Ok, I'm still on 15.02 from before the address change. I'm currently mining on yiimp.eu to my address.
If I now update my wallet, my public address will be changed to the new format, but will I still receive the coins from mining?

Is there anything else I have to keep in mind when upgrading?

you should join: https://t.me/bitcore_btx_official
devs very active in there

Thanks, but I think this might also be important for other users. And since this thread is pretty active, I'd like to get an answer here.

Please note that the private keys are in no way affected by this change.[/b] Any private key is fully compatible with both the old formatting as well as the new one.
---snip---
The new wallet, supporting the new format only, is still in beta mode but can be download and tested via the official github:
---snip---
We also want to inform you that there's no rush to update, we set a timeframe of 3 months in which we want to complete the transition. After this period bitcore core 0.16 will be released which will only use the new public keys.
old/new format = old/new public address, correct?
I probably misunderstood the notion of 'public keys', so I would like to ask this
the last part you mentioned new public keys... (not public address)
what would happen with unclaimed airdrop in old format public address with old public key?
am I right on this? private key >> public key >> public key hash (public address)
if new public key used, would it affect our abilities to spend utxo in old public address?

Bitcore Core (bitcore-qt) will not allow it. So basically, when you have the new wallet installed supporting 2xxx addresses and you want to send to a 1xxx, it simply won't let you finish the transaction. This is also true vis versa from old Bitcore core to the new one.
http://btx.elitehash.net is still running the old wallet format. I'm at a loss now, how are pools supposed to upgrade? Or exchanges for that matter... Everyone is still using the old version, what are we supposed to do?
since no changes has been done to blockchain,
would it be possible and safe to have 2 core wallets in my pc and run 1 at a time based on needs
both versions (old and new) would point to the same blockchain data directory
when I need to do transaction to old address, I will run thru old version wallet
when I need to do transaction to new address (2..., s..., btx... ), I will run thru new version wallet

A lot of incomprehensible things I hope will bring clarity because the project is really interesting and if it does not work out very badly. So far, everything is like it, but these little things can frighten newcomers.

Doesn't matter because the BTX project and coin is dead.


What substance do you smoke? Huh I want it as well!  Wink Cheesy

That's a very nice graphics. My question to that though is what would happen to fees should BTX have the same volume of transactions as those other coins? Or is this graphics already taking volumes into account?

Can I upgrade my wallet in the future, like 1-2 years from today?

I am a long term holder, I've been holding for over 6 months, I have not open since the day I created it and added bitcore funds to it. I only check my balance when needed via https://chainz.cryptoid.info/btx/ knowing it's still there  Tongue and recently I checked my converted address since the old address is empty.

Thanks all in advance  Cool

That should not be a problem, but this is important update so it would be wise to see that you actually made to convert your old address while this subject is fresh and you have someone to ask if you run into problems.

Yes. You need to change the P2P Port and the RPC Port for one of your wallets in the bitcore.conf file, like:
Code:
#bitcore.conf 1
port=8555
rpcport=18555

#bitcore.conf 2
port=8556
rpcport=19555

Also, while starting those wallets you want to specify what the Data Directory for those wallet has to be, like:
Code:
#Wallet one:
$ bitcore-qt -datadir=/home/user/.bitcoredata1

#Wallet two:
$ bitcore-qt -datadir=/home/user/.bitcoredata2

You can save the custom configure files in those Data Directories, when you launch those wallets it will read the bitcore.conf from the custom Data Directories.

Finally, the developers heard us, appeared something working, the new wallet is synchronized very quickly in light mode. I'm waiting for the final version.

So I recognized that the blockchain explorer
https://chainz.cryptoid.info/btx/address.dws?1xxx....
shows a zero balance on the old 1xxx address

when converting the old 1xxx address to the new BTX p2pkh address (2xxx) using the following URL
https://limxtec.github.io/btx-convert/

and then inserting that new address into the blockchain explorer, it shows the correct balance
https://chainz.cryptoid.info/btx/address.dws?2xxx....

this is independent whether you already upgraded your wallet to the new version.

As explained on https://bitcore.cc/important-update-bitcore-public-keys/, the private key does not change, regardless of the wallet version used.

We are all mid-term holders because none of us holds BTX since more than 3 years. Many of us will eventually become long-term holders in the year 2020.

As the BTX coins are "stored" in the blockchain and not really in your wallet, my take is that you could still upgrade your wallet software in 1-2 years, as long as you have your private keys.

So make sure you have a backup of that wallet.dat on a cold store (i.e. USB stick in bank safe), encrypt your desktop wallet, and write down that wallet encryption password (also place that one in bank safe).

Just to comfort people:

I upgraded my wallet to 0.15.1.0 and I did keep my wallet.dat
(I did not need to restore, upgrade was done using my existing wallet.dat)

As my exchange (Bit-Z) does not yet support the new public key format, I transferred some BTX from my exchange account to the old format 1xxx public key.

The expected amount (minus withdrawal fee) arrived in my QT BitCore BTX wallet Version 0.15.1.0 under the new public key format 2xxx. As verified in recent transaction list and blockchain explorer.

So for true hodlers, I see no reason why one should not upgrade to version 0.15.1.0, even if your exchange does not yet support the new address format.

Is anyone updated their wallet already?

Can someone tell me where can I find the private keys in the official wallet of bitcore? Because I didn't given with any private keys while I installed it.
