Fact the previous wallet version worked fine with the blockchain snapshots , the problems never started until your last update.
So the error happen because of one of the changes you guys made to the wallet code not the blockchain itself.

It's funny how you call saving days or weeks of wasted time cheating the processes. (That kills me)  Cheesy

But you guys are running the Dev show at mint now, so your call.

It will be interesting to see if you keep your bootstrap.dat updated monthly or stop with the current one.

One less coin for me to keep updated, just remember that was your choice, when your users start complaining in mass about the ridiculous time delays, hey you wanted it this way.

Good Luck.

 Cool

It's important to consider that Fuzzbawls has played a major role in updating the code base in preparation for the 2.1 wallet as a community volunteer.  Yes, making changes to the data structure could have introduced new bugs.  An official bootstrap was released to fix these issues which allowed a continued push forward.  Who better to release a bootstrap then the dev that understands the current code base as well as it's transition and progression moving forward?  As far as future bootstrap updates go, fuzzbawls and the team have plenty of work on their plates.  Instead of just being critical of current decision making, maybe you'd like to contribute with the community to help the coin grow stronger?

I like that you regularly see issues and you aren't afraid to address them.  Your critical eye will help the community reconsider potential problems.  However, I think you should consider how you address perceived flaws.  If your a community member that wants to see a healthy mintcoin then join #MintcoinOfficial on irc and let's work together to keep mint ultra fresh.  Smiley

lets put a little more detail behind what users can expect:

START WITH WALLET CLOSED

1. drop bootstrap.dat in datadir directory
2. launch mintcoin
3. you will have a loading screen saying "importing bootstrap"
4. import time varies between computers but a modern computer will take about a day and half to import
5. bootstrap will auto rename once completed
6. if bootstrap is renamed and wallet doesn't load, you can force quit and relaunch (we are aware of certain instances where it will hang, and it will be addressed in next release)

Just out of curiousity what is the bootstrap renamed to?

One more question sorry to bother you. Just how do you know the import has been completed?

The fact I used my time to create a Free Bootstrap.dat , which would have been updated every month was my way of helping.
Also as far as my being critical, I reported some info to Fuzzbawls which I don't believe any action has been taken on, plus my remarks on how easy it would be to fix the Mint's massive orphan issue, Just Politely ignored.

Hi Fuzzbawls,

FYI:
The latest version is reporting a hacktool from an AV call K7 on Virustotals.com ,

Figured it is just a false positive , but thought you should know before anyone else sees it.

Later,
Kiklo

Like I said Good Luck.

Yep,
Probably a false positive, but it was not being reported in the Mint's previous version.
Either a code change or contacting K7 to remove the message would have been a good idea.

I figured it out I see in the datadir directory you can actually see the progress of the download of bootstrap dat file to blk0001 which is actually the created file and it is counting up.  Almost there. Thanks for you help....

For anyone unaware...

Bter is not processing mint withdrawals and has no ETA for a fix.  However, trading and deposits remain open.  Use caution.   Undecided

[EDIT] Bter withdrawal issues appear to be fixed.

Hi, it is not the mintcoin wallet having problems. But the bter exchange.
Mint wallet functions like it should.

Yeah, bter has had issues in the past. I think in the end they always came through with coin withdrawal and deposit, but you may have to send an email to support and it may take several days to sort out.  They also have high fees IMO, fees add up, like fee for trade, fee for withdrawal, and if you let your coins sit on there too long they convert it into a fractional reserve derivative or something. Lol

Honestly I'm not sure ANY user's coins were lost between btcpool.exchange, ShapeShift, and CoinWallet.co.  Is crypto growing up?   Cool

everytime there is a run up it seems to be settling at a little higher  Grin fewer and fewer people will be willing to sell for under 20 sats... I wish I could take a nice bite out of the sell wall  Roll Eyes
