PIVx team should really ask us the community for help in testing the next release before releasing.

I will be willing to run tests on all my machines, PIVx has given me enough and I would like to give back and help at least with just testing.  I'm sure many of us here feel the same way.

That would be a nightmare. There will be non tech oriented people with good intentions flooding them with questions that have nothing to do with the testing. Questions like how do you view a hidden folder, etc.

It would just be beta testing the release in case of any errors while running it normally, nothing to do technical. Just run the wallet and tell us if it is doing what is supposed to be doing.

I imagine the devs do that already among themselves, so while we could increase their sample size we wouldn't really provide anything unique. Plus it'd still be on testnet anyway. This issue arose once the changes went to mainnet, and there's nothing we could have done to help that...

It was the case for 3.0.0 wallet. We had closed beta testing first, then we opened it up to the community and had open beta testing of zPIV wallet.
We tweeted it afaik and also made it known on slack that anyone can join the beta testing by downloading the RC wallet and provide feedback...

from reddit ( https://www.reddit.com/r/pivx/comments/77npm5/update_v303_has_been_developed_to_fix_a_chain/doo5e8d/ )

Quote
V3.0.4rc1 will be available in the morning.
Note; the wallet is for MN and staking purposes, it is not advised to send piv from these wallets until advised it is safe to do so.
A reindex of the blockchain will be required.

So it seems we have to wait for a bit longer. Until we are given a clear go-ahead, we should not use any version to make transactions.

And 3.0.3 won't be on the correct chain, I guess?

Congrats on having your account back.

The tests were kind of useless considering we have major issues like up to 30-40% autominting instead of 10% and everyone forking left and right and just an overall unusable network for days.

I don't think pushing multiple, such mistakes is acceptable anymore for a ~$180mil marketcap coin. I know PIVX had major issues with forks in the past and it always took a long time to fix them but it's not a small garage project anymore.



With all due respect, when you have to advise all wallets and nodes to be shut down until further notice it indicates an amateurish lack of foresight and poor planning that should be below the PIVX dev team by now.

all your opinions above, this is not a corporate world,  short and sweet, reminder: 0 coin loss to anyone, blockchain has stabilized (easy to check by block explorer)

it is ridiculous to expect/demand expect guarantees from anyone,  no one owes anybody anything this is not fdic insured at "some ridiculously small number" CD at a local bank

I have to admit his opinion is totally valid for me. Back in august 2016 when darknet was a pair of devs working from home and a lot of enthusiast helping here, the forks, problems and else when passing from POW to POS were something that could happen and watched from now, almost funny. But now PIVx is an established crypto with huge resources and a big dev team. If it's necessary to pay a testnet and work in it for months, do it. Launch a proposal and have a financed testnet running 24/7/365 to be very sure of the good shape of any update. I know this is a big leap trying to integrate zerocoinlib in a POS wallet, but IMHO the team have tried to launch the wallet in Q4 maybe a bit prematurely and well, shit happens.

OTHO, I continue being confident about PIVx team, and I will try to rebuy some in the price drop I'm sure we are going to see next days. But guys, if future needs more time, let's give it the next time.

And q327K091, all of us that have been following DNET from the beginning know that st3venh4cks and the rest of the group have made a fantastic work, and I am and will be full of thanks to them forever (and my Miata too). But educated critic is necessary for the correct development of any project. This time unfortunately the update has been a mess, let's try to get some lessons learned an go ahead, because I'm sure the problem itself will be solved in few days.

Salute

I'm not ENT dev neither affiliated with EternityGroup in any way. Simply, the coin gives good returns.

It's a blockchain, coins don't get lost.
They may not be visible atm.

Just wait for the news and updates, and keep an extra copy of your wallet.

Can't it just be fixed with the function repairwallet or so? As you said, usually nothing can go missing.

Then you are on the wrong chain. I can see no scenario where coins are lost even given the current state of things.

Is it possible to retake the PIVX positions in the community? I understand that the first necessary step would be to reassure an absolutly bewildered community by setting aside the promises and the rain of updates to the background.

Shut down the client, backup the wallet, wait for the update and official announcement.
You are now probably on a fork.
