Qtum Core

Qtum core updates normally consist of Qtum Improvement Protocols. These QIPs are generated by both our developers and the community and in some cases requests from enterprise users. Our developers evaluate the impact of each QIP and work on high priority QIPs. All bug fixes and feature enhancements that have been issued to the core project will be listed here.

  • Testing QIP-5,6,7,9;
  • Release a configurable alert mechanism for the main network
  • Version v0.17.5 release
  • Fixed a bug introduced in 0.17.4 that caused some nodes not to be able to properly reorg when receiving a duplicate stake block
  • Added a recent checkpoint
  • Fixed gitian script filename in gitian build docs
  • Configuring Qtum to run on a rasp Zero W (which has an armv6 CPU)
