Downloading cryptonite wallet again,
On bottom right of screen it shows 2 black screens with a red cross, saying 0 active connection to cryptonite networks. It's been saying this all day, I tried cancelling, deleting and downloading few times but there's zero active connection to cryptonite networks.

How long do you think this will last? It's been like this since 8am UK time, is now gone 5pm

Please hellppppp

Thank you

I have 50 connections on my daemon. You might have some software or hardware firewall blocking the connections.

Thank you Pallas,

I have firewall down and McAfee off too,will try again.

On Bter.com, on the XCN deposit page, the address at the top of page with QR code...... Is this the address to receive cryptonite to my online platform ? (Or for to awallet ? )


Thank you

coinbase * 243*COIN+10*CENT / MAX_MONEY

Thanks Smiley
Lack of parentheses made it tricky, but I have finished with this:
((max_coins - mined_coins) * 243.1) / max_coins

Thanks Smiley
Lack of parentheses made it tricky, but I have finished with this:
((max_coins - mined_coins) * 243.1) / max_coins


And (max_coins - mined_coins)  should equal the balance of the coinbase account.

With lying to me can someone tell me the profitablity of this coin vs mining eth ? In other words why should I mine this and no Eth ? If I'm given a good enough reason I'll consider mining and investing. Let's first see how people respond to my questions.

This is my results with solo mining and I'll give the equation here. Though with Ethereum I think I earned less, but have only done tests with calculators and not have done an actual test (with Ethereum):

With 14 videos cars (x6 1070, x6 1060, x2 970), current averaging 500 XCN per 3 hours. Perhaps I have been lucky... or not, I do not know for certain at this time, only testing this for two days. Also using an IBM M3 server for the wallet.

Using the BTR38 Exchange (at the time of this posting):
1 XCN = .1155 CnyXcn Rate (Chinese Yen)
1 BTC = 16744 CnyBtc
1 BTC = 2336 USD

1 XCN = .1155 CNY, which converts to .0000069 BTC, the equation is (XCN/CnyXcn)*CnyBtc
For USD, 0.0000069 BTC * 2336 USD = 0.016114; or 1.6 cents
Thus:
1 XCN = $0.016 (at this time)

Which of mining 500 XCN per 3 hours holds true, would be:
500 per 3 hr = 4000 per day; which at 0.016 USD rate, means $64/day

NOTE:
Still testing the Solo Mining, this has been two days, in which I have had occurrences of my Firewall needing reboot.
My actual rate has been more like 3000 per day.
But I could be on a lucky run...  so hopefully will have a more solid answer in a few days.
I can say, I do earn more solo mining than with the pool, unfortunately.

Got to say, I am earning more with solo mining than ever with the Suprnova pool, by 10 times.
Definitely must have UPnP enabled and opened through the firewall.
And has worked best once past 12 connections.

I'll put together two more How To's (for Windows and Solo Mining), just really taking all of the postings here from people and putting it together as a doc.

Hi,how long will your pool go online?Is it testing now?
No, I'm not there yet, still researching the platforms... and having another project to work with.
But there is progress being made with the Python Stratum pool version.

I'm currently solo mining the wallet, which has proven much better results than mining from the pool.

I'm getting close to 50% accepted blocks according to my miners but I have no idea what to do about it. When looking at the miners, they say "Accepted: NO" and have a rate of about 50% give or take. They are not "generated but not accepted" in the wallet, they're just not accepted at all.
I've opened ports on my router, there's no software firewall in the way. UPNP is also enabled. I've set "-s 2" in my miners but have also tried "-s 1" and "-s 5" with about the same results.
I've tried having the wallet on a dedicated server and I've also tried having the wallet locally on each rig. Tried both internally on the same network and externally.

Should I really be getting this amount of rejected blocks?

I've got 36 GTX 1080 Ti's and one GTX 1080 with a total hash rate of about 1.1GH/s (1112MH/s) which, as of writing, is about 10% of the current total net hash. With 1440 blocks per day, I should find somewhere close to 140 blocks per day (6 per hour). However, it's more like 50 per day and 2 per hour - give or take a bit since it's about luck.

