Zcash Beta2 is now Live on the Testnet!


#1

The Zcash team has released Beta2 to the Testnet last night!

You will need to re-download and compile the latest version to connect to the Updated Testnet. This also means all of your previous Test Coins are invalidated.

#3

Followed the "just upgrade" note on the tutorial - works great.


#4

After upgrading and updating Ubuntu, when I type in the following lines:

sudo apt-get install \
build-essential pkg-config libc6-dev m4 g++-multilib \
autoconf libtool ncurses-dev unzip git python \
zlib1g-dev wget bsdmainutils automake

it says:

"libncurses5-dev" is selected instead of "ncurses-dev"

and also:

E: impossible to find the bsdmainutils package

Someone can help?
(I am using Bash on Win 10)


#5

Awesome, rebuilding now! Will be mining away soon!

I'll go through and make sure the work-in-progress Cockpit UI plugin is still working...
I'll also double check my command implementation with the payment-api.md documented here

Send me some play TAZ: ztTyRXtHrEtLodDuPsBHZiAc9EbXcLxiJe7baQH2fWnK4PXcBiUkPjdZaN8jqqAP3xaJPfEsHrARvkeARsgmaiBhbUemgD7


#6

Also note that if you have Tor installed, you can now connect to the testnet that way. Just addnode=zctestseie6wxgio.onion


#7

Mined my first beta2 coin!
Wed Oct 05 2016 11:56:34 GMT-0700 (Pacific Standard Time) - confirmations: 13


#8

I am a new user in zcash and beta2. I would be happy if you could send me a 1/10 of a beta2 coin, so I can see that my wallet/mine is working. Thanks.

#9

faucet not working
can someone send taz to tmUEedsCinCyGFNDuvzWoiHLMwf5FLZr8s9
thanks


#13

Same here please :
tmHctD3HMM4bsjTCeMnMCe7XezdPhaLHe8i

Thank you!


#14

I have little to spare but that's what friends are for: sent 1 milli-TAZ to tmUEedsCinCyGFNDuvzWoiHLMwf5FLZr8s9 (enough for several transactions). Use it wisely :wink:


#15

thanks! I'll try how things work and will try to pass it along too.


#16

How do i check my version is beta 2?


#17

Can anyone send me some testCoins to tmEVtrQGmfMsAS8vJ9b4fiabzgXm7i2qhVk ? The faucets are not working...


#18

I have little to spare: sent 2 milli-TAZ to tmEVtrQGmfMsAS8vJ9b4fiabzgXm7i2qhVk (enough for several transactions). BTW: Have you tried the GUI wallet?


#19

I haven't tried GUI wallet yet. Does it work on OS X :slight_smile: or only Linux?


#20

For now the ZCash Desktop GUI wallet works only on Linux, but then so does ZCash itself :wink: When ZCash starts supporting Windows/OS X - the GUI will need a few tweaks but I will make it work...

There is another web-based UI wallet that may or may not work on other OSes... please ask user hellcat. He is the author.
