> Hi @Beta Testers ! V21DB2 is here and marks the start of a new beta network!
> With the current network having grown to not less than 21 million blocks, for the most part thanks to @Json wink , this release has set a new genesis so everyone will have to do the following:
> - Stop the node, delete rocksdb/* and/or data.ldb* . Do not delete wallet.ldb
> - Switch back to LMDB. This allows more consistent saturation testing. Please take a few seconds to switch back by changing the [node.rocksdb] enable config value in config-node.toml . Either set this to false or delete the line
> - Run the new node
> - Your representative should be setup as before, no further action required
> - (Optional) If you don't run one yet, the Node monitor ( https://github.com/NanoTools/nanoNodeMonitor ) is extremely helpful for beta testing.
> Then, let @Json know and he'll add your IP to the list that shows up on https://beta.nanoticker.info , which is basically my homepage now.
> You should immediately see at least 3 peers and 2 blocks (genesis + epoch upgrade).
> We'll give everyone some time to upgrade before starting the weight distribution. Please let us know once you have upgraded.
> This release does not yet include @Srayman's network proposal implementation, as we want to first establish a baseline for metrics.
> We're excited to bring some new features into beta network in the next weeks through a series of DBs. If you like beta testing, then you beta get excited! nanoshape01
