I want to manually backup my byteball wallet but having trouble locating where it's stored.

What's default install dir?
Why don't you use the inbuilt full backup feature? You can reach it via the hamburger menu > settings > full backup. This will create an encrypted and optionally compressed backup file. Don't forget to full backup after every ful moon distribution round, because the Blackbytes are only stored locally.

The inbuilt backup feature doesnt work for some users, including myself. This is documented.

Oh?

I think you're talking about issues from many versions back.   I am able to backup/restore from/to any platform.
Only exception is that you can't backup a full node to be restored to an android/ios for obvious reasons (8GB DB).

Please vote for Byteball to be added to coinpayments.net. We need another 773 votes to go.

https://www.coinpayments.net/vote

What is this exactly?  Reads like we are donating funds to something.

Does it offer an exchange?  A way to pay bills with GBYTE if we 'win' the vote?

Quite honestly, I'm not sure myself.  I did buy well over 100 votes to get us to 3rd place.

I don't think the goal is 1000 votes, because you can go over 1000 as the top two have.  It's not a bad thing to advertise byteball though.

Are there any other such media outlets someone could suggest?

should i worry? that's after upgrading to latest v1.10.1 linux wallet...

Did you read the upgrade instructions?

"Linux users who upgrade from 1.10.0 will have to delete all files (but not subdirectories!) in ~/.config/byteball/Default in order to get rid of the annoying (but harmless) popup about profile format. This is because we had to revert to an older version of nwjs to address #201. Backup before deleting."

I had around 5BTC staked on my old byteball account. Yesterday I upgraded to Android O and lost all my apps (Which I assumed was fine, because from previous experience my byteball addresses were the same ones when I reinstalled the app)

But now, I have reinstalled the app and finished syncing, but my addresses didn't come up. I had around three rounds of blackbytes stored in that wallet, so is there any way to get them back?

Looks like you did a complete wipe and install of the OS.  Meaning, all the data is gone.
Same goes for byteball data.

Hopefully you have a full backup or at least a backup of the seed.

With a full backup, you can restore everything.
With a seed backup, you can restore the GB (not GBB).

If i have byteball , do i need to make something to take practice in the distribution ?

No, you will automatically get the byteballs distributed in the next air drop. However, if you want the free blackbytes, you need to ensure that the byteballs are on a linked byteball address. Should be simple enough, though.

There is any instructions how to check if my byteballs on a linked byteball address?
Because i want to get the free blackbytes.
Thanks

Yes,

Go to:   http://transition.byteball.org/

On the search on the top right, fill in your byteball address or your bitcoin address.

i have a lot of black bytes as well. How can I get rid of them? Or use them?

Send them to me.  I'll happily rid them from your wallet for you.

Just PM me and I will send you an invite code to pair with me and make it easy for you to send to me.

I have installed a full wallet,how long dose the synchronization of wallet take, I test the synchronization of full wallet at my computer that pass to 1 hours, the staruse is 0% of new units ,my device is Microsoft suface pro 4.

Full node takes days to sync.  HDD vs SDD is a major time difference.

Few reasons to choose full over light.  Suggested and default is to use a light wallet.
If you don't have a specific reason to have a full node, I would suggest deleting the data folder and setup as a light wallet.
If you have funds in the unsynced wallet, then I can help you through that in a PM.

Do I need to back-up the byteball folder on windows (copy AppData folder) before updating to new version?
I use only the lite version.

You should always backup the folder, but it is not needed.   Changing the version doesn't affect the wallet data.

backup backup backup.   Hard to mess things up if you have backups.

If i understand correctly on next airdrop i will receive a 10% bonus of Byteballs that i already own.... is this only valid for byteballs in locals wallet or also for byteball stored on exchanges like bittrex for example?

Thanks

If YOU own your byteball, then you get the 10%.
If the exchange owns the byteball, then they get the 10%.  Some exchanges may give you that 10% or partial or none.

Just because the byteball you believe you own are in the exchange doesn't mean they belong to you.  Withdraw it to your own wallet that YOU control and that then means you own it and you get the bonus.

Thank you for your answers!

The process was very easy. Just installed new wallet to my new computer and copied %LOCALAPPDATA%\byteball -folder from my old computer to the new one. I worked like a charm!

In my previous question I meant that if I'm running full node and try to restore it with passphrase only, I'll lose my blackbytes? So at the moment best way to do backup is do full backup of %LOCALAPPDATA%\byteball -folder?

Yes, recovery from seed will not restore blackbytes.

