We have a mandatory update which will change the operating ports from 4001 and 4002 to 9030 and 9031. We have already updated all genesis delegates with the new code and to prevent any missed blocks we urge you to update your code before block 260,000, which is when the port switch will automatically trigger! We highly suggest you watch your delegate during this time. We don’t expect any problems however it’s always best to be cautious.
We have created an update script to make this update easy for you. Simply clone the script into your home folder, cd into the directory run chmod +x to make it executable and the execute ./Blockpool Node Update Script.sh
The process should take at most a few seconds.
You can also find the update guide here: https://github.com/blockpool-io/Blockpool-Node-Update-Script
You can also manually update it if you wish.
The updated code for the BPL Node can be found here: https://github.com/blockpool-io/BPL-node
On top of the port change this update also includes a fix for pool rewards. It was found that pools with over 4-5 votes would receive odd reward values. This has been fixed and verified already as working. If you run a pool it’s important you update ASAP.
