Hello Polis Community.
As you may know, there have been many issues with the 1.4.13 update, which attempted to change from PoS v2 to PoS v3 to improve our blockchain security vulnerability.
We are actively working on a fix, so please wait for a new announcement and stop all attempts to get your nodes synced, they will likely get forked.
We truly understand and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused among our valued community, expect an announcement soon.

Hello Polis Community.
We release the new wallet v1.4.14, to get synced to the network you need to redownload the blockchain or reindex
Make sure you are synced with the blockchains explorers: https://insight.polispay.org/.
Since last Sunday the Polis network forked to the v03 of PeerCoin proof-of-stake protocol including an important security validation to prevent fake weights and precomputing blocks.
Unfortunately, the whole network followed a wrong chain because of some misconfigurations of the Polis Core Wallet, leaving the correct network on block 346035 for some days. We catch up the chain and it is moving again.
The version 1.4.14 includes patches to catch the correct network and get your wallets right into that version without using a bootstrap.
To sync to the network please use de new wallet: https://github.com/polispay/polis/releases/tag/v1.4.14
To get the correct blockchain information you need to use the Rebuild Index function
Masternode restart is required
Make sure you are in sync with the explorers https://insight.polispay.org/
Please make sure you don’t forget that: The Polis Core or the Polis Support team will never DM you to help.
Also, we want to extend a sincerely apologize for the issues these days.

Hello Polis Community.
We have been working a lot with the help of some community members. Seems that the current chain (https://insight.polispay.org/) is a little bit hard to sync for some users.
We are doing everything we can to create a version that catches easily with the latest block. On the meantime you can try using the “Rebuild Index” option on the Polis-Qt or starting the daemon with polisd -reindex to recalculate the database. Alternatively, you can redownload the blockchain using connect=(PUT-IP-HERE) on your polis.conf and choosing JUST ONE of the following IP:

Later this week we will have another update. We’re on the last stages of testing. We really appreciate your patience. We’re dedicated on bringing you the best product we can make and we take the time to make it perfect for all of you.