Any ideas?

Edit: If it helps, this is my wallet config:
Code:
server=1
listen=1
daemon=1
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpcallowip=*
rpcport=8252
timeout=5000
maxconnections=125
rpcthreads=11
maxreceivebuffer=5000
addnode=62.75.210.104
addnode=36.72.205.82
addnode=98.238.231.31
addnode=47.184.225.108
addnode=78.137.5.155
addnode=91.77.202.139

And this is my miner bat:
Code:
:loop
ccminer -a m7 -o x.x.x.x:8252 -u username -p password -i 64 -s 2 -r 0
ccminer -a m7 -o y.y.y.y:8252 -u username -p password -i 64 -s 2 -r 0
goto loop

I am also in SOLO now, but the wallet often causes problems, resulting in the stop work, what can be done to solve?
I you have a spare machine, I would say to build a wallet with Linux for reliability, either with Ubuntu or Mint (preferred as it is much easier to work with and a good graphical GUI). With Windows, there can be a number of items. Can even use VMware Player and then run Linux for the Wallet....

Soooo... let's say from the beginning with the Wallet in Windows:

Install the XCN Wallet for Windows
Ref:
http://cryptonite.info

Initial
I would have liked to make a How To for compiling in Windows, but I do not have the latest tools for it...
So sorry, if this is just short for the Installation only.
1. First perform all of the updates for Windows.
2. With Windows 10, to disable the automatic updates (just a preference, you can manually perform a check to update):
--- Go to this link:
https://www.howtogeek.com/262477/how-to-set-an-ethernet-connection-as-metered-in-windows-8-and-10/
--- The registry hack would to prevent Windows from sucking up bandwidth due to updates and other apps. This is not likely to help with performance for the Wallet, just a method if anyone is interested.
3. To prevent Windows 10 from performing automatic Reboots after installation of updates (very useful when doing solo mining), go to this link:
http://winaero.com/blog/how-to-permanently-stop-windows-10-reboots-after-installing-updates/

