thank you for your reply
help not contain any of combineany, splitsize or combinelimit
I can only see them in init.cpp as you said, seems to me that can only be specified as args of clamd, correct?
You can also put them in your clam.conf file. 
You should also be able to add them to the target field of a shortcut on windows as well, I believe.
thank you Smiley
another info, is ok that "weight" in "getstakinginfo" is always the same and not increase his value (at least not in 4 days)?
AFAIK the "weight" in the Clam wallet is the same as the number of CLAM coins staking.
n00b question: this way stacking is only luck? there isn't something like a score system (more time you are stacking more score you gain)?
You are correct. 
'Staking' on CLAM doesn't take into account the age of the coins or the number of times those coins have staked. 
Coins must wait a period of time after each stake to ensure they are deeper in the chain before staking again - but, other than that, staking is a function of coin amount and difficulty.
so at this point try to stake with the claim from btc/ltc/doge blockchain is useless?
is better to have them all together?

Much like hash rate in a proof-of-work crypto: more is better. 
 
That said, the total balance staking is more important than the size of the individual outputs staking. 
Too many individual outputs and you might be inefficient due to the time it takes to check the outputs.
Too few individual outputs and you might be inefficient due to the percentage that are immature at a given time after staking. 

If you have a very small total balance, it might take a long time to get a stake (though the realized percentage increase when you do would be higher).

so let's assume i have ~100 CLAM, is better to have them in block of ~4.16 CLAM or not?

edit: is better to have all the CLAM in the same address or it does not matter?

It might make sense to split 100 CLAM into piles of something like 5 or 10. 
The idea is that when split up a smaller percentage is immature when you stake a block. 
However, going too small might be undesirable as it slows down the speed with which you can check them and they must also be gathered when you decide to send them.

You should be aware with this amount may have to wait min 15-20 day for first 1 CLAM, assuming that you pc turn on 24/7
(wallet use quite a lot computer resources) so my suggestion better staking on justdice or btcpop (of course if you trust them)

Hey guys. I just posted a suggestion on freewallet.org for the developer to integrate CLAM into their wallet service. I think this would be excellent for the CLAM comunity as we are in need of a mobile wallet, and it also would spread awareness about the CLAM project. Please for "CLAM Wallet" at: https://freewallet.org/vote . Thank you for your support.

A couple of things:

1) I read here that freewallet.org holds user private keys, so you have to trust them not to exit-scam. I'm not sure that's a good idea. Most wallets let the user have exclusive control of their own private keys.

2) I don't see any way of voting on the page you linked to. Do I need to make an account or something first?  Edit: oh, it was because I had javascript disabled. Never mind...

I think this is pertinent - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F12lpqnug-0

Yes I am aware of that, and I personally would approach such a service with caution. You must trust the holder of your private keys (as a trust doog with my CLAMs). I still encourage CLAM users to vote to spread awareness of the project, even if they don't intend on using the wallet personally.

My wallet has been syncing for a week now and I am still 8 weeks out. I used the bootstrap and it is still taking forever any suggestions?

Is it still using the bootstrap file?

I will create a boostrap, put it in a password protected tarball and upload it to mega. Bear in mind, I will share a secret passphrase only with myself. I will be the only one who will be able to bootstrap a chain. I will laugh hard at ur attempts to guess a password to that archive.

Plain text bootstraps are available. You can publish your encrypted copy if you like but why would anyone care?

Earlier today I somehow managed to corrupt a wallet.dat file that had 10k CLAMs in it.

Code:
$ clamd
Clam server starting
Error: wallet.dat corrupt, salvage failed
$

All attempts at salvaging the private key failed until I remembered this old post:

I looked for 'undelete' programs, but didn't find anything that looked useful. I found this thread, but the git repository seems to have died. So I wrote my own simple "privkey finder":

It turns out the code in that thread worked as-is on the CLAM wallet, and provided the private key I needed to recover the 10k CLAMs.

It spat out the privkey in hex format. I then used http://clamaddress.org/ to convert it to the WIF format that 'importprivkey' accepts.

Phew!

Nice but, could you help to integrate the code into clam daemon?

By doing this every clam user will be able to use it when necessary.

That's not a bad idea. It could build a new wallet with the private keys it finds in an existing corrupt wallet file.
