Title: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: rbdrbd on May 05, 2013, 06:24:09 PM
I wanted to put together this info thread on BitBar to help others learn about it (note, I did not release the coin). Please feel free to reply to it and suggest anything that could be added or modified. I've modeled this page after the LiteCoin information thread here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=190199.0).
    
   
The [BTB] BitBar Information Thread
    
        
    What Makes BitBar different than other AltCoins?
    
    BitBar is a cryptocurrency designed to be extremely rare and thus hold a larger store of value per unit than conventional cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Litecoin.
    
    It is based upon the Novacoin codebase which uses Scrypt as the hashing algorithm and the fast continuous exponential difficulty adjustment/reward of PPCoin. This makes it highly ASIC resistant, meaning specialist mining equipment built into chips is very costly to manufacture efficiently. (thanks mr_random)
    
    Technical:
    * Proof of Stake + Proof of Work (based off of Balthazar's Novacoin code as well as the RareCoin and Fairnova projects)
    * No premine like Novacoin has been accused of having
    * Dynamically adjusting difficulty and reward calculation
    
    Psychological:
    * Ultra rare
    * Is the first altcoin that is trading at a higher value than BitCoin per unit (correct me if I'm wrong)
    * Novel "bar" concept -- breaks from the "coin" idea. Bar concept holds meaning in people's heads as inherently more value than "coin", i.e. "gold bar" vs "gold coin"

BitBar "Premine" allegations

It is always helpful for new coins to be analyzed and vetted out by the community. In doing this, subSTRATA has brought up some potential issues with BitBar's launch. Let's break down his allegations and put this to rest.

1. 60 blocks after the genesis block were premined

This was indeed true, as a testing error. See here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=193519.msg2028446#msg2028446) for more information, as well as the tester's admission of error. Those bitbars are being donated as a bounty towards the exchange. See the official launch topic here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=195372.0).

2. Difficulty for the first 735 blocks was so low that it can't even be shown on the explorer

Several coins launched that exact same way:
  * Feathercoin launched with difficulty 0
  * Terracoin launched with difficulty 1 (just as low as 0 in effect)
  * Chinacoin launched with difficulty 0
  * Novacoin launched with difficulty 0

Let's look at the Feathercoin launch, for example:
  * Exactly 24 hours after launch (2013-04-17 21:48:40) 2,898,850 Feathercoins had been mined
  * There are currently 6,415,200 Feathercoins as of 5/5/13 at 3:20PM EST. This means that around 50% of the total Feathercoin supply as of 5/5/13 was mined in the first 24 hours.
  * 20,000 Feathercoins were mined in the first 8 minutes.
  * Feathercoin also started with difficulty of 0, just like BitBar.

Beyond Feathercoin, 2 million PPCoins were mined in the first day.

This makes BitBar's launch very similar to other launches of established coins with a trading market behind them.


3. For the premine period, 59.644201 BTB were generated in little less than 4 minutes

See point above. Current BitBar difficulty and block reward is adjusting predictably to handle the load.

4. For the difficulty under 0.001 period excluding the premine period, 600.324139 BTB were created in little more than 20 minutes

See point above.


So, what's it worth?

Well. The value of any cryptocurrency (and any currency in general) is really what people want to pay for it. However, RustyShackleford1950 has a good analysis of potential BitBar value using historicals from a few other coins:

If we want to estimate the exchange value let's compare it against litecoin:

Litecoin:
Network Hash: 16,759,472 kH/s
Total Supply: 17,392,400 LTC
Current value: 3.14 USD/LTC

Bitbar:
Network Hash: 700,000 kH/s
Total Supply: 2,800 BTB
Theoretical value: 815 LTC/BTB.

Which seems insanely high (24BTC/BTB). And it is, it doesn't take into consideration adoption, reputation, age, etc.

So compare it to one of the lamer coins of recent times, feathercoin;

Feathercoin:
Network Hash: 1,133,753 kH/s
Total Supply: 6,505,600 FTC
Current value: 0.22018 USD/FTC

Bitbar:
Network Hash: 700,000 kH/s
Total Supply: 2,800 BTB
Theoretical value: 315.8 FTC/BTB.

Which would value bitbar at about $70 USD/BTB (0.65 BTC), which seems very low (probably due to the problems feathercoin currently has).


So there's a rough high and low point for the exchange to base the price from.

My personal feeling is that around 10 BTC/BTB is a fair price IN THE LONG TERM. Short term price, anywhere between 1.5BTC/BTB - 2.0 BTC/BTB.

Creator said that it accidentaly mined 60 and then gave them away, this is true and here's the wallet: http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/address/BNu1hLYzku3Cw5GfQwEjVgF6F38L6jh1Ge


However as soon as the coin was released this happens:

And look at this wallet: http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/address/BKvC5MojhFX9UVDbMhEcpS2T1WYDxHRkCP

Oh look, right after the release one single handendly mined the next 140 blocks alone, then moar people joins and after 28 minutes he already owns 250 bitbars.

That's not pre-mining at all, just sheer luck  ::), he was just lucky to mine around 250 BTC in 20 minutes after selling.

Nice 25k USD profit for a weekend project and some insider to announce the coin (Remember creator wants to remain annonymous)  ::) ::) ::)

Here's another finding, that wallet transfered almost all his coins to this other address, I think he has some good stash of coins in different wallets with different miners:

Ymer, so now you have a problem with people mining the coin AFTER the coin has been publicly announced and it's fair game for anyone to mine? Dear God.

Everyone knows the hour or two when a coin launches you get a ton of coins at a silly rate. It's the early adopter advantage. While you are studing Blockchains, look at the most recent coin favourite - Feathercoin, approximately 200k created in the first 2 hours. This is one reason why you get people with hundreds of thousands of Litecoins, PPCoins etc.

Good to see an information repository, nice work. I'm looking forward to see what the future holds for BitBar. Promising specs and a unique concept as far as ALTs go in one package. If coins like FC and CHN can gain traction I see no reason why BitBar won't, as it's actually something new.

Haha.

I 'missed' the boat too. I didn't get in until money supply was over 2,000.

But it still caught my interest as the next big player in the game.

And even though I missed the boat I'm not going around spreading FUD, expressing self stupidity, calling it a scam, or trashing it even though it is 'profiting' me.

I put a good amount of mining resources towards this, because I believe in it. I put a lot of resources in FTC, and I didn't even feel it was as promising as BitBar is.

That 60 BTB Premined?
It's going toward a bounty for an exchange.

Also, even if the dev kept 60 BTB to himself, personally I would be fine with that, that is less than 2% of the money supply anyhow.

@ymer, even you are mining it. Isn't that irony?

Even you believe BitBar has a real future. If you didn't, you wouldn't mine it.

Maybe you are trying to discourage others from truly valued currency (Since you and that other pile of incompetence trashed that other currency before a +500% gain), or you are trying to devalue the currency by spreading false rumors lies and statistics. So then what, you get it low so you can buy?  :D

You guys are amusing.

If you read the release thread one guy jumped in with 22MH/s and got a lot of them. He gave some away and sold some, which is probably why that address no longer has 200BTB.

That's curious that you don't call it pre-mining:

Official announcement on this board:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=193519.0 Time: 05:30:04 PM

Announcement: 17:30:04
First Block mined: 17:32:10 (Difficulty 0.00) (Reward 1 Bitbar per block)
First Hundred blocks: 17:33:24
First 200 blocks: 17:36:16
First 300 blocks: 17:39:42
First Thousand blocks: 18:01:22
First 2000 blocks: 18:40:45 (Difficulty 0.012) (Reward 0.528202 per block)
.
.
.
.
Current Block 6000 (Difficulty 15.291) (Reward 0.164687 per block)

So from the time that it was announced to the time someone has time to read the announcement, download the client and configure the .config you need at least 15 minuts, by that time 500 Bitbar were already in the hands of the creator and the people that was aware before the announcement.

No Pre-mine?

Nice attempts at justifying the scam, but they won't work except with complete retards. It would be cool to see judge reaction on your saying "I killed the guy because
that other killed some other guy earlier and ended (seemingly) unpunished".

If you are going to criticize the difficulty at launch, then it's a larger issue with the launch of many/most altcoins (early adopter advantage). Why single bitbar out? The premine appears to be an honest mistake and the guy isn't profiting off of it.

No, only to remove useless posts like this. This is as useless as me saying "BITBAR IS THE NEXT GOLD 2.0, BUY NOW!!!". No solid information. subSTRATA to his credit has put some information forth, and I've addressed it to the best of my ability. He did have some good points. Yes, there was a small premine that has been honestly addressed from what I can tell (bounty is available for the exchange), and the difficulty at launch is similar to other altcoins like Feathercoin.

Why set difficulty at 0 if the purpose of the bitbar is to be very rare and hard to get? Creator couldnt have been so naive  ::) ::)

Let's look at some other coins:

Feathercoin launched with difficulty 0
Terracoin launched with difficulty 1 (just as low as 0 in effect)
Chinacoin launched with difficulty 0
Novacoin launched with difficulty 0

etc

Are you seeing a pattern yet? Please stop trolling

The difficulty for Feathercoin was also at 0 at launch. In fact several coins launched that way. 3 million Feathercoins were mined in the first day (there are currently 6.4 million FTC as of 5/5/13). 2 million PPCoins were mined in the first day. This makes BitBar's launch very similar to other launches of established coins with a trading market behind them.

So you KNEW the problem had occurred with other launches - so did nothing to fix it?

Smells more like a poor attempt at justifying an effective pre-mine than a genuine confession of ignorance/incompetence.

Here's how you should launch new coins:

1.  Announce the launch and provide downloadables at least a day before it gos live.
2.  Start off with a reasonable difficulty.

Not exactly hard to work out.  But of course then there'd be no pre-mine to sell off - which would defeat the whole object of starting a new coin I guess.

Now you mention it yeah - seems like ALL pump and dump coins start off with tiny difficulty and what amounts to a premine in practice.  Well spotted!

I agree with you there 100%. I did not launch the coin, however. We can put the evidence out there, and let the community and the larger market decide. I do like the BitBar concept a lot, and it has technicals and psychological aspects to it that the other recently launched coins did not have (which, may not be saying much..feathercoin/chinacoin would have never become what they are had human greed not been human greed. At least BitBar brings something new to the table).

But no people posting scam every 2 minutes in those topics (apart from novacoin I admit).

I don't know. I'm not the coin creator, I'm not even a large holder of coins, I bought the ones I have not mined them. It's a solid concept and hasn't done much different in terms of launching from most other crypto coins.

Difficulty is still going up and up, and BTB have been selling today for over 1 bitcoin like yesterday... If the price drops a ton so be it, if it rises so be it... the free market will decide  8)

To many people that you ask, BitCoin itself is a scam. A bunch of geeks making money off of running software on their computers. I think what we are witnessing is the evolution of altcoins. BitBar I believe is a step forward from FeatherCoin/ChinaCoin/ByteCoin as it brings something new to the table. Not just a simple pump and dump clone.

Why set difficulty at 0 if the purpose of the bitbar is to be very rare and hard to get? Creator couldnt have been so naive  ::) ::)

Let's look at some other coins:

Feathercoin launched with difficulty 0
Terracoin launched with difficulty 1 (just as low as 0 in effect)
Chinacoin launched with difficulty 0
Novacoin launched with difficulty 0

etc

Are you seeing a pattern yet? Please stop trolling

Indeed. All scams.

But no people posting scam every 2 minutes in those topics (apart from novacoin I admit).

I don't know. I'm not the coin creator, I'm not even a large holder of coins, I bought the ones I have not mined them. It's a solid concept and hasn't done much different in terms of launching from most other crypto coins.

Difficulty is still going up and up, and BTB have been selling today for over 1 bitcoin like yesterday... If the price drops a ton so be it, if it rises so be it... the free market will decide  8)

Agreed. It's just a courtesy to people new to crypto-currencies to state our opinion int he thread so they investigate and make their own (informed) opinion. The name is just so similar that I can imagine it is really confusing to them.

Other then that: carry on.

Not just a simple pump and dump clone.

O, but it is.

Honestly I think you are just jealous and in disbelief at the high prices BitBars are being traded at. If you were honest with yourself inside you would admit that. There's no logical reason to spam FUD in BitBar threads when most other coins which launched the same way received no flak about these things.

The future price? Who knows. Speculators will continue to speculate, driven by supply and demand. BitBar could be a distant dream but eternally remembered for the high initial price, in 6 months time, or it could continue to make the haters hate  8)

I'll let you guys have the last word, I have things to do! I'm just a guy who bought a few and loved the concept!

I've been having decent luck with the binarycoins.eu BTB pool, although it's a little slow going. I'm intrigued by this coin since people seem to be spending a great deal of btc (i.e., real money) on them.

That being said, I'm not sure if there will be room in the market for BTB and MNC, as they both seem to fit the bill of being "BTC but rarer."

I *do* think that if bitcoin becomes truly mainstream, there will be room for a more valuable version and a less valuable version. Say something like FTC/LTC trading at around $1 (ultimately), BTC sitting around $50-$100, and BTB/MNC sitting around $500-1000 or higher.

Whether this is good or bad remains to be seen. Network hash rate is steadily climbing, there is a creat deal of variation between the prices of other alts, and the pricing of bitbar. I made a comparison in a previous thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=198958.msg2080780#msg2080780

Quote
This makes the total value of all PPcoins 47,901BTC, the total value of all feathercoins around 13,222BTC, and the total value of all novacoins around 12,043BTC. Currently, if we go by the exchange rate on bter.com (which is in beta and not open to the public), you've got a total value of all bitbars around 1,860BTC.

Once again, this seems to be undervalued by about a factor of between 5 and 10. Putting the true price of bitbar around 3BTC/BTB, to 5BTC/BTB. Perhaps higher, though I'd like to be conservative at this point in time.

Right now, bitbar is in beta trading mode at bter.com, one of the lesser known exchanges. Perhaps in a few months bitbar will be added to btc-e, a slow and steady rise to acceptance is what's needed.

Network hash rate (Gh/s): 0.732 (estimated - (Last updated: 2013-05-09 02:38:38 UTC/GMT))

Hash rates seem to be increasing quite quickly at the moment. Probably due to the addition to the coin comparison. If bitbar remains on bter.com in beta then I would expect the hash rate of the network to bring profitability down.

If bitbar is added to the default list on bter.com so that the public can access it, then prices should rise to keep it quite profitable to mine. There seems to be a lot of big miners who are betting on it.

Then again, if bitbar gets added to btc-e, we might see some serious shit.

BitBar "Premine" allegations

It is always helpful for new coins to be analyzed and vetted out by the community. In doing this, subSTRATA has brought up some potential issues with BitBar's launch. Let's break down his allegations and put this to rest.

1. 60 blocks after the genesis block were premined

This was indeed true, as a testing error. See here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=193519.msg2028446#msg2028446) for more information, as well as the tester's admission of error. Those bitbars are being donated as a bounty towards the exchange. See the official launch topic here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=195372.0).


I can improve the logo (turn into vector graphic for unlimited scaling without resolution loss) or redesign it with banners and slogans for some of that bounty.

Interesting. Notice the slowly and steadily decreasing profitability on the coinchoose chart.

* Bug in some part of the software?
* Attack on the network (doubtful, considering the number of confirmations required)?
* Something else?

My bet is on a bug somewhere in the wallet code, if both the blocks aren't being paid out on, and the coin sites are showing bogus values. I've started my wallet back up and am tailing the debug log now.

Just a quick note:

Once POS blocks become more common, any BTB total network hash rate number will be at best a guess until a solution is implemented that counts POS blocks correctly in the formula,


I will be implementing and testing a solution on CCE this week.

Basically the POW/POS explorers will start recording the POW difficulty of every block while it is the current block and the POW difficulty is available.

This will allow for accurate calculation of total network hash rates because the POS blocks will be counted in the formula as if they had been solved by POW rather then POS.

Wasn't the original idea that you could someday swap BTB for physical gold?  If we can get someone with gold to offer it in exchange for BTB on a website...this would become a much more viable crypto.  Until then, we'll see, but my hopes are dwindling.  I might even be willing to run the website if someone has gold to back it, legitimately.

How frustrated and foolish did this make you feel? Even though you were right all along!! And still they are not listening!!?
Bitbar is to the crypto-community, as bitcoin is to that person you told, when you first discovered Bitcoin.


I think the problem with the coin profitability sites is being fixed,  I read about this earlier and it seems that the Bitbar developer has registered to this forum, and is getting actively involved, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=152515.msg2425717#msg2425717 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=152515.msg2425717#msg2425717)

I did see a massive failure the other day, in which sites were reporting the payout as 0, and the pools appeared to have mostly stopped at that time as well.  I really want to see this develop into something more...but I'm not holding my breath.  Did anyone ever get a paper wallet site up?  That'd be a really nice step in the correct direction.  That and getting this on more than just BTER and cryptsy...if BTC-e grabbed on...we'd have something pretty nice...but again, breathing normally, as I don't see this happening soon.

This part of the forum has been hijacked by a team of scammers, only here to get rich quick from the continual release of their useless coins, which are quickly dumped at the fool's expense.

Nothing can go on here anymore unless they are directly involved.

It's such a shame that new ideas fall upon so many ignorant selfish ears here. It's very sad.

Not everybody has their bitbar clients connected.
I think not everyone Know the 5% RoI on PoS.
That makes PoS difficulty is very low.
Low diff is why even small transactions can make PoS blocks after very small amount of time, and the reward is minimal.
rounding is up to 2 decimals, rounddown.  Super small rewards ale below rounding are not paid.

ex:

reward of 3.432353 is rounded to 3.43
reward of 3.439865 is rounded to 3.43
reward of 0.009234 is rounded to 0.00

 


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread **UPDATED**
Post by: A L I E N on June 19, 2013, 09:55:06 PM
I had asked him about this problem because I began getting zero reward PoS blocks like the following:

Code:
Status: 15 confirmations, broadcast through 38 nodes
Date: 6/17/2013 11:18
Debit: 0.00 BTB
Net amount: -1.58312 BTB
Transaction ID: 6a2daba54518ebb46851b4bfd006cbb1d58ed0a085831be0bd67938a57f797fa

So the update will have a fix for the PoS blocks that were rounding down to zero (those less than 0.01)

UPDATE 0.4.2
Posted Saturday, 2013-06-22
Everything worked OK with the 0.4.1 update, but it was just a first stage of a 2-step update that couldn't be done in single step to avoid risk of forking. Second phase was not planned so quickly, but there was another issue found buy no one else than the PoS Creator : Sunny King. thanks to his help and support, we was able to fix potential instability issue in the future. It was originally found and fixed by Sunny King in Novacoin, and was already implemented in BitBar, but He found we needed a different approach.
0.4.2 :
Sunny Kings's fix for P2Pool blocks modifier desynchronisation issue
Second stage reworking  of alert system. Now updated.
There is a mandatory redownload of the blockchain

You can still sell them for 0.06 BTC per coin, so there are still people mining which means the coin definitely isn't dead.

It's a far cry from the 1.5 BTC per BTB that people were paying the day the coin came out. That price puts the market cap of all ~4,000 BTB at a somewhat respectable ~$24,000, but it is slowly dying. There is a such small volume that the price is lazily declining.

Unfortunately for those that purchased the first day (~2,500 BTB minted the first day), at a peak of 1.5 BTC per BTB, the market cap of the first day was ~3,500 BTC or $350,000.

That's all lazy math, but to answer your question; no, bitbar isn't dead, but it is dying.

It has always been more profitable to mine than bitcoin, and for the past few weeks it has been more profitable to mine than litecoin.

Combined that with an active dev, and it's going strong. It's not one of the coins that is just pumped out and the dev forgets about.

I think the interest rate is 5% per year fixed for POS, if that's what you meant. Your bars are eligible for generating POS blocks after 30 days, just like other proof of stake currencies.

0.4.3 is the latest thought it's semi-unreleased. You can still download and use it though.

In terms of difficulty, just open up your miner and find out, or look here, the biggest bitbar pool: http://btb.ltcoin.net/main.php

Difficulty is currently 10.59. Coinwarz is very wrong.

So basically the bitbar network forked in at least 2 networks. Lovely.

I'm out of this mess. My miners spent days on a fork without any warning.
I've setup my system so that any github changes are detected and I'm warned. Apparently it isn't enough and the different client versions aren't even compatible between them.

So basically the bitbar network forked in at least 2 networks. Lovely.

I'm out of this mess. My miners spent days on a fork without any warning.
I've setup my system so that any github changes are detected and I'm warned. Apparently it isn't enough and the different client versions aren't even compatible between them.

If you can't trust the coin to maintain a single network it's worthless.

Uh, no, nothing has forked. Coinwarz has fucked up it's calculation. That's it.

One question please...

I've sent money from http://btb.ltcoin.net to my BTB wallet 2013-06-29 (06:22:39) and 2013-06-30 (14:24:56) and, at the moment, this movements doesn't appear in my wallet.

Is this normal? How long it takes to get a transfer?...

Information about those transactions can be found here:

During the last update one of the pools did not update correctly and was on its own fork. 
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=186539.msg2574646#msg2574646

The dev worked with them and got them back on the official block chain.   If you do not have the same last block on your client as the block explorer you are off the reservation.  I have confirmed that all the pools and the exchanges (Bter and Cryptsy) are on the the official chain show in the block explorer. 

So for the last time, check your client/wallet to see if it is on the last block as the block explorer: http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/chain/BitBar
If it is not, you need to delete all you /appdata except the wallet.dat and re-download the official block chain.

Ok, another problem:
The wallet freezes after launching. How to fix this?

close the bitbar wallet and run the bitcoin wallet/client once.  Then it should start correctly.  Seems strange but it works..

