What you can expect this week

We have two goals this week:

  • Validate the state of the RChain test net
  • Upgrade the RChain test net to RChain Node 0.6.4 (7d632567a616e6e63d4fca081191afae0a4d458d)


Prepare to participate

If you are a RChain test net validator, please have your node(s) running at the start of the session. DO NOT update your software

If you not a RChain test net validator you can operate a read-only node on the RChain test net:

  • Install and run RChain Node 0.6.4 (7d632567a616e6e63d4fca081191afae0a4d458d) (see installation information below)
  • Connect to the network via the RChain test net bootstrap node. RNode bootstrap addresses


Installation information

NOTE If you used a previous version of RNode, please delete your existing .rnode directory. Most errors experienced using RNode v0.6.1 relate to content in the directory from a previous version.

Please install RNode prior to the start of the testing session. If you have run RNode previously please see  CORE-961 Getting issue details... STATUS  and  CORE-963 Getting issue details... STATUS  for support for resolving issues you may experience preventing the successful running of RNode today.
