We are very excited to release our latest public pre-4.0 testnet wallet release that is setup to run on a separate segregated testnet to the main testnet chain. This release includes all the commits from the TESTNET_multi-pr_4.0 branch up to the date of this release and means that it has all the 4.0 proposed Proof of Stake consensus changes as well as Cold Staking enabled in the network.
- These binaries are intended for use ONLY on the PIVX testnet, and only as part of the pre-4.0.0 internal test phase.
- Testers should download the appropriate file for their system and extract it to a SEPARATE location from any release versions. Running the included
PIVX-Qtfile will automatically use the default
testnet4subdirectory, so there is no need to add
-testnetto any execution command.
- Windows installer packages are NOT included here so as to avoid potentially overwriting a pre-existing release version installation. Use the Windows zip files instead.
- To speed up the sync, you can download the testnet blockchain snapshot.
To gain some testnet coins, you can request for some via the PIVX Discord‘s #pivx_testnet channel. If you already have some testnet tPIV, then you can simply use your testnet wallet’s wallet.dat with this segregated testnet wallet to gain access to its coins. (they are on separate chains) There is a dedicated Segregated testnet’s block explorer available to check the status of transactions.
