Where can  I get help with a problem I'm having with the windows wallet? It's been almost a week of me trying to contact someone to get it working so I could feel comfortable buying more potcoin. But now I'm really considering just selling what I have and investing it somewhere else...... Help would be nice.

What problem are you having? Also, what CPU/ram/windows version/other info?

Have you tried the Coinomi android wallet? Works like a charm and fast! You should be able to enter your private key there

My laptop runs windows 7, 2.6gh/z i5, 8gb ram. The problem has been that most of the time (3/4 to half) when I start the client it stops responding before it even opens. Sometimes it will start after awhile(10-15 minutes) but like last night, I had it not responding for three hours before I gave up and exited out.

Yes, I have coinomi, but I really like having my main wallets on my laptop. Don't feel comfortable putting large amounts of funds onto third party wallets, especially android apps. Was hard enough for me to muster up the courage to download the Coinbase app. A couple thousand dollars may not be worth much to alot of people, but I've taken on a second job just to start investing it. So it kinda really means alot to me to say the least.

Yes potcoin wallet. Sort of new, I had downloaded it and synched it a few weeks ago, but then this problem started happening and I've uninstalled and reinstalled it a few times. The few times I've had it start recently, it seemed to keep all of the blockchain data because it only had to update since the last time it was connected.

I'm really new to this (just acquired the first pc I've had in years this christmas) and am still learning. So, sorry if this is a normal thing that happens. I've just never been able to find any resources on this matter. Thank you guys.

if you have a laptop  than never shutdown it, just hibernate   so you don't need to open it again

coins with a bigger blockchain gonna take some time to start the wallet, it could look like the app is frozen but it s actually scanning the blockchain, you can see it with hard driver usage

if it really to long to load maybe your hard drive is very slow (could be damage, happen a lot on laptops) start to be very slow before it get really broken

Yaknow, I did not yet think to check the hard drive usage to see if it was running. I did notice that I do need a new hard drive. I got this laptop used and the HDD was only supposed to be a few months old, but if it is only that old, someone had to put it in a microwave or something because it's slower than a one legged turtle. It just made me nervous because none of the other few wallets I have quit responding(the not responding window opens asking me to wait for it to respond or close it) or take that long.

Guess I just need to upgrade this sucker a little bit. Thank you for your help.

Potwallet, even on the best PCs, takes a LONG time to sync! Get yourself a fast SSD in your new computer. That helps but even still it takes a while.

If you don't want to upgrade then find a wallet client that does not need to sync the entire blockchain. I don't know of any off the top of my head as I don't use them myself but I think this is recommended now for most users of Bitcoin due to the large blockchain.

Any way we could get a recent bootstrap for the Desktop QT Wallet?   Syncing is awful.

FYI

Washington Bill Would Make It Illegal to Pay for Weed With Bitcoin

Cannabis may be among the country's fastest growing industries, but its status as a Schedule I controlled substance under federal law poses an inconvenient discrepancy with more liberal state policies.

It's well known that pot businesses have used digital currency, like bitcoin, to work around the issue of banking and use of credit cards, given that most financial institutions, complying with federal law, will not service green industry folk. But now, in Washington state, even that's under fire.

State Senators Steve Conway and Ann Rivers proposed a bill to prohibit local cannabis businesses from buying or selling products using bitcoin. "A marijuana producer, marijuana processor, or retail outlet must not pay with or accept virtual currency for the purchase or sale of marijuana or any marijuana product," according to the bill, in which "virtual currency" also includes digital currency.

That's not the case in Canada, Colorado or any other state we are aware of.  We have previously had a legal advisor contact the Colorado M.E.D. and they did not have a problem with regulated cannabis businesses accepting digital currencies

Potcoin performed very well in 2016, we have seen the nice and organic growth in 2016. Hope to see more adoption, and potcoin is the best cannabis related coin.

The effect a virtual currency ban bill debated in Washington state will have is raise awareness of the potential benefits of bitcoin or potcoin could have.  Lets say the benefits that could be offered through the blockchain are argued effectively.  Any public debate or mandate decreed immediately increases the possibility of considerable deliberation in the future as well.  Colorado leading the country in pot sales and potentially allowing public consumption having the additional advantage in transacting for pot with a potcoin is a signaling a green light to for now.

The govt is not looking to shut down crypto for POT. The state is booting out the federal law enforcement, but they still want to make their cut. It will be taxed like stocks or some other asset, and a public ledger such as POT blockchain serves this purpose and has auditable trail.
