wallet is always wiped and always encrypted on the disk using a default pwd "" (if no pwd set)

i'll be aware of futur bitcoin changes, it can still be used safely as simple client (well except it's a beta for the moment but it's not the same problem)
i think bd is more restrictive than bc, it should not accept a tx that is rejected by bc
so i could tests it with bitcoin client and check if it is accepted

If you ever reject a block that Bitcoin accepts, then you'll permanently end up on a different chain.

minor differences would be fixed quickly, and chains automatically merged
one good point is that it could detect irregular tx that try to use an exploit in bitcoin client

but that problem is only for users that try to solve blocks, and solving blocks with bd is really not effecient
at all

 Angry
This Bitdollar wallet never received the 5BTC sent to it from MyBitcoin.
It seemed to install ok, connect, download blocks… 24hrs later, still no coins.
Computer did a windows restart then application and wallet was gone.
Reinstalled was reinstalled but a hard drive search of the previous wallet turned up nothing.
 Huh
A bigger question is: how can I get my bitcoins back if they are sent to non-existent or corrupted wallet?

as said without wallet, coins are lost
if wallet file is corrupted, i can take a look into it to move the address contained into another wallet

a backup of the wallet can be done safely but new address created won't be in the backup wallet
that's why bd give the choice to the user to create a new address for the change or not, creating new
address make your transaction less traceable, but force user to rebackup his wallet

bd creates a temp backup of the wallet before updating it, if computer restart
when the program is writing into the wallet, the temp backup file should be here
the file name is something like : youwalletfilename.XXXXX.bak (where XXXX are numbers)

but if both application and wallet was gone, maybe an external program erased them

do you have the destination address that should have received the btc? i will check the transaction in the block
if you rescue your wallet but coins are not still received, i'll take a look into it

Impressive work.

BTW: Your beta version builds fine in Linux after a trivial change to bitdollar.pro.  I haven't tested it yet on the network, though.


Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

I am also trying this on linux. Actually the trivial change to the pro file is
Code:
LIBS += -L/usr/lib/libssl.a

You should really set up a git repository for this project so that others can contribute.

due to lack of interest for this implementation i haven't worked a lot on it
i have added sighash and script support, but scripts are not yet handled exactly like bitcoin does
since i used my own big integer implementation, instead of the openssl big integer (minor issue)
this is only a problem for those who would like to solve blocks, but none tried afaik

no problem noticed using b$ as simple client, except the main view which display too much informations on transactions

for the moment i'm focusing on the bitdollar protocol (very different by design), but if i feel
more interest in the bitcoin implementation, i'll rework it

Can the coins really be gone forever?

Technically, the coins are still there in the database and if you knew the public address you could look them up on the block explorer.

But it would be like staring at the blue fairy through 9 feet of ice ... you could never spend them because the private key that is needed to transfer them is what has actually been lost, deleted or otherwise rendered inaccessible by your wallet.dat file mishap.

So if someone with a lot of bitcoin were to delete all those accounts, could new bitcoins be created, or would there be less that many bitcoins in the system forever?

... the second option.

They can not really "delete those accounts" but more that they could delete the private keys that give them access to those accounts, for all intents and purposes those coins are locked out of circulation without the private keys.
