Hi, everyone,

Just announcing that I made some Linux-arm builds for the GUI and headless wallet because I couldn't find any elsewhere. They're built directly from the official source, so it's pretty easy to do on your own as well... but if anyone wants the convenience of a prebuilt binary, you can grab mine from: http://starflakenights.net/crypto/wallets.html#vtc .

Hopefully these will help out someone other than me. I'll keep them updated as the source changes (or as often as is necessary), so check my site if they stop working after an official update.

EDIT: Forgot to mention a critical build point: these binaries use libdb5.1 rather than libdb4.8, which makes blockchain databases that they generate incompatible with official builds. This is okay for my purposes, since I really don't mind re-verifying the whole blockchain if mine gets corrupted, but it might be a turn-off for some. (You can go 4.8 to 5.1, but not 5.1 to 4.8.)

Speaking of blockchain... do I have to have a copy of the whole thing on my computer for my wallet to work as it is taking up a lot of space I can only imagine how big it will get in years to come.

By design, you need to keep a copy of the blockchain to use the wallet binaries. I believe the only way to get around that is to opt for an online wallet service, which obviously carries increased risk.

Here's a decent article that explains the security and pros and cons of each situation, albeit for Bitcoin, a little more thoroughly: http://www.stavros.io/posts/store-bitcoins-safely/.

Thanks for the info. Is there a way to move where the files are stored as my main drive is an SSD and has quite limited storage capacity so I would rather it was on one of my reg hard disks.

Thanks again

Not sure what OS you're using, but this (again Bitcoin) documentation shows where you can find the wallet/blockchain directory: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Running_Bitcoin#Bitcoin.conf_Configuration_File . It'll be "vertcoin" rather than "bitcoin", obviously.

Once you've found the directory, move it to wherever you want to keep it and start your wallet with the -datadir=%location% command, where %location% is the relative or absolute location of your vertcoin directory. With Windows, it might not work with relative locations, though - I've never tested it.

For example, if have my wallet directory in a data directory that sits in the same directory as the executable on Linux, I'd run:
Code:
./vertcoin-qt -datadir=./data

Also, if you are running on Windows and have your wallet directory at D:\Vertcoin, I believe you can embed the -datadir option in a shortcut. You can create a shortcut to the Vertcoin wallet, right click it, go to properties, and add
Code:
-datadir=D:\Vertcoin

Hopefully that helps!

Actually, you can use the zero-trust wallets also such as the one here: https://wallet.thisisvtc.com

Basically the private key is not stored on the wallet itself, but id created based on your browser account and password (or something like this) - so its important you don't lose those.

This seems to be the best CPU GPU coin out there, keep it up Wink

Not really CPU, more focused on GPU I think...

I said CPU coin because there is no much advantage using GPU specially compared watts to watts or the GPU miner is not well optimized.

Maybe watts for watts GPU is not efficient, but you can put several GPU in one PC. The total hash is higher.

the algorythm has been designed to be memory heavy and thus gpu unfriendly; like cryptonight, for example.
regardless, if you look at nicehash or yaamp, lyra2RE is never the most profitable algo to mine.
because of this, and the fact that it's used by vertcoin only, who mines it must be a vertcoin believer.
when that's the case, performance/watt is not that important.

what about elasticity? Smiley how far are the developments?

and where is the community?

Community is sleeping - Vertcoin needs more developers to get on board and help. But as ever, people rather create their own shitcoin clones than actually help a serious cryptocurrency improve.

This one like zerovert scam? https://moneta.cash/about.html
And muzzles persons under investigation suspiciously are familiar.  Smiley

Reputation is such a thing... Gets dirty only once but forever.

I'm out now, sorry for little dump.

Kind regards.

Chance favors the prepared mind. :-)

Agree, i was with vert right at the beginning, and still holding some, all these crap coins come out without any development or origionality, and they fly. quality coins such as this just seem to get pumped and dumped, make some profit, and on to the next.
Exactly what has happened with PND - another excelent coin, that had great dev's and ideas, look at the pandabank wallet for instance- incredible bit of work.
Alas, this is going to be the downfall of all of crypto.