Unfortunately if you solo mined the answer would be yes.  But not if you were on a pool, then your withdrawals would show up properly in your wallet.

I have a serious problem here with btb client. I have requested payout from http://btb.ltcoin.net/ pool two days ago. More than 18 btb. My wallet downloads blocks, synchronizes with network, appears as synchronized and than it downloads block again. It's somehow looped. Payout does not appear in my wallet. Nothing helps. I have deleted all files (I've made back up of *.dat file), downloaded 4.03 version of client unzipped to the folder and nothing. The strange thing is that when I download 4.03 the version shown in client is v0.4.2.0g32a928e-beta. Any ideas what is wrong?

BTB already forked once and part of my miners happily mined it for days on the wrong fork (fortunately I never put 100% of my miners on altcoins). You may still be on this fork or a new one.

Updating to latest git didn't make any change so I considered this altcoin dead (if the newest client can't tell it's on a fork there's really no point to the coin).

Make sure your client matches the block height on btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com

If not, back up your wallet through the client,save file someplace else and move the copy in your data directory also. Clear everything out of your data directory except your .conf file.

In your conf file add:

Code:
connect=69.164.204.19

This is the Cryptocoinexplorer IP address. Connect means your client will only talk to that node.

Start your client up and wait for it to sync.

Once synced, shut the client down and change the inserted line above to:

Code:
addnode=69.164.204.19

addnode means it will try to use that node, but look for other nodes as well.

move your wallet back and see if this works. You may have to use the rescan or repairwallet option to fix the wallet.


Two reasons for sync problems:
1. Too long as period of time has passed since the last block was solved. The client assumes it is out of sync.

2.One of the reasons for constant cycling occurs if the client/daemon still has the network prefix code from the coin it was forked from . This is represented by 4 2 Digit hex numbers, and allow clients to discern P2P messages from their chain regardless of port. Unfortunately this needs to be fixed at a developers level and requires a hard fork.

Make sure you are on the latest client/wallet: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4om3KFtcvGYaW9tMUtZYmJWVlk&usp=sharing&tid=0B4om3KFtcvGYV3NGdmdOZEZ3c2s

Delete everything in the appdata/roaming/bitbar folder except the wallet.dat file.  When you start the wallet it will re-download the block chain.

No, 0.4.2 was originally planned as a hard fork update, however the dev aborted this idea in favor of maintaining integrity of the Bitbar block chain.
All the pools/exchanges/block explorer are on the official/original block chain.

Delete your chain, and re-download it. That's the problem. It's not forked. This happens with all coins, including bitcoin. There's also a console command (though I can't recall it) to re-scan.

Also, check on the block explorer to make sure the bars are there, if they are, you're good, you just have a problem with your pc that it isn't syncing right.

Sorry but you don't know what you are talking about: my miners were generating blocks on the fork (you know, blocks you can't find in block explorers with coins unsellable on exchanges) so I'm pretty sure there was one. This is why I was pissed off: this coin wasted my time.

And no, it doesn't happen with every coin (I should know: I have around 20 coins configured). The so-called "problem with [my] pc" was bitbar, nothing else.

You didn't read what I said. I didn't say there was never a fork, I said that there wasn't a fork in the last few days. There are only 2 active mining pools, and neither of them were on a fork for the last two weeks.

Yes, also BTB's Proof of stake design coupled with its difficulty adjusting every block and 520 confirmations make it a much more secure crypto than some of the others.  With attacks on coins like FTC, maybe people will appreciate this more.

Update 4.2, the one that said "mandatory redownload of the blockchain", was originally a fork update.  The largest pool at the time did not update and fork with most of us so it continued down the original chain.  At that point the dev decided to abort the fork because the majority of the hash rate was on the original chain.  The dev worked with the pools/block explorer/exchanges to ensure that they were all on the original longer chain.   Myself and others that immediately updated to 4.2 with the fork and solo mined lost any mined BTB when we re-synced back to the original chain.  Now anyone updating or using 4.2 will connect to the correct original block chain and the fork is gone.  To answer your question, the only reason BTB forked was because the dev created it and that is the only way it could happen again.  I let the dev know that we could assist with coordination if a hard fork was required in the future to avoid a repeat of this.

Update 4.2, the one that said "mandatory redownload of the blockchain", was originally a fork update.  The largest pool at the time did not update and fork with most of us so it continued down the original chain.  At that point the dev decided to abort the fork because the majority of the hash rate was on the original chain.  The dev worked with the pools/block explorer/exchanges to ensure that they were all on the original longer chain.   Myself and others that immediately updated to 4.2 with the fork and solo mined lost any mined BTB when we re-synced back to the original chain.  Now anyone updating or using 4.2 will connect to the correct original block chain and the fork is gone.  To answer your question, the only reason BTB forked was because the dev created it and that is the only way it could happen again.  I let the dev know that we could assist with coordination if a hard fork was required in the future to avoid a repeat of this.



Thanks, now I know what happened and that the community is reacting well which are good points. The only remaining cloud: how is the dev reacting and communicating? Will he make sure that the github HEAD on the master branch is running fine and has been tested properly?

I like BITBAR for the fact that the ASIC unfriendly script mining limits hardware to GPU's that can adapt to rapidly changing difficulty as well as hash script,  ADDED to the fact that 520 confirmations prevents people speculatively mining it for a short term sale - because the maturation is long enough to make it risky in terms of the market risk.   I have BIT BARS but am holding them for a longer term profit.   I ended up mining ON THE ABORTED FORK... I lost about 2 bitbars... Oh well it is good to know it wasn't an attack on the network.    Yes Please avoid hardforks unless absolutelynecessary THANKS

I've been mining on the p2pool pool for about 24hours, and as of yet to see my address on the payout tab of the site. Is this normal?

You will also not have to worry about getting high-difficulty stuck and being unable to complete a transaction or get to a lower difficulty like CHNcoin, Craftcoin, Hypercoin and others.  Also the 10 min block times will prevent forking when there is too much network hash on one pool such as what recently occurred with Bottlecaps.

Hello all,

I'm fairly new to BitBar and so I've been reading mostly information from the original website (bitbar.biz I think it was).

I guess from a miner's perspective this is just another scrypt based coin, but I'm not sure if you can just use stuff like pooler's cpu miner to mine it? Also the pools that are mentioned on the web site seem to be not responding. Is this coin dead?

One thing that struck me was how the dev wanted this coin to have a value that was considerably higher than bitcoin itself. Long term estimation around 10 btc, short term 1,5 btc or thereabouts. So why is it trading at 0,0000whatever, like most of the other altcoins?

Not looking to criticize the coin or the dev, just seeking some background information really.

-Michael

All problems: checkpoint to old and fork, are due to dynamic checkpointing off - I stopped  vps for BTB zero-client and redirected dns-lookup to some pool.

I synced my home client to longest chain and i suggest doing the same :
connect=btb.ltcoin.net, or at least addnode=btb.ltcoin.net

DNS first node search has been redirected to some pool ,soon dns will be updated to btb.ltcoin.net as it proves to be the fastest one.

I run dyn-checkpointing on my private PC now, until I get my hands on some VPS.

Post by: CaptainAK on September 28, 2013, 08:59:11 PM
When I just looked, it seems that http://btb.ltcoin.net is at block #6443. The block explorer at http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ is at block #26166. Which is the correct one? Because I am pretty sure more than 6443 blocks have been mined since May 01, 2013. It also looks like http://btb.ltcoin.net has mined ALL of the blocks on their chain.

UPDATE:  Looking closer at the blockchain, it appears that the blocks http://btb.ltcoin.net is solving now, were actually solved back in May.

Look at the info for block 6443 at this Explorer link.  http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/address/BDkaH1mPfYsGSgYLuxzPsHiCgiMBeqJeD2

btb.ltcoin is on its own chain and been so for a week or whatnot
at stat page every block got validity just 1 more than the last.. meaning all coins on this chain is from btb.ltcoin.. nothing else PoW nor PoS

WRONG!!!!!
btb.ltcoin.net is NOT on the correct chain!  All the exchanges and other pools are on the same as the block explorer.

The following are all on the same as the block explorer and NOT diggers chain:

Here are some nodes for the correct chain:

addnode=23.92.25.46
addnode=37.229.117.57
addnode=84.200.4.218
addnode=88.198.184.231

Hey guys, I've thrown the OP source up at pastebin: http://pastebin.com/6e8kdGNt

Unfortunately, I don't have the time to read through all the posts and make any relevant updates. If anyone wants to do this and give me the updated post (via pastebin, etc) then I can update the OP from that, just send me a PM when you do this to make sure I get it.

Try using this node... the one from CCE

tried this but can't even get the thing to sync or find any connections....

The new node for the CCE is this:

Make sure to change 'connect' back to 'addnode' once you are synced
Also add these nodes:

Here are some nodes for the correct chain:

Actually the market cap is between 7-24 BTC depending if you are basing your calculation on the Bid or Ask price.  Good thing you have no authority to officially declare a coins death lol.  A coin only dies when transactions cannot be completed. This will not happen with BTB since it could continue POS blocks even if there was no POW hash.  There are still plenty of POW miners hashing on BTB though.  A savvy trader could easily double up trading BTB at these levels.

I have something that will determine whether the coin has any chance of proceeding.

I have some btb. I mined it many moons ago. I was going through old wallets and found it. I tried to send the coin out and it has remained stalled without any confirmations. The block chain cannot be updated because the check point is too old. I downloaded the latest client and that did not resolve it. I searched my computer and cound not find a .conf to manually update the server used to rebuild the block chain.

Is there a solution for this?


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: CaptainAK on November 11, 2013, 06:05:54 PM
Try deleting your blockchain (blk*.dat and the database/ folder) and peers.dat, but NOT your wallet.dat (that would be bad). Then use a conf file similar to this:

server=1
gen=0
daemon=1
rpcuser=yourrpcusername
rpcpassword=yourpassword
rpcport=8100
port=8099
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
addnode=btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com

Connecting directly to the block explorer should get you up to the current block. From there you should start getting additional peers connecting.

I repeat.. you can delete everything from your profile folder, but DO NOT delete your wallet.dat. Before you start the client you should only have wallet.dat and bitbar.conf in the folder

Yes deleting the block chain and re-downloading should get you back up to speed. I have the following ports instead of what was posted above:

Once found will the rest of the instructions fall neatly into place or am I too computer illiterate to own Bitbar?

-Data directory is here: C:\Users\******\AppData\Roaming\BitBar folder

-Close the wallet and delete everything but the wallet.dat (wallet.dat contains the keys to your coins)
-Restarting the wallet will re-download the blockchain.

Solo or pool mining? You wouldn't happen to have been mining on Diggers pool now were you? He has been running a forked pool for some time now. I too watched BTB go poof upon a redownload.

I have had no issue with Pacific Northwest Mining Pool and would recommend using thier pool as it is current.

Lastly, make sure your client is in sync before sending/recieving BTB. If it is not confirming, something is not right.

Thank you for the tips. I mined them all solo. The difficulty allowed it :) It seems that if you remove and re-dowlnoad the block-chain before the client had broadcast that you mined them (Which can take a long time strangely) you're done for. Now the diff. has spiked. I can't even make one block, not to mention one Bitbar. There goes my Christmas present of a telescope I guess. The client is current now, no issues, just my bad luck I guess.

Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: FalconFour on December 01, 2013, 03:33:40 AM
Well, I figure I'd better come in here and voice up. Been reading along ever since the first instance of the "checkpoint is too old" error, and the common resolve seems to be "redownload the [entire f%$#ing] blockchain from one peer". As a coin itself, I can't see this as a solution. For mine, it worked - finally resolved the error just by telling it who to connect to. But that's not the point. Let me go back a few hours and explain what led up to this error.

I wanted to give BitBar a try. The name and the concept were the big sell - a low-quantity currency meant to be a "bigger" Bitcoin. BitBars, Bitcoins, and Litecoins. Seems like a "coin" that could stand up to the test of time, unlike some others that are obviously get-rich-quick schemes for the devs. So, I checked out the website. Horribly disappointed. Front page is just "news", telling users to redownload the blockchain? Gotta be kidding me. Well... I press on. Downloads page said the "latest version is 0.4.1", pointing to a Google Drive download link that only has 0.4.2 and 0.4.3 (was dead the first time I tried it, though - blank page). 0.4.2 is the latest news post - what the hell is 0.4.3? Whatever, I grabbed 0.4.3 - newer is better, I guess.

Extracted it (no installer? Come on... more tedium for the end-user, this clearly isn't a project meant to be used for more than just miners), ran it. It started off showing a low number of blocks remaining to download, but then jumped after a few thousand had gone by... chugged away for a while... then eventually just hung for the next hour or so with several thousand blocks remaining (I think over 20,000). So, frustrated, I closed it and opened it up again.

Then I got the dreaded "checkpoint is too old, contact the devs" error. With a fresh download of the blockchain, with the latest client, starting from pure scratch.

Rule of thumb: your currency is doomed if your mainline client can't get online without editing a config file.

I got it working by adding "connect=84.200.4.218" to the config file and running "bitbar-qt.exe -rescan" - without the "rescan", it would still give the checkpoint error even after previous launches with "-rescan" connecting to a dead peer. The price of BTB is higher than any other currency besides Bitcoin right now, so it's definitely worth getting into - but will it last beyond the "OMG BITCOIN $1,000 EVERYTHING ELSE IS FAIR GAME" bubble? I dunno. I'm trying to give it the benefit of the doubt. But the technical errors and sketchy usability put a lot of doubt in my mind about the long-term stability of the project.

Could the blockchain-download bug be caused by a peer that's sending out that partial fork from earlier? Maybe the Bitbar client isn't making the proper differentiation between the good and bad peers, or failing to recover from being given a bad block? I don't know enough technical details, but it doesn't seem like *anyone* in this thread is giving the "checkpoint too old" error the attention it very clearly deserves... just "tape-over the check engine light, redownload block chain".

All this, and I still have no idea what the "Stake: 0.00" in my wallet is referring to. Like I said... usability problems. :P

I was there pretty early on and remember it trading for multiple btc at the time.  Not sure if that'll happen again given the current btc price.  But hey, most things that happen in crypto seem unbelievable at the time.  So who knows really...

What is the fee structure for BTB? Is it fixed like the other PoW/PoS coins? It's very important to know because it tells if the coins is meant for hoarding or trading.


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: CaptainAK on December 06, 2013, 05:45:40 PM
Do you mean TX Fees? I know how MOST of this coin works, but could you be more specific as to what you are asking? I will tell you that it IS like other POS/POW coins in that, if you hoard them long enough, you start getting POS blocks (interest, for lack of a better term), which to me seems to mean it is something you hold onto. The reward is inversely connected to difficulty. More difficulty = lower reward.

What other info are you looking for?


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: lumierre on December 07, 2013, 01:23:40 AM
Bitcoin has dynamic fees. You can opt to pay a fee for faster confirmation time but you can transact without paying a fee. In Peercoins, there is a fixed fee of $0.01/kb. It is destroyed rather than giving it to miners like bitcoin. Because of this, PPC would be impractical for microtransactions in the future when its value rises. The coin would be mostly for speculation. I'm looking for a PoS coin which allows for having zero transaction fees when there is less transactions to confirm but is dynamic enough to increase when there is load on the network. This allows for optimum growth because the market can balance liquidity and confirmation time.

 You don't ask for much, lol.


 Just maybe the one at this link is a close enough match for your desires. It kinda fell off half off the map for a while but suddenly many are again mining it. But it still has tiny transaction fees now. And isn't an exact match. But comes close. I recall it used to have no transaction fees when I mined a bit of it. But that appears to have slightly been altered from what I just read.
See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=245951.0

 Then again I am not certain any crypto would be sustainable long term without the mining incentive of transaction fees supporting it's networks blockchain maintenance/upkeep (transactions function), if I understand this correctly?

 Hence maybe why the one above like all the others(?) shifted to a modest transaction fee itself, upon further analysis.


 Search for yourself at: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=search Best tool here is this.

Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: CaptainAK on December 08, 2013, 02:50:41 PM
Best I can tell you right now, it that Bitbar has dynamic fees and it appears to be based on both amount of transaction and the age of the coin. Looking back through my logs, I found that transfers that were happening before the boom were taking only .001 or no fees at all. As the average age of the coins in my pool wallet got younger, TXFees starting increasing. I am seeing now fees anywhere from .001 for small transfers up to .008 for very large transfers.

I have not seen any recent transfers that are fee-free though.

I agree. I like the site. I have been looking for a total coin supply list for all cryptocurrencies for a few days now.

One contradiction I noticed: Your site says "500,000+ BTB" and the second post on this thread (by the OP) says "Total Supply: 2,800 BTB"

That's a big difference. Which is correct?

2,800 was the outstanding BTB when that post was written.  The 500,000 is in the source code for MAX_MONEY which is the same as for Peercoin. (PPC's MAX_MONEY=2000000000)

It is not uncommon for the block explorers (Both ABE based and the CCE3 test explorers) to be a couple of blocks behind, especially with fast chains. Sometimes processing the blocks after a new block trigger takes longer then the time a new block comes on the network. Orphan blocks also effect both types of explorer. If the daemon gives the explorer an orphan block, that block will be displayed until the daemon corrects itself and the explorer catches it.

In short, I would wait for at least a 1/2 hour if what you are comparing to the explorers is different before becoming concerned.

It will show up as soon as we find the next block.  On average the pool should hit a block every 5 hours so we need to wait until that happens. The time to hit a block will go down as we get more hashing power in the pool.

I don't believe you can but I'm not sure.  I've heard you'll have problems moving very small amounts of BitBar and also problems moving brand new coins. 

I generally don't use wallets on my local computer but instead move it directly from my mining pool to an exchange which has worked out well for me so far.  You just need to make sure you don't spam the exchange with lots of micro-transactions.

Hi there, a newbie interested in collecting alt coins.

Can the developer comment on why you advertise not to be a "premine" but in fact you are an instantly mined coin? Cryptometer.org shows the facts.

http://cryptometer.org/bitbar_90_day_charts.html (http://cryptometer.org/bitbar_90_day_charts.html)

Notice on the bottom, "Total Supply". over 2,000 BitBars were mined in ONE DAY. After eight months, there are now 9,000 mined. Can anyone look at this data and not describe it as "instamined", or instantly mined?

Just so everyone knows http://btb.pnwminer.com has not been down the past couple of days :) At the top of the main page was the message "Please use secondary servers" and the links to it were changed as well. I do not think very many people noticed it and have trying to login to btb.pnwminer.com instead of btb2.pnwminer.com. I have turned on redirects and changed all links, just to be safe. During all of this time though, the actual stratum pool has kept on going and people are still getting paid.

If anyone is having problems getting their wallet to sync, backup your wallet.dat if you haven't (always a good call). Then you need to close your wallet, add a %appdata%/bitbar/bitbar.conf file with "connect=84.200.4.218" entry and re-open it. Let me know if you have any problems I can help you through it.

Hello,
New to BTB. Just wondering if there was any news or any particular trigger for the runup in the value of BTB since around January 6.

No news that I'm aware of, I believe it's just the market recognizing an undervalued currency.  There will only be 500'000 BitBars produced via PoW + PoS inflation.  This scarcity coupled with the long term hold mentality of the coin itself is finally pushing the price up. I personally believe it still has lots of room to grow in price.

My Bitbar wallet has some BTB stuck in stake. Any ideas? I tried redownloading the blockchain but it is still stuck. Everything looks as it should until it gets right to the last 24 hours or so and then it goes to stake and does not come back. All the transactions show that they have enough confirmatinos already. Am I missing something?

Thanks!

When it's in stake I believe it's earning PoS, I'm not sure with BitBar but I believe if you encrypt your wallet (write down the encryption password, if you lose it your money is gone forever) it will prevent the stake from occuring.  Worth a try, if anyone else knows more please let us know.


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Thrash on January 14, 2014, 04:11:50 AM
Yes, it gets staked when you find a POS block. But once the confirms are there for the staked block it should move back. In my case I had 3 POS that were orphans and those coins did not move back. Not sure how to fix it.

Yes if your wallet is unlocked it will automatically be able to mint POS blocks after 30 days.  If it is locked/encrypted it will not mint POS blocks.  You have to do the same procedure as for PPC to unlock an encrypted wallet for minting:

Run the Bitbar-Qt program and open your wallet.  Go to wherever Bitbar is installed:  Usually it's C:\Program Files (x86)\Bitbar\, in that folder you will see BitBar-Qt.exe.  Within that folder create a batch file called "mint.bat".

Place this code in the mint.bat file:

Code:
@echo off
@echo Enter PPC password...
SET /P variable=Password :
ppcoind walletpassphrase %variable% 9999999 true


This batch file will ask you for your wallet password and will unlock your wallet for minting purposes only, any transfers will still require your password to be initiated.  This must be run each time the client is restarted.  

If you did everything correctly you can hover over the lock icon in the lower right corner and it will say "Wallet is encrypted and currently unlocked".

This is the same as PPcoin: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=187714.0

POS blocks minted will be held in stake for 520 confirmations similar to POW blocks will be immature for 520 confirmations.

Did you try starting with -rescan?  Also you can try "checkwallet" and "repairwallet" from the console.

Are you sure it has 520 confirmations after it is confirmed (right click "transaction details")?

As always, back up your wallet before trying anything.  My friend told me you can fix this issue sometimes by running repairwallet in the wallet console which you can access in the wallet by clicking Help->Debug Window and click the console tab.  Good luck, let me know if that works.

