Guys my wallet doesnt sync. Ive added nodes from the OP to my conf file, and also Altcoin center's nodes. Ive also downloaded the full blk0001.dat And put it in the appdata/btcd map. Still no single connection  Embarrassed

If you haven't already, may want to try without the .conf file Mr. Morris.  I've never used one and never had a syncing problem..... it just took 30 minutes or so to grab some solid peers back in July, when i first downloaded wallet.  Worth a shot, at least Smiley

We've bee up to 300000 several weeks back.  Roll Eyes

So, is "weight" = "coins"?


Yes, as far as I know, you are correct Smiley.  The NW weight is equal to the total number of coins staking at any given time.

that is not clear
i think there is a significant discount and adjustments to this
You can test it by taking some coins off staking and putting in back on and seeing if the weight changes 1:1
I think it is more like 1:3 or more, so it needs to be multiplied to estimate the actual number of coins staking

Apologies for the curve ball PilotofBTC, I'm still learning too Smiley.  James, by 1:3 do you mean if the NW weight is 1, then there are likely 3 coins staking?  Or vice versa?

if NW weight is 100,000 then at least 300,000 staking
this ratio could be as high as 10!
the thing is that it is always fluctuating. so when you get a block, you lose some time "recharging"
now since the largest stakes are most likely to get a block, that means at any given point in time, the recent history would be mostly large accounts that got them.

So, the natural effect would be to reach an active value that is much, much lower than the actual coins staking. There is probably a way to get a much better idea of the true number, but I am not familiar enough with this aspect to do it myself

James

P.S. I have seen the NW go below the number of coins I had staking, so I am sure a lot more coins are staking than the network weight. In fact I look at my current wt vs coins and it is 4:1, so you can look at your ratio and see how it changs over time

Couple of questions I've been meaning to ask for some time and which others may perhaps also be interested in knowing the answer to:

Can you control the amount staked by a wallet or is it always automatically determined?

Also: why is the amount of the balance as shown in the block explorer less than what's shown in the wallet?

Thanks in advance Smiley

Having same problem with wallet. Tried with and w/o conf file. No peers or connections whatsoever

I have ran the same wallet on several computers and had similar problems.
I exactly followed the instruction, but ended up failing at syncing.
I succeeded by copying the exact files from my other rig which was successfully syncing.
But above option is not available for many new BTCDers.
I suggest dev making installer which will set up syncing conf file.
The single biggest problem that cause online retailers to lose money is simple failures during check out.
I think we might lose many new BTCDers due to frustrations while syncing their wallets.
I know many people help newcomers setting up, but it would be nicer if there's a simpler way.

The upcoming BitcoinDark wallet will automatically create a BitcoinDark.conf file with some known peers and a strong random password.

Will users still be able to manually create their own passwords with the new wallet?

Thanks for that numbers. What I dont get is the number of coins held in MGW. Obviously the multisig addresses are not displayed. Also it seems there are roughly 300k coins on MGW.  Huh

Sure. What it currently does is check if BitcoinDark.conf exists or not. If it doesn't, it creates a new one with a few fields such as addnode, rpcuser and password, etc. and fill them in.

To create your own password, just change the rpcpassword field to whatever you like.

the new wallet wont fix any connectivity issues you are having.
I think you just need to addnode the right nodes, just a few good ones are better than a lot of them
try deleting peers.dat

so make sure you are exited, delete peers.data and start again

if that doesnt work, then change the BitcoinDark.conf file to use just a few good nodes, which others can post about which ones they are

I have no active firewall. I tried deleting peers.dat. Ive also tried the BitcoinDark.conf from the OP aswell as copying only the addnode values from the OP to my BitcoinDark.conf. Still 0 active connections. ive never had something like this before. All other wallets are running fine  Huh
