How to Upgrade Your ZenCash Software
Anyone running a ZenCash node – please change your reference repository and update before the 117,575 block, which will happen Tuesday midday. At this block the mandatory upgrade takes effect, it is also known as a soft fork. This is especially important for mining pool operators, solo miners, and exchanges.
The master branch at this repo is what you need to upgrade to https://github.com/HorizenOfficial/zen
If you are running an earlier version of a Zen wallet, you should upgrade that as well. There are binaries available for Windows and Mac for the Eleos version 0.0.7 wallet at https://github.com/zencashofficial/eleos/releases
This is a way to do it if you are currently running a Zen node:
cd ~/zen ## Set new Remote! This is the most important step! git remote set-url origin https://github.com/HorizenOfficial/zen.git ## Verify if the new remote has been set to the correct _NEW_ Github! git remote -v ## Git Pull and Compile as a normal upgrade. git pull ./zcutil/build.sh -j$(nproc) ./src/zen-cli stop sleep 10 ./src/zend --daemon ## Verify if your version matches the newest release! ./src/zen-cli getinfo

Please guys, help me out here. I am an early investor into Zclassic. When Zencash forked out from Zclassic, I was able to create my first Zen wallet and claim my coins. But since I downloaded the new wallet software (0.0.7), I have not been able to recover my funds. I still have my Zclassic private key as well as the wallet.dat file. I also have my wallet.dat backup for my first zenwallet. I have tried not import both wallet files but still can’t find my coins. Please any suggestion to recovering my funds will be highly appreciated. Thanks
