I have a issue with windows wallet going back and forth from 11 weeks to zero.
11 connections.The wallet has been mining for over 10 hours with a couple of blocks.
Configure files is correct.Catching up processed 2935 of 62,929 established blocks.
Still out of sync.

Thank you for any suggestions on how to fix this issue.

Hi vanessasweet,

I haven't seen that problem before - I can tell you at least that I have version 1.0 and 1.2 of the Heavycoin wallet running on Windows 7 without any problems.

I'll point out your message to the coin devs and see if they have any ideas.

In the mean time, feel free to share any other information that might help figure out what's happening, really anything you can think of would help, some starting questions:

- Which version of the wallet have you installed
- Which version of windows are you running
- Plenty of room left on your C drive?
- did you download from the official site - the download page on either http://heavyco.in/ or http://heavycoin.github.io/download.html
- if there's anything unusual about your computer setup

One thing you could try doing is to take a look at the size of your the heavycoin blockchain you're downloading:

- Go to C:\Users\<YOUR USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Heavycoin
- Right click properties and take a look at "size on disk"
- Give it five minutes, right click and try it again - is the folder any larger?

You could try deleting the C:\Users\<YOUR USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Heavycoin folder then launch the wallet again - that will start downloading the blockchain again from scratch, could be worth a try.

Let us know how you go and any questions feel free to post them.


@smaragda - what happened when you brought this up with the devs? Could you post a link if it's somewhere else on the thread?

What does everyone think of adding an anon feature? I'm not huge on it, but not at all against it - were you thinking of something specific like implementing coinjoin or something else?


Have a good one folks.

Cheers,
M

Whether it works or not but such an anonymity functionality could be an excellent marketing vehicle, I completely agree.

Completely agree anonymity functionality is big in the alt world right now - we can see it of course with what darkcoin is doing - *my understanding* is that darkcoins' Darksend is currently a closed source version of coinjoin introduced by gmaxwell (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=279249.0).

I believe that Darkwallet, when out of alpha/beta will be released as an open source project and should perform most of these functions for us while not being a huge problem for us to customise for HVC - https://darkwallet.unsystem.net/

I really have no idea at the moment though - a really interesting area, but I'm still trying to figure out how it all fits together.

I love crypto because I get to learn something new, I hate crypto because I have to read all of this damn documentation and force myself to understand something new Smiley

My friend who's the main developer of SFMINER (which is a successful mining asic company. Its huge capability scrypt asic has been released to the market and the FPGA of X11, N-factor is close to completing.) told me that the algorithm of HVC is the best and securest for now and it's the only pow algorithm for which SFMINER is not able to design a asic.

Do you have specifics as to why they are unable to design ASIC for Hefty algorithm? Any documentation? Not doubting you, rather just really curious about any details available. Previously Zhpool mentioned they were unsuccessful in their attempts at implementing FPGA for Hefty1 as well.

I really believe the days of cheap HVC are numbered.  Some big buy orders just went up on exchanges, is something up?

Which exchanges?  I checked Cryptsy and there are some buy orders but not that big and I think there has been some accumulation for at least a couple weeks.

My friend from SFMINER (Siver Fish) told me about that. I didn't ask him for the reason for I'm a chemical engineering engineer rather than an IT guy and I can't understand complicated IT theory.
There was a fault in my previous post about the asic. Accurately, My friend told me they are not able to design a FPGA for HVC algorithm.

there is a  private x11 FPGA farm  ,I had seen some photos ,but don't know how to post here.
x13 is another joke ,even x15, x17,

Never buy any ICO altcoin.
Never buy any ASIC altcoin.

