So I think what had happened wuz...is ispace opened an old wallet with an old wallet .dat and it connected to CCE which messed things up. I can't explain the messed things up part.

do to the recent fork, I've been looking into checkpoint services.
the Cryptopia bitbar pool has been going strong, and their hashrate has topped over 51% several times.  Good for them, bad for the rest of us.

I've emailed dreamwatcher to re-sync his node (and blockexplorer) to the chain that Cryptopia is on - the longer chain wins anyway , right ?!

I've got some more studying to do on checkpoints, but so far it looks like a fairly simple update to the source code, and a mandatory wallet update.
I don't know if a re-download of the blockchain will be required or not, I let you know later after I test it.

I don't have a time frame yet, as it's not an urgent matter, . . . .    I'm just getting tired of these stupid forks.   Sad


It looks to me like ispace is on a 0.4.0 version of the wallet. They had some kind of hardware failure which was catastrophic and had to rebuild the whole pool without backups or something like that.  I see on CCE that there is a satoshi node in the list again also. I think if CCE can make it so to not allow any node to connect to them unless they are the correct one might prevent some of this. Also obviously ispace needs to use the newest wallet. I checked cryptopia against CCE like 5 seconds ago and they look to be in sync. Also H2C is in sync with the both of them CCE and Cryptopia
I've been it contact with Dreamwatcher, - hence the re-syncing - and he has been helpful with the information I need for the checkpoint server.

I could code it so the new updated wallet will not connect to an older wallet - but I don't like the idea of leaving clients - hanging
Sure, eventually they will start looking around to see what the problem is, but we don't have much of a community network to get the word out. I was hoping to build the community up a bit before cutting old wallets off.

Anyway, so far, the plan is to issue a new updated wallet with the checkpoint server coding.

I think it happened before ispace crashed. or not.
The old wallets still work fine with the current chain, it's just when they first start up, they try to bitcoin.biz which doesn't exist anymore.
They had a hard time joining the network - plus the error measage about the checkpoints being to old among other little things.

I noticed that while ispace was down, Cryptopia miners where at times getting over 50% of the total network hash rate - and that is bad - as it creates forks.

The mandatory wallet upgrade that's coming should (hopefully) eases these problems.

As far as leaving people hanging, feathercoin recently had a mandatory wallet update and pushed out a message to all the old clients saying they need to update. you could probably copy and paste the code for that right into BTB, no?

As things are now, I can't send messages to any of the wallets.
That is one of the things that setting up the checkpoint server will enable me to do.
Kind of a "bite yourself in the ass" kind of circle.

So is this a coin swap for BTB or do we just have to download a new wallet?
Once the new wallet is ready, all you have to do is download the new wallet.
There is a possibility that you may have to re-sync the blockchain, I don't positively know yet.

Also any chance someone on here would want to take over Litebar? Bitbar devs should take it over imo. I would be willing to put $$$ towards that.
One project at a time.  I might be interested, but let me deal with Bitbar for now.

Ok thx and thx. I will talk more about it with you down the road.
So I've looked at litebar a bit, and I like it.

People were once buying this for 3btc each bar. Can you imagine that? These were wild times.

Add some features to bitbar. It should never die. For nostalgic reasons it would be great to keep it alive.

Bitbar is alive, trading and being mined - it's just most people have forgotten about it, or are more interested in 'new' and 'flashy' crypto like ETH.
It's the perfect time (and price) to mine, and to purchase.

please vote for bitbar at https://safecex.com/coin/add - (you have to have a balance on safecex to vote)

buy your bitbars at https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Exchange/?market=BTB_BTC

So I have been thinking about starting  new topics for both Bitbar, and Litebar.
The problem is the creator of this one for Bitbar doesn't login to BCT much.

The last time rbdrbd logged in was Dec 24, 2015 when he updated the OP for me.
I would like to be able to do the updates and corrections a little more frequently.

This applies to both Bitbar and Litebar

Anybody have any comments ??

All yours...you have my vote.

It will be a day or two (or 3 or 4) before I can start doing anything with litebar.
The litebar web site is gone.
The official github source mentioned in the litebar thread is gone.

I did find ONE source repo for litecoin - it will have to do.

start saving you bitcoins.
It will take 5,000,000  DOTs to get it listed on Cryptopia

Nice thing about Cryptopia is they will probably add a mining pool for litebar - like they did for bitbar.

Keep an eye out for the mandatory Bitbar wallet update.

Besides getting the checkpoint server going, there are some additional update I think people will like.

Why do they want DOTs?

The developer/owners of Cryptopia created Dotcoin (DOT) and that is what they use for purchases and services.
You can trade for them, and you can mine them.
You can mine them on Cryptopia - like most of the other coins listed there (like Bitbar) or you can solo mine them.
I mined them on my pool for a while, but decided it was easier just to buy them when I need them.

Just a heads up -
I'm switching my network service from DSL to Fiber Optic, and I will probably have to switch my static IP block address.
All this really means is access to Bitbar.co and Litebar.co will be interrupted for several hours to a day or two depending on how long it take to propagate the IP address change.

SO don't freak out if you can't connect to the website !  Grin
