#### UPGRADING PROCEDURE ####
- BACKUP YOUR WALLET. Please make sure you properly backup your wallet first in case anything goes wrong. Save a backup of your wallet.dat file in a secure location.
- Download the NEW wallet.
- Upgrading to POSv will require a chain resync for ALL wallets. We have created a bootstrap file to get up and running faster with the new wallet.
You can download the bootstrap here: http://potchain.net/posv/bootstrap.dat
You are not required to use the bootstrap.dat file, you can simply let the new wallet sync up.
- Close your current PotCoin application if it’s running.
- Go to the PotCoin App Data folder.
For Windows: C:/users/YOUR_USERNAME/AppData/Roaming/Potcoin
For Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/PotCoin
Delete everything in there EXCEPT for your wallet.dat file. If using the bootstrap file, place the downloaded “bootstrap.dat” in that folder as well.
- Install the new Potcoin 0.8.7.1 POSv Wallet.
- Open the new PotCoin wallet, it should be syncing up to the network now. Wait until wallet syncs and you are ready to go.
