How To Safely Upgrade A Wallet (Litecoin/Bitcoin)


Upgrading the core wallet software any
crypto currency is easy. And comes with many benefits such as improved security, speed and overall performance. As well as
sometimes including new features. However — An important note before we start: Never download a wallet from anywhere That isn’t an official trusted site, as it may contain walware or nasty junk that could potentially steal your coins.
You have been warned! With that said, let’s hop to one of our
official sites: litecoin.org. The wallets often
come in one of two versions a 32-bit and a 64-bit. If you don’t know
which one you need you can do a simple search for Control
Panel system and security then system. Here, you’ll be able to see your system
type. litecoin.com is also an official
site run by us where we can download the update. It’s just exact same process:
select the version we want and download it. Bitcoin users, similarly, can head over to bitcoin.org — introduction — getting started and choose a wallet. There is one last thing we need to do
before we begin… That is to back up the wallet just
in case anything were to go wrong. Yes, as unlikely as that is to
happen, it is better to be safe than sorry. Now that that is done, we can close the
wallet and open the new downloaded file. From here just click ‘Next’… ‘Next’ again, and let it do
its thing. And just like that, it’s done! Click
‘Finish.’ and we can see if we have
successfully upgraded our core wallet. Just allow it access to private networks
and… There we are. If anything did go wrong during this
process you can restore the wallet using the backup. Just do a search for: %appdata% and open the Litecoin–or which ever
coin name folder you’re using— and drag the backup over. When prompted to replace, just say ‘yes’.