It does NOT have 500 confirms. I was just looking at the check mark and it was green so thought it had enough. I have 4 or 5 POS blocks that only have 125 - 250 confirms so I am sure it will be ok once the confirms are there. I am used to some of the other POS coins and once the green checkmark shows up the stake goes back.

I had tried repairwallet already and could not decide what to try next. Guess waiting is the best idea. Just impatient I guess.  ;-)

Thanks to all for the advice!

I haven't heard of any changes however there seems to be bitbar.biz and bitbar.info so perhaps someone is working on it.

The community over at http://reddit.com/r/bitbar is starting to pick up steam and there's some good content being worked on.  Hopefully we can collaborate on some promotional material and perhaps the dev team will incorporate it if they like what they see.

Lets say I'm a complete noob, which I am. I'm having the issues raised previously around the checkpoint being too old. As with others I have downloaded the lasted 4.3 client, but I start to get a bit lost when the next instruction is clear everything out of your data directory. Where do I find the data directory? Once found will the rest of the instructions fall neatly into place or am I too computer illiterate to own Bitbar?

-Data directory is here: C:\Users\******\AppData\Roaming\BitBar folder

-Close the wallet and delete everything but the wallet.dat (wallet.dat contains the keys to your coins)
-Restarting the wallet will re-download the blockchain.


Just a bump to say this method works a treat.

Thanks, it worked with that command. It doesn't seem like there was any excess coin generated this way :D But maybe I overlooked something. (I mean PoS blocks were generated correctly, and they are staked, but the cumulative amount hasn't moved - or maybe just a tiny tiny bit)
I think you need to leave the wallet open and unencrypted to properly mine PoS.  I was told that if you just open it unencrypted and then close it you get some but miss out on a bunch of PoS you'd get if you leave it open.  Still need more miners at http://btb.scrypthp.com we're only at 9 Mh/s, low 1.5% fee, MPOS on fast secure servers.  100% uptime since launch and I check the tickets daily.

It doesn't have to be unencrypted, but it has to be unlocked.

Title: Community Take Over Of Bitbar
Post by: FallingKnife on February 27, 2014, 04:03:23 PM
Now that we're nearly a year into Bitbar, I'm wondering if there is a support for a community takeover of this coin. I have been in touch with a few other BTB holders on Reddit who are discussing this, and who may be willing to put up some bounties to set the coin on a different course.  None of us were part of the original launch.

If there's generally support from the community here, I would like to proceed by finding a great developer to review the code, implement KGW into Bitbar,  explain the POS/POW algo, and help us update the look of the wallet.  I think kgw will help ensure support for our core miners who have stuck with Bitbar through thick and thin, and prevent problems down the road.

Bitbar has great assets in Cryptsy and Bter exchanges, its miners and long term holders. Bitbar remains a very unique coin in the crypto landscape. The early missteps are old news now ad well vetted, and the early parties seem to have largely moved on and cashed out.  As far as I can tell, the original Devs have not been active. I saw 1 post in the past 5 months from Bitbardev, so have to assume he's probably moved on to other projects.

We think that Bitbar can and should be better managed and promoted.

What other changes would you like to see to Bitbar?

Bitbar is going through a period of paying out stake (dividends) to users who have been holding coins for more than ~30 days. It will slow down on the creation of POS Generation blocks eventually and should resume normal operations. This is a normal occurrence for POS coins. The only downside to it, is that a POS Generation blocks is still a block and so when the network (not a miner) generates one, it still causes difficulty to climb. When it is done, diff should drop back down again.

Keep on mining and things will get back to normal eventually :)

a rare/novel concept, if you neglect the problems.

1) first off software is bunk, and requires addnodes all the f**ing time. 

2) 50 BTC a bar is not worth it.
3) SatoshiCoins's can be infinitely divided (SatoshiCoins are divisible up to 8 decimal places, and each is worth only 1 satoshi starting tomorrow (or 10 if we buy out all 21m tomorrow and sell em to our friends for inflated prices (plz don't i want this to be fair, 50 BTC for each, lets just say)

Correct, you now have to log in with your email address at http://btb.scrypthp.com - if you send me your username I can check what the associated email address is.  Unfortunately you won't be able to reset your password if you don't have access to the email. I'm sure there's a way for me to change the email address on the back end but I'll have to figure it out if you need me to.

Is bitbar forked, or what the hell is up?

My wallet says following:

    "protocolversion" : 60005,
    "walletversion" : 60000,

    "stake" : 0.00000000,

    "moneysupply" : 10738.74059300,
    "connections" : 8,

    "ip" : "censored",
    "difficulty" : 20.31659917,

    "keypoolsize" : 102,
    "paytxfee" : 0.00010000,

And at Hellionators pool the diff has been falling quite some time now. Under 6 at the moment... And current block is 58022. Quite a difference?

Am I missing something? Broken wallet? Or what...?

Hello folks!
I recently got the idea to try mining bitbar with my GC3355 miners.
Downloaded the 'client' which for Win 7, I think and the other Win32 version. Both do not want to work.
I've noticed that bitbar stays in the top 10 coins on coinwarz a lot so I thought this would be an ideal and more stable coin
to point my miners to.
But....
If I can't get a BTB wallet, what's the point?

I admit I'm being lazy here. I haven't read through this entire thread but have been looking up things on it elsewhere.
I am glad I found this thread. So please, don't beat me up too much, eh? ;)

Can someone point me in the right direction so I can get going with mining BTB or at least, tell me if I am wasting my time because my miners won't mind BTB, which really sucks if that's the case.
Thanks!

Hi, those mines should work just fine for bitbar. You mean that you did not get the wallet for btb working? You could set your autopay out in some pool to 1 or 2 and set your payout address to exchanges deposit address.

 I would just pick some other pool than Hellinators atm, they are still mining on a fork, imho. Now over 1000 blocks behind of the real chain... Can't get those bitbars payed out to any exchange, I presume. Atleast mine did not reach cryptsy...

Atleast a little while ago it was not. I received my btb to my wallet... but for some time now they've been on a fork, IMHO. I managed to mine almost 1BTB before I noticed this.... I've tried to cashout to cryptsy and to my wallet. I received nothing. Well, that is to be expected, when mining in a fork... Pool is almost 1500 blocks behind and diff is about 20 lower than what my wallet reports at the moment...

Im going to say its a scam. I sent the owner a email about cashing out and never heard back. Sent a few coins to wallet and nothing never got a coin. May not have been before but seems he is about 2000 blocks out of the real chain. I have 6 BTB sitting there and cant even get them now.

If you try going to the official BTB site looks like they haven't re-upped their hosting. Main reason wallet I guess wont sync.

BitBar is now back on  CryptoCoinExplorer as a sponsored explorer!!


http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com)

or

http://www.btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com (http://www.btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com)

Bitbar is now guaranteed an explorer for one year. The CCE3 explorer is under current development with plans to add new features and the Bitbar explorer will be updated as the CCE3 software is updated.

Part of sponsorship includes a seed node. This node can be hard coded into a future version of the Bitbar client/daemon, or used as an addnode in ones' conf file.

btb.altcointech.net

To use as an addnode:

Code:
addnode=btb.altcointech.net

Because of the way Cloudflare works, one cannot use the direct btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com address as an addnode.

I don't want to change anything . I just want YOU to upgrade your COINS wallet. Just some Graphics and some bells and whistles ? Help the hundreds of people who have wallet sync issues. We will pay you to do this!!!

Post by: lukemarshall on May 31, 2014, 07:00:39 AM
It is fairly obvious to me that there is no new development team headed by Trucoin.

I can somewhat understand your passion with BitBar Trucoin, however many of your posts can be interpreted in different ways. Your wallet update post which I'm guessing is a way to facilitate conversation around BTB. I say this because there is no real update on status of client upgrade/s.

Thank you BitBar Dev for assuring no hard forks without your involvement. The Community needs your involvement... why not have a collaboration from different devs including yourself to bring this to the next level? Even non coders can help in bringing real world ideas to the table... this doesn't have to be a one man show. As Bitbar falls father into obscurity, as people inquire of it and get little to no info, you are losing the opportunity to strike while the iron is hot.

Bitcoin has had pull requests from many different people to find fix and upgrade code to suite the ever changing crypto world... why not Bitbar?

Dreamcacher has just informed us of the reworking block explorer, that's a step in the right direction. There is even a hard codednode
 that could be added to the code @ github.

Alien,thanks for the vouch of confidence Sir. Should I be chosen to participate in anything I will be as  forthright as possible.

So here we stand at the precipice, and we already know what's down there, lets work together to make something special! This project is far from dead and with such a small effort could be brought back to the forefront



Bitbar has had a value of 1+ bitcoin at one point... the air has cleared, prices returned to earth... never the less it was there, It can be again

Cheers to all

Not to rain on anybodies parade, but this is completely untrue.

If one does a hard fork, one simply replaces the alert key and checkpoint key in the hardforked release.In a hardfork ANYTHING can be changed.

Whether or not the hardfork is successful is fully dependent on whether users adopt the new client (hardfork) or stick with the old client (no fork).

I am not saying that Bitbar should hard forked or not. If anything , it would  make my life a bit more difficult as far as the explorer is concerned.

From what I have been told there is a POS rounding issue and a wallet corruption issue that needs to be dealt with. I have not dug far enough in the code to determine if these require a hardfork to fix or not, but most likely any change in the rounding algo for POS will require one.

BItBardev, from one dev to another, you are much better off welcoming help and getting issues fixed. Trying to throw up a false wall will only hurt the cause, not help it.

There appears to be a fork in the network

Cryptsy matches my independant node here

https://altexplorer.info/chains/BTB/block_crawler.php

While the other chain appears to be struggling to find blocks over here

http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/

I have suspended depsoits and withdrawals for bitbar until the situation is resolved


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: CaptainAK on February 17, 2015, 04:20:28 AM
Hi All, I think I am running the oldest BTB pool at this point btb.pnwminer.com and I have been using the explorer at http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ for a long time. It looks like the fork took place right around the 18th of January.

Mullick, Is that went Minsty went live? I am just wondering if it accidentally forked when the beta site starting mining. Pure speculation, of course. I have no idea what coins it mines.

And we are finding blocks on the other chain. My pool alone has found 832 blocks in the past 4 weeks and that only accounts for about 20% of the total found blocks in the same time period. So there are a lot of people mining the pools on this chain.

It also appears from other posts in this thread, that others are using the http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com chain. It is mentioned multiple times in just the last few posts.


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: mullick on February 17, 2015, 05:57:59 AM
Ya there must be a pool out there mining this chain as well. Since the chain is longer. And has a higher difficulty.

Looks like the fork occured at block 100835

https://altexplorer.info/chains/BTB/index.php?block_hash=000000000299a2ea6c2d3b3a4f134c14dc9d7a09ac694902c04ecb4adb6ec3cf

http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/block?block=100835

This is roughly 1100 blocks in the past. Cryptsy has received 175 deposits since then.

I have reached out to some of the affected users to track if its a pool or solo miners taking advantage of the situation. Although they would have no benefit mining that chain right now with its difficulty

EDIT:

I have received confirmation Mintsy has not mined bitbar yet


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: CaptainAK on February 17, 2015, 02:53:48 PM

In terms of btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com):

I have changed the market quote to Cryptsy, as BTER is shut down.

Let me know if I need to change/update/rebuild...etc the daemon and/or explorer database once the correct chain is decided upon.

It looks like I run 2/3 nodes on that fork. And deposits since then have been minimal. Im comfortable with going with the other chain. Ill be resyncing tonight and update the thread when its back online. If you mined at CaptainAK's pool your recently mined coins will be safe

Ill be manually adding a checkpoint to our client. Does anyone have access to the original repository anymore?

My guess would be that if you created a BTB address with Cryptsy BEFORE the fork, then any BTB you mined and sent to your Cryptsy address will be fine. If you made the address AFTER the fork, then your BTB may be lost. You would need to ask the guys at Cryptsy, because once the transactions leaves my wallet, there is not much I can do.

Do I have that about right Mullick? Not even sure there is anything you guys can do.

Probably not, but at one point (over a year ago) I did clone the project, added checkpoints, and added network hashrate calcs to it. It worked, but not being a programmer by trade, I was a little leery to advertise it. It still exists, but I have been using the stock source up until now.

Ok - so what has happened here since Feb 16th?  I've been mining BTB for a long time -- now I'm not finding 60+ BTB coins due to me in my Cryptsy account.

I use hash-to-coins pool.  Did I lose all of this mining time?

Was this hard-forked?  Hash-to-Coins is showing block 102464 as just mined, but the other block explorers aren't even close to that.

I hope this is not coin gone SCAM.  Not happy here.

What terrible organization.  Is anyone in charge of this coin?  You don't even notify the pool operators of a fork?



I think the developers have been gone for some time.

Honestly im still not sure how this fork happened. The blockchain should have reorganized.

My decision to choose which fork to support was based on the evidence I had at the time. If you have a negative balance at cryptsy for bitbar please file a support ticket and we will see what we can work out for you

Hi Mullick,

So do you think I will be able to get credit for the 50+ BTBs I mined on Hash-to-Coins during the change to the shorter chain?

And what happened to this coin?  The difficulty went sky high - where it is one of the least profitable coins to mine.  This was the opposite before.

http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ is up to date with the current chain, coinwarz does not apper to be.

I have sent coinwarz a message notifying them of the situation and pointed a link back here for referance, hopefully they can fix their end of the Bitbar calculator.

Seems there is nothing special going than a checkpoint that has been jammed earlier. A guy called Mullick have added new checkpoint and the chain goes on from that point. Anyone using any old Bitbar wallet should compile their wallets from https://github.com/Mullick/bitbar (https://github.com/Mullick/bitbar) and someone should compile the updated wallet for all Windows users out here and post the compiled binaries on this thread.

Also, there's another working, synced Bitbar pool for all us supporting the chain:

Concerning CryptoCoinExplorer:  btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com)

Over the last month or so, there has been more downtime then normal. This is due to server restarts by the server provider.

Before the recent incidents, server restarts were a relatively rare occurrence.When CCE 3.5 was written last year, unattended restarts were not a major consideration.
I do not run a startup script for CCE servers as I prefer to manually restart CCE 3.5 explorers.
This is to ensure the startup goes smooth as there are a couple of issues, though rare, that could come up.

Development of CCE 4 started a few months ago and the database loader is at a state that it could be deployed.
The CCE 4 database loader is very restart friendly and also much more fault/error tolerant then the CCE 3.5 loader.

In light of these recent events, I am going to write a modified version of the CCE 4 database loader that will work with CCE 3.5 databases.

This will allow me to confidently use a server startup script to start the explorers unattended whenever there is a restart.

The plan is to have this deployed over the weekend/early next week.

My apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: dreamwatcher on April 17, 2015, 01:07:52 AM
Concerning the CCE explorer at: btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com)

The new database loader has been patched into all the explorers and restart tests were done over the last few days.

I know it appears that CCE 4 is taking a long time in development, but I want to make sure that everything is running as good as possible and future improvements will not involve the amount of rewriting I am doing from 3.5 to 4.0. It took a couple of months to decide the final structure of the database loader for 4.0. The database loader is only half the equation, the web server is now the development focus and the part that will tested in the in public beta. I guess if one good thing came out of the retro fitting of 4.0, it is that the database loader code will be well tested even before the live beta.

I have decided to release a base version of the  database loader for 4.0 as open source. I have been taking time with the database loader (and its associated modules) to make it open source friendly.
This will most likely be released at the same time CCE 4 is deployed to take advantage of the PR opportunity. I think people might be surprised at how small the modules are for the loader, but it has always been one of my goals to create explorer code as lite as possible in both length and resources. There are 4 modules that make up the database loader and combined are just shy of 800 lines. I still have more to do with the statistics module, but what will be released in the open source version is there. The CCE 3.5 web server, which is the base of writing the CCE 4.0 web server, is composed of two modules and combined is a bit over 800 lines.

There are so many options being added to CCE 4 that most likely it will be offered in a tiered format. From very basic free explorers (text like with only a couple, if any, API commands) with advertisement type funding to a top tier with things like blockchain downloads updated weekly, coin client downloads, user accounts, advanced API features for statistics and "lite" clients , user and developer explorer customizations, coin website hosting and much more. Much of this is covered in https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=922521.0 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=922521.0)
Once a larger chunk of the new features is finalized, I will  post them in the CCE 4.0 thread. Please offer any ideas for features you might want in that thread.

The point is, CCE 4 is going to be a different beast from CCE 3.5. It is turning out to be a complete rewrite. I believe in the end, it will be worth the wait.

Looks like there was a high% drop in hash rate most probably due to multi-pool hopping on Profitability increase / decrease.

Bitbar has dynamic difficulty adjustment which seems to be re-targeting to a lower difficulty to compensate for this.

I apologize for my ignorance, I assume the code is open source, but would the original creator(s) be required for any kind of sign off/approval on any future developments/merging of branches? My knowledge is limited, but I think I understand at the very least that a majority of the miners would be required to switch over to the new software for it to have any value and purpose.

I know there are tons of other cryptos out there, but there's something about BTB that I've always found appealing. If anyone else is interested in helping breathe life back into the coin, or has any ideas how, I'd love to contribute resources of some kind to help do so.

Post by: Spidersbox on September 11, 2015, 06:49:59 AM
I'm all for a take over, but nobody seems to be willing to step up.

so let's see if we can get the ball rolling .....

I just bought the domains:
bit-bar.com
bitbar.co
bitbar.rocks

the grand total is $36.33

I have my own web server so all I had to do was change some dns settings and add the web sites to the server. no biggy....
Please note that there is nothing at those web sites right now.

lets have a vote on which site/name should be the 'official' home site for bitbar. I'll keep the others and redirect.

I would like to have a message board on the site, but it's been 8 years since I've messed with them and don't know which would be best. hopefully someone can recommend a board.
Keep in mind that I can do HTML, java-script, and Perl - let's keep the learning curve down.

I've just started with programming on Linux, so it will take me a while to figure it out [why can't you do for(int t=0;t<something;t++)] so if some one could deal with the wallet update, or help me learn how to do it - it would be much appreciated.

This is just to show that is an interest in bitbar, and that there are people willing to take an active roll in developing this coin/bar.

What's your input ??

I'm interested. I'm also interested in getting the blockchain to DL to my wallet..lol

It got stuck so I deleted it and now its stuck on block 13086 and getting the "checkpoint too old...blabla" message. I'm running the 4.0 version. I found later versions(4.1, 4.2?) but even after I find all the .dlls it needs to run( they were not included), it still F**ks up and won't start.

I would mine BTB if I could find a pool...well, and my wallet synced...

Yes, I found those nodes above and added them to my .conf and still a no go..


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on September 15, 2015, 02:22:39 AM
I'm using 4.2 on linux and 4.3 on windows

sometimes it helps to close the wallet down, delete the peers.dat file and start the wallet again.


this is what I have in my bitbar.conf file:

keypool=200
noirc=1
maxconnections=10
addnode=108.62.10.90
addnode=199.68.198.33
addnode=104.209.105.60
addnode=76.11.216.201



you can skip the keypool and the max connections.

sometimes you have to wipe out everything (EXCEPT YOUR WALLET.DAT!!) and start over, downloading the chain from the beginning.

I've even transferred all my bitbars from my desktop - to a wallet on my laptop, removed all the bitbar directories, and started from scratch.

good luck   :-\

I'm all for furthering development.

A dedicated home page would be a nice first Re-start.

I personally like the bitbar.co website, seems straight to the point.

I've reached out to a developer to get a client upgrade, I feel like if Bitbar had  new developer involved, wee could hard code a new checkpoint from that time and fork the code to that developers name... just a thought as mullick said he will not maintain the chain after forking from ALq earlier this year.

Thank you! Hopefully this thing will sync. I am confused though... "v0.4.2.0-g32a928e-beta" is what shows up in the "4.3" version if you click on "debug window" and look in the information tab.

yes- my 4.3 says the same, and my 4.2 reports v0.4.1.0-g32a928e-beta
go figure.
All I know is it sync's, it receives bitbars from my pool and when I send to Cryptsy - they get it, so life is good....

I'm all for furthering development.

A dedicated home page would be a nice first Re-start.

I personally like the bitbar.co website, seems straight to the point.

I've reached out to a developer to get a client upgrade, I feel like if Bitbar had  new developer involved, wee could hard code a new checkpoint from that time and fork the code to that developers name... just a thought as mullick said he will not maintain the chain after forking from ALq earlier this year.

I agree an 'official' website is needed. I'm tired of searching the web for 'bitbar' - only to find broken links, 'server not found' and 'this web site for sale'.

So, 1 vote for the name bitbar.co

It's a start  :)

It's a shame mullick won't do it since he's been through the code already.
Hopefully your developer will be willing.

humm, I guess I had better start buying back all those bitbars I've sold before people find out there's a new dev in town...

just a side note:
the block chain tends to pause from time to time.
I like to check the explorer at http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ to see if my block count matches. One of the nice things about that block explorer is it shows how 'old' the block is.

I only bring it up because the present block is 82 minutes old.  :P

I'm glad yours is working! lol

 mine is stuck at current number of blocks: 109630 with estimated total blocks: 132109.
It's also showing only 2 connections right now. I added your node list to the others I pulled off the thread above to my conf, deleted the peers.dat and ran it. Then deleted everything but the wallet.dat,ran it again and still only syncs to this point. I'm stumped.. I have even just shut it down and restarted it a few minutes later just to see what happens a few times now.

What pool do you mine at?


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on September 15, 2015, 08:44:11 PM
this might sound a little strange, but shut down the 4.3 wallet and start the older one and see if that gets it moving. I vaguely remember having to jump back and forth to get things moving (might have been a different coin though).

