    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.

    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.

     

    If I were you I would rename the upgrade urgent thread and create a detailed instructions thread about how to upgrade.

    That would help the new users for sure, the pool operators should be ok with it though, as they can run a pool which is hard work.

     

    All the users had to do was delete the 1.0 client, download the 1.1 client and then run it. I hope to not do another upgrade in a while put I can feel checkpoints coming on soon.

     

    Also the website as a small and simple section which explains the new update changes and what effect it has on the coin.

    This pool is still using the old client http://btc2.botpool.net/index.php?page=statistics  I removed them from the info thread after someone reported it to me.

    this is what my conf looks like:

    rpcuser=1rpcpassword=xrpcallowip=127.0.0.1server=1rpcport=30200gen=0addnode=212.48.67.126

     

    This is correct.  Remove the two addnodes.  As far as I know, the one listed is the only addnode.

    Manybe forward the rpcport and p2p port in your router?

    With a router everything is normal, the necessary ports are open!The wallet of the first version was synchronized normally!Wallets of other coins are synchronized normally!After installation of the new version of a wallet and change of conf it ceased to be synchronized! There are no active connections! I will try on other computer!It is possible to eat additional addnode?

    Why did you have to change your conf?

    "addr" : "95.18.152.214:52293",
    "addr" : "62.219.234.143:57031",
    "addr" : "68.51.36.7:64464",
    "addr" : "84.189.29.9:33450",
    "addr" : "5.150.212.73:62966",
    "addr" : "68.51.36.7:49214",
    "addr" : "91.125.162.174:63365",

     

    Try some of these and remember the p2p port is 30201, that does not need configured but it does need be an open port too. Thanks

    Something is wrong again. Global hashrate is near zero, no blocks found for an hour. And have no connections. :huh:

    Honestly, if you are open to changing the algo, I would change it to Scrypt-jane similar to lotterytickets (this coin of the moment in my head that uses scrypt-jane).

     

    Why, because even the GPU is somewhat a specialized device.  CPUs really aren't.

     

    If you really want everyone to be able to mine, then IMHO CPU is the way to go.  Think of it like [email protected] http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/ people run that program in the background to help discover messages from space, etc.  

     

    I would actually love to see a CPU only Bitcoin where everyone had the same shot.  Over time it's going to be a lot easier to get mass people mining when all they need is a CPU.

     

    I will admit, I'm not an expert will all the different algos.  Scrypt is good but after awhile this coin will turn into Litecoin which is so difficult now that I view it on the same page as Bitcoin.

     

    CPU only also = botnets & If you cant afford 1 middle/low range GPU then your CPU most likely suck alot also..

    Yeah I can see the connections but it is not syncing which means probably someone with an old client is trying to attack and fork the chain. There are going to be a lot of hater of this coin out there.I am away for a few days but am setting up three extra node for this coin, to minimise this from happening.

     

    Nothing is going to stop me expanding this coin.

    True.  Botnets are a factor.  I know some people who have excellent CPUs and crappy GPUs.  When they order their computer from Dell then get the i7 with the crappy GFX card because the rep at Dell tells them, "if you aren't doing graphics or animation work then you don't need a good graphics card".  Though, I will admit even the crappy graphics cards are becoming usable as they get cheaper and cheaper.

     

    My main point was that there are more people with CPUs then GPUs.  A truly global cryptocoin would be something everyone could mine... where there's a CPU there is a miner.

    Downloaded the latest 1.1 client.

    Still having problems synching the block chain - stuck somewhere at 16400 blocks remining, with no more than 1-4 active connections. Any working public nodes available?

     

    Currently connected to these:

     

    "addr" : "178.49.118.233:30201","addr" : "82.196.3.83:30201","addr" : "91.125.162.174:30201","addr" : "84.189.16.194:30201", 

    but no blocks being downloaded... Stuck at block 77 for well over 12 hours and accross several restarts both on linux and windows client. The linux client is stuck at block no 4 ;-(

    You have to delete version 1.0 and replace it with 1.1.  Then you have to delete the roaming folder except for the .conf file and the wallet.dat.  Once you do that you have to download the blockchain in the link provided and place it in the roaming folder.  Use the addnode from the info thread and you should be good to go.
