How to Upgrade

While the upgrade process normally does not touch the “wallet.dat” file, it is good practice to make a backup of your wallet file prior to any upgrade or downgrade operations. A simple backup can be performed using the File -> Backup… option to export a copy of the wallet file to a safe location.

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Reddcoin-Qt (on Mac) or reddcoind/reddcoin-qt (on Linux).

Step by step instructions on how to upgrade:


  • Open Reddcoin Core on your computer and make a backup of your wallet. This is really important, if something goes wrong you can always recover your coins.
    You can do this via File -> Backup Wallet… (Screenshot.)


  • Make sure you have a backup.
    If you need help with this, let me know.


  • Make a mental note of your total balance.


  • Exit/close the software, make sure Reddcoin Core is not running.



  • After installation, run Reddcoin Core. Check if the balance is as you expect.
    If not, let me know.


  • Start staking.

It’s absolutely critical for V2 wallets to upgrade. If you are currently restoring your V2 wallet and waiting on sync to finish, please consider shutting it down, upgrading after you made sure your wallet.dat file is in a safe place and continue to sync. When a V2 wallet syncs and stakes, it is pushing consensus back further then what is needed for us to move forward with a MUCH higher staking amounts under the upcoming POSV2.
