[quote=“saeveritt, post:15, topic:3824”][quote=“philipma1957, post:14, topic:3824”]Common sense dictates at least 90 day notice for the forced changed. I sent off my coins and sold then all at bittrex because of the way this was announced.
If I was given ninety day notice and a mac upgrade was issued alongside the other updates it would be easier to do this.[/quote]
I was made aware of the mandatory upgrade by reading Sunny King’s consistent weekly updates.
Backing up your wallet on windows or linux using the Peerunity client is straightforward. Find the toolbar and go to File>Backup Wallet.
Where you store the backup is up to your own discretion.
[quote=“philipma1957, post:14, topic:3824”]SO of course a forced update (with an anti mac bias) has caused me to bail from this coin.
no reason to release partial forced updates for a coin touted as a minting coin[/quote]
The updating process doesn’t affect the coin age you’ve accumulated because there is no need to transact with your coins.
Transacting would destroy the coin age you’ve accumulated for no reason. A simple backup before updating will suffice.[/quote]
I understand your desire to defend the coin. I respect that.
Sadly for me this coin won’t work as a passive investment and hedge coin . Due to the method of updating from 5.2 to 5.3
My first awareness of the update was on Saturday the 16th of April.
I check my minting at least two time a day on my mac version of peerunity 5.2
Here was my first notice
Upgrade to v0.5.3 or compatible required before April 25, visit peercointalk.org
that was 9 days notice. Should have been much sooner Since the point of this coin is it mints I do not need to mine or trade I can let it mint.
Once again when I went to load the wallet it was offered in Windows ,Linux and MAC
I know from BTC that perfect mindless save of a wallet by cloning with the software superduper makes mac a good choice.
Far better then any windows backup of wallet.dat
So I went with mac which is not offered at this moment to go to 5.3
so basically for me this coin does not work.
I do wish you luck with it running in windows and or linux.
I am now fully out of the coin other then my 5.2 peerunity wallet with .19 coins
I will look back in a bit and attempt to to save this in the more traditional methods that you mention.
But this was not the way to attract passive investment.
I went from a perfectly backed up wallet minting to a wallet that needs to be fully upgraded in seven days. except the upgrade is not available because I am on mac.
There was no good reason to put windows and linux upgrades up and not mac
There was no good reason to give only nine days notice on my peerunity wallet.
