I updated my Byteball wallet today to the latest version.
The application crashed with an Uncaught Exception Error.

I deleted all the files (including %appdata%) and installed the client again.
Recovering the wallet from my seed was followed by this error:

"Uncaught exception: Error: message encrypted to unknown key, device 0GY.....SRL, len=240. The error might be caused by restoring from an old backup or using the same keys on another device"

Any help is appreciated. (Do not PM me asking for my SEED values).



Looks like I probably just deleted bytes worth 1 BTC... haha always lucky.

Edit2:
Recovering any deleted files from SSD is highly unlikely.
Lost all my blackbytes, lost titan-coins worth approx 1 BTC.


Install the old version from before the update and use backup to restore on the old version. Once successful send all funds to a new installation of the new version on other machine and make a new backup.

!! SCAM CONFIRMED !!

!! DO NOT USE THE BYTEBALL ID CHECK !!


Jumio has nothing to do with it or no control over the payment adress. If you send byteballs to the ID check bot, they will be lost.

Hi Chris,

Unfortunately, we won't be able to assist you with your request. For initial support we request you to get in touch with your respective vendor as we do not entertain any end user directly. If any help is required from Jumio's end your vendor support can reach us directly on behalf of you.
Best regards,
Ankit Sharma


If you read through the instructions fully you should have noticed the warning that this process has to be performed from a single address wallet. It's not a scam, but it certainly doesn't suffer fools. No offence.

This is close to scam.

There is no warning that you are not on a single adress or whatever. The average user will run the byteball wallet, try to make the ID check and send 8,- US Dollar to this company and receive = nothing.  
That is not the way to make byteball great.

I just contacted the jumio support - lets wait see what the answer is. If no answer, no solution, no refound = scam.

The bot clealy states that you should only use a singlle-address wallet. And it also states that if the process fails, you loose your 8 dollars worth of bytes.

If you're too stupid to read a contract, you really shouldn't be fooling around with crypto. Now you loose 8 dollars, but you mght loose much more in the future if you keep acting so carelessly.

Also crying out SCAM when it's just you being stupid makes you look like a lttle kid. Which maybe you are, in which case I would again advize you to not be fooling around with crypto. Just ask your parents are another adult to handle things with financial implications.

There was another kid a little while ago who complained in a similar fashion that his payment wasn't accepted. He too did not read, the bot says the payment is only valid for 30 minutes.

The question for Byteball is: should we try and make this process kid-proof? My opinion is that we should not. Working with contracts is something for adults. Of course the process should be as easy as possible and the explanation of the terms and conditions should be clear, but totally kid-proofing it seems near impossible and not necessary.

This won't help.
I just saved the seed values and did never perform a full backup.

There is no way to block 'kids' from investing or even trying to claim free tokens.  'Kids' can also be mentally slow adults.  I see a bunch of people complain about Byteball (and all other projects as well), simply because they have no damn clue as to what they're doing.  They read what they want and ignore everything else.  So, when they can't figure out how they just spent $8, they complain the project is at fault and ignore what the transition bot said.  It's simply amazing how many of those 'kids' have no idea what a change address is or how to move coins but actually have coins to even move (without having lost them).  Almost as amazing is how many of those people have $100 worth of coin and willing to pay an $8 transaction, but complain that they haven't received $1000 worth of free coin.  They just simply have no clue and almost no amount of coaching will every help them or even change their mind that something is good or bad, because they've already made the decision in their head that it can't be their fault for having not followed directions.

So, the first mistake you made was to NOT make a full backup.  That is the biggest mistake you could make and negates everything else in terms of blaming someone else for your problem.

Why would you delete your appdata (wallet folder) just because of a one time error?  That's another mistake (second) in that even if the wallet has a problem, it can be fixed.  So, a backup (simply moving the folder) is preferred to deleting and then hoping to magically get the funds to reappear.

Since you had your seed, you knew up front that a backup of a seed only would only restore bytes (not blackbytes), as it tells you exactly that during the seed backup (and recovery).

There is not a need for a wallet update to restore from seed.  It works.  I fear you have something else going on.
Delete the application and reinstall.

why does the OS X app try to connect to google?

plus.google.com TCP-Port 443 (https)

a year ago i found out that the wallet was connecting to google services and i received 1 GB as bounty. because i missed the first airdrop this were my first bytes. I still have them and so much happened during this year. byteball i still one of my favourite projects.

thank you Tony.

My thought is a good PR is better than a good marketer. Being in industry articles is way more important than marketing campaigns.

Also a good rebranding may be quite useful to promote the coin. In particular, Raiblocks rebranded to Nano, which looks much better. I believe, if Byteball rebranded to Bytes (Balls is also an option Grin), that would draw more attention on Coinmarketcap.

And we need more exchanges. XRB was listed on Binance due to its active community. Why Byteball can't do that? Maybe March distribution will change something.

First change the units to megabytes then ticker mega

I Like that.  I think serious thought should be given to rebrand and reworking of the base unit.  Projects like Raiblocks have exploded while BB has stagnated.  This project desperately needs some eyes on it.

Your app directory "byteball" is located in "%appdata%/../Local" save it but it is better to use the backup-function in the wallet.

From what I see surfing around the crypto world is that "having no clue" of what this is all about is becoming a general rule.
A few know what this is about while the vast majority still sees the crypto world as the get rich quick scheme they love. At the end of the day they rather get poor quick.

if I kept Byteball folder in Program files x86, then your wallet with tokens will not restore?

%appdata%/../Local  is location  where info on your personal "funds" is. Program files directory keeps common files nessesary to launch client. So all you need to keep you funds safe is to backup that  byteball folder in "%appdata%/../Local", nothing else

I was not aware of the Byteball wallet on Cyptopia being offline. How long has it been offline already?

As far as I am aware, more than a month already. They upgraded the wallet to 2.0 (it was still 1.7 when they started to look into the withdrawal issues) but apparently the issues have still not been resolved yet. Hopefully Tony can lend a hand.

Cryptopia is having a few problems lately, it seems, also as it regards its relations with New Zealand banks, let's hope this exchange will not crumble. But Byteball would absolutely benefit of being in least another major exchange.
