The Klaytn team announced via Medium on Thursday that its Cypress hard fork will commence in a few hours. The Cypress hard fork will occur at 86816005 block height (Estimated time: 13:00 ~ 14:00 UTC+9). Following the network upgrade, its Cypress gas price adjustment will come into effect at 87091200 block height (Estimated time: April 3rd 17:30 ~ 19:30 UTC+9).
