Peercoin v0.8 testing


Peercoin v0.8

We have recently completed our rebase to bitcoin 0.16.3 and release-0.8 branch reached its fourth release candidate.

Peercoin needs your help testing new release. Please update your testnet nodes, run them with debug=1 in config and report all issues that you notice that are not known at github.

Please note that for time being testnet directory is called ~/.peercoin/testnet3, this way you can run current testnet and 0.8 without trashing each others data directory.

Post addresses for testnet coins giveaway if our faucet is not working for you.


I see a lot of bitcoin as text in UI. I am busy syncing atm…


true, translations need to be patched as well


On Windows when I click the buttons in multisig tab (paste, select address), it close the app. (64 bit)

Thanks everyone for testing!

Next release based of the 0.8 branch (RC5) will fork the testnet to the new protocol.

New protocol rules encompass the following RFCs:

And activation of the “Segwit” protocol extension (BIP141).

We are some 30 working days away from this.

When peerassets will be integrated in peercoin wallet? (as optional)


Never. It was never imagined it should be in the “official” wallet.


@Vitalicus can you try again in the right repo this time? :smile:


I see on github is closed, but the problem that crash app still exist. Just downloaded and tested.


I will wait “unofficial” wallet, with integrated peerassets :slight_smile:


you’ve opened it in wrong repository, please open it in peercoin and not rfc


0.8~RC7 has been released.


  • PoW block signature requirement is removed (RFC 0006)
