Netcoin mandatory update 2.5

NETCOIN MANDATORY UPDATE: V2.5

Hey NETheads!

Here it is, v2.5 has arrived!! Not something we wanted to do but for PoW to continue, and for the core upgrade it had to be done. Also we don't want to be a PoS only coin, so we decided to keep it going. It's something we feel is good in a coin security wise and for the dedicated miners that have supported Netcoin's NETwork and because people still do mine it traditionally. That said we have continued on our PoW to a static reward of 15 coins per block and sorry to say, but the hourly 8x superblocks have been discontinued.   Also PoS rewards for PIR year 3 are changed to 2-4-6-7-8-10% because with these market volumes it could never sustain the current reward settings.

v2.3.0 and v2.3.1 users will need to backup of course, and save your wallet.dat file in a handy spot then clean the AppData>Roaming>NetCoin folder and start the new v2.5 from scratch. Once synced, you can then shutdown and replace the wallet.dat and restart the wallet.

If any of you updated to the last 2.4 or v2.4, sorry but you'll also need to start from a fresh clean appdata>roaming>NetCoin folder

Any questions just ask :)

Go NET!

My wallet is crashing when trying to stake. Happens straight after unlocking. Is this a known issue? I redownloaded the entire blockchain took a day and a bit on the 2.5

v2.5.1 MANDATORY release next Friday OCT 14th a new update that will disconnect all the old nodes including the 2.5 so it will be a mandatory update again. I recommend to shutdown the wallet on Thursday already or atleast before the release Friday otherwise a resync is needed again.

More details to follow soon

Why in hell didn't the message get out the all the others to upgrade, like other coin do DEM for example.

Now you got a lot of 2.3.1 and then 2.5 then 2.5.1

You got to tell the 2.3.1 that they need to upgrade...

I wonder if the pools and exchanges got a notice, I hope...

I missed the point to shut down early enough. Iwas using 2.5 until now. But now nothing is moving in my 2.5.1 wallet. Please give a step by step tutorial how to cleanup and resync without loosing my coins

thanks in advance
