Edit: While we are in alpha please check regularly for new updates! You should not have to resync any of your data. The update is just a few minor bug fixes and you can swap the new extracted files in place of the old ones.
I’m thrilled to announce that our development team has released the alpha version of Dero’s golang implementation for public testing! The following is a post written directly by Captain!
DERO GOLANG CRYPTONOTE ALPHA IMPLEMENTATION
Choose OS and download pre-built binary, Extract and run derod.
DERO Blockchain, wallet data directory and files will be created in current directory.
No need to stop existing DERO, New DERO uses different ports and file locations.
No clashes with OLD software.
POOL Operators stick with OLD version till next update.
Pls visit slack or forum for any issues.
In addition, we’re very excited to announce that the new wallet has a built-in RPC server which is currently available for limited testing!
I also wanted to add that while the current version of golang is backward compatible with the old version of the CryptoNote protocol (Helium Hydra), this is very likely to be dropped in the next release. Had our developers not written this compatibility in the golang implementation the release would have been done soon. This helps to demonstrate the technical knowledge and capabilities of our developers. Future developers, please note this.
