    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.

    Works. Diff. seems to have skyrocketed to 450K+  for awhile, back to 10-80K on average! I was going to cry if difficutly kept going up before I could mine anything...

    The difficulty has changed from version 1.0.  Omega6 changed the difficulty to every two blocks with an average of the last 4 blocks - or something like that.  You can check the info thread specifications.  I listed the information the developer provided.

    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.

    If it's stopping on block 77 then you didn't add the blockchain file to the roaming folder.  You need to download the blockchain file and replace what is in the roaming folder with what is inside that file.

    From where it is possible to load blockchain file?

     Could you please deal with payments ? Thanks.

     

    Not yet. I need to know if everyone is on the correct blockchain. I dont want to be blamed if someone loses his coins beause of a wrong address. Had too much trouble with this coin in the past weeks, im not risking anymore.

    And how long do we have to wait? Saying that waiting for everyone it`s kindda blurry because you don`t know "the amount" of everyone.

    I think max. a few (2-3) days. Lets wait for Omega6 to confirm that everything is fine with the chain. :)

     

    Thanks!

    People may stay away from the pool, its up to them. Being careful is a benefit in the long term, I learned that several times. :)

    And if the chain is not fine and payouts gets fuckbugged do you think that will draw people to the pool?

    Better to wait 2-3 days until things are fine then to loose 2-3 days of mining...

    I am away for two two days but checked via Remote Desktop.The chain that this pool in question is mining on is the correct one.We can test it.I have been mining on that pool. Send my account a payout or send a random payout to a few people too see if they get them.I will cover these amounts if lost.Thanks
