love it all !! is there a way i can use bitcoin client to solo mine by any chance ? so i can point my miners to the bt client to mine solo ?

Yes you can, make a btc config file with this data


(change user and pass for security of course)

then start the Bitcoin node

then from your pc with the miners can solo mine like when you connect to a pool but use the raspberry pi 2 IP ( for this example) address like:

(with antminers U3 example)
sudo ./cgminer --bmsc-options 115200:0.54 -o -u user -p pass --btc-address 1xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx --bmsc-voltage 0830 --bmsc-freq 0982

where the 1xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx is the wallet to get the bitcoin.

Error: Invalid -rpcallowip subnet specification: 192.168.0.*. Valid are a single
 IP (e.g., a network/netmask (e.g. or a network/
CIDR (e.g.

You need to use on the bitcoin.conf the full ip for the Pi instead ending with an *



for the full IP of the pc you will use to connect and mine on the raspberry

The ROKOS v3 "Core" is getting released in this week, it will include full wallets/nodes for Bitcoin and OKCash (OKCash will be already sync, just start and go)

We will Create a ROKOS v3 "Flavors" to include any extra wallet.
The only requirement to get included (Graphical client and node)
will be to make a 0.25btc donation by their communities or dev teams
to support the ROKOS development.  
(All versions of ROKOS are distributed for free to the users)

Will share the invitation to make the requests/participate soon after the V3 "core" release.

*********** Preparations from previous ROKOS, or if just need OK node update do next steps:

git clone okcash_build

cd okcash_build

cd src

make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=-

strip okcashd

sudo cp okcashd /usr/local/bin

cp okcashd /home/pi/OKCash/daemon

****************  Now you can start your updated OKCash node to transfer or stake your coins.

New users will just need to start the client and will be ready for use and in Sync.

New ROKOS v3 "core" requires for Old ROKOS wallets to re-sync (wallet needs db update),
to avoid this step send your coins from previous ROKOS versions to a new address
and then you can transfer them back to your new ROKOS v3 "core" wallet.
ROKOS v3 "core" wallet for OKCash comes already in Sync with an upgraded wallet ready for use.

More info on release.

Its seems to have compiled with no errors
do I need to do anything else to make it install or did it do that in the compiling process?
sorry for all the noobie questions and thank you for your patients and sticking with me you two

well just give it a try Smiley

in src folder : ./MetalCoind or something like that .... i think it will end in an error that you need to create a .conf file first Tongue

That is correct, you have compiled the metalcoin daemon, it can be used from the terminal.

To use you need to create a metalcoin.conf file (they should give instructions in their ANN) and place it over /home/pi/.metalcoin
after that is done, you can start your daemon in the terminal, go to the folder where metalcoind is at, and start it with ./metalcoind (check capital letters if it has like MetalCoind)

lol... well, when that time comes (probably by next week or the week after) you can sell me yours. I'll be happy to pick up some spare coin you might throw to the bull riders. 

Just curious though, how many coins did you sell out?

in two weeks.  Roll Eyes

if so, are you buying all the cheap coins right no? no point to buy at 300 if you can have them for 265.

just curious, how many are you willing to buy for 300?

I'm putting as much extra funds as I have into bitcoin as I can currently afford... but as of right now, unfortunately that's not much.  What I was getting at is that I think it would be dumb to sell out a lot of your bitcoins you have, when you can see a clear rally coming.  There has been so much progress and news out there of businesses starting to incorporate bitcoins, banks starting to look at the block chain (I know what your thinking, and no, they won't start there own crypto "coin"), more regulated and better exchange site platforms that allow major players to start buying crypto (Ex: gemini)... There won't be a Gox, because I don't believe there is or will ever be another Gox situation... at least I sure hope not.

I recommend you to play with futures maybe start x10 to play safe and with a % of your BTC, and fully agreed BTC gets more legitimate by the minute hence more big players gaining trust to buy, nobody can tell for sure what will happen, what's for sure is that exciting times in Bitcoin and Crypto are coming.

