If you are a BNB holder, you do not need to anything. All exchanges, wallets and hardware wallets that support BNB will be upgrading their nodes so nothing has to be done from your side. However, if you are a full node operator, you will have to upgrade to v0.7.2.

You can download v0.7.2 from binance’s official github. If your node is fully synced, simply replace the previous version by changing config.toml and app.toml under home folder with latest versions. Restart it by typing this in terminal.
