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.

A is the number of coins times 1012

Someone should make blockchain in db format available for download. I'm syncing for 24 hours now and I'm still 150 days behind. i3-550, 4Gb, HDD.

Download blockchain.bin and try the converter. It needs some code tweaks I think (just changing the path) so if you aren't comfortable with that it won't be an option. Obviously before a general release (and likely sooner) that will be cleaned up.

Its not really intended to be a portable format. If users want to share files that's their business I'm not going to tell them not to but it wont be something the project will be doing. We do plan to have a different portable format at some point though.

Thx, I thought so. I had weird results because for some reason I used M = 2^256-1 instead of M = 2^64-1...stupid mistake, lol.

Could you please elaborate, how am I supposed to run it, how much will it take to convert the blockchain?

I see that it doesn't expect any command line options like --help and that it expects the blockchain.bin to be in /home/user/.bitmonero, which isn't a problem.

Looks like that's it I guess. David Latapie reported testing it recently on #monero-dev and it did work for him:

Code:
06:39 <@davidlatapie> 8) copied blockchain.bin to /home/user/.bitmonero with sudo (cp /home/david/.bitmonero/blockchain.bin
                      /home/user/.bitmonero/blockchain.bin)
06:39 <@davidlatapie> 9) started blockchain_converter on the right folder, this time with sudo (blockchain_converter)
06:39 <@davidlatapie> It works. I could sync and refresh and send.
06:39 <@davidlatapie> tl;dr: it seems that even after correcting editing blockchain_converter.cpp, there is still a hardcoded entry for /home/user/.

Okay, I'm running it now. Definitely faster than syncing.

Edit after about an hour: About 15k blocks per hour. Faster than syncing but not a walk in the park either. And @smooth, thanks for the tip.

Sorry w/r/t missive. Fluffypony is have difficulties connecting to the internet and is in another country. A person has been hired to handled missives in the future and soon they should continue to be on time.

Hi guys - just to add that I have had really crummy Internet connectivity (literally been in the desert;) so I wasn't able to update this.

We are going to skip this week's Missive and go over to next week's on Monday, as we're struggling with nagging Windows build issues for 0.8.8.5.

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.

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?

There is only one error in the load up

I posted this w/ my sol'n last week .. I think you have the same thing I did.

It doesn't make the wallet.bin file automatically when you restore from keys. When you get to the error window, type save and exit (or just exit?) and it should make your wallet file from your keys file (create a 1kb file called 'wallet1' or 'wallet1.bin', not 'wallet1.bin.keys'. It worked normal for me after that.

Add: I don't think I had this: 2014-Nov-13 16:47:06.561494 ERROR c:\users\ric_000\desktop\bitmonero\src\p2p\net_node.inl:311 UPNP_AddPortMapping failed.

Either way, going by your folder picture, you're missing a file.

And it's only at the end of fall, that we discover it was naught but the wind that knew when one particular leaf was to fall from one particular tree, only to land in one distinct spot .. to be left for an eternity, and waste its time in a wait sublime. C0A2A1C4

Thanks a million! It worked.

I just typed save and then exit within simplewallet and then reopened it and it worked like normal. Refreshing now as normal.

Shoot me your monero address, I'll send over a little token of thanks.

Someone should make blockchain in db format available for download. I'm syncing for 24 hours now and I'm still 150 days behind. i3-550, 4Gb, HDD.

In case anyone wants the blockchain in DB format, I've uploaded it to https://mega.co.nz/#!HJATCCyA!VICGBgoZSn_BRrxEhUD3EQLGUO7pon3o27cp25SmwWE

I also can confirm that the db version of the daemon works. The blockchain converter is fast only if you have an SSD and plenty of RAM.

Also, for people with HDD, I think that mounting your home partition with "nobarrier" option helps to improve performance.

I would also suggest that your password be longer than 1 character in length. Right now if anyone gets ahold of your wallet file it would take less than 1 second for a computer to have access to all of your coins.

Especially if you don't have full hard drive encryption, anyone can easily grab your wallet files if they have physical access to the machine in less than 5 minutes.

nice catch lyth0s!

The password for my main wallet is 7 words from the diceware word list, of course randomly generated.

Especially if you don't have full hard drive encryption, anyone can easily grab your wallet files if they have physical access to the machine in less than 5 minutes.

And since we are advising, I would suggest typing the command seed at the wallet a writing down the word seed. This can be used to restore your wallet using the --restore-deterministic-wallet option, so no need to fret about corrupted dat files. Cheesy  I think this is one of the most undervalued feature added to a cryptonote coin.

PS: Keep in mind that this needs different kind of measures to keep safe than a wallet file.Have special care not to post a screenshot of your wallet with the words in it. Grin

I have a Monero wallet with private key, but I do not want to wait for bitmonerod to sync.

Is there any web-wallet or similar where I can import the private key?

Currently there is no webwallet avaible yet, but there are rumours that one is comming soon. This is just rumours and not confirmed unfortunately.

Privacy matters, use Monero - A true untraceable cryptocurrency