All though,it might just be the peers that are connecting.
If you go to the wallet console (help/debug/console) and type getpeerinfo, it will list the computers you are connected to.
You may notice that several of them are connecting on different ports.
If you know how to setup rules in your firewall you might be able to block them, otherwise you just kinda have to wait it out.

That's about all I know, I'm still a newbie at this.


I solo mine my own pool. it was a way to start learning linux.
I'm mining terracoin, diamond and bitbar at the moment.

Any chance you know how to make a bootstrap.dat file? ..or could upload your updated appdata folder ( less your wallet.dat ofcourse, haha) to github or the like? I think having either of those 2 things available would solve sync issues at least for awhile.

Yes, the repository on github is on mullicks name since he added checkpoint after accidental fork earlier this year.

I pulled my wallet.dat file  and zipped the Bitbar directory.
you can find the file at http://Bitbar.co

I tried it on my laptop and it works.

The weird thing to me is that my bitbar chain data base is unlike bitcoin and litecoin. There are only three files: blk0001.dat, blkindex.dat and the file log.000000026 is the database folder.

To make a bootstap.dat file (at least for the above mentioned coins) you cram all the blk files together and rename it.

Don't know how to do it for bitbar.

Success! Thank you Spidersbox! OK, now I will consider mining this coin. How much hashpower do you have on the network? I have never solomined before. How did you figure it out for Bitbar? Can this coin be mined with asics?

I have a total of 9 Gridseed Blades with an average hash of about 45 mh split between two computers.
Why two rigs ? each unit has two cards, for a total of 18 usb connections, plus I can mine two different coins if I want.

I started mining pools like btb.mastermining.net - they are ASIC friendly, then I built my pool. I started with one using https://github.com/MPOS/php-mpos/wiki/Quick-Start-Guide but it only does one coin.
I'm using https://github.com/zone117x/node-open-mining-portal now.

There are ways to solo mine your own wallet, but I never looked into it.
I'm sure there are lot's of web sites with step by step instructions for both windows and linux.
If you have a spare computer and a lot of free time, it's a good way to dive into linux. it's how I started 13 months ago.

Post by: userpike on September 16, 2015, 05:10:20 PM
Thanks for the links. If you go into the console and type "setgenerate true" it will default to using all possible cpu power towards mining. You can set the number of cores being used by typing that number after "setgenerate true".  After that I don't know how to solo-mine with the wallet. I know there is a way to add gpus and asics even and not use the cpu but it's on the internet somewhere.. lol I remember seeing it in the past.

Do you know how to get the wallet to stake? I haven't found much info on that, really just that its supposed to stake.. I hope its not all crazy like Peercoin. When I type "getinfo" in the console I get this:

"version" : "v0.4.2.0-g32a928e-beta",
"protocolversion" : 60005,
"walletversion" : 60000,
"balance" : 0.02815900,
"newmint" : 0.00000000,
"stake" : 0.00000000,
"blocks" : 132136,
"moneysupply" : 20235.13354100,

"keypoolsize" : 205,
"paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
"errors" : "WARNING: Checkpoint is too old. Wait for block chain to download, or notify developers."
}
I'm not expecting much with that balance but I want to be sure it is staking or minting or whatever..

Proof of Stake blocks are eligible after 30 days, and can take longer depending on the amount being staked.

For maximum stake, one must wait 90days.

Also wallet cannot be locked.


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: userpike on September 17, 2015, 02:23:28 PM
Thanks for the good info Luke! I have to say that literally seconds ago my wallet staked for 0.0BTB! lol

 "Status: 1/unconfirmed, broadcast through 7 nodes
Date: 9/17/2015 10:17
Debit: 0.00 BTB
Net amount: -0.028159 BTB
Transaction ID: 6349fc570449e3f724de67601c65f15a1ab06c5848bd64daa1002f8e4232be1f

Staked coins must wait 520 blocks before they can return to balance and be spent. When you generated this proof-of-stake block, it was broadcast to the network to be added to the block chain. If it fails to get into the chain, it will change to "not accepted" and not be a valid stake. This may occasionally happen if another node generates a proof-of-stake block within a few seconds of yours."

is what it says for transaction details.

 I have a computer dedicated to staking wallets. :P

The fact that BTB stakes is really why I wanted to mess with the coin, so thanks for getting me squared away.

 Now, if my buy order on Crypsy goes through soon I'll be a happy camper.

I also tried solomining with the bitbar-qt wallet...my miners get "SICK" and then after 10 minutes they are "DEAD" in BFGMiner 5.2. I've never solomined usng my asic miners before so I don't know what to expect. Certainly I expect some blocks though! lol

I believe it is 6% annual

to simulate real world inflation rate

As of now smaller amounts that stake create blocks that advance transactions, but create no interest.

Please point me in the right direction so I can get this coin working on my pool.

It looks like your on the right chain. I dont know if there is still an explorer or not


Code:
"errors" : "WARNING: Checkpoint is too old. Wait for block chain to download, or notify developers."

That error can be ignored. Bitbar should have a checkpointing server running. But I don't believe I'm the right person for the job with bitbar.  And I have other projects to work on instead of orchestrating a hard fork. So for now I could remove that error from the code in my repo, But its no threat. The repo was only supposed to be temporary until someone stepped in.

Maybe some trusted member of the community could take it over....

you can now download a bitbar-master.zip at Bitbar.co
This is the version I have been using on my pool without any problems. you will have to compile.

There is also a zipped file of all my wallet files (except the wallet.dat) from my windows PC. I'm not sure if you can simply move them into your .bitbar directory or not -  I haven't tried that yet.  :)

The .zip with the wallet files is what got me past my stuck point. I can now send and receive coins and they show up ha! So for whoever wants to know, it definitely helped with that and sped up the sync process significantly.

 I still haven't figured out the solomining with asics thing with my Zuesminer/Gawminers asics though. I found some threads on the net but nothing with a positive conclusion.

Nothing seems to help, the wallet is syncing just fine, but I can't generate any new blocks, that's the only thing that doesnt work right now.

I've been throwing insane amounts on hashing power on it but the wallet keeps rejecting any new blocks.

cgminer might be a good way to go. I used the earlier versions when I was using my gpu's.
Some of his (http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/ (http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/)) newer versions might work with the Zuesminer/Gawminers.
The manufacturers website (if there is one) may have a list of recommended mining software.

Yes, stratum mining with NOMP, nothing seems to work though, never had this problem with any other coin, and I've dealt with over 70 different types of coins.

I've only dealt with cryptsy, so I can't help with that.
I had a transfer go bad - it took 4 months to get it straightened out.
I generated a new cryptsy btb address and did a test transfer ( .5 btb) and it worked.
I suggest checking the address you sent to on http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/address (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/address) and seeing if it makes it to that address.
Once you have that additional information, you can add it to your ticket thread https://cryptsy.freshdesk.com/support/tickets (https://cryptsy.freshdesk.com/support/tickets) and that might help speed things along.

Well, Cryptsy seems to be on a fork - or we are  >:( Their block count is about 200 higher than http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/)

I think it will take a while for our transfers to go through.
I let them know that they are on a different chain than cryptocoinexplorer, and they said they will look into it.

Could someone explain to me how one figures out which chain is the correct one - I'm trying to learn - and I haven't found a "block chain for dummies" book anywhere  :)

Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on October 04, 2015, 06:45:05 AM
I thought a fork is a change in the code. will you explain?

Ok - simply put, a fork in the blockchain (the long ledger of transactions) can happen when two mining pools (as an example) find a bock at the same time.
Each block in the chain is made up of part of the previous block plus the batch of transactions.

for instance, the current block being 'mined' is #13550. this current block or records has three transactions in it. Let's say pool A and Pool B both find it to be a bonus block at the same time:

  Pool 'A' takes some information from that block (#13550) and adds the new transaction it just made - for finding a bonus block - smashes it together to make a new block - we will call that block #13551

  At the same time, Pool 'B' does the same thing - some stuff from block #13550 plus the transaction it just made for the block it found - smashes it together and puts it out as block #13551

these new blocks have to be verified (confirmed) several times. That's what the miners do, the crunch the numbers, make sure it all adds up - plus record checking stuff -  then passes it along.

So far, pool A being on the west coast doesn't know about transaction from pool B (maybe it's on the east coast?) and we now have two chains.

more in the next post


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on October 04, 2015, 07:02:38 AM
This happens from time to time, but generally it gets fixed down the line in a block or two. the blocks in the chain get passed around like a 'hot - new mp3 of your favorite group" and eventually get handed to a mining rig to work on.

This is where I am still a little fuzzy on how the mining rigs find out about both transactions - but they do, and in most cases, the early bird get the worm, so to speak, and the looser becomes an orphan - if you have done any mining - you have undoubtedly ran into these.

On rare occasions, pool A sticks with it's fork, and pool B sticks with it's fork, and they just keep going until a transfer fails and all heck breaks loose.
-----------------------------------
The is another instance in which a blockchain becomes forked, and that's referred to as a 51% attack (although I don't think it always happens on purpose)

if pool A has 49% of the total hashing power, and pool B has 51%, pool B will, on average find more blocks - hence create more blocks, and pool A will simply fall behind.

I'm sure there are other circumstances that can cause a fork in the road, but once you have a punctured tire - who cares about the cause at the moment ?  that's for the dev team to work on so it doesn't happen again  ;)

now it's time for questions and corrections, feel free to add both!

edit: forgot to say that yes, I have heard that when the 'code' is handed over to a new dev it can be called a fork. The background in this I think is how the github works. A developer can have a master project, and if someone wants to work on it, they 'fork' it (or duplicate it) to their own work space. then they can work on their own copy and submit there changes to the master developer. In that way - when we get a new dev , they will fork the repository, and if they don't do anything substantial to the way the blockchain works, we will have an updated wallet, without having to re-sync the chain.

Post by: userpike on October 04, 2015, 05:03:27 PM
ok I think something happened to FRK like that recently because I was mining it @ H2C and even sent coins to my wallet which never appeared (also their TX# don't show in the explorers) then I check back and see like every block I mined was orphaned. The wallet is still sitting in maintenance mode on Cryptsy...The poolmaster said he isn't putting Franko back up until Cryptsy's wallet comes out of maintenance mode. I think I understand now. I'm surprised the code wasn't written so that this can't happen in the first place but I've never DEV'ed a coin before either. Thanks for the explanation.

I can't help you there, I'm still learning, and haven't gotten into the code yet - but I'm thinking that the wallet stakes what is already in it, and once it is old enough it stakes. If the wallet gets lucky and you get some of the stakes, the wallet tries to make a transaction and sends it to the network. this is where I think you (and most of us) are having problems.
The fork we are on is shorter by a little over 200 blocks (last time I checked) so any transactions we try to get added to the chain is a little over 200 blocks behind - and simply won't get accepted.

I strongly suggest nobody send nothing to nobody until this forking problem gets fixed.
Your bitbars on Cryptsy are safe - unless you try to trnsfer them.
Now is an awesome time to buy them, the price is down about 20%

As always, if some one has better information please share!

Could be turn out to be us on the wrong fork, hate to was the hashrate on a bunch of orphans.
Next two weeks I'm going to be stuck in New York. I hope something starts moving along by the time I get back.
Cryptsy has my ticket marked as "Pending Wallet/Network Fix" so all I can do is wait.

It looks as if me and 1 other person are the only people mining the whole network and we are both @ mastermining. I don't know of any other public pools that host BTB and you said you are mining something else right now. diff is down to like 14ish. I can tell the network hashrate is off @ mastermining but I think it suppossed to be .02GH instead of the .02MH it's showing. ouch, BTB dipped down to like .0015BTC right now. hmm should I move some BTC or not move some BTC? That is the question...

I wish Cryptsy would get Franko squared away already also.

welp, I tried to withdraw from Cryptsy and the site says there was confirmation but I never received the coins.. I checked the block explorer they have listed in the BTB coin information page on Cryptsy and it is dead. I put in a ticket about the dead link and gave them btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com and they were like "Thanks a million buddy" and that's it...

Thinking it was fixed, I tried a test withdraw and no go..so still on a fork i guess. diff is like around 25 now according to their coin info page and like 7ish on the BTB.cryptocoinexplorer.com I guess since there are more people on that fork, Cryptsy will be sticking with it. But how do we get on that fork??? I wish i knew how to code, I would make this impossible to happen again somehow..


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread

The research I conducted left more broken links, and non-support for Bitbar.

Out of the nine or ten pools that have mined BTB once, the only one left working is mastermining...

Their hash rate has decreased significantly, to about 1.5 mh.

This leads me to conclude that there is an entity out there with more hashing power than the entire network being monitored by Cryptocoinexplorer.com and mined by mastermining.

Basically they are solo mining the chain, the chain that Cryptsy seems to be accepting.

If they say, (cryptsy) they they have confirmed that bitbar has been sent to your account, I would take the address you gave them, dump the private Key in your Qt client, and save it somewhere with the arbitrary amount they say is assigned to that address.

I'm going to email Dreamwatcher @ CCE and let him know his block explorer is not being used, or isn't current with cryptsy.

Mastermining really needs to be notified as well... but here's the slippery slope.

When they (MM) take their pool down for maintenance, there will be no public pools mining Bitbar.

None. (At least from what I gather)

Cryptsy's has their BTB wallet in maintenance right now. Guess we will see how it goes. The fork they are on has about 500 blocks more than the one 'we' are on. My gut feeling is that they will stay with the one they are on (I hope I'm wrong..) and we will have to switch - and see how much damage is done. I will probably loose about 60 Bitbars. all well, it's the way it goes sometimes.
I think I will flush the bitbar wallet from my laptop and see how hard it is to switch to the new chain. If successful, I will zip my wallet directory and put it on the Bitbar.co website.  It will take a while.

 Will you consider public mining on your pool when this all gets straightened out? I tried to convince H2C.com to offer it again but the poolmaster said he had a bunch of problems with it before and that there would be no promises of it ever coming back online.


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on October 14, 2015, 02:13:48 AM
It's not that I mind, it's more that I don't think my home network can take much more. My gpu rig is mining diamonds at 20 Mh, my ant miner is chugging along at 2 Th, and my two ASCI rigs are at 45Mh (combined) on top of that, I have a mail server, an ftp server and am hosting about 10 websites all on my home DSL network. keep in mind that the pool server has about six wallets running and my desktop computer has 4 or five wallets running.

Netflix is starting to stutter.

Let's get past this little forking issue, pull the BTB community together a bit, and see about getting a wallet developer on board. Once that is handled, or we can show there is progress in the works, more pools will pick up bitbar.

It's a good, sound crypto with a lot going for it already - think how well it will do when we have dev team behind it!

I like the idea of squishing 10 bitcoins together to make a bar, but I don't think the original developers set it up correctly to be that valuable, at lest right now....
the block reward is too high and the pos reward is too high to make the coin/bar that valuable - look at the 42coin, well, i don't think it is pos - but the block reward is so much less - like .000042 per block. at 24 hours of hashing at 40Mh earns about .0031 of a 42coin per day (about .0047 BTC)- at it's current difficulty. 1 full 42coin is worth roughly about 1.83 BTC
With the same hashrate (and this is just a guess) you should pick up about 3 Bitbars a day.

I have no intentions to change the way bitbar works.    (side note: it would be nice if the block time could be reduced to like 90 seconds...)

Maybe down the line we, as a community, can have a discussion on the future of bitbar and decide IF we want to make changes and what they are.

Right now I just want to help strengthen the community support, and get bitbar in the public eye. (and buy a lot of bitbars before the price goes up  -  shh. don't spread it around  ;) )

Please, if anybody has some input, good or bad, please speak up!

available supply now is 20,715 BTB.
But inflation matters, so the question remains: how many coins will be minted over the next 10 years?

I don't know about inflation.
It's my understanding that 500,000 BTB will be mined. I don't know the current hash rate.
Keep in mind that the difficulty and block reward can adjust with each block.
Then there is the POS reward (I think it is %5) - hard to figure if you don't know who is holding.
I suppose you could study the block chain for a while and guess.....

A status update,

As of 10/20/15 Bitbar wallet is still in maintenance mode at cryptsy. I opened a support ticket, and haven't heard back from them as of yet. I sent Mullick a PM here describing the situation as well, and for some possible input/insight but have not gotten a response.

Crypto coin Explorer block Explorer is still connected to at least 9 peers, and still processing blocks. It may be that they are on a correct chain, if in fact cryptsy isn't on a rouge chain as we may suspect. For now, Dreamwatcher will continue to monitor the current chain being monitored at CCExplorer, until definite word/ conclusion can be ascertained from cryptsy.

I also set up an account with Mintsy, which offers dedicated mining contracts. I I am uncertain if they offer mining support for Bitbar, but have contacted their support to see if that is a possibility. I was entertaining the idea of perhaps a Mining contract in order to have dedicated hash power on the chain, to help prevent situations that we may be encountering at the moment. this may be accomplished through crowdfunding, if we can garner the support.

more to come

I had sent Mullick a PM several days ago (1/18/2015) asking if he could put me/us in contact with a reputable developer. I explained free would be awesome - but we as a group could probably scrape some funds together if need be.
I also asked him what would be an acceptable amount for a bounty.

I submitted a ticket to cryptsy on Oct 13th asking for a connection list from their BTB wallet. (how hard can it be - putty/ssh in to the wallet server and type bitbard getpeerinfo and email it to me)
I wanted to start a new wallet on the other fork so I could make a zip file of it to put on the Bitbar.co web site - if it turns out we are on the wrong chain.

I am waiting on replies from both.

Check points are severely outdated.
There is no check point server running anywhere, and the developer 'moved on to other things'.
We are currently looking for a new developer.

As for your coin supply and inflation questions, I'm hoping someone else can jump in and help with that because I simply do not know.

That's a good question I've been asking myself. I just haven't had time to look into it yet.
My concerns are band width.
How many connections, are they constant connections, could my current network configuration handle it, how important is it ??

I've been running servers for over 15 years, and will probably continue until the day I die, so whats one more service ??
I've been planning on looking into that when I get back from NY.

many things to do.....


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: userpike on October 26, 2015, 11:39:03 PM
I have plenty of bandwidth, I just don't know what to do. I'm not finding anything very helpful on the Google either. If the server could run off a Pi, I could do that. I don't know if my computer can handle it, I keep 12 staking wallets running on it 24/7 and the cpu stays around 70% already, plus I do everything thing else imaginable with it also.

On a better note..kinda..but not really.
My BTB wallet has staked 4 times since the 18th...but for 0.0BTB each time.. whats the use? lol I'm thinking there is a smaller amount than what is shown because the dev only set it to show 1 decimal after the . I hope anyway.

I wish this fork thing would hurry up and get right. Cryptsy is taking forever with wallet maintenance, not only on BTB.


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on October 27, 2015, 01:13:01 AM
Cryptsy is really busy - not just the wallets and web site changes, but thier main effort is with all the verification stuff.

My wallet has staked about 60 times ( around 12 times a day) all with 0.00 - at least we aren't loosing BTB.

As far as the check points, I'm starting to think it was just a passing phase, nobody seems to put much stock into it, from what I've been reading.

I've been looking for Jim Blasko on Cryptsys to see if he would be interested in being the dev for Bitbar, or could point me in the right direction. So far no luck - he must have heard I was looking 8)

Haven't heard from Mullick yet....

5mil
Franko
Presstab

He had a forth name but said not to use him unless we were really-really desperate - tended to do bad things to coins, gone a little rouge.
I didn't bother writing that name down.

So I will try and contact the above listed people - and see what happens.

shot a pm to the Moderator mprep, to see about updating the OP, haven't heard back yet.
still haven't heard from Cryptsy about their peer list.
still haven't heard from Mullick.


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread **UPDATED**
Post by: Spidersbox on November 02, 2015, 02:03:36 AM
Dug this out of a post from two years ago.
This should help explain all the 0.00 stake rewards.


My bitbar daemon complains about not being 0.4.1. It's compiled straight from https://github.com/aLQ/bitbar. Where can I get the source for this elusive 0.4.1?

Same here and I have just started a giveaway  :o https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=238328.0
- no rounding for PoS blocks, to address low PoS diff and those small PoS rewards
What does 'no rounding' mean?

Also, how are you in contact with the dev? And are you allowed to give his details?

Not everybody has their bitbar clients connected.
I think not everyone Know the 5% RoI on PoS.
That makes PoS difficulty is very low.
Low diff is why even small transactions can make PoS blocks after very small amount of time, and the reward is minimal.
rounding is up to 2 decimals, rounddown.  Super small rewards ale below rounding are not paid.

ex:

reward of 3.432353 is rounded to 3.43
reward of 3.439865 is rounded to 3.43
reward of 0.009234 is rounded to 0.00

 

POS reward is rounded down - or - the I look at it, everything after the second 0 after the decimal point (.00xxx) is dropped.


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: userpike on November 05, 2015, 10:22:42 PM
That, in my opinion sucks and needs to be changed in the code. Why would you set it to round up or down instead of being accurate..? How much BTB do you need for the stakes to be worth anything?

Bitbar.co
Both Cryptsy and BTER's BTB wallets are offline going on for awhile now and they are the only 2 exchanges that trade BTB afaik. So mine it knowing you might have done it for nothing. I'm guessing, depending on which fork the network takes on as the correct one will determine if you actually have official coins.

just thought I would mention that it takes (I believe) 520 confirmations on a mined block before it 'pays out'. With a 10 minute block time - that's 5200 minutes (86 hours = about 3 1/2 days)

Also, Cryptsy and Bter Bitbar wallets are down because of the fork - which is being worked on.

well, as it seems that the long chain wins out over the short chain - in regards to forks, I have switched over to the other chain.
I was able to sync my desktop wallet to the long chain.
I zipped the chain and put it in the download section of Bitbar.co

The good news is my withdrawals from cryptsy showed up.
The bad news is my mining efforts after 9/24/2015 23:51 PST are orphans.

