Yesterday (July 31st) at around 7pm CEST, many nodes on the Crown network crashed.
The crash was caused by a bug (see below for detailed information regarding the bug).
After investigating, we implemented a hotfix and uploaded a new version: v0.12.5.1.
This is a high priority update!
To avoid your wallet crashing, we recommend all Crown community members update their wallet and nodes as soon as possible.
Find the latest version at https://crown.tech/wallet/ OR https://github.com/Crowndev/crown-core/releases/tag/v0.12.5.1
How to upgrade
Local wallets will be prompted to update automatically. Simply open your wallet, select your operating system and select download. Make sure to back-up your wallet.dat first!
The wallet download will include a bin and a lib folder. With the Crown wallet shut down, replace the old bin and lib folders with the ones you just downloaded. That’s all!
If you run a Masternode or a Systemnode, you will need to update those as well. Simply copy-and-paste the provided script into the terminal of your VPS and you’re done!
sudo apt-get install curl -y && curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Crowndev/crown-core/master/scripts/crown-server-install.sh | bash -s
After updating, make sure to check the status of your incentivized nodes by typing crown-cli masternode status or crown-cli systemnode status into the terminal of your VPS.
The Crown Development Team
* The crash was caused by a bug in ‘ Masternode::CalculateScore’ method for a masternode that just received the necessary number of confirmations (15) to be considered a valid node. The bug was caused by access to a non-existing block in the chain (next block to be created). We believe this bug also exists in the upstream repository.
arith_uint256 CMasternode::CalculateScore(int64_t nBlockHeight)
// Find the block hash where tx got MASTERNODE_MIN_CONFIRMATIONS
CBlockIndex *pblockIndex = chainActive[GetInputHeight(vin) + MASTERNODE_MIN_CONFIRMATIONS — 1]; // ← Crash is here
