I need some technical help with my Orbitcoin Digital wallet app I downloaded from this forum. It says that it is offline, not connected and I haven't found the option where I can toggle it back online. How do I connect my Orbitcoin digital wallet to the Orbitcoin Network.

It still isn't functioning properly
Add this to your .conf file
addnode=seed0.orbitcoin.org:15298
addnode=seed1.orbitcoin.org:15298


where exactly is the .conf file located
I created a .conf notepad file and placed it inside the data folder and added the two codes

It should be named orbitcoin.conf and placed inside the data subdir, or it won't be picked up. The wallet can learn about new peers from IRC unless you have blocked it.


Today after about 24 hours, the wallet still didn't sync. I will try placing the orbitcoin.conf notepad file with the two add nodes code written on it, in the folder called database inside the folder named data. Yesterday I had it placed just inside the folder named data.

Yes, actually Smiley I have almost forgotten. I've also scheduled a new release with all updates and bug fixes over the last 2+ years.

Orbitcoin v1.6.2.0 has been released.

It's a mandatory update for pools and exchanges addressing a critical vulnerability. There was a bug in block verification code that originated from PPC. It affected only hybrid PoW/PoS coins. It could never make itself to the block chain under normal circumstances. Someone could generate a PoW block with a valid coin base, a valid regular tx, and a rogue coin stake or even a few. The block verification code did not check for such injected coin stakes. What was even worse, it didn't check output values at all. A tx with a million coins output basically out of thin air was perfectly acceptable, though it would be never accepted to a mempool. The attacker had to compose a PoW block, mine it and broadcast to the network.

That's exactly what has happened in block 3237780. 150k coins were generated, 70k were sold on Freiexchange the next day, the rest were dumped recently on the 8th/9th of September crashing the price to 200 sats. The hack has been brought to my attention too late to counter it, even though I have identified the attack vector and patched the vulnerability in just a couple of a hours. It's a very bad idea to roll back such a large part of the block chain, besides the coins have been sold already. Whoever have purchased them at such a low price, well, enjoy them. They are technically valid coins.

Windows and Mac binaries coming.

Exactly.

I've decided to make a couple more small improvements and compile Windows binaries after. It's a matter of a few days.

I'm porting some stuff from PXC to ORB and backward. There will be a new release with Windows and Mac builds.

Orbitcoin v1.6.3.0 has been released.

A scheduled release with binaries compiled for three major 64-bit targets: Linux, Windows (XP+) and MacOS X (10.5+). Binaries for 32-bit targets are no longer provided, though can be compiled still.

The LevelDB back-end has been updated. It also includes support for Snappy, a fast compressor/decompressor. There are other improvements, too.

No, it's compatible. This LevelDB build can read/write both uncompressed and compressed data. If the compression rate is less than 20%, it writes uncompressed. Older wallet releases cannot read compressed data, so reindexing is the only way to return to v1.6.2 unless you have a back-up.
