Pirate Chain Monthly News | February 2024 Highlights

Ahoy Pirates! The Pirate Chain Treasure Chest full node wallet just received a robust upgrade for speed and security, and it is now easier to be used on air-gapped (isolated) computers. The vARRR coin on Verus (to be traded 1 for 1 with ARRR) is in its final test stages; stay tuned for its debut day!

Work is being done on an upcoming new decentralized exchange to pair ARRR! Strategies for marketing our brand are still being worked on, and events and presentations are scheduled for later this year.

Pirate Chain aims to be present at additional conferences and events this year, and we just got back from the Anarchapulco conference in Acapulco, Mexico in February.

Treasure Chest v5.8.0

Ahoy Pirates! An enhanced speed & spam prevention upgrade v5.8.0 to the Treasure Chest wallet has been released! And for those Pirates concerned with increased security, it is easier now to completely isolate your Treasure Chest wallet in an air gapped computer. This upgrade comes with a very important warning:

v5.8.0 included breaking changes to both wallet structures and the block database. Any wallet updated to 5.8.0 will not be compatible with older clients. Please make a backup of your wallet, keys, and seed phrase before updating. Additionally, this version will zap all wallet transactions and perform a complete reindex of the chain. The bootstrap option is available to use.

Based on our internal testing, most users with relatively few notes will see little to no performance increase from this update. However, users with hundreds or thousands of notes will see dramatic increases in sync speed and block processing speed once synced.

v5.8.0. Is not a mandatory update.

Please stay tuned for tutorial videos on how to install your TC wallet on an isolated/air gapped computer/network or check a quick brief explanation by Forge on a below monthly video.

Withdraw ARRR from KuCoin before March 28

This is a reminder to any Pirates with any remaining ARRR on KuCoin to withdraw your ARRR from KuCoin before March 28. The aforementioned withdrawal service will close on March 28, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. (UTC). Be sure to withdraw your ARRR off KuCoin before March 28. Here is a link to the KuCoin announcement.

Pirate Chain Events

Here are some of the recent events Pirate Chain has been involved with and some upcoming events we'll be participating in. Pirate Chain is trying to stay active in the blockchain world, helping to get the important message of privacy and having private anonymous transactions out to the world.

Pirates at Anarchapulco 2024

Pirate Chain was present once more at the Anarchapulco conference from February 11–16, 2024 in Acapulco, Mexico! At the Anarchapulco Reborn Launch Party on Sunday night, we were happy to have our first-hand encounter with members of the Pirate Chain crew. Throughout the week, we worked the booth, welcoming new Pirates to our community.

This year, an array of over 400 people attended Anarchapulco, and each person was given a Pirate Chain lanyard to wear around their neck along with their conference badge. We were also able to assist in responding to inquiries consumers had regarding Pirate Chain. We were able to shuttle folks back and forth between the Edge App booth and Pirate Chain to aid with inquiries regarding both.


We did the usual sticker give-away and also donated items for the Anarchapulco closing ceremony raffle, including two bottles of rum, a gunmetal hip flask, a Pirate Chain t-shirt and a keychain.

Pirate Chain also hosted a Pirate Chain pARRRty on Wednesday evening of Anarchapulco for crypto day at Cafe Rustico, where attendees had a good time with some pirate rum. Scott Perrie made a guest appearance at the Pirate Chain pARRRty and played his cover version of The Privacy Shanty. He also played a song from his folk group, Winsome Kind. Rafael LaVerde from The Crypto Vigilante acknowledged Pirate Chain as the world’s most private cryptocurrency as an ending note.

We work hard to uphold our privacy and build a robust, open community in the process. Our recent visit to the Anarchapulco has demonstrated that the world is desperate for change; people no longer only want a tribe or a community — they require it, and once they do, they adhere to it with determination to continue and grow with it. I am honored and grateful to be a Pirate! Ahoy!
