Gridcoin 5.0.0.0-Mandatory "Fern" Release

https://github.com/gridcoin-community/Gridcoin-Research/releases/tag/5.0.0.0
Finally! After over ten months of development and testing, "Fern" has arrived! This is a whopper. 240 pull requests merged. Essentially a complete rewrite that was started with the scraper (the "neural net" rewrite) in "Denise" has now been completed. Practically the ENTIRE Gridcoin specific codebase resting on top of the vanilla Bitcoin/Peercoin/Blackcoin vanilla PoS code has been rewritten. This removes the team requirement at last (see below), although there are many other important improvements besides that.
Fern was a monumental undertaking. We had to encode all of the old rules active for the v10 block protocol in new code and ensure that the new code was 100% compatible. This had to be done in such a way as to clear out all of the old spaghetti and ring-fence it with tightly controlled class implementations. We then wrote an entirely new, simplified ruleset for research rewards and reengineered contracts (which includes beacon management, polls, and voting) using properly classed code. The fundamentals of Gridcoin with this release are now on a very sound and maintainable footing, and the developers believe the codebase as updated here will serve as the fundamental basis for Gridcoin's future roadmap.
We have been testing this for MONTHS on testnet in various stages. The v10 (legacy) compatibility code has been running on testnet continuously as it was developed to ensure compatibility with existing nodes. During the last few months, we have done two private testnet forks and then the full public testnet testing for v11 code (the new protocol which is what Fern implements). The developers have also been running non-staking "sentinel" nodes on mainnet with this code to verify that the consensus rules are problem-free for the legacy compatibility code on the broader mainnet. We believe this amount of testing is going to result in a smooth rollout.
Given the amount of changes in Fern, I am presenting TWO changelogs below. One is high level, which summarizes the most significant changes in the protocol. The second changelog is the detailed one in the usual format, and gives you an inkling of the size of this release.

Highlights

Protocol

Note that the protocol changes will not become active until we cross the hard-fork transition height to v11, which has been set at 2053000. Given current average block spacing, this should happen around October 4, about one month from now.
Note that to get all of the beacons in the network on the new protocol, we are requiring ALL beacons to be validated. A two week (14 day) grace period is provided by the code, starting at the time of the transition height, for people currently holding a beacon to validate the beacon and prevent it from expiring. That means that EVERY CRUNCHER must advertise and validate their beacon AFTER the v11 transition (around Oct 4th) and BEFORE October 18th (or more precisely, 14 days from the actual date of the v11 transition). If you do not advertise and validate your beacon by this time, your beacon will expire and you will stop earning research rewards until you advertise and validate a new beacon. This process has been made much easier by a brand new beacon "wizard" that helps manage beacon advertisements and renewals. Once a beacon has been validated and is a v11 protocol beacon, the normal 180 day expiration rules apply. Note, however, that the 180 day expiration on research rewards has been removed with the Fern update. This means that while your beacon might expire after 180 days, your earned research rewards will be retained and can be claimed by advertising a beacon with the same CPID and going through the validation process again. In other words, you do not lose any earned research rewards if you do not stake a block within 180 days and keep your beacon up-to-date.
The transition height is also when the team requirement will be relaxed for the network.

GUI

Besides the beacon wizard, there are a number of improvements to the GUI, including new UI transaction types (and icons) for staking the superblock, sidestake sends, beacon advertisement, voting, poll creation, and transactions with a message. The main screen has been revamped with a better summary section, and better status icons. Several changes under the hood have improved GUI performance. And finally, the diagnostics have been revamped.

Blockchain

The wallet sync speed has been DRASTICALLY improved. A decent machine with a good network connection should be able to sync the entire mainnet blockchain in less than 4 hours. A fast machine with a really fast network connection and a good SSD can do it in about 2.5 hours. One of our goals was to reduce or eliminate the reliance on snapshots for mainnet, and I think we have accomplished that goal with the new sync speed. We have also streamlined the in-memory structures for the blockchain which shaves some memory use.
There are so many goodies here it is hard to summarize them all.
I would like to thank all of the contributors to this release, but especially thank @cyrossignol, whose incredible contributions formed the backbone of this release. I would also like to pay special thanks to @barton2526, @caraka, and @Quezacoatl1, who tirelessly helped during the testing and polishing phase on testnet with testing and repeated builds for all architectures.
The developers are proud to present this release to the community and we believe this represents the starting point for a true renaissance for Gridcoin!

