NKN Testnet v0.8.4-alpha Release

We released a new version v0.8.4-alpha. This version limits max number of inputs/outputs in one transfer transaction (this will not be a problem in v0.9 because we no longer use UTXO model in v0.9).

This is an incompatible upgrade, so upgrade is required.

  • If you are using one-click on DO/AWS/Google Cloud or one-click GUI, you don’t need to do anything.
  • If you downloaded the release version, you just need to download it again https://github.com/nknorg/nkn/releases , replace your nknd and nknc and run again
  • If you build from scratch, you just need to do the build again.
  • If you are using some scripts or tutorials that has auto-updator, then it should be automatic if the auto-updator is working properly.

The old version is deprecated to accelerate the upgrade process.

You probably don’t need to download the Chain snapshot manually, but if you really need, you can use https://testnet.nkn.org/Chain_latest.zip .

To update to the new version, please stop your nknd, rebuild (or download the latest binary from https://github.com/nknorg/nkn/releases ), and then restart. If you are using the GUI miner or auto-updater, then you just need to stop and restart and miner and it will upgrade automatically.
