DAPS coin V1–0–5–8 Update

DAPS — Privacy Coin
3 min readMar 6, 2020

This version update is NOT mandatory.


If you already have a DAPS wallet — Do not reinstall your wallet!
Doing this could completely overwrite your wallet.dat file and if that happens (even if you use the same password) your wallet will be gone!

Also, ensure you regularly backup your wallet and have your recovery phrase written down and safely stored.

Upgrade Process << READ THIS CAREFULLY

The upgrade process should be done as follows if your wallet is running:

  1. Go to the settings screen.
  2. Backup your wallet.
  3. Close your wallet.

If your wallet is closed (not running) do the following:

Search for your wallet.dat file. Copy your wallet.dat file and paste it somewhere very safe. This step is very important!!

Steps to Upgrade DAPS QT Wallet


  • Replace the dapscoin-qt application with the new one that you have downloaded (copy and paste)
  • Start the dapscoin-qt wallet.
  • Once the wallet is fully synchronised, backup your wallet immediately.

At this point you may see one 1 of several scenarios:

  1. Wallet may begin resyncing with the chain.
  2. Wallet may require a rescan of the transactions.
  3. Wallet may detect a corrupt block database and require and a resync.
  4. Wallet may start up normally.
  5. If you had staking enabled and didn’t turn it off, staking may re-enable automatically. This may cause an auto-recombine. Please be patient and let the wallet do its work. Please remember that a transaction has to be 1 hour old in order for it to mature for staking. If your wallet says “Enabling Staking…” then that is what it is doing.

In all of these circumstances including a normal startup, give the wallet time to do what it needs to.

Under NO circumstances should you force stop the wallet AT ALL. Doing this could cause more issues.

It may seem like it is not responding, but the wallet has to go through every transaction in every block including the decoys in order to determine if a transaction was indeed for you.

If you are getting 0 connections, then please follow these steps and allow for some time between steps:

  1. Ask one of the admins for the dapscoin.conf edits for the connections.

Missing Masternodes

Please remember that if a rescan or resync takes place, your masternodes will seem like they have disappeared. They have not gone anywhere!

What has happened is that your wallet is not yet sync’d up to the block where they were created. Please give it some time.
