Wondering about the naming?

All coming hardforks will be named from a to z after train stations in Singapore, and the community will be able to vote on which ones to choose! Next up is the letter “b” — and for those wondering, here is a list of all train stations (read: possible hardfork names) in Singapore.

What you need to do

If you are just a regular DFI hodler, there is nothing you need to do.

If you are running your own masternode, this is how you can run the update:

Download and untar the relevant version to your operating system, run bin/defid or bin/defid.exe to start a DeFi Blockchain daemon. The client (CLI) can be found at bin/defi-cli or bin/defi-cli.exe.

You will have to reindex after the first upgrade to 1.2.0. To reindex, run defid -reindex.

App (GUI) users
If you are running the desktop app, you do not have to manually update the underlying node. Check for the latest releases.

Please report any issues to, or reach out to is via Telegram or Reddit.
