Pirate Chain News | May 2024 Exciting Essential Updates

Pirate Chain News at a Glance

In this month's Pirate Chain news: The Treasure Chest full node wallet received a nice update to v5.8.2. Pirate Chain made its presence by sponsoring the hugely popular Enemies of the State D.C. Bash, Freenauts and the Libertarian National Convention. There's great excitement amongst our users, with our recently added merchant, Monezon, where you can now buy anonymously on Amazon worldwide using ARRR.

Treasure Chest Full Node Wallet v5.8.2

Treasure Chest v5.8.2 is now available! The focus of this update was primarily in regards to a series of background code maintenance with significant modifications to the build system and removal of unused libraries. Of note, Ubuntu and Mac no longer support the operating system versions used previously. In this version the minimum OS version has been updated to Ubuntu 20.04 and OSX Big Sur. Users of older operating systems will need to update their OS.

Note: Treasure Chest v5.8.2 is a non-mandatory update, but due to bug fixes in transaction handling it is highly recommended.


  • Major changes to the build system
  • Moved to c++17 from c++11
  • Moved to gcc9 from gcc8
  • Releases are compiled on ubuntu 20.04 replacing 18.04 for linux, windows and aarch64
  • Releases are compiled on OSX Big Sur replacing High Sierra for OSX
  • Removed redundant code (Proton and Libsnark)
  • Releases produced on ubuntu 20.04 were compiled using docker engine. The docker files used to create the releases can be found here.

Bugs Fixed

  • Fixed the wallet URI handling
  • Fix the note issue no showing in the walled when using consolidation or sweep
  • Fix some transactional and meta data leakage from RPC while a wallet is locked
  • Improved local RPC access security when GUI wallet is in a locked state.

New Features

  • New config option “-unlockforreporting” which will allow transactional data and non-key data to be reported while the wallet is locked.

The most recent version of Treasure Chest is available via our GitHub.
