Bitcoin core (help recovering)

Bitcoin core (help recovering)
I recently bought 40$ in btc and sent it to my wallet in Bitcoin core, my bitcoin core wasn't synced and I can't access the bitcoin sent to my wallet. I need help sending this bitcoin to my new online wallet as it wont sync, bitcoin core wont open and is stuck on Done loading. I deleted all the downloaded blocks to access bitcoin core though

Bitcoin QT 2 years out of sync. Sent payment that has no confirmations after 1 hour

I'm very out of the loop on this. I have had some btc stored on a wallet file on an offline computer for the past 2 or 3 years. I used/am using bitcoin qt on it. It is 600+ days out of sync and I haven't updated the software.
I just tried to send a payment using bitcoin-qt for an order that used coinbase's processing. Its been about an hour now, but when I search for the transaction ID on blockchain.info it says it could not find anything. When I search for the coinbase order payment address, it shows no payments. The coinbase web order page said I had 15 minutes and then showed that the order expired.
So I'm not sure what to do now
1: Is that payment I sent from the out of date, out of sync bitcoin-qt going to go through eventually? Or is that btc still in my wallet?
2: How would you recommend I proceed with handling my wallet for the future? I want to be able to leave it safely stored offline for years if needed. But also have access to at least some of it without needing to download the entire blockchain or worry about my wallet software being out of date. I'm not sure how I would transfer btc to a different wallet either.

A tour of the Gridcoin wallet

Hey guys, I thought I would put together an in-depth tour of the Gridcoin wallet software for all of our recent newcomers. Here I'll be outlining all the features and functions the windows GUI wallet has to offer, along with some basic RPC command usage. I'll be using the windows wallet as an example, but both linux and macOS should be rather similar. I'll be including as many pictures as I can as embedded hyperlinks.
Edit: Note that since I originally made this there has been a UI update, so your client will be different colors but all the button locations are in the same place.
This is my first post like this, so please forgive me if this appears a little scatter-brained.
This will not cover the mining setup process for pool or solo miners.
When you launch the wallet software for the first time you should be greeted with this screen.

OVERVIEW TAB

After that prompt, you should be left sitting on the main overview tab with several fields on it.
From top to bottom:

SEND TAB

Now onto the other tabs on the left side. Currently we're on the Overview tab, lets move down to the Send tab. This tab it pretty self-explanatory, you use it if you want to send coins, but I'll go over the fields here:
  • Pay To: Enter a valid gridcoin address to send coins too. Gridcoin addresses always start with an S or and R.
  • Label: Enter a label here and it will put that address in your "address book" under that label for later use. You can leave it blank if you don't want it in your address book.
  • Message: Enter a message here if you want it attached to your transaction.
  • Amount: How many coins you want to send.
  • Add Attachment: Leave this alone, it is broken.
  • Track Coins: This doesn't do anything.

RECEIVE TAB

Now down to the Receive tab. Here you should have a single address listed. If you double click on the label field, you can edit it's label.
  • New: Generate a new address.
If you click on an address, the rest of the options should be clickable.
  • Copy: Copy the selected address to your clipboard.
  • Show QR Code: Show a scan-able QR code for the selected address.
  • Sign Message: Cryptographically sign a message using the selected address.

TRANSACTIONS TAB

The Transactions tab is pretty boring considering we have no transactions yet. But as you can see there are some sorting tools at the top for when you do have transactions listed.

ADDRESS BOOK TAB

The Address Book is where all the addresses you've labeled (that aren't yours) will show up.
  • Verify Message: Verifies a message was signed by the selected address.
The rest of the functions are similar to the functions on the Receive tab.

VOTING TAB

Onto the Voting tab. There wont be any polls because we aren't in sync yet.
  • Reload Polls: Pretty self-explanatory, I've never had to use this.
  • Load History: By default, the wallet will only display active polls. If you want to view past polls you can use this.
  • Create Poll: You can create a network-wide poll. You must have 100,000 coins as a requirement to make a poll. (Creating a poll does not consume the coins)
Here's what the Voting tab will look like once you're in sync

CONTEXT BAR

Now onto the context bar menus on the top.
Under File you have:
  • Backup Wallet/Config: This lets you backup your wallet configuration file just in case.
  • Export: You can export your Transactions tab or Address Book in CSV format.
  • Sign message: Does the same thing as on the Receive tab.
  • Verify message: Does the same thing as on the Address Book tab.
  • Exit: Close the wallet.
Under Settings you have:
  • Encrypt Wallet: Encrypts your wallet with a password. (we'll come back to this)
  • Change Passphrase: Allows you to change your encryption password.
  • Options: Opens the options menu. (We'll come back to this)
Under Community you have:
Under Advanced you have:
  • Advanced Configuration: Opens the Advanced Configuration menu. (Not so advanced if you ask me)
  • Neural Network: Allows you to view solo miners project statistics. It will be largely blank if you're not in sync yet.
  • FAQ: Don't touch this, It is broken.
  • Foundation: Don't touch this, It is broken.
  • Rebuild Block Chain: Starts the client syncing from 0. Don't worry, using this will not make you lose coins.
  • Download Blocks: Downloads the latest official snapshot, can help speed up syncing. The download progress tends to sit at 99.99% for a long time, don't worry, it's working.
Under Help you have:
  • Debug window: Opens the debug window. (We'll come back to this)
  • Diagnostics: Don't touch this, it is broken. This has since been fixed. You can use this to see if there is anything wrong with your setup.
  • About Gridcoin: Opens the About Dialog. This gives you your client version and other information.

OPTIONS

Now back to the options menu under Settings > Options.
Here we have the options menu main tab:
  • Pay transaction fee: The transaction fee that will be automatically paid when you make a transaction.
  • Reserve: You can reserve an amount so that it will always be available for spending.
  • Start Gridcoin on system login: Pretty self-explanatory
  • Detach databases at shutdown: Speeds up shutdown, but causes your blockchain file to no longer be portable.
On the Network tab:
  • Map port using UPnP: Attempts to connect to nodes through UPnP.
  • Connect through SOCKS proxy: Allows you to connect through a proxy.
The window tab is pretty self-explanatory.
The Display tab is also pretty self-explanatory, with the exception of:
  • Display coin control features (experts only!): This allows you to have a great deal of control over the coins in your wallet, check this for now and I'll explain how to use it further down. Don't forget to click "Apply".

ENCRYPTING YOUR WALLET

Now that all of that is out of the way. The first thing you'll want to do is encrypt your wallet. This prevents anybody with access to your computer from sending coins. This is something I would recommend everyone do.
Go to Settings > Encrypt Wallet and create a password. YOU CANNOT RECOVER YOUR COINS IF YOU FORGET YOUR PASSWORD.
Your wallet will close and you will have to start it up again. This time when it opens up, you should have a new button in the bottom left. Now if you want to stake you will have to unlock your wallet. Notice the "For staking only" box that is checked by default. If you want to send a beacon for solo mining or vote, you will need to uncheck this box.

GETTING IN SYNC AND ICONS

Before we continue, Let's wait until we're in sync. Depending on your internet speeds, this could take from several hours to over a day or 2. This can be sped up by using Advanced > Download Blocks, but this can still take several hours.
This is what an in-sync client should look like. Notice the green check to the right of the Receive tab. All of these icons give you information when you hover your mouse over them.
The lock
The arrow tells you if you're staking. If you aren't staking, it will tell you why you're not staking. If you are staking it will give you an estimated staking time. Staking is a very random process and this is only an estimate, not a countdown.
The connection bars tell you how many connections to the network you have.
The check tells you if you're in sync.

WHAT IS STAKING?

Now I've said "stake" about a million times so far and haven't explained it. Gridcoin is a Proof of Stake (PoS) coin.
Unlike bitcoins Proof of Work (PoW), PoS uses little system resources, so you can use those resources for scientific work. PoS works by users "Staking" with their balance. The higher the balance, the higher the chance to create, or "stake" a block. This means you need to have a positive balance in order to stake. Theoretically, you can stake with any amount over 0.0125 coins, but in practice it's recommended to have at least 2000 coins to reliably stake.
Staking is important for solo miners, because they get paid when they stake. Pool miners don't need to stake in order to get paid however. So if you want to solo mine, you'll need to buy some coins from an exchange or start in the pool first and move to solo when you have enough coins.
In addition to Research Rewards for miners, anyone who holds coins (solo miners, pool miners, and investors) gets 1.5% interest annually on top of your coins. So it can be beneficial for pool miners to stake as well.
Here is a snippet of what a research rewards transaction looks like from my personal wallet. I have a label on that address of "Payout address" as you can see here.

