The big news from the past week in the world of NavCoin is that the 4.4.0 soft-forks have locked in, which activate the Community Fund and double the network contribution to the Fund from 250,000 to 500,000 NAV per year. That means that the world’s first fully decentralised Community Fund is almost ready to go! Once it activates, there will be nothing holding you back from submitting your ideas and applying to have them funded by the network.

After almost a year and a half since the initial conversations began. Now there will be a seven day lock-in period and then the soft-fork will be activated (at block height 2,620,800). The reason for this seven day grace period is to give everyone who hasn’t already done it extra time to upgrade their wallet to the latest version.

Last week was a major milestone in NavCoin history with the release of the Community Fund soft fork. It’s especially significant because it’s a world first - NavCoin has the only truly decentralised fund that uses a dual community voting mechanism to manage both the approval of projects and the distribution of funds. The next step for the Community Fund is activation and for that to happen it’s necessary to get network approval for the NavCoin 4.
