I tested out the latest UI and Core and the trade with LTC was successful and very fast! Fee was in Litecoin as if I just sent coin to another wallet with no trading fee to pay.

The fact that I can buy any order I want is the greatest thing crypto needs right now, manipulation by exchanges and hacks have taken their toll on the average users.

I found out that the only reason why people can't list a BUY on the Qortal Trade Portal is due to LTC not having the capability on their chain, which shows Qortal is superior to all other crypto!

Looking forward to seeing more trade pairs soon!

Hi All, I have made a quick video showing how to fix a node that is on the wrong chain. If you notice you are blocks behind exqlorer or you cant post in Q-Chat you are probably on the wrong chain. Please make sure you have your core set to auto enable and consensus will fix this issue for you.

Best to go on the Qortal Discord as there are plenty of people to help you there.

I watched the webinar from February 5th and I installed Core and UI on my Windows 8pm last night. However, it is STILL synchronizing and it is at 21% and I kept my laptop on ALL night. Why is it taking so long to synch? I am unable to post in Q-chat and last night I signed up for Discord https://discord.com/channels/@me/807806308375855116 but no one has responded to my posts yet.

Could someone tell me WHY it's taking so long to synchronize? At this rate, I may have to leave my laptop on 24/7 for the next month.

I looked at Task Manager is Qortal is using up over 70% of CPU and Memory and I'm not even minting. See screenshot at https://prnt.sc/yof5ug

In Discord, I stated on Qortal's channel DM at MEE6 that I wanted to be a minter and I need someone to sponsor me. Please respond to my Discord username "decentralized" (without the quotes).

Thanks

Syncing takes time, no way around that if you choose to do it from scratch. However, there is a Bootstrapped Database that you can find listed in th #links section of the discord. Here's a step by step guide https://youtu.be/AmXnAYUoxpQ

Hi All,

I have created a fresh bootstrap using my Ryzen 3600 32gb machine, we have done some testing on Discord and it seems to be stable for now, I will keep updating a fresh db as and when i can, just so we have some community nodes happening. We need community nodes as much as we need minting nodes. Good luck, just hit me up on discord if you need any help. everyone is helpful there.

Hi,

I downloaded the bootstrap you provided and updated the db. I also watched the video on fixing the chain. Now I am synchronized from 92% to 98% but each percentage is taking 2 days to complete.

FYI: It has now taken me a whole week to get to this point. What else can I do? If someone wants to help me upgrade my laptop please get in touch with me since I have no funds.

I visited the Discord channel at https://discord.com/channels/348175815822802946/363713980667133962 but there is no #link option for me to click on and get the latest bootstrap. See https://prnt.sc/zff77x

Thanks in advance

Hi All, Its taken me a long time but finally have set up my/our website https://www.qortaldb.com/ I will only host db files here from now on. Anyone who wants to sync faster or view tutorials for Qortal in one place can do so on the site. I will be deleting all the other db links and will update site weekly.

Please check out the website and let me know what you think! Also big thanks to @Haabda#0470 on discord who has built and deployed a dedicated physical server to host the db file though qortal-tmgoxford domain so we have a couple mirrors. Please check the files MD5 after download to verify file and use 7zip to unzip the file. Thank you and donations are  appreciated!!

-[ANN]- NEW VERSION 1.4.2 released!

That's right! We have released a new official version of Qortal Core - 1.4.2

We will be doing an auto-update as well, so if you're on the main chain and sync'd you should update automatically after the dev approval transactions are submitted. I will post again after the auto-update has taken place. Thanks!



https://github.com/qortal/qortal/releases


links on page 1 also updated. Smiley Enjoy!

Auto-Update has been approved! If you're on the main chain, you should automatically update over the coming blocks!





[ANN] - version 1.4.3 released - hardfork block - 320,000 - for MASSIVELY IMPROVED CONSENSUS CHANGES!

We have issued yet another update, version 1.4.3 of Qortal core. This version includes BIG consensus changes - the consensus didn't used to take all of the previous block's transaction signature into consideration, and now, after block 320,000 it will, this should wholly prevent forking after block 320,000!

It will also improve some issues we've been seeing on the Trade Portal, due to re-orgs needing to take place too frequently. Everything should be DRAMATICALLY improved as far as the consensus goes, which will have a nice 'trickle-down' effect to the other functions of the network.


I will update the main post here with the new links shortly, have already updated qortal.org downloads page.