UTXOS AND COIN CONTROL

At this point you'll need some coins. You can use one of our faucets like this one or this one to test coin control out.
First let me explain what a UTXO is. UTXO stands for Unspent Transaction Output. Say you have an address with 0 coins in it, and someone sends you 10 coins like I've done here. Those 10 coins are added to that address in the form of a UTXO, so we have an address with one 10 coin UTXO in it.
Now we receive another 5 coins at the same address, like so. Now we have an address with one 10 coin UTXO and one 5 coin UTXO. But how do we view how our addresses are split up into different UTXOs?
Earlier we checked the "Display coin control features" box in Settings > Options > Display. Once that's checked you'll notice there's another section in the Send tab labeled "Coin Control Features". If you click the "Inputs" button, you'll get a new window. And look, there's our 2 UTXOs.
All UTXOs try to stake separately from each other, and remember that the chance a UTXO has to stake is proportional to it's size. So in this situation, my 10 coin UTXO has twice the chance to stake as my 5 coin UTXO. Now wallets, especially ones that make a lot of transactions, can get very fragmented over time. I've fragmented my wallet a little so I can show you what I'm talking about.
How do we clean this up? We can consolidate all this into one UTXO by checking all the boxes on the left and selecting OK.
Now pay attention to the fields on the top:
  • Quantity: The total amount of UTXOs we have selected.
  • Amount: The total amount of coins we have selected.
  • Fee: How much it would cost in fees to send all those UTXOs (more UTXOs = more transaction data = more fees)
  • After Fee: Amount - Fees.
  • Bytes: How large the transaction is in bytes.
  • Priority: How your client would prioritize making a transaction with this specific set of UTXOs selected had you not used coin control.
  • Low Output: If your transaction is less than 0.01 coins (I think).
  • Change: What you will get back in change.
  • custom change address: You can set the address you get your change back at, by default it will generate a new address.
So let's fill out our transaction so we end up with 1 UTXO at the end.
In "Pay To:" Just put any address in your wallet, and for the amount put what it has listed in the "After Fee" Field. Just like this.
Notice how we get no change back.
Now click "Send", we'll be prompted to enter our passphrase and we're asked if we want to pay the fee, go ahead and click "Yes".
Now if we go back to the Overview tab we get this funky icon. If you hover your mouse over it, it says "Payment to yourself", and the -0.0002 GRC is the network transaction fee.
(Ignore the first one, that was me fragmenting my wallet)
Now if we look at the Coin Control menu, we can see that we've slimmed our wallet down from 7 UTXOs to 1.
Now why would you want to use coin control?
2 Situations:
  1. UTXOs less than 0.0125 coins cannot stake. So you can combine a lot of tiny, useless UTXOs into 1 bigger one that can stake.
  2. After a UTXO stakes, it cannot stake for another 16 hours. So if you have 1 large UTXO that is big enough to stake more than once every 16 hours, you can split it into smaller UTXOs which can allow you to stake slightly more often.
  3. By default, the wallet will always generate a new address for change, which can make your wallet get very messy if you're sending lots of transactions. Keep in mind that more UTXOs = larger transactions = more fees.
Sidenote - When you stake, you will earn all research rewards owed reguardless of which UTXO staked. However, you'll earn the 1.5% interest for that UTXO. Not your whole wallet.

FORKING

A fork is when the network splits into multiple chains, with part of the network on each chain. A fork can happen when 2 blocks are staked by different clients at the same time or very close to the same time, or when your client rejects a block that should have been accepted due to a bug in the code or through some other unique circumstance.
How do I know if I'm on a fork?
Generally you can spot a fork by looking at the difficulty on your Overview tab. With current network conditions, if your difficulty is below 0.1, then you're probably on a fork.
You can confirm this by comparing your blockhash with someone elses, like a block explorer.
Go to [Help > Debug Window > Console]. This is the RPC console, we can use to do a lot of things. You can type help to get a list of commands, and you can type help [command you need help with] (without the brackets) to get information on a command. We'll be using the getblockhash [block number] command.
Type getblockhash [block number] in the console, but replace [block number] with the number listed next to the "Blocks:" field on the Overview tab.
This will spit out a crazy string of characters, this is the "blockhash" of that block.
Now head over to your favorite block explorer, I'll be using gridcoinstats. Find the block that you have the hash for, use the search bar or just find it in the list of blocks.
Now compare your hash with the one gridcoinstats gives you. Does it match?
If it matches, then you're probably good to go. If it matches but you still think you're on a fork, then you can try other block explorers, such as gridcoin.network or neuralminer.io.
If it doesn't match, then you need to try to get off that fork.
How do I get off a fork?
  1. Just wait for an hour or two. 95% of the time your client is able to recover itself from a fork given a little time.
  2. Restart the client, wait a few minutes to see if it fixes itself. If it doesn't restart again and wait. Repeat about 4 or 5 times.
  3. Find where the fork started. Using the getblockhash command, go back some blocks and compare hashes with that on a block explorer so you can narrow down what the last block you and the block explorer had in common. Then use reorganize [the last block hash you had in common]. Note that reorganize takes a blockhash, not a block number.
  4. Use Advanced > Download Blocks.
  5. If none of this works, you can take a look at social media (reddit/steemit) and see what other people are saying.

CONFIGURATION FILE

Your configuration file depends on your operation system:
  • On Windows: %appdata%\GridcoinResearch\
  • On Linux: ~/.GridcoinResearch/
  • On MacOS: /Users/USERNAME/Library/Application/Support/GridcoinResearch/
And it should look like this.
If you open up your gridcoinresearch.conf, you'll see the default one it generated. Note that if you entered your email earlier, the first line will have your email on it instead of "investor". If you decided you want to solo mine but didn't enter your email when you first started the wallet, go ahead and put your email on the first line in place of "investor". If you're a pool miner, just leave it as "investor".
Next, it's recommended that you use the addnodes on the gridcoin wiki. So our gridcoinresearch.conf will look like this.
A useful line for solo miners is PrimaryCPID=[YOUR CPID]. Sometimes your wallet can pick up on the wrong CPID so it's good to have that in there if you're solo mining.

RUNNING A LISTENING NODE

A listening node is a node that listens for blocks and transactions broadcasted from nodes and forwards them on to other nodes. For example, during the syncing process when you're getting your node running for the first time, you're downloading all the blocks from listening nodes. So running a listening node helps support the network.
Running a gridcoin listening node is simple. All you need to do is add listen=1 to your gridcoinresearch.conf and you need to forward port 32749 on your router.
If you don't know how to port forward, I'd suggest googling "How to port forward [your router manufacturer]".

Also jtlarousse has found a solution that worked on Windows. Please follow carefully and make backups before starting.
Reebzy might have found a solution for Apple Mac
Blockchain fork 101: The block chain is a ledger or document created containing every transaction that has ever happened. This file can be quite large. Bitcoins ledger is over 15GB. At some point this document/ledger split into two separate documents known as a fork.
How do I know if I am on the right block chain?
Go to your newly updated dogecoin wallet and open it. Click on Help>>Debug next Observe the current block number
*Note the example numbers in the pictures might be out of date by the time you read them
Now go over to http://dogechain.info/chain/Dogecoin . This website is the official Dogecoin blockchain website. Check the block number they're reporting
The number you found in your wallet and the number reported on the website should close. There might be a difference of 100 blocks depending on when you last refreshed your wallet or how long it took for you to get from one step to the next step in this guide and if the dogechain website is lagging.
I'M NOT ON THE CORRECT BLOCK CHAIN
My numbers are very different. How do I get back onto the right block chain?
IMPORTANT
For windows:
1)Close down the Dogecoin wallet client.
2)Go to your data folder: C:\Users[your windows log-in name]\AppData\Roaming\DogeCoin
3)Delete the Dogecoin.conf file. Do not delete the wallet.dat file!
4)Download this update file and place it into the Dogecoin folder where the other file was deleted.

1)Close down the Dogecoin wallet client.
2)Go to your data folder: ~/Libarary/Application Support/Dogecoin
3)Delete the Dogecoin.conf file. Do not delete the wallet.dat file!
4)Download this update file and place it into the Dogecoin folder where the other file was deleted.
Next visit this post by Netcodepool for instructions on how to manually download the correct block chain and install it.
Much Thanks. 
Edit: Some posts were removed from this thread. To limit confusion.
Check this post for details about mining pools that were/are using the wrong fork.
Did you send coins only to find out you're on the wrong chain? See this post to get them back
An Apple Mac support thread has been made by voidref (The mac developer). If you're having troubles please see this thread
Some shibes have reported their wallets wont sync. Please check to make sure your firewall, antivirus, malware scanner or similar programs are not blocking it the wallet. You can add rules to these programs to allow the wallet to make contact with the internet. It's not advised but possible to also disable the software for a short amount of time. Don't forget to enable the software again afterwards.
Is your wallet crashing? Try this helpful tip from gandhikahn or if you're using windows try the 1.4.1 update above.

