Scheduled Biometrics servers update and reset

Scheduled Biometrics servers update and reset

Dear human nodes,

We have an important announcement to share with you regarding the biometrics servers on the Humanode chain. There will be a reset to the biometrics servers for Biometric AI upgrades + CVM improvements sometime between 10:00 UTC to 18:30 UTC on Thursday, June 22, 2023.

For node runners, this update means that you will need to go through bioauthentication enrollment to ensure that your node continues to run seamlessly.  

One thing to note is that this server update will not affect BotBasher verification.

We understand that this reset is time-sensitive, and we will make a quick announcement before the reset is initiated so that everyone is ready to re-enroll and re-authenticate within an epoch to avoid downtime in the validator status.

Here’s a guideline for you to stay synced and ready.

  1. Wait for the official announcement from the engineering team.
  2. Shortly before the reset, the engineering team will notify you when they start working on the reset and will keep you updated as the process goes on.
  3. Once the reset is completed, there will be an announcement so that you can start the enrollment and authentication immediately.

Don't worry, this reset won't impact the longevity of running your node as long as you don't change your substrate address, and re-enroll and re-authenticate within 2 to 3 hours after the reset.

On the bright side, this is a perfect opportunity for those who lost their keys or want to change to Substrate address to run a node. All you need to do is run the launcher using the new Substrate address.

Thank you for your cooperation!
