Dogecoin (DOGE) Developers Release Core Upgrade, Further Reducing Fees

Popular meme coin Dogecoin (DOGE) is on the way to the moon with a brand new core upgrade. The Dogecoin Core 1.14.6 upgrade was launched early Thursday morning. The news was shared by Dogecoin creator Billy Markus, as well as on DOGE’s official account.

In addition, the key developer of Dogecoin Core now said “All Dogecoin Core users — miners, services, relay operators and wallet users — are strongly recommended to upgrade,” in the official post published on GitHub.

Some Breaking Changes for DOGE

Many network participants were patiently waiting for the new core update, as it cuts down the dust limits from 1 DOGE to 0.01 DOGE. Furthermore, the core upgrade is bound to reject buggy messages and increase security. Another crucial change is the maximum number of addnotes, which has been reduced to 800.

Finally, the alert system has been removed from the ecosystem and the download system, so transactions should run more smoothly. Plus, with the memory management mechanism enhanced, it’s easy to understand the developer’s polite request to upgrade.
