This is the moment everyone has been waiting for!!
Today we are happy to announce Merge's Decentralized Exchange. Please welcome to MergeDEX!!

https://trade.mergedex.com/market/BIRAKE.MERGE_BIRAKE.BTC

Merge has joined Birake's network of exchange platforms, a new and innovative concept that uses the security of blockchain technology to share orderbooks among all the exchanges that belong to such network. This means that MergeDEX, since day one, has already a list of paired coins and trading volume coming from their shared orderbooks. That includes the pair for the Merge Coin with Bitcoin: MERGE/BTC

Even more, orders from traders will automatically be sent to all those exchanges within the Birake's network, exposing the buying and selling requests to a wider audience and, thus, increasing the chances to fulfill them.

Another great feature about the Birake's network of exchange platforms is that when traders trade Merge, Merge will receive 30% of the fees involved in the transaction/trade in the form of BIR. This BIR will be reinvested into buying Merge on the open market. Meaning the Core team is using the Merge transaction fees to purchase the traders Merge to fund the budget to pay for usecases in the future. In a sense a usecase that will fund further usecases.

More details and all relevant information including addresses to track the funds will be released on this topic in the upcoming days. There are more benefits that will be addressed also once all is in place.

This update is Mandatory!

Please update to v1.0.3 <https://gitlab.projectmerge.org/ProjectMerge/merge/tags/v1.0.3> as soon as possible.

From today the moment the Merge network gets consensus those not upgraded will be banned from the network.

This is mandatory, it requires a wallet update, a complete MN stop, replace files and restart, both of your MN on the VPS and a start alias from within your wallet.

We found at least one person staking and continuously paying a bad masternode to get the full block reward. So in a security measure the keys are changing so we can turn on the enforcement.
This new update will be turning on the code to enforce a rule that is there.

Please update to v1.0.3 <https://gitlab.projectmerge.org/ProjectMerge/merge/tags/v1.0.3> A.S.A.P.

Thank you

@​everyone

As a reminder,
Please update to v1.0.3 <https://gitlab.projectmerge.org/ProjectMerge/merge/tags/v1.0.3> as soon as possible.

This update is Mandatory!

This requires a local wallet qt stop, replace/update qt and restart wallet. Also a complete MN stop, replace qt file and restart, wherever its being hosted, then a MN start alias from within your wallet. The protocol has been changed from 70912 to 70913.

From today the moment the Merge network achieves consensus those not upgraded will be banned from the network.

We found at least one person staking and continuously paying a bad masternode to get the full block reward. So in a security measure the keys are changing so we can turn on the enforcement. This new update will be turning on the code to enforce a rule that is there.

Also we need your help to get listed on the Blockfolio app. We currently are working on getting listed on more sites such as CoinMarketCap, CoinGecko, etc. and updating the links and information in #listings. As we receive verification of these listings we will announce them over time. https://feedback.blockfolio.com/coin-requests/p/merge
Note - Please use the up arrow to vote on the Blockfolio site .

Want to help the value and price of Merge?
We welcome https://merge.appareljunction.com. It is our new apparel site but also another usecase for Merge. It offers 50/50 Profit Sharing. 50% of the purchase will be used to buy Merge on exchange and deposited to Merge budget. Plus 50% off shipping. International shipping is available.
For example - @375 sats Merge, that's an estimated 512 Merge buy order that will be placed on the MergeDex exchange ~$10
Please DM DFWplay#3317 your order # and he just may send you some Free Merge for your contribution.

Thank you from the Merge team. Have a great weekend.

Birake has joined us in our quest to get listed on Blockfolio!

They are working to get all 7 exchange communities to work together. The Merge vote is to get Merge coin listed. The Birake vote is to get the exchanges listed. We have 2K people in our community and Birake 6K. This does not include the other 6 exchange communities populations. In a sense all sharing a network for our exchanges, we are one very large community. Lets show eachother support.

Please if you can vote for Merge and Birake as well. We need your support to achieve this. It only takes 2 minutes of your time to work toward increasing the value of Merge and spread our presence throughout the crypto community.

