We have some more news from VeriCoin, and it is good news for anyone involved with this digital currency. After we talked about how the developers advised users not to move coins around (click here), the new wallet is finally here!
Installation instruction for all platforms are basically the same : remove anything that has to with VeriCoin except your wallet.dat file, download the new client and let it sync with the blockchain. The whole process will take 30-60 minutes though, so don’t panic if it seems to be idling, it really isn’t.
We have copied the installation instructions below :
Backup your wallet.dat first before proceeding, it’s location is listed below for your system.
We recommend uninstalling old VeriCoin program in remove programs control panel, then deleting everything but wallet.dat in your usernameappdataroamingVeriCoin folder and running the default installer settings. This will load up the full block and you will be on the splash screen for 30-60 minutes while it loads the blockchain data.
We recommend deleting everything but wallet.dat from user/library/applicationsupport/vericoin and putting these two files in this directory as well: http://www.vericoin.info/downloads/vericoin.conf http://www.vericoin.info/downloads/bootstrap.dat
You will sit at the splash screen for 30-60 minutes while the whole blockchain loads up.
We recommend deleting everything from .vericoin but wallet.dat, putting these two files in this directory as well: http://www.vericoin.info/downloads/vericoin.confhttp://www.vericoin.info/downloads/bootstrap.dat
Install necessary dependencies if you haven’t already. (Debian)
