Hard fork and beyond

#1

What will determine when the hard fork will take place? Network activity? A certain amount of time?

After the hard fork takes place the only criteria for running a node will be proper hardware and 25k Eng. It has been said by the team that the minimum amount will eventually be lowered, how will this be handled? It would be against the interest of the current node owners to vote in favor of this.

Good questions. Also, keep in mind that there has been no indication that there will be any kind of Governance or DPoS on Enigma (nodes don’t have any sort of voting rights). It could be announced I supposed, but nothing has been even hinted at in this regard that I’ve seen.

Which means it will be up to the team to decide when to lower requirements. What criteria are they looking for? Network congestion? Is it timed based?