Thanks from Merge team

@​everyone

These are:
- Masternode Payment Enforcement
- Banning of peers on the old protocol
If you have not updated to v1.0.3 your MNs and wallets will be kicked off the network and stop recieving rewards.
Please update A.S.A.P.
Thank you.

@​everyone
Please if you have any addnodes in your Merge conf file, in your local wallet or MN please remove them. They are no longer needed and confusing the network.
Local wallet - Please shut down your wallet, open your conf file and delete the addnodes. Then start local wallet.
MN - Please stop your MN, open your conf file and delete the addnodes, save it and start your MN. You will not lose your place in the reward line. There is a 2hr timeout window before your MN is listed as missing.
Also anyone not updated to v1.0.3 Protocol 70913 Please do so A.S.A.P. You will be kicked off the network once the sporks kick in.

We are pleased to share our next goals with the below Roadmap.

What has been accomplished?

Our team has been working rigorously night and day, 24/7 for almost a year, to help realize the most creative and ambitious ideas that makes Merge a success.
<https://kb.projectmerge.org/>
<https://hub.projectmerge.org/bringing-blockchains-together/>

First we began with the swaps. The founders and core team had an overwhelming desire to Merge as many communities as possible together, all while helping those who found themselves in a similar position as ourselves. It was a success and we are very pleased that you chose to join our community! The swap site will now be used as a future usecase: <https://swap.projectmerge.org/#/>

Next we ventured into finding an exchange. After deliberation and planning, we decided to list on the Birake network. Shared exchange networks are the next evolution in the cryptocurrency markets. We see this as an opportunity to land on the playing field, guide and develop it into the way that fits our community and investors. For every trade transaction, the fees are converted and sent to the Merge budget. This is also currently being used as a usecase! <https://www.mergedex.com/>

After that we started a Merge Merchandise shop. This might not seem useful, but there is a 50/50 profit sharing and the proceeds are used to buy MERGE from you off of the MergeDex Exchange and sent the proceeds to the Merge budget. This is also currently being used as a usecase! <https://merge.appareljunction.com/>

What comes next?

Now we venture into the continuance and full contribution from the team for creating usecases, products and services. Our plan is to begin to disclose these as time progresses. The below Roadmap is a rough estimate and our goal is to have many finished much sooner than projected. So we reach out to you and ask for your non-solitude and contribution.
Lets build value for everyone!

We hope you had a great and a happy Easter time!

Today we are glad to announce our new product and service: The Merge Block Explorer

This is another usecase for the Merge budget. See it here: <https://explorer.projectmerge.org/>

PIVX is currently running one of our variations of The Merge Block Explorer as their official block explorer. Great job Development team! <https://explorer.pivx.org/>

Plan Options

1. Basic

It will be distributed for free to anyone to promote/advertise Merge and help those in need at the same time.

Features: Only a block explorer.

2. Enhanced

It will be given a charge in the form of a monthly subscription: $20 a month subscription charge.

No set up fee for a limited time. This will require a payment for 12 months in advance of $240. Can be accepted in fiat or any cryptocurrency. 100% will be bought and distributed to the Merge budget.

Features: Explorer, Masternodes, Coin Supply (MERGE), Difficulty, Height, Connections, Masternode, Movement, Top 100, Network, API.

With a smoother flow, added the masternode list, added nodes off of network (which is no longer needed for MERGE, but we will keep it for other coins).

Today we would like to extend our offer on Apparel Junction: <https://merge.appareljunction.com>

Apparel Junction is not only a place where to buy Merge merchandise. It's also the online store where any other crypto currencies can sell their merchandise. Add your products in Apparel Junction and, in turn, your profits will be used to buy your coin on an exchange, driving the price up from the "buy orders" book. Your coins will then be sent to your project's budget. Details:

- No listing fees. Add your products without any entry costs.
- 50% of the profits goes to Apparel Junction to cover their costs.
- 40% of the profits are used to buy your coins on an exchange within Birake's network (for example, MergeDEX). These coins will be sent to your project's budget.
- 10% of the profits are used to buy MERGE on the exchange. These coins will be sent to Merge's budget.

Note: if your coin is not listed on an exchange within Birake's network, then a minimum of $200 will have to be generated before trading on exchange. We reserve the right to trade on any exchange where your coin is available.
