Dogecoin Releases A Major Upgrade To Boost Security And Effectiveness.
With the addition of this upgrade, the Dogecoin (DOGE) fee mechanism was enhanced: Dust limitations for all network participants were decreased from 1 DOGE to 0.01 DOGE.
The main software for the Dogecoin (DOGE) project has received an update from the developers that enhances user interface, security, and effectiveness.
Dogecoin Core 1.14.6, the most recent update, went live early on Thursday, and all users of the network were advised to update. The most recent version includes a number of new features, adjustments to the current fee structure, and various security updates.
The “breaking changes” also include a restriction on the maximum number of addnode records and a change to the setup of the wallet backup directory. There can only be 800 addnodes at a time. The dust limitations for all network participants have been decreased from 1 DOGE to 0.01 DOGE, which is a crucial enhancement to DOGE’s fee mechanism.
According to the GitHub document, the network’s memory management has been improved in cases of congestion. The document also discloses that corrupted messages are now rejected by the network. Dogecoin Core developer Patrick Lodder wrote in a GitHub document that:
“This is a new minor version release, including important security updates and changes to network efficiency. All Dogecoin Core users — miners, services, relay operators and wallet users — are strongly recommended to upgrade.”
The Doge Army was ecstatic by the news, with “Doge father” Elon Musk tweeting in particular, “Upgrades!” Later, Billy Markus, the inventor of Dogecoin, tweeted about the incident with the caption “new version of dogecoin core released.”
After a recent period of positive sentiment in the Dogecoin community, which saw the introduction of memes to the Dogeverse and a corresponding rise in network activity, the upgrade was announced.
For the first time since May 2021 this week, the network processed more than 80,000 transactions in 24 hours on Wednesday as Whales continued to show interest.
