** PLEASE UPDATE YOUR CLIENT TO 6.4.6 SOON AS POSSIBLE AT: **

To update your wallet please delete everything from the Worldcoin folder that stores your personal settings EXCEPT wallet.dat & the .conf file (if you have one).

I repeat - DO NOT DELETE WALLET.DAT

The worldcoin folder can be found in C:\Users\Yourusername\AppData\Roaming\worldcoin\ (windows 7)

You can access this hidden folder by typing %APPDATA% in the search box and clicking on Roaming then navigating to the worldcoin folder.

Ongoing list of known good nodes to use:
connect=74.121.190.25
162.243.74.110


[Windows]
Please visit www.worldcoinfoundation.org for the latest 6.4.6 download with all dependencies.

[Mac]
Please visit www.worldcoinfoundation.org for the download  (special thanks to Maxpower for assisting with this).

[Linux]
Currently only the windows client is compiled, for Linux users you can roll your own linux daemon: https://github.com/worldcoinproject/Worldcoin

Please go to the Worldcoin Foundation for all updates:
http://www.worldcoinfoundation.org/

On the 31st of October 2013 at 17:46:24 the Worldcoin blockchain was attacked to double spend Worldcoins that were earlier exchanged for BTC on MCX Now. The culprit who goes by the name of bazytw (transaction details and IP’s can be found here: http://pastebin.com/s6gMwLRg) logged into MCX Now earlier in the day and exchanged Bitcoin for 60000 Worldcoin.

Later the Worldcoin blockchain was 51% attacked and the Worldcoins were ‘double spent’.

Owing to the sophisticated design of the MCX Now transaction system the website was able to detect the attack and shut off in defense. As a result the owner of MCX Now and the Worldcoin team have been working hard over night to resolve this issue.

The Worldcoin foundation has confirmed that a rollback to before the attack will take place rendering the stolen coins useless. This means that all
Worldcoin wallet users, pools and exchanges need to update their client wallet as soon as possible to ensure they are running on the correct Blockchain.

The Worldcoin Foundation would like to thank members of MCX Now and The MCX Now owner for their support during this time.

WHAT THIS MEANS

Because the situation was picked up relatively quickly the team were able to work quickly to resolve this situation and issue an update to the wallet, but
it has also highlighted the necessity for early warning systems, and failsafes against 51% attacks. The foundation will be looking closely into providing
these systems to ensure the effect of an attack of this nature is greatly diminished in future, and is picked up more quickly. So, all in all, despite the
inconvenience this will cause to many users of Worldcoin, the attacker was thwarted and the network will now be improved which can only prove beneficial in
the long term.

Anyone having issues with the chain not fully syncing, please add this to your worldcoin.conf file:

addnode=74.121.190.25

use:

connect=74.121.190.25    instead for now

749534 is currently the right height.  You can see the correct height here (no login required, I'm not affiliated with this pool) http://wdc.vircurpool.com/index.php?page=statistics

if you are higher than this, your on the wrong chain.

Profit-Switching Pool w/ Vardiff -> http://hashco.ws  Optionally keep the alts we mine or auto-trade for BTC. In addition can be paid out in any of: 365, AC, BC,  BTC, C2, CINNI, COMM, FAC, HBN, MINT, PMC, QRK, RDD, WC, XBC
