have questions out of these sudden updates, the Ghost team will do its best to keep you informed, so keep an eye out for any new information here at GhostVeterans.com!