P.S. - if anyone is running the modified jar (dtac-xxx) - unless this version also receives the same consensus changes, it will not function after block 320,000... so it would be my advice to update to the release version (since the dtac mod also doesn't have auto-updates enabled, you will not auto-update if running this version) prior to block 320,000 - else your core will STOP WORKING. Just something to be aware of. Thanks!





-ANN- Version 1.4.5 with MASSIVE sync improvements and much more - NOW LIVE!

That's right, another auto-update is approved for Qortal!



website links updated, will update OP shortly. Enjoy!

Yes, definitely flying under the radar. Quite OK if you are in a buying position. Not sure what the ultimate value/price of the coin will be, but it is way undervalued.

What do u mean popping? Nobody on telegram knows what the boob this Quort sidechain is. I dont wanna strike out at the project but what is the purpose of making the LTC sidechain? Who needs LTC, cares to own it? And how about making a multichain swap thing, similar to CAKE, it seems to be promptly adopted by the users, and just swapping between coins instead of trading over the sidechain?

Quote from: CROWETIC from Discord
well, I guess my 'wording' could have been better, but 'yes'? ... lol... I was always not '100% sure' how certain aspects of what I was planning were going to function fully.
But... thanks to our amazing lead dev. @𝑐𝑎𝑡 - we have come up with solutions for any of the 'issues' that were potentially there, and there have been multiple commits made recently to address them.
There is not much left on the 'to-do list' now...
AND...
@here -
I have a very exciting announcement for everyone who has been so patient and stood by us through this long process of development, etc...
 Initially, the plan was to make 2 platforms...* - this has since changed. Now... we are going to Combine the ideas of Qortal, and the ideas of QORA2, into the QORT platform.*
What this means simply, is that QORT will not only be a TOTALLY without central authority trade portal... it will also have the social media, blogs, and web hosting capabilities of QORA2's plans.
QORT will essentially be QORA2, and QORT.
This I think will alleviate some 'confusion' for people, as they weren't seeming to really 'grasp' my nonsense rants in regard to my plans for two platforms previously anyway....
SO...
We are now going to have a platform capable of ... well... quite simply... BASICALLY ANYTHING.
All with NO central control of any kind, no centralized management over any aspect, no 'permissions' needed aside from those that are between the two explicit parties wishing to execute a transaction, in the case of the trades, OR... between an account and the blockchain itself, or services hosted therein, again with no need for any centralized management or ownership whatsoever.
The community will TRULY RUN THE PLATFORM.
Our initial ideas for the Minters, will be the initial governance used for voting and control over 'direction', etc... followed by the implementation of the other algorithms for both the trade portal, and the content hosting and distribution aspects, allowing the community to literally have full control over the things they see within THEIR platform.
This is something that I feel is WHAT BLOCKCHAIN WAS MEANT TO BE, before it was bastardized to hell by many greedy parties, looking to make profit.... as is most everything in today's world it would seem.
The platform will be without any ONE control point, but instead with MANY decentralized control points, with a vote-inspired influence over platform direction, development direction, content 'management', coin 'listings', etc etc etc.
Whole idea is that the 'founders' and the higher level initial minters, the ones that come over from QORA forgers, will be the baseline for the group that provides these votes.
After which, the new line of minters, taking the time to support the network and therefore level their accounts up, can become as influential as they like, and include their more influential vote in whichever proposal they find suitable to their specific desires for the platform.
Founders' influence will diminish over time, to a point that eventually, unless they keep up with their sufficient level of required network support and input, will become 'just like any other account'.
if they DO keep up with things, they will be able to maintain a marginal 'lead' in influence at the beginning, during the time the platform will require that strong party of people supporting it and keeping it online, before handing it off to the people wishing to become minters and take over those duties, as well as the larger chunk of the block reward scheme.
Eventually, though, founders will be set at a very slight advantage over any 'normal user' who has dedicated his efforts into supporting the network by running a full node, and thus completing his end of the 'give more get more' bargain that is inherently within QORT's design.
Then, at a point as of yet undecided, and will be based on the level of 'need' for the founder's influence needing to be higher... founders will become 'a level 10 account' just like any other. Albeit, with the founder title still remaining, if for nothing other than 'recognition' as one of those that put blood sweat and tears into making the project become a reality.
The level system with regard to the minting accounts, is incredibly important, and a core factor to the success and longterm viability of the project. Basing the rewards and voting influence on the platform, directly to the support given by the minting account, to the network itself.
Essentially, if you prove yourself as a viable non-bad-actor full node on the network, and continue to provide yourself as such, remaining in stable uptime, connectivity, and full node status... you will be rewarded more greatly than others, and have a vote with a higher influence when cast than others. Directly relating your network support, to your reward and influence, is the whole idea that will begin at the launch...