Two ways to backup.
1) Copy entire folder to another directory/computer/backup thumb drive.
2) Full backup (compresses everything into a single file)

I just saw that I had to click on advanced to bring up the additional options. I think this is not really an advanced feature, it should be reachable easier imo. I think people like to keep track of all the addresses they have to receive payments in a nice and ordered way. Even if you should generate a new address each time for better privacy, it's good to keep track of them, and newbies may be confused than this is an advanced feature IMO.

Why would any regular person want to see old receive addresses?   Bitcoin doesn't do this by default either.

Click on Receive and you see an address.  You can click on Generate New Address at will.
I think that blasting a screen with a lot of receive and change addresses would simply confuse most people.  I think for this reason, no wallet (that I know of) floods the screen with such addresses for any crypto by default.

Can anyone confirm how Windows backups and restore works? Just copy the %LOCALAPPDATA%\byteball -folder to the new computer at the same location, install Byteball wallet, and I should see my balances?

Btw, new website is very cool!

Isn't anybody tried to recover wallet? I have Light wallet, and need to move my wallet to new computer.

If you still have accesso to old wallet it is easier for you to install a new wallet on the new computer and to transfer the asset. Otherways you can use the full backup, if you have made it.

Ok, thank you. I have of course full backup in a safe place. I try to install new wallet and recover it with my backup. Let's see if that's really that easy. I had Light wallet and going to install that again.

Is is that the case that, if I want to backup/recover assets with passphrase(except untraceable ones ie. blackbytes), I need to use full wallet at all times?

You don't need to uninstall/install the application.  You can rename the folder which the actual wallet is in.   This is one way of having multiple wallets, etc.  Always a good idea to backup the directory AND the wallet itself

Simply doing a Full Backup on one computer and then a Full Restore on another computer is all you need.  This even works across platforms.
This works for light and full node backups.  Only exception is that you can't do a full restore of a full node on an android.

You can do a full backup and restore.  It will also recover the blackbytes from the time of the backup.  If more blackbytes were received (or spent) on a computer, then you need to rebackup else it causes problems (and possible loss/overstatement) when restoring on the new computer.  Regular bytes is no problem.

You mentioned 'full wallet', but I think you meant 'full node'.   No, restoring doesn't require a full node; however, a restore from SEED requires a full node.

When I try to send Blackbytes from my Android wallet it says Syncing forever without sending any.

Is it a known issue?

I have seen this when trying to send all blackbytes.   Meaning, it is made up of a lot of 'messages'.   Try sending a smaller amount.

The website says: For every 16 BTC you receive 0.1 GB (1 gigabyte = 1 billion bytes) does it mean if you have less than 16 BTC you will get a proportional amount or you have to own at least 16 BTC?

Yes.

The example was to show the ratio.
It was 16:1
Now it is 160:1

So, if you have 320 BTC, you would get 2 GB


So this ratio also changed? For every 1 GB you receive additional 0.1 GB.? Thanks a lot for helping out.

Yes, it dropped from a 20% bonus to a 10% bonus.

I have invested good percentage of the funds on buying Byteballs at these price. I know markets are very fragile in present scenario but since I had no intention to liquidate Bitcoins was better usage to buy from those who are shorting altcoins. It may take some time but will be profitable deal at later.

Buy the Dip.

Just received my blackbytes from the last airdrop about an hour ago. Wow, that took a while.

They were distributed nearly a week ago.  It must have simply been your wallet had not caught up with syncing.   Matrix voodoo magic dust stuff.   Smiley

I want to make a suggestion for the developers. Please, make a section in the wallet that lists all the receiving addresses generated.

Right now when I click on the generate address button, it creates the QR code, the new address, but the previous QR code and address disappear (even if I still own it)

I want to keep track, something like this on Bitcoin Core:


There is a section.  You just didn't find it.

On the wallet, click on the cog wheel (gear),  then advanced, then Wallet information  scroll down.

459  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: BYTEBALL: Totally new consensus algorithm + private untraceable payments on: August 14, 2017, 02:29:50 PM
In the last ditribution I got byteballs but no blackbytes. Why?

Most probably your byteball address was not linked that's why you didn't received any blackbytes.

Maybe but I didn't get any either and I linked my address.


Black-byte packages can be re-sent.  Not another payment, but the same package.
So, if you PM me your byteball address, I can check if you were supposed to get any since the issue is mostly due to people linking empty BTC addresses or not actually linking in the first place.

PM me your byteball address.  If you do in fact get any, I can request the package be re-sent.

A step you can do on your own, is:
Go to:  http://transition.byteball.org/
Paste in your byteball address.   If it's not linked, then you don't get any.

If it is linked, but the BTC address shows 0, then you don't get any.   
If it shows 0, and you believe otherwise, it means your BTC address was empty at the time of the snapshot and this is likely caused by you paying a tx in which your balance of coins moved to another BTC address.
