Zcoin (French Drop) Upgrade Guide

Here’s a quick step-by-step guide to get your Znode up and running with the latest version in a few minutes. This guide assumes you are upgrading from a 0.13.4.x version to If you are upgrading from or, please adjust the paths in step 4 accordingly.

    1. Log on to your Znode
    2. Copy a link to the Linux archive from GitHub or Bitbucket by right-clicking the file name (zcoin-qt- and selecting the copy link menu item in your browser
    3. On the Znode’s command line, type “wget” and insert the copied link after it like so: wget https://github.com/zcoinofficial/zcoin/releases/download/v0.13.5.7/zcoin-qt- This will download the archive to your Znode
    4. Stop the zcoin daemon
      cd ~/zcoin-0.13.4/bin
      ./zcoin-cli stop
      and remove the old version
      cd ~
      rm -rv zcoin-0.13.4
    5. Unpack the downloaded archive by typing
      tar xvzf zcoin-qt-
    6. Now you can start your Znode again
      cd ~/zcoin-0.13.5/bin
      ./zcoind -daemon

When upgrading from a 0.13.4.x version your Znode will go through a mandatory reindex upon the first start of the daemon. You can follow the process by periodically checking the output of ./zcoin-cli getinfo and wait till it shows the current block or wait till ./zcoin-cli znsync status shows the status “ZNODE_SYNC_FINISHED”.
