Thank you...I will check to see what nodes are default by the wallet because there is no conf. file. . And that is wallet 1.7.1.2  Smiley

You can add a sterlingcoin.conf file to the data directory. You can add connects and addnodes to that file.

These nodes are permanent infrastructure nodes:

45.32.178.232 (London)
108.61.191.233 (New York)
108.61.216.195 (Los Angeles)

These core infrastructure nodes are in global high availability data centers.

A sterlingcoin.conf file could look as such:

Code:
rpcuser=hiddenuser
rpcpassword=hardpassword
server=1
daemon=1
listen=1
addnode=45.32.178.232
addnode=108.61.191.233
addnode=108.61.216.195

I hope this information is found helpful!

I noticed just yesterday Sterlingcoin was a part of this group:

https://communitycoins.org/

Is that group still actively maintaining the website?

Yes, Sterlingcoin is a member project of Community Coins. Yes, that group is still maintaining the website.

Wallet won't sync need more nodes plz.  Smiley

You should have no issue with the DNS seednodes that are hardcoded, but here you go:

        "addr" : "45.32.178.232",
        "addr" : "108.61.216.195",
        "addr" : "54.37.46.84",
        "addr" : "71.213.38.4",
        "addr" : "82.70.129.110",
        "addr" : "208.38.200.241",
        "addr" : "90.196.80.78",
        "addr" : "185.220.100.247",
        "addr" : "191.177.203.233",

If peers are dropping you, you may want to verify your copy of the blockchain against an explorer. If you find you've forked, a recent snapshot is available via the sterlingcoin.org website (Download > Recent Snapshot).

Sorry it is giving you difficulties.

Happy Mother's Day any moms out there!
How do I know if I forked without an explorer now? My wallet syncs to 49,466 blocks to go and seems to be stuck there.
And a lot of mined coins the wallet says generated but not accepted.  Smiley thx

Sorry for the current absence of an explorer. One is planned to re-launch in the near future. Funding constraints.

An easy way to know if you are on the supported blockchain is to enter the faucet. If you receive the faucet payout (sent every 24 hrs), you'll know you are "on-chain." Peer count is another indicator, but not necessarily indicative alone. As the current network stands, if you have a small handful of peers or more (>= 3, I'd say), you most likely are on the supported chain.

If the wallet appears stuck for long, give it a restart or two.

Blocks will say, "generated but not accepted," until your copy of the blockchain reaches that point in the history of the public ledger when it occurred. A recent snapshot was posted to the website for download, if that is helpful to anyone.

Again, sorry for the 'explorer absence.' It will not remain that way for long.

Happy Spring 2023, Sterlingcoiners!
Thx  Smiley
Sorry for the very late response but this is my wallet synced by date but not blocks. Note the date.
I tried the faucet too.  Smiley
Its like there are 2 chains its trying to sync. It flipped back and forth displaying 6,000 and then 104,989 blocks to go.




Hi mate, sorry for the slow reply, also. Wink

Thanks for reporting this. But I've not seen any of the infrastructure nodes on another chain, and certainly not one 100k blocks ahead. I suppose there could be an unmaintained node out there somewhere that has spun up that many blocks in its own fork over a long time. That node would be banned of course, but bans expire. It would try, and fail, to peer again with other nodes. This may have been what you observed.

The network has had issues of slow blocks as of late. A few large bag holders have been moving and reorganizing coins out of wallets that are many years old. This has led to inconsistent nethash, resulting in inconsistent block times. This could have contributed to the glitch you observed also. At any rate, you do want to be sure your node conforms with https://chainz.cryptoid.info/slg/. Thank you for taking the time to maintain your node!

On a different note, and happy to announce, SLG has a new exchange: https://mubadil.com/en/?market=slg_usdt

Greetings Sterlingcoiners,

The long delay with SLG 2.0, and completion not feasible in the foreseeable near-future, has caused us to reconsider the current market situation, currently having only one and with little exposure and liquidity. After some deliberation with telegram users and discord users, we've started to seek other listings. Altilly, freiexchange, and unnamed have been contacted thus far, suggestions are welcome. Altilly has already put us in this round of voting, https://www.altilly.com/page/listingvote, so please do vote, vote often, and encourage others to vote. I got us started with 115 votes and I do think we can win the vote with a little effort and support from the community.

Thanks in advance for any votes and thanks for the continued support, Sterlingcoiners!



Voting was subverted. We are listed!



Happy trading, Sterlingcoiners!

Hi Sterlingcoiners,

Work has been continuing as diligently as possible, yet we are still not ready for release. The repo has been changed back to WIP as we have uncovered an issue with the OpenSSL v1.1 upgrade implementation. Users that had built from source and upgraded to v1.7 (v1.7.0.0, v1.7.0.1, v1.7.0.2, and v1.7.0.3) should be advised to downgrade back to v1.6, because you might not be able to sign transactions properly and they will continually fail to create because of some misinterpretation of inputs, we believe at this time.

