In preparation for the upgrade to PoS 3.0, currently scheduled for January 21st, a required update to both the QT Wallet and BitBay Client have been released. Your updated QT Wallet and BitBay Client will be seamlessly integrated with the Proof of Stake 3.0 upgrade on the 21st.
Download the required update for your Windows, Mac, or Linux system by visiting the BitBay.Market Download page. The Blockchain download (bootstrap) can be found there also.
A Windows walkthrough for the QT Wallet, including incorporating the latest blockchain, can be seen below.
Setting up your router with Port Forwarding (port 19914) will increase your node count and improve your connection. Your router may already automatically open the port using uPnP (universal plug and play), but if not, here are some instructions to walk you through the process.
Or, search for your specific router manufacturer on YouTube.
BitBay is always excited when an important new update is released, and we have more planned in the future. Please join the community on BitBay Slack!
