I'm prepping a new client version based on Bitcoin v11.2 and Forked from Myriadcoin.

 

This update will feature a Hard fork at block 2,422,000 to change coinbase maturity to 100. Everyone will need to upgrade, please help spread the word. Additionally, this update includes a soft fork for BIP65, OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY. You can read about it here https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0065.mediawiki

 

See this for additional release notes not specific to Argentum (up to version 11.2) https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/tree/master/doc/release-notes

 

Expect it this week.

Version 3.11.2

 

 

Pool operators, exchanges and block explorers can get a head start. I will release the binaries by tomorrow. If you would like to compile yourself, check out the gitian docs. I've updated the Gitian build scripts and dependencies (windows only right now.)

 

Notable changes for Argentum: Mandatory update

 

- Update the code base to Bitcoin version 11.2

- Hard fork for coinbase maturity at Block 2,422,000. New coinbase maturity will be 100 confirmations.

- Up to date Gitian build scripts and setup guide (Mac and Linux support coming soon)

- BIP65 Soft Fork when ~>78% of nodes have upgraded

- Minimum protocol version is 1050000

 

More to follow

 

Check out changes from Version 10 and 11.1 (BIP66 is already active in Argentum)


 

When compiling, make sure you are working from a fresh clone of https://github.com/argentumproject/argentum , do not do "git pull"

Argentum Version 3.11.2

Hi everyone, I'm happy to announce Argentum 4.14.2

If you build yourself, you will need to re-clone the git repo. Please see build instructions under /doc folder.

https://github.com/argentumproject/argentum/releases/tag/v4.14.2

You should notice a dramatic decrease in client load time. In my testing the client load time has decreased from 12-15 minutes to around 45 seconds. Your times will vary.

There will be a hard fork at block 2,977,000 to implement BIP146 transaction malleability fix. This should activate around March 13th.

These are just a few of the hundreds of enhancements with this new release. Check the release notes for additional information.

-BIP112 (CheckSequenceVerify) soft fork
-BIP146 as a hard fork
-Signature validation using libsecp256k1 (faster syncing)
-Direct headers announcement (BIP 130)
-Automatically use Tor hidden services
-Notifications through ZMQ
-BIP9 softfork deployment
-Linux ARM builds
-Compact Block support (BIP 152)
-Hierarchical Deterministic Key Generation (HD wallets)
  -You have to create a new wallet, this is a pretty decent guide https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/61024/how-do-i-migrate-my-bitcoin-core-wallet-to-an-hd-wallet

I plan to keep improving on the base client with performance and feature enhancements from here on out. I'm hoping to have Electrum released within the month.

We really need more miners. There's really no excuse to not mine Argentum as it's AUXPoW. Do our best to get more miners on board for better distribution and security of Argentum. 

If you notice an issue, please report it here, or https://github.com/argentumproject/argentum/issues

Slack is still online for ideas. PM me with your email for an invite.

I would like to re-emphasize the most exciting part

"Not only can users deposit/withdraw/exchange them on our platform, we're currently updating our payment gateway widget so that any merchants using our payment gateway has the option to use your cryptocurrency as a payment option!"

Soon merchants will be able to accept Argentum for payment. As far as I know, this is a FIRST for Argentum, and great news for Argentum supporters. 


Also, don't forget to upgrade to 4.14.3
