11/18 - Hybrid Consensus Updates

Announcements :speaker:

:warning: PAI Coin 2.1.0 is here! UPDATE TODAY. :warning:

:rotating_light: If you are running a full node, solo staking, and/or solo mining, you must immediately update to 2.1.0. :rotating_light:

To update, execute the following commands in the paicoin directory of your full node.

paicoin-cli stop  # stop the node from currently running
git pull  # pull the latest changes from the paicoin repo
git checkout 2.1.0  # switch to the latest release
make clean  # uninstall your previous build
make  # compile the new release
sudo make install  # install at the system level
paicoind  # restart your node

:point_up:For ALL solo stakers: Make sure your node is online and voting! :point_up:

Execute this script on your staking node.

Hereโ€™s how:

  1. Download the script from here .
  2. Either:
  3. Upload the script to the full node you use for staking, or;
  4. Copy and paste its contents into a new file on the full node named voter_check.py
  5. Run the following commands to execute the script with the correct dependencies (these commands assume that voter_check.py and your paicoin directory are both located in your user home directory (~), and that your user home directory is your present working directory, pwd):
sudo apt install python3

cd paicoin
sudo make install
cd โ€ฅ
python3 voter_check.py