I suggest everyone back up their wallet.dat (or just rename the Bitbar folder in your C:\Users\<you>\AppData\Roaming folder to OLD-Bitbar) and try again. (for Linux mv .bitbar dot-bitbar)

The chain backup (AppData_bitbar11212015.zip) works for Linux also. - as on widows you will have to move some files around.

Both my desktop and pool server are switched over, so that is two less peers connected to btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com

here are some nodes from the long chain:
addnode=108.61.10.90
addnode=84.74.66.206
addnode=167.160.36.162
addnode=173.65.129.85

I will try and get in touch with cce, mastermind and cryptsy.

I might rethink that decision honestly.

I'm working on a post do give me some time please to explain my position.

http://btb.mastermining.net

The two current Bitbar pools are different Blockheights around 141xxx.

Both pools block explorer points back to http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ however ispace.co does not match the explorer.

Mastermining matches until today, now the explorer is showing a large amount pos blocks coming in 100+ blocks higher that your pool.

There is awallet is loaded with mined blocks that are proof of staking at a high rate due to Low PoS difficulty of the network.

I get coins from mastermining when I mine there but I'm not mining BTB anymore until the shenanigans are over. I'm also waiting on transactions to show up from Cryptsy. Is it possible to have the both chains merge in the next wallet update?


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on November 25, 2015, 05:13:52 PM
ok - so I may have jumped too soon.

block counts at the time of this writing (8:44 am Pacific Coast Time):
CCE 141,380
Mastermining 141,266  -  their BTB pool is in maintenance - so the block count might not be updating
iSpace 141,316

we and our official block explorer - http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/) are the longest (and most stable in my opinion) chain.
I asked our dev, 5mil his thoughts on the fork, and which way Cryptsy was going to go, and thinks the CCE chain is winning.

Sorry about all this flip-flopping, I'm just getting tired of waiting, and wanted to be prepared to get back to mining on which ever chain!

For now, I've got my wallet open and staking, and I pointed 10 KHash of miners at Bitbar - on the CCE chain to help push it along.

Once Cryptsy gets their wallet out of maintenance, I think we should try and get some more pools interested in Bitbar, and see about getting added back to coinwarz.com
Possibly set something up for BTB donations to be used for bounty's and  such.
Maybe have Lukemarshall hold the funds, if he is willing?

Guess I better remove the link for the 'other chain' download, and make a new update for our CCE chain.

Can't really merge the chains. If block 141,300 (for instance) of "ispace chain" doesn't match block 141,300 of "CCE chain" how do you figure out which miner gets the reward - and which one looses?
If it is a short fork, like a day or two, the pending confirmations would turn into orphans (520 confirmations on a mined block takes like - 4 days) but this current fork has gone on for over a month.

As for your wallet, the IP's you added are probably being ignored, so you can leave them if you want, but personally, I would remove them and stick to the IP addresses at http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo)
If your block count is in sync with CCE, feel free to leave your wallet open for staking

I have connected to this node and am  accepting blocks through my wallet.

There is a minimum amount to stake to get rewards in the current code.
Your POS blocks are indeed moving the network along by confirming transactions but if they are small amount, they will not get a reward.

As we know Proof of Stake is a concept Bitbar adopted from peercoin, which gives the currency a variable inflation rate, but also an energy efficient property by allowing holders of the currency to generate blocks for much less energy required by miners. Apparently there was a block reward De-synchronization issue that was noticed and fixed in Bitbar by the Developer of peercoin, Sunny King. This is why currently small rewards are rounded down.
tbar
Rewards also depend on Coin age of transactions. Every transaction is eligible for POS after 30 days, and up to 90 days. If a transaction is left untouched for 30 days, it will begin to try and stake a block on the network. If it stakes at this point, the transaction will split into two smaller equal outputs totaling the initial stake amount.

Take a look on the block explorer here http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/address?address=BJTuq5JSLzRbZyw8xurtYejt5Q4cur8rcq

Notice the transactions that "split" into 9.475BTB from 18.9. They staked after 30ish days and gained a total reward of 0.05 bitbar, very close to the annual .05% inflation rate in the bitbar code.

If one were to not touch the transaction for 90days, it would be considered fully Mature and when it stakes, it would not split into two transactions, and the reward, if eligible, would be added to the original transaction.

Once the transaction is older than 90 days it does gain extra coin age, the the proof of stake reward will not grow past the 90 day full maturity level.

I want to say 4-5BTB would be required at full maturity to stake interest at this time.

Proof of stake difficulty is so low on the network that mined blocks Les than 1btb are staking very easily.

If you want rewards, you will have to combine your mined blocks into a large enough transaction meeting the criteria above to gain reward.
Hope this helps,

I am in contact with Mastermining and he is awair of the multi chain issue. He can sync his pool back to CCE if its determined to be a valid chain.

But first Cryptsy needs to get their wallet synced and up to date. If 5mil is affiliated with cryptsy, I would hope he can work thus issue out and get us back up and running on the exchange.


Woo Hoo downloaded your file and syncing nicely, in fact I got my mined coins too happy days, let's hope the exchanges sort themselves out so I can sell em 😀

Keep in mind we still don't know which chain is to end up as the 'official' chain.
 - just saying ...

Who cares? Its dead and has no life anymore. They have no where to cash out and that could be a good thing - they'll have to wait or help develop a goods & services market to take back their shady coins, instead of selling them now and crash the market.

I noticed ispace.co shows they are mining blocks to a
Wallet Version: v0.4.0-nvc-8-g30741b0-dirty-beta

That sounds kinda shady to me... just sayin

I have 49.7xxx BTB in the wallet. The largest transaction being 15.25xx BTB on 9.18.2015.(from Cryptsy) The rest are around 2 BTB or less each. (from mining @ masterming) So the 22 "stakes" for 0BTB and a total of 44 transactions. So I should send the total balance to myself so its one transaction and that should produce some BTB next time it stakes? Ofcourse, do this, after the fork is figured out.. right?

This is correct.

You will incur a transaction fee sending yourself the full amount, the fee varying depending on the size, but probably between 0.001 & 0.004 destroyed.

Remember Bitbar is an inflationary/deflationary currency, having tx fees destroyed along with POSrewards gained.

When you send yourself 49.7btb, after 30 days the block will want to stake into to two transactions equaling  theoriginal total + 5% annual interest.  

Would look like  49.7 -> 24.95
                                      -> 24.95  based on 30 day value, a gain of 0.20 btb respectivly, 0.10 per tx.

If you waited the full three months it would look like


If you waited any length of time afterward, say one year later, it would still look like


49.7  -> 50.32125 because after 90days the POS reward does not continue to grow

The example I gave above shows a block size close to 10BTB will produce interest after 1 month.

We could speculate that a tx worth 3.33BTB might also skate interest after a 3 month period, but would need to experiment to find out.

So block size isn't that important as long as the output is above the .00999999 cut off/rounding  - at the current difficulty. humm..

Its the reward that has to exceed 0.0099xx in order to be added to the output.

POS Difficulty is less than 0 right now, so low tx are creating blocks with no/rounded down to 0 rewards.

I mentioned varying 5% interest rate in an earlier post meaning as POS difficulty rises, that minimum transaction block that would generate a reward @ full maturity (90 days) may not immediately stake a block and reward having to compete with other stakeholders and an increasing difficulty.

It may indeed take another day, week, month ect. of being open and ready to stake before the block is produced if difficulty dictates, and thus interest would diminish according on the extra time beyond full maturity. (90 days)

I was thinking that the increased pos difficulty would yield a smaller reward, so if the staked block was to small, the reward would fall below the rounding cutoff, but that doesn't make sense now that I typed it. I will have to think about this, to see what I was thinking...

Yes, the block chain forked around the first of October.
Cryptsy and ispace have been on a different fork then the one on our block explorer http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/)

you can check our block explorer at http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/)

you can add these to you're config file:

addnode=167.160.36.162
addnode=btb.altcointech.net

but you may need to delete your blockchain data and resync:

close the bitbar wallet.
make a copy of your wallet.dat file in another directory (plus a copy on a thumb drive would be a very good idea)

delete everything EXCEPT wallet.dat and bitbar.conf from:
C:\Users\<you>\AppData\Roaming\BitBar

and start the wallet up to start downloading the chain.

Ok so I did all that and guess what? It worked yayy, however my coins are still unconfirmed, and I am wondering if they belong to the other fork?

You would most likely loose those coins also.

I suggest not sending any coins at this time.

Noticed a few minutes ago a block on the chain for about 22 BTB had 127 transactions - maybe another pool payout??

I received a message from Mastermining that he would be syncing his pool to the explorer at Cryptocoinexplorer.

It looks like he failed to sync, as I saw a message on the site about it. I have isolated my node and will transmit it to him again to hopefully get things straight over there.

Another thing is when syncing, one can use the command

connect=68.191.93.33 in the bitbar conf file to lock onto my node and sync.

The safest answer I can give you is to backup the addresses you received coins to, perhaps a paper wallet or of the wallet.dat file and come back to it in the future after everyone is on the same chain.

I am on the longest chain, connected to the oldest node but things are not certain even for that.

It sucks, but thus isn't the first time anyone has lost due to split chains.

I myself have been a victim of pools going rouge in the past (anyone remember diggers pool?)

until there is more infrastructure surrounding bitbar all we can do is try to help eachother out by spreading information.

Speaking of, I am excited to share some information concerning possible future developments....

more to come

Should I take the wallet offline the one with the unconfirmed coins? Just keep it as back up?

When I messing with my wallets, I close the wallet if it is running, I copy and paste the Bitbar directory - that way everything is backed up - including the chain you were on.
Once that is done, you can mess with whatever you want, because if you screw it up, you can just delete the Bitbar directory, rename 'copy of Bitbar' back to bitbar, and you are back to where you started.

If you want to start fresh (once you have a backup copy) you can delete everything in the Bitbar folder except the wallet.dat, and bitbar.conf files, start up the bitbar-qt.exe and it will start syncing the chain.


To start out, you can do as Luke suggested and put:
connect=68.191.93.33
in your bitbar.conf file.

After you are caught  up, change the 'connect=' to 'addnode=' and add some of the nodes listed at http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo)

also remember to add:
irc=0
listen=1

Spiderboxes advise is a good way to go. I would say keep your wallet up, when you sync if your bars are still unconfirmed copy the received address and go to the console, dumpprivkey and save it. Back up the wallet and save it to some sort of digital medium (the private key can be saved on paper)

Depending on what chain the exchanges sync to, the bars may confirm or turn to orphan blocks.

I would then make a fresh wallet knowing that I have those potential bars backed up, for the fact that I would not want that constant reminder when I look at the qt client.

Ultimately the decision is yours, but having a wallet online and synced is a big help to everyone in terms of connectivity.

I want to reassure people about their wallets during this chain fork.

The wallet.dat files' primary purpose is to store the private keys to the addresses you own.

It does contain a mini ledger of sorts so that the client/daemon does not have to re-scan the entire blockchain every time you start it.

The transaction/balance information in the wallet.dat file is not "canon" so to speak. It is really just there for display purposes.

The true balance/transaction information is in the block chain itself. When the Client/daemon detects that the blockchain might not match the ledger in the wallet file, it will re-scan the blockchain and correct the balance/transaction information in the wallet.dat. This normally happens when a chain reorganization takes place, or a new/different wallet.dat file is presented.

When the resolution of a fork occurs, all transactions on the rejected fork no longer exist. If person A sent 10 coins to person B and they were on the rejected fork, person A would have the 10 coins back in his wallet and person B would have never received those coins because the transaction no longer exists.

The people that have the potential to lose coins are those who mined POW blocks on the rejected chain. Those will be lost.
Although the coins gained on the rejected chain through POS would disappear, the coins that were used to stake a block would still have the same maturity as if the fork did not happen and will stake new blocks on the correct chain.

Take all the precautions you wish, whatever makes you comfortable. When the correct chain is decided, your client/daemon will automatically adjust your wallets ledger.


ETA: This only applies to transactions after the fork. Any transactions before the fork are unaffected.

To let the community know.

I have sponsored the node and block explorer @ Cryptocoinexplorer for the next year in hope that it can be continued to be used as a tool for the bitbar community. The Explorer is run by Dreamwatcher, a respected member of the crypto community whos dedication and experience speak for itself.

Through my correspondences with Dreamwatcher, I shared updates on the status of Bitbar...

The Bitbardev going offline (leaving the project?)

Mullicks involvement I'm early 2015,

The lack of any dedicated Developer/coder on the project at this time.

I reached out to Dreamwatcher about potentially working on Bitbar after hearing the outcry for development from the community. I figured he would be a logical choice in heading up the project after his original coding of CCE,  his work on multiple types of crypto-currencies of the star trek theme, and the online exchange of said cryptos.

I feel like we are at a stage where with the proper Coding Developer, and the dedication of community involvement, we can turn the tide on Bitbar, and be proud of having taken part in doing so.

With the renewal of CCE for 2016, Dreamwatcher has expressed interest in further development of bitbar, as a Dev . We need a proper developer.

I'm sure he will weigh in here, as he has in the past. But the prospect of this becoming a reality drove me to inform the community now.

I welcome any opinions and support for this move forward.

I haven't been in touch with 5mil for a few days, my last communication with him was last Thursday:
Quote
so the natives are getting restless on bitcointalk, and was wondering if you could pop on and announce and plans you might have, thoughts on what to do about the forks...
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=196125.580
but haven't heard back - maybe he is having second thoughts ??

If Dreamwatcher is willing to develop Bitbar than WOO-HOO!  I'm all in.

It was beginning to look like I was going to have to learn how to do it.

Perhaps we can get an updated wallet - nothing major:
change the dnsseed from bitbar.biz to btb.altcointech.net
add a few current checkpoints

Once there is a wallet with a newer version, we can tell everybody to update. Hopefully, with the new checkpoints, we can finally get every one (including the exchanges!) on the same chain.


(then onto the wish list - like coin control  :) )

I'm glad to see Bitbar moving forward again. It sucks people are going to lose bars.
I'd still like to see some inventive way to zip all the chains together like a zipper, if that makes any sense (not a .zip) and then build a new chain out of them somehow. Then everyone would sync to the new chain and every transaction is there and normal wallet behavior resumes. Maybe some crazy algorithm could compute a new chain out of the old ones somehow? Or recode the wallet so it syncs with all the chains(whut?). Once everyone updates, where there would be clashes in transactions make it so there are "bloated" blocks so block 12345-a is in with 12345-b and 12345-c.
Please pardon my ignorance if you are laughing at me right now. lol I am serious though.

If you could mine your own chain, all by yourself (which would make for a very low difficulty), then hack it into a real chain so you could sell your coins - who else would be doing it ??

The chain forked somewhere between Sept. 18, 2015 and Sept. 30, 2015
I had a successful withdrawal from Cryptsy 09/18/2015 - block 132679
my withdrawal failed 09/30/2015 somewhere around block 134000
we are at block 142954 at the time of this writing.

So roughly 10,000 blocks (so far) won't match each other from the different chains.
I would guess that 80% of those blocks are stakes for 0.00 btb, leaving about 2,000 blocks of pos/pow/transfers (rough estimates)

I believe Cryptsy will do their best to fix the withdrawals.

Looks like Mastermining is re-syncing his wallet.
Noticed a few minutes ago a block on the chain for about 22 BTB had 127 transactions - maybe another pool payout??

I received a message from Mastermining that he would be syncing his pool to the explorer at Cryptocoinexplorer.

It looks like he failed to sync, as I saw a message on the site about it. I have isolated my node and will transmit it to him again to hopefully get things straight over there.

Another thing is when syncing, one can use the command

connect=68.191.93.33 in the bitbar conf file to lock onto my node and sync.



He is still off the chain, and mining.

their 'current' block is  142,248
our  current  block  is  142,946
ispace current block is 142,570

I have a better idea - -

WE HAVE AN UPDATED WALLET !!

OK, so it's just the linux wallet. The windows wallet should be compiled and ready in about six hours - I'm still at work.

Wallet:
"version" : "v0.4.3.004-1-ge4d156c-beta"

link:
git clone https://github.com/Bitbarcoin/bitbar.git

updates:
default irc set to 0
dnsseed changed from bitbar.biz to btb.altcointech.net
removed the irritating "wallet is too old" message  -  we don't have a checkpoint server at this time.
Added new checkpoints  -  will help with staying on the correct chain when starting over

all you need in your bitbar.conf file is:
rpcuser
prcpassword

if you want to add more nodes, please get them from:
http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo)

 i issue certain commands to the daemon i receive a termination error.

this is an old coin and it uses boost 1.47 (I think - might be 1.37)
this is what I used for boost:
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev

It's the DB that caused me the problems. this coin uses Berkeley DB   4.8.30.NC:
sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev
sudo apt-get install libdb4.8++-dev

but the newer Ubuntu (desktop and server) can't find the files.
I had to do a web search to find a way to do it.   not that hard.


I'm running NOMP with this wallet, and haven't had any problems.

Let me know how it goes -
There are several people looking for pools they can use!

always backup your wallet.dat file

no changes need to be done to your bitbar.conf file - you don't even need one now  8)


If your block count does not match http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/) please remove everything except your wallet.dat file from C:\Users\-your name-\AppData\Roaming\BitBar and re-download the chain - simply by running bitbar-qt.exe  that will get you back on the right fork.

Ok, so my rpc password does match in both the pool config and bitbar.conf files. I think that is working because the debug log in Bitbar shows the rpc request from node "gettransactions".

So it looks like an issue with the wallet when the "gettransactions" call is issued Im guessing there aren't any due to it being a new install. Any thing jump out at you? Maybe I'm missing something obvious....

I sent an email to mastermining and ispace.
submitted a ticket to cryptsy about the wallet update - I sure Mullick will have to look through the code to make sure nothing 'weird' was added.

good catch on the bte/btc link - I thought I checked that !

So it looks like an issue with the wallet when the "gettransactions" call is issued Im guessing there aren't any due to it being a new install. Any thing jump out at you? Maybe I'm missing something obvious....

the bitbard getinfo seemed to work well.
Do you get any errors if you do:
bitbard listtransactions     -or-
bitbard listaccounts

If those work, then I think the wallet database is working ok.

I have a couple of thoughts:
1) Are you running a firewall, blocking any ports??


         (I am unfamiliar with Centros, so this might not work)

2) compile bitbar from source using:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
sudo apt-get install libdb4.8-dev        *this may give you trouble
sudo apt-get install libdb4.8++-dev
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev

make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=-

- why:
Boost is complaining a lot, and interacts with some of the other dependencies. I'd like to make sure you are using the same libraries.
The boost errors have to do with the RPC calls. (rpc problems keep popping up. humm)

3) you might not like this one:
switch to Ubuntu server (or desktop) It is what I am using and could provide links to step by step instructions on how to set up Ubuntu and NOMP.
guess I could add a link anyway:
scratch that - the web site has been down for a while. I will just have to add it to Bitbar.co when I have time..

just had a thought -
I have to use sudo to start my nomp - it would give errors (but I don't remember what they are) if I don't use sudo:

sudo node init.js     <-- try this first

Let me know how it goes

I tried to send btb to myself and it says the transaction was rejected. the msg says: "Error. The transaction was rejected. This might happen if some coins in your wallet were already spent, such as you used a wallet.dat and coins were spent in the copy but not marked as spent here." What now?

I assume you are in sync with CCE, and have made a backup of your wallet.dat

If the coins in your wallet were gained from a different chain - like mined from a pool that was on a different chain, the tx information will not match anything on this chain. ( 'this chain' being the one followed be CCE) making those coins orphans.
I don't know the order in which the coins are removed from your wallet, but it sounds like it tried to send coins from a different chain.

Did you remove everything in your bitbar folder except wallet.dat and let the wallet sync fresh ??
That's what I would try first.
The second thing I would try, and it might not help at all, but what the heck - is open a command prompt and start the wallet like this:
bitbar-qt.exe -rescan
that will Rescan the block chain for missing wallet transactions,and hopefully mark the 'bad' ones as orphaned.

If that doesn't help, the next step would be to export your private keys, rename the bitbar directory, and start over.(and import key)
This step may not be possible with bitbar wallets so far, I don't remember seeing those commands in the bitbar help. It might be from litecoin or bitcoin - I will have to investigate.

I would also wait to make sure Cryptsy joins our chain, before sending any bitbars.
If you are on one chain and send coins (even to yourself) the transaction gets put into the chain your wallet is on. It doesn't matter if the coins are from two years ago or not. IF for some reason Cryptsy goes with a different chain (I don't see why they would) the coins you sent would become orphans. (you burnt them)
I don't see that happening, but why take the chance, when all you have to do is wait a little more (I know it sucks)

Post by: userpike on December 19, 2015, 08:34:00 AM
I totally forgot about Cryptsy not being on board yet... oh well.. jumped the gun. I'm hoping now that because it said the tx was rejected that the coins didn't go anyware in the first place, although it did debit the tx fee out of my wallet anyway.. and then my wallet balance doubled...yeah you read it right. lol With coin control we could pick out the transactions on the wrong chain and discard them couldn't we?

You can't discard with coin control, but you can choose which coins to send.

