I have kind of a problem here with SolidCoin....

Its database is allready 10Go... where Bitcoin database is only 2Go
And has all knows, SolidCoin has only been up for 14days... I am quite concern with this matter.
Can anyone give me an explication, and tell me if it will continue to grow like this?

Thanks

It's probably only the log files.. if you have a version of solidcoin that doesn't actually crash on shutdown - it might tidy them up when you stop and start it.

I don't yet hold any confidence that the solidcoin dev will solve scalability issues though.  The solidcoin accelerated schedule and shorter block timing will mean that they will potentially run into file size, bandwidth and other scalability issues if there is any real growth in transactions.

It's possible the mainline Bitcoin developers will solve these issues and solidcoin can just copy that - but I know which devs I'd rather trust.

Still.. if solidcoin does run into some scalability issues soon, it could prove a useful dataset for Bitcoin devs to examine!

CTPA, did you check to see if it was log files, or the actual block chain?

I thought I read about a bug that made it possible for hackers to put spam in the blockchain.
But not for sure.
I know the SC exchanges are down now, because of a bug...

Ok, problem solve, most of it was the "log files", in the database directory... I shut down SC, and the whole SC folder came back to 90Mo. Thanks Julz

Does it mean I will have too shut down SC every 2 weeks. Can't I just set it, to automaticaly trash the log files. What purpose do they have?

Thanks all for your help.

It's run by a guy who likes to badmouth Bitcoin, who doesn't understand the protocol or the issues, and who makes claims like 'secure from pools' and then whines when someone demonstrated that SC is vulnerable.

Ya that could have been in part due to Mallicious Bitcoin arsehats who think their coin is holier than thou with no room for others who chose to attack Solidcoin in it's infancy and start troll wars instead of open discussion for the betterment of the cryptocurrency as a whole.

I would have some sympathy for a fork chain being attacked if it wasn't run in such a dishonest manner.  The claims on the solidcoin site are ludicrous trash.
The guy clearly didn't understand the technical issues - but went ahead anyway, claiming it was 'better'.

I'm fine with people experimenting, they don't deserve attacks just for that.. but when they push FUD about the original chain just to pimp their own money-making opportunity, it's hardly surprising some will go the full way to demonstrate why solidcoin is shaky as shit due to having an idiot at the helm rather than just 'discussing' it.

The solidcoin guy isn't 'discussing' how to improve Bitcoin-based systems - he's just a lame dick trying to take over for profit.

You can reclaim the disk space by selling all your SolidCoins and removing the application and its data folder.

Wait, the exchange closed?Huh

Well, just remove the application and its data folder  Smiley

Fiat no more.
