Please accept my sincerest apologies for posting ltc related question here, but I can't seem to get any expert help on the ltc forum. Since ltc is based on btc, I recon btc expert can point me in the right direction in recovering what i believe is rightfully mine.

I have the "proof-of-work found" message in the litecoin debug.log, but have never received the 50 coins. It's been several days. What can I do to find out what happened?  The hash is

hash: 0000000001ca9c8523b1d0723566ab08ed5ef1393bdc69f78a429492c77b2cf0
CBlock (hash=6e3aea7b67053f42dd29, .........

I am not on the testnet. I was solo-mining while running p2pool at the same time using the the same litecoind. Hope some expert can help me out here.

My wallet has been consistently receiving payouts from P2pool mining.

Thank you.

Hi, how can I locate the block number in the debug.log? I mean what keyword to search for?  I thought 6e3aea7b67053f42dd29 is the block ID that I solved. I can't seem to locate a block number using the available block explore on internet. Thanks.

Quite possibly yours was not the only correct answer (i.e. two solutions appeared at around the same time).

This happens often on the Bitcoin network so I guess it might also be the case with the Litecoin network.

@CIYAM,

Yes, I can accept that another miner solved the block at the same time and took the credit. That's a fair scenario. How do I find out if that's exactly the case, and my mind can rest in peace.

I just want to make sure it's not on my end, my concurrent use of p2pool and solo mining, that might have caused a confusion for delivering the coins to my wallet.

Thank you.

That was why the question about the block height - by looking up the block # the same as yours was supposed to be you should find the answer (bear in mind timestamps are not exact indication as they depend upon each miner's computer clock).

I search for 'height' in debug.log and the return is 322395. According to a certain block explorer, the coins have been sent to another address. I guess another miner did beat me to it.

My time stamp is 1364473608, and the 'official' time is 1364473651. Is that a convertor I can use to see the time in human readable format?

Just an observation, the global difficulty should have been ~96 at that point, but for that particular block, it's at 78.

I just started mining, and did not sync my computer time with a ntp server at that point, would this affect the mining operation?

If your time stamp is out by a lot that will invalidate your block (AFAIA).

Thank you for the replies.

If ltc could ever reach the current height of btc, this will become a > $5000 US dollar lesson for me! Devil is in the details. Live and learn:)

A side note, the most expensive pizza in the world now is at $1.15 million US dollar? Referring to the 10,000 btc used to purchase two pizza pies for $40 back in 2010.

Mine hard and dream on.
