That's wrong.

Quote from: bee7
GetLastBlockIndex(pindexBest, false) returns the pindex of the last PoW block, not of the last  PoS block. Thus, the emission would be linear over time, not declining with time as it claimed to be in the coin specs.

Mintcoin was advertised as 20% for the first year.  While GetLastBlockIndex was returning the index of the last PoS block it was still 20%.  The only problem was when the wallets tried to transition to 15%.  The minting code was still trying to do 20% and the verification code was expecting 15%.
There was also an off by one, as you said.  The generation needed an Index+1 to get it into the 15% range.
Again there were never two chains so no fork.

Updated the buntu 64 bit wallet. Flashed it up. Synced up nicely. All seems normal. Glad I did not have to download blockchain again.

That was a fast fix! Thanks.

Hey guys, I am re-downloading everything from scratch and am about 45% done syncing. But I just had some questions, looking at my Mintcoin folder, what do the db.log and debug.log files do? Also what is the database folder and txleveldb folder for? What is the purpose of these files? Screenshot below. Thanks!

I get that the early change to 15% seems normal to coders/programmers but to investors I can deff see why they'd have a legitimate reasons to be upset... most people/investors think/plan in time not blocks passed and could feel like they've been wronged since they were told a year and were planning for a year. If the change happens early they will be "butt hurt" about it and could cause a bunch of distrust and dumping. they'll just see it as losing out on 5% for 3 months.

just my thoughts about it

was just looking at my transactions, my first deposit of mint was on 2/21/2014 Wink

On the other-hand it could also cause pumping, as now the coin is less inflationary. So it is a two sided coin.

Technically u are right, but situation is similar.
What is better? A fork or a fallout?  Wink

Cheers,
Ray

The Fact is, that kiklo tried to contact you on 10-11-1014 regarding to that issue.

I have no problem with the reduction to 15%. Only because the last thing we need right now is excessive inflation.

Lets face it. Altcoins are not doing so hot. I'll be happy if Mint survives this holocaust let alone worry about the reduction.

I did not believe it could fall below 5 sats earlier this year, now I too am merely glad it's still surviving after so many other coins have bitten the dust. I say do whatever it takes to keep it around.

Semantics over fork or not , could be said the following ways,
Mintcoin was technically stuck at the fork and unable to continue on by choosing 20% or 15%
(Stuck at the beginning of a possible fork).
Because technically you were forking from 20% to 15% in your chain.
But for those that don't agreed with frozen at a fork  you could also say stuck at the crossroads.

Even other terms could be used , Crashed, Frozen , or Dead in the Water.
Ray provided the info that helped you code a fix, basically choose a path for the chain to continue on instead of being stuck.

 Cool

That helps explains things a bit. Redownloading the blockchain now, oldest block is at 312 days, so that's not too far off.

Can you please change the file description of the wallet download to 1.14.0 on the website? New people will ever be confused when they go to download the wallet from Dropbox for example and it shows version 1.12.0 at the top above and version 1.4.0 below it they are going to think 1.12 is the latest version and be like wtf once they don't mint anything.

Stop Mining.   Start Minting.   Mintcoin  [MINT]

Syncing the blockchain in wallet 1.14 took over 3.5 days.
I fear not many (new) users are willing to invest so much time in getting a wallet to work...

I can confirm that. In my case processing the bootstrap took 74 hours.

There is another way, kiklo uploaded the blockchain files some time age. Then it took my wallet 15 minutes to get full sync.

It was not necessary to download the blockchain from scratch for 1.14.0.

i was only about 20 days behind when I started the new update using the bootstrap and for sure it took way too long (approx 20+ hrs)

too bad theres not a way to do it were the wallet only needs to download the last 100k blocks to sync or something to zip it along... must be annoying for the android wallet
