As far as I know, no exchanges credit PoS interest, as that only happens on the individual wallet level.
Sure, this is why I have written "PC- or Raspi-wallet". It makes no sense to keep the stones at cryptopia for a longer period of time.

At one point I sent myself my entire wallet in order to consolidate the interest payments. A tactic I would not attempt again, but the program knew that the transaction came from "self" and now most of my minting is titled "self" or "cryptopia"
Yes, this makes it easier for you to track your rewards. The titles of your incoming addresses are only program-internal. Do you have privacy concerns with the wallet itself? If yes, feel free to read the source code and compile it from source  Wink

Hi fellow PHSers,

I've got my Raspberry Pi up and running however when I start the wallet I receive this error:

   libpng warning: iccp: known incorrect sRGB profile.

I have found how to fix it but can't find the image files, does anyone know where they are stored?

Cheers

Think I had this too, probably still have it, but it's not an error, just a warning... does it start up or not ?
Generally speaking, Linux will tend to give you warnings about anything that is _potentially_ going wrong, but most of the time it will work anyway -- that is, if it's labelled as a warning and not as an error.
For a reference, I doubt I've ever been compiling anything except small code examples without getting warnings about all sorts of things -- most of the time you can just ignore it.
Though, if you can fix this warning, you should consider opening an issue on the GitHub, any help should be welcome :-)

If I'm wrong about any of this, someone please tell me...

Yeah, it still runs ok, it just nags at my OCD lol.  I'll ignore it, cheers.

At the moment the wallets seem to run quite good (no complaints here).
But I have planned one or two commits this year (depends on my freetime)
Maybe Vlatk is working on an mobile wallet and on updating the website.
Maybe Palmdetroid has some additional idea.

But the biggest commit for PHS would be just using it for buying something of your friends
or for paying donations for example for donationware-software and so on.

Additionnaly, if anyone here can afford it, running a full node sounds like a sensible idea.
I don't think there's many of them, maybe only about 6, and from what I hear it's absolutely necessary for the network to be operational.
I'm running one of those on a small fanless computer that consumes only 10W, and it doesn't cost much CPU, a bit of memory though.
I was strongly encouraged by one of the devs to do so, he said the network was still fragile and needed investment by the members.
It only takes minor changes in the config file, AND for the machine to be running most of the time (people will be connecting to your place, so you can't shutdown without notice).
If you're running something like a miner, or a home web server, or what not, then it has little overhead, and it's one more chance that the network will survive.
I'm available for questions about this, though more experienced members of the community could probably explain a lot more.

And +1 for using PHS for actual trades, though we must be sprinkled over between North America and Europe, and there's little chance we're going to find opporunities... Maybe Cryptopia trade is the best option towards that, so whoever wants to do this should keep an eye on announcements quoted in PHS.

Thank you for your full node network support. I run a full node since January 2018, too.
I guess if there were more userfriendly documentation about how to run a full node we would have more full nodes...especially because the PHS-wallet is available as an ARM-CPU (Raspberry Pi) version.
https://github.com/toxtox/philosopherstone/releases

Currently the only information known to me about how to set up a full node for PHS can be found in the Readme.txt on github

Yes, well, that's about all you need:
- open the stated port on your firewall
- edit config file to run as a full node (and restart)

You should see the number of connections rising to about 30, over a matter of minutes.
And then you should be running the node most of the time, as continuously as possible.

I got that much from toxtox as well, while I was setting up Philosopherstone-qt under Linux. Great thanks to him, otherwise Linux people would get stuck...

What is the difference between running a 'full node' and running a wallet on a RaspPi 24/7 (which I am currently doing)? Should I go full node?

"full node" means that you allow outbound connections to other nodes (wallets) for sharing your local copy of the blockchain. This stabilizes the network and increases the trustworthy of the blockchain.
But for running your wallet as a "full node" you must either enable UPNP in your router and your wallet or you can manually open the port 16281 in your router.

