    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.

    Which values may I put into the threads (default 99) and scantime (default 99).

     

    In which address BTC will be transfer when a block be found. How will I know that a block has been found?

     

    And I have a 7970 Saphire Radeon.

     

    Tell to me how to configure my client to solo mining, please.

     

    Thank you very much.

     

    Main problem, you need to get the new client. Bitcoin Scrypt Version 1.1, as per your screenshot you are still on 1.0.

    I've having some issue with the new version.

     

    When I deleted all the roaming folder and let it re-sync it only shows 52 blocks.  That is a problem.  As far as I knew the upgrade wasn't supposed to be a reboot.  Added the difficulty is all over the place... one minute it's .4 then it's .007.

    I'm not sure you mined for nothing.  All that I know is that when I re-downloaded the blockchain it's only showing 54 blocks.  I mined a few blocks to a new wallet.dat file and they were accepted.  

     

    I loaded up the old blockchain (I kept those files in another folder) and the client won't sync.

     

    Not sure what's going on... all that I know is that something isn't right.

    The balance shows zero because it's only seeing 54 blocks and you've mined none of them.

     

    I would copy the wallet.dat file with all your coins, just in case.

    Can you please Omega answer these questions, or explain exactly how this should work?

     

    * BTC-S has the same address form like BTC-SHA. So you can send coin to your original BTC-SHA address, however it will never arrive anywhere. Or it will arrive to someone elses wallet if he has that "non-existent" address.

    * Omega said that BTC-SHA and BTC-S wallets are merged. Okay. Now can you tell me please, how much BTC and BTC-S do I have exactly in my wallets after 30-30 transactions?

    * 1.1 is a reboot? Why? What happened that coin needed a hard fork?

    * Pool wallet has 30k on 1.0, now shows ZERO. Did we mine for nothing?

     

    Thanks.

    Why did difficulty change to 0.11 from 0.45 in one block? It should change after 2016 blocks, shouldnt it?

    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.