LND 9735 port wont open on Windows.

Hey everyone, im so close to getting my LN node running. Everything looks to be setup fine and running but I cant figure out this port problem on windows.
I have BitcoinCore running and synced and port 8333 is shown as open.
LND is running and linked up with Zap wallet but port 9735 wont open. I've forwarded the port on my router and created a permission on windows firewall.
Ive tried everything and have no clue why the port wont open.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Chatturga - Last Friday at 2:05 PM

Blondefrogs has been working on the 2.2.2 update. He isnt here today, but he left this tidbit for the meeting:(edited)"Release 2.2.2 has a bunch of new updates. The sync speed fix that was released in 2.2.1 has been updated even more to use less memory/ram and uses less CPU. Each node used to hold all addresses that contained an asset as well as the amount in those addresses. That is now optional with the -assetindex flag. Which can be put into the raven.conf or added as a parameter when starting the wallet. Some other wallet issues were also fixed with this memory update. This is considered an mandatory update, especially if you haven't updated to 2.2.1 which resolved a potential fork bug fix. I would still suggest updating to 2.2.2 even if you are on 2.2.1."📷6

any idea when dividends will be functional?

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:09 PM

A bunch of testing has been happening and is currently running on the seed-nodes.

Tron - Last Friday at 2:10 PM

No timeline for dividends, but it is the one function that doesn't need any changes to consensus. And it can be done on tier 2 with a python script. The plan is still to build in a rpc call.📷2

truedev - Last Friday at 2:11 PM

alright

SpyderDev - Last Friday at 2:12 PM

We have been focusing on sync performance and have been running many tests. I've added an image of the results of this testing. Currently we still want to work on getting the Windows QT sync times faster (at least closer to what they are using just ravend). Overall we are very happy with the speeds and hope it will help people that have struggled getting their nodes up to date.(edited)📷

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:13 PM

Yeah that table completely puzzled me

[Master] Roshii - Last Friday at 2:13 PM

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:13 PM

Fast branch is 2.2.1? or 2.2.2? Develop branch is 2.2.0?

SpyderDev - Last Friday at 2:15 PM

Sorry, should have clarified that. I was testing while it was still under development. On the table the top is the new-sync code, the bottom is the old "assets" release. As of about 5 minutes ago all of this code is on the develop branch.

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:15 PM

Although syncing is mostly bottlenecked by cpu speed, that 16 core windows-qt still looks off to me. I synced windows Qt using 2.2.2 in ~2h on a i5-7600K.ok

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:17 PM

Okay, we good to move to the Mobile update?

SpyderDev - Last Friday at 2:17 PM

The Windows box is an AWS instance and there is some concern that the remote desktop could be slowing the QT UI down causing the horrible sync times. I am working on getting a local Windows 10 resource and will have updated information once that is ready (early next week).

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:18 PM

ah that might explain. Ubuntu qt was 45 mins for me

So the iOS and Android use the same Core SPV module written in C, and it's the most difficult part.I have already did some work when it comes to Android, and it's 70% finishedHave also to port all the changes we lately did to the iOS wallet ...

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:21 PM

yeah, unfortunately its not as easy as cut and paste for ios to android

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:21 PM

Anybody interested in installing the TestFlight version and helping us test?

Tron - Last Friday at 2:33 PM

I have an idea.(edited)📷7📷6

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:34 PM

That several other devs have helped with. 📷

Tron - Last Friday at 2:34 PM

📷

SpyderDev - Last Friday at 2:34 PM

and lawyers

Tron - Last Friday at 2:34 PM

When the project started, ICOs were the big thing. Now it is STOsThe main difference is the legal wrapping and rules around securities.If Ravencoin has two more token types (Tags and Restricted Assets), there are lots of ways to make compliant tokens.Importantly, it doesn't affect the existing tokens at all.Tags - Tokens that can be sent only by the issuer once (with metadata).These tokens start with (hashtag)(edited)📷8

SpyderDev - Last Friday at 2:37 PM

^(octothorpe)

Tron - Last Friday at 2:37 PM

The Restricted Assets start with $, and can be frozen by the issuer. But they only move between tagged addresses.(edited)

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:38 PM

Tags can be sent to a user's address after the issuer has done the necessary due diligence for an STO issuance.(edited)

Tron - Last Friday at 2:38 PM

The issuer determines which tags the Restricted Asset will honor.This can be used for lots of different use cases.

EEE - Last Friday at 2:38 PM

Stunning interface guys

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:39 PM

will that determination be a setting in the wallet?

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:39 PM

Restricted assets can then only be sent to addresses that are allowed and have the proper Tags.

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:39 PM

interesting📷1

J. | ravenland.org - Last Friday at 2:39 PM

Did you guys get contacted by some entity* whos forcing the restricted address policy? or is this done as precautionary measure? At first glance your idea sounds good Tron.(edited)

Tron - Last Friday at 2:39 PM

Example: $UBER token only moves among addresses tagged with #KYC

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:40 PM

So Ravenland will have to buy a bunch more spam tokens.📷4

SpyderDev - Last Friday at 2:40 PM

#ravenland.

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:40 PM

so is the $ something that can be added to an existing asset?

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:40 PM

It's not a forced thing. But adding the ability for Raven to be used in new use cases where legal requirements exist.

Tron - Last Friday at 2:40 PM

Not contacted by anyone, and not precautionary. Ravencoin Assets are just tools. This is just another tool that will help issuers of security tokens.📷9📷4

BW__ - Last Friday at 2:41 PM

Love it.

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:41 PM

It'll be a new token type that you can create @boatsandhoes📷1

ravencoin maximalist 🧘🏻♂ - Last Friday at 2:41 PM

That sounds awesome

SpyderDev - Last Friday at 2:41 PM

I for one am very excited about this...📷4

Hans_Schmidt - Last Friday at 2:41 PM

How does the $ token owner specify the required # tags?

DeejayQQ - Last Friday at 2:41 PM

Can the same name have different token type?Sorry need time to digest

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:42 PM

Still working out the details. Tron will be posting additional info about the idea soon.

Steelers - Last Friday at 2:42 PM

Cool

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:42 PM

Feedback is wanted!

Tron - Last Friday at 2:42 PM

Q: Was this originally the plan for Ravencoin? A: No. This is in response to the regulatory ramp up in 2018 in some jurisdictions which requires that only known individuals or entities to operate peer-to-peer on certain tokens. For jurisdictions that allow unrestricted peer-to-peer transfer, we strongly encourage use of the original Ravencoin assets. The Restricted Assets are an adaptation to satisfy burdensome, privacy-destroying regulations, with a goal of reducing information replication which makes Ravencoin Restricted Assets a better alternative to those being promoted now.

jaysonb - Last Friday at 2:43 PM

all nodes will validate the transactions not just those interested in the transaction - i assume all will validate..

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:43 PM

so essentially any name already secured in the hopes of having that functionality are worth less because they wont be able to?

theking - Last Friday at 2:44 PM

Can the restricted assets be time based in any way? For instance, in some STO regulated environment, there is a lockup for some period of time after issuance, but then after a certain period of time the restriction goes away and the securities can be traded. Is that contemplated at all?

DeejayQQ - Last Friday at 2:44 PM

If I already have Tron as my asset, there could be another Tron but under a different token type such as restricted assets?

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:44 PM

Yes all nodes will do consensus checks.

corby - Last Friday at 2:44 PM

@boatsandhoes there's going to be a grace period where you can purchase $XXX if you own XXXon the order of months

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:45 PM

📷 📷 📷 📷

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:45 PM

Yes, you have the TRON asset and you can also have the $TRON asset.(edited)

Tron - Last Friday at 2:45 PM

Regarding the lockup....

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:45 PM

how many RVN for that?

Tron - Last Friday at 2:45 PM

Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933 This is an important rule to be aware of in terms of privately held securities. This rule provides the most commonly used exemption for holders to sell restricted securities (Note: For context, a restricted security is a security sold in an exempt offering, except for Reg A+). The general idea is that you can publicly resell your “restricted” (privately sold) securities only when the restricted legend is removed. The solution Ravencoin Restricted Assets provides is the ability for the Iissuer to Freeze the asset ininto the holders account. The qty will be visible, and the frozen status will be visible. The meta-data for a Freeze can specify 144_Restricted. The issuer can Unfreeze to release the 144 restriction.Similar for Reg D 1-year lockup.@theking

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:46 PM

@theking ^^

DeejayQQ - Last Friday at 2:46 PM

What is the timeline for this restricted asset to be implemented?📷1

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:46 PM

No timelines yetStill in the ideation phase.

