  • Here are the important announcements made this week:

PolisCore v1.4.15 Release
Hello @everyone.
After a lot of testing, we are releasing the v1.4.15 PolisCore wallet that solves the sync issues with the new Proof-of-Stake protocol.
Download the new wallets on your local and VPS to update and sync to the last block on https://insight.polispay.org/ and https://explorer.polispay.org/
TAR: https://github.com/polispay/polis/releases/download/v1.4.15/bootstrap.tar.gz
ZIP: https://github.com/polispay/polis/releases/download/v1.4.15/bootstrap.zip
The update is Mandatory and it will require Masternode Restart
If you are having any issue with sync, please remove the blocks/ and chainstate/ folders and peers.dat file on the PolisCore main folder. There is no need for special peers or addnodes, the wallet should sync by itself.
We will let the network to stabilize a couple of days and then we will open markets
We want to extend a sincere apology to everyone that lost a lot of hours trying to sync their nodes, but this upgrade was really necessary for the network. Currently, we are working successfully on the full POSv3 protocol.
Also, I want to personally extend my gratitude to @Hans (no DM!) @Thomas - Evolbyte (no DM) @Tom - Crypto Sharks (no DM) @Bronepoezdec @kudin28 @Tomflex @KaiAlex (no Expert) @Mr Peralta (Dynx.io) and @Baller for giving us a lot of hours on support, compiling, testing and suggesting, we all need to thank them to make this community one of the best.
