The Poseidon hardfork enables self custody BTC staking on Core blockchain.

The validators and full node operators on Core MainNet should switch their software version to v1.0.8 before 13th April.

How to Run

Please refer to https://docs.coredao.org/developer/become-a-validator/validators/core-full-nodes.

How to Upgrade

  • Download the appropriate version of Geth for your operating system.
  • Verify the checksum, e.g., for geth_linux.
    • Run sha256sum geth_linux
    • The result should match 8640c16780e6dbe2da74c2a215be91160491a30bcd495b0d0d5bbf551f6a22a8
  • Stop the old version of the Geth program.
  • Replace it with the new version.
  • Start the new version of the Geth program.
  • Verify that the new version is correct by checking the console output, such as instance=Geth/v1.0.8-26e9bfad/linux-amd64/go1.19.13.
  • Ensure that the node syncs up to the latest block successfully. For validators, confirm that the node can successfully produce blocks once elected.
