Make sure you back up your wallet regularly! With Bitcoin-Qt, it needs to be backed up at least as often as every 100 transactions (both sends and receipts) or new addresses.

In a way it's good, because then slow people get the chance to upgrade.. I see nodes still with the first client I released ffs Tongue

But hopefully it would not take that long. I guess we find a way to make it more profitable for the miners to mine. E.g block reward @ pools. Will get back to this later.  Smiley

If you run the installer pkg do you still need to place a config file? I am still having issues syncing up so am curious if I can get rid of that yet these days or which is the bad node i need to remove from the list?

Try use the list mentioned in the other thread. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=309716.msg3335622#msg3335622

I'm still trying to map out bad nodes, and is thinking about doing a forced rejection. E.g if version less than XX: disconnect.

Remember, on first sync, the GUI has a "bug" showing it waiting for the last block, even you are at the last block.

You can verify if you're at right block when you go to: https://anoncoin.net/exp/

Hope this works for you. Sorry for the problems!

Actually have been using those nodes from the other thread but never finished syncing. I just deleted everything except my wallet.dat and ran the installer pkg without an config file. It is now fully synced? So do we not need a config after all? nonetheless its working! but confused on how..lol

 I am guessing if they haven't updated from the first client the miner is probably buried in a room full of a hundred others in the middle of the desert to be looked at again one year from now..just a guess

On another note i would add in the main post and your site how to update your wallet if you already have one as i see no info on that anywhere and probably would be good piece of info to have. Maybe a mailing list on your front page would be a easy way to keep the Anoncommunity all on the same page with updated news/wallets,etc..

and one more suggestion..plleeeeaaase!! can we get rid of the grey scale wallet look at some point in a future update even if it just has some black borders or something very simple to give it a little bit of a spiffier look. With how beautiful the Anoncoin.net site looks I am sure your team can put together something classy Wink its the small things..p.s Thanks again!!!

Yes as said earlier we got some bad nodes out there. And it's just luck to not hit them. I'm trying to map them up to make sure they get banned.

Well, it's a easy task. The reason this is not done is because I lack time to do it. Nor am I an designer. But if a designer would join the Anoncoin team I wouldn't mind, actually it would be great.

Anoncoin, like all other coins with GUI is based on Qt. Qt support themes. And from the little I've read about it in newer time, it seems like they use CSS/JavaScript like stuff to do this. E.g simple, but still, I need to do the more advanced stuff in the coin and services around it.


Ref Qt styling:
http://thesmithfam.org/blog/2010/03/10/fancy-qslider-stylesheet/
http://thesmithfam.org/blog/2009/09/18/qt-sidebar-tutorial/
http://thesmithfam.org/blog/2009/09/17/qt-stylesheets-button-bar-tutorial/
http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5.1/qtdoc/index.html

The desktop environment KDE, based on Qt have done this since I started with Qt for about 6-7 years ago I think.
See http://kde-look.org/

(However, I think they does it in another way)

Some great questions where asked and answered, so I paste them here:

I would like to see ANC expand darknet service/features.  
. ANC/BTC/USD.. crypto currency exchange, payment processor

You can't make USD "anon" in that matter other than meeting on the street exchanging physical money.

. i2p service built into AND android client

I2P is Java, so we can't just build it into the wallet. All of the devs have dayjobs and the I2P project itself is, well, I'm bad at estimates but at fulltime work each day except weekends, maybe it's doable within May 2014. I2P is also in constant change, so it will require a lot of resources to maintain it. There exists a C++ project for I2P but it is always behind trunk (java, current version).

However the Android client can we integrate the I2P router in, and that's the plan too. But we still have some issues we need to solve with the original client before jumping on another completely new project.

. i2p irc chat or some other messaging system built into client

Why don't I2P-Bote? or some other already build in I2P?

. i2p webhosting

Most likely no one have done it yet, is because of it's darknet.. Even with, or without a clear TOS, your hosting service will be abused to things like Child porn etc.. There is few people supporting stuff like CP, nor want to host a service that can be abused to this.

I can say that someone is working on a solution like that. But they are now stuck with the problem you read above. They do not want to host any child porn. I guess you saw what happened to the guy behind Freedom hosting from the Tor network.

I also hope to see ANC expand services for Clearnet:
. anonymous encrypted cloud storage with android ap (coincloud.no)

Under heavy development. Actually the time of me writing this is delaying the time the service will be launched on since I help out with some of the code. Tongue

Also, since coincloud.no support sync via Tor/I2P, you can see this as a type of darknet service too. But it's clear where it is, and does not hide like other services.

. anonymous encrypted email service (possible to add to coincloud.no)

There are talk about email hosting. But we might not want to store that in the cloud. E.g make it more safe.. Like a hidden I2P server somewhere in the world Wink

. vpn service (compete with cryptostorm.is)

Great, someone from the community or our PR guy should look into that. I'm just developing.

. implementation of existing clearnet auction/classified market to support ANC or develop something like bitwasp specific for ANC.

People are free to set up any service they would like to our coin. Smiley We, as the developers of Anoncoin is not responsible to force services up for the coin. Just like the Central bank of US are not responsible to force use of USD in businesses, even trough it does Wink We're also humans, which means it's a limit to the number of projects we can do at once.

If i had the designer skills I would so be on that! but atlas I am lame and hope someone has the time and skills to spiff up the Qt just a bit Smiley  Bottlecaps just changed the icons on the new wallet update and even though its just a few small things it makes for a much cleaner look imo.

Not sure what is going on but it looks like Anoncoin has forked twice in 2 days on www.miningpool.co

Yesterday I downloaded and compiled new source and the client seemed to be on the same chain as the only working block explorer: https://anoncoin.net/exp/index.php

Checked back today and it appears we are now on a different chain again  Huh

Pool is on block 87084 block explorer is showing current block at 87068??

Any idea why this keeps happening?

As there seems to be a recurring forking issue going on which we do not know the cause of we will be releasing a reworked version of the 0.7 branch instead of 0.8. The new 0.7 release will still include the kimoto gravity well difficulty algorithm.

We will be back with more news as soon as possible. We apologize for the trouble the latest release has caused.

Hotfix - downgrade 0.7.5

Windows binaries released: https://anoncoin.net/downloads/0.7.5.0/
Signed by me.

Hoping to get binaries for lin/osx ready within next day or two.

This release still have the new protocol in place when we hit block 87777.

Source: https://github.com/Anoncoin/anoncoin

Abstract: It seems like an yet unknown patch between bitcoin 0.6.9 and bitcoin 0.8.5.5 didn't like the calculations Anoncoin used. Messages(blocks alerts, etc) between nodes got delayed, and some pools reported crashing. We have locked into a "last known good block".

More info is comming.

How?

Goto %appdata% (type it in the dialog after pressing windows+r), then click into the Anoncoin folder. Delete all files except wallet.dat.

If you wish to contribute to find this yet unknown bug, please send in your debug.log as a PM or mail.

Reminder: Upgrade to latest release if you are having problems connecting to nodes.

A new mandatory update for ANC is released to deal with reported node communication issues. Due to an unknown bug in the 0.8 branch which may cause a minor chain fork issue we reverted to the latest 0.7 branch with modifications. The latest stable release (0.7.5) is now available for download at https://anoncoin.net/Downloads.html
