Update of Unit-e Alpha TestnetΒΆ

Published on 2019-06-06 15:00:00

On June 7 2019 there will be a reset of the alpha testnet as part of a scheduled maintenance update after running it for more than half a million blocks. The update will bring the nodes run by the Unit-e development team to the latest version of the code and start a fresh blockchain.

The update contains some changes which are not compatible with older versions, in particular the 0.1.0 version. If you have been running a node paticipating in the testnet you need to check out the latest version of the testnet branch and recompile your client. Remove the unit-e data directory before starting the client to get the new testnet blockchain.

See the Testnet documentation for general instructions how to participate in the testnet. The testnet still is at an early stage. It will gradually be ramped up to provide more features and might be reset to incorporate changes which are not backwards compatible in the future as well.
