Official Release – Reddcoin Core v2.0.0 Wallet

Dear Reddheads:

I am pleased to announce that the new v2.0.0 wallet is now officially released.

You can download pre-compiled binaries directly from our ( account. Or if you prefer, you can compile directly from source.

  • Linux 32 & 64 bit
  • Windows 32 & 64 bit
  • OSx 64 bit
  • Updated bootstrap.dat (if needed)

Reddcoin 2.0.0 is a complete rebuild based off Bitcoin 0.9. This means in terms of the code-base we have introduced all the Bitcoin changes up to and including v0.9.5 into this version of Reddcoin Core.

Taking this path will allow faster adoption of critical fixes and features.

Within this release we have also included some features from the 0.10 bitcoin build, including a connected peers tab and visual bandwidth monitoring

We suggest to read the release notes of Bitcoin up to and including 0.9.5 to get a full understanding of the changes.

On top of the new features, Reddcoin Core v2.0.0 update contains very important security fixes and all users MUST upgrade to this version as soon as possible. Details on several vulnerabilities were made public by the Bitcoin team(Official Bitcoin warning) regarding the issues. It is particularly important that users who are staking do upgrade.

This release introduces BIP66, and version 4 blocks. Once BIP 66 is enforced, version 3 blocks will be rejected from the network entirely as they contain less secure transactions.

This means, if you are staking, you need to upgrade so that you don’t risk miss out on your staking rewards

Details of other notable changes are posted on Github Releases

To Upgrade

First, make a copy (backup) of your existing wallet.dat and Reddcoin data folder

Where to find your Reddcoin data folder?

  1. Windows: C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Reddcoin
  2. Mac: /Users/USER NAME/Library/Application Support/Reddcoin
  3. Linux:~/.reddcoin

Install Reddcoin Core software

  1. Uninstall your old wallet
  2. Install your new wallet

If you follow this procedure, we should be able to help you further if the need arises.

The new wallet is compatible with the old blockchain files. There is no need to re-sync from the start.

    The best and only option for the wallets installed in the PC is wait untill finish the syncro. You dont lost your found, it is waiting the total update.
