I was able to build the wallet successfully, and sync the blocks. But I get an error about the Checkpoint being too old:

https://github.com/Tranz5/bottlecaps/archive/2.2.2.0.zip

OK that's odd. I built from the github code and only ended up with 2.2.0.

Time to rebuild I guess.

Thanks Smiley


https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=241445.msg11707291#msg11707291

I swear I cloned the current git. I don't know what happened. Either way, it's building now.

Git it built?

Heh, yup. All built. Does anyone know if you can mine from several hosts to a single wallet? It's been about 2 years since I touched this stuff.

I'm about on the same timeframe for forgetting the hands-on aspects of mining. For anything scrypt I ususally include DOGE in my search strings; Shibe tend to be prolific content creators. If nobody chimes in i'll see what I can track down or maybe give a solo setup a shot myself.

The wallet is a memory hog and syncs very slowly. There's a blockchain download a few pages back, that would get you synced a bit faster.
 
I don't think there ever was an official site.

Tranz5 is the main dev for the coin now. There isn't really anything that needs changing or fixing right now.

Here is the Github: https://github.com/Tranz5/bottlecaps/

He also handles HoboNickels.

Is Bottlecaps still minable or have all the pools closed down ?

I see there is a maximum amount of coins that can be awarded per stake, is that to limit the annual inflation rate or have I misread ?

You can always solo mine if you have ASICs. I haven't checked for any pools lately, but if anyone knows of any please post them.

Yes that is a mechanism to both control inflation but more importantly its function is to increase network security.  Without a max reward/stake many people would just keep all their CAPs in a single large block to make life simple (ie open wallet once every 15days and get one stake, recombine into one block, close wallet).  By having max/stake people have to have many blocks so they do not go past the max stake.  Having many blocks competing for stake gives better security by higher difficulty (better security) and additional inflation control by CAPs method of decreasing reward % as difficulty rises.  With higher difficulty and smaller blocks it takes longer to get a stake so you keep your wallet open longer which also helps with peers etc. 

A pretty well designed system that works pretty well.  Grin

That's what I thought, the capping of the Stake rewards is what is giving this coin a long life, other altcoins have come and gone that use the same kind of PoW/PoS hybridism but with massive stakes though this one has a developer that took over at the reigns that knows how to save things without causing total destruction.

Hey all, I'm back into CAP after being away for a while. After the Cryptsy fallout I sold my position. I'm back now and plan on sticking with CAP longterm Smiley

I just synced my wallet, running 2.2.2.0 which I think is the latest. I also used Kiklos snapshot to get the blockchain faster. Also, here are my conf file settings which are working well, I now have 16 connections with these nodes !!!!

I have tried to solo mine bottlecaps to no avail. I tried everything I could think of to get it to work. I set up my config file as stated on the first page. I opened the firewall on pc all the way. I went into the router and setup port forwarding for the pc ip and bottlecaps port. I tried multiple ways to connect to the wallet server but I can not connect. It says bad URL or user name password. I tried using sgminer on the same pc locally using GPU. No luck. I tried connecting from Titan miner through my wireless network. No luck. I am assuming at this point something is wrong with my config file but I don't know what it could be. I have it setup as shown on the first page. I use Ipconfig /all and use my local ip 192,168.x.x. Can some one help with a suggestion.

Looks like CAPS has died a slow death
instead of going out with a bang!
So sorry CAP - RIP
