Introducing Blocknet Comet (Mandatory Update)

  • XBridge is a true decentralized exchange protocol that allows users to conduct peer-to-peer trading of native assets directly from their own wallets.
  • XRouter is a decentralized full node SPV network that enables use of on-chain data from any public or private blockchain without requiring users to download the full blockchain.
  • XCloud is a decentralized oracle network that enables on-chain use of off-chain data, APIs, and services.

Blocknet Core

  • Blocknet’s default data directory has been renamed from BlocknetDX/ to Blocknet/ on Windows and MacOS and from .blocknetdx/ to .blocknet/ on Linux.
  • Blocknet’s wallet configuration file has been renamed from blocknetdx.conf to blocknet.conf.
  • When interacting with the wallet via CLI you will need to use blocknet-cli instead of blocknetdx-cli.
  • Support for the getinfo command has been dropped and replaced with getblockchaininfo.
  • Current Service Nodes will need to be set up again. You can view the instructions for this procedure here and the new guide for voting on proposals here.

Staking & Network Improvements


  • 25% of all voting Service Nodes in this Superblock must have voted on the proposal
  • 60% of votes must be “yes” (in favor)
  • At this point all valid proposals are prioritized according to these requirements:
  • The Superblock is then filled by as many valid proposals as possible according to the priority defined by (1), (2), and (3).
  • If there are not enough funds remaining in the Superblock for a proposal to fit, it is skipped (not paid out), and the next proposal in the priority list is checked for qualification
