Hi,

can you tell me more about your vision, plans, project?

Hello, thank you ~   ...   ^ ^~



first:
I'm here in Taiwan, I want trying to find a developer in Taiwan!
Development will to make MINTcoin more efficient (e.g: synchronous speed of blockchain), and have more advanced features!!
If I can find the developer, then I can start planning the development roadmap!!!

second:
I will to run a "shopping website" for the world, only receive "MINTcoin", and all goods are "98% OFF!!!!!!!!!" ...
"my <shopping website>" will to make this world a better place, and will to make "MINTcoin's price" to "FLY!!!"!!!!!!!!!


Because of my life experience is "BAD!", so I want to make this world a better place!!!

"My idea(dream)" rely on "MINTcoin's <5% APR(Annual Percentage Rate)>"!!!!!!!!!
I have a lot of MINTcoin(Beyond imagination!), so "my <5% APR(Annual Percentage Rate)>" just is "<POWER!!!!!!!!!>" for "MINTcoin's Future" and me ...
but ......
now the MINTcoin's price is too low, so now I can not achieve "my idea(dream)" .........   ...   >"<


Currently I am working hard to raise funds for setting up a company ...
hope at least "$USD. 30,000+" financing ......
now the main purpose is to "develop MINTcoin!!!!!!!!!"!!!!!!!!!

You state in your blog :
07. Mintcoin has no further room to fall hence the only way is up! As the only linkage is still Mint/BTC we are resting on the giant BTC price.

Just so you are aware, that is not true. Many coins lose their bitcoin market and as such their is no real floor to how low your price can go.

I am not saying that is going to happen to your coin, but it can go lower, you should prepare for that possibility.

Good Luck.

Just recently returned to this coin and to my surprise, it was still somewhat active.

I'm in no way an expert in understanding how most of the things under the hood works, and I found it extremely difficult to actually get my wallet back to sync. Tried the bootstrap.dat but that would take weeks before it caught up. Re-syncing from scratch would take even longer.

After a while, I then came across the site CryptoChainer - a site that has blockchains for a vast variety of coins, and to my luck, they had a recent snapshot for the Mintcoin blockchain as well. Wohoo ... now I only needed to figure out how to actually use it. Turned out it was easier that I dared hope for.

So in case others want to "re-enter" this coin and find themselves in the same situation as me, here's a really quick step by step guide for Windows:
1: First off, download (and install) the wallet from the http://www.mintcoinofficial.com/
2: Start the wallet/program
3: Exit the wallet/program again (don't know if this start/stop is needed, but that's how I did it anyways)
4: Open the folder C:\Users\*YOURNAME*\AppData\Roaming\MintCoin\
5: Delete all files and folders in this dir except wallet.dat (if this wallet.dat is your backed up wallet)
6: Go to http://cryptochainer.com/dir/?page_id=881 and locate the MintCoin blockchain and click the "MintCoin blockchain"-button to start downloading the blockchain
7: Unzip the file in the MintCoin-folder (from step 4)
8: Copy your wallet.dat into the MintCoin-folder (from step 4)
9: Start the MintCoin application

The wallet will now take a while to lauch while writing something down the lines of "Rescanning" or something like that. When it launches, you'll be a day or two behind at most, and that should be fairly fast to sync up.

So yeah - don't know if this helps anyone, but I sure would have wanted exactly this help from some forum, so at least it's here now. Who knows if I'll be needing it myself in a couple of years when I forgot all about it again Cheesy

Cheers

Yeah Well. That kinda illustrates my problem quite good, actually ;-)

When I return to this forum in two years, all I'll be able to find is a link to a zipped file containing a two year old dump.

Linking to a page that lists a "somewhat recent" dump will probably be the better option of the two. ;-)

It seems that MINT was really the first "Coin Hodlers Club" way before that was even a thing.
Max Lee made his phrase "Just Hodl" and his chaincoin hodl club famous on youtube this year.
(hey, I am a fan & use a fidget spinner now to get "rich" - - by not selling).

We need to think about all the great ways we HODL our MINT and play off of that.
"MINT - The Original Way To HODL"
"HODL A Bag of MINT Today" For Seven Rotations Of The Sun!

Anyway, I'm here to Hodl... & help if possible.

My MINT wallet has been a pisser all year. It won't sync because it wont stop pumping in new rewards from the network long enough to do any syncing. Then any new coins get rejected as orphans because I'm not synced. I can't leave it on because it uses so much resource on my CPU that it overheats and shuts down my computer. Overall a bad experience - and it should not start minting before sync is finnished. The network must be making a zillion transactions that are just a waste.

I had hoped that a better solution/wallet would come. Now I am ready to just wipe out this wallet and load last year's version because at least it functioned. Our latest Dev guy has moved on an left a mess here. I did learn that there was a link on his personal website where he was asking for donations/funding toward MINT development. No hard feelings - I'm sure there was time invested and problems solved, but what is that called when you create problems and then want credit for fixing them?

Think about this. A lot of brand new hot coins are going to fail soon because they can't find DEV talent either.
At least this coin has some good history and lots of hardened investors - we just need to phoenix out of the fires..

Solution:  Download the full blockchain or use the snapshot and make sure your chain is fully updated BEFORE you unlock your wallet for minting.

Thanks for this comment Minty. It worked as a "swift kick of understanding". I have been trying since this wallet version rolled out to shut off minting so the sync-up would happen. You made me realize my mistake - not having my wallet encrypted. This was the first wallet I ever downloaded & I did neglect to do it even though I should know better. In most wallets using encryption is an option, with this version it helps solve the minting on/off problem.

When we encrypt our wallets it will default to a locked position (minting off), after you get synced-up just unlock as Minty instructs.

So now I am good, got the current version synced by first encrypting, then downloading the snapshot, syncing up, and then unlocking the minting feature to get my green coins flowing in. Woo-Hoo
Wallet stayed focused on downloading blocks until synced, CPU staying cool enough to run 24/7 - thanks again!
