Reddcoin Core version 3.0.1 is now available from:

This is a new major version release of Reddcoin.
Previously, the original and subsequent versions of Reddcoin were taken from a fork of the Litecoin code base.

With the release of Reddcoin V2.0.0, the code was based directly from a fork Bitcoin. This allows for better source control and feature implementation from upstream changes into the future

With the release of Reddcoin V3.0.0, the PoSV stake reward has been improved to allow for a target 5% network growth

Upgrading to this release is strongly recommended and required.
Once a supermajority of 90% is reached, old wallets will no longer accept the new v5 blocks.

Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:

How to Upgrade

If you are running an older version of Reddcoin, shut it down.
Wait until it has completely shut down (which may take a few minutes for older versions).
Run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Reddcoin-Qt (on Mac) or reddcoind/reddcoin-qt (on Linux).

Start wallet

Notable changes

Core base code

Reddcoin v3.0.0 introduced an updated PoSV method to better distribute staking rewards and target a overall 5% network growth.

Staking and relay policy enhancements

To implement PoSV v2, Reddcoin Core's block templates are now for version 5 blocks only.
When PoSV v2 consensus (Supermajority 9000/10000) is reached, only v5 blocks will be accepted by the network.
This equates to approximately 90% of blocks being generated over 1 week period.

Blockchain Download

Blockchain data for both testnet and mainnet along with instructions can be downloaded from github.
