Nov 2023 - Latter Rain Release

November 2023 Release - Latter Rain




Welcome to TestNet - Latter Rain!



Testing Starts: September 18th, 2023
Testing Ends: November 1, 2023



In this thread we will be testing:

- New sanctuary sizes (Altar, Sanctuary, Temple) with collateral amounts (455,001, 4,500,001, and 45,000,001) and corresponding payments of (10%, 100%, 1000%)
  a. Verify each size of sanc can register properly and appear in the deterministic masternode list
  b. Verify the payment amount on each sanc
  c. Verify the chain can sync from 0 after we solve some temple blocks
- Verify the monthly superblock still works and emits and is the correct amount
- Our background batch job has been retired (ReviveSanctuaries); this is because now investors should not interfere with LLMQ quorums
- Verify Quorums form for Temples only (this increases the reliability for Chainlocks)
- Verify Temple and Altar coins in wallet lock in coin control and require an unlock (like regular sancs) so they dont get spent by accident
- Verify inactive sanctuaries (IE investor nodes) receive 50%
- Verify masternodelist shows the Tribe for a Temple
- This release includes a fix in RX miner to sleep after solving a block in MAINNET to attempt to prevent the CLSIG (Chainlock) lagging block scenario
- Cutover height 192200

Here's a good testnet block hash after the cutover height:

Hey Oncoapop, I know you wanted to participate.
Once you get synced up in testnet let me know that you passed the blockhash check.

If you want to start up a temple, let me know your recv address and Ill send you 50MM, but please note, if you could definitely keep the funds available for us for the future because we have limited funds available in testnet total (we may need them back for something later).

In the mean time, feel free to fire up an Altar in investor only mode and see if it gets 1/10th the payment?
You should be past the cutover height by now.

Great!  Looks like you are synced.

I actually had one bug fix I have to release to testnet.
But since we are having prod problems, Im going to go ahead and test these changes right now, so we can have a faster testnet release (blocks are lagging on Chainz, and SouthXChange has stopped).  In light of that I think we need an emergency prod release today.
