How to Upgrade

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on Mac) or bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux).

Downgrading warning


Bitcoin Core is extensively tested on multiple operating systems using the Linux kernel, macOS 10.8+, and Windows Vista and later. Windows XP is not supported.

Bitcoin Core should also work on most other Unix-like systems but is not frequently tested on them.

1.1.4 change log


  • Added command -setvbrmultiplier=<n> to the command line options. Miners should add this line to bitcoin.conf for VBR multiplier values: ex: To mine for x4 block rewards -setvbrmultiplier=4 NOTE: Any changes to the GUI pull down multiplier in the ‘Miner’ tab will override the VBR multiplication, if running bitcoind, this is not a possibility. ### RPC and other APIs
  • Ensure VBR multiplier plays nicely with setvbrmultiplier values


  • Ensure VBR multiplier stays inbounds.
