f(x)Core Network Upgrades

For more information on past upgrades and instructions, refer to Upgrade Versions.

You may refer to this Countdown Timer which will countdown the time till the upgrade height.

Upgrade steps

  1. Ensure you have stopped the docker container to stop node❗

docker stop fxcore
docker rm fxcore

*fxcore is a container name, change the container name according to your setup

2. Pull latest docker images

docker pull

3. Update config files

docker run --rm -v $HOME/.fxcore:/root/.fxcore config update

4. Restart docker container to start the node:

docker run --name fxcore -d --restart=always -p -p -p -p -p -p -v $HOME/.fxcore:/root/.fxcore start

To check if fxcore is synced:

curl localhost:26657/status

To ensure that the blocks are synced up with your node, under "sync_info", "catching_up value" should be false "catching_up value": false. This may take a few hours and your node has to be fully synced up before proceeding to the next step. You may cross reference the latest block you are synced to "sync_info": "latest_block_height" and the latest block height of our Testnet blockchain on our Testnet blockchain explorer or our Mainnet.

Make sure that every node has a unique priv_validator.json. Do not copy the priv_validator.json from an old node to multiple new nodes. Running two nodes with the same priv_validator.json will cause you to double sign.
