Installation notes

Dash Core v0.14.0.0 will automatically activate DIP0008 once 80% of the network has upgraded. Mining pools must mine an upgraded block to successfully signal the upgrade in a block, and 80% of blocks in a window must signal in order to lock in the upgrade.

  • Activation status can be tracked in the image below or at this site.
