I have an issue with the wallet (1.17) on the computer I've been running it on for a year (windows 7 64bit), the splash screen loads up, it loads the block index etc. The UI then pops up and sits there in a Not responding state. This happened after the computer lost power while the wallet was open and unlocked for minting.

The debug.log isnt showing any errors, the daemon seems to be running fine in the background behind the UI (I can see it updating the blockchain correctly).

I've found a way to get it running by simply copying the data to another computer (also windows 7 64bit) and running an identical copy, it runs fine then. Which leads me to think it's likely a temporary file or something lying around on the original computer that's not in the data folder or the mintcoin program folder.


You need to download and run the whitecoin wallet, then close it and open your mint wallet and it will be ok, I know it seems odd, but it works!

When you do this, do you need to let the Whitecoin wallet sync completely before closing it out, or, will just running it for a bit, and then exiting work? I don't currently have any problems, just curiosity.
You just open it for like 15 seconds. Then go back to Mintcoin and it should work. I believe any Mintcoin clone coins can do the trick too.

Fixed it, I deleted the BitcoinURI file in the "C:\ProgramData\boost_interprocess\Select LastBootUpTime from Win32_OperatingSystem" folder
Okay great. How did you figure that out? Smiley
I used Process Explorer to view the handles used by mintcoin, ignoring dlls, files in the mintcoin folder and registry entries that left just one file Smiley Tested it on a fresh datadir just to be sure. I guess whitecoin etc. are using a more recent version of the boost library.

That's a great thing to know - thanks for sharing!

Start MINTing on arm processors - low power cheep nodes for everyone Smiley

Startup your Raspberry-pi's and CuBox-i's

A bit of a hack needed but it works

https://github.com/MintcoinCommunity/Mintcoin-Desktop-Wallet/issues/11#issuecomment-101760242

Update on Mintcoin on ARM architecture:

3 weeks to download the block chain - stable wallet and no issues
Transferred all my mint so I have another 20 days wait to start low power minting.  Cool

Glad to see the price improve  Wink

Comkort is actually doing a fair job of notifying depositors to remove their coins and giving enough time to do so. The scamming exchanges actually started with MtGox back in '13...

I don't see any reason why you shouldn't. Wink

You can speed up the syncing by manually downloading the blockchain.

You should - couple of questions: Do you have the latest qt? If not, get it here -> http://www.mintcoinofficial.com/
If you're not running the latest version, you may have some trouble syncing.

If there is a discrepancy after your wallet is fully synced, back up your wallet.dat somewhere safe, and run a checkwallet then repairwallet - and if that doesn't work, follow with salvagewallet.

But - wait till it's synced before running any of those.

Good luck, and post again if you need any help - we're always glad to help!  Smiley

I found using the reindex and rescan flags solved the missing coins problem for me in wallets for other coins. Mintcoin probably supports those flags too and they could be worth trying if all else fails.

I won't be worried, it happens everytime you are syncing from a long way back. Just wait till it syncs, If problem is still around try what others have suggested.

Just wait for it to sync. Then all your coins will show up, and you will probably start minting shortly after you are synced. Should be a nice chunk if you have waited 6 months.

I think we need to move to POS 2.0 as soon as we find a developer. It will help with the staking as you will only earn interest if you have your wallet online all the time. Right now we have 2-3% staking with occasional spikes to 10-15% when people open wallets to earn their coins. This is bad for n/w security. You can fork the chain with only 5% of coins staking.

Haven't had any issues so far...

The 2-3% staking is just because not everyone can mint all the time. You have to wait 20 days, which is actually really good for security.  I wouldn't change it unless there is a proven flaw. The other thing is that, if some had enough to do that it would be irrational to attempt. It pays to secure the network. Also, you already have to be online to mint.

Its not about issues with minting. The problem is when there is only 2-3% mint staking, it is like having very little hashrate with POW. If anyone can get more mint that 2-3% and start staking with considerable weight, not only is there a chance of forking the chain but to mount a 51% like attack if you gain enough weight. These concerns were raised with Blackcoin & Vericoin when some people hacked an exchange and stole a big percent of coins. They could have potentially used it to attack the network. When your wallet is online, even if you are not generating blocks, total network weight is higher and it is hard to attack/fork the network. It is like mining, more miners there are the better, even if not everyone is generating blocks. Right now people are getting rewards even if they are not securing the network. They just come online every 20 days to get rewards. This was one of the design flaw with original POS which assumed people will be honest, but you have to force them to be honest unfortunately Sad . Read the POS 2.0 whitepaper here.
