Thawte Code Signing Certificate Issued
« on: November 18, 2016, 08:05:18 PM »
I'm pleased to announce that the community has received its new Thawte Code Signing Certificate.

We had been receiving occasional reports from new users about their antivirus software being triggered when installing the Windows desktop application.

To help alleviate this problem, we have registered the core group under the name "GoldCoin Developers Group" and obtained a Thawte code signing certificate. These certificates are difficult to obtain and require a high level of vetting. We were also required to obtain a Professional Opinion Letter from a certified accountant and register with the Secretary of State.

The Windows binary (available here: has now been dual-signed with both SHA1 and SHA256 signature algorithms. Although updating your client is not necessary, feel free to download and install the latest signed version.


The Goldcoin team is 100% committed to providing the highest quality tools and software as we continue to evolve.
