    PIVX Core Wallet 4.1.0 Release (May/7/2020)

    Best way is to install and setup a brand new 4.1.1 wallet, sync from scratch, then once synced up, close it, replace the empty wallet.dat with your old wallet.dat file (always keep another copy as backup), then re-launch the 4.1.1 wallet. If all else fails, please ask for assistance in our PIVX...

    PIVX Cold Staking

    That would actually be interesting as in theory, you could have more than 1 staking nodes for a single set of UTXOs. I assume that will work if you run the same wallet.dat that has generated the same stakerAddr on multiple nodes?

    PIVX Cold Staking

    I expect this cold staking feature to not cause any extra centralization in the network as it is far easier to setup & maintain than a masternode. (especially if you have more than 10k PIV) This will in turn make people just setup their own cold staking node (as they only just need 1) instead of...

    PIVX Cold Staking

    Wouldn't the movement just be determined by market forces based on profitability? I doubt that will change. As for the reward structure change, either don't change it (in order to maintain 30%+ vote rate of over 500 votes) or flip the 3:2 to 2:3 to increase the pool of stakers. Though, this does...
