Update: nOS Core 2.8.0 - Decentralized Validator Profiles

Update instructions

Log in to your node.

If you had any custom plug-ins installed, copy their configurations from ~/.config/nos-core/realdevnet/plugins.js into a temporary file on your desktop.

Since other plugin configurations will change, make sure you only copy configurations for your own custom plugins, and not any core packages.

Run the following:

ccontrol stop
ccontrol update self && ccontrol update core
ccontrol config reset
ccontrol secret set [your validator secret here]

Replace [your secret here] with your validator secret.

You can now paste back any plugin configurations you previously saved in plugins.js.

Start your forging node with ccontrol start all or your relay node with ccontrol start relay

Changes

Validator Profiles

nOS Core 2.8.0 introduces decentralized validator profiles, powered by IPFS.

As a validator, you can now set a description and a logo by clicking on your own validator username.

All nodes will host the active validators’ logos and descriptions on IPFS, ensuring data availability.

Your profile details will be displayed in the wallet and block explorer.

Vendor Field Removal

The Vendor Field currently serves no critical use case for the network, so we have decided to disable it. By disabling the Vendor Field, individual transactions are now smaller and faster to process. Any scripts and plug-ins that attach a Vendor Field to a transaction will need to remove it to ensure that their transaction is accepted.
