This optional release fixes initial blockchain sync issues. If you cannot sync your blockchain, the update is recommended.
To update and resync:
- close the wallet or stop the node
- remove blocks/, chainstate/ and peers.dat in the data directory
- update the release code
- start it and wait for full sync.
Make sure that your last block is the same as shown at https://explorer.sierracoin.net/
Masternode install script has been updated for this release.
For new installations after you rented a VPS with Ubuntu (versions 16.04, 17.10 or 18.04 are supported), you should have an IP address and root password. Connect to the server (use putty, kitty or other ssh client on Windows) as root@IP with the password given. Then copy/paste the following commands:
wget -N https://github.com/sierracoin-foundation/sierra/raw/master/contrib/masternodes/sierra_masternode_install.sh sudo bash sierra_masternode_install.sh
And follow directions.
