Flow Mainnet will be sporking on 2023-04-26 at 08:00 AM PT/ 3:00 pm UTC going from Mainnet-22 to Mainnet-23.
The Flow access nodes will be turned off during that time. Once the spork is complete, at around 8:25 AM PT, a message will be posted on the message forum and Discord requesting you to start your nodes.
Please ensure you have subscribed for updates on https://forum.onflow.org/c/mainnet-sporks or have joined the Discord #flow-validators channel.
Your keys will be carried from the current spork, so there is no need to resubmit the keys.
We will request you start your node at around 8:25 AM.
