  • Full IPFS integration has been achieved

In other Historia development news, here is a short list of some other areas the team currently is focused on. More updates to come as work proceeds.

Masternode statistic and voting coming soon

To setup your masternode, please follow these instructions: https://github.com/HistoriaOffical/historia/blob/master/historia-docs/masternode-setup.md

To upgrade your masternode from the previous version, see the “Upgrade” section of the previously mentioned URL.

Windows masternode Setup Guide – https://github.com/HistoriaOffical/historia/blob/master/historia-docs/masternode-setup-windows.md

Sentinel Binary for Windows Masternodes – https://github.com/HistoriaOffical/sentinel/releases/tag/1.0


It should be noted that the above release while stable, the settings surrounding IPFS are still to be determined for stability. IPFS daemon will be killed off if your VPS is low on memory. You may be able to run on 1 GB VPS, but we would recommend 2 GB for future expansion. The current version will not lower your masternode status into WATCHDOG_EXPIRED if IPFS isn’t running, but future versions will enforce IPFS being running 99% of the time.  

Stayed tuned, and stay true…