SpyderDev - Last Friday at 2:46 PM

Fresh off the press...

DeejayQQ - Last Friday at 2:46 PM

Ok, idea for nowGot it

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:46 PM

Wanting input for the idea.

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:47 PM

a preset for lock up settings would be nice

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:47 PM

What about the ability to move an asset from restricted to unrestricted after grace period similar to the reissue ability? By the issuer(edited)

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:47 PM

adjustable preset*

DeejayQQ - Last Friday at 2:48 PM

If this restricted assets would help underlying token listed on exchanges for trading by satisfying the legal requirements, I don’t see why not. There are only benefits📷2

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:48 PM

yeah, win win

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:48 PM

There is something similar in vote tokens.

corby - Last Friday at 2:48 PM

@Jeroz the issuer would be able to "reissue" and relax restrictions

DeejayQQ - Last Friday at 2:48 PM

Just throwing things out here. Can we just make all existing tokens crested so far restricted assets?*created

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:49 PM

stupid question, is it possible to have burned rvn cost for the $ to add onto the block reward as a bonus?(edited)

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:49 PM

No, @DeejayQQ there should be both usecases available in the platform.

corby - Last Friday at 2:49 PM

We (my dog and I) are envisioning a differentiated space where we can charge a lot more RVN to keep non-serious people out..(edited)

Tron - Last Friday at 2:49 PM

@Jeroz Yes, as long as the asset is still "reissuable", you could change the logic from (#KYC & #ACCREDITED) to just #KYC📷3

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:49 PM

I'm just worrying about the name uniqueness if you can have #BANANA and $BANANA

BW__ - Last Friday at 2:50 PM

Is it fair to assume that tags can be standardized for specific purposes? If so, should we create something akin to an 'ERC' in git repo?

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:50 PM

@Tron sounds cool

truedev - Last Friday at 2:50 PM

honestly, I think you should be able to buy/create an asset in a set, with all types(edited)

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:50 PM

^that part

Hans_Schmidt - Last Friday at 2:51 PM

Since the #KYC tag is just locked to an address, what prevents someone from selling their address and thereby the KYC?

corby - Last Friday at 2:51 PM

The "#" types won't trade -- they're just stamps to stamp addresses as qualified-to-hold-some-stuff..

Tron - Last Friday at 2:51 PM

The tags are created by the users. The system is still jurisidiction agnostic.

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:51 PM

@Hans_Schmidt nothing really, the same thing as selling your username password to any other existing financial app account.

corby - Last Friday at 2:51 PM

@Hans_Schmidt Real world networks, high cost of entry (for serious applications)For non-serious applications, nothing

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:51 PM

You still have the liability associated with that account though.

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:52 PM

@corby what about BANANA/ vs $BANANA/ ?Or do you want to make them subassets?

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:52 PM

@Jeroz better safe than sorry, just swoop both

Tron - Last Friday at 2:52 PM

A country could require that #SOMECOUNTRY tag has to exist before moving $SPECIALASSET to an address. The users set the rules. #KYC was just an example because it is an industry problem at the moment.

corby - Last Friday at 2:52 PM

#BANANA, $BANANA, TRICYCLE, and BANANA can all coexist just fine I think..

theking - Last Friday at 2:53 PM

Thanks @Tron. This is great and I think something that will enable raven to become an even more widely used platform.📷4

Tron - Last Friday at 2:53 PM

That's the hope. I think it solves some real problems that the industry is trying to solve through incompatible ERC-20 experiments.📷3

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:54 PM

/hacks📷3

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:54 PM

what is the purposed cost for $ in addition to an existing asset?

corby - Last Friday at 2:54 PM

People that own #THESE I am calling "Qualifiers" -- they just stamp their mark on addresses. Issuers of $THESE need to establish trust with #THESE and #THOSE and then decide what restrictions to apply.📷1

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:54 PM

5 mins left. Stay on this topic or switch to meetup?

Tron - Last Friday at 2:55 PM

@boatsandhoes Not determined.

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:55 PM

yeah the idea is a nice proof of ownership / membership

Punch and pie

J. | ravenland.org - Last Friday at 2:56 PM

Can the SLC meetup made interactive for people that cant make it there?

theking - Last Friday at 2:56 PM

What about having just one name ( you first buy the standard raven token under whatever name you like) and then the holder of the owner token is the only one to create restricted tokens ? Might be some way to ensure no name confusion.📷4

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:56 PM

what about that block reward bonus concept for purchasing $. would that work?

Chatturga - Last Friday at 2:56 PM

I dont know that we have the ability to make it interactive as far as Q&A goes, but I'll look into it. We should have it live streaming. @J. | ravenland.org(edited)📷2

BW__ - Last Friday at 2:56 PM

@Tron Is there same kind of logic layer to restricted assets?(edited)

Tron - Last Friday at 2:57 PM

@theking I like that idea.

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:57 PM

Quick question that is offtopic but I think deserves an answer because it was asked a couple of times earlier this week: Will unique assets get a reissuable function? To change IPFS.(edited)📷2

Tron - Last Friday at 2:57 PM

@BW__ Yes. Simple and, or, not and parenthesis - limited in length.(edited)

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:57 PM

@theking thats a good idea

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:58 PM

@Jeroz There is not a way to do that currently.

BW__ - Last Friday at 2:58 PM

@Tron That makes sense. Thank you.

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 2:58 PM

Just make sure your changes to the information have the same hash as the previous data and your golden. 📷📷1

Jeroz - Last Friday at 2:59 PM

Any plans on changing that, perhaps when introducing new types of assets?

boatsandhoes - Last Friday at 2:59 PM

i like that it cant be changed

corby - Last Friday at 3:00 PM

Thanks everyone!

theking - Last Friday at 3:00 PM

@Tron there was some info floating around about a 2nd later KYC solution ( from your recent podcast w Crypto Koala). Is that a separate solution someone is working on or part of this new concept?📷1

Tron - Last Friday at 3:01 PM

Starting with the introduction of messaging, every transaction can have an IPFS hash. Can be used as an public invoice, details about the transaction, etc.@theking The same new concept.

[Master] Roshii - Last Friday at 3:02 PM

Ok, we're done.

Steelers - Last Friday at 3:02 PM

How would Raven handle for instance a stock split?

BW__ - Last Friday at 3:02 PM

Are there sync concerns if a restricted asset logic layer is added?

Tron - Last Friday at 3:02 PM

@theking The KYC provider would store the KYC info, and send the Tag to an address with meta data that specifies that they're holding the KYC data. The KYC data would not be public, but could be audited.

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 3:02 PM

That way you could update information about the original unique asset with each transaction.@Steelers Just a simple re-issue of the asset

Tron - Last Friday at 3:03 PM

@bw_ The logic layer is only a small db that stores the meta-data about the Restricted Asset, and enforces the restriction in the consensus rules. Rule returns true/false.(edited)

RavencoinDev (Jesse/Wolfsokta) - Last Friday at 3:03 PM

Thanks everybody! I have to run.

Jeroz - Last Friday at 3:04 PM

I'm looking forward to the discussions to let this take shape. Thanks all! 📷📷4

Tron - Last Friday at 3:05 PM

@BW__ It would work very similarly to the way the units works now. Each asset has number of units and any transaction that makes it too granular (more satoshis) will fail in consensus -- even if it gets past the RPC checks.Signing off. Thanks all!!!📷9📷4📷9

