Someone just dug up a ton of fresh clams

Something to remember, when looking at network 'weight' as a measure: at this point, freshly dug CLAMS have a great deal of 'age' and thus weight.

Only 877 CLAM on Poloniex's sell side now... EVERYONE must be staking now....
I can only assume that is good? -ish?

Price seems rather stable... volume is down a bit...

There's no "line", just a "difficulty".

Most of the time the difficulty is at its minimum, meaning that every 1 CLAM-day output has a 1-in-a-million chance of staking each second.

Currently the difficulty is 20 times higher than the minimum, meaning that each output is 20 times less likely to stake in any given time period.

So if you're used to staking 20 times per day, now you'll be getting about 1 block per day instead, and it will feel as if you are at the "back of the line".

I usually get 5 or 6 blocks per hour, but overnight I went 5 hours without staking a single block! Sad

Wait, in order to get my clams I need to give the program my btc ltc and doge wallet? How do I know it isn't just trying to steal my coins?

Wait, in order to get my clams I need to give the program my btc ltc and doge wallet? How do I know it isn't just trying to steal my coins?

The way I know is that I looked at the source code and built my own executable from that source code.

If you have the time and capability, you could do the same.

Alternatively, you can move your coins into a new wallet, then give it the old one. So long as you don't receive coins at any of the old addresses in the future that will be safe even if the wallet is trying to steal from you.

Also bear in mind that even if you don't "give" an altcoin program your BTC wallet, as soon as you run any program on your computer it can grab a copy of all your wallets and send them to the author of the program. So there's no extra trust needed to run this particular program.

Finally, here's a little more proof.

See this address:
https://blockchain.info/address/1MJtFXUBrvMB3yVkVFuTsfKXjEnyxNx7E4

It currently has 41.77661269 BTC on it.

Converting that address into a CLAM address (details):

Code:
>>> import bitcoin.base58
>>> def btc2clam(addr): return bitcoin.base58.CBase58Data(bitcoin.base58.decode(addr)[1:-4], 0x89).__str__()
...
>>> print btc2clam('1MJtFXUBrvMB3yVkVFuTsfKXjEnyxNx7E4')
xUcX9QJf8dqD6MbcqjY8JqcJxM6DNd6JL2

Check the CLAM address:

http://khashier.com:2750/address/xUcX9QJf8dqD6MbcqjY8JqcJxM6DNd6JL2

You'll see it has been staking for 21 days and has grown from the free 4.6 CLAMs it was given to 5.53249215 CLAM today.

The CLAM wallet could have stolen the 41.7 BTC at any time in the last 3 weeks, and hasn't.

This is true.... SO, you create a new BTC address and new LTC address and a  new DOGE address, transfer your funds to the new addresses and then use the private keys of the old addresses only to get your clams...

Or stop worrying and just dig up your clams....

I think that is a better argument for the safety of the CLAMClient than any I have yet seen.

You need to talk to PocketRocketsCasino about accenting CLAM.

They already take BTC and DOGE, so I guess it wouldn't be a lot of work to add another coin.

When you run clamd or clam-qt, specific an extra argument:

  -datadir=<dir>         Specify data directory

That tells it where to look for the whole data directory, where wallet.dat, the chain, and everything else live.

If you're using Windows, you can probably make a shortcut icon then right-click->properties->target or something to edit in that extra parameter, but it's been a long time since I did anything like that so maybe it's changed (or I've forgotten).

The network difficulty is at all all-time high - new CLAMs are being dug up all the time.

I don't mean to be a 'negative nancy' but I would rephrase that is *currently* at an all time high. I'm not an expert here (clearly), but I'm assuming that once the weight is 'dropped' from these newly dug CLAMs, we'll be back to the 4k-9k difficulty.

I'm actually looking forward to that lower difficulty though, as it gives me an increased chance to discover those *precious* lottery blocks! Waiting these 3+ days it painful.. Yes, call the 'waaaambulance"...

Hello romeshomey!

Please make sure you have downloaded the most recent client, CLAMClient 1.4.2.1

If the newest client does not solve your issue; please feel free to PM me.
We will do some ping/addnode magic and get to the bottom of the problem Smiley
