Note on locking up Celo Gold

Quick note on locking up too much Celo Gold (cGLD). Please be careful! If you lock up too much, you will not be able to pay for transaction fees needed to execute some CLI commands. Please keep at least 1 cGLD unlocked. If this happens to you, for the next few hours only, let me know. I will faucet you an extra 1 cGLD which you can use to unlock some gold. You will be required to return the 1 cGLD within 12 hours or you will be disqualified. You must make your request to me by 1200 UTC 1/15. After that, the only way to obtain Celo Gold will be to run a full node.

Hi Claire,

Thanks for bringing this valid point to participants attention. I would like to propose extending the time frame allowed for participants to reach out to you till 2000 UTC 1/17. The post on the forum went out after 8pm PST/ 11pm EST and asks to reach out till 4am PST/ 7am EST. Since it is not a critical security alert, people in those timezone should be allowed to rest and take time off from monitoring the forum.

Thank you