Ravencoin Open Developer Meeting - 1/4/2019

[14:04] Hi everyone! [14:04] :dabbitwave: [14:04] Hey Everybody! [14:04] Hello 😃 [14:04] Sorry we're getting started a bit late. [14:04] Topics: SLC Meetup (March 15th) [14:04] 👋 [14:04] Roadmap breakdown - posted to github [14:05] IPFS (integration) [14:05] greetings 👋 [14:05] So, SLC Meetup on the 15th! [14:05] Great! [14:05] Hi! [14:06] Hi all — a special thanks to the developers and congratulations on an amazing first year!!! # [14:06] <[Dev] Blondfrogs> Hello Everyone! [14:07] We have a tentative agenda with @Tron , @corby speaking. [14:08] We would like to have nice walkthrough of the Raven DevKit for the meetup. [14:08] We are planning on hosting a meetup in SLC at the Overstock building on March 15th from 6:00pm-9:00pm. It is free admission, but there is a page on meetup.com where people can rsvp so that we have a somewhat accurate headcount for food. [14:08] sup guys [14:08] hey russ [14:09] We are planning on having a few speakers and have allotted a bit of time at the end for people to meet and greet each other. [14:09] can you guys link us to the page somewhere when thats available? 😄 [14:10] free food?! [14:10] todays topic? [14:10] yeah can we indicate pepperoni pizza [14:10] Sounds good to me @Jeroz Nothing ordered yet though. 😃 [14:10] only pepperoni pizza is served at true blockchain meetings right [14:10] :blobhide: [14:10] Absolutely. The itinerary just needs to be finalized and then I'll make a broad post about the rest of the details. [14:11] https://www.meetup.com/Salt-Lake-City-salt-lake-city-Meetup/ [14:11] 😭 so far away [14:11] West Coast! [14:11] @MTarget But there's pizza, so worth the travel time. [14:11] lol [14:12] I'll be watching the stream if its available since i'm from montreal/canada 😛 [14:12] Ah yes, I love $300 pizza 😉 [14:12] as long as I get to see your smiling faces @Tron @RavencoinDev then it's worth the time [14:12] We'll be there. [14:12] We'll be messaging additional details as they get finalized. [14:12] Greeting and salutations! [14:12] sup [14:13] Hey, $300 is considerably cheaper than 2 $3,700,000 pizzas. [14:14] Ok, switching topics... [14:14] yeah its a way to fly, [14:14] question is whether those piza's will be paid for in RVN coin or not :ThinkBlack: [14:14] Roadmap [14:14] It hasn't changed, just added some detail. [14:14] https://github.com/RavenProject/Ravencoin/tree/masteroadmap [14:15] nice [14:15] This now links to a breakdown for messaging, voting, anti-spam, and rewards (dividends) [14:15] will there be any additional RPC functionality coming in the future, thinking in terms of some functions that are only available in ravencore-lib [14:15] apologies if now is not time to ask questions, i can wait for later [14:15] "Phase 7 - Compatibility Mode" - that's new 😮 [14:15] The protocol for messaging is pretty well established, but the rest isn't in stone (code) yet. [14:16] can you give us details on compatibility mode? [14:16] In broad brush strokes. [14:17] The idea is to allow ravend to act as a daemon that looks like a single coin. [14:17] so ravend that only works with the bitcoin asset? [14:18] interesting [14:19] So you start it with an option to only work with a single asset/token account or something? [14:19] hmm compelling what is the reason for this? some kind of scale or performance? [14:19] ^ [14:19] Example: Configure ravend to listen for transfer RPC call for senttoaddress or sendfrom, but for a specific asset. This would allow easy integration into existing system for assets. [14:20] Only the daemon or the whole wallet UI? [14:20] yeah thats great, rpc functions dont allow us to do this yet, if i recall [14:20] or at least we depend more on ravencore lib [14:20] so like asset zmq [14:20] that's smart [14:20] @Tron it also sounds like it makes our life easier working with RPC, instead of core all the time for some functionality [14:21] if i understand correctly anyways [14:21] So you could run numerous instances of ravend each on their own network and RPC port, each configured for a different asset. You would need some balance of RVN in each one to cover transaction fees, then. [14:21] id be curious to know what all the advantages are of this [14:21] one more question, how would i decentralize the gateway between bitcoin mainnet/ravencoin mainnet? in the current RSK implementation they use a federated gateway, how would we avoid this? [14:21] it sounds neato [14:21] Just the daemon. The alternative is to get exchanges to adapt to our RPC calls for assets. It is easier if it just looks like Bitcoin, Litecoin or RVN to them, but it is really transferring FREE_HUGS [14:22] That makes sense. Should further increased exchange adoption for each asset. [14:22] hmm yeah its just easier for wallet integration because its basically the same as rvn and bitcoin but for a specific asset [14:22] so this is in specific mind of exchange listings for assets i guess [14:23] if i understand rightly [14:23] @traysi Gut feel is to allow ravend to handle a few different assets on different threads. [14:23] Are you going to call it kawmeleon mode? [14:23] Lol [14:23] I read that as kaw-melon mode. [14:24] same lol [14:24] so in one single swoop it possible to create a specific wallet and server daemon for specific assets. great. this makes it easier for exchanges, and has some added advantages with processing data too right? [14:24] Still keeping a RVN balance in the wallet, as well, Tron. How will that work is sendtoaddress sends the token instead of the RVN? A receive-RVN/send tokens-only wallet? [14:25] @traysi Yes [14:25] sendtoaddress on the other port (non RVN port) would send the asset. [14:25] This will be a hugely useful feature. [14:25] ^ [14:26] @Tron currently rpc function not support getaddresses senttowallet and this has to be done in ravencore lib, will this change you propose improve this situation [14:26] Config might look like {"port":2222, "asset":"FREE_HUGS", "rpcuser":"hugger", "rpcpass":"gi3afja33"} [14:26] how will this work cross-chain? [14:28] @push We'd have to go through the rpc calls and work out which ones are supported in compatibility mode. Obviously the mining ones don't apply. And some are generic like getinfo. [14:28] ok cool 👍 cheers [14:29] for now we continue using ravencore lib for our plans to keep track i just wondering if better way [14:29] as we had some issue after realising no rpc function for getting addresses of people who had sent rvn [14:29] @push | ravenland.org all of the node explorer and ravencore-lib functionality is based on RPC (including the addressindex-related calls). Nothing you can't do with RPC, although I'm not sure of the use cases you're referring to.. [14:29] interesting, so ravencore lib is using getrawtransaction somehow [14:29] i thought this may be the case [14:29] that is very useful thankyou for sharing this [14:30] look into addressindex flag and related RPC calls for functions that operate on addresses outside your wallet [14:30] thank you that is very useful, tbh i am not very skilled programmer so just decoding the hex at the raven-cli commandline was a challenge, i shall look more into this, valued information thanks as this was a big ? for us [14:31] Ok, things have gone quiet. New topic. [14:31] IPFS (integration) [14:31] GO [14:33] ... [14:33] <[Dev] Blondfrogs> So, we have been adding ipfs integration into the wallet for messaging. This will allow the wallets to do some pretty sweet stuff. For instance, you will be able to create your ipfs data file for issuing an asset. Push it to ipfs from the wallet, and add the hash right into the issuance data. This is going to allow for a much more seamless flow into the app. [14:34] <[Dev] Blondfrogs> This ofcourse, will also allow for users to create messages, and post them on ipfs and be able to easily and quickly format and send messages out on the network with ipfs data. [14:34] It will also allow optional meta-data with each transaction that goes in IPFS. [14:34] will i be able to view ipfs images natively in the wallet? [14:34] <[Dev] Blondfrogs> Images no [14:34] We discussed the option to disable all IPFS integration also. [14:35] @russ (kb: russkidooski) Probably not. There's some risk to being an image viewer for ANY data. [14:35] No option in wallet to opt into image viewing? [14:35] cool so drag and drop ipfs , if someone wanted to attach an object like an image or a file they could drag drop into ui and it create hash and attach string to transaction command parameters automatically [14:35] We could probably provide a link -- with a warning. [14:35] nomore going to globalupload.io [14:35] :ThinkBlack: [14:35] I understand that the wallet will rely on globalupload.io. (phase 1). Is it not dangerous to rely on an external network? Or am I missing something? [14:36] hmm [14:36] interesting, i suppose you could hash at two different endpoints and compare them [14:36] if you were that worried [14:36] and only submit one to the chain [14:36] You will be able to configure a URL that will be used as an IPFS browser. [14:36] Oh ic [14:36] you wont flood ipfs because only one hash per unique file [14:36] <[Dev] Blondfrogs> There are multiple options for ipfs integration. We are building it so you can run your own ipfs node locally. [14:36] <[Dev] Blondfrogs> or, point it to whatever service you would like. e.g. cloudflare [14:36] this is very cool developments, great to see this [14:37] Just like the external block explorer link currently in preferences. [14:37] @[Dev] Blondfrogs what about a native ipfs swarm for ravencoin only? [14:37] We have discussed that as an option. [14:37] @push | ravenland.org Considering having a fallback of upload through globalupload.io and download through cloudflare. [14:37] <[Dev] Blondfrogs> @russ (kb: russkidooski) We talked about that, but no decisions have been made yet. [14:37] yeah, i would just use two endpoints and strcompare the hash [14:37] as long as they agree good [14:37] submit tran [14:38] else 'potentially mysterious activity' [14:38] ? [14:38] if you submitted the file to ipfs api endpoints [14:38] Will the metadata just be a form with text only fields? [14:39] and then you would get 2 hashes, from 2 independent services [14:39] that way you would not be relying on a central hash service [14:39] and have some means of checking if a returned hash value was intercepted or transformed [14:39] i was answering jeroz' question [14:40] about relying on a single api endpoint for upload ipfs object [14:40] We have also kicked around the idea of hosting our own JSON only IPFS upload/browse service. [14:41] I have a service like this that is simple using php [14:41] we only use it for images right now [14:41] but fairly easy to do [14:41] Yup [14:42] Further questions about IPFS? [14:43] contract handling? file attach handling? or just text fields to generate json? [14:44] trying to get an idea of what the wallet will offer for attaching data [14:44] Probably just text fields that meet the meta-data spec. [14:44] ok noted [14:44] What do you mean by contract handling @sull [14:45] We won't prevent other hashes from being added. [14:45] asset contract (pdf etc) hash etc [14:45] <[Dev] Blondfrogs> also, being able to load from a file [14:45] got it, thanks [14:47] Let's do some general Q&A [14:48] Maybe just a heads up or something to look for in the future but as of right now, it takes roughly 12 hours to sync up the Qt-wallet from scratch. Did a clean installation on my linux PC last night. [14:48] Any plans or discussions related to lack of privacy of asset transfers and the ability to front run when sending to an exchange? [14:48] ^ [14:48] Is there a way to apply to help moderate for example the Telegram / Discord, i spend alot of time on both places, sometimes i pm mods if needed. [14:49] Any developed plans for Asset TX fee adjustment? [14:49] also this^ [14:49] @mxL86 We just created a card on the public board to look into that. [14:49] General remark: https://raven.wiki/wiki/Development#Phase_7_-_Compatible_Mode = updated reflecting Tron's explanation. [14:49] @mxL86 That's a great question. We need to do some profiling and speed it up. I do know that the fix we added from Bitcoin (that saved our bacon) slowed things down. [14:50] Adding to @mxL86 the sync times substantially increased coinciding with the asset layer activation. Please run some internal benchmarks and see where the daemon is wasting all its cycles on each block. We should be able to handle dozens per second but it takes a couple seconds per block. [14:50] @BW__ no plans currently for zk proofs or anything if that's what you're asking [14:50] You are doing a great job. Is there a plan that all this things (IPFS) could be some day implemented in mobile wallet? Or just in QT? [14:50] i notice also that asset transactions had some effect on sync time as we were making a few. Some spikes i not analysed the io and cpu activity properly but will if there is interest [14:51] we are testing some stuff so run into things i am happy to share [14:51] @BW__ Might look at Grin and Beam to see if we can integrate Mimble Wimble -- down the road. [14:51] yeees [14:51] @J. | ravenland.org work with the telegram mods. Not something the developers handle. [14:51] i love you [14:51] @J. | ravenland.org That would be best brought up with the operators/mods of teh telegram channel. [14:51] @corby @Tron thnx [14:51] @S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org we're planning on bumping fees to... something higher! [14:51] no catastrophic failures, just some transaction too smals, and mempool issues so far, still learning [14:52] @corby i thought that this may happen :ThinkBlack: [14:52] @corby x10? 100x? 1000x? Ballpark? [14:52] Definitely ballpark. [14:52] 😃 [14:52] 😂 [14:52] Is a ballpark like a googolplex? [14:53] @push | ravenland.org asset transactions are definitely more expensive to sync [14:53] yes yes they are [14:53] they are also more expensive to make i believe [14:53] 10,000x! [14:53] as some sync process seems to occur before they are done [14:53] @traysi ★★★★★ thanks for the suggestions we are going to be looking at optimizations [14:53] But, it is way slower than we like. Going to look into it. [14:53] i do not understand fully its operation [14:53] 1000x at minimum in my opinion [14:53] its too easy to spam the network [14:54] yes there has been some reports of ahem spam lately [14:54] :blobhide: [14:54] 😉 [14:54] cough cough ravenland [14:54] @russ (kb: russkidooski) we're in agreement -- it's too low [14:54] default fee 0.001 [14:54] ^ something around here [14:54] @corby yep we all are i think [14:55] waaay too low [14:55] meaningful transactions start with meaningful capital expense [14:55] though there is another scenario , there are some larger volume, more objective rich use cases of the chain that would suffer considerably from that [14:55] just worth mentioning, as i have beeen thinking about this a lot [14:55] there are some way around, like i could add 1000 ipfs hashes to a single unique entity, i tested this and it does work [14:56] @russ (kb: russkidooski) What would you suggest. [14:57] I had a PR for fee increase and push back. [14:57] Ignore the push back. 0.001 RVN is not even a micro-farthing in fiat terms [14:57] definitely around 1000x [14:57] Vocal minority for sure [14:57] ^ yep [14:57] @russ (kb: russkidooski) That sounds reasonable. [14:57] Couple hundred Fentons [14:58] right now an asset transaction is 0.01 of a penny essentially [14:58] 1 RVN would work now, but not when RVN is over $1. [14:58] yes exactly [14:58] Hi. Late to the party. [14:58] We are also talking about a min fee. The system will auto-adapt if blocks fill up. [14:58] im thinking tron, some heavy transaction use cases would fall out of utility use if that happened [14:58] so whats the thinking there [14:59] is there a way around the problem, bulked ipfs hash transactions? [14:59] 1000x would put us around btc levels [14:59] maybe a minimum 500x? [14:59] @russ (kb: russkidooski) Agreed. [14:59] <[Dev] Blondfrogs> It is time to wrap it up here. Everyone. Thank you all for your questions and thoughts. We will be back in 2 weeks. 😃 [14:59] Small increase and review. [14:59] Thanks all! [14:59] Cheers. [15:00] yeah sorry for 1 million questions guys hope i didnt take up too much time [15:00] cheers all 👍 [15:00] Thanks everyone [15:00] Thanks everyone for participating!!! [15:00] That is what we are here for [15:00] 100x-500x increase, 1000x maximum [15:00] 🍺

