QTUM update 0.17.3 now available

2019-04-15 | Qtum

Update 0.17.3 for Qtum is now available for the OmniStaker.

Make sure you have a backup of your wallet before updating. You can update your Qtum wallet by running the following command in your terminal:

sudo wget https://omnistaker.com/packages/update-qtum.sh && bash update-qtum.sh -q

New in this update is that there is a graphic user interface available for Qtum now. This means you don’t have to use the command line interface anymore. During the installation of this update you can decide if you want to use the graphic user interface or if you want to keep using the command line interface.

Please note:

You cannot run Qtum-QT and Qtum CLI at the same time. If you want to switch between them, please make sure you close the current one first.

  • Closing Qtum QT: click the X icon in the graphic user interface
  • Closing Qtum CLI: type qtum-cli stop in a terminal window
