bitcoind – Is versionbit 28 on testnet one thing that may be disregarded?


My testnet node is displaying a price within the getblockchaininfo warnings discipline associated to versionbit 28, which I see referenced in numerous threads going again years.

The angles I am attempting to deal with are:

  • If I am working the newest model of core, is it nonetheless typical to see unknown guidelines now and again? Ought to this example be thought-about an unsupported softfork or one thing totally different?

  • The place can I learn the way to assist newly activated guidelines i.e. what actions to take?

  • Is that this just some quirk as a result of Bitcoin Traditional forked on testnet (see right here)?

Right here is a few information from bitcoin-cli:
