Are you actually saying that an older wallet with dogecoin could be blocked or banned if they try to sync the wallet and use the coins in the future?

Well kinda. If you use Dogecoin Core version before 1.8.3 or other wallets older than the wallets listed, your transaction may not confirm at the regular rate or even at all. You won't lose those doges, they just won't get sent. If you try to mine using the older wallets, the rest of the network will not accept the block that you mined and it will be orphaned.

Your keys and balances/doges aren't banned, their wallet just isn't up to the current security standard of the new wallets. The 1.10 core has some pretty cool security and syncing features built-in. Once you upgrade your wallet, you can continue to use your addresses/keys normally.

If you have any questions about upgrading, please let me know. I'll be happy to help :)

(Always backup you wallet.dat or local wallet file before upgrading and reinstalling)

Uh, that pretty much means they are worthless.

This was what I was wondering about. I ask because other dying coins have done similar things that cause users to lose their coins during a forced upgrade.

If you open your old wallet.dat file with the new software, will your funds be accessible without any weird upgrade steps?
