Hey guys look under his plate... Looks like theres some manuals or something about satoshi and nodes.  This guys a complete amateur reading about what a node is lmao  No wonder he can't make a wallet update.

He's also reading about GNU compilation. This isn't new news though, Shawn Kent hasn't hidden the fact that he's not really a "dev" and outsources some of the work. That also wouldn't be a problem if he was at least managing the coin and communication properly. 

I'm frankly quite surprised that BeanCore hasn't seen the light and replaced him. Then again, thanks to Gazzatron's recent post, we can see the largest holder gets the most say and I'll bet he's held onto a fair amount of bitbeans to secure his spot.

I agree BitcoinNational, with the right management that kind of tie in might be completely possible, but I also agree the dev likely needs to change before any serious real world business would get involved. Remember, this is the same dev who told people five months ago in his open #bitbean IRC channel that he was keeping the value of the bean down on purpose delaying the Android wallet so that other insiders could buy more beans before their price went up. We know that "witholding the Android wallet" was a lie, as it is clear now it was never even close to ready.

Bean Core once had a decent community to leverage if they took bitbeaner off his throne, but these days its looking kind of sparse.

I was going to say... did you really think using "sprouts" while someone has an alt by that name already was a good idea?

Please consider changing that. It reeks of amateurism and is a cheap move. You either weren't aware of sprouts (doubtful as I've seen them discussed along with bitbean in several places) or didn't care about stepping on another altcoin's toes... either way, not a very smooth move on your part.

INVESTORS BEWARE: Do not buy in based on a wallet update that gives no real practical value to the coin, please scroll back through this and other threads and understand just ho9w sketchy the "dev" has been up until now before you become another bagholder.

If you understand the shady nature and lack of scruples shown by the dev, you can make some profit off bitbean but the wallet isn't an indicator of actual growth in and of itself.

"sprouts"
fine play on the idea but please realize this coin is branded as BITB
if you like "the BEAN" go with it too.

then only slightly suggest the "sprouts" ... in images okay ... but in name you run into confusion.


"DNS seeds added and DNS seeding enabled by default (no more bitbean.conf or addnodes needed to sync)"
you sure about that detail?

that said this project went from like a 1 to a 7 today ... not bad :/

Here's a good indicator: They offered a 100k bitbean bounty for a bitbean faucet and to also give 100k bitbeans to fuel the faucet. I recommended that cryptospout add it and even they wouldn't touch it it seems.

When you can't even get someone to put up a faucet, it is a sign you're doing things wrong.

Again, Bitbeaner aka Shawn Kent is the main issue, BeanCore needs to step up and take over, then this wallet release might actually be the start of better things. Otherwise this is just smoke and mirrors.

Edit: Even if Shawn stays involved in the background, as long as he isn't the primary decision maker, responsible for communication or putting together future roadmaps, i suspect things will improve.

As you can see the Windows binaries are available. Anyone requiring help on building the wallet from source, please don't hesitate to post your issues here as Windows builds are not straight forward. The wallet source builds are lacking grossly with most (nearly all) coins requiring many mods to the coin source to get it building successfully with Windows (including the old source of BitBean). The BitBean 1.1 source provided will build the wallet successfully for a correctly set up 32 bit development environment. The base requirement are:

Mingw
boost_1_59_0
db-5.3.28
openssl-1.0.1j
miniupnpc
qrencode-3.4.4
zlib 1.2.8
QT 4.8.6

There are a number of mods to do, both to Mingw and Qt. As a base 'how to', roughly refer to https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=149479.0 describing building bitcoin. Obviously you will replace the compiles of the dependencies in this guide with the ones provided above and the final wallet build is done from msys using the following commands from the bitbean source directory:

qmake "USE_UPNP=-" "USE_QRCODE=1"
mingw32-make

Remember the Qt used to build the BitBean wallet has to be 4.8.6.

Happy compiling Smiley

This release contains a lot of 'under the hood' modifications and is the base for future development of the Bean wallet. Better coin control is one close to my heart and I will be championing this feature update to be in the next release.

Regarding the Windows wallet build (and linux) I would recommend compiling all these prerequisites from source including Qt. This will ensure a stable development environment. Obviously the Mingw is a straight forward download, unpack and setup.

Pssst, Gazzatron, oh great head of communication and community relations.

Nobody is talking about the new wallet... In case you didn't notice. There are more... pressing issues to address.

I thought Bitbeaner was in charge of lying to and ignoring his community, or are you just splitting that responsibility now?

Just saying.

For starters you could address the hijacking of the term sprouts from another much better managed all coin named...  sprouts.  Maybe you should champion changing that before coin control which has been available in the old wallet all along and really isn't an issue or even a relevant feature.

It took me only a couple hours using Google to figure out how to enable coin control in the old wallet,  instructions that would have been nice in say....  the wiki that bean core was supposedly putting together 4 months ago.

Looking at a comparison of BitBean-Vault and Sprouts-Wallet, I see no resemblance what-so-ever, with BitBean the new Digital Crypto-Currency, and "Sprouts" the coin.

The BitBean Wallet (being re-branded as a "Vault") synchronizes and loads it's block chain (that can hold up to 20MB per block)--without a config file or manually adding any nodes.
Sprouts on the other hand, is unable to connect to it's network and load anything and is limited to a maximum of 1MB block sizes.

BitBean has an active, dedicated development Team invested in BitBean for the long haul, that just updated it's wallet a day ago.

BitBean's SPROUT, is a monetary unit of BitBean, representing 1,000 BitB (BitBeans--the number of BitBeans given as a reward for a 'staking' block on the BitBean network). The concept of a monetary unit called "SPROUTs" for BitBean, originated back in April 2015, long before 'Sprouts the Coin' existed. Bean Core has an extensive and long-term vision for BitBean. An updated RoadMap will be published soon.

And for those that need further clarification...

"Bean sprouts are the tender edible shoots of germinated beans. Most people are familiar with mung bean sprouts in particular, but a wide assortment of seeds, nuts, grains, and beans can be sprouted. Their slightly crunchy texture and sweet flavor makes them a popular addition to an assortment of dishes. Because sprouts have become a common ingredient, many grocery stores carry them, and they can also be prepared at home.

Mung bean sprouts originate in Asia, where they have been made and used for thousands of years. Cultural diffusion led to the appearance of sprouts in other places and in other cuisines, and intrepid cooks began sprouting all sorts of things to add to their food. In most cases, they can be used raw or lightly cooked, and they should be used as quickly as possible. If they are going to be cooked, they can be frozen for up to three months.

To sprout beans, soak them in water and then place them in a warm dark place to stimulate germination. The sprouts should be regularly rinsed as they grow, and within a few days, small edible shoots should have begun to appear. These shoots must always washed before use, and they are typically used while they are still short. Longer sprouts tend to get more woody and bitter. Exposing the sprouts to sunlight will cause them to start photosynthesizing, which will make them pale green."
