v1.7.3 Release Notes

v1.7.3 is a MANDATORY release for all wallets, masternodes, servers, and seed nodes. We will implement a soft fork at block 90,000 to move to the new Proof of Stake switch over at block 100,000. If you do not upgrade your clients by that date they will be blocked by the network and all nodes running code at 1.7.3.

Please upgrade as soon as possible.

Bug Fixes

  1. Implemented the Fake stake DoS fix for this vulnerability: https://medium.com/@dsl_uiuc/fake-stake-attacks-on-chain-based-proof-of-stake-cryptocurrencies-b8b05723f806

  2. Fixed daemon stability in #5 thanks to Eureka's debugging. Thank you for finding that.

  3. Fixed #8 so the Privacy tab loads properly when zLYTX begins at block 150,000

How to Upgrade Wallets

Windows: Before you begin copy your wallet.dat to a safe location. The wallet.dat file is located in %APPDATA%\Lytix\wallet.dat by default. Stop any running clients. Select the *.exe that matches your operating system (32-bit or 64-bit) and install in the default location. The new binary will start and begin to synchronize.

Mac OSX Mojave: Before you begin copy your wallet.dat to a safe location. The wallet.dat file is located in the ~/Library/Application Support/Lytix directory. Stop any running clients and select the Lytix-1.7.3-Mac-OSX-Mojave.dmg disk image. Open the image and copy the Lytix binary to the Applications folder. If it does not run at start you may have to go into the Utilities/Security & Privacy setting and click on run the Lytix binary anyway. The client should start to load and synchronize at that moment.

Mac OSX 10,x: Before you begin copy your wallet.dat to a safe location. The wallet.dat file is located in the ~/Library/Application Support/Lytix directory. Stop any running clients and select the lytix-1.7.3-osx-unsigned.dmg disk image. Open the image and copy the Lytix binary to the Applications folder. If it does not run at start you may have to go into the Utilities/Security & Privacy setting and click on run the Lytix binary anyway. The client should start to load and synchronize at that moment.

Linux: Before you begin copy your wallet.dat to a safe location. The wallet.dat file is normally located in ~/.lytix/wallet.dat. Stop any running clients and select the proper binary for your distribution. Untar and unzip the binary and simply copy them over to the /usr/local/ directory as sudo cp -r lytix-1.7.3/* /usr/local Start the qt wallet by running lytix-qt or the daemon by running lytixd.

How to Upgrade Masternodes

Upgrade the client wallet first that holds you masternode.conf configuration using the procedures above in How to Upgrade Wallets.

Once completed go to the masternode and stop the daemon. Upgrade following the method described above. Restart the daemon. It may be necessary to re-activate the masternode. If the masternode goes missing simply go to the client wallet and re-activate the missing masternode.
