Step 1: Check if most recent version of Reddcoin Core is installed

Currently, the most recent version is: Reddcoin Core v3.10.4.

To check the version of your Reddcoin Core, follow these steps:

  • Open Reddcoin Core.

  • Open 'Debug window', via 'Help' (menu) → 'Debug window'.

  • The 'Debug window' appears on the screen, showing the 'Information' tab.
    Client version will tell you your Reddcoin Core version.

    It should be v3.10.4.

  • If your version is v3.10.4, you are running the most recent version. You don’t need to update.

    If your version is not v3.10.4 (and thus older), you should update Reddcoin Core.
    Continue with step 2 below.

Step 2: Backup

Always make a backup of your wallet first if you have any Reddcoins in your wallet. Do not skip this step.

You can read here how to make a backup.

Step 3: Update to most recent version

You should be able to start Reddcoin Core as you always did.
