Polis Core.

V1.7.0 is out!

As a result of the recent attack discovered by the team, the DAO has decided to release an emergency update.

It includes fixes for chain synchronization and introduces a new block difficulty algorithm to prevent stake grinding.

Prior to the official release, the team was using an unreleased version to perform the hard fork at block between blocks774911.

As soon as the chain was deemed stable, the team advised exchanges and partners to reopen.

What’s new?

This update introduces a lot of fixes for sync issues (goodbye bootstraps!).

We added a new difficulty calculation algorithm.

Plus some new checkpoints and and other measures to ensure you end up on the right chain. To update please head to:


If you have any sort of issue syncing to the current block, a resync from scratch will be able to get you to sync. All other sorts of syncing issues have been solved by the update.

How to sync from scratch?

With your wallet stopped, delete the block, chainstate, llmq, and evodb folders and open your wallet again. You should start downloading every block.

Trouble finding peers?

If you have trouble finding peers, make sure you are not staking until you are synced, or at least past block 774911, and add the following nodes to your polis.conf file. The list will be updated as more nodes are active.

addnode= addnode= addnode= addnode= addnode= addnode= addnode= addnode= addnode=

For more information, we created an article where we explain in full detail what happened with the attack:
