Qtum team will be doing a hard fork this month and it will be extremely beneficial for the users that are staking the coins. There will be no coin or token created.
The upcoming hard fork for Qtum 2.0 will add new smart contract capability, reduce long block spacing and increase the blocks per day, giving staking Qtum Core wallets a 12.5% raise. The hard fork will happen at block 466,600 (~3:00 pm GMT on October 17, 2019) and only applies to the Qtum Core wallets Qtum-Qt and qtumd, no other wallets.
While updated wallets will make the hard fork automatically, users that don’t update in time will see their Qtum Core wallets disconnected from the main network, will not be able to make transactions, and (for staking wallets) may see their coins staked on a split chain, where they are difficult to recover. The update doesn’t apply to any other Qtum wallets, such as the Web wallet, hardware wallets and mobile wallets.
The mainnet hard fork is scheduled for Oct 16th, 2019. Again, for the curious ones, you won’t get a new, free coin.
