This update includes the following features and fixes:
- Increased max outbound connections (doubled to 16 from 8)
- Add masternode log category + additional protx error case
- Increase default split threshold for staking
- Better handle long block-times (reduce threshold for verification)
- Fix daemon start output
If you have an existing wallet, it is always a good idea to create a backup prior to updating.
In order to upgrade and existing installation please do the following:
- Create a backup of your wallet
- If you have Masternodes, do not touch them
- Extract the contents of the new wallet file you download from GitHub & run the new bitcorn-qt application
If you have any issues connecting to the BITCORN network, please run these commands in the wallet’s console (Tools > Console):
- addnode seed1.bitcornproject.com add
- addnode seed2.bitcornproject.com add
- addnode seed3.bitcornproject.com add
- addnode seed4.bitcornproject.com add
- addnode seed5.bitcornproject.com add
This update is not mandatory, but definitely will help with your staking. It prevents UTXOs from being split into stacks smaller than 2.5 Million Bitcorn. This will help keep your priority higher for staking rewards.
We also have a new installation guide which is available on our official BITCORN Helpdesk:
Wallet Installation Guide
This guide will walk you through downloading the specific wallet based on your operating system (Windows, Mac, or Linux). It will break down the installation process step-by-step for and provide you with helpful screenshots to demonstrate everything in detail.
