Can somebody here give the pros and the cons of Monero.  Darkcoin vs Monero please.

Pros:
-Monero has its privacy and anonymous features baked right into the protocol (CryptoNote), whereas Darkcoin relies on centralized masternodes in order to obfuscate transactions.

Cons:
-Cryptonote is a completely new protocol and development is in early stages. Developers have been working on implementing a database for the blockchain (almost done), and an official GUI.  Darkcoin gets the benefit of relying on the Satoshi codebase and has the first mover advantage in the anonymous coin market.

Darkcoin gets the benefit of relying on the Satoshi codebase and has the first mover advantage in the anonymous coin market.


DRK:
 - instamine (with changed mining reward because of a "bug" after it)
 - coinjoin sold as anon (which does not really provide anonymity)
 - bitcoin derieved (no arbitary data per transaction, no dynamic block sizes)
 - masternodes which provide anonymity and an easy attack vector for govs (eg by watching traffic)
 - every release seems to have a bug (this time its with darksend not providing anon because of fees which leaks data)
 - masternode payments not sustainable in the future (someone made a node calculation...but i cant find it right now.. sorry)
 - thinking about going pos right now (ugh... i never thought they would do THAT, but obviously the masternode owners dont like miners)
 - not a tech aware community... they like price and nothing more. at least for me this is a no-go.

i really dont see ANY reason for darkcoin Wink

Is there anything stopping CryptoNote blockchains from storing information the same way Bitcoin 2.0 projects depend on the Bitcoin blockchain do?

No, but curious whether you think that is a good thing or a bad thing.

I can confirm that upping my virtual memory file to 6 GB from 4GB greatly improved my shitty laptop's performance while running bitmonerod.

Using my wallet I only see a "tx" which I assume is a transaction id and I have a "global index". But I don't see a transaction hash or block height or any other info. When I go to try to see the details of it on a blockchain explorer nothing comes up

I'm using this block explorer: http://chainradar.com/xmr/blocks?

If I want to lookup any details (IE what block height was my tx in) how do I do that with the info the monero wallet gives me?

I think Monero (XMR) is very interesting.

Please help I can't restore my wallet from the keys (32bit) after downloading block chain from firstpage onto new 64bit pc,
I done it before without issue, but now I getting this error.

I'm able to create and sync new wallets, but can't restore mine.

Any ideas please? could it be due to blockchain download from first page.

From the image you posted, it looks like the wallet is restored just fine and the problem is only with the daemon. You can relax, your coins are safe.  Grin

Maybe someone more knowledgeable can help you with getting bitmonerod up and running.

Yeah, there should be someone who keeps everything up to date.
monero.cc needs much more information about the forum etc.

Good idea to put website on github. Several people already proposed some help, let them create PR!
I don't think we need to wait DB+GUI to have a decent website. (I like the current 90's style, but admittedly not very catchy).
At least it would be nice to have updated info there.

Monero's privacy and therefore fungibility are MUCH stronger than Bitcoin's. 
This makes Monero a better candidate to deserve the term "digital cash".

I certainly hope so. It's odd that I can create a new wallet though, a new wallet syncs with bitmonerod.

Agree. Maybe daemon not synced yet, or busy saving the blockchain? Looks like some errors in the daemon window though. Can you see if there are any other errors reported in your bitmonerod.log file?

I'm looking for a spreadsheet or mathlab/maplesoft/... calculation for "Block reward = (M - A) * 2^-20 * 10^-12". Can somebody point me to one or tell me how to calculate A in atomic units. Thank u.
