Conflux Tethys Network v1.1.4 Upgrade Announcement

Incompatible Changes: Some error messages stored in receipts/traces are changed. This will affect the return message format of some RPCs. Please read this for details: Conflux-Chain/CIPs#70


RPC Improvements

  • Add a new RPC cfx_getAccountPendingTransactions to get pending transactions of a given account.
  • Make VM tracer records reasons for a fail execution.
  • Make cfx_estimateGasAndCollateral return an error stack in case an error happens in sub-call.
  • Use random miner address in virtual calls (cfx_call and cfx_estimateGasAndCollateral) instead of a special null address.

Configuration Improvements

  • Allow setting maximum WebSocket response payload size using jsonrpc_ws_max_payload_bytes. The default is 30MB.

Bug fixes

  • Fix a bug that causes repacking useless transactions.
  • Fix a bug that causes the configuration sync_state_starting_epoch not effective on archive nodes.
  • Fix a bug that may make cfx_getStatus return unexpected error.


The new version of the node program can be downloaded in

I am a node operator/miner, what do I need to do?

If you have started the node, you need to suspend the operation of the node first, and then replace the executable file named “conflux” in the run directory of the original node program with the Conflux executable file of the Conflux v1.1.4 node program. It can be restarted later.
If you start a new node, you can download the latest version of Conflux v1.1.4 and run it.

What will happen if I do not upgrade the nodes or refuse to upgrade?

Under normal circumstances, there will be no problems. This upgrade does not involve the content of the consensus layer, it is your choice to upgrade or not.

What impact will it have on ordinary users?

During the upgrade process of nodes running on the chain, some services may be affected and delayed. After the node upgrade is completed, it will return to normal.
