  1. Your current cpid doesn't match with your "old" one ?...Your cpid in the screenshot is = 610a567aeeab933902544fe36a1f46ae but your backup config cpid = a8658cf4f7bfb9599659f3f068d7ef1d Under which cpid does your boinc run ? or is running under now ? Both the cpuds have such a low magnitude/grc that it will take forever and a day to get any payment.... Try to fix the one with most grc in it, and join a pool, all you need to get GRC from a pool is a synced wallet and wallet address...
  2. The missing a is a bug in the software. Should be fixed soon. So it seems your CPID and wallet address is good. If you don't have a matching public/private key, then that is a problem. In very simple terms your private key (your "secret" key, not to be given to anyone as they could use is to take all you grc) is used to encode "things" and your public key (which can be handed out to anyone) is used to decrypt "things" and by that knowing it's you... Do you have the exact error you get when using the backups pub/priv key pair ?
  3. Seems like your gridcoin conf is missing public and private keys. You said you had to restore a wallet backup ? try to find one where in gridcoinresearch.conf there are lines privatekey<yourcpid>=<the key> publickey<yourcpid>=<the key> and restore that... edit: best bet would be a tad after you advertised your beacon....
  4. did you detach the host from the project by accident ? that will give you negative credit...
  5. The only thing compressing a drive should do is increase your cpu usage and maybe slow down write operations a little. Read operations might actually be faster but with a SSD I doubt it.
  6. https://grcpool.com/about/sparc I think this pretty much explains it....
  7. bittrex posted on their twitter a while back to get into the waiting list for a new account.. https://twitter.com/bittrexexchange?lang=en I created a new account on their support site... then used this: https://support.bittrex.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=114093958552 took like 3 days for them to create an account for me...Worth to note tho, I never got the account creation mail, instead "logged" in and proceeded to recover my password. which WILL take you out of withdrawls for 24 hours. all loops and hoops done.. I got my BR account i 3 days...
  8. I'd use exchanges to do that, far safer for both/all parties involved... Use for example (and this is not intended as preferential to any of services involved), coinbase to transfer fiat, the get btc or eth there, then transfer that to Bittrex and convert/trade to GRC. Sure you'll pay some fees going that route but it's easy...
  9. Does your wallet say staking ? the green up arrow , if you hover over it, how long does it say to stake ? (it's an estimate mind you) how much grc do you have in your wallet ?
  10. There's your problem... Your wallet conf is missing the public or private key. Do you happen to have a backup of gridcoinresearch.conf from around the time you advertised your beacon ? Default gridcoinresearch.conf location Windows: %AppData%\GridcoinResearch\ Linux: ~/.GridcoinResearch/ MacOS: /Users/USERNAME/Library/Application/Support/GridcoinResearch/ look for a folder walletbackups, find the proper date AFTER you advertised your beacon, open gridcoinresearch.conf-xxx date look for a line publickey<your cpid>=xxxxx a long line of characters privatekey<your cpid>=xxxxxx a long line of characters If you do, shut down your wallet and edit the file, add the both the public key and private key from the backup, then restart your wallet... edit: And don't post your privatekey anywhere if you happen to have it. Just yes or no will suffice.
  11. The developers of gridcoin asked the exchanges to put grc in maintenance mode due the forking problems we had a few weeks back. The latest wallet seems to have fixed this. It will take time for the exchanges to verify and test this themselves before making grc available again as they will loose money otherwise.
  12. As long as your wallet is synced your good. No need to change anything. The real change comes when you advertise your beacon.
  13. Run your wallet on only 1 computer. Running it on more that 1 will mess things up for you. As sportbiker stated you need to have a decent amount of grc in your wallet to solo mine. 2k is a working amount but don't expect to stake too often with 2k. Not to worry tho, your research credit will accumulate up to 6 months. To build up your grc, I'd join grcpool.com, use it as an account manager on all your pcs running boinc and save your grc address to grcpool.com start recieving payments. The front page has excellent videos on how to do this. Once you've built enough grc, make sure you have boinc installed to default path on the pc you're running your wallet on and it's set up as the user you have on all your pcs. Wallet will read your data from boinc default folder. Then fully unlock your wallet and send out a beacon from your wallet. On wallet go to help->Debug window->console and type execute advertisebeacon. There will be a small transaction sent from your wallet. Once it's sent you can lock your wallet and unlock it for staking only. The wallet will modify your config files at this point, it's important to back them up after this. Wallet will do this automatically but have a separate backup on a thumb drive or whatnot. Then you need to wait, the next day is most likely. Check your wallet and once the up arrow turns green it means your staking. Every time you stake you get paid pending reseach rewards + interest on your balance. Also it's worth to note that it takes 16 hrs for any added funds to count towards staking balance. Oh and move all your cruncing pcs to your boincstats account once you've advertised your beacon and make sure you are a member of teamgridcoin on all the projects you're working on that are on the whitelist.
  14. How to configure YIIMP is really OT for this forum... From what I briefly browsed the git for YIIMP, it's pretty simple setup tho, just need to modify the config files, install it, populate the sql, start the stratums etc... Aside from a proof of concept tho, I'd not run a pool on a single VPS. Run your frontend on one, the statums on others and wallet(s) on still more VPSes, and one for the sql. define very strict firewall rules between the machines themselves and allow only the absolute minimum necessary anywhere else. AND learn how the pool works, how to set it up properly, not just the bare minimum to get it running but running effectively and securely, browse through the source code so you have a firm grasp of how it works, you'll be hacked in less that a day if you do not. (edit) No offence intended, just common sense... for the GRC part... Did you register at www.grcpool.com ? If not, do that first. If you did then go to your boinc client and select tools->Use account manager In the address type https://www.grcpool.com Your username and password are the same that you used when registering. Once you have set grcpool.com as your account manager, go to the grcpool site, and under Hosts you should see the host you registered. Using the dropdowns attach project(s) you want to crunch to your host, modify resource shares if you need to and click save. Then back on your boinc client select Tools->Synchronize with grcpool.com, wait about 30 seconds and do that again. Now your connected to grcpool. Then open your grcwallet, select receive on the left and copy the address there. If you didn't install the wallet go to gridcoin.us. scroll down a bit and under Gridcoin Downloads select a wallet for your os. Install it and run it. It will take a long time for it to start the 1st time. Now back to your grcpool control panel, click your name on the top right , this will return you to the main window. Click grcaddress under earnings and paste the address you got from your wallet. All set...
