I would run such a service with a fair fee or even with no fee. I just need an NodeJS-coder to port/code it.
Like I said I have the shapeshift.io source code. Its working for BTC<->LTC, I need an coder to make it work for Monero.

All the rest to run the proejct I have (Monero domains, marketing know-how, servers, experience running hidden services, ...).

Obvious if choosen to run with small, fair fee, I would split earned fees with coder who made it work.

Thanks for the offer.

I was hoping that someone in an official capacity could update the blockchain download link so it's not so far behind.  It's little things like that will drive you crazy.  If you're going to link the blockchain at least update it periodically.

Windows version

I don't believe it's getting updated till the new DB is released soon®

The format is not portable. So either we want
  • a portable database format
  • a converter commandline tool
  • an export/import function in the daemon for a monero-only, specific asccii dump

For those who are trying out the DB version on HDD (not SSD), I've made a small tweak to the code that massively improves HDD performance.

On bitmonero/src/cryptonote_core/BlockchainDB_impl/db_lmdb.cpp, change line 727 from:
Code:
if (auto result = mdb_env_open(m_env, filename.c_str(), 0, 0664))
to:
Code:
if (auto result = mdb_env_open(m_env, filename.c_str(), MDB_MAPASYNC | MDB_WRITEMAP, 0664))

I'm not sure whether it may have some implications like corrupted data on crash or something, but I've tested killing the daemon while syncing, and starting it up again, and it continued without any trouble from where it left before killing it.

The only side-effect I've noticed so far, is that it instantly allocates 16GB to data.mdb, but it makes it incredibly faster.

So, if you want to try it out, do it at your own risk Smiley

Cheers!

It isn't complicated.  Just update the file.  It has nothing to do with the future database.  The link to the current blockchain is too old.

I remember smooth saying it was on purpose.

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

is your signature not marketing ?  Smiley

Yeah... Smiley
But I mean, we're very restraint in general. Just because it's not the time, or just because some in the community are involved in things that might help to market it indirectly, or on a longer term. I'm really glad we're not on the usual "heavy shiny promises marketing" crappy road most altcoins take right from the beginning. But I wonder if we're not too much the other extreme...  Tongue
It's no good to have only geek/engineer/scientists in a team for instance, they tend to assume a superior tech *must* win in the long run, and can't figure out that a different outcome is actually possible.

I'm partly kidding, I actually don't think we're being "so smart that we are completely counter productive", but nevertheless I think there is room for thoughts.


i agree, if this is the best anon technology someone needs to tell the world or we will be fighting the coin who does and they will be bitcoin to our Mooncoin because they have got out there and got the network and the uses sown up.

A friendly wallet is just something nice and easy to link to I think for a toe in the water to a new user.

Why?

I think it might have been around the checkpointing and at the time defending the attacks we were having

The Windows 64bit blockchain.bin  ( http://monero.cc/downloads/blockchain/win/blockchain.bin )  is 44 days old, so much for "always updated and current"...

My hope is that they plan to bring to life the new type of blockchain quite soon.
Maybe that's the reason?

There are two reasons. One is that we froze the blockchain download after the first attack to maintain a constant verifiable hash. The second is the new self-verifying download format you mention being almost done.

For now you if you download the file you will need to sync up 1-2 months of blocks using the normal mechanism.

What was said in the previous post. Also, we'll probably update it when we finally get the new Windows binaries ready.

I suggest as marketing activity:  that (all) Monero supporters with account status "Sr. Member" or higher ("Hero Members", "Legendary") set an Monero realated "Personal Text" of their choice, as decent advertising.

Like saddambitcoin https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=53193 and I have.

I am sure it would improve Moneros image and publicity on this board very much, if hero members like e.g. "binaryFate" or "nioc" would have/use an Monero "Personal Text" tagline.   

Hero members and legendardy members are respected and trusted, their positive perceived image would transfer to Moneros brand image (and increase publicity).

I'm not sure whether it may have some implications like corrupted data on crash or something, but I've tested killing the daemon while syncing, and starting it up again, and it continued without any trouble from where it left before killing it.

Killing the process likely wouldn't cause database corruption with those options, but a system crash or power failure or program error could.

Might be a sparse file, I'm not sure (meaning the unused portions of the file wouldn't actually use disk space).

As marketing it is not meant bitcointalk forum. Here at least the ones that care of altcoins mostly already know of Monero.
For average bitcointalk altcoin user. current database and simple wallet or unofficial GUI is good enough. and if they would want would already have some Moneros.
But other crypto sites, or just technology sites, or just everywhere they dont. Few coins made it well in that direction.
Doge and Apple Byte  lately did it well. Probably few pump and dump coins did some marketing also. Also Darkcoin is quite known. But big majority of coins live just here on this forum and few exchanges.
