The Kava mainnet launch was scheduled to occur Nov 5th, 2019 at 14:00 UTC. The proposed genesis file was released at approximately Nov 4th, 2019 at 14:00 UTC. Validators coordinated to verify the correctness of the genesis file, and a minor issue with the vesting terms of a few accounts was uncovered. A patch was applied to the genesis file around Nov 5th at 08:00 UTC. Communication was made through social media to make validators aware of the updated genesis file and then need to restart their node if they had already downloaded the previous genesis file.
