This is embarrassing.

There is a small staking bug in EBT, that we knew about, that reduced the actual APR a bit.

However, what we didn't realize is that the miner goes full steam, rejecting it's own blocks until the coins are over-mature. This is part of the same bug.

We hope to have a bugfix out today.

It's going to take a couple of days for a fix because no one on the team seems to have coins the right age to test. The code changes are in, but we need to test to ensure they work. The github repository has not yet been updated, though.

After the bug fix is released, it won't go into effect for over a week to give people a chance to update wallets. The bug is of a nature where the fix can't go live until most users adopt the update.

Just to fill everyone in on what's going on behind the scenes. We've been able to verify the synchronization issues that some users have experienced. For the last couple of days, we've been trying to get to the source of these problems. This effort has required many re-syncs, which take a lot of time.

One major problem is that there are some old clients that are serving blocks from a chain orphaned over a month ago. This chain is absolutely not relevant and has been checkpointed to irrelevance at github for about a month. Unfortunately it does rear it's ugly head by stalling the synchronization of new chains. Also, we just realized that these checkpoints haven't made it into the binary releases.

In the upcoming release, the official chain will be checkpointed exactly at the point of deviation so that the index for the orphan chain never has a chance to be accepted.

Also, we plan to make available weekly snapshots of the block chain so that users can start with an easily downloadable full chain.

Because of the time it takes to test, we anticipate a release of a new wallet in two or three days.

We've been working on this synchronization problem and it looks like it has a combination of causes.

The plan is to make a major update to the wallet code base, which should solve the issues that can't be corrected on the user side. The main issue that users can't control is request and delivery of block indices, which seems to be undependable when the internet connection is not good. That's what the updates should fix.

Within 16 hours, we'll update the clients with checkpoints and some new staking code that should make minting less taxing on your processors and improve your APR from about 85% to the full nominal 100%. (This release is will not have the major code updates mentioned in the above paragrah.) The instructions below will have a better chance to succeed with the updated clients. We'll also release the first of the weekly blockchain snapshots tonight.

On the user side, the following will give the best chance for a sync, but may fail, especially with spotty internet connections. Probably the biggest problem is with corrupted wallet databases, which happens for all coins. The following instructions will repair most wallets.



1. Find the data directory for EBT

  • Windows: Roaming folder -> Application Support -> EBT
  • Mac: Home Folder -> Library -> Application Support -> EBT
  • Linux: Home Folder -> .EBT

2. Back up wallet.dat from the data directory

3. If not running, start the client (don't worry about syncing now)

4. Run "repairwallet" in the console (Help -> Debug window -> Console)

5. Let it finish. It's going to take a while if you have a lot of transactions.

6. Back up the repaired wallet.dat. Don't replace the one you backed up in Step 2.

7. When finished, stop the client

8. Make sure the backup of wallet.dat is somewhere safe, outside of the EBT data directory

9. Remove everything from the EBT data directory, or better yet, just rename it.

10. Create the following EBT.conf file in a fresh EBT data directory:

Code:
rpcuser=ebtrpc
rpcpassword=PUT_YOUR_OWN_PASSWORD_HERE
addnode=71.74.158.239
addnode=176.214.235.43
addnode=208.107.176.95
addnode=212.50.27.20
addnode=162.218.88.171
addnode=67.212.70.89
addnode=23.249.161.254
server=1
daemon=1

11. Start the client.

12. Do not stop the client until it is fully synced. Have patience, it may pause for as many as 10 to 15 minutes at places.

13. When fully synced, stop the client.

14. Copy the original wallet.dat back into the EBT data directory.

15. Start the client.

16. Run repairwallet one more time.

17. Back up your wallet once again. Do not replace any previous backup.




Remember, these instructions may fail, but a full update to the wallet is in the works, so have patience.

The following is a preview announcement. An update to the OP will accompany an official announcement tomorrow.

As promised, below are links to weekly snapshots of the blockchain. Also are links to the new release 4.1.0.1. This release fixes issues with minting that causes the processor to work overtime. New minting behavior will go into effect midnight, Aug. 15, GMT.

The new behavior will bump the interest rate to the full 100% APR from about 80% now. A delay is required before the behavior goes into effect so exchanges can update and users can adopt the new version.

Yes, it may not sync a fresh chain.

Just download the blockchain snap shot

Win Data: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8rWObF4xz1Ya0VjSlh1aFZDMXc/edit?usp=sharing

1. Stop the client
2. Delete all but wallet.data and EBT.conf
3. Unpack the files from the above link into the EBT data directory
4. Start the client

You are welcome.

Fixing the fresh sync issue is likely to take a complete codebase upgrade for the wallet, which we are working on.

We'll provide weekly block chain snapshots for as long as they are needed.

Block times are going to be a little long for a while. Someone opened a wallet with a lot of transactions and completely mature coins and minted many blocks very quickly. This caused the difficulty to go up very high (0.15 compared to 0.005 normally). If the block times get too long it may appear that your wallet has gone out of sync. But it's 30 times harder to mint a block now than usual. If you think your wallet has gone out of sync, just compare it to the block explorer at http://www.multifaucet.tk/index.php?blockexplorer=EBT

If your block count is the same as the block explorer, then don't attempt to re-sync a chain because it only means block times are long.

A change in the recent update addresses this type of problem and should reduce long block times in the future.


Update

Block times look to be getting back on track.

Apologies, the premine was burned. So there is no video bounty. We'll update the OP.


Edit

It looks like you misunderstood the OP, which lists the bounties already awarded.

If you read it, you'll see that the premine was burned on 6/18.

I think there are probably some community members interested in starting a bounty to promote and spread Entropybit.  If anyone has suggestions, I could personally kick in a decent chunk to get the ball rolling.

it is a good idea and we need to have the opinion of the dev.

kudos to the devs for sticking to the project. EBT has good potential. I hope we can get EBT on more exchanges to get more exposure. Can't hurt Wink
