If you are just a regular DFI hodler, there is nothing you need to do.

If you are running your own masternode, this is how you can run the update:

Download and untar the relevant version to your operating system, run bin/defid or bin/defid.exe to start a DeFi Blockchain daemon. The client (CLI) can be found at bin/defi-cli or bin/defi-cli.exe.

You will have to reindex after the first upgrade to 1.2.0. To reindex, run defid -reindex.

App (GUI) users
If you are running the desktop app, you do not have to manually update the underlying node. Check https://github.com/DeFiCh/defi-app/releases for the latest releases.

Please report any issues to engineering@defichain.com, or reach out to is via Telegram or Reddit.