The wallet updates were fairly simple, and did not touch anything to do with transactions.
The coin control will be a while down the road. It will take a month or two to test, sending coins, waiting to see if they stake. Don't want to do that with real bitbars.

if you got to http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo) and look at the peer list - right hand column -
the new wallet sub version is Bitbar (instead of Satoshi)

It seems H2C is but ispace looks to be on a different one still. ..and using the 4.0 wallet it looks like also. I thought they switched over also already.
mastermining showed on the peer list at CCE but has been gone for a while.  His btb pool is still down for maintenance, maybe he didn't like loosing all those bitbars they mined for a month+ on a wrong chain ??


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: lukemarshall on December 21, 2015, 09:30:56 PM
I don't think anyone likes losing coins due to mining the wrong fork.

 Looks to me like Mastermining is trying, he snyced for a time with CCE @ blockheight 145041, but his large amount of small transaction with high coin age (coupled with the low difficulty of POS) staked the network at a very fast rate until it broke onto its own fork again after block 145244... and left CCE Peerlist

I believe his wallet to be staking itself and not communicating with the network.A fix for this would be a simple resnyc, but upon a resync send the entire wallets contents to itsself to stop the POS extravaganza.

Mastermining, This would also bee beneficial as you would be able to earn interest on your total after 30days.

Good luck

I'd guess 4-5 btb is a big enough block -
It has to be 30 days old to start staking.
There is a FAQs on the web site Bitbar.co (http://Bitbar.co)

You can witness the surge of new hash on the blockchain... 200+ POW blocks in the first couple hours after they re-joined the network @ block 145433

Thanks for helping here.

Running Centos 6.7 and i used this script to install but modified it for Bitbar: https://github.com/mikeminneman/dogecoind-centos

Ok, so my rpc password does match in both the pool config and bitbar.conf files. I think that is working because the debug log in Bitbar shows the rpc request from node "gettransactions".

Heres my Bitbar wallet "getinfo" - (I started a new wallet so its just downloading again)

Of course - the more the merrier. I only know of Cryptsy and Bter.
We also need more pools.

I will contact some of the exchange like PoloniEx, Bittrex, C-Cex, Allcoin and Bleutrade. (because H2C monitors them right on the site)

I have mailed to Yobit about Bitbar, lets see if we can be listed next week but too remember to share the volume in so many exchanges is not good for the delisting  risk
Trade volume is a problem. I've been trying to do more trades on Cryptsy, but nothing is moving.
24 hour volume is 0.00078046 BTC (0.26 BTB)
Only 25 coins (out of 297 coins listed) have a 24 hour volume above 1 BTC so it's not just Bitbar.

Bittrex has an information page on accepting new cryptos to their exchange.

A couple requirements..

Submitting a Coin to Bittrex - Updated 11/16/15
...

To help speed up the process of deploying your coin, we require the following information sent to support@bittrex.com:

Coin Name
Coin trading symbol - Please verify that your preferred symbol is not already in use on our exchange or any other.  There are a number of services that track coin prices that require the symbols to be unique. Even if the symbol is not on our exchange anymore, we won't reuse it.  Consider your symbol carefully because we will not change it once it is set
A logo for your coin - png format with a transparent background.  The logo should be square with dimensions of 1000x1000 pixels with no white space on its border and no taglines.  It should only be a logo and expect it to show up in multiple spots in the Bittrex UI.
Launch Date (past or future)
Github Link - We only accept source code.  We will not run a binary that you provide us.  
Did you raise money/bitcoin to launch your coin?  (i.e. a CFC/ICO)
Did you have a premine?  How much is it?  Is it escrowed?
What is the max money supply for your coin?
Exchanges you are currently on
Official blockchain explorer
What is your TxFee for a transaction
Any social media information such as your official website, twitter account, facebook page, subreddit, etc.
Optional information that heavily influences us:

Have a clearly stated purpose for your coin.  Why does it exist and what makes it unique?  If your ANN thread only has coin specs on it, you are not going to get listed on Bittrex.  
Proof of identity and Identity Disclosure:  We provide identity verification if you are willing to provide verifiable identification documents directly to us.  We will require a picture of your identification and a second picture of you holding the id where your face and id are clearly visible.
Get your source code reviewed by a trusted member of the community
Information about your coin:  What is the concept behind your coin? If you have previously been listed on Bittrex, what has changed with your coin since then?
If you are interested in providing information to traders of your coin in our user interface, see Submitting Coin Information for the Bittrex UI
If you run a crowdfunding campaign on another platform and would like to get listed, the following additional requirements

...'..........


I couldn't link the page, but a search online brings up the entire page.

I can do most of that.
I just need some more specific information (for the web site too) in a nice little paragraph I can cut & paste.
1) why does it exist.
2) what makes it unique - I can use the info on our OP, but it sounds a lot like other coins.
3) concept behind your coin - this confuses me, isn't this the same as #2 ??

Well I wouldn't think that Cryptsy would delist since that have the wallet down for quite awhile. They get it fixed they may see volume increase. :)
But of course they have many  wallets down right now.

last i checked they had like 60 or so wallets down. most of them including BTB have been down for months.

But on a good note, ispace's BTB pool is now out of maintenance mode and has about 25MH on it.

I've been out of town all week, hope everybody's New Year has started off well!

Bit Bar is now in the voting section of Cryptopia and NEEDS YOUR VOTE

They do it two ways:
1)  DOT Voting
Each week the coin with the most DOT votes will be added to the Cryptopia Any coin that reaches 2000000 DOT votes will be listed on Cryptopia immediately.

2)  Community Voting
Each month the coin with the most commmunity votes will be added to the Cryptopia
Each registered user receives 1 vote for each coin each day.

immediate listing is 2000000 DOT
at this time dot is selling at 0.00000014 btc
2000000 * 0.00000014 = 0.28 btc (although you would have to go to 17 sat to get 2 million DOT's)


Bit bar now has 40,000 votes  ;D

please join and vote!

Congratulations on a new exchange, Bitbar community. Get ready to make the market. I hope all the BTB isn't stuck on Cryptsy

I traded the hell out of BTB back in the day. Its good to see an active community still around it.

It would be good to get a tradeable quantity of BTB over to Cryptopia.

Nothing says dead coin more than a dead market.

Cryptopia also has explorers, mining, a market and some other tools for those interested to take advantage of. Get over the trollbox and talk it up a little.

Anyone know how to separate Bitbars in a wallet.dat? It seems that no matter what the amount I try to move I get the same error as before. ..and still it keeps charging tx fees.. >:(

I would like to somehow move only the coins I can use to a new wallet address or something.. :-\




I'm glad to see BTB listed over @ cryptopia. This is the first time I've heard of them. From what I've seen so far, I like it.   ..and finally we can trade BTB again.. ;D

..now if i can just get the bars out I can use that would be great.

I sure am mining to a new address on a new wallet.dat now though.

As of yet - the bitbar wallet doesn't have any coin control features that will allow you to select which transactions to use.

Isolate your old address and copy it.

In the Console use the feature dumpprivkey (your address here)

You will receive a private key corresponding to that single address.

In your new wallet go to the console and use the feature importprivkey (your private key)

That address and the funds it hold will be transferred to your new wallet.

Repeat this process for any addresses that hold Bitbar.

Hope this helps & Good luck

Thanks for the info but will this work even though I have some BtB from 2 maybe 3 chains in the same wallet address? some mined from mastermining, some mined from H2C a long time ago before btb was taken off the pool the first time and some from Cryptsy

What errors are you getting ??

I have received that error several times.  sometimes just waiting a while and trying again helped.
Size is a problem too since mining makes many small transactions.
Sending just 10 BTB (of mined trans) is 7k
Larger blocks cost more, and 'seem' to be harder to send. I've had the same problems sending Emerald.

I made a new wallet on my laptop and am going to spend the next few days sending small amounts.

In case you were wondering, I even tried the older wallets, and it didn't help.

it also took the transfer amount out of my balance. had to rescan.

I would do as lukemarshall suggested and dumpprivkey, exit the wallet program, rename the wallet.dat (wallet-old.dat works for me), start the wallet again to generate a new wallet, then importprivkey.
and wait an hour or so for the wallet to rescan for missing transactions on the 'new' address.

I was messing with it last night, and reduced the size of my wallet.dat file by 8K, and got rid of the studdering. haven't tried transfers yet

I just did the dump deal and now all my bars are on the new wallet.dat The file size dropped from 264KB to 216KB I noticed only the new receive address shows up in the receive coins tab. So does this mean all these bars are usable and I haven't lost any in another fork since they are all here???

All your bitbars should be spendable. The one's received while on the other chain have been marked as orphans because the tx information didn't match the chain you are on now. I find it strange your old address doesn't show on the receive tab.

ok. so the accounts you imported should be in your address book. If you left click on it and pick edit, you can put in the old account name - that is if you named it in your old wallet.
When I renamed the account - it magically moved to my receive coins tab.
Isn't learning fun  ;D

here is a link for the windows Bitbar-qt wallet that has several added features: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1cnD3W8c0jtdGlxUFEySmZrbWM/view?usp=sharing (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1cnD3W8c0jtdGlxUFEySmZrbWM/view?usp=sharing)

Added Wallet to the main menu, and moved the wallet related features into it, plus added check wallet and repair wallet.

Added coin control to the "Send coins" tab.
Now, in list mode, you can group smaller amounts together in one by sending them to yourself (or other addresses). The tx fee still applies.

The windows qt wallets are static complied, meaning you don't need all those dll's.
You can unzip the file and place the exe on your desktop and run it from there.

As always - backup, backup, backup   :)


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on January 10, 2016, 09:08:11 PM
A few things to think about:
When using the coin control to combine your blocks, you will be making a new block.
It will take 30 days before the new block will start staking.

The Fee on the form is just an estimate.
I have several thousand transfers for 0.002829 (from my pool cut)
when I group 100 of these together, the transfer amount will be 0.2829 and the .0001 fee will not apply.

Bitbar charges more for smaller amounts, to help reduce dust - the fee for such a small amount starts at .001

Then there is a fee for larger size blocks. The block size was roughly ~14878 (14k) when I grouped 100 blocks together.
The total fee was .0015 BTB

If you keep the byte count below 10,000 your fee should be .001 for blocks under 1 BTB

efing sick man!!

there is a tree view, and a list mode. - check list mode that should show individual blocks.

Do the wallet repair and see what happens. I've had several failed attempts. The amount is taken - then it fails - but it doesn't put the amount back.
Wallet repair put it back for me.

I've been having a few problems connecting too. Also noticed the blockchain has been pausing a little.

the wallet automatically connects to btb.altcointech.net and gets connections from there.
you can still use bitbar.conf
it might be a good idea anyway just in case there is network problems connecting to btb.altcointech.net

Nothing special.
Make sure you have the right user and password setup in the paymentProcessing and daemons area of the nomp/pools_config/bitbar.json (or whatever you named it)

oh, and double check the wallet address against what you have in the pools_config file ( bitbard getaddressesbyaccount "" )

My connection count is 0 at this point. not sure what to do. We don't need a .CONF any longer I thought so I deleted mine when the new wallet came out. (ver. 4.3 less CC)
the wallet automatically connects to btb.altcointech.net and gets connections from there.

I think they forgot to pay some bills..


I do have connections now with those nodes.

That reminds me:
To let the community know.

I have sponsored the node and block explorer @ Cryptocoinexplorer for the next year in hope that it can be continued to be used as a tool for the bitbar community.

lukemarshall was kind enough to pay the sponsorship at CCE - which runs (is) the btb.altcointech.net node. At around $300 usd a year, I don't think he is going to be willing to do it year after year.
We have been discussing this issue, and I think it is about time to come up with a BTB Donation wallet & address.
I 'think' I have Luke talked into taking on this responsibility.
If anybody has any objections to lukemarshall as 'treasury officer' please speak up.

One of the things on the 'list of things to do' for the BitBar wallet is to include an option to redirect a percentage of stake reward to a different BTB account.
This will be a range from 10% to 50% set by the user, if the user enables it.
The address to which the funds are sent can be any BTB address.

You can use this function to automatically send funds to an exchange, to a separate wallet for savings, or even to our donation address. All controlled by you, not hidden somewhere in the wallet code.

The hopes are that we can get enough funds to cover the cost of our sponsored node and perhaps other projects like faucets, advertising, bounty and ??

The future is bright, like sunlight off a golden BitBar!

I have been having problems as of late with connections, and the blockchain has been pausing every once and a while. I guess it's to be expected.
What I do is shut down the wallet, remove the debug.log file (so It's easier to read), remove the peers.dat file and start the wallet again. Sometimes I just turn the computer off, grab a beer and read.
(Not that I'm telling you to partake in the consumption of alcohol, 'cause it tends to make your posts (or mine) a little winded.)

I've noted recently using getpeerinfo, that I've not been connected to altcointech.net at IP 167.160.36.162 on a couple of my wallets, but my pool server is. - just an interesting note.

When having difficulties connecting - you can change the addnodes in your config to several of the nodes listed at CCE - add as many as you would like. The list does change from time to time as wallets connect.

Just some cosmetics.
Added a logo on the overview tab, and some color to the wallet.
May have gone a little overboard - let me know what you think.

I like how the transactions tab came out but it bothers me about the coins on the other tabs. I think they should be gold bars or stacks of bars because its Bitbar. The background @ CCE comes to mind when i think of Bitbar. Not saying it should be the same but something like it, the stacks of gold bars.

It's still stuck, even after the new DL. I decided to delete the blockchain and redownload. I deleted my conf so it would download from default location. If it hangs I will get the blockchain from bitbar.co and see what happens.

Mine has hung up a few times as well. I've tested with the Mullick wallet and had the same results, so I am confident that the new wallets are sound.
Besides, none of the code for networking, staking, or database has changed.

I have removed everything except my wallet and started over just to see what would happen. It hung a couple of times, and each time it hung, I shut it down, removed the db.log,debug.log and peers.dat
After two tries, I'm synced now.

Have you guys read the Cryptsy blog yet? I guess we won't be getting our pending Bitbars from them.....ever.... I think it might be worse than Mt GoX.. 13000 BTC and 300000 LTC stolen

I have/had 325 BTB plus a bunch more. My portfolio was 5.13 BTB
I started 17 months ago with only .33 BTB - I can do it again.
Luckily I had pulled 1.2 BTB worth of some of my coins, but I couldn't get my BTB,LTC or WDC fast enough.
I hope Cryptsy comes back, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I was paranoid and never kept much at Cryptsy. Do you mean your port was 5.13 BTC? I had a 14 day trade volume close to that once but my portfolio was less than 1 BTC always.


as soon as I heard people having issues i withdrew everything I could and only deposit what i wanted to trade out. Somehow i managed to get out of Cryptsy only losing about 2 BTB, which is stuck in pending tx from when the forks happened.


I never got to use my Cryptsy points though, not that there were many anyway.

I'm saving BTC and alts right now. I'm not ready to graduate from my S5. I have scrypt asics suckin up my electric right next to it also, so I am tapped out with the electricity atm...(so the gf says..) She would most likely not be happy if an S7 arrived...lol Our bill in the summer creeps up in the $400 range, one time $518..haha she freaked out, blamed my gear and not the 17 year old AC...(I live in hot a$$ FL. I will only complain about it during the summer..and 80+F degree Christmases..) then I had to explain to her the the dryer is rated @ 5400 watts because she saw spikes in the middle of the night in electric from me being a good bf and running the laundry while out in the shed vapin it up, watching *our*(she could care less) crypto "fortune" grow. She thought it was my gear again! lol

She actually didn't believe I could buy stuff with BTC so I sure showed her! The first thing I ever bought was to prove i could and it was one of those velcro door screens from overstock.com it was kinda funny.

no I hadn't heard that about cryptsy. Hopefully people get their coins back.

If I could find a way to use the heat coming off the mining equipment to preheat the water going into the water heater I might get away with some new gear haha I have put ducting in so that most of the hot air is vented outside the shed.

I don't mine there so I don't know how they deal with stuff. I do know they where on different blockchain for a while, so that might have something to do with it.
mastermining is still down (for BTB).
I wonder if Cryptopia could add Bitbar to thier mining, I'll have to go check.
Maybe if other people are interested in mining at Cryptopia, they might add it ??

Unfortanatly at the time Cryptopia is having some problems with the mining pools and I dont think there adding anything till they get it running again.
I am going to try solo mining and see what happens but I have read alot of complaints saying that solo mined coins wont send out of the wallet.I will try it and see what happens.

You could ask Cryptopia to add it to their pools when they get the probs fixed,I am sure they will consider it  ;)

EDIT:
Ok so solo ming seems to be working for me,I am on the network and detecting new blocks.
This is my conf file and launch commands,I am using cgminer 3.1.1 hope it helps.

Conf - bitbar.conf file goes in AppData/Roaming/BitBar folder:
listen=1
daemon=1
server=1
rpcuser=YOURNAME
rpcpassword=YOURPASSWORD
rpcallowip=localhost
rpcthreads=499

addnode=173.65.129.85:8777
addnode=5.20.100.185:8777

Launch - I use a .bat file in the cgminer folder to launch the miner :
cgminer.exe --scrypt -o http://localhost:9344 -u NAME -p PASSWORD --chips-count 6 --ltc-clk 321 --nocheck-golden -S //./COM6 -S //./COM7 -S //./COM13

It appears there may be another fork that a majority amount of miners have switched to.

The coin daemon and explorer at CCE are in sync with each other but there are only a half dozen or so peers connected to the daemon.

So again, the community needs to decide which fork to use. The issue I have is which chain should I try to resync the coin daemon on CCE, if I should resync at all.

That is the way I'm leaning - keep the exchanges and the pools happy, plus the fork the explorer is on isn't moving at all.
btw I transfered 20 btb to Bter but it never showed - so they might not be on the same fork as cryptopia and ispace.

I have had success mining and receiving payouts at hash-to-coins.com. But haven't sent any to an exchange since Cryptsy.

I might try the solo mining thing above. i like bfgminer but never could get it to solo mine with my asics. i see cgminer is used above.

I don't understand why bitbar keeps forking. Whats different in the code from other coins that don't act in the manner bitbar has?

The community should go with the fork that both BTER and Cryptopia hopefully are both on. Default to the exchanges, and always addnode the exchanges in your wallet.
That is the way I'm leaning - keep the exchanges and the pools happy, plus the fork the explorer is on isn't moving at all.
btw I transfered 20 btb to Bter but it never showed - so they might not be on the same fork as cryptopia and ispace.


I have had success mining and receiving payouts at hash-to-coins.com. But haven't sent any to an exchange since Cryptsy.

Yea I am a bfgminer fan too but it always refused to solo mine for me so I had to move to an alternative.Theres a couple out there but this one works best IMO.Good luck.

We need to figure this fork thing out fast though,I dont know if I should buy or sell.I've been buying at Cryptopia but need to know if we are staying on that fork before spending more BTC.

Code wise, it's the same as just about every other crypto out there. You can basically cut and paste from one to the other.
I think the biggest problem is the spread (or lack of) of hashing power. We could use some more pools.

Post by: lukemarshall on January 23, 2016, 07:24:05 AM
So my wallets are in sync with ispace and cryptopia, but not cce.
Anybody else ??

note: cce is almost 190 minutes from last block.

It appears there may be another fork that a majority amount of miners have switched to.

The coin daemon and explorer at CCE are in sync with each other but there are only a half dozen or so peers connected to the daemon.

So again, the community needs to decide which fork to use. The issue I have is which chain should I try to resync the coin daemon on CCE, if I should resync at all.


I recall Bitbar using checking, rather checkpointing in the past. Is there any way to get a check point server going to stop the forking

I think a re-sync is in order and some ideas on checkpoint servers,

So there is talk of alternate Bitcoin Clients that could work together, but certain features would be present in One version, butabsent in another. Perhaps applied to Bitbar as an alternate checkpointing client... working with user clients.

I though 5mil had a checkpoint server running, I'll have to check with him.
So we have cce re-sync correct?

I don't think BTER even has their Bitbar clients running. I attempted a test withdrawal nearly a month ago, submitted a support ticket and got a simple "thanks"

The two big hashing pools and Cryptopia seem to be running the show right now

If you recall BTER was hacked for quite a large amount a year or ago. It is very well possible they are operating in the same manner as Cryptsy had.

I would try to send from bter to cryptopia, but as I said above, my deposit from last week hasn't gone through.

The OP was updated last month and most everything is current with he exception of cryptsy, and I haven't given up hope on them yet.
I do need to get Cryptopia added though, thanks for the reminder.

Good and bad news  ;)

Good news - I finished coding the markets module of CCE for the Cryptopia API.  The BTB explorer on CCE now has Cryptopia in the market header.

Bad news:

I believe we are looking at a hard fork due to a client update.

After a complete fresh chain download with addnodes that were given to me on the longer chain, the daemon on CCE ended up on the same block (150545).

It appears the clients responding with the subversion "/Bitbar:0.7.4/" are on the chain that is about block 150882.

The clients (including CCE) that are on subversion  "/Satoshi:0.7.4/" are on the chain that is on block 150545.


So now the question is, which client version is going to become the official client?

The newer version is the Bitbar version.
It has been updated with btb.altcointech.net as the seednode, where as the older versions have bitbar.biz as the seed node.

last checkpoint is ( 141550, uint256("0x0000000014b26064d91f70baed8561e6642d71fcbac3b38bf24f6fe262212792"))

It is most likely that those coins where from the incorrect block chain and are invalid coins,if you have resynced to the proper chain now and they are gone then that is probably the case and I am sorry to say they where never real coins and as such you never had them and wont get them back.

This is the problem that occurs when a blockchain forks.

This is not the only possible reason though and there may be hope for them but I wouldnt count on it,sorry and good luck M8.

Yes,the correct chain is the one Cryptopia is on,to make sure you stay on it, add the nodes they are in sync with to a conf file and place it in your AppData/Roaming/BitBar folder.

