Over the past few days, Firo and PIVX have both pushed consensus-changing core updates that aren't backward compatible. That means you must update your node as soon as possible, else your node(s) will become out of sync once their respective hardforks take place.

As such, we've made these core updates available to BasicSwap users, and you must update your node as soon as possible if you've enabled either or both of them.

Note: PIVX's 5.6.1 core update includes minor fixes from the mandatory 5.6.0 version.

To update coin cores on BasicSwap DEX, simply follow the instructions available here on the Particl Academy.

  • Shutdown BasicSwap properly and stop the Docker image.
  • From the basicswap folder, type the git pull command.
  • Type the relevant update command, depending whether you're running BasicSwap with or without Docker.

If you run BasicSwap on Linux without Docker, you can easily upgrade coin cores to their most recent version by running the community-built upgrade script available here (bsx-upgradecoins).

Alternatively, you can follow the tutorial video available on our Youtube channel here if you're running the Docker version of BasicSwap.