~/Library/Application Support/OKCash/


Make a backup of your "wallet.dat" file, and delete all the other files in this folder except for "wallet.dat"

3.- Install or unzip your new okcash v3 client and it will start to sync.

4.- For faster sync you can download a bootstrap file at:
unzip and place it into the okcash data folder before starting the v3 client.
(It will take around 2 hours for the wallet to reindex the blocks from the bootstrap,
it may seem unresponsive but give it some time and it will finish its work loading the chain)

I do confirm that I offered the OP money. I kindly asked him for help in clonning botcoin source. That would not change anything and will not make you look better. Feel free to bump this thread if you like.

I do not need your help or this thread to "look better".  My point here isn't to gain anything other than audience from those interested in or vested in your product and to alert anyone else that might consider doing business with you in the future.  Your ethics are absent and your logic is beyond flawed.  I believe you should refund those who bought into your ICO.  That's just my opinion though, of course.



It is called ethics, well done syntaks.

Complete n00b here, new to OKCash and crypto in general, so hoping to get some help from someone patient who remembers what it's like to feel like a dumbass too. Wink

Welcome to the exciting world of cryptocurrencies, and to one of the most efficient coins with no errors at all and a fast secure and growing network!

-If I understand correctly, you have to leave this wallet open on your computer to stake (earn). What exactly is it connected to, and do these connections make it/me more susceptible to being hacked or the contents of my wallet compromised? Is that why I should encrypt my wallet?

First assumption is correct, OKCash is a Proof of Stake cryptocurrency which is more sustainable long term, more fair with the coin holders and way more eco-friendly than Proof of work.

-To stake: You need to have coins in your wallet and leave it running, this wallet is a "node" in the network, The OKCash network is created by a lot of this nodes scattered around the world, anywhere where people download and start staking their coins, That is why it is Decentralized and free from middle men, as the users are the real power behind the network, so this nodes connect to each other and there is no Central authority or single points of failure like with masternodes or other way of distribution.  After leaving your wallet open, around 24 hrs later you should start getting your first stakes (coins) and this coins get mature and ready for use after 69 confirmations in the network which you can check in the wallet under the transactions tab.

-Security: The connections to the wallet are normal as they are other nodes connecting to yours and viceversa, your wallet automatically blocks unofficial or malicious nodes it detects, even so you could download and use malawarebytes to increase the security as it blocks malicious ip addresses extending even more the security of your connections, to have maximum security you should always download official clients and only from official sources.

-Wallet encryption: You should encrypt your wallet so in case anyone else gets access to your computer (Via physical or internet access) they can not use or spend your coins as they would require the password to send any transaction as well, and the information inside its encrypted.
To Stake you can unlock only the staking process by selecting the small box "stake only" when unlocking your wallet, that way will still require your password to send coins out of your wallet but it will be able to do the stake process. (A fully encrypted and locked wallet does not stake)

-If I want to back up the wallet, it prompts me to save a .dat file. I'm assuming that's in case my computer goes belly up and I lose my hard drive. How would I restore and point the new wallet install to that old .dat file if that happens?

-More properly speaking that wallet.dat file is your real personal wallet (the program people normally call a wallet is in fact a Client or Daemon if is used under its graphical or command line interface).  So your real "Wallet" and the file you should always keep secure backups of it is that .dat file.

-Wallet.dat: This file contains your private keys, in easier terms  it holds your addresses and all the coins in them, that is why only you can use those coins, because only you have this private keys, if someone else get access to the private keys they could spend the coins, hence why encryption and security is important, and having a backup of it on a secure usb device just in case of anything happens to that computer.

to restore a wallet you just need to place the wallet.dat file into the Data folder,
For example, on Windows you can find that folder at: %appdata%/roaming/OKCash and then just start the Qt client and let it Synch.

-How long does it take for coins to be considered "mature" and start earning?

