v1.1.2 - UI Overhaul
Significant UI updates across almost all aspects of the wallet. New logo and type integrated Artwork behind logo swaps to a random variation each time the wallet is launched
Mandatory update v1.1.0 available
PLEASE update prior to block 29,000.
Local wallets AND masternode vps's must be updated.
The Rapture wallet has been updated to version 1.1.0 and includes a change to the proof-of-work/masternode ratio starting at block 29,000.
Rapture digital currency is a highly secure and flexible method of payment that furthers the economic strength of the community itself. With no connection to the manipulation and corruption of the global banking and financial cartels, Rapture provides a way for believers to store value, exchange value, transact, and spread the word to the masses.
Rapture has three core goals:
• To provide secure blockchain technology leveraged by believers
• To create a built-in market for tract and gift sales, which gives believes a platform for spreading their message while increasing value to the currency
• To serve as a convenient method of payment among believers, which increases the community grant fund for outreach and missionary programs
Rapture implements masternodes that provide serveral important functions to the network. For the network services they provide, a random Masternode on the network is selected for each block and awarded ~80% of the block subsidy.
Masternodes MUST be run on a separate server with a hot/cold wallet setup. Most users will opt to use a VPS service with an Ubuntu 16.04 server such as Amazon EC2, Google Cloud Compute, or Vultr. Masternodes can not be operated from a local wallet as it is unsecure and a liability to have an unlocked and unecrypted local wallet...therfore, this functionality is blocked at a source code level.
Masternodes also require sentinel ( https://github.com/RaptureCore/sentinel ).
We have two comprehensive masternode guides available now that can be used for the setup and configuration of Rapture masternodes using a Linux VPS to host the node (currently a requirement).
The first guide goes through a hot/cold wallet setup using Vultr as a VPS service (they've been a decent choice with Linux VPS's available for $2.50/month). This guide also has a Troubleshooting section that is continually being added to:
The second guide is from Discord community member @birty#9460 (thanks birty!) and is focused on a setup with Time4VPS (another popular VPS option):