A couple of post back I put info for solo mining and you can find a copy of the .conf file you need there.

WoW,I have only ever owned 12 bitbar so I cant imagine your pain in loosing so many,sad to say I am going to guess the coins on cryptsy are no good as the chain has forked several times since cryptsy BTB wallet last worked.

My guess is the bitbar transactions were done on a forked chain. Both you and the sender where on the same fork, which is why the transactions were confirmed in your wallet.
When you re-synced your wallet, it's like the transactions never happened.

If the sender was to re-sync their wallet (and repairwallet) the missing 119.88 BTB would (in theory) re-appear, and they could make a new transfer.

"in theory" was stated because it depends where the original Bitbars came from.
If the Bitbars were mined/minted from a chain fork, (like a pool was on a wrong fork), they only exist on that fork.

This is where it gets REAL confusing:
Cryptsy and several pools where on a fork for about a month. Before the fork, they had x amount of BTB (call them good)
During the fork, pools and miners that were on the same fork as Cryptsy deposited y amount of BTB (call them bad).

So for a month or so, the BTB payouts were added to the forked chain.
People on the fork got bitbars in their wallet.
People not on the fork got nothing.

(people not on the fork - who send btb to cryptsy - lost their bitbars (probably). the btb went out on the good chain - but never showed up at cryptsy)

It could -technically, be straightened out. But you would have to get everybody who received bitbars to give them back. you would have to get 'money' back from the persons that deposited 'bad' bitbars.

In your case, and not knowing where your BTB were sourced from, I would contact the source, and ask them to check their wallet block count.
If it doesn't match our official block explorer http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/), they need to fix it.
Then maybe, you might have a chance of regaining your lost Bitbars.

In the end, you might end up taking it in the end.
I've got a couple hundred Bitbars that got cast away, and is now floating in the ether, never to be seen again.
(maybe...I have dreams...)

They are "good" on the forked chain only.
They never existed on the good chain. - kind of like my 325.1 BTB on Cryptsy.

peers are not required, the new wallet automatically connects to our sponsored node.

Adding some peers is always a good idea, in case of issues.
You can get an up to date  list of peers at http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo)

here is an example bitbar.conf file:
Code:
pcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpcport=9344
addnode=btb.altcointech.net
addnode=109.228.4.100
addnode=89.27.70.48
addnode=148.251.19.213

addnode=94.23.54.195
addnode=98.115.147.74
addnode=173.167.11.33

IRC is now disabled by default and isn't needed in the bitbar.conf file anymore.

our web site is http://bitbar.co/ (http://bitbar.co/) and has the links for the wallet source for Linux, and compiled windows QT

remember to remove the peers.dat file before starting the wallet back up.
remove the debug.log file too.

You might try connecting to just one ip.

bitbar.conf
Code:
rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=password
connect=167.160.36.162
remember to change the connect=167.160.36.192 back to addnode=btb.altcointech.net after you sync.

if you still can't connect, you can look through the debug.log and maybe see why...

I take that back - I DID make a little stake... 0.05 BTB
It still shows as 0.00 on the transactions tab, but if you double click on the tx and open a detail box, it shows a +0.05 tx -yay

I just read a few pages back about cryptsy receiving bad forked coins. Someone suggested that to fix the issue people would basically have to reverse a bunch of transactions or I guess nullify them. Obviously that's not realistic, and I know cryptsy is dealing with a lot of shit right now, but if they get a chance to deal with bitbar, could there be a likely solution they would use to get customers good bitbars? (Like would it be possible for them to nullify bad coins and spread the loss across users? or are all the coins on cryptsy automatically unusable?) I had over 2k BTB on cryptsy and I'm scared that they are as gone as the litecoins i had on the site  :(

Also, if they were taking in coins from multiple forks (if I understand that to be possible, correct me if i misread) and then allowing them to be traded on their network, could that be considered negligence under the law? In the sense that they were knowingly allowing (or at least not preventing) "counterfeit" crypto to be mixed with good crypto and then taking fees from "counterfeit" trades? I know there's a class action lawsuit going, but I don't think this issue would fall in it (that is if I understood this correctly  ??? )

It's not possible to get coins from multiple forks - only the fork you are on.

Once they update their wallet and get in sync with the rest of us, the 'bad' bitbars will (should) turn to orphans in their wallet, or at least become unspendable.

How they are going to disburse funds is another matter. I guess it will be first come - first serve until they run out. (like everything else)

As for knowingly trade 'bad' bitbars, I don't think they actually 'knew'.
At the time, all they were getting were service tickets stating deposits and withdrawals weren't going through, and as you stated, they had/have a lot of things going on, and I don't think they ever got around to looking into the problem until it was too late, and things blew up for them.

I feel for ya man - I've got six different alt-coins there in locked wallets, about 5 BTC worth that I probably won't get back.
At least I can login still and visit them   :'(

Added http://crypto-city.com/index.php/pages/3/ (http://crypto-city.com/index.php/pages/3/) to the web site.
Bitbar now has a page there - along with a discussion thread.

Crypto-city is like a facebook for crypto-ites  (cryptonians ??)

I just read on the HBN thread that Cryptsy is allowing HBN withdrawals so hopefully it won't be too much longer for people to get their Bitbars back.

How does this keep happening and can it be fixed?

H2C put BTB back up on the pool to be mined like an hour ago. It had been down since the 7th.

H2C is probably fine.
Ispace just keeps getting slammed with mega hash, knocking them off the chain - they make blocks too fast compared with the rest of the network.

Someone who mines there should contact iSpace and ask them to remove BTB from their multipool. Its not good for them, and not good for bitbar to have such hash spikes.

I agree - and hope someone can get through to them.

small update for the bitbar wallet
added networkhashps mostly for the pools that are set up to show network hash.
No link for windows-qt wallet as of yet.

I lost all my current work when I switched work stations. I pushed my updates to github, then I rebuilt my work environment (virtual box) and did a pull from github, and opps, I lost all my work and have to basically start over.
Even my backup was screwed, some of the new edits went missing when I zipped the directory 'for safe keeping'
I thought I had one more backup on my own personal github depo - but nooooo --

Anyway - the update is basically for the exchanges and pools. I added an api call so they can get a guesstimate of the total network hash to display.

in the console you can type getmininginfo and get back something like : "networkhashps" : 374237612
which is 374 Mh

The wallet has some color added to it and a bitbar logo, but I can't remember if the previous version had that or not.
I really confused myself, all well -

Na - thanks anyway. I enjoy programming, and the do-over may help me remember to check my backups BEFORE deleting  ;D

The next update should have the staking icon to let you know if you are staking, and give a extremely rough guess at how long to wait until you get rewarded.
     (you have a 50% chance of reward in 3 days)

There are no plans for a mandatory wallet update.
 *  mandatory updates are required when changing things like staking time, reward amounts - things that affect transactions going onto the blockchain, the stuff I'm doing is mostly cosmetic, and information about things already on the blockchain.

Maybe I will come up with an actual 'plan' - but right now I'm just sort of winging it  :)

My list of 'development' ideas are:
coin control (again  :) )
a limited block chain explorer -
user select-able color scheme (skins)
auto update for windows clients (maybe - I'm still looking into the security risks, this probably won't happen, but maybe)
an option to send a percentage of your stake rewards to a charity (like a bitbar fund donation), or 'savings' account (separate wallet ??)

That should keep me busy for a while

If you use a program called Recuva you might be able to recover your deleted files. It is freeware without support or 24.95 with support but you don't need support. I used it in a data forensics course, it was a good tool. I also used it to recover some wallet.dat files I lost. https://www.piriform.com/recuva check it out.

I'll make a note of that.
I went through a backup of my backups and actually found a good zip of the wallet with coin control, but I like the one I'm working on now.  Better version (the first one was bottlecaps, the one I'm on now if from Diamond), and better graphics - the tool bar buttons have color and rounded corners.

What's so cool about Diamond? I thought about getting some but ya, haven't motivated myself.

Network hashrate is really down now on BTB, my hashpower is accounting for pretty close to half of the total. I will hit mad blocks tonight.

I think the price drop has deterred miners because of profitability.

Diamond has been holding it's value, and I can still make a few cents mining them with gpu's (Groestl - not scrypt), but I mentioned diamond because that's what I used for the coin control in the bitbar wallet.

BTB hash rate seems about 1/2 of yesterdays. Ispace is around 60 mh, I'm at 30 mh, and Cryptopia is at 90 mh. that totals to around 180 Mh/s and my wallet is reporting total network hash at 219 Mh/s

do to the recent fork, I've been looking into checkpoint services.
the Cryptopia bitbar pool has been going strong, and their hashrate has topped over 51% several times.  Good for them, bad for the rest of us.

I've emailed dreamwatcher to re-sync his node (and blockexplorer) to the chain that Cryptopia is on - the longer chain wins anyway , right ?!

I've got some more studying to do on checkpoints, but so far it looks like a fairly simple update to the source code, and a mandatory wallet update.
I don't know if a re-download of the blockchain will be required or not, I let you know later after I test it.

I don't have a time frame yet, as it's not an urgent matter, . . . .    I'm just getting tired of these stupid forks.   :(

It looks to me like ispace is on a 0.4.0 version of the wallet. They had some kind of hardware failure which was catastrophic and had to rebuild the whole pool without backups or something like that.  I see on CCE that there is a satoshi node in the list again also. I think if CCE can make it so to not allow any node to connect to them unless they are the correct one might prevent some of this. Also obviously ispace needs to use the newest wallet. I checked cryptopia against CCE like 5 seconds ago and they look to be in sync. Also H2C is in sync with the both of them CCE and Cryptopia

I've been it contact with Dreamwatcher, - hence the re-syncing - and he has been helpful with the information I need for the checkpoint server.

I could code it so the new updated wallet will not connect to an older wallet - but I don't like the idea of leaving clients - hanging
Sure, eventually they will start looking around to see what the problem is, but we don't have much of a community network to get the word out. I was hoping to build the community up a bit before cutting old wallets off.

Anyway, so far, the plan is to issue a new updated wallet with the checkpoint server coding.

I think it happened before ispace crashed. or not.
The old wallets still work fine with the current chain, it's just when they first start up, they try to bitcoin.biz which doesn't exist anymore.
They had a hard time joining the network - plus the error measage about the checkpoints being to old among other little things.

I noticed that while ispace was down, Cryptopia miners where at times getting over 50% of the total network hash rate - and that is bad - as it creates forks.

The mandatory wallet upgrade that's coming should (hopefully) eases these problems.

As things are now, I can't send messages to any of the wallets.
That is one of the things that setting up the checkpoint server will enable me to do.

Once the new wallet is ready, all you have to do is download the new wallet.
There is a possibility that you may have to re-sync the blockchain, I don't positively know yet.

Bitbar is alive, trading and being mined - it's just most people have forgotten about it, or are more interested in 'new' and 'flashy' crypto like ETH.
It's the perfect time (and price) to mine, and to purchase.

please vote for bitbar at https://safecex.com/coin/add (https://safecex.com/coin/add) - (you have to have a balance on safecex to vote)

The problem is the creator of this one for Bitbar doesn't login to BCT much.

The last time rbdrbd logged in was Dec 24, 2015 when he updated the OP for me.
I would like to be able to do the updates and corrections a little more frequently.

This applies to both Bitbar and Litebar

It will be a day or two (or 3 or 4) before I can start doing anything with litebar.
The litebar web site is gone.
The official github source mentioned in the litebar thread is gone.

I did find ONE source repo for litecoin - it will have to do.

start saving you bitcoins.
It will take 5,000,000  DOTs to get it listed on Cryptopia

Nice thing about Cryptopia is they will probably add a mining pool for litebar - like they did for bitbar.

Keep an eye out for the mandatory Bitbar wallet update.

Besides getting the checkpoint server going, there are some additional update I think people will like.

Why do they want DOTs?

Why do they want DOTs?

The developer/owners of Cryptopia created Dotcoin (DOT) and that is what they use for purchases and services.
You can trade for them, and you can mine them.
You can mine them on Cryptopia - like most of the other coins listed there (like Bitbar) or you can solo mine them.
I mined them on my pool for a while, but decided it was easier just to buy them when I need them.

Just a heads up -
I'm switching my network service from DSL to Fiber Optic, and I will probably have to switch my static IP block address.
All this really means is access to Bitbar.co and Litebar.co will be interrupted for several hours to a day or two depending on how long it take to propagate the IP address change.

SO don't freak out if you can't connect to the website !  ;D

on a more serious note.. it seems both H2C and ispace are on a different chain then cryptopia again.... I just sent 14.6BTB to my wallet from H2C and they haven't showed yet. I checked the diff and see my wallet is the same as cryptopia.(42.xx as of right now with H2c and ispace @ 36 and 37) I just did a check and repair wallet and 34 bars just popped into my wallet....wtf?! this is becoming ridiculous. i have 6 more sitting there immature that I think I am going to lose..  but where did the 34 come from and do I get to keep them?


isn't there a way to shrink the size of the wallet file by removing the transactions of orphans?

I added zap wallet to the new wallet that's coming out. It removes all the transactions from the wallet, then rescans.

The one for Litebar has.

The one for Bitbar is about done. I had to back up a few steps and delete the rounded corners on the tooltips (popup discriptions) and get rid of the font changes because, while it worked awesome on the linux qt wallets, it looked like crap on the windows wallets.
The pop up tips didn't fit the fonts.

I've been running the new wallet to test it and so far so good.

I'm thinking about restricting the older wallets from connecting so they are forced to update. If I do that, I should probably put out a warning, but since they haven't updated anyway - they probably don't know about the update ...

I saw the new litebar wallet and running it now.  

I was trying to think of a way to alert the old wallets and thought of this: You know how you can see peers in a list with the console command and in that info shows the wallet version. so use that to msg old wallets. make it say like "If you are reading this you need to upgrade your wallet to xxxxxx.xxx sucka!" for the new wallet version info. But if it is a new wallet you are using the getpeerinfo command on, it shows the actual version less the "you need to" part, probably wouldn't be that hard to code. It's not perfect, but a msg would get to the old wallet if they looked at the peer list. What do you think?

It's a good idea. Most of the time if a wallet gets the wrong information, it bans the connecting wallet. same effect

It might me possible to send a small message back, but if they were to actually do a getpeerinfo - they should get a clue when they see all of the /BitBar:0.7.4/ in there list.
Some people just don't get it until it's broke.

Well, the Cryptopia pools hash rate is 2.48 GH/s
Current Block: 163508
Difficulty: 30.05880266

the rest of us have a hash rate of 552.57 MH/s
Current Block: 163697
Difficulty: 31.90737198

Cryptopia works with two wallets, one for the pool and one for the exchange. Their exchange wallet still matches us - so that's good.
I asked Hex to update the pool's wallet and resync.

When total network hash is 552 Mh you can't throw 2,000 Mh (2 Gh) on it

Update on the wallet.

So the daemon part is done.
new key added for checkpoint server
new key and replaced missing code for alert messages
added -zapwallettxes - removes all transactions from your wallet.dat and rescans the whole chain (this takes a while)
build  version increased to v0.4.4.xxx
client version increased to 60007

Those of you using bitbard, feel free to pull the source and start using it.

Those of you using the QT wallet, just a little longer.
I'm still working on the style sheets.
(and any problems found by our testers - thanks userpike)

I tried the "balance" option in cgminer between the new BTB wallet and 42 wallet and its working out nicely. I've never tried the balance option before. There doesn't seem to be any problems mining solo with the new BTB wallet either.



Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on April 25, 2016, 04:54:10 AM
nice.

The new wallet is about ready -
I added the zapwallet to the wallet menu, and it works nice, I can't figure out how to clear and reload the transactions table.

I might just leave it that way. All you have to do is shut down the wallet and start it back up again.

At least you don't have to use a command prompt (cmd) to zap the wallet - you just do it in the GUI, then restart the wallet.

Well Cryptopia's Bitbar exchange wallet is about 900 blocks behind what it should be.
I'll submit a ticket to let them know - you should submit one also with the tx and amount, just to be safe.

Here is the new windows-qt wallet bitbar-qt_v04_4_005.zip (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1cnD3W8c0jtWGlNUXEzdTFkMUE/view?usp=sharing)

This is a mandatory update:
Why ?
The checkpoint functions have been enabled, and we will have a checkpoint server up and running in a few days.
I've sent the private key to CCE so that our official node can also be the master node/checkpoint server.
Because lukemarshall paid for the CCE sponsorship - he has to give CCE permission for the changes, and it might take a few days for luke to get in touch.


Some of the other updates are:
Coin control - so you can join smaller blocks of bitbar's into larger blocks - like 20 BTB blocks for staking.
Staking icon - let's you know if your are staking, and gives a (very) rough guess as to how long your wait is before you stake - not when you get rewards, but when you can actually stake.
Zap wallet  -  This will remove all of the transactions out of your wallet, then re-scan through the entire chain for confirmed transactions. It WILL take a while, and your wallet will need to be restarted.

I added color to the wallet and added a link to the Bitbar logo so when you click on it, your web browser will open up to our Bitbar.co website.

I think that should do for a while, although I've been thinking about making the wallets skin-able, so you can choose different designs or colors..
Maybe adding a small chat window - opposite side from the logo ??

Thoughts?

A chat would be cool I think.

I'm liking the skins idea also.

I know its kinda nerdy but it would be cool to have a stats list like how many people are solo mining with their wallets and other useless knowledge like how many pools are connected if either of that's even possible. Not identify them, just how many and maybe their hashrate.

They are not on the correct chain. they are 1206 blocks behind our block explorer.
So it depends on how many of the Bitbars were mined before Cryptopia's wallet went wonky.

I'd like to do skins too, but it might be a bit much for the way QT works.

I though about stats on the wallet like current price.
To track solo mining -vs- pool mining I'd probably need to know people's addresses, and a lot of people not want to share info, kinda goes against the anonativity (I think I just made up a word) of the whole crypto scene.

so you should be getting the old "WARNING: Checkpoint is too old. Wait for block chain to download, or notify developers."

There's a qt wallet out there that already has the skins deal I just can't remember what it is right now. Once I figure it out I'll let you know and maybe it could be as easy as copy and pasting the needed code from its source.

I wasn't thinking by BTB address I was thinking by peers. Somehow monitor them for hashrate. We already know every peer's IP along with all the other info given when you use getpeerinfo in the console.

Will you make the BOT female and talk dirt to me? Like about different types of shovels, backhoes, front-end loaders and other related dirt moving/excavating/compacting equipment?  :D

The wallet doesn't keep track of hash rate.
To figure total network hash rate, you have to measure the time between blocks, and figure out how much hash would be needed, with the current difficulty. It's mostly an educated guess. Hit a lucky block 2 seconds after your last block, and that throws the hash figures off. You have to average larger amounts of blocks to get a stable number, but then you can't 'current' hashrate.

Now most pools have API's configured, so you could pull from that, but not so with the solo miners.

humm, just thinking out loud here,,, you could build a database like you would use for a block explorer, keep track of the 'busy' wallet addresses. figure out the time between their blocks, and come up with a 'personal' hash rate.  too much work for a wallet I think.
Could add that function to a block explorer, and pull the info in that way  [note to self]

So far so good with my skins experiment. It's not as bad as I thought it would be.
QT uses CSS - kind of like web pages.
The problem is some of the styles is in each individual page, like address book has it's own, transaction view has it's own, overview page ....  it's in the forms, then there are styles in the code (.cpp files)

I've tested the new wallet spiderbox, nice work!


I'm glad you like it. Hopefully dreamwatcher will get the checkpoint server going soon.
The alert system is cool. I have to try really hard not to start sending out random messages   ;D


oh come on, stop resisting temptation..  :P

I still think there is a wallet out there that has actual skins. Maybe I am mistaken and confused, Netcoin has "themes" which is pretty much a skin. I'll keep looking though but it might be the wallet I was talking about.
So far so good with my skins experiment. It's not as bad as I thought it would be.
QT uses CSS - kind of like web pages.

Excellent.

I would really love a black wallet, with gold highlights. Something sharp and classy ;)

Thanks for the hard work... we know you love it :)

so here is my skins project so far - it's actually pretty cool  :)

Bitbar-skins.zip (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1cnD3W8c0jtYTN6YjgwYzRWN1k) this is the Bitbar-qt wallet.
unzip and put where you want.

skins.zip (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1cnD3W8c0jtNTd0Rk5NVmdDTHM) this is the skins and images
unzip this and put the skins folder in the same place that your bitbar wallet.dat file is.

The way I designed it, anybody can make there own skin file.
just copy one of the .qss files, and edit away - remember to save it as a different name - and edit the first line (description)

the qss file is nothing more that a css file, like web sites use.  The hard part is figuring out what group -or 'thing' is called that you want to change.

This is far from done, but it is far enough along you can actually use it.

the three checkboxes on the skin page don't do anything - and may end up being scrapped.
Your settings will be kept for the next time you run the wallet.

We may have to setup a 'depository' for people to add their skin designs, that would be cool!

New BitBar wallet is cool but it wont stay in sync.It keeps falling behind everyday and when/if I get it to sync it just goes back out,is there a reason for this and why does the wallet still say the checkpoint is to old?