The coins are able to start getting stake (earning) after the first 8 hours in your open wallet, depending on the people staking in the network you could start earning your first stakes after 24 hrs or more before you start watching a constant influx as they are gaining weight in the network.

Maturity: a coin is mature when you are able to use it, on OKCash your coins mature after 69 confirmations.

-Speaking of backing up the wallet, should you only back it up and keep the latest copy, or can you back it up again and again at different points in time? I guess I'm wondering if it's like a snapshot or not. For example, let's say starting in January I add 100 OKCash to my wallet every month, and back up my wallet to a new .dat file every month too. I lose my hard drive in month six when I have 600 OKCash. If I restore an older .dat file (say, from March when I had only 300 OKCash), will my wallet only restore that amount, or will it still restore the full amount (600 OKCash) once my new wallet syncs with the network? My assumption is the .dat file is mainly configuration and authentication, but the full amount would be restored once the network sync is correct, but that's just a guess.

This works a bit different from that perception we have of files. Ill try explain

As we just saw, our wallet stores private keys (addresses) and we have to remember that there is a blockchain (where all the transactions are stored), the blockchain is stored across all the OKCash network nodes hence is decentralized and always available.

So. If you create a backup of your wallet when it has only 3 addresses, you could consider that backup valid and all your coins safe no matter when on time, as long as you dont create another address, as that backup only has 3 saved, so if you create more addresses then you would require to make a new backup, so you really have a full backup of all of your private keys (addresses).

As the Blockchain or in this case OKChain stores the transactions, as long as you have your private keys, the coins in those addresses are safe. So if you lose your hard drive with 600 coins in it, as long as your backup holds the private key for that address, you will have the full balance, no matter if someone send you more coins to that address and you had the computer off, you would still have the 600 coins and the new ones people send you as the transactions  are stored on the Chain so are never lost, and as you hold the keys for your address, then only you can access them.

Edit: Thought of one more.

-What is your weight and network weight in the wallet mean? Does it affect how long it takes to get rewarded via staking? I've seen it say anywhere from 200 days to over a thousand days to earn reward. Just curious.

Thanks all. Appreciate any help or guidance.

In easy terms.

You could think in your weight as "age and quality" of the coins in your wallet for stake.

In more technical terms:

The weight of every address starts at 0. When an address provides a signature, its weight increases so that after several signatures, the weight approaches the number of coins in the address as of the last signature block. For example,

New weight = 0.9 * Old weight + 0.1 * Balance

If a signature is not provided by the address in a signature block, its weight decreases:

New weight = 0.9 * Old weight

This way, addresses whose owners do not wish to participate in signing do not hamper the ability to reach a majority.

If an address signs two conflicting blocks, its weight is reset to 0. This is to limit the power of malicious stakeholders.

Hope that helped, Welcome to the community

which version of qt is installed?  How about the other packages and dependencies installed for compiling other wallets?

v2 will be released in the coming days and comes with everything ready, a Bitcoin, OKCash, Litecoin and Dogecoin wallets, and will be released in different flavors (flavors will be aimed for different communities to include their wallets and incentive cross collaborations ) first flavor will include a Tesla wallet for their Pi enthusiasts.

It's really not obvious that there's a full feature forum along with the website. You get to in by selecting "members" in the top nav bar, then "forums" or by selecting the "altcoin announcements" button at the bottom of the homepage. I'd suggest "forums" be it's own item in the top nav bar, and then changing the "altcoin announcements" button at the bottom to a "forums" button that goes to the main forum page,

This is an excellent forum implementation. Very well laid out, very user friendly, nice features, and all it really needs is some regular contributors.


Just visited and seen the Forums link in the nav bar! Good job. The forum is a big part of the site and one the main areas I think the site will grow.

Thanks a lot Tsquared and batesresearch, followed your suggestion and I agree , it s way more accessible now, will continue to add more content this week as well.

 On IRC we merged some cryptos channels we admin with the #altcoinsfoundation IRC group for collabs or support to users is growing also.
