Dear Members:

NULS test-net v1.1.3-beta will be launched at 17:30 on Oct 18th (GMT+8). In order to fully test the security, stability and user experience of the NULS test-net, all test-net nodes and client wallets are requested to upgrade to the new version as soon as possible. The test-net will switch to the new protocol after the percentage of consensus nodes with upgraded wallets reaches 90% and the height of the test-net increases another 10,000 blocks. Then, the test-net can broadcast new transaction types and launch smart contracts. After that we will release the first DApp based on the NULS smart contract — the community voting tool.

Reasons for Upgrade:

1. We optimized the node statistical logic of v1.1.2-beta, and fixed the bug that non-forging nodes had an impact on the statistical results of this round.

2. Tested the scenario of simultaneously upgrading multiple versions to deal with the crisis situation where the main-net may need rapid upgrade in the future.

3. Optimized the base-level smart contracts to add support for BigDecimal.

Steps:

1. Upgrade online if you’re using test-net wallet v1.1.2-beta, or download the latest version in GitHub HERE.

2. Unzip the files to your local directory;

3. Stop previous versions of the test-net wallet;

4. Start the test-net wallet v1.1.3-beta.

How to Get Test Tokens:

  1. Go to the test-net web wallet page: testnet.wallet.nuls.io;

2. Click the [testnet NULS] button at the top to enter the application page;

3. Fill in your test-net wallet address in the box, click Apply, and test tokens will be transferred to your account.

The first 100 addresses will each get 30,000 NULS test tokens, and 5,000 test tokens for each address afterwards. If you need more tokens to do the test, please go to the community forum to apply: HERE

Note: The test environment will be active for a long period of time, so test tokens are long-term effective. The NULS team is unable to give out test tokens freely, so please keep your test-net private key safe to avoid losing any test tokens. Please keep in mind that the NULS test tokens are used only for testing, thus having no extra value elsewhere.

Thanks for your support!

Your NULS team