Is there anyway to get a private key off this wallet?

I have over $10k stuck in this dumb wallet. I have tried two phone but the dumb thing wont sync and/or send.

I have been in contact with Bread for WEEKS but they gave up and just said sorry, maybe wait for an update...

This wallet sucks and doesnt even work to send Bitcoin. Is my $10K gone? Can I get a private key off this horrible wallet?

F.Y.I. Syncing to UnitedBitcoin UBTC main net and performing desposits on exchange...

I'm sure some of you guys noticed that the compiled github sources https://github.com/UnitedBitcoin/UnitedBitcoin.git wont be able to connect and sync to the mainnet at all. I do think this is/was intentional, but we can do it nevertheless.
We know their mainnet is alive since they have a block explorer showing miners, blocks and transactions already. (https://www.ub.com/explorer). Also they hav an electrum client out.
I was able to compile and sync node to main net by adding their electrum indexing nodes as core nodes, turns out they have a core daemon running on the same machines. The IPs are hardcoded from their electrum client wallet (https://github.com/UnitedBitcoin/electrum/blob/mastelib/servers.json)
urlelcm1.ub.com urlelcm2.ub.com urlelcm3.ub.com ... urlelcm10.ub.com 
You can add them via cli:
./ubc-cli addnode IP_HERE:8333 "add" 
or by .conf file directives:
addnode=13.229.172.24 addnode=13.115.21.150 addnode=13.125.17.179 addnode=13.229.165.229 addnode=18.217.144.236 addnode=18.217.168.29 addnode=18.217.220.64 
But here's the hitch: After that you are fully able to sync and import your private keys BUT you will only see dust like outputs of yours spendable on the main net. I already did a test transaction to an exchange that supports this shitcoin: https://www.btctrade.im/ubtc/ (WARNINIG: as berepere pointed out this exchange wants KyC not on registration but after the fact at withdrawal)
The bigger UTXO of yours have been transferred to a 'foundation address' 31rZdrTpN57Wbfhg7xTPxeFGjEQaMBjxoo (check this thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2607140.msg27402337#msg27402337 )
https://www.ub.com/exploreaddress?address=31rZdrTpN57Wbfhg7xTPxeFGjEQaMBjxoo
This means, you wont be able to access your 'currently stolen' funds. They say they will release the Phase2 airdrop funds back again at 24th Jan but who knows.
So anyway, I just wanted you to know how to sync and run your node to be prepared for whenever this thing becomes tradable and accessible. Since there is already one exchange that supports this with deposits, its good to be prepared for when this goes 'live'.

Multisig Wallets Review: Coinkite alternatives and why they're lacking.

