IOG further urged users to upgrade their Daedalus to the latest version to avoid interruption of operation once the Alonzo hard fork goes live in relatively 2 days’ time:
“To ensure uninterrupted wallet operation, be sure to upgrade Daedalus before the HFC event on Sunday, September 12th @ 21:44 UTC. For a bit of fun, we’ve also enabled a countdown. Click out the confetti icon in the top-right of the screen to see it.
“Existing users will get a prompt to update via the Daedalus newsfeed. If you are new to Daedalus remember – download it ONLY from the official site.”
