    BITCOIN SCRYPT - BTCS
     
    Bitcoin sCrypt is the decentralized alternative to Bitcoin-core and is the first cryptographic currency to utilize CryptoVoter's decentralized blockchain voting to decide development issues and shift power away from developers and mining pools to coinholders themselves.

    Can you send me your pool wallet address or any new address from the client you are using please? I am going to send you some coins and track them, see if everything is how it is supposed to be with the blockchain. I like to double check things.

     

    Sure, this is a brand new address of my pool: 12R6dZhyDZHP6G9eXfFq2QQNciQd3LT1UU

    OK, I have sent a unique amount to your address and with a miner fee of 0.1 to get it top priority. We really need a block explorer so badly, I might see if I can sort one out.

    HI everyone,

     

    The source code shows the changes, I am just going around places explaining what is happening. Not being able to have a thread on the other Bitcoin forum is a little bit of a pain and does slow things down.

     

    All that has changed is that the difficulty retargets every 2 block using the average global hashing of the previous 4 blocks.

     

    Now the pool went down for some random reason for a few hours, with makes me think someone might have tried an attack of some kind.

     

    I will fix this and get everyone on the same chain, if you are not, I will post a link below with the blockchain from the Bitcoin Scrypts server.

     

    Just download this and put all the files in your appdata folder, KEEP your wallet.dat file and bitcoin.conf file.Server's Current Blockchain : https://www.dropbox.com/s/6qhi2j9zi0z4g3p/Put%20all%20files%20in%20Bitcoin%20Appdata%20Folder_Bitcoin_Scrypt_Blockchain.zipNo matter what has happened to the chain, if we all run of the servers blockchain, which is the correct chain, then whatever happened will be reset.

    Came back from dinner and found 50.00 credit with digiture mined.

    Noticed the client was not updating so i closed it and done step described above.

     

    Now i see 1 transaction, 0 credits and when i go in transactions tab it's completely empty :

     

    Suggestions?

    Did you ever mine with version 1.0 of the client?

    no i just downloaded the client tonight as the pool was offline (about 5 hours ago) and started mining but noticed that it was stuck at 77 block downloaded.

     

    Checked here and saw the post so made a backup of the folder and updated the files.

     

    What is strange is the transaction is listed on the summary of the client but there is no trace of it elsewhere.

    Did you put the seed node in the conf file located in the roaming folder?

    What pool correct?Here http://btc2.botpool.net - 16095 blocks!Here http://btc2.cryptominer.net - 16326 blocks!The new version of a wallet can't be synchronized, why?Update Additional Nodes on the main page!

     

    Looking at the Bitcoin Scrypt seednode, this in the right one  http://btc2.cryptominer.net - 16326 blocks!  maybe the other pool is having orphan problems or something, or mining on a wrong share difficulty maybe.
