I need help.  I just opened my wallet today for minting and noticed that it's not syncing anymore.  Then I saw the mandatory update to 1.7 wallet (i'm on 1.5 now) in OP and need your help.  I'm a tech newb and I'd appreciate if anyone can take me step by step process on how to update wallet.  Safest method will be appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

You need to make sure you can see hidden files and folders on your operating system. then go to your users/appdata/mintcoin folder and backup your wallet.dat somewhere. Then delete all the other files leaving behind only your super important wallet.dat file. Then run the updated mintcoin client.

Yup you should have a mintcoin folder with just your wallet.dat and then run version 1.7

Hey vtbean, I'll do the best I can!

First thing you will want to do is backup your wallet.dat file. Back it up in multiple locations (you should keep it backed up at multiple locations all the time- you only need to reback it up whenever you add a new address to the wallet). You can back it up from within your wallet using file => backup wallet.

Now you will want to  find your "roaming" folder. First, make sure you can see hidden files and folders. Then, to find the "roaming" folder, if you are using windows, search for %appdata% in the search bar on the start tab (I'm not sure how to find it on a mac/linux, but I imagine it is an analogous process). Once you have located your "roaming" folder, locate the "MintCoin" folder within it. Delete everything from this folder except for your wallet.dat file (it would be fine if you did delete it since you backed up the wallet.dat file elsewhere, but there is no need to delete it so don't take the risk).

Now that everything is deleted, except for your wallet.dat file, download and run the new v1.7 wallet. You will need to download the entire blockchain again.

Edit: well that took too long for me to type, looks like others already covered it  Grin

...

I've supported Mintcoin from the start, well from around the 2nd week in anyway.  Smiley

Thanks for the heads up. I'm aware of your support, thank you.

Indeed. I've placed the Mintcoin logo on the home pages of my web based proxy sites:

www.xeronet-proxy.org
www.xeronet-proxy.biz
www.xeronet-proxy.info
www.xeronet-proxy.net
www.xeronet-proxy.com

So, some free advertising! Could use a quality 468x60 banner as I'll be adding a bunch into rotation soon for a few alt. coins.  Grin

This is great, thank you! Somebody get you a banner!

Yes if someone can help create a professional Mintcoin banner for BitcoinFX that would be great!  Thanks for all your support BitcoinFX

yes, but pleas backup your wallet.bat, and then delete alll other files(all the files in users/appdata/mintcoin folder (except wallet.dat) ), otherwise your mintcoin will disappear.

at last, download/run the 1.7 version wallet.

Yep. I am planning and hoping the prices stay at these levels long enough for me to buy ~30,000,000 coins in a few weeks which will generate ~$30 a month at current prices of 15 sats. If more people do the same thing, the price will start really going up and keep rising, and if the coin goes from 15 satoshis to 30 satoshis that is $60 per month, which I think could easily happen. It could even go a lot higher! Mintcoin could make mining obsolete.

I agree completely, I don't think the majority of people have realized the potential of Mint in this sense. Because of the interest you gain, you do not need constant pumping of prices to make a ROI. Which means, you can have a stable price and still make profits. Stability is great for merchants, profits are great for investors. It is a win-win in this sense. I don't see many other coins which offer this scenario (aside from the straight copys of Mint).

Of course once more people catch on to this and the other great features of this coin/community, then like you said the price will increase and the ROI will be even greater Smiley

nice way to look at it ... this concept needs to get out more, maybe a chart with different coin amounts with price at different levels saying how much you make in passive income Smiley

Yes that is a good idea. That's how I always envisioned my investment as well as passive income. A chart would be good to help people visualize and get an idea how great Mintcoin really is

Yes I agree this is important and people are doing a great job of getting new merchants onboard. There's a lot of development and plans for the future going on in the Mintcoin community. If you have any creative ideas as well feel free to share

Total Money Supply is going to be 70,000,000,000

Divide that by 30,000,000

The answer is only 2333.33

It may seem ridiculous at a low price, but this coin is just getting started and 30,000,000 is a huge chunk out of the total money supply.

If you were to place this on the same scale to be equivalent in BTC, buying 30,000,000 Mintcoins is the equivalent to buying 9,000 Bitcoins.

I invest 4.2063 BTC = U$S 1912 = 30000000 mint... =>20% per year = interests U$S 31,86

Really u think that ROI is ridiculous?

Why would integrating a wallet feature create a hard fork? Wallet Control is not part of the algorithm of the coin. HBN was not hard forked for the wallet feature, Tranz added wallet control to newer HBN wallets. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Kergekoin?

Correct. Bitcoin 0.9 also has coin control now. From merge requests i can not see anything which would require hard forking.



Nice! So are you going to do it? I think the community and dev would embrace.

I just finished it and made pull request. It works just beautifully with my Windows wallet, but likely some testing is needed for linux and mac.


If you want to use it before officially confirmed:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ibwj1p88q340tg9/Mintcoin%20with%20CC.zip
Default disclaimer: Im not responsible if you damage your wallet.dat with it. Please be sure you have a backup before overwriting!



I downloaded your version but see no diff in sending coins...do I miss something or need to config something somewhere?
