Second update of Bitcoin Core : unveils version 22.0

A few weeks ago, the first version of the open-source Bitcoin Core software was unveiled. And since then, all eyes have been on the next version. The second update of Bitcoin Core for 2021 (version 22.0) is now available. It was made public last Monday.

What is special about the new update?

Each new update brings its share of novelties and originalities. In the case of version 22.0, there is a hardening of remote procedure calls (RPC). RPDs are actually communication channels through which users can interact with the Bitcoin (BTC) network. In addition to strengthening RPCs, the new update brings improvements to the build system , tools, and files that make up the network. In addition, the graphical user interface (GUI) has received a makeover to become more original.

Concretely, among the notable changes that there is, we can cite the removal of the anonymous browser Tor v2 . For its users, this browser had become obsolete and its functionality was outdated. In addition, he was beginning to present problems relating to his level of security. This is one of the reasons why the new update is very popular. Indeed, it replaces Tor v2 by Tor 23.

Almost 8 months after the first version

According to the information that is officially available, Bitcoin Core 22.0 will not be functional on all media. For example, versions of MacOS prior to 10.14 will not be able to take advantage of it. On the other hand, all versions of MacOS released after 10.14 will be able to benefit from the many advantages of the new system . Apart from MacOS , Linux and Windows 7 users will be able to use it.