I have used Coinkite's multi-sig wallet pretty much exclusively for the past year and a bit and was pretty sad to see them shutting down as they're really the only mutli-sig wallet I like. This post is to go over alternatives and basically lay out where they come short in the hope that somebody who understands what I'm looking for can guide me in the right direction.
The strength of Coinkite in my opinion comes in two parts: Key creation and Co-signing page.
Key creation: Coinkite gave me three options for my keys:
  1. I can give the key to Coinkite and when I submit a withdrawal it has a checkbox that I click and that key signs the transaction.
  2. I encrypt the key with a passphrase and Coinkite holds the encrypted key. Upon submitting a withdrawal I enter the password and the that key signs the transaction.
  3. I hold the key and can sign the transaction myself.
One thing that I've noticed is that there are tons of wallets that say they're multi-sig but don't offer any more security than a normal wallet. For most of the multi-sig wallets i've seen if someone gets access to your login credentials they can access the funds. With the method used above, they would need my login credentials, the passphrase used to encrypt my key (if i used that option) or the keys that I keep in cold storage myself. I'm confident that wont get compromised. The wallets that claim to be multi-sig but you can't even hold the keys yourself, what's the point???
Co-signing page: This page provides the perfect setup for approving a transaction. You can send the page to anyone and if they have control of one of the keys they can sign with it, no matter what generation method they used. If it's a single user, they can approve the transaction from that one page. Very easy for all parties involved. I've noticed wallets like copay are great for wallets that multiple people use, but aren't very convenient for a single user that wants to use mutli-sig.
And above all they allowed for anonymous use. You don’t have to tie an email address, phone number, name or anything to use their wallet, unfortunately very very few of the multi-sig options allow for that today.
Existing multisig wallets and their shortcomings:
The above wallets do many things very well and this post isn’t to smear them or anything like that, it just shows how far ahead of the market coinkite was and how that void needs to be filled. I think it’s unfortunate that (to my knowledge) there aren’t any anonymous multi-sig wallets that give me multiple options to generate/sign keys and that work well as a shared and personal wallet. If anyone knows of a wallet that matches what I’m looking for please let me know.
I’ll be trying some Chinese wallets soon and seeing if I like any of those. One with some promise is bither. If there’s any interest I can post a follow up.

How Long For Initial Sync to Complete

I transferred a significant amount of Monero from my Bitfinex wallet to a wallet I generated when I first installed CLI. I was able to generate a wallet and check its zero balance and decided to send it to my wallet under my control so I wont lose it if they get hacked or something. When I kept checking the balance for 30 minutes it didnt even say that the balance was locked, just zeros when the amount is over 7 Monero.
So I tried typing refresh command and it says "starting refresh... Height 60602/61001" and nothing else is happening when I restart both monerod and monero-wallet-cli. In monerod it says "Synced 63201/1392834". Is that the number of blocks I have downloaded? When its all done that Monero should be in the wallet right? What do the numbers in the CLI mean and am I correct the numbers in monerod mean the number of blocked I have synced?
Thanks for any help, I just started learning to do command line programs for a CS class and have always used electrum or the online exchange wallets for Bitcoin storage so this is all pretty new to me.

Not sure what to do bitcoin wallet help

Looking for a little advice/help. Little over my head here. I have my bitcoins on my laptop using bitcoin core. I opened it 2 days ago and had a little over 5 in there. It was doing its regular sync but going very slowly as usual. I downloaded the latest version of Core and it is syncing back 7 years. Ok great I'll just walk away from my laptop for a week and check back in.
But it's not working. It keeps getting up to 11% then it stops saying I need to shut the program down. I've done this over and over past 2 days.
Got the idea to use a different wallet and was following this guide to recover my 5+ Btc. http://bitcoindaily.org/bitcoin-guides/how-to-recover-bitcoins-bitcoin-core-wont-sync-export-private-key/
Only issue is when I click receiving address and look it up, it says I have 0.00027 Btc.. I know this is incorrect.
So I'm sorta lost, syncing isn't working, scared to abandon core cause it says I have way way fewer coming then I actually do.
Any help?!?!

What is your experience with Jaxx? (ios)

I currently have bitcoin in coinbase/gdax. I dont plan to trade and would like to just keep them somewhere safe. With all the attention coinbase is getting im afraid of it being hacked. I dont own enough to justify a hardware wallet so for the time being I wont be getting one.
What is your experience with Jaxx as a wallet on the iphone? Ive read a few reviews on different sites and they all seem quite positive. I have a couple questions though.
What happens if i lose/wipe/break my phone? I noticed they have a chrome extension which I would use on windows.. does that mean it would sync whatever I have on my iphone?
Thanks for all the help this is a bit confusing!

(CBX) Bullion Founder Chris "eLambert" walks me through an update on our Telegram.

As i've stated in other posts I am not as tech savy as some people but was advised to upgrade my vault by the founder of CBX. This is a log from Bullions Telegram Channel https://t.me/joinchat/FkBLVEimXQscVn1cetdd4g
I am walked through an update from 2.4.3 vault to 2.4.4 and this will be similar steps when the 3.0 Vault comes along.
elambert, [18.04.18 10:54] [In reply to Nicjobi] u should update to 2.4.4
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:55] I honestly am a little afraid
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:55] I've ran the 2.4.3 and don
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:55] am afraid of losing my coins haha
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:56] I want to though. Just want to make sure I'm doing it correctly. I want to check out the Alpha
elambert, [18.04.18 10:56] copy your wallet.dat and paste it into a folder on your desktop and/or usb first so you have a backup
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:56] Like I've stated before I have heard of bitcoin for years and not to much a techy
elambert, [18.04.18 10:57] as long as u make a backup, u are safe and will not lose your coins
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:57] Okay I listened to von and have it on the cloud as well
elambert, [18.04.18 10:57] good deal
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:57] and will save it to my usb as well
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:57] one sec
elambert, [18.04.18 10:57] back it up and then go ahead and download 2.44
elambert, [18.04.18 10:58] take notes. im sure there are others that are scared of the process as well so a guide of the steps u took could be a valuable tool to help others
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:58] I'm pretty nervous it's a lot of money for me lol
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:59] I'll right it down
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 10:59] almost paranoid enough to send it all to cryptopia and then back
elambert, [18.04.18 10:59] well dont do anything ur not comfortable with. do u have a second computer u could use to create a wallet and transfer something like .1 cbx to so u can try the process there with better peace of mind?
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:00] haha My second computer is a desktop from 2006
elambert, [18.04.18 11:00] lol
elambert, [18.04.18 11:00] well the wallet.dat file is all of ur coins
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:01] I am going to be buying a new set up because I really believe in this
elambert, [18.04.18 11:01] as long as u have that, u have ur coins
elambert, [18.04.18 11:01] u save a backup of that
elambert, [18.04.18 11:01] and then download the new v 2.4.4
elambert, [18.04.18 11:01] most likely u wont even need to use ur wallet.dat - ur just making a copy in case somethign goes wrong
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:01] okay I saved the .dat to usb and then resaved on the cloud as well
elambert, [18.04.18 11:02] save on your desktop too
elambert, [18.04.18 11:02] its password protected correct (encrypted)
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:02] I'm afraid of saving on there cuz of hacks?
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:02] My vault has a password
elambert, [18.04.18 11:03] if someone can get to your desktop, then they can get to ur roaming folder that houses the wallet.dat
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:04] I do windows lock anytime I leave my house
elambert, [18.04.18 11:04] this is why u encrypt with password
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:04] and run the vault
elambert, [18.04.18 11:04] and use the 'unlock for staking only' option
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:04] okay so if someone got my .dat file they'd still need the password right?
elambert, [18.04.18 11:04] correct
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:04] oh yeah I do that :)
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:04] that makes me feel a lot better
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:05] I actually run the vault on my laptop because it's newer a year old. okay so save it on here as well and then I will download 2.4.4
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:06] saved. now I just have to find the vault link
elambert, [18.04.18 11:07] https://github.com/cryptogenicbonds/CryptoBullion-CBX/releases/tag/2.4.4
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:07] These are all things I will post on Reddit and my twitter for the masses.
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:07] @elambert2014 do I have to delete 2.4.3 first
elambert, [18.04.18 11:07] [In reply to Nicjobi] no
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:10] I downloaded it
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:10] now close my 2.4.3?
elambert, [18.04.18 11:11] yes
elambert, [18.04.18 11:11] then launch 2.4.4 through the .exe
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:12] I guess I'm a good test dummy for this stuff lol. I closed out the vault and then clicked what I thought was the new one
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:13] says 2.4.3 so maybe I clicked on the wrong one but I name 2.4.4 Bullion so I don't understand. I guess this will help out for when you guys get a bunch of newbies coming :)
elambert, [18.04.18 11:13] close it
elambert, [18.04.18 11:13] go to your downloads
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:13] closed
elambert, [18.04.18 11:14] and find 2.4.4
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:15] found it!
elambert, [18.04.18 11:15] u got it launched then?
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:16] hmm it is just the set up file. maybe i downloaded it incorrectly
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:16] redownloading
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:16] oh shit 2.4.4

Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:17] okay all my CBX are there. Should I now let it sync and resave .dat files?
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:18] Vault looks similar to 2.4.3 is that correct
elambert, [18.04.18 11:18] let it sync and then go ahead and unlock it for staking
elambert, [18.04.18 11:18] yes, it is just the newer version
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:18] will do
elambert, [18.04.18 11:19] ur wallet.dat will not be different until it has new transaction
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:19] Everything looks good to me at this point.
elambert, [18.04.18 11:19] so u dont need to resave it right off the bat
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:19] okay i will wait for a stake
elambert, [18.04.18 11:19] nice work, congrats on the updat!
elambert, [18.04.18 11:20] u will do a similar thing to update to v3.0 when it is release
elambert, [18.04.18 11:20] just remember to always back up your wallet.dat first and u are golden
elambert, [18.04.18 11:20] ;)
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:21] Thank You for the help @elambert2014 I should screen shot this walk through it wasn't that difficult in the end.
elambert, [18.04.18 11:21] ok, im off to lunch. be back later
Nicjobi, [18.04.18 11:22] Nice! Enjoy!

How to recover a corrupted wallet.dat file?

I was syncing my Bitcoin Core(didnt know i could use better wallets at the time) and used one of my keys to receive some bitcoins, later on, my computer just crashed,when i restarted, i had to redo al of the bitcoin core syncing again,and the wallet just got corrupted,any leads on how to repair it?
EDIT1 : i'm trying to use pywallet to access the wallet.dat,no success by now,it simply can't open the file.
EDIT 2 : I think is also worth to remind you that whenever i try to open BitcoinCore with the corrupted wallet,it renames it to a .bak
EDIT 3 : i openned the file on a HEX editor, there is a huge chunk of nothing in the middle(understand it as pure zeroes)
EDIT 4 : trying to recover the file using blockchain.info import function wont work.

Forgive My Noob Question in Advance. Would Appreciate All of Your Knowledge.

Any help would be appreciated in this matter as I am ultra new to this process. It is only $25 worth so it’s not the end of the world, I could just open up a new account I guess.
Thanks in advance.

Espers Q&A With Cryptocoderz 7/5/17

7/5/17 Q&A Live with Cryptocoderz on the official Esper Discord https://discordapp.com/invite/hhYP8yT

  1. Masternodes
  2. POS & Patch
  3. Exchanges
  4. Sites on Chain
  5. Whitepaper Update & General Questions
  1. Masternodes: Q: Masternodes would be managed by individuals who would stake their tokens ? A: No masternodes are managed people who want to participate in contributing hardware like mining to the network for running one or multiple sidechains that do the heavy lifing, the system wouldn't balloon out of control either with proper chain management so it's almost like a different way of mining since of course masternodes get a little more on whatever they stake but have to lock a certain amount of coin to participate, well that's the old method anyway we're going to be changing that just have to see how it can be logically be done stabily. Q: Masternodes newbie here, i read somewhere that esp masternodes are unique, yes? if so, can you explain why esp is unique? A: They'll be in charge of one or more (operator selectable) sidechains that provide the function for some of the upcoming features that everyone's excited about. Same concept as servers are with the internet. Hope that made a little sense. Q: Will there be rewards for selecting the under supported features or would the code just dictate which feature the chain needs the most processing power at any given moment? A: You can select what side chains you want to run, they'll be labeled, and yeah you'll get more rewards for the more you assist with operating Q: 25 mil to run a masternode, right? A: That was the last voted on number Though many want to change it
  2. POS & Patch: Q: So where are we at with pos? A: As far as PoS goes we're running some more tests on anything as this is a rather large change to the PoS method everything has to be made sure that it's stable. Otherwise we've corrected the issue with the PoW/PoS ratio of generation of blocks and added in the new skew curve for both PoW and PoS, no more possible stalls even with insane hash changes and it will keep the blocks well shuffled Q: Why is the stake weight fixed? A: well there's nothing wrong with the stake wieght to begin with. it's just that the way the reference system is done causes issues with high load. which we're now all seeing. So there's simple ways to correct the issue but it could cause unforseen problems so we've just been running local net test runs of it to make sure things will continue work as they should after the PoS implementation is modified. It's a fairly significant alteration to its function There's going to be a small fork in the next week or two (toggle date will be set with the new wallet release later tonight) but it will be a good while out for everyone to have time update to it. This will patch VRX and turn the skew curve on Next will be the PoS update With the new update we re-arranged some of the source and also have redone the way that network, syncing and staking information is displayed as well. With the source re-arrangements we've also added toggled debug log prints for those who want to get techy Q: the high load issues for staking, is that why people do not see stakes for weeks at a time? A: Yes There are a lot of people on the network and with the way currently the network handles stakes and weight isn't suitable for the load There's already a solution :smiley: Q: And this solution is scalable with network growth right? A: Well yes, we described it in the last get together :smiley: where wieght is reset after staking Q: But if there's a large amount of people staking, then taking into consideration the number of blocks, is it possible that the larger stakers re-mature before the smaller stakers get any? A: No as it's all done by time and there's a 2 hour time out period, could make it more but that's the standard period already in place and it should do fine. Adjustments can be made to finalize anything as well if it comes down to it but it's a fine line, you don't want to have the wait too long otherwise if net usage is low it could cause the chain to run sluggish but as long as there's few connections it'll be fine. Working correctly this will make those with smaller amounts that have been staking forever (as the weight just compounds almost infinitely) will stake before larger wallets regain any weight Also reseting the weight will be nice to keep overall weight down and the PoS thread lighter
  3. Exchanges: Q: Any news from more exchanges? bittrex and others? A: Haven't spoken with bittrex, we submitted the new form though So just need to go talk with them again and see As soon as we talk with them we'll be back to let everyone know what they said That's if they decide to give us the time of day But they've at least talked to us before
  4. Sites on Chain: Q: Sites on chain is the gem of espers right now, I see a decentralized network of merchants coming from it. Being able to put forth product in an anonymous way is very appealing to many long term bitcoin users. I believe if you start laying down the principles of site on chain with espers and show progression, you will have the resources made available to you to run the network that you envision. This is were I see most users interested in espers ATM A: Correct and that's why the demo of it and the documentation is important. Just had to correct a few current issues first :smiley: Everyone hates the PoW/PoS ratio And hates the stake wait, not weight Lol Getting blocks to mix properly is a good idea Beyond being the way things should be Q: If I saw a product with a picture and a price with a button that says buy now on the espers desktop wallet that would be amazing On the site on chain section Simple but profound A: Well all you'd have to do is load an e-commerce site or what not Once you store the data on the chain you're done, you can store the whole thing on it Then just have the client render it Q: Would it be quick or a 5 min dl Without masternodes it would be slow with a Heavy network right? A: Should be honeslty be very quick, as you're talking about a p2p network which usually can push some decent bandwidth when needed and besides this will all be raw code that's rendered by the wallet Yeah without doing masternode operated side-chains it would be difficult to manage Doing it this way would make the system responsive And easy to handle Also it would be nearly impossible to bog it down And even if one system slowed down it would be localized to that one system Because each task would be handled by a different chain Modular Any kind of slow down in any area could be easily addressed
  5. Whitepaper Update & General Questions: Q: What's the ETA on the Whitepaper? I was under the impression it was going to be completed by this week. A: Yes it is, Holidays came up so things got pushed back a couple days Sadly I also was dragged into things lol Q: What's your biggest hurdle that you have encountered right now? It's a loaded question I know A: Really it's currently a few people out there in crypto that don't like what we're doing for whatever reason, constant flak, fud and false accusations. But it's to be expected at the same time Q: Espers is written in c++ is that going to change in the future? A: Currently there are no plans to change it yet. A rewrite for native web versions is a thought but we need to have built the initial system first and deployed it before taking it and doing other things with it Otherwise we'll just spread ourselves and people will be dissapointed Q: In the future, how will this network be governed? I'm assuming CryptoCoderz wont be developing this coin for the rest of their lives, so how will changes to the network be made? I'm wondering if it'll be a democratic coin or a centralized coin. A: Well, you're talking years in the future? That's a good question. Would be nice to have a large enough community to continue like BTC, but without the endless pointless bickering Have to go linux style as btc did, open source, community run