Sorry to be the bearer of this bad setback news, but rest assured, we are persisting as best and as fast as possible to get it corrected. Because we have now bled into planting season, this is going to push us out another week or 2, but still in Q2.

Again, sincere apologies. Please know, SLG v1.7 is still very much en route. Thanks in advance for understanding.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][SLG] Sterlingcoin v1.6.2 | United Kindom | on: April 26, 2020, 04:57:56 PM
Happy Sunday Sterlingcoiners,

We're happy to inform, good progress has been made on the source code in preparation for Sterlingcoin v1.7! Progress such as OpenSSL 1.1, miniupnpc 1.9, and boost 1.66 & 1.7 compatibility, to name a few. This work is being done in a public repo, https://github.com/Sterlingcoin/Sterlingcoin-1.7-WIP/ and a big thanks to gjhiggins for helping get it this far.

Most of the "maintenance" work and dependency-compatibility-updating to the code is done. Focus is now shifting to the front-end GUI, to give SLG v1.7 a fresh look. Please allow a week or 2 for that, then we will build and release for Windows and Mac.

To be clear, this is not the previously discussed new code base (aka "SLG 2.0") that we were planning to swap into. While those plans are not scraped, slow progress towards those goals deemed a new release of the existing code necessary. Version 1.7 will not be a required upgrade, though strongly advised, and will not need swapping into. Version 1.7 will, and does as of now, solve several incompatibilities preventing building on many "modern and mainstream" operating systems, such as Ubuntu, "out-of-the-box" and without downgrading dependencies. This is a good step forward for Sterlingcoin and v1.7 will better bridge the gap to v2.0, whenever we do cross that bridge.

Thanks for the continued support, Sterlingcoiners. Have a good and safe week!

Greetings Sterlingcoiners,

First and foremost; I hope everyone is as well as can be expected during these odd, even tragic, times of Covid-19. I hope everyone is able to obtain the supplies they need during all the various lockdowns of our various community members. My deepest condolences to those whom might have already had someone taken by this pandemic, as have I.

Secondly; sorry for the absence of posts here. There has been some small banter on telegram and discord. Please join there for more community chatter and welcome company.

Thirdly; sorry to report, "no news" has not equated to "good news" in regards to the new SLG 2.0 codebase. The previously mentioned and hoped for "winter focus" was replaced by the need for "day job" almost 2 months ago. Family illnesses have been a great financial strain lately. The position was too good to pass, all things considered... It is in a building myself, so no covid-19 exposure, and I'm allowed to work despite the lockdown in my state. It is a sales and support role form essential construction's supply needs. What's beautiful about the agreement is I'm allow to work on whatever I wish, less the rare customer interaction of phone or email. So, basically, I am being paid to have use of the owner's office and building. He is very much in support of "my coin stuff" and the position being an incubator with fast Internet and a technology budget.

Fourthly; because of the lack of progress with SLG 2.0, I suggest we have a new release of the current codebase, presumably version 1.7. Requirement being openSSL v1.1 compatibility, so as to build on current-release Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, et al. Perhaps some other enchantments. I think this can help maintain our foothold in crypto and buy the needed time for SLG 2.0, whilst supporting easier adoption in the present. ETA SLG 1.7 Q2 2020

That is all Sterlingcoiners. For now.

Stay strong. Stay healthy. Stay Safe. Stay staking your Sterlingcoin and thanks to those who do!

Committed a small revision to the current source code, https://github.com/Sterlingcoin/Sterlingcoin-1.6.2.0-Release

Maintenance only, a more-recent checkpoint and updating copyright years. No plans to build and release Windows and Mac binaries at this time, there'd be little benefit and attention should remain on development of the new code.

This is to update the current code for the new year and to not have the repo appear stale. Well, too stale. Apologies for that. What little development time that could be afforded this past year was focused on development of the new code. Unfortunately, and as you know, that was not completely-fruitful. Fortunately; it can and is being brought into greater focus now.

Just getting ready to roll into the new year 2020 ready! Have a safe and happy New Years, Sterlingcoiners!

Sterlingcoin (SLG)


Greetings Sterlingcoiners,

Apologies for the lack of posts and communication. As you may have gathered, there's not been much to report. Please do not misinterpret this as abandonment. As previously mentioned this past spring and summer had been extremely demanding of my time largely due to my ill mother, care-giving, and the seemingly-perpetual travel associated. Also, it should go without saying, that the altcoin bear markets have required me to find other ways to make ends meet. I'm sure most, if not all, readers of this can relate to the later. Some perhaps the prior.

Fortunately I have escaped the bear markets without seeking full-time employment from others and outside of crypto, only smaller contracts and side jobs. This means I'll remain in control of my schedule as we in the northern hemisphere get ready to hunker down for winter. I do see the winter months becoming go time for Sterlingcoin "2.0".