You can click on the bar chart with the number of connections (right lower corner) in order to view the details of your connections. If you have outbound connections you have a full node.
Or if your total number of connections is much more then 10 (e.g. 18 or 35) than you mast have full node too.

Current news from Cryptopia, with my interpretation:

- prices are plummeting due to some people buying very low, with heavy support (something like 23000PHS on the 4.35uBTC line, which is quite enormous)
- I've seen this bloke making random offers around 20000PHS for a while, feels like someone who doesn't mind losing up to 1000$ (which is not my case, at any rate)
- conclusion: could be some kind of trolling to destabilise our fragile market (most people are bidding 500-1000PHS at a time, so this looks like powerful 'investors')

So, here's my message to the community:
- remembering how BTC itself was quite destabilised by financial market investors, I would advise PHS owners not to sell at such a low rate (and lose quite a lot of money). Not giving in to such pressure should lead them to make more reasonable offers. Up until now PHS has been staying wisely between 5 and 6 uBTC, there's no reason this should change all of a sudden because Mr Big Guy decided it was so. And if we want to make this into an actual currency, we have to keep it stable.

The bottomline is that a number of powerful shareholders will be ready to lose some money to ruin the cryptocurrency initiative, seeing as it threatens the all-powerfulness of the banking system they rely on. The community has to be ready to stand firm to those attacks, and react intelligently by thinking of long-term profit rather than giving in to induced market panic. Personnally I'm not going to change my positions, and will still be selling around 6uBTC, because I know what PHS is worth.

Thanks for your attention,
W

The PHS seem to have a built-in price stabilisation. Wink

The staking profit is very high, so the PHS owners prefer to stake instead of trading PHS on an exchange.  Cool
This results in a low trading volume of PHS is quite low.

You can see some "bears" on cryptopia who want to buy PHS for a lower price but the PHS owners prefer to stake PHS instead of selling PHS ;-)
But the time is running against the "bears" because the longer they wait to buy PHS the more stake profit they will miss.

Not sure about that, I'm still making quite a lot of profit playing a usual game of buying at a slightly lesser price and selling at a slightly higher price. Most of my fund is staking, but if I dedicate ~2000PHS to that, it seems profitable. And in doing this I'm participating in keeping the thing around a medium level. People come in an out of the market, because they need their money elsewhere, and if nobody is present on the market this results in them buying or selling at extreme prices. We do need to have a quote for PHS (otherwise it would be purely abstract), and that is done through the continuous negociation of the market. Things would be different if PHS was quoted on several markets, but this might take some time.

I've noticed recently (~3 days) that on my Android phone, the quotes for PHS@Cryptopia are not getting updated.
I'm using both the 'official' PHS app for Android and BitCoin Checker, and none of the two seem to be getting updates.
Is that specific to me ? Is it related to Cryptopia modifying their public API ? Or is this specific to PHS ?

If anyone has any relevant information, it's welcome...

I set the "Refresh Interval" in the "Simple Philosopherstone Widget"  to 1 minute and I always get the latest prices from cryptopia.
 
I guess you have enabled "backgroud data saver" or something similar on your phone?

Not sure about what you mean by 'background data saver'. Just took a look and it doesn't seem enabled anywhere in data consumption.
I usually have no mobile data whatsoever, I turn it on only when I need it. I mostly stay at home anyway, and only need the phone when I'm on the move.
GPS is usually disabled also, not for privacy reasons but because it ruins my battery lifecycle.
Please note I'm using an old SG3 that still runs pretty well with the now defunct CyanogenMod.
It might sound silly for a computer professional, but I started programming long before home PCs were the norm, saw laptops, cell phones and then smartphones appearing during my lifetime, and am still not used to software that supposedly autoconfigures -- though as opposed to my elder brother, who's a real CLI fanatic, I tend to appreciate GUI if it gives you a hint of what is really going on...
The fact that BitCoin Checker is failing to update also seems to indicate a more general problem, which is why I'm asking.
Maybe I should mention I'm living in France, sometimes I wonder whether that might be a problem.
