The Altair council has proposed a motion for Runtime Upgrade 6 on Altair, which will contain the following:
- XCM integration with Karura - allowing for AIR and kUSD to be transferred from/to Karura
Link to the motion in the portal: Polkadot/Substrate Portal
Link to the motion on Subscan: Subscan | Aggregate Substrate ecological network High-precision Web3 explorer
Link to Github release: Release Altair v0.10.13 Release · centrifuge/centrifuge-chain · GitHub
It will be followed by another motion to fast-track Runtime Upgrade 6 so it will be enacted as soon the referendum vote ends.
Once the proposal has become a referendum, all token holders can use their AIR to vote on it. The referendum will be open for people to vote on for ~5700 blocks (~2 days with an average block time of 30 sec).
Runtime Upgrade 6 is a prerequisite for opening the HRMP channels between Altair >< Karura so another council motion will follow shortly after to put this to a referendum vote as well. There will be a separate post about this.
Remember, that you don’t lose your AIR by voting on referenda - they are just locked for the duration of the vote. After that, they will be available for transfer again. You can make your vote count for more by voting with conviction which means that you can vote with up to 6X the amount of tokens you have, by locking them for a longer period of time.
