Groestlcoin Core is a full Groestlcoin client and builds the backbone of the network. It offers high levels of security, privacy, and stability. However, it has fewer features and it takes a lot of space and memory.

How to Upgrade?

Windows

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.

OSX

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), run the dmg and drag Groestlcoin Core to Applications. Users running macOS Catalina need to “right-click” and then choose “Open” to open the Groestlcoin Core .dmg.
