Blocknet Wallet v4.0 Upgrade Guide

If you have NOT run Blocknet Comet yet:

  1. Close and quit the Blocknet wallet if it is running.
  2. Download the latest Blocknet wallet.

  4. Close the Blocknet wallet.
  5. Navigate to your OS's respective BlocknetDX/ v3.x data directory. If you used the default data directory you'll find it here:

  6. Or paste %appdata%\Roaming\BlocknetDX\ into the file explorer path field

Past Contributions to Blocknet


  • Discovered a path (via Anyswap) to create an ERC20 version of BLOCK (aBLOCK) in less than 2 months, which required very little of Blocknet dev time or Blocknet money. Later, helped to leverage this same work to create an ARC20 (Avalanche bridged) version of BLOCK which now trades on Pangolin as "aaBLOCK."
  • Served as aBLOCK & aaBLOCK embassador, providing liaison & testing services with Anyswap while aBLOCK & aaBLOCK were in development.
  • Wrote a comprehensive Gist about aBLOCK
  • Wrote a comprehensive Gist about aaBLOCK
