Ubuntu, Debian and Raspbian packages have been posted:


Hi their, I have the raspberri pi+ peerbox.

I have no idea what im doing, Linux doesnt feel intuitive at all.

Ive unpacked the zip file and navigated to bin/64/peercoin-qt on the PI.

doubleclick says “please select an application to open executable files”

now Im stumped.

That’s not how you operate the Peerbox.

Well at this stage I’m looking into installing windows IOT core and seeing if that will run the new Peercoin client, all I want to do is run the new version v7, the instructions says on the Peercoin website to run the exact file name under Linux installation instructions and raspian is Linux?

I think you got it all wrong from the start. How did you setup your Raspberry Pi? What did you do originally, the thing you’ve called “Peerbox”?

what happens if you don’t upgrade???

Eg coins are still all ok

You won’t lose coins but you will end up on abandoned fork and wont be able to transact.
Just upgrade.


Peercoin v0.7 Fork activation deadline is tomorrow, March 12th. Make sure you are prepared by upgrading today. You can reach the team for assistance through Telegram or Discord chat.

Instructions: https://medium.com/peercoin/peercoin-v0-7-released-e4a5d4b3e517

how to upgrade PeerBox?


Do I have to do anything different if I miss the deadline?

if you’re too far away from the deadline you may have to redownload the blockchain

Where can I find instructions on how to proceed?

Also, fyi, my node hasnt been online since before the fork

As explained in the first post, instructions are detailed on the wallets page. Let us know if you need any help.
