can I just claim my Clam, is it too late ? how to

Any BTC, LTC, or DOGE private key which had some non-dust amount of coin on it some time in early May this year will have 4.6 or so CLAM on it too.

Simply export the private key from your BTC (or LTC, or DOGE) client and import it into the CLAM client.

Alternately, you can just copy your wallet.dat from the BTC data folder into the CLAM data folder, then run "clam-qt -rescan" to have it check all the private keys in that wallet.

A natural concern is that the CLAM wallet software will steal the BTC from the private keys you give it. I have given it private keys with hundreds of BTC on, and it hasn't stolen any of them.

If you're concerned, you can make sure the private keys you give it have already been emptied out of BTC - then you don't have to trust the CLAM software.

Sweet ! So those centralized services generating numerous addresses can have boat load of clams.

Anyone else noticed a higher number of "Generated but not accepted" recently? Over the last 2 days I've had 20%.... 2 out of the last 10.

Maybe the number of coins I'm staking is too low (5-8 per "pile")?

Am using build v1.4.2.0-47-g7fecba1.

Try to increase your peer count.  5 per pile seems to be a great amount per stack, and that shouldn't have any affect on orphans anyway.

I have never had an orphan block since I have been staking CLAMs.

Yeah, as soon as I saw the nodes worked, I closed the client and replaced the wallet.dat, they slowly started popping up as I downloaded the blockchain.  And already got 0.1 CLAM more for staking!

The network difficulty is generally at or around the minimum.

That means that each of your 4.6 CLAM outputs has a 2^20 / (4.6 * age_in_days) chance of staking each second.

The distribution was around 72 days ago, and so:

>>> 2**20 / (72 * 4.6)
3166

each 4.6 CLAM output will typically take about an hour on average to stake.

When it stakes, its age is destroyed, so you won't expect to see it stake again for a while.

And the 0.1 you saw is pseudo-random, and can be as much as 1000 CLAMs if you're really lucky.

99% of the time it's 0.1 though.

Ok, so forgive me if this has been addressed already, but I'm just curious if I understand this correctly.  If I have 50 clams, odds are I am going to hit the same number of PoS blocks in a year no matter if those clams are in one pile or spread out in little piles over 100 different addresses.  EXCEPT for that long confirmation time of 510 blocks.  If we view PoS in clams as a lottery, the guy that has all his clams in one pile effectively doesn't have a ticket for 510 blocks.  So the guy with lots of little piles will end up hitting more blocks, as he is always going to have a ticket.  So it is advantageous to spread your clams out as much as possible.  Do I got this right?

I think someone dug up a WHOLE LOT of old clams. If you look at the block explorer, almost all of the new stakes are on stacks of 4.60545574.

No, I've noticed quite the opposite.

I used to get one or two per day, and recently I've seen none for 4 days.

I think it's just a question of luck. If you and I both try to stake a block at the same time, only one of us can succeed. Whichever of us has the better connection to the network "wins".

Note that it doesn't really matter - if an output stakes but that block isn't accepted, the output keeps its previous weight and so gets to stake again relatively quickly.

That means that each of your 4.6 CLAM outputs has a 2^20 / (4.6 * age_in_days) chance of staking each second.

If I have 50 clams, odds are I am going to hit the same number of PoS blocks in a year no matter if those clams are in one pile or spread out in little piles over 100 different addresses.  EXCEPT for that long confirmation time of 510 blocks.

Do I got this right?

If what I said was true, your conclusion is also true.

However... Smiley

I missed out a small detail, and your real chance of staking (per second) is 1 in:

2^20 / int(value_in_CLAMs * age_in_days)

ie. the weight of your output is rounded down to an integer number of CLAM-days.

That means that if you split your outputs up into 0.01 CLAM units, they have (effectively) zero chance of staking until they are 100 days old.  (I say "effectively" because if your output rolls a zero in the sha256 hash, it stakes. But that (effectively) never happens).

Note also that the 2^20 is for minimum difficulty. At the moment we're at around 10 times minimum difficulty, so you need to decrease your chance by a factor of 10 until the recently dug CLAM mother lode finishes its initial round of staking.

I've not seen an analysis of the best stake size given these two constraints.

Oh, and there's a 3rd constraint: no output is allowed to stake within 4 hours of its previous movement (staking or transacting).

I think someone dug up a WHOLE LOT of old clams. If you look at the block explorer, almost all of the new stakes are on stacks of 4.60545574.

216 of the most recent 232 blocks (all but 16) were freshly dug 4.60545574 CLAM outputs.

Only 1 of the 38 blocks before that were freshly dug.

Maybe an exchange, or gambling site? It is still mostly fresh clams staking. They must have a very substantial amount(assuming it is one person, but my bet is it is).

That explains it then. The weight seems to be dropping again now, so I guess this batch is nearing its end (maybe 2/3rds don looking at the numbers).

I hope it's lots of new CLAM diggers and not just 1 but who knows...

it seems my wallet refuses to sync after block 34001

Hard fork. Install the newer client.

i'm using the 1.4.2b client but it will not go further then 34001



edit: fixed by reloading the chain


Same issue again, wallet will not sync :s

It staked for a few day's and then it did'nt sync anymore

is it only me that's having this problem?

Is it stuck at block 34001 again?

If so, that's a hard-fork problem.

If not, try adding these lines to your clam.conf file and restarting:

I'm also having problems for the first time (all installations 1.4.2b for last 2 weeks).

2 clients working normally on 2 machines...
A 3rd client on a 3rd machine pops up then "not responding" so just freezes...
(Nothing helps this one even total reinstallation).

And clients installed on 2 fresh PCs not connecting at all for many hours...
Even with those nodes (though you should post a full config file)...
Why would "debug" have "addnode" removed?

So netstakeweight spiked... and then drop from > 200,000 to 8,833?
If that is in fact what happened?

It looks like someone dug up a whole bunch of old clams from the initial distribution, and let them all stake.

Old clams stake relatively easily, because chance of staking is proportional to age times value.

One they all staked once, their age will have been reset to zero, and so the rush of staking abated (until the next person digs up a bunch).

Weight is just the sum of (age-in-days times value-in-clams) of all outputs currently trying to stake.

Each old distribution output is 4.6 CLAMs, and about 74 days old. That gives each one a weight of 340 CLAM-days until it successfully stakes.

If the network weight went up by 200k, that suggests that around 600 (200k / 340) old 4.6 CLAM outputs were found in a single dig!

Edit:

That matches pretty closely with the number of addresses that have been claimed. A couple of days ago the IRC bot reported:

Quote
05:08 < SuperClam>  Amount Claimed:  9151.04055538 Clams, 1987 Addresses

And now it reports:

Quote
19:39 < SuperClam>  Amount Claimed: 12103.13768472 Clams, 2628 Addresses
