I'm confused. If the problem is corrected every time the back end is restarted, then how it's there not much that the Trezor guys can do about it? Isn't that something that they would work on preventing


Because the back end is outsourced?

The guys at Armory are aware of the issues and a fix is in the works.

I gather you're on Windows 8. Can you still lower process priority in that one like it used to be possible, via the task manager? It won't speed up the process of course, but should give you better response on other tasks running on the system.

When using a RPi, I'd recommend to keep a fully configured second RPi ready to go so in case the first one dies it is a simple plugging exercise to get back mining quickly. (Just make a full backup of the SD card once everything is set up and runs as it should).

If you can't spare that extra 35$, at the very least keep a second SD card ready.

Better yet, immediately exchange any class-6 or lower cards for a class-10. It will help protect the OS during any power outtages, whereas the cheap class4 cards almost always end up being corrupted by a power blip

I don't recall talking about SD card classes. What do you mean change immediately? You can purchase any SD card type for your RPi as you wish to begin with. You make a fair point though, but still: if you only have one class 10 card and it fails and you don't have a backup, your downtime still is longer than if you had a back up ready to go.

I thought that the OP worried about the block size by 2020, it will indeed become huge amount of data downloading by 2020, like several TB  Cheesy

I bought 3 TB the other day for 130.- USD. How much do you think it will cost in 2020?

Update @Newar, it is in Meta. Theymos answered too.

Yes, I see. Even before he posted this topic here, odd  Huh


It didn't answer my observation, but it's back to normal for me.

just restarted backend ... should be ok now

Yes, now it is OK.

But if you have to restart the server often, that might be an indicative that something weird is in the software.

Is the back end down again?   Mine is just continuously just trying to pull of the transaction history again Sad

This is a bummer that this is starting to happen more and more often.   I was definitely telling everyone how great the trezor is.   I still think it is, but reliability is definitely going to become a factor...

It works for me. It is a known bug and they are working on it. Just a few pages back in this thread...

It will become a non-issue as soon as more wallets integrate it in to their software. Not much the Trezor team can do about that.

It can be trustless.  Check out how woodwallet does it. I think they use bip038


New ways might have major flaws in it. I just have to wait until it will be perfect.


BIP38 has been around for a year. So, yeah...

Should probably be in Meta, but I noticed "weird" things today too like smileys not showing and the "coins" under the member names showing as ***.
811  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Problems with synching on: October 16, 2014, 03:26:26 AM

Of course it's trivial, it just needs time. From my observation, the "fresher" the blocks are the slower it gets. CPU will spike because it's validating the blocks. It's not just about downloading.

So if you have tried the torrent, tweaks like the connect= command etc., all you can do is wait.

In return you will know that the blockchain on your harddisk is *the* blockchain and don't have to rely on a 3rd party as you do with thin clients. Worth something, IMHO.

Companies like Bitmaintech has own ASIC's and much lower PCB costs in China and nobody is willing to pay more money for "Made in Germany" like Burnin Mining boards.

ASIC hardware was overpriced from the get go. More competition, rising difficulty and (now) lower exchange rate are bringing the price down, because there's less buyers buying blindly whatever they can grab because they think they can print money for free. To a certain extent this was foreseeable.

Hindsight is 20/20 of course, but the best option would have been to design in Germany and produce in China.


Only the possible ROI is important.

Nothing new here.  Wink

 LocalTrader, which is like LocalBitcoin, but built right into your wallet, and much more secure and anonymous.

Any thoughts on expanding LocalTrader, so it could offer functionality similar to i.e. bitpay? https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=293472.msg9177218#msg9177218

I think after being burnt twice (Avalon for one, Cryptx for two  Angry Sad ), his interest has probably moved elsewhere or he only deals on a corporation level.

  But I think they already are doing a 'several peers' download, since, as I type this, I notice the blockchain is being downloaded from "7 peers" it says.

TonyT

That's the peers you are connected to. Only one of them will be the "sync-node" which is the one you actually get the data from. If you start a new system from scratch and that sync-node happens to be a slow one you can wait for a very long time. Unless you delete peers.dat and connect only to a single "known" quick node until you have the blockchain data. Once that's done you can connect in the regular way again.

You can see which one is the sync node in Bitcoin Core (formerly Bitcoin Qt) too: Go to the debug window and in the console type: getpeerinfo .



If you are using Armory, I highly recommend to donate Smiley

[...] It might take a few hours or days of computing power, depending on how many keys/transactions you've done, but it can be done.  At least that's what I understood, reading between the lines for the last few hours.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

TonyT

The few hours / days are mainly needed to get the underlying bitcoind to sync with the network and verify the addresses, once done Armory will build a database. But, say, if you restore your wallet on an online Armory system that has the blockchain and database already up to date, it probably takes not nearly as long (depending on amount of addresses and transactions those addresses were involved).

Armory is also working on an overhaul of their backend, so that will help speed things up further. Bitcoin Core devs are working to get bitcoind to download the blockchain from several peers (unlike just one, like it is now), so that will help speed up things too.
