   So the new addresses begin with S? Please correct me if I am wrong, I thought Rob said they will start with "R". 

Rob Halford:

A lot do but all these base 58 addresses span up to 2 characters (R or S) as you get far into the alphabet. I tried decrementing one to always get R but ended up with mostly Q so I had to go up by one and ended with R+S

Something interesting for people to know. The foundation was trying to make a 2.77 million GRC payment and it kept getting rejected due to NSF. The problem was the server needed to have the balance reserved and out of stake in order to send it. If this ever happens to you do this :

reservebalance true AMOUNT

Wait a few blocks

Then send it.
