Pactus 0.11.0 released


Pactus Blockchain Version 0.11.0 is now available for download. This release includes a graphical user interface (GUI) that is suitable for both beginners and experienced users. It also includes a command-line interface (CLI) for advanced users and wallet software that allows users to interact with the blockchain without the need to sync the entire blockchain.


The main update in this version is the fix for the relay connection issue. A relay is a peer in the network that facilitates the connection between two peers, particularly when they are using home internet.

Another significant update is that sending a Bond transaction is now more user-friendly. Users no longer need to set the validator public key if they want to bond Test PAC coins to their validators.

Bond transaction dialog


This version has been implemented for Testnet-1 and is being prepared for the upcoming Mainnet launch. To start using Pactus Blockchain Testnet-1, download the latest version from the download page and join the Testnet.
