Old daemon and wallet version 0.18.3
[Solved] Wow lost my feathercoin (i think)
yes I think so, your wallet backup should contain the private key, but the file will be encrypted as part of the backup process, using your android wallet passphrase, it would just be a case of unencrypting the file I’d think?
like he said they’re on the blockchain so its good, i just need to get these wallets fixed, lol… and linux is not being kind.
(same shit different decade. i’ve never had luck compiling in linux, lol)
Maybe if we ask nicely lizhi might compile a windows version of the new 8.7.1 wallet :)
nah it was the crafty -iGL option lol
ok compiled to the latest version of feathercoin wallet still nothing going to do a fresh sync with a blank wallet and then import my old wallet in using public and private keys, if not no sweat i can make up the 5k
the other thing, when i check my ftc address on the blockchain it says one address while other sites report it as a totally different address (i said in my first post)
still a no go on the win32 wallet
Longshot, but when you installed the windows wallet, did you run it as administrator to install it? The reason I ask, is because the roaming folder has a folder per user and when first ran, it’s possibly the administrator wallet you first see. If you right click the feathercoin icon and run as administrator you will see another wallet, could this be the missing one perhaps?
no its under my login, i’ve sent 10ftc and 1 ftc after the resync nothing came through… there is no folder under the administrator account.
i’ve done the usual uninstall/reinstall, sync the wallet, import the wallet… its locked (i know, because when i started mining ftc back in january i locked it, lol)
and no love on my linux desktop crashed when i was dicking around inside with the libs (i’ve done this enough in 15 22 years (now) to know how to fix it, lol)
i’ll work on that when i get back home today, its laundry day! and with 15 hour over time days this week i’ll need the clothes.
is there a new release with 8.7.1?
the cell phone wallet is sync’ing, choking and crashing (been sending reports back every time), soooooooo i’ll probably wait till next sunday to tackle this again.
maybe its the big bank neo scrypt?
is that in the wallet yet?
Where are you based blackross?
And can you post the public address you expected coins to be in just so we can check it really is on the block chain.
We have noticed there may be a fork of users using the old wallet which maybe what you are syncing to on your phone and desktop wallet.
Which may be why you are not seeing the coins. But if your seeing the coins at http://explorer.Feathercoin.com then you can rest easy. But its not good. We really need to sort this out. I think we need to bring in bush here as its pretty serious!
Well i thought I posted everything in the original post
why is there 2 different balances?
it seems, that bitcoininfocharts does not show the correct address.
There is at least one other report, that the addresses in the browser address line and the one shown on the web page are different.
I’ve been mining with asic since January, then neoscrypt comes out because of the gpu miners that dumped all that money into their hardware… and now I have wallets issues. was there a conversion? I know wallets get updated. That’s life… I don’t watch block counts, I leave the miners run on rotation with easiest difficulty, drive 80 miles a day to work and back 5am to 6pm (with traffic). I just expect it work… it’s now on worldcoin since the ftc pool is throwing wild ass loads of rejects, my minera was just hijacked friday for some reason and locked that down and now this.
I don’t know the details of how it works, all I know is… I sync my wallet(s), coins come in, they confirm, I send to cryptsy (after entering my passcode), trade for bitcoin (profit!).
It’s sync’d up at home, last transaction I see there was from when I fired up my ant miner and mined from fcpool last year as a test… yes I see my address on the block chain in two different areas, feathercoin explorer (which I hope), and bitinfocharts (which I’ve never had issues with till now).
Desktop is still not working yet, haven’t been home to fix it yet.
And that is where I am right now.
Like I said I will probably pick this up next Sunday.
Then I will drop bitinfocharts
Thanks for your help I’ll check back next Sunday hopefully 8.7.1 will be out for win 32 then.
Sorry I can’t be of more help I will contact Bushstar (lead dev/Founder) to see he can help at all.
I’ve been digging further here and there is a fork in the block chain.
The real block number is in the 451xxx range and if you monitor peers in the android wallet you can see new 0.8.7 wallets use that chain. Old non updated wallets 0.8.6.2 are on the 449xxx chain.
I’m sorry to break the news but it looks like you have been mining the old fork chain. Possibly they have not updated the mining pool software. I think that’s how you were getting so many coins (50+ every few blocks)
Have you been mining with an scrypt ASIC all along? Since the switch to NeoScrypt ASIC’s cannot mine Feathercoin. You will have to point it at a different Scrypt coin. Such as litecoin?
I’m sorry if I gave you false hope before when I said if its in the block explorer your safe. But as I didn’t have your address to copy and paste it into the Feathercoin explorer I had not verified this.
It does raise the issue that there are pools operating on the fork chain.
i mean i get home, fix desktop (bad hd, no sweat have mirrors)
and check against explorer here…
laptop /\ address
i’m just getting frustrated, sorry dude, i expected a once simple asic turn key with minimal investment… i didn’t expect to dump thousands of dollars into gpu hardware, never reach break even and get a bailout later in the year back when i started fully in january… if i knew then i would have stayed on other coins.
seriously thanks for your help kris and everyone else.
i’ll just wait till next sunday for the block chains to settle, main think that torqued me was i sent over 5k to coinmkt to sell and it sold but now i am in the hole there 2.7k for some reason, so i sent 2.5k more to cover, and other small amounts… there it still hasnt confirmed, but then again i think he is upgrading his wallet.
just sucks cryptsy i would never have that problem, there’s only email support at coinmkt, i wish he had a phone number… easy to call than email, the last time i had an issue he stated “someone marked this email as read” lmao
If you have your ASIC its not defunct at all it just can’t mine Feathercoin directly. Maybe you could try a scrypt multi pool that pays out in BTC.
(I’ve tried clevermining.com in the past)
The 2.7k in the hole could be linked to the same issue you had with the forked block chain. If you and CoinMKT were both on the old chain when you sent fork mined coins to sell them and then CoinMKT updated the wallet and realised at least some of the trade was bogus it debited that amount from your account and with zero in you ended up in the negative.
Because you have been mining on the fork chain it would have looked like you were getting loads of coins much more than you would have got on the real chain as there would be very little competition.
I’m sorry you lost out here due to the switch from Scrypt to NeoScrypt. We really did make every effort to spread the word for everyone to upgrade. And that ASICs can’t be used on Feathercoin anymore. You are not alone in being unhappy with the change as many have a large investment in ASICs but we thought and still think it is the best thing for the coin and the miners. Primarily because of the multi pools that were destroying us.
Don’t loose all hope if you have invested in ASICs you can still make some money back. But you may have to write off the last couple of weeks earnings.
