Mandatory Update

The COLX Core v1.0.4 is a mandatory update for all users. The budget and reward rules have been updated and will require this mandatory update beginning on block 388,800, which will occur on June 30th, 2018. Please update your wallets immediately. After block 388,800, wallets that have not been updated to v1.0.4 will no longer be able to connect to the ColossusXT network.

How to Upgrade

Shut down wallet. Wait until it has completely shut down, then run the installer on Windows or just copy over /Applications/COLX-Qt (on Mac) or colxd/colx-qt (on Linux).

Notable Changes

Important Changes to secure Dev Fundings/New Coin Parameters

To help fund the development of the ColossusXT project toward our roadmap goals and increase POS Staking and Masternode rewards, the block reward will be adjusted from 1000 COLX per block to 1500 COLX per block. The new block reward distribution will be as follows:

  • 80% (1200 COLX per block) will go to users for Staking and Masternode rewards. This will be an advantage for this user group as it will be 200 COLX higher per block than actual distribution.
  • 10% (150 COLX per Block) will go directly to the official Developer Fund Address.
  • 10% (150 COLX per Block) will be used for proposals/budget system.
  • Transaction Fees will now go directly to the official Developer Fund Address rather than being burned.
  • If there are no proposals approved in the budget payment cycle, these funds will be routed to the official Developer Fund Address.