Summary Changelog

Accrual

Changed

Most significantly, nodes calculate research rewards directly from the magnitudes in EACH superblock between stakes instead of using a two- or three- point average based on a CPID's current magnitude and the magnitude for the CPID when it last staked. For those long-timers in the community, this has been referred to as "Superblock Windows," and was first done in proof-of-concept form by @denravonska.

There are man explanations like this, but this one is mine.
Just in case anyone was curious. I dug up some good posts on this and thought I'd distill it as best I could. I'll be using Windows file separators, but fee free to change them in your head.
If you name a -datadir argument, this is what will land there. If one is not named it defaults to %APPDATA%\Bitcoin
If you name a -blocksdir argument, this is what will land there. If one is not named it defaults to
If you name a -walletdir argument, this is what will land there. If one is not named it defaults to \wallets or just if the wallets subdirectory doesn't exist.
  • \wallet.dat - The wallet file with private keys and UTXOs
  • \db.log - Database log of access to wallet
Note that -datadir, -blocksdir and -walletdir can all point to different storage. The things you need to keep in mind:
  1. -datadir should be your FASTEST storage
  2. -blocksdir should be your LARGEST storage
  3. -walletdir should be your most SECURE storage
As a footnote, -testnet will throw a testnet3\ in everything, and -walletdir would be assumed to refer to test.walletdir

Claiming BCH from my bitcoin core wallet

Hi Guys,

I have a wallet which I've been using from around 2015 with bitcoin core (so its a wallet.dat).

I have spent coins since the split but I had coins at the split time.

Now of course I wish to claim these coins, but I wish to carry on using bitcoin core for btc.

I have installed Electron Cash, created a wallet.

Is it correct that

if I were to get the private keys from bitcoin core with dumpprivkey then enter the output from that command into the sweep window, is this correct?

This will not affect my correct btc held in Bitcoin Core?

This will show the balance I had as of block 478558 in Electron Cash?

Or should I download Bitcoin ABC, and import my Bitcoin Core wallet.dat/copy it over to Bitcoin ABC?(the problem with this is I do not have the resources for all the blocks needed to run a full node for BCH)

Thanks guys.

Need help recovering my Bitcoin change wallet after transaction, only have pre-transaction wallet.dat

Need help recovering my Bitcoin change wallet after transaction, only have pre-transaction wallet.dat
I did some mining back in 2018 that got me 0.3949 BTC. I backed up my wallet in 2018 and have made only one transaction since then on 2 Feb 2019 to Multicards Bitcoin Paygate for a domain purchase for 0.0305 BTC. The transaction was done using Bitcoin Core on one of my Windows PCs. That transaction was successful, I got the domain, and I'm pretty sure I saw the remaining balance of 0.3644 in my Bitcoin Core app. Since 2 Feb 2019, I lost track of that PCs hard drive and I do not recall backing up my wallet after my 2 Feb 2019 transaction. Transaction details here https://www.blockonomics.co/api/tx?txid=ba89799ef6048bcd6d6c20c56772e1d75353a9d47c3bca9830f29433b8acb95e&addr=3Fpr6RfSuH99k7rRSXmgAwKv55zZQY8RnG
I recently reinstalled Bitcoin Core and restored my 2018 wallet.dat backup but my balance is 0.000 BTC. It shows the 2 Feb 2019 transactions to two addresses. I'm assuming one was for the recipient (Multicards) and the other was a change wallet, the larger 0.3644 amount. I'm assuming it is a change account because no other activity as occurred in that wallet since 2 Feb 2019. I need help finding a way to access that change wallet. I've searched for all my wallet.dat files I could find but none of them have the change wallet. I've tried Bitcoin Core's dedug console listaccounts and nothing shows up. I've tried dumpprivkey for my 2018 wallet but not sure what to do with the one line of code it returned. I've tried pywallet --dumpwallet command but the resulting txt file doesn't include the change wallet address.
UPDATE & PROBLEM SOLVED! At time of my post, I was using Bitcoin Core v0.15.1 which was released in November 2017, a full two years before the transaction in question. I updated to the latest Bitcoin Core v0.20.0, did a full sync, and voila, the 0.3644 BTC in the change wallet appears in my total balance (see 3rd screenshot posted). Based on the helpful comments, I think the 2019 transaction put the change in a segwit address which Bitcoin Core v0.15.1 was not able to read. Sorry for wasting everyone's time but I learned to... 1. Use an up to date Bitcoin Core version 2. Backup my wallet.dat after each transaction and note version used in ledger. 3. Stay calm.

