What To Expect In Stacks 2.1, The Next Major Stacks Network Upgrade
3 projects | reddit.com/r/stacks | 13 Sep 2021
Serendipity has occurred. At the launch of Stacks 2.0, the intent was for 2.1 to automatically go live at Bitcoin block 700,000. However, due to a bug this is not going to happen — the Stacks 2.0 chain will continue indefinitely(see#2507). But, we see this as blessing in disguise. We are strong believers in multi-stakeholder blockchain governance, and we believe that Stackers and miners should also have a say in when and how breaking changes occur — it shouldn’t be just the decision of developers. Therefore, we are going to take this opportunity to make sure that when the 2.1 upgrade is ready, it will only activate with the consent of the network.

That's the current plan. There's an open issue about whether or not to push it back, make it so users can vote to extend it, or just make it so that STX holders can police miners and make sure they don't discount-mine: https://github.com/blockstack/stacks-blockchain/issues/2613
Stack Stacks ($STX) to earn Sats ($BTC)

Reward cycles are 2100 blocks long -- 2000 blocks to pay 4000 BTC reward addresses, and 100 blocks for miners to vote to begin the next reward cycle. The reason for the 100 blocks that are necessarily PoB is quite technical, but there's an issue describing the problem it solves here: https://github.com/blockstack/stacks-blockchain/issues/1805
