DeepOnion V 1.6.1 With Stealth Addresses (Mandatory Upgrade)

in deeponion •  2 years ago  (edited)

Please see: DeepOnion V 1.6.1 Released Important Upgrade

We discovered an issue that prevent people to send large blocks in 1.6.0, and the new 1.6.1 fixes it.

Introducing v 1.6 with Stealth Addresses!

This wallet is a major release that will support Stealth Address (SA) after block 460,000. This is a mandatory upgrade that everyone should upgrade to before the block 460,000 to avoid a potential fork. We have about 2 weeks to reach block 460,000.

GitHub Source Updated


This is a major release and is a mandatory update.

Here are the new features integrated into the wallet:
(1) Support Stealth Addresses after switch block 460,000 (will be reached in about 2 weeks)
(2) New DeepVault algorithm which will be faster.

This is a mandatory upgrade due to a hard fork which is required. This will be done on block 460,000. All mining pools and exchanges will have to upgrade.

This version also includes the latest TOR version, OBFS4, and Meek for optimal privacy.

We are now Truly Unstoppable & more Powerful than ever. Let's Keep Dominating!

Verify Wallet with DeepVault:

Attention: Do not use (unofficial) DeepVault unverified wallet files for your security.

Attention! Make all tests only inside the testnetwork with a compulsory backup of the wallet.dat file. Actually, don't use your main wallet.dat file for the test network (a new one for the testnet will be generated automatically).

Stealth addresses will be available in the mainnet only after the switch block 460,000.

DeepOnion.conf for the testnet (be patient – it takes some time to sync):


# testnet nodes

Ask for testnet $ONIONs in the comments section below (post your addresses in the test network).

DeepOnion released a new wallet version with a minor bug fix.

The main feature of the v1.6 is the support of stealth addresses which prevent other people from tracing your wallets. I could already test them and wrote an article about it. You can find it on the DeepOnion community forum.
