12/14 - Hybrid Consensus Updates

: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.

Here’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 …
    python3 voter_check.py

PAI Developer Updates :computer:

Here’s a snapshot :camera: of development work the team has been focused on:

  • [PAI Coin Core] Ongoing investigation into potentially erroneous balance reported by paicoin-cli for solo stakers;
    • added available_balance and legacy_balance to the getwalletinfo command response;
    • wrote comprehensive documentation on the different categories of PAI Coin balances in the full node CLI wallet (to be released)
  • [paichain.info] Investigated why the mempool on paichain.info is so large;
    • determined that paichain.info was not updated to expire transactions from its internal cache, thus causing paichain.info to continue to display previously expired stake voucher purchase transactions;
    • solution is processing and will be deployed this week
  • [PAI Coin Pool] preparing, validating and awarding promotional staking bonuses
  • [Catena NFT Art Marketplace] Improvements to the DM (direct message) functionality and design, added a thumbnail selection modal for the asset upload flow, added custom redirects for errors, enhanced the querying API for the homepage – to enable additional sorting options instead of just recent uploads, as well as pagination for the gallery.
