We want to thank the community for giving us feedback that have lead to this update. We welcome you all to keep giving feedback so we can keep improving and maintain our high standards.
We have updated our Stratis Wallet to version 188.8.131.52. This update includes our new logo and a better first time connection. We advise you to update your Stratis Wallet to the new version. For new users of the Stratis Wallet we would like you to take a look at our Wallet Instructions before your start. These instructions will guide you through setting up your wallet step by step. Our Stratis Wallet is available for Mac OS and Windows.
Before you update always close your existing wallet if it’s open and then run the new wallet. This wallet will overwrite your existing wallet version. It’s also a nice opportunity to make a new backup of your wallet.dat file in order to keep your wallet safe. We recommend you to backup your wallet on a regular basis.
We’ve noticed that there are still some of you that are using the old 1.2.2 wallet. We urgently ask you to update your Stratis wallet to version 184.108.40.206. People that are running the old wallet are on the old chain. Any stake rewards you received on the old chain after we’ve switched to our new chain will be lost. You will start to receive staking rewards again once you have updated and resynched. It’s essential that you re-synchronize the blockchain after you have updated to version 220.127.116.11. Make sure to make a copy of your wallet.dat file before you begin the process. If you need help with the process please join us on Slack and ask for help in the #support channel.
With the Stratis Wallet you have the possibility to stake your $STRAT. By staking your coins you help to secure the network and in return you get Stratis rewards. The inflation over a year is 1%. A good measure of the amount of rewards you can get is by moving your mouse onto the lightning symbol in your Stratis Wallet.
And last but not least we want to remind you on the following things:
- If you aren’t a member of our community on Discord we hereby invite you to join us.
- If you still have unclaimed Stratis coins, now is the time to claim them.
Keep your $STRAT safe, secure and stake away :).
