    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.

    So I guess I should have read this thread before I built and ran the client.  You might want to do something about the fact that it uses the same folder as the original Bitcoin for all the configuration files, blockchain and WALLET, all of which got nuked by running this client.   Lucky I have a backup of my wallet, but this is seriously BAD.   Your next client should definitely address this,  although not sure how you're going to get existing BTC-S wallets and configs into the right place or be able to tell if they are from BTC or BTC-S.  You at least need to have a WARNING IN BOLD LETTERS somewhere so that people don't get screwed by the client.  

     

     

    I was wrong, see my post below

    Wrong.  I just did it.  This is on ubuntu.  Cloned the git repo.  make -f makfile.unix.  it builds bitcoind. run it and it puts all its files in ~/.bitcoin, the block chain was replaced, the wallet.dat was replaced.

    ok ! thx for reporting that.

     

     

    Omega6 & CaptChadd may want to take notice of artiface's compiling review/result ^ post #197

    OK I retract my previous remarks.  I'm an idiot and all the bitcoin stuff was in another user profile...    ~/.bitcoin  is the current users bitcoin folder and I forgot that I had switched users and thought it had replaced all the data.

     

     Sorry for causing a ruckus.  After reading through the thread you link it makes sense that the data would be merged and show up as a foreign network.

     

    I will do the test again and confirm that it just merges the data.

    ok just post what you find with btc2/btc data, when compiling  it would be odd to lose blockchain or loss of critical files

    Is it Dreamwatcher you're referring to? I remember seeing the thread that he was having an issue with the sync and that's why the block explorer was halted.....

     

    Chicken and Egg scenario huh, he needs the sync to create the block explorer, but the explorer is needed to fix the sync lol... Still if my novice skills can get the wallet to synce, I'm sure he could make it happen as well. Have you heard any information from Dreamwatcher?

     

    I sent Omega a PM on Oct 5 and it has not been read yet. It reads:

     

    I regret after some thought, I cannot put a Bitcoin-scrypt explorer up on CCE at this time.CCE is built on the philosophy of being an independent and neutral source of information about a coins block chain. I cannot in good conscience use a precompiled block chain along with the difficulty of getting peers. So far after using the precompiled block chain and syncing, I am still only getting one of your addnodes as the only node connected to.This is by no means a reflection of you or bitcoin-scrypt. I assume you have ran into a technical issue that was quickly fixed by using a pre-compiled block chain.Please let me know when the client/daemon is patched to the point where it can build the block chain from fresh using multiple peers. I will then put a explorer up on CCE ASAP.

     

     

     

     

    So that is where it stands right now.  :)

    It is someone else who is going to make a block explorer for this coin, so CaptChadd can find the block where the hard fork was created to fix the sync issue.

     

    Then the client will be updated to fix this issue and then the block explorer will be updated and then released.

    Dreamwatcher,

     

    I understand you do not want to use a precompiled blockchain.... but I thought you were making tests explorers??? I understand you not wanting the bounty, nor wanting to use a precompiled blockchain, but can you atleast make your test one for CaptChadd to be able to find the source of the problem, then when solved you can download a full blockchain from all the peers like you want to.... either way you seem to be the link that can get the stone rolling for now.

    Bitcoin 2.0 scrypt version is very interesting.

     

    Will the public buy this coin?

    Will they trade it as aggressively as they trade Bitcoins?

    Will small business start to accept Bitcoin 2.0 instead of the original version of Bitcoin?

    The blockchain download is available in the info thread.

    Bitcoin 2.0 scrypt version is very interesting. Will the public buy this coin? Yes I think so..possibly at a faster rate than when bitcoin first started.Will they trade it as aggressively as they trade Bitcoins?..Volatility is rife at the moment so yes I think so. Will small business start to accept Bitcoin 2.0 instead of the original version of Bitcoin?

    . I think they will, because you can only see what happened with btc sha and apply it to this btc scrypt version. I'm not sure about accepting instead of .. but maybe accepting as well as ..is more feasible and more likely to be accepted by both types of btc holders.
