News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

OctoCoin Core 10.4

v0.10.4.0

Octocoin is back!

Left for dead, abandoned by it's original developers, and community.  Octocoin makes a return with a shiny new Qt wallet based on the latest Litecoin 0.10.x source tree.

Behold... Octocoin Core 10.4 (v0.10.4.0).

As always, before updating please make a backup of your `wallet.dat` file.  This version should be able to open any wallet.dat files created with the legacy Octocoin client, however once opened the `wallet.dat` file can no longer be opened in the legacy client.  

Note: The pchMessageStart values were changed in v0.10.3.2.

SecurePayment CC - http://securepayment.cc has kindly offered to sponsor this release.  
Please show your appreciation by mining at their pools (http://mining.securepayment.cc).

Download Octocoin Core

http://getoctocoin.com

Yes there are Mac OS X Wallets and Windows Installers, the whole thing, done right! I'm not just some guy who's copying and pasting code.  I spent the time and effort using my skill and knowledge to build a full quality release.  The wallets below were built using the Gitian build process, the same process used for Bitcoin releases.


Source code and release info: https://github.com/octocoin-project/octocoin/releases/tag/v0.10.4.0

The Github project can be found at:
https://github.com/octocoin-project/octocoin

Octocoin Foundation Website:
http://octocoinfoundation.org

If you are unable to connect to any peers please open the debug window go into the console tab, type in the following command and press enter.

Code:
addnode octocoin.securepayment.cc add

After a few minutes your client should start connecting to peers.

Blockchain Bootstrap

It's also possible to accelerate the initial blockchain download process by using a boostrap.dat file.  Download, extract and place the bootstrap.dat file in the AppData/Roaming/Octocoin or ~/.octocoin folder.

* Octocoin was launched by the original developer with a pre-mine in the first block.  Supposedly all those coins have been distributed in bounties.
** Due to random block reward the actual number of minted Octocoin is estimated.

Known issues

It's very much possible that the words Bitcoin and Litecoin may still appear in the UI, logs, or console. If you happen to come across one of this mistakes please file an issue at Github.

Due to Octocoin's fluctuations in difficulty it's possible that new blocks may not be generated for more than 24 hours. As a result your clients may get stuck on "Octocoin is downloading blocks..." on startup. If your client is stuck in this state you won't be able to use the RPC mining functions even though you actually have the latest block. To work around it, first make sure you upgrade to Octocoin Core version 10.4, then pass the command line parameter:

Code:
-maxtipage=<n>

Where '<n>' is the value (in seconds) greater than 24 hours.  So you may use something like:

Code:
-maxtipage=432000
 

To specify 5 days (increase as needed).

You can also add that to your configuration file if needed:

Code:
maxtipage=432000

Octocoin is currently not traded at Bittrex (or anywhere else for that matter).  Bittrex once had an Octocoin market but it was closed down due to a vulnerability in the legacy wallet.

You'll have to notify them of the new wallet and see if they will now allow withdrawals.

Sounds like a plan, however I believe it would be quicker to get on Yobit to start with.
