This upgrade is not specifically required for end-users, nor exchanges, although they are encouraged to remain on a recent release. The upgrade is mandatory for miners due to the preparation for potential future algo changes such as Odocrypt, even though the upgrade is not yet scheduled and no Odocrypt hashing code has been merged into 6.17.2
