1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: please advice about bitcoin core wallet issue ... "input already spent" on: August 20, 2021, 09:01:10 PM
Why don't you use coin control feature?
You can click on "Inputs" when making a transaction and select the UTXOs you want to spend.
Thanks.
It wasnt enabled, so I didnt see "Inputs" button and had no idea that I can activate it.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / please advice about bitcoin core wallet issue ... "input already spent" on: August 20, 2021, 07:34:51 PM
The problem is that my wallet history does not include dozen or so completed outgoing transactions and I now often cant send bitcoin - it gets rejected by the network because some inputs are already spent. Thats because at some point I must have overwritten newer wallet file with older copy and continued to use that.
Wallet now is almost impossible to use - I must cancel transaction and try again and again until core wallet doesnt pick "spent" input...

Today I deleted all "blocks" and "chainstate" folders and started to sync with network from 0, but that will take weeks to finish.

Will it find and add missing transactions to my wallet?

I hope someone can help.

We need SegWit ASAP...
At this moment there are ~63 MB of unprocessed transactions because max capacity of 1MB per 10 minutes blocks have run out of space.
SegWit is optimization that doesnt fix core problem, right?
Why cant they just change it to 1MB per 5 minutes or 2MB per 10 minutes?

I had 0.8KB BTC transfer of ~$200 stuck for 6 days with ~$0.3 fee.

decided to test viabtc accelerator, it has reached requests limit for that hour ... waited until new hour, submitted tx within 1-3 seconds and it got accepted.
checked ~20 minutes later and it had 5 confirmations...

I.Grozni thanks for that link!
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: is it possibe to store wallet.dat seperatly from datadir (bitcoin core wallet)? on: February 12, 2016, 09:22:08 PM
You could create an symlink to the e:\bitcoin\blocks in the original data dir.
That works.

Thanks.
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / is it possibe to store wallet.dat seperatly from datadir (bitcoin core wallet)? on: February 11, 2016, 07:13:40 PM
I had installed bitcoin in c:\bitcoin however C disk has run out of space and I moved blocks to other HDD.

bitcoin core does not load wallet.dat that I have stored in c:\bitcoin
Instead it creates new wallet.dat file in datadir (E:\bitcoin)

Is it possible/how to get bitcoin core to load original wallet.dat ?

I really do not wish to just place wallet.dat in E:\bitcoin (unencripted HDD).
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: How long would it take me to complete Bitcoin client upgrade? on: May 20, 2015, 10:01:45 AM
Recently my laptop (1.9GHz dual core) took ~5 hours to synchronize ~3 weeks of blocks.

My PC is 3.1 GHz dual core and it synchronizes 1 day worth of blocks within 10-20 minutes.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / How long would it take me to complete Bitcoin client upgrade? on: May 20, 2015, 07:31:57 AM
I currently run bitcoin v0.8.6-beta on this PC and received note that it is obsolete.

Last time that I installed bitcoin wallet software, I think that it re indexed all blocks and that took 3 or 4 days.

I would like to know, if I install newest version (bitcoin-0.10.2), will it again need to re index all blocks?

Game is going to start in 40 hours.

This is how it Works:

Invest some coins and choose a multiplier, let's say: x2.

Then your investmetn start earning from new investments. As soon you get the target, you receive the payment.

If after 100 hours you didn't get the target, then you lose.
What kind of advertising strategy are you going to use and whats your budget?

Is it just this forum and maybe a few random promoters who possibly would try to refer some new members for 2% affiliate bonus?
10  Other / Beginners & Help / Is it normal that Bitcoin Core wallet takes hours to verify blocks and start? on: June 24, 2014, 10:28:17 AM
I installed Bitcoin Core on my laptop and copied ~22GB of bitcoin data from my PC (blocks folder, chainstate folder, wallet.dat ...)
I launched Bitcoin more than 6 hours ago and its still hasn't started. Task Manager shows that its using %60+ CPU and 500-600 MB RAM resources.

Is that normal?

I think there must be a reason why the OP choose to post in the "gambling" section - go figure
Investing is kind of gambling - any single program can close down for variety of reasons.
Some programs are more likely to fail than others and Bestemoneys.com seems to be low risk.

Difference between gambling with casinos and gambling with investments is that with casinos most regular gamblers will lose more than they win.
Back in the day I made ~20% - 40% profit per month for more than two years by playing with investment programs, then US government closed down e-gold.com and I lost most of my working capital.

How much is the maximum Bitcoin allowed withdrawal?
I think that bestemoneys.com does not have maximum limit for withdrawals.
FAQ page only specifies minimum withdrawal - $0.1 and maximum deposit - $5000 per day.

Anyone used this and have feedback? it doesn't sound right..
bestemoneys.com is four years old site. I searched, but no one had posted about it here.
We can find many feedbacks in other forums.

Oh no.  We haven't lost money and our fees have actually gone down.  I must be doing something wrong.
I have no doubt that most exchangers currently do make nice money by exchanging bitcoin.
And experts know actual buy/sell requests trend and will profitably adjust balances in buffer accounts :')

I for one am unclear why that's a distortion of your argument.  People don't stop needing things just because holding on to money longer can mean you'll get more value for it tomorrow.
We arent talking about money in general. You can buy stuff online with creditcard, bankwire, paypal, etc... and decentralized, anonymous currency - bitcoin (good idea only as long as its stable and reliable payment option).
Obvious trend is: many who have bitcoins that become a lot more valuable with each passing week (compared to real money like $, EUR, whatever), do see it as an investment and are more and more reactant to buy stuff with bitcoin.
16  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: what is killing bitcoin by drastically deflating it? on: April 04, 2013, 07:32:05 PM
WHY? The most obvious aspect: More and more people become hesitant to make purchase today and decide to wait few days to get it cheaper - bad for merchants (10-30% of potential sales are lost).
Yeah, and electronics manufacturers are going broke because everybody waits until the prices drop before buying. Sorry, your argument isn't supported by the facts.

Why did you quote mine and then strawman my position?
17  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: what is killing bitcoin by drastically deflating it? on: April 01, 2013, 11:03:55 PM
I see that most of you are trilled that bitcoin value quickly increases.
And that really is great for those that invest in virtual bit coins and intend to profit by selling (outexchanging) them later.

But bitcoin <-> real money exchanges usually make small (traditionally - ~2%-5%) profit per exchange.
With such deflation (~3-6% per day) exchangers actually lose by selling bitcoin, so fees should go up...

While bitconin's value deflates so fast, its very bad for buying/selling stuff & services.

What is the difference for the merchant between the situation a few weeks ago and the situation today?
...
I guess, that would be frustration - more $ could be made by doing nothing.

Many bitcoin holders may feel like its a good thing that bitcoin -> $ value doubled within past few weeks,
but thats terrible news for people who sell stuff and would like to accept bitcoin...
20  Other / Beginners & Help / What happens to inactive Bitcoins? on: March 13, 2013, 05:21:27 AM
A lot of people (probably 20%-40% per year), who somehow got bitcoins, will end up forgetting them.

Within few years a lot (if not most) of the bitcoins could be hold by inactive accounts.

How does bitcoin system handle that?
