In the last few days, we carefully evaluated the current situation around the COVID-19 pandemic. Considering the scale of damage it is causing around the world, including traditional and crypto markets, we decided to postpone the proposal deadline and the election end-date by 4 weeks. 

Auto-elected spots get announced on April 12th with the cutoff time being April 12th 2020, 12pm UTC. The new deadline to submit proposals is April 13, 12:00 UTC. And the election ends on May 4th 2020, 12:00 UTC We will re-asses the situation 14 days from now and we will keep you updated on any changes. 

Running a Notary Node is a complex task and we believe this time can now be better used for preparation for the pandemic and taking care of your loved ones. Stay safe, everyone.
