so I changed the dnsseed to btb.altcoinwarz.com and updated the repo at https://github.com/Crypto-Currency/bitbar

Windows-qt wallet link is updated on the Bitbar home page at ,or you can use this link.

Not really an important update, you can skip it if you wish. While using the older wallet,if it can't connect to any peers, close your bitbar wallet and add:
Code:
addnode=btb.altcoinwarz.com
to your bitbar.conf file, delete your peers.dat file, and restart your wallet.

I just checked peer connections, and altcoinwarz.com has 16 connections.

I will start the new checkpoint server once I know CCE has stopped theirs.

As for the block explorer ... that will take some time as it is written in python and I don't have any experience (yet) with python.
I'm setting up another server box to experiment with it.

If anyone can walk me through setting up the open source CCE version to use withr bitbar and litebar, it would really be appreciated, and speed up the process   Smiley

Windows-qt wallet link is updated on the Bitbar home page at ,or you can use this

so the latest download i can get is v0.4.4.006

but the only peers i've managed to have connect show using getpeerinfo
a "subver":"/Bitbar:0.7.4/"

and none of those peers is feeding me any blocks. Sad face
was there a hardfork? is a newer than 4.4 version downloadable?

4.4.006 is the newest wallet version. (no hardfork)
0.7.4 is the client version - very confusing. I'll change that in the next update (if I remember)

Now then ...
Our long time blockchain explorer provider (CCE) has decided to stop providing that service.  They were also running our checkpoint server, and providing our dnsseed connection.
The source code (and windows-qt wallet) has been updated to reflect these changes.
I am now running the dnsseed and checkpoint server at btb.Altcoinwarz.com
Hopefully I can get an explorer working there as well.

let me know if you still have trouble syncing your wallet.

    "height" : 202399,
    "timestamp" : "2017-01-04 03:33:59 UTC",
    "checkpointmaster" : true
}

so i put dnsseed=btb.altcoinwarz.com into my conf file.

not sure it made any difference since i was already managing to get some peers.

still no block movement with a few peers.
then it occured to me the bootstrap blocks i downloaded from cryptochainer may be weirding things out.
i deleted the blocks and index, restarted.
and now things are moving.

cryptochainer worked well for me bootstrapping several other altcoins. *shrug*

DreamWatcher offered to help me with setting up his open source version of CCE ( our soon to be turned off block explorer)
After trying (with my total lack of python knowledge) to just set up the dependencies, I declined his help and decided to write my own with stuff I'm familiar with.
Feel free to check up on my progress at http://btb.altcoinwarz.com
can't guarantee it will be up and running   Wink

As has been announced, I will be shutting down CCE for now. I will not be renewing any sponsorship's and explorers are being shut down as they expire.

There are a few reasons for the decision to shutdown related to the changing market of cryptocurrencies.
I am also attending college again and working on a electronics specialization. I will be attending full time the next couple of semesters which will severely limit my time for other projects.
CCE might come back at a later date and I continue to hold the domains, rights etc to the CCE brand.

Because BTB has been on CCE for so long, I have been reluctant to shutdown the BTB explorer due to a lack of full fledged replacement explorer for BTB.

Searching around a bit I found:


https://prohashing.com/explorer/Bitbar/


The CCE Bitbar explorer will be shutdown by the weekend and I wish all of you the best of luck in the coming years.

https://prohashing.com/explorer/Bitbar/ is is good choice.

my efforts at making an explorer is slow going. Deciding on which database to use, what information to keep in the database and what to query live...
Work has best busy - last four weeks they have been sending me out of town, so most of my computer time is just on the weekends.
Still progressing though.

guess you could download the chain again ....

while you are at it, have you updated your wallet ??
(mostly a reminder to everybody)

Ya, I haven't updated the btb-skins wallet yet.
Been thinking I should make a windows installer package for the skins wallet to make it easier to use.
 - planning on adding an automatic skins update feature to the wallet too, so it will automatically download new skins.

been planning a lot of things ...
that's about as far as it's gotten ...

Work, (my paying job) has been keeping me very busy - but they gave me a 25% raise, so I guess I can work a bit more  Cheesy

congrats on the raise!

I'm redownloading the blockchain now and updated my .conf with all the peers from Prohashing and the other explorer.
