My wallet is out of sync and struck at block at 1268345 and is 76% done. It's been struck at that block from about last five days.. I have 8 active connections(nodes)as well on my wallet.. I am using mac and wallet version is v1.14.0.0. I also downloaded the lastest wallet v1.17.0.0 but when I open that it says error loading blinded.dat.. Please help

You get that message because version 1.17 needs a complete resync.

I fixed some days ago my somehow corrupted and completely non working wallet on MAC OSX by downloading the latest version again ;
backup your wallet.dat , it is in /Users/»Your Username«/Library/Application Support/MintCoin/ before you fiddle around .

  • I renamed my MintCoin Folder appending to its name anything ,
  • installed the latest wallet app version anew , started it up ,
    and quit it while it was starting to resynch the blockchain from scratch .
  • At that point , the MintCoin Folder was recreated anew and I only had to
    drop the contents in Bootstrap.dat into that fresh MintCoin Folder …
    - it took the Wallet only a few minutes to synch up fully to the last few transactions on the public blockchain .
  • Lastly , drop the latest backup of your wallet.dat into the new MintCoin folder and you are good to Ball .

You need to install the BitTorent Sync client. There is no simple download link to get just the blockchain files.

The upside is the bootstrap file is updated daily and there are no troubles by exceeding the daily download limits @dropbox or other filesharing hosts.

Learn it.
It is really not difficult.
Myself I have installed it yesterday. After first googling a little bit about it, trust-issue solved.
Seems a clever technology.

1 Install the (tiny) download. from getsync
2 (I think you cannot avoid to) confirm that you want to try the full version for x days.
3 Open the browser at www.mintcoinofficial.com -> download wallet -> download bootstrap.dat
4 "External Protocol Request" -> Launch Application
5 (I think) you need to name your own "folder" for others
6 wait 7 hours :-)
7 hovering over "Mintcoin_daily" will tell you how much time to wait.

HTH ;-)

Click on Help > Check Wallet

Also go into the console and type repairwallet

Then restart your wallet

Worked a treat, thank you very much, post up your MINT address

If my assumptions are correct it will have no impact on RAM or on CPU.

Although it hashes the first 60 hashes * the amount of mature unspent outputs you have, those hashes are all destroyed the second the code leaves the scope of CheckKernelStakeHash(), as this is how c++ works.

The current code hashes the first 60 seconds, then hashes timestamp 61 after one second passes, then 62 after two seconds pass, etc. Not 60 hashes each time (or else if it is doing so, it is not designed to be this way).

MINT has a very very old codebase, that hasn't been updated much in terms of efficiency, as well as a huge blockchain. The pool of unspent outputs for the entire network is stored in your RAM, thus this means a large amount of ram for an old chain with lost coins or lots of cold storage outputs. The CPU usage is probably a combination of all these items.
What do you recommend to improve efficiency specifically how to cut back on RAM usage? I've noticed this too that very gradually the RAM usage has tended to rise.

There may be a few areas in the code that have some unpatched memory leaks, but these are fairly small leaks, and the bulk of the RAM usage is not really reversible. Its the fact that there are so many unused outputs in the RAM. So its my opinion that the majority of the RAM consumption will be here to stay, unless you go chain swap which in my opinion should be a last resort reserved for emergencies or disfunctionally large chains.

Just out of curiosity,

Is it possible to make a light version Mintcoin wallet? A wallet version that takes less RAM/CPU even if that means it doesn't stake/mint. Also, does breaking the blockchain into multiple separate files help with RAM usage? Right now my mintcoin blockchain is all in one big file. I am wondering if that has any impact of RAM/CPU. Does anyone else have just one file, or do people have multiple?

See pic below of my Mintcoin Folder with just one blockchain file, and my CPU/RAM usage:

  mintcoin-qt.exe version 1.17


sha1sum blockchain_2015_07_04.7z-backup

Perhaps it wasn't fully synced/downloaded ?
But it wasn't showing a "percentage left" anymore.

And then the sha1sum should differ, right?

Anyways for my next attempt, I'd rather choose a file that stays online longer. Now it is already 5/7/2015. And I'd rather not download a new 1.3GB again.
In the batch file, there is a mentioning of a "weekly update". What is the getsync address of that?
Or doesn't all that matter? New to getsync, sorry.

Thanks for the help!
