Dear fellow Reddheads:

I’ve now tagged the alpha version of PoSV wallet for testnet as posv-alpha in github repo. The last PoW block on testnet is 20999. Please follow the steps below:

  1. git clone
  2. git checkout posv-alpha
  3. compile both daemon and QT wallet on your platform
  4. remove all blockchain related files and folders and only keep your testnet wallet.dat
  5. encrypt your wallet.dat, which is a must for staking (i.e. minting)
  6. start your daemon / QT wallet with testnet=1 either on command line or config file. also our dedicated node: addnode=
  7. The last PoW block is 20999 which was reached a short while ago.
  8. Once the blockchain is sync’ed, you can enable staking on QT wallet by go to menu Settings -> Unlock Wallet. You will see a new checkbox saying: “For staking only”. Leave it as it is. You can enable staking on daemon with RPC call “reddcoind walletpassphrase $yourpassword 9999999 true”
  9. You can check the status of staking by pointing mouse over the new icon at the bottom right corner of QT wallet, or by RPC call getstakinginfo.
  10. You’ll see your staking transactions on the Transactions tab. All of them are with type Generated.
  11. Post your testnet addresses below so we can randomly send each other coins.

This testing is only for tech-savvy users. I’m keeping the instructions very concise. Please post any question below.