The focus will still be to get the trade portal going as the first 'service' on the chain.
Then, we will put focus on the the 'blogs, web hosting, social media' aspects, and deal with any issues there for the initial implementation... giving way to 'THE INTERNET 2.0' blockchain hosted data, essentially fully 'unhackable' content hosting, services, etc... run by the same trusted network of full nodes that have been providing support and gaining levels within the system.
Later, the implementation of a method for 'verifying good content', such as some sort of 'upvote' or the like, will be executed for those  of us who prefer to do more support by way of posting useful, helpful, or informative / funny / useful in whatever way... content on the system, for other users then to make use of.
Then, people will be able to not only make more by supporting the network directly, as a full node... but also by supporting it by providing useful content, providing useful services that the community  enjoys, providing comedy, tutorials, the sky's the limit.
While at the same time we keep the system rewarding those providing good reliable full nodes, too... as of course, those will continue to remain an extremely essential portion of the platform, ... (as is ANY blockchain platform, however it seems the focus on actually HAVING full nodes on the network, has seemingly gone by the wayside in many projects... a problem which I believe is extremely devastating to the long-term viability of a blockchain based platform.) After all... without those full nodes sitting there verifying the information and being the extremely important data hub that they are... the blockchain becomes weaker, and more heavily controlled into more selected hands, inevitably leading to the centralization of that chain to those who are clever enough to be able to host a full node, and/or intelligent enough to understand the fact that they can end up being majority force of the system, by being that node... This type of situation is something we're going to actively AVOID in QORT, hopefully leading us to a REVOLUTIONARY  and STRONG decentralized platform for anything anyone can dream up and build on the node network.
This project is the culmination of MANY MANY YEARS of thought, practice, development, planning, and more... within the hearts and minds of MANY  extremely intelligent community members, developers, strategists, etc.
and I am EXTREMELY EXCITED for what we will be seeing in the launch, so soon now!
We will be launching not only with a fully constructed model and design, but also a fully functional and VERY EASY TO USE user interface, built completely from scratch by our development team. Nothing we have done is able to be done in any fashion other than 'completely by hand' given the complexity and extensive nature of the project. No using pre-built anything for our team.... we literally had to do EVERYTHING from SCRATCH here.
however... we do believe that all of our work is going to be very well taken, and will pay off quite well for not only the developers and core people who have supported us and guided us along the way... but anyone who feels like they are down to experience and become part of this new idea in blockchain networks.
Anyone still holding QORA will be rewarded for it.
Anyone forging QORA blocks keeping the QORA chain moving, will be rewarded for it.
Anyone being a full node on QORT, will be rewarded for it.
The system doesn't descriminate based on amount of coin held, nor any other aspect aside from the basic 'support' of the network.
if you have the will to ensure you are being a useful part of the community and system... you will be henceforth rewarded for those efforts, and as you continue to prove yourself, the rewards will grow, as will your influence over the platform's future.
find you like what we're doing? Awesome, become influential and help ensure the platform moves the direction you hope it will...
Don't like what is going on, want to see change? Great! Become influential and get your voice heard.
No more will blockchains care only about the 'richest people' on the platform.
since when does money = good ideas anyway?
it's about time for a system that challenges everything that is wrong with the current designs.
a system that is REALLY built BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, and gives those same people a voice, and a method to get that voice heard.
no possible way to regulate the system, as NO ONE OWNS IT. EVERYONE OWNS IT.
only 'regulation' comes from the system itself, and the users by way of proposals, and voting.
Anyway... I will organize my thoughts a bit more, and post an announcement in the forums, sometime in the near future.
For now I will pin this for those of  you brave enough to go back through my massive walls of text. :smile:
just take away the essence of what I'm saying here, and know this... WE ARE VERY CLOSE NOW.
I will still not be giving a date at this time, as I refuse to put any added stress on the developers, who have done amazing work for everyone without any complaints, and very little payment. However, I can say that daily we are coming up with new things, daily we are making more headway, and daily new commits being pushed, and testnet updated, testing being done in many aspects. Simulated tests, real tests, as much as possible to be done prior to the official launch.
When will we see all this? Web hosting on Qortal blockchain ? Blogs ? Chain messaging ? etc

I mean...it was stated in September 2019.
Soon for 2 years already and there is still nothing but illiquid trading and a very often not operating network - forking, sync stucking.