The first testing of the PIVX fork earlier this year did not go as well as hoped, but much was learned and that progress is not lost, so long as we continue the PIVX direction. I do feel only a small part of that successful-PIVX-fork-puzzle was missed and will be found with enough focus. The winter months will certainly provide enough time for that focus.

Anyway, I felt it important to let our many long-time supports know we have not lost sight of SLG "2.0" and provide some communication. Please feel invited to our Discord for less-scarce communication and many thanks to those who continue to stake their Sterlingcoin and continue to support Sterlingcoin.

Have a great week Sterlingcoiners and to the future, cheers!

Thanks!

Besides store of value and privacy will it have another function or service? Digital IDs?

You're welcome!

Digital IDs are an interesting idea, though not yet scoped nor planned. Does the community feel it should be a requirement?

Thanks in advance for any opinions! We do want to be sure that Sterlingcoin moves by community discretion and in that direction.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][SLG] Sterlingcoin v1.6.1.1 | United Kindom | on: August 04, 2019, 06:08:52 AM

I'm thinking 10000 coins for a masternode. 0.25 coins as reward for every block. 1 block per min. 1440x0.25=360 coins per day / 131.4k per year. (3% inflation of current supply over year).
Does the code/fork you're working on allow POS? Idealy POS and masternodes will keep as much coins off the market as possible. Maybe 0.17 coins per block. Another 2% inflation. POW also works. I don't know which works better with masternodes.

5% inflation or less in total seems reasonable.

Yes, 10k SLG MN collateral is what was discussed, either here or in our Discord. I personally feel we should go no less.

Our first public tests were set to 1 coin per block (after the zero-block-reward PoW phase to facilitate the early swaps), but block reward is easily changed. A static whole coin was only used for the hope of easy testing.

Agreed, 1 block per minute, longest.

Yes, PoS is part of the current testing, maybe "experimenting", code. I agree, PoS + MN is best suited (ignoring the inflation-insignificant +PoW phase).

I do personally feel obligation to aim towards the previously coded maximum inflation rate of 5.5%. To keep that true with the current code and expectations now long-established. Variation from that would need strong community voice. But the balance between MN and PoS is up-for-debate. I like as you suggest, slight favor to MNs.

All specifications are at community discretion. The job is to deliver code that does so. I offer my onions only as another community member. Sorry the testing code is not in a functional state to fine tune these details more, but these discussions are very welcome!

Thanks westloin!

Is there a release date for the new blockchain/swap? ...

No, there is not. Progress was made with both the new code (a fork of a fork of PIVX) and the swap interface. However; all that did unfortunately fall idle because of numerous personal reasons and time constraints cause by them.

... Can we discuss what features it should have to make it attractive to buy?

Certainly, yes. Masternode functionality was the most-spoken request and we do think it will suite Sterlingcoin well.

Greetings Sterlingcoiners,

Sorry for the lack of communications this start of summer, 2019. Unfortunately; things have been at a bit of a rest for the SLG network upgrade and swap. This is largely due to the necessity of personal travel, and the frequency of it, and long-bear markets causing me to seek more professional contact work outside the cryptocurrency industry. But no progress is "lost" and current services remain intact.

I am looking at apartments closer to my ill mother's house that'll afford myself more time to focus on both my professional contracts and my crypto endeavors, specifically SLG.

Thank you for the continued support.

A small fork has been detected on the network. It is actively being corrected. Please check your Sterlingcoin wallet's block height against that of either explorer: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/slg/ or http://transactions.sterlingcoin.org , they are both correct.

If you find your block height does not match that of the explorers, recent snapshots are available on the website and under the 'Download' navigation.

Sorry for any inconvience.

My wallet happened to be on that fork, so I downloaded a snapshot from "Recent Snapshots" -> "Windows/Mac (Berkeley DB 6.1)" link from the "Downloads" section of the sterlingcoin.org. However it seems to be more than 230 days old. Will it help to switch to the right fork? I am not sure the fork is that old...

Yes, it should get you on the right track because most, if not all, other nodes are on the right track now. Allow it to run its course and fully sync.

There is one public node, which stubbornly stays on the wrong fork and continues to stake... I believe it forced my wallet move to the wrong fork.. Hopefully it wouldn't do that again, but I'll keep backing up the chain while syncing, so I can rollback to pre-fork state if my wallet follows the fork again.

In any case it would be nice to have a fresh snapshot on the website. I can provide one as soon as I sync.

Thank you for offering and sorry Sterlingcoin has given you difficulties. A more recent snapshot would be a great help. PM'd.


No problem. I've synced now (used the "connect=" entries inb the .conf file instead of "addnode=", to exclude the faulty node(s).
I've shared the snapshot too in PM.

Thanks for your help, and for standing by this project!

Thank you drays. The snapshot has been tested and verified. It is now accessible for others via the website navigation.
