At block 307500 which is approximately 10.30am BST on May 30th Electroneum will have the fork. That is planned, ASIC-resistant fork following the successful Monero fork Lithium Luna with its ASIC resistance.
- Anti- ASIC
- Transfer Fee Increase
- Increase block size before a penalty
- Disabling of RingCT & Mixin
- Mempool life to 3 days
- 2-minute blocks (1-minute before the fork)
- Doubling the Block Reward (to keep it up the increased blocks timing)
- Reduce difficulty window

It might seem that it is the end of the story, but we suddenly have another Electroneum fork announced at bitcointalk – Electronero ETNX. The “team” claims to provide:
more reliable platform to current, past Electroneum and future Electronero users
The main aims of Electronero cannot be really clearly stated even in their 10-page whitepaper (it actually has 8 pages of the text that means something).
You might want to read the Exposing the Electronero fork as well.
For all the Electroneum users – it is promised that you claim your new Electronero 1:1 ETNX for ETN. But don’t risk if you will be asked to use your ETN keys in the new ETNX wallet (that is not even released, by the way) as it might be fraudsters that will steal all your ETN.
The only good thing about Electronero is that it’s not trying to become ASIC-friendly fork as happened to Monero and Monero Classic. More details in this article.
