Make sure all of your stored VTC is on updated software. (If you can't update at this very moment, make sure to do it before you going to spend your coins) Below is a list of tools you will need to get through the fork.

Roughly one week til fork - 53% of the network upgraded! If you're one of the folks still running 0.13.3 or even older, please make sure you upgrade soon - once the 0.14 nodes start working on Lyra2REv3 the older nodes will start getting banned from the new ones and you'll be on a dead chain.

Anyone with VTC on Yobit Exchange needs to move their coins to a supported wallet since they require payment for installing our upgrade. We feel upgrading full nodes is part of an exchange’s job and what it's users pay fees for.

Please make sure to upgrade your Vertcoin Core Wallets to the latest version. Vertcoin Core versions prior to 0.13.3 have now split from the main chain as the inflation vulnerability they contain has been exploited. If you haven't upgraded already, do so now as you are on a forked chain with an inflated supply.
The Vertcoin Foundation - We are in the process of setting up a foundation. This entity will help to formalise the project's leadership and development. It will take custody of the various trademarks, web services, and donated funds currently held by the numerous individuals who have contributed to Vertcoin over the years. We are finishing the paperwork, and the board had its first meeting. We are also filing for a 501(c)(3) exemption, which will provide a plethora of tax benefits to the project and its donors.
