因 BTS4.0 版本升级中，发生了部分开发人员未经社区投票便修改投票系统代码的事件， 造成了社区巨大争议。虽然近一个月以来，公会和社区各方做出了很多艰苦的努力，但截止目前该事件仍未形成各方统一的解决方案。
为了坚持 DPOS 共识、维护 DEFI 信用，同时最大程度保护投资者利益，避免对现有 BTS 网络稳定性造成影响，公会从大局出发，经全体公会成员讨论投票，决定于北京时间 2020 年 9 月 10 日 21:55 分执行分叉，分叉出的新币命名 NBS，英文全称 New BitShares，中文名新比特股。
BTS 作为世界上第一个去中心化 DEFI 金融项目，也是第一个去中心化交易所，商业技术前景十分巨大。我们认为，目前 BTS 面临的主要问题是内部管理效率较为低下，导致其无法适应日新月异的市场变化。以公会为主导的 NBS 将继承 BTS 的所有技术优势，彻底摆脱BTS 内部管理不顺畅的难题，将 BTS 的技术真正实现落地应用。
NBS 将始终遵守 DPOS 共识，本次分叉仅将未经 DPOS 批准的篡改功能进行回退，其余部分均继续沿用 BTS4.0 版本功能。

Announcement on Forking New Chain NBS （new bitshares）
Due to the BTS4.0 version upgrade, one core BitShares developer (hired via DPOS onchain consensus) tampered the voting system code without voting by the community, which caused huge controversy in the community. Although BCA and all parties in the community have made a lot of hard work in the past month, so far the incident has not yet formed an acceptable solution for all parties.
In order to adhere to the DPOS consensus and maintain DEFI credit, while protecting the interests of investors and avoiding impacts on the stability of the existing BTS network, after discussion and voting by all members of BCA， BCA decided to fork BTS. The fork will be executed at 21:55 on September 10, 2020 Beijing time (CST). The new coin symbol is “NBS” and come with a full name as “New BitShares”.
As the first decentralized DEFI financial project and the first decentralized exchange ，which developed by Daniel Larimer （BM）, BitShares does for business what bitcoin did for money by utilizing distributed consensus technology to create companies that are inherently global, transparent, trustworthy, efficient and most importantly profitable. In our view, the main problem BitShares facing is the inefficient governance of the DAO committee , which makes it unable to adapt to the changing market. NBS （new bitshares） led by BCA, will inherit all the technical advantages of BTS, completely get rid of the problem of unsmooth internal management of BTS, and truly promote
the application of BTS technology in real world.
NBS will always comply with the DPOS consensus. This fork will only reverse the tampering functions that have not been approved by DPOS, and the rest of the functions of BTS4.0 will continue to be used.
The specific allocation rules of NBS are as follows：
- Before the execution of the fork, all non-exchange accounts that voted for BCA will receive a 1:1 airdrop.
- Before the execution of the fork, the exchange that announced that they support airdrops and support the listing of NBS trading pairs will receive 1:1 airdrops.
- Before the execution of the fork, for exchange that only support airdrops (candy), airdrops will be based on a 10:1 ratio.
- The snapshot on BTS chain shall be executed at 21:55 on September 10, 2020, Beijing time. After the data are sorted out, airdrops shall be issued to all the above accounts. Please make a snapshot of each exchange at the same time to facilitate the distribution of NBS.
- Accounts holding CNVOTE can be exchanged for NBS at a 4:1 conversion ratio, which is valid forever. With a total of 1.2 billion CNVOTE, we will establish a total of 300 million NBS exchange accounts on the NBS chain. The CNVOTE used to redeem NBS will be destroyed. Other relevant policies for CNVOTE remain unchanged, and monthly airdrops and repurchases will continue as usual.
- Cross-chain plan: BCA will issue a total of 500 million NEWBS tokens on the BTS network as a cross-chain asset between the NBS network and the BTS network. The NEWBS asset issued on the BTS network and the core asset NBS on the NBS network can be swapped 1:1 across the chain, which is permanently valid.
- Super Candy Plan: From September 10th to December 31st, 2020 (CST), 20 million NEWBS tokens will be airdropped every month, and all accounts delegated to BCA will be equally distributed according to the total number of proxy votes ( counted by the lowest value of five random snapshots per month , The first snapshot is taken at the fork time, and all airdrops obtained in the current month will be delivered before the 15th of the following month).
- Promotion plan: Exchanges that support the online trading of NBS will receive 3-10 million NBS rewards; BCA allies will receive 5 million NBS rewards, and the total amount of various rewards will not exceed 100 million NBS.
- Establish a lock-up mining account with a total of 500 million NBS, dedicated to lock-up mining on the NBS chain. The specific details will be notified separately.
- The total amount of NBS is 3.6 billion. Except for the distributed and circulating NBS, all the rest are included in the fund pool as witness expenses and subsequent development, promotion and marketing funds. BCA will strictly control the expenditure of the fund pool on the premise of complying with the DPOS principle. At the same time, BCA will promote the reasonable separation of administrative and operational powers, so as to ensure both fairness and efficiency.
