Bulwark Core 188.8.131.52 Mandatory Update
Bulwark 184.108.40.206 is a mandatory update to address a potential future issue with new staking requirements once the staking requirements spork is activated. The spork is not active at this time, will be at a later date after amble time has been given to update, this is a preventative measure.
How to Update
As always, it is recommended to backup the existing wallet.dat file to a safe location before upgrading if you haven’t done so already via File -> Backup wallet and saving it in a different directory with a new name. If you use CLI/Linux, you can backup using the command ./bulwark-cli backupwallet. If your wallet is not running currently, you can back up the file “wallet.dat” from e.g. Start -> Run -> %APPDATA%\Bulwark on Windows by making a copy elsewhere.
Gracefully exit/stop the current wallet from the wallet. (File - Exit or ./bulwark-cli stop)
Download and install the new wallet appropriate for your OS.
Linux/Rpi: Overwrite the existing executable files with the newly downloaded wallet binaries.
Windows: Install via the setup executable file and run through the setup wizard to install.
Mac OSX: Download .dmg file, open .dmg then drag bulwark icon to the applications folder icon. (copy over /Applications/bulwark-Qt)
Re-start the wallet. (Launch from your Bulwark shortcut icon or ./bulwarkd for linux)
Once the wallet finishes syncing
- Update to stake consensus requirements
- Remove extra debug log entry
- Update to v220.127.116.11
- Minor format change
