Among the many innovations: new wallets with mnemonic backup and recovery, changing the size of blocks, reducing ring signatures, the history of wallets will be stored in the blockchain, another consensus algorithm.

Hardfork monero
The user Reddit under the nickname “sech1” wrote that Monero (XMR) hard forks will be held on March 9, 2019 at a block of 1,788,000. The main purpose of hardfork is to oppose ASIC mining, which has now made the Monero network completely centralized.

The network will be updated on the branch with minor changes in consensus and code corrections. For example, a new mining algorithm and block size will be implemented.

Hardfork Monero is aimed at countering ASIC miners, the previous update had virtually no effect on coin mining on these devices, at the moment about 85% of the network hashrate falls on them. The update will take place at block number 1 788 000. The decision to upgrade was made by developers in a narrow circle, which led to dissatisfaction of community members whose opinions were not taken into account.
