I'm trying to run on testnet using:

./monero-wallet-rpc --wallet-file MyWallet --daemon-address testnet.xmrchain.net:28081 --rpc-bind-port 28081 --testnet --disable-rpc-login

I tried getting testnet XMR coins from http://dis.gratis

However, all I get is this:

The Monero testnet forked to v7 a month ago or so. If you're using an older monero-wallet-cli, it doesn't have code to recognize v7 blocks or bulletptroofs (which are the main change). You'll have to use a recent wallet. Be aware that there will be a testnet reorg where v7 consensus rules will change to save some more space and make bulletproofs a little safer still.

  • Should I build a bleeding edge cli bin which supports v7? Because I cant use the GUI on a headless setup

  • If you want to use testnet, yes. There are nodes still on v6 though, but since seed nodes are on v7, they're hard to find now :)
