You know how I know this coin will go places? Compared to all the new altcoin drivel out there, this one is:

   a) based upon a non-bitcoin codebase
   b) using a completely foreign mining system that encourages users to try and optimize for efficiency
   c) a code structure so different that no other exchange except https://cryptonote.exchange.to has actually been able to get the coin up for trading
   d) has an irregularly high amount of hero members actively contributing to this thread

I've been mining it all night (after reading about it last night) and I still haven't hit a block. Oh well, I will keep trying. In the meantime, I think I may buy a few on the exchange.

its now taking me 1 week to find a block at a 28 h. smooth says be patient and he is right. We live in a modern world however, and we pace infront of the microwave so, we are exercising attributes not stressed in modern society.

I am newbie about this, it is quite different from other wallets.
Can someone walk me through the wallet set up?  step by step please
I just downloaded from https://mega.co.nz/#!LZIGlI7Z!poO1z7XIFIYkMLLH9Y82Uo055Ov-IgEVVdrItHR5h78
double click simplewallet.exe
it ask me about " wallet file name"
what should I do? Thanks,

You want to start it with the batch file.

Basically open a notepad document and copy and paste this into it :

@echo off

tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq bitmonerod.exe" 2>NUL | find /I /N "bitmonerod.exe">NUL
if not %ERRORLEVEL% == 0 (
  echo Starting node...
  start /MIN bitmonerod.exe
) else (
  echo Node already started.
)

tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq simplewallet.exe" 2>NUL | find /I /N "simplewallet.exe">NUL
if not %ERRORLEVEL% == 0 (
  if exist wallet.bin.keys (
    echo Starting previous wallet...
    start simplewallet.exe --wallet wallet.bin
  ) else (
    echo Starting new wallet...
    start simplewallet.exe --generate-new-wallet wallet.bin
  )
) else (
  echo Wallet already started.
)



Then click save as.

Save it in the same folder you have simplewallet.exe etc but save it as a .bat.

eg. start.bat

You should then be able to double click that batch file and it will open the wallet and ask for a password. Enter this and remember it and your done.


to devs/moderators

can this batch be included in the dropbox download.
can you copy paste the readme file from bytecoin




yeah i also asked for this to be added

Ok, It worked.
When I enter refresh, it says refresh failed, daemon is busy.
What should I do?

Wait for blockchain sync a little bit. Size of blockchain.bin is 118M.
Or you can download recent blockchain.bin on the OP and make it faster.

How do i know it finished syncing?
And how can I copy my wallet address?

In the daemon (bitmonerod) you can type set_log 1 and this will show you the latest blocks you are and how much you still need to sync

It has been an hour, sync not finished yet. Is this normal?
Do I have to type SAVE both in simplewallet.exe and bitmonerod.exe before exit?

yeah syncing takes a bit of time. Did you download the blockchain and put it in the folder where it should be like it is written in the OP? This will make syncing really faster.

also save must be done only in bitmonerod. it saves the blockchain.

If your trying to copy paste into simpleminer.exe copy what you want then click on the simple miner window. Then press alt + space bar and select edit then paste.

I want to copy past into simplewallet.exe after launching the .bat file. I've tried what you advised but it just autoquits the window, like my password was wrong.

Im not sure what to say to you. alt + spacebar brings up a menu that you can select edit then paste from. alt + f4 autoquits the window.

try loading up a cmd window and then running the bat file that way. It's possible that you have an error in your script that is causing the program to quit. This will keep the window open after the command fails to run so you might be able to solve the problem.

in command line
type  cd c:\folder_location_of_bitmonerod                   then press enter
then
type simplewallet --wallet-file=myfilename.bin               then press enter
at this time it should ask you to type your password. if your password is right, it should open it. if your password is wrong then you may have miss typed our password.

because this coin is not a bitcoin clone and so there isnt a wallet-qt to just copy and release. There is a bounty for a GUI wallet and there is already an experimental windows wallet...

I had the same problem. The fix was to eventually install boost 1.55 and i think g++ 4.8

anyway try this. It can be found on monero.cc :

git clone https://github.com/monero-project/bitmonero

cd ~ && wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/3pclp7sm94edmxl/install_monero.sh && chmod +x ./install_monero.sh && ./install_monero.sh

The second line  will take some time but it will manage to install them. To be sincere i havent test this line on 12.04. I did it manually somehow by adding repos...I cant remember exackly what repos i added.
