DAPS Coin V1.0.4 Update DAPS Updates and Upgrades

DAPS Coin V1.0.4 Update

DAPS Update 1.0.4

This version update is NOT mandatory.

Warning:
If you already have a DAPS wallet – Do not reinstall your wallet!

Doing this could completely overwrite your wallet.dat file and if that happens (even if you use the same password) your wallet will be gone!

Also, ensure you regularly backup your wallet and have your recovery phrase written down and safely stored.

Upgrade Process << READ THIS CAREFULLY

The upgrade process should be done as follows if your wallet is running:
  1. Go to the settings screen.
  2. Backup your wallet.
  3. Close your wallet.
If your wallet is closed (not running) do the following:

Search for your wallet.dat file. Copy your wallet.dat file and paste it somewhere very safe. This step is very important!!

Steps to Upgrade DAPS QT Wallet

 DO NOT REINSTALL YOUR WALLET AT ALL!!! DOING THIS COULD LOSE YOU ALL YOUR COINS 

  • Replace the dapscoin-qt application with the new one that you have downloaded (copy and paste)
  • Start the dapscoin-qt wallet.
  • Once the wallet is fully synchronised, backup your wallet immediately.

At this point you may see one 1 of several scenarios:

  1. Wallet may begin resyncing with the chain.
  2. Wallet may require a rescan of the transactions.
  3. Wallet may detect a corrupt block database and require and a resync.
  4. Wallet may start up normally.
  5. If you had staking enabled and didn’t turn it off, staking may re-enable automatically. This may cause an auto-recombine. Please be patient and let the wallet do its work. Please remember that a transaction has to be 1 hour old in order for it to mature for staking. If your wallet says “Enabling Staking…” then that is what it is doing.

In all of these circumstances including a normal startup, give the wallet time to do what it needs to.

Under NO circumstances should you force stop the wallet AT ALL. Doing this could cause more issues.

It may seem like it is not responding, but the wallet has to go through every transaction in every block including the decoys in order to determine if a transaction was indeed for you.

If you are getting 0 connections, then please follow these steps and allow for some time between steps:

  1. Press F1 and go to the console. Type clearbanned and press enter. – this clears your banned and allows you to connect to peers again.
  2. Ask one of the admins for the dapscoin.conf edits for the connections.

Missing Masternodes

Please remember that if a rescan or resync takes place, your masternodes will seem like they have disappeared. They have not gone anywhere!

What has happened is that your wallet is not yet sync’d up to the block where they were created. Please give it some time.

Qt & Daemon: Manually locking visually indicates that staking has also been stopped.

Qt: Increased size of the About screen for a more roomy layout.

Daemon: Refactor BOOST_FOREACH into c++

Daemon: Faster transactions; Better prioritization for selection of a transaction, allowing speedier inclusion into the next block.

Qt: Add warning text regarding scammers to the debug console’s default output.

Qt & Daemon: Significantly increases Initial Block Download performance by increasing LevelDB max_open_files.

Daemon: Linux binaries in the downloadable ZIP are now executable by default.

RPC: The rescanwallettransactions command is now flexible enough to start at any block, and go the rest of the way to the top of the chain.

Qt: Better use of vertical layout for low-resolution screens.

Qt: Improve tooltip help texts for better clarity.

Qt: Automatically rescan old transactions after using a mnemonic recovery phrase.

Qt: Move the unlock dialog pop-up window from the splash screen to the overview screen.

Daemon: Use block time for transaction time.

RPC: Re-enable the invalidateblock and reconsiderblock commands.

Qt: Improve error messages regarding insufficient reserve balance when sending while staking.

Daemon: Add more subdomains for additional seed nodes 6-10.

Daemon: Only choose decoys that have non-empty commitment.

Bugs Fixed

RPC: Fix RPCTimerInterface ordering issue which prevented automatic relocking.

Qt: Fix typo in description of Wallet Repair tab.

RPC: Fix the getchaintips crash.

Qt: Restored missing icon for the ‘block-explorer link’ menu item.

RPC: Fix gettransaction showing enormous transaction fees.

Daemon: Fix for an intermittent ungraceful exit due to deallocating memory from a non allocated pointer.

Qt: Fix for intermittent, silent crash with selection of decoys while constructing a new stealth transaction.

Please note: when enabling staking on this version a number of consolidation transactions will have to be done on your behalf. There can be a long waiting period between the time you enable staking to the time staking itself is actually enabled itself. These waiting periods will vary from wallet to wallet and can be anything from 5 minutes up to several hours.