Thanks for any help,not trying to be negative or an ass,just reporting issues and hoping for solutions  ;D

looking at the explorer http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/ (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/) I've noticed the chain stopped for several hours (like over 12 hours at a glance).
Block 167476 was the last block for several hours.
exploring the transactions on the address in block 167476 shows:
05-09-16 23:37:27   amt 0.141484
05-09-16 23:36:42   amt 0.141484
05-09-16 23:34:33   amt 0.141484
05-09-16 23:30:14   amt 0.141484
05-09-16 23:29:50   amt 0.141484

05-09-16 23:23:43   amt 0.141484
05-09-16 23:21:22   amt 0.141484
05-09-16 23:17:51   amt 0.141484

05-09-16 23:16:29   amt 0.141484
05-09-16 23:15:36   amt 0.141484
05-09-16 23:14:10   amt 0.141484

those blocks are pretty fast. I'm thinking too much hash in one spot.  They may be off mining their own chain.

Please report any issues - the more information the better.

I haven't heard back from dreamwatcher about the checkpoint server.  I sent him the private key for setting it up back on Fri 4/29/2016, guess I'll sent it again....

- general info for all readers:

As for your wallet syncing (or not), I would shut it down, delete the peers.dat file and both .log files(easier to look through) and try again.

you can add nodes to your config file from the list at http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo (http://btb.cryptocoinexplorer.com/peerinfo) it's generally not needed, and it doesn't hurt.

addnode=65.102.140.116
addnode=82.181.121.182
.....

(don't add the :xxxxx)

note: If for some reason you were on a different chain, or your wallet just hiccuped and spewed nonsense out to the network, your wallet could end up being banned for 'misbehaving'
It's a temporary ban set for 24 hours. (most wallets are 10 minutes - I don't know why they designed bitbar this way)


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: userpike on May 10, 2016, 10:41:47 PM
I think if you use "-connect" instead of "-addnode" it might help out with the sync issue. I have to say that I often delete my peers list but probably wouldn't have to if i just used "connect". But it doesn't seem to hurt anything even when i am solo mining on the network to just leave it alone. It's annoying though right? After I delete the peers list and run the wallet again it shows as synced almost instantaneously.

Also, don't mind what the green bar says on the bottom of the wallet, look in the console and the blockcount should match the block explorer or extremely close. That's what matters I believe.
I can still solo mine while it's "syncing" this way. I think the green bar shows up when a node shows a higher blockcount. So one on a wrong chain.

I kinda feel like this is a bug in the wallet, that it'll do this. But this happens to many different coins also. But it still is in sync if you check in the console - just doesn't appear as such because of the green bar at the bottom. The same thing is happening in the LTB wallet also and in 42 wallet I notice it happens in also. I've seen in happen in the Franco wallet also.

oh ya are you using a windows wallet? lol i wrote above in the perspective of a windows version wallet because that's what I use.

I agree somewhat on the over engineering.

I don't understand why misbehaving wallets aren't banned permanently or until they meet certain criteria which would then after, allow them back on the network.

__

Could it be that the og Dev thought there would be over 120 nodes on the network at any given time?

Waiting for 520 confirms does take forever right now but what if there were over 120+ nodes on the network? Right now, 520 confirms is way over ambitious in my opinion and may even be a deterrent for use of BTB.  A person might not want to wait that long especially because of how fast as it's value can change on the exchanges. Someone might be mining it because it is profitable over, say LTC. BUt by the time that mined amount is mature it might no longer be profitable and selling could be at a loss. So there is risk involved that way and said person might feel like a "bagholder". Which is not so good. Sure we want people to hold bars because that keeps them rare but we NEED people to spend/use them also.

__

I like the diff adjust after every block. I wish more coins were like that! I feel an unfair advantage can be had otherwise for an amount of time.
 For instance, when I jumped onto the LTB network before anyone else did... before Spidersbox pushed out the first new updated wallet (I took a risk mining the wrong chain). I found literally 46 blocks the first minute, the count went higher per minute before it went down until the diff was adjusted. But only slowed down slowly also as the diff kept being adjusted. I felt like I hit the jackpot. Alerts for blocks found wouldn't stop, I had to turn the sound down. ching! ching! ching!ching!ching cha-ching! lol

PoW/PoS is good too

so the skins wallet doesn't work as it should on windows.
here is the fix for now:

make a directory c:/bitbar

unzip the skins.zip file to c:/bitbar
note: you might end up with skins/skins.  if you do, move the files and images to the first skins.
you should end up with something like:

c:/bitbar/skins-|
                   [] images
                   default.qss
                   midnight.qss
                   pnw.qss

then you will have to edit the qss files default, and pnw  - left click open with - wordpad (notepad squishes it all up with no end of line returns)

change the line that looks like:
  border-image: url(skins/images/pnw-background.jpg) 0 0 0 0 stretch stretch;

and change it to:
  border-image: url(c:/bitbar/skins/images/pnw-background.jpg) 0 0 0 0 stretch stretch;


while you are at it, paste this to the file:
QMenuBar::item
{
  background-color: transparent;
}

Once done and saved, use the browse button in the skins page of your browser and select c:/bitbar/skins
then hit the find button to reload the list and double click on the pnw skin - it SHOULD change the background to clouds.

note: feel free to copy one of the qss files and edit it.  you don't need to restart the wallet for the changes to take place.
You can just check one of the check boxes (or uncheck it) and the wallet will reload.

yes. It works well.
I was just going with the normal windows programs - keep it simple (as possible)
Besides, once you use wordpad, it puts in the missing 'windows' end of line  (carriage return or line feed, don't remember) and then you can use what ever editor you want.

I'm serious. Something is wrong. I was at my mother's house today visting my uncle and went to show him Bitbar.co it went to the address BUT it wanted me to activate an active x and then tried to dl a dvr client player onto his computer. i checked the site with my mother's computer/ but same network and same thing. When I got home I checked both the ltb site and btb and they are both still all weird. THe background that shows up is blue with a white box and an icon in the middle. Under the icon it says "The server closed the connection without sending any data" Also, on the tab for the web page it says "Web Client for DVR" In the address bar it still says "bitbar.co" This explanation is the same for litebar.co. I have tried other sites and all other sites that I have tried go to where they are supposed to go so I don't think it is on my end or my mother's end or my uncles all at the same time. Just tried it on my gf's computer and same results.

I do believe you, I do. I just can't duplicate the problem. I even installed chrome on my tablet to see what would happen.

Earlier today, I connected one of my security systems to my network. It's on a different IP address then my servers (of course) and should only be connecting via that one address. - It requires a dvr client plugin to show properly - that is why I believe you.
(strange that the favicon was correct)

I remoted in to my computer at work - and there it was, big blue screen

I double checked the network settings, everything look fine.
I unplugged my cameras.

It might take a while for the IP caches to time out, before you can get there.
Thanks for the heads-up.

It would have been kinda boring. 7 cameras around my house. Card drive by, some times somebody walking by. parked cars...
Neighbor did stab a person on the parking strip once, but that was a while ago.

Depending on how badly mangled the DNS records got, it could take 24-48 hours to get straightened out again.
Still would like to know what went wrong...

I would have been entertained. haha For a few minutes anyway.

I've always wanted to gain access to the street cams around where I live. might be illegal though..

I was wondering how what happened could have happened also but with not knowing the inner workings of your network, I could only speculate. Hope you figure it out.

The sites are still down at the moment.

Neighbor did stab a person on the parking strip once, but that was a while ago.

Depending on how badly mangled the DNS records got, it could take 24-48 hours to get straightened out again.
Still would like to know what went wrong...


I would have been entertained. haha For a few minutes anyway.

I've always wanted to gain access to the street cams around where I live. might be illegal though..

I was wondering how what happened could have happened also but with not knowing the inner workings of your network, I could only speculate. Hope you figure it out.

The sites are still down at the moment.



Turns out my modems firewall was blocking access. I rebooted my modem and now it works.
Still don't know why a device with one static IP could connect on several other IP's.

maybe there were already some exceptions for the IP address the cams were on in the firewall, like that IP was used in the past for connecting some other device to the internet or your local network? I notice sometime I get funny happenings on my network because I have a 4 port switch (I use for my mining hardware and wallet server) which is completely autonomous setup wired to the router and uses 192.168.1.x for its IPs but so does my main router out of my laziness. Sometimes some of the wireless devices as they connect to the main router will get one of those IPs already assigned to stuff connected to the 4 port switch or vice versa. This happens If conditions are "right", which i haven't figured out how to reproduce..I'm thinking I have to be rebooting the switch while something else connects wirelessly, IDK..

I haven't setup the router for MAC address filtering yet though. Which would probably take care of the problem but could prove to be a PITA if I forget I did that. Have you tried that yet?

no I haven't messed with mac address filtering. I have a block of 16 IP addresses, so it's pretty much 'plug and play'. set the device to a static IP, make sure the net mask is correct and boom. your done.
I'm blaming the dvr system.
I had a NAS do that once at work. Was fine for two years, then one day it showed up on 3 other IPs - you go to a sever, and instead of the server login, you get the NAS login. strange.
I suppose some record files in the router/modem could have go corrupt ie., port forwarding, or something.
All well, it's working now.

I tweeted it to them and also found the contact email and sent one there. Can't hurt to remind them.

I don't get it about whoever is mining on that chain either. Not all of them are mining at ispace, so where are they? solo miners? where are other pools?

H2C is on the new wallet. Thats where most of the hashing is at right now for the correct chain. But there is more on that other chain, their diff is at 37 now.

It's probably someone who rented a big rig. boy are they going to be pissed when they try to transfer to an exchange.

I have to admit that I don't keep up with the crypto I collect.  I can go several months without checking the threads to see if there is a new wallet, forks, new exchange ...

I wonder if they're actually lost from the network or if someone sold all those stolen bars on another exchange.

They used to be worth way more than they are now. Maybe the thieves dumped them off and that's what dropped the value.

What do you think?

HBN took a real nose dive after Cryptsy.   

42 coin dropped tremendously in value since cryptsy also.

I feel like one of the biggest wallets, if not the biggest is the cryptsy Bitbar wallet.

Remember their wallet went offline around block 135,000ish if I recall correctly.


The bars are still there I feel, there wasnt another exchange to dump on, as BTER volume was shit, and plus their hacking issue.

Last I heard, there is  a lawyer in Florida that is filing to represent cryptsys frozen assets, but I do not know if vern has giving over private keys to all the wallets... or in our case, Bitbars keys.

remember there wallet had been on a fork for well over a month. I lost 125 btb when I did a withdrawal.
The wallet would have to be brought back to the correct chain - which would make my withdrawal disappear from their wallet, then they/someone would have to go trough their records to see where the 'extra' btb's go.

I't 'could' happen, but i'll not be holding by breath.

They should just give me the exchange   ;D

Don't forget Cryptopia. When BTB was listed there is when the price started falling.

I hope you guys get your bars back though.


I just thought it a weird coincidence that some coins that were pretty heavily traded on Cryptsy went to poopoo after BigVern closed shop.

I wish I knew where Cryptsy is/was located in FL. If it was close I'd go check it out.

I did some more updates on the skins wallet.
skins folder (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1cnD3W8c0jtNnV5b2xWbjF5X1E)
This is a link to the folder, this way I can replace the files without having to keep adding links to this thread. (the older ones are now broken)

I figured out what was wrong with the windows versions - my pc was causing the problems - so I wiped the drive and set windows up again ...

Anyway the skins folder belongs in the same place you put the wallet. ie., desktop, program files , c:/bitbar ... whatever
the bitbar-skins-qt.exe wallet will look for the skins folder in the same place it (the wallet) is ran from.  this should make things easier.

you may need to 'browse' for the skins folder (using the wallet) to point the wallet back to the proper skins folder (the one that is in the same location as the bitbar-skins-qt.exe file)
the wallet remembers the location you pick, along with the skin you pick.


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on May 29, 2016, 01:45:28 AM
in linux, the skins directory goes in the .bitbar directory.

I went back to the explorer and looked at the last 100 blocks, they were 20 seconds to a minute apart.
Bitbar doesn't like that.

I believe one of the things the original developer(s) did was to make difficulty change in smaller amounts.
Don't know why - think I read it somewhere ..

That was before ASIC miners.

The current BitBar blockchain has been synced, and is available for download on CryptoChainer.com (http://CryptoChainer.com).  This chain is almost impossible to sync from scratch, due to it's age and potential forks that have occurred.  You can download it, and be in sync almost instantly with this chain.

 I notice their info page is always behind and not just on Bitbar. I've been switching back and forth from H2C and ispace. I'm liking ispace because they have Frankos and H2C keeps taking them off because of supposed forks. Also merge mine Beezercoin. I was getting syscoin also on the merge but it's not happening anymore. If you click on "My Mining" it should show the coins you are mining and have a balance. If you click on "Bitbar"  it will show you the last block found and the current block, along with other info.

It was on there a long time ago before you took it over then I asked them to put it back up. Now I guess it's gone forever. I asked for LTB to be put on there and it's still there for the time being. I don't think they ever had it before. THe pool master said he always had issues with BTB so I guess he had enough finally. The memo says "These coins will be removed from pool because of their instability/low profitability to free up some server resources:

BOB, BTB, CAP, FRK, GLD, NET

Status: 262 confirmations

The tx id checks out at CCE but I'm not sure if I understand what it is showing me. The amount was split in half it looks like. 110.0202 x 2 doesn't equal 219.140415 though so maybe the difference is what was earned for the stake?

Congratulations Userpike, you did indeed successfully staked a block on the Bitbar BlockChain worth

0.90001BTB

Bitbar has an annual inflation rate of 6% to mimic a real world inflation rate.

After One month Held Blocks are eligible for staking , but aren't fully matured unless held for three months.

A block that goes stake without being fully matured "splits" into to blocks retaining the total amount of bars staked.

Once staked bars must wait 520 blocks to be returned to owners wallet.

If you Hold Bars until maturity, they will stake a single block with original total plus any staked bars.

It might be a difference with the version of boost you are using, give me a couple of minutes to update the code, and we'll try again.

ok I updated the net.cpp and pushed to github.
from the src directory, you should be able to:
Code:
git pull
then
Code:
rm obj/*

and try again.

Let me know if there are more errors (like net.cpp:60:1: error: )
It will take me a while to make another virtual box to try the newer boost

You probably won't like this suggestion but -

After looking at the differences in just the operations.hpp file between the older boost (1.48 and 1.54 that I use) and the newer version (1.57 you are using) I think the best bet is to install one of the earlier versions of boost -
Code:
sudo apt-get install libtool libboost-all-dev
should do it for you (depending on your distro)

Alot of the crypto-currencies that have been around for several years (like BitBar and LiteBar) are based on the older libraries.
Boost may not be your only problem.
The Berkeley DB is based on version 4.8 which is hard to find, and is only important if you need access to older databases (blockchain,wallet etc.)
You can use the newer versions for the database on new installs.

I'll add the boost update to my list of things to do [note to self]
but it will be a while - I don't like messing with stuff that works  ;)

Both BitBar and LiteBar are doing well. Had a few issues back when Cryptsy crashed and burned.
Bitbar has been (mostly) in the top 20 BTC volume on Cryptopia for a while, with Litebar (mostly again) in the top 30.

Hello,

I wanted to inform the community that I have received word from the owner of CryptoCoinExplorer that service for the blockchain explorers will end after Jan. 1 2017

Spiderbox, aren't they coded as the connection node? This may need to be addressed.

I'de like to thank DreamWatcher for his support of Bitbar through the explorer since 2013.

It is indeed coded as the connection node.
Code:
static const char *strDNSSeed[][2] = {
    {"btb.altcointech.net", "btb.altcointech.net"},
};
He is also running the checkpoint server.

I take it that it is not a money issue, but more like he is not providing the service anymore ?
I can run it on my server - I wonder if he would be willing to share his code for the explorer ... :)

Correct, he is ending all block explorer services unrelated to money.

I am fairly certain his explorer code was made open sourced upto and including his forth and latest version.

It would be nice to have everything transfer over to you're server to avoid checkpoint/server issues...

I will have to track down the server code if I can.
Consider the checkpoint server 'handled'

I will update the wallet code for the dns-seed to point to bitbar.co by the first of the year.
Should anyone have problems with connections, please add to your bitbar.conf:
addnode=65.102.140.115

or:
addnode=bitbar.co

I just checked and the wallet running there has 17 connections

Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays to all of you!


Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread
Post by: Spidersbox on January 01, 2017, 07:17:28 PM
so I changed the dnsseed to btb.altcoinwarz.com and updated the repo at https://github.com/Crypto-Currency/bitbar

Windows-qt wallet link is updated on the Bitbar home page at ,or you can use this link. (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1cnD3W8c0jtejQ3WmhjdDZQaFk)

Not really an important update, you can skip it if you wish. While using the older wallet,if it can't connect to any peers, close your bitbar wallet and add:
Code:
addnode=btb.altcoinwarz.com
to your bitbar.conf file, delete your peers.dat file, and restart your wallet.

I just checked peer connections, and altcoinwarz.com has 16 connections.

I will start the new checkpoint server once I know CCE has stopped theirs.

As for the block explorer ... that will take some time as it is written in python and I don't have any experience (yet) with python.
I'm setting up another server box to experiment with it.

If anyone can walk me through setting up the open source CCE version to use withr bitbar and litebar, it would really be appreciated, and speed up the process   :)

Windows-qt wallet link is updated on the Bitbar home page at ,or you can use this

so the latest download i can get is v0.4.4.006

but the only peers i've managed to have connect show using getpeerinfo
a "subver":"/Bitbar:0.7.4/"

and none of those peers is feeding me any blocks. :( face
was there a hardfork? is a newer than 4.4 version downloadable?

4.4.006 is the newest wallet version. (no hardfork)
0.7.4 is the client version - very confusing. I'll change that in the next update (if I remember)

Now then ...
Our long time blockchain explorer provider (CCE) has decided to stop providing that service.  They were also running our checkpoint server, and providing our dnsseed connection.
The source code (and windows-qt wallet) has been updated to reflect these changes.
I am now running the dnsseed and checkpoint server at btb.Altcoinwarz.com
Hopefully I can get an explorer working there as well.

let me know if you still have trouble syncing your wallet.

so i put dnsseed=btb.altcoinwarz.com into my conf file.

not sure it made any difference since i was already managing to get some peers.

still no block movement with a few peers.
then it occured to me the bootstrap blocks i downloaded from cryptochainer may be weirding things out.
i deleted the blocks and index, restarted.
and now things are moving.

cryptochainer worked well for me bootstrapping several other altcoins. *shrug*

After trying (with my total lack of python knowledge) to just set up the dependencies, I declined his help and decided to write my own with stuff I'm familiar with.

As has been announced, I will be shutting down CCE for now. I will not be renewing any sponsorship's and explorers are being shut down as they expire.

There are a few reasons for the decision to shutdown related to the changing market of cryptocurrencies.
I am also attending college again and working on a electronics specialization. I will be attending full time the next couple of semesters which will severely limit my time for other projects.
CCE might come back at a later date and I continue to hold the domains, rights etc to the CCE brand.

Because BTB has been on CCE for so long, I have been reluctant to shutdown the BTB explorer due to a lack of full fledged replacement explorer for BTB.

Searching around a bit I found:


https://prohashing.com/explorer/Bitbar/


The CCE Bitbar explorer will be shutdown by the weekend and I wish all of you the best of luck in the coming years.



Title: Re: [BTB] The BitBar Information Thread

https://prohashing.com/explorer/Bitbar/ is is good choice.

my efforts at making an explorer is slow going. Deciding on which database to use, what information to keep in the database and what to query live...
Work has best busy - last four weeks they have been sending me out of town, so most of my computer time is just on the weekends.
Still progressing though.

Ya, I haven't updated the btb-skins wallet yet.
Been thinking I should make a windows installer package for the skins wallet to make it easier to use.

spidersbox, any plan to upgrade litebar?
Not really.
I thought about adding PoS, but Litebar seems to be happy doing what it's doing.
Both Bitbar and Litebar are trading well on Cryptopia as older crypto's go.

I'm more interested in finding ways to make it useful as a currency.
I've been looking into online drop-shipping.

I've got one site I'm playing with right now at http://www.waltsgiftshop.com
(it's a live working site, so don't place an order unless you are prepared to get charged)

I'm still in the planning stage of creating a shopping cart that will take Bitbar and Litebar as payment.
The drop shippers only ship in the USA, so I'm not real thrilled about that - but it's a start.

Progress is slow.
The last few months I've spent most of my free time playing Team Death Match.
(Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered)
Got hooked on it last Christmas, and bought my own PS4.( and one for when I'm out of town)
I suck.
Only been playing video games for two months, and I suck.
The last time I played video games was a car driving game on my Saturn, so what, about 18 years ago ??
I Can't move and aim at the same time, by the time I aim, I'm dead.

Been working on block explorers for Bitbar and Litebar.
Blew the power supply last night (more time for COD)

As far as Litebar (and Bitbar) is concerned, It's working - so I don't mess with it.
Network is good, trading is ok.
The community is quiet, but around, and nobody has asked for any updates.
Could use some steady miners, but all in all - no worries mate.

So I've gotten a little side tracked playing Call of Duty, and have put my project of creating a block explorer aside for a while.
I do have a explorer up and running at http://btb.altcoinwarz.com:3001

It's an Iquidus explorer and it seems to work well.
Besides a fully functional block explorer, it also has top 100, network, movement and market info.

What kind of ideas?
Not planning on messing with the blockchain, so merge mining is out.

spidersbox, any plan to upgrade litebar?
Not really.
I thought about adding PoS, but Litebar seems to be happy doing what it's doing.
Both Bitbar and Litebar are trading well on Cryptopia as older crypto's go.

I'm more interested in finding ways to make it useful as a currency.
I've been looking into online drop-shipping.

Keep up the good work. I'm holding on to these coins until each is worth at least 1 bitcoin. Anything less than that, don't care. I'd rather loose it all than sell it cheap

For a while Bitbar was trading for more than Bitcoin.
I don't see why it wouldn't again.   8)