Install the XCN Coin Wallet
Install and get the XCN Coin wallet.
0. To speed things up for the wallet to sync quickly, download the latest blockchain snapshot. As it is a big file, the following can be done while this is downloading.
--- a. To find the file, go to the Home Thread at:
----- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1801595.0
--- b. Scroll down until find, “Blockchain snapshots”
--- c. Click and download from the link with the most current date.
1. To download the latest wallet for Windows, go to:
--- http://cryptonite.info
2. Click on the Blue Windows Button
3. On the download page, in the Windows section, click on either to download from the Cryptonite website or from Megazone.
4. Click to accept to download the file.
5. Once downloading is completed, copy the file from the download folder to a new folder.
--- For example (and recommended), create a new folder called, "Wallets" in the 'D' drive, Try to avoid using the 'C' (System) drive for any wallets.
--- D:\Wallets\Cryptonite
6. Navigate to the new folder.
7. Double-click the file to execute it.
8. When it first runs, two things will happen:
--- a. Windows should ask for which Firewall settings, such as Private and Public. Recommend to select both check boxes, then click on OK.
--- b. A question will be asked to where the data should be stored at. By default, it will be in the C:\users\username\AppData\folder.
----- Recommend to use the custom option with a new folder at; D:\Wallets\Cryptonite\Data
----- Again, reason is to avoid use of the C drive (system drive) and the wallet will consume space over time.
9. Once the Wallet is running, it will begin to sync, at this stage close the Wallet and let it finish closing, may take a minute or two.
10. Navigate to the Data folder
13. Create a file called cryptonite.conf
--- Right click, to create a new text file; named as cryptonite.conf (ensure it is not cryptonite.conf.txt)
14. Open up the file with a text editor, such as Notepad.
15. There are two parts to the configuration file, the first half is for connectivity and the second half is of additional addresses to connect with. This is also important if to do solo mining.
--- a. The rpcuser: Can be of any username you want.
--- b. The rpcpassword: Can be of any password you want.
--- c. The rpcconnect: Should be of the same IP scheme that is being used for the network, such as the common, 192.168.1.xxx. Place an “*” for the last octet to allow for any machine to connect.
--- d. The rpcallowip: Use as the same IP scheme from above.
--- e. The rpcport is the private network RPC port
--- f. The port is the Peer-2-Peer port for use. This port 8253, will need to be open for the external and internal firewalls.
For the first half, enter in the following settings:
Code:
rpcuser=rpcuser
rpcpassword= rpcpassword
rpcconnect=192.168.1.*
rpcallowip=192.168.1.*
rpcport=8252
port=8253
daemon=1
server=1
listen=1
gen=0
15. For the second half of the file (leave no empty lines, this is a continuation from above), the available addresses keeps changing, so best to look this up before fully entering. The current available addresses can be found in the Explorers, such as:
--- http://xcn-explorer.selektion21.de/?page=peers
16. The peer addresses will be proceeded with “addnode=” and thus would look like this: addnode=111.222.333.444
17. At this current time, from the Selektion site of peers, the second half of the configuration file would have this listing:
Code:
addnode=194.88.107.212
addnode=98.238.231.31
addnode=45.55.155.188
addnode=62.75.210.104
addnode=87.227.180.40
addnode=203.219.228.39
addnode=95.223.11.160
addnode=85.93.59.249
addnode=46.105.118.15
addnode=80.209.252.26
addnode=188.193.115.1
addnode=174.104.117.56
addnode=178.24.237.191
addnode=185.26.174.12
addnode=151.237.229.90
addnode=91.77.202.139
addnode=45.20.14.59
addnode=46.127.108.201
addnode=77.222.107.47
addnode=46.10.222.164
addnode=83.28.27.181
addnode=31.216.8.16
addnode=87.92.62.65
addnode=172.104.70.160
addnode=125.236.224.55
addnode=176.223.43.176
addnode=92.221.243.130
addnode=5.157.115.132
addnode=82.76.90.64
addnode=79.139.187.196
addnode=112.14.69.100
addnode=180.253.224.113
addnode=77.222.104.199
addnode=117.61.138.255
addnode=96.244.98.123
addnode=85.130.125.240
addnode=41.114.199.129
addnode=78.92.121.59
addnode=113.128.100.204
addnode=37.188.136.241
18. A quick method in copying down these addresses is to:
--- a. Select all of the columns and copy
--- b. Open up a Spreadsheet (example: MS Excel) and then paste.
--- c. Delete all of the columns, except for the addresses (col 1)
--- d. Insert a new column in front of the Address Column
--- e. Type in addnode=
--- f. Then copy that 1st cell into all of the rows below.
--- g. Then select all rows and columns with the information and paste into a file editor.
--- h. May need to replace the TAB spacing (select and copy the tab space, then CTRL-H for Replace with the Tab Space with nothing)
19. From Step 0, of downloading the latest blockchain, this is how to add it in. Skip if to sync from the very beginning.
--- a. Go to the Download folder
--- b. Extract the file
--- c. Go into the new folder of blockchain.
--- d. Copy all files and folder into the Data folder (either the C:\users\... ; or the custom folder, D:\Wallets\...)
--- e. Accept to merge and replace existing files.
20. Go back to the Cryptonite wallet file and double click to start it.
21. Need to get the Wallet Address
--- a. In the Wallet QT, go to File > Receiving Address
----- i. Edit the label for a name of “Pool”
----- ii. Copy the Address and make note for later.
22. To give the Wallet a test, try the XCN Faucet.
--- a. With a browser, go to:
----- http://cryptonite-xcn.com/faucet/
--- b. Paste (or type…) in the address of the wallet
--- c. Fill out the Capthcha challenge
--- d. Click on the Get Coins
--- e. Shortly, there should be an alert of an incoming transaction from the Faucet.
--- f. If not… give this some time, but if after a few minutes, check settings:
----- i. Let the Wallet fully synch up if it has not done so.
----- ii. Firewall
----- iii. IP and Network Configuration
----- iv. Verify the Wallet Address
----- v. Verify that the wallet is running

