Dear scalenet gentlemen,
Your new BCHN overlords have come up with the idea to either deep reorg or completely restart scalenet so that we can change ASERT activation logic from MTP-based to height-based (for performance reasons) on all networks.
Scalenet was planned to be deep reorged back to height 10,000 periodically. If we do this reorg later, it will change the ASERT activation height. Hence the proposal is to do the reorg as soon as possible, so that ASERT will always activate shortly after height 10,000. This height will then remain the same after future deep reorgs, so it can then be hardcoded. Alternatively, we could restart scalenet completely with ASERT from genesis, but note that future reorgs will cause an instamine in that case, because of the absolute schedule.