HVC is worth 5% of what it was at its peak. In the price chart at Coinmarketcap you can see it has stabilized recently, so  I would say a turn upwards is not that strange an idea: http://coinmarketcap.com/hvc_90.html

If it was easy, everybody would be doing it

I am a newbie,but I want to compile source code of HVC on windows with MinGW,and now I need to compile the boost-1.50,but the doc of build-msw https://github.com/heavycoin/heavycoin/blob/master/doc/build-msw.md says that
1.downloaded boost jam 3.1.18
2.cd \boost-1.50.0-mgw
3.bjam toolset=gcc --build-type=complete stage

,and it's not so clear that I can't build the boost on my computer,
so could someone help to compile the boost,or to give me some steps to do it
Thank you very much

How many new coins are mined daily now for HVC?


Cause with nearly 23 million coins out right now, it should be easy to find coins for sale but that's not the case.

For a week now I've been the top bid and I have barely found 80,000 HVC coins.

That's unusual for a cheap sold off coins with 23 million coins out.

So I'm curious how many new coins are minted daily right now or if maybe a few insiders own most of the coins.  


Thanks!

Hey skiddling,

I can't point you in the right direction, but from personal experience, I've tried to follow linux steps to do something on windows a few times and for me at least, I've always ended up just going to linux at some point where thing weren't playing together nicely.

If you want, you could try playing around with a linux usb install and see if that maybe makes things easier: http://www.linuxliveusb.com/

Hey folks,

I have an idea for a game but I wanted to run it by you guys first as an experiment and get your feedback to see how this works in practice.

I made this: http://heavycoinnews.com/files/wallet.rar

It's an encrypted Heavycoin wallet which contains 1,000HVC.

The passphrase for this wallet is all lowercase and is the answer to this:

"a word that is 45.72 centimeters long"


Around this time tomorrow, if the wallet hasn't been looted, I'm going to send another 1,000HVC to it. If it's sill not looted after that, we'll see what happens.


Big Warning - make sure you have your own wallet backed up before trying to win this
The easiest way to access this wallet and try to loot it is to overwrite your existing wallet file - if you try doing it this way, make sure your own wallet is backed up.

Pretty much all of you are across this - but if you're not sure you're 100% safe here are two options:

1) Back up your wallet again
- after your wallet is backed up, find the Heavycoin blockchain folder on your local drive
- in this folder you'll see wallet.dat - overwrite it with the wallet above
- relaunch the heavycoin client and try to send the 1,000HVC to your own wallet
- If you guess the passphrase correctly, the transaction will be approved and the prize will be sent your own wallet
- to get back to your own wallet, overwrite your backed up version on top of this new one and relaunch the Heavycoin client

2) Copy and paste the Heavycoin blockchain folder to a different location
- once the Heavycoin blockchain folder has been copied to a new location, overwrite the wallet.dat file with the one above
- via command prompt, open heavycoin-qt.exe with the argument -dataDir=C:\Heavycoin (the folder the new wallet file is in) i.e.:
<location of the heavycoin wallet>/heavycoin-qt.exe -dataDir=C:\Heavycoin


Again, this is an experiment and seems to me could be fun, but I don't want to see people lose their HVC stash if they try taking part and accidentally end up killing their own wallets.

Let me know what you think. If you're the one who ends up looting the wallet let us all know so we can talk some more about how this works and if it's worth playing with on a larger scale.

Cheers,
M

I think the risks are high with this. A mistake could cost people a lot (their whole wallet). On the other hand this could be turned into a learning experience for anyone not familiar with backing up their wallet. Additionally might i suggest not overwriting any dat file but rather just changing the name. For example... wallet.dat could be changed to wallet_old.dat

The thought of overwriting a dat file scares me, no matter the precaution taken.  Grin

For windows uses you can just type:
Code:
%appdata%
in the windows search, then into the heavycoin folder.

I completely agree mate - I really like this idea, but I would hate to be responsible for someone losing their wallet accidentally - renaming the wallet.dat file is a great suggestion.

Good idea! Smiley

Pretty easy to solve, but I will leave it up to somebody else Smiley I will PM you, though. Just to know sure Smiley

If it was easy, everybody would be doing it

Don´t get it  Undecided

"a word that is 45.72 centimeters long" = pass-phrase

That's the hint to the pass-phrase to unlock the wallet that has 1000 HVC in it.