Additional Information
To get Cryptonite GUI to run on bootup.
1. Startup the wallet
2. Go to Settings > Options > Main
3. Click on the box for "Start Cryptonite on system login"
4. Click on OK

Information about Connections.
This may be useful for those conducting solo mining operations, but is not a requirement for using a wallet for transaction purposes only. Actually, for security purposes, if only to use the wallet for holding coins and not for solo mining, ensure that UPNP is disabled.
By default, UPNP is enabled by the wallet, but the network settings (and firewall settings) may be preventing it. Note, there is an increase chance of becoming vulnerable to attackers via UPNP. So take added precautions when using this feature. With UPNP not accessible, the maximum number of Connections is 8, of which will be as:
Incoming: 0, Outgoing: 8
To allow for more connections, UPNP must be allowed, in which cause there will be more incoming connections displayed.
To view the number of connections:
1. Go to Help > Debug Window
2. At the Information Tab, in the Network Section will display the number of connections. If Incoming is 0, then UPNP is being blocked.
3. Check to see if UPNP is enabled by the wallet, by going to Settings > Options > Network
4. If the Map port using UPNP is check, then great; otherwise check the box and then click on OK.
5. To verify that the UPNP port is open for Cryptonite (Port 8253), try this website:
--- www.canyouseeme.org
--- The machine's home IP should already be listed (the IP address from the ISP, not the internal IP of the machine).
--- If no IP is given, then try this site, www.whatismyip.com (or even Google search)
--- Enter 8253 for the port
--- Click on the Check Port button. If successful, then all is good. If there is just still a low amount of connections, give this some time.
--- If there is an error, such as Connection Timed Out, then there is a problem with the Firewall (External and/or Host) and/or Router.
--- This will require some troubleshooting to figure out the setting issues.
--- Note that some firewalls, such as Sophos UTM for the home, does not allow UPNP.
6. If there are bandwidth issues, such as sucking up too much bandwidth, review this page for settings that can be added into the cryptonite.conf file:
--- https://bitcoin.org/en/full-node#linux-instructions
--- Review the section towards the bottom

Host Base Anti-Virus and Firewalls
Difficult to list all of the A/V and firewalls, but ensure that the system has allow use and access of the Wallet.
If there is a problem, give a post in the forums and we'll see what can be done.

I've got 36 GTX 1080 Ti's and one GTX 1080 with a total hash rate of about 1.1GH/s (1112MH/s) which, as of writing, is about 10% of the current total net hash.
Nice set of wheels there.

Code:
server=1
listen=1
daemon=1
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpcallowip=*
rpcport=8252
timeout=5000
maxconnections=125
rpcthreads=11
maxreceivebuffer=5000

I think I see the problem, add in this:
Code:
port=8253

Also for connections, do you have 8? Or do you have more?
For example, hover the mouse over the Connection Bars, if it reads 8 (8 Out Going), then I would say this is the problem.
UPnP needs to be used. Review the post I just made with Windows for the UPnP "Information about Connections". I am in the process of how to with Solo Mining with more details of UPnP.
If UPnP is working correctly, then all of the Connection Bars will be used


UPDATE:
After reviewing... I didn't think of it first. But add in as many IP Addresses as possible into the .conf file.

Have you tried also to Run As Administrator for the Wallet?
It should not matter, but may help out.... given how Windows is Windows.

Wow ok. That was an in-depth answer thank you very much for taking the time to give me such a nice reply.
I eh... I don't have a huge mining operation going on like you do. You a serious miner no doubt. I was not willing to risk that much. I'm afraid I don't make my money back. I have a rx480 and mined with that and made a nice amount I was very happy. So when I don't game I mine. Well I have one PC setu to mine a couple coin 24/7 and to run stake wallets but that's it. Other than that I is my gaming PC to mine when I sleep or watch something on TV.

