Thanks for maintaining HBN.  

You are welcome. Hopefully things settle down here soon.


I have been making some headway into the assert failures. Essentially some of the blocks are missing from the index.  I still don't know the root cause for this. As it appears to be somewhat random? But I am continuing investigation into this issue.

Keeping a running backup of the txleveldb folder and blk???.dat files should help.  As you can quickly use a slightly older version, and then re download the missing blocks.

I'll put up weekly zips of the files so others won't have to re download the block chain many times.

Plus after you have a working backup you can always use that to catchup to current quickly.




Hello all. I have been trying to get my hobo wallet to work for a while now and I now have a simple workaround!

I'm working with Tranz to fix and will let you know shortly. Are there alot of people with assertion failed errors? That's the error that i've been dealing with in my Windows 7 setup. I'm glad to have finally solved the problem and minting is working flawlessly as it should.

I would like to know your workaround as well.  I don't have any problems with my machines, but I am curious.

From https://www.cryptsy.com/currencies/view/64

"Based on bottlecaps. uses the proven amazingly stable CAP algo."
Someone at cryptsy dont like NVC much)

I like wiki's story more http://wiki.hobonickels.info/index.php?title=History_of_HoboNickels
"..on the family tree of coins, Bitcoin would be HBN's great grandfather, PeerCoin the grandfather, NovaCoin the father, and similar coins like BottleCaps and BitGem are siblings."

And Tranz the holyfather)

I have some different minting problems (all stakes are now rejected) as per my posts in this thread....I am not sure if any of the other problems are related...Confused !



Well lets go over a few things.

1) What os and version?
2) What wallet version?
3) Are you up to speed with the block chain?
4) Is the gui responsive?
5) Is your computer clock correct?
6) have you tried starting with -reservebalance=1000 where 1000 is 1/2 your coins?

Thanks for the response: Now I seem to have solved the issues, by creating a fresh instal on a different machine. I believe the CPU performance may be the issue on other machines.  All are Win7, 1.3.1, other things check out of course (except res. bal which I didn't try)

I was using an AMD Athlon, then an alternative, and now an Athlon 2 Quad Core, but I now realise that the alternative machine had only an old Pentium 4 !

I have about 40 QT wallets for different coins, but mostly they are installed on better machines . Now I will make sure HBN runs on something suitable.

Incidentally it might be instructive to note that the Pentium 4 seemed to cope well until just a few weeks ago.

Just a consequence of having 14 computers kicking around over 10 years, and losing track of the specs. and upgrades !

OK, thanks for the info. .. Maybe it is a silly question, but this got me wondering:

If I have the same addresses in wallets open on different machines at the same time, would the faster CPU get all the stake ? .. or would there be any other curious consequences ?

Your wallets would create a worm hole and be sucked into an alternate dimension!

I would guess you would see a lot of orphans, and would likely be not very efficient

Hey I just wanted to let every know I will be releasing v1.4 tonight. To fix the open ssl bug. I would suggest everyone upgrade ASAP.


 There was some more things I wanted to get done, but we'll be working on it for v1.5 along with some hard forks.  Big discussion later.

Exciting news, then !   
Your wallet work is particularly impressive: that would have been a daunting task for some developers.


I have been a supporter (and holder) of a number of PoS coins over some time, and have watched them develop (for better and worse in some cases) with interest. We will no doubt get a lot of varying viewpoints in the run-up to hard forks.

You mean this bug "News: ♦♦ A bug in OpenSSL, used by Bitcoin-Qt/Bitcoin Core, could allow your bitcoins to be stolen. Immediately updating Bitcoin Core to 0.9.1 is required in some cases, especially if you're using 0.9.0."?

At http://hobonickels.info/ there is info that HBN are currently traded on two exchanges: Atomic Trade and Cryptsy, but I didnt find HBN at Atomic Trade, but they are traded on coinex.pw

May be somebody have more info where else our little hobos are currently listed?

I was chatting with ByronP at Atomic Trade last night and he told me that HBN is temporarily taken off of Atomic due to low trading activity there, and the resource usage of HBN.  If faststaker reduces resource usage enough then it will be readded to the exchange.  I will take them off the site for now, but the may be back soon.

Concerning coinex.pw, I have heard they are not allowing withdrawals, so have left them off for now. If you are able to successfully withdraw HBN then let me know and I will add them back on.

After trying for days to get a windows exe from source code, I am going to be very happy to see this!

Yes, I've just find info that coinex has huge problems, so it is not recommended to use.

Tranz, after releasing of 1.4, 1.3x versions will still be working, so it is not hard fork yet, right?

Correct v 1.3 and 1.4 are compatible.  We will begin talking about v1.5 which will have a series have hard forks to fix many issues.

Is there going to be an option to see PoS diff in the client like in NVC?
"difficulty" : {
"proof-of-work" : 445.30749834,
"proof-of-stake" : 0.59503705,

BTW, as I see, the main disscussion (concerning 1.5 too) is going on at cryptocointalk.com forums?

Just use getdifficulty in the debug window or with the daemon. See a full is of commands here http://wiki.hobonickels.info/index.php?title=RPC_Commands

Yes, it is there. you can do getinfo true, or getmininginfo, or getdifficulty. You can also click the green PoS arrow and it will give you PoS information.

Ohh, I see.. getdifficulty works well, I was using just getmininginfo to get a quick picture of the net.
One more little thing (may be it will be already fixed in the next version, IDK) - when choosing an option to make a wallet backup from the client, it doesn't remember the route, used before, so one have to find a folder with backups again every time - not critical, but could be useful.
