We are pleased to announce the release of Peercoin v0.10 (Codename Scarab). Look below for more details concerning this release.
- Rebase to Bitcoin Core 0.20.1 Codebase
- Scarab Splash Screen
- Bugfixes and polish
As part of our endeavor to modernize Peercoin’s codebase, we are releasing Peercoin v0.10, a simple, optional, and non-breaking upgrade. It is an updated client running the v0.9 protocol. This new version includes all the fresh goodies from upstream Bitcoin-core, but is stripped of all elements which make no sense in the context of Peercoin.
Upgrading is optional. If you run some mission critical deployment like a mining pool or an exchange, it is best that you continue deploying v0.9.
Big thanks to volunteers who have made this release possible:
Before installation, make sure to backup your wallet from the main menu.
The v0.10 client can be downloaded from the wallets page of peercoin.net. For existing users upgrading from v0.9, upgrade instructions can also be found on that page. If you need help with installation, leave a comment below.