I think I see the problem, add in this:
Code:
port=8253

Also for connections, do you have 8? Or do you have more?
For example, hover the mouse over the Connection Bars, if it reads 8 (8 Out Going), then I would say this is the problem.
UPnP needs to be used. Review the post I just made with Windows for the UPnP "Information about Connections". I am in the process of how to with Solo Mining with more details of UPnP.
If UPnP is working correctly, then all of the Connection Bars will be used


UPDATE:
After reviewing... I didn't think of it first. But add in as many IP Addresses as possible into the .conf file.
Yes, all the connection bars are visible and I've currently got 15 connections on the wallet.

Adding "port=8253" to the config file didn't help and I can't connect to that port at all. I get the following when trying:
Code:
[2017-07-12 08:28:27] HTTP request failed: Empty reply from server
[2017-07-12 08:28:27] json_rpc_call failed, terminating workio thread

Note that I've tried connecting to that port from both the local machine (that has the wallet), the two other rigs on the same internal network and four external rigs. They can, however, connect to the RPC port, even though that might not be recommended.

UPnP is enabled and I've also tried opening both 8252 and 8253 on the router. I've also tried setting the machine with the wallet behind DMZ just in case to make sure that the port forwarding wasn't the problem. And on top of that I've fully disabled the Windows firewall.

Errr... I might have some decent hardware, but I'm not a serious miner... yet.

I think though with the down trend or impending crash, may be a good time to buy hardware as people will begin to sell off their stuff.
I have found XCN to be easy to mine... well, once either the pool or wallet's are working correctly as this coin does not require that much heavy horse power to mine, and has a decent value. I'm just hoping as the market goes down for awhile, that this coin still maintains some good value.

Port 8253 is the Peer-2-Peer Port for the wallet and not used for mining. So the miner files will still have the rpcport of 8252.
Let the wallet machine run and observer the number of connections. Something of where I am, I only have DSL (no cable or fiber available), so the bandwidth is slow, and seems to limit my connections. It does take some time for me to get the connections up after a reboot. Best success seems to come from being in the 20's.

And I assume you have with the wallet used the "setgenerate true -1" command via the debug window?

But if things are working correctly, which seems to be the case...
I'm not certain, perhaps Pallas or someone else may have some tips or answers.

Hi guys,
Are you sure a single wallet (cryptonited server) works for several miners?

How could I test/check it?
is there any api i could use to query the wallet/service?

I have several miners connecting to the wallet and I see they are working, they are doing requests, connected, they do the expected hashrates... however, I don't see the expected improvements in my block discovery. I could have been unlucky but I feel that I achieve the equal hashrate to the maximum of a single rig. ie if I have a rig with 72Mhash, and two other rigs of 40Mhs I dont see a 152MHash but a 72Mhash... of course this could be just "woolly thinking"

BTW. Is accurate the whattomine expected block rewards? if not, how could I measure it?

I wouldn't say that things seem to work correctly if I have 10% of the net hash but get less than 5% of the blocks with 50% rejected blocks.

Right, I got the ports mixed up. I've been connecting to the RPC port all the time so nothing wrong there. I don't get any errors when connecting or mining and things are running along fine.

The problem is that 50% of my found blocks get rejected, which shouldn't be the case.

I get that orphans can happen, but 50% of my found blocks can't be orphans.

Also, some (though very few) blocks are added to the wallet as "generated but not accepted". What does that mean? They are few and far in between though, so they're not the ones that the miner reports as rejected (at least not all of them).

During the last 37 hours I've found 82 blocks. But since I have 10% of the net hash, I should have found 222. I get that luck is involved, but my miners does report about 50% rejected.

If all those would have been accepted that would've been 164 which isn't too far off 222, which I could say is the lack of luck.

single wallet: yes.
api: the usual bitcoin rpc calls.
remember there are a lot of orphans: if you followed the thread (and if you didn't, just read the last pages) you will see that's an open discussion.
whattomine reports wrong profits: do your own math (it's always the best way); how to? read the last pages of the thread ;-)
