Upgrading to the latest Dash Core v0.16.1.0

Below is the step-by-step procedure for updating your Dash core to the latest version.

–  Shut down the older version if its still running. Wait for it to completely shut down. This might take a few minutes for older versions.
–  Run the installer (if you are using windows) Or just copy over /Application/Dash-Qt (if you are a Mac user) Or dashd/Dash-qt (for Linux users)
–  Simple isn’t it?? YES

NB- when upgrading a versions below 0.13 or after DIP0003 upgrade you will have to reindex (start with reindex-chainstate or –reindex). This is to make sure your wallet has all the new data synchronized, also upgrading from version 0.13 should not require any additional action.

– When upgrading from a version prior to 0.14.0.3, the initial startup of dash core will run a migration process which can take a few minutes to finish.

Downgrade alert !! (Must Read!🚨)

– Downgrading to a version older than 0.14.0.3 is no longer supported due to a change in the “evodb” database format, therefore you will need to use an older version and you must either reindex or re-synch the whole chain.

– Downgrading of masternode will result to punishment/banning of outdated masternodes. Therefore downgrading is not recommended.