Groestlcoin 6th Anniversary Release

Introduction

Dear Groestlers, it goes without saying that 2020 has been a difficult time for millions of people worldwide. The groestlcoin team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone our best to everyone coping with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. Let it bring out the best in us all and show that collectively, we can conquer anything.
The centralised banks and our national governments are facing unprecedented times with interest rates worldwide dropping to record lows in places. Rest assured that this can only strengthen the fundamentals of all decentralised cryptocurrencies and the vision that was seeded with Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper over 10 years ago. Despite everything that has been thrown at us this year, the show must go on and the team will still progress and advance to continue the momentum that we have developed over the past 6 years.
In addition to this, we'd like to remind you all that this is Groestlcoin's 6th Birthday release! In terms of price there have been some crazy highs and lows over the years (with highs of around $2.60 and lows of $0.000077!), but in terms of value– Groestlcoin just keeps getting more valuable! In these uncertain times, one thing remains clear – Groestlcoin will keep going and keep innovating regardless. On with what has been worked on and completed over the past few months.

UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2

This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core with many protocol level improvements and code optimizations, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.18.2 but with Groestlcoin-specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is a new 'Groestlcoin-wallet' tool which is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables.
NOTE: The 'Account' API has been removed from this version which was typically used in some tip bots. Please ensure you check the release notes from 2.17.2 for details on replacing this functionality.

How to Upgrade?

Windows
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer.
OSX
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), run the dmg and drag Groestlcoin Core to Applications.

ALL NEW - Groestlcoin Moonshine iOS/Android Wallet

Built with React Native, Moonshine utilizes Electrum-GRS's JSON-RPC methods to interact with the Groestlcoin network.
GRS Moonshine's intended use is as a hot wallet. Meaning, your keys are only as safe as the device you install this wallet on. As with any hot wallet, please ensure that you keep only a small, responsible amount of Groestlcoin on it at any given time.

ALL NEW! – HODL GRS Android Wallet

HODL GRS connects directly to the Groestlcoin network using SPV mode and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled.
HODL GRS utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user.
Simplicity and ease-of-use is the core design principle of HODL GRS. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a Backup Recovery Key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. HODL GRS is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the backup recovery key.

ALL NEW! – Vanity Search Vanity Address Generator

NOTE: NVidia GPU or any CPU only. AMD graphics cards will not work with this address generator.
VanitySearch is a command-line Segwit-capable vanity Groestlcoin address generator. Add unique flair when you tell people to send Groestlcoin. Alternatively, VanitySearch can be used to generate random addresses offline.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then VanitySearch is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address.
VanitySearch is a groestlcoin address prefix finder. If you want to generate safe private keys, use the -s option to enter your passphrase which will be used for generating a base key as for BIP38 standard (VanitySearch.exe -s "My PassPhrase" FXPref). You can also use VanitySearch.exe -ps "My PassPhrase" which will add a crypto secure seed to your passphrase.
VanitySearch may not compute a good grid size for your GPU, so try different values using -g option in order to get the best performances. If you want to use GPUs and CPUs together, you may have best performances by keeping one CPU core for handling GPU(s)/CPU exchanges (use -t option to set the number of CPU threads).

ALL NEW! – Electrum Personal Server

Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server aims to make using Electrum Groestlcoin wallet more secure and more private. It makes it easy to connect your Electrum-GRS wallet to your own full node.
It is an implementation of the Electrum-grs server protocol which fulfils the specific need of using the Electrum-grs wallet backed by a full node, but without the heavyweight server backend, for a single user. It allows the user to benefit from all Groestlcoin Core's resource-saving features like pruning, blocks only and disabled txindex. All Electrum-GRS's feature-richness like hardware wallet integration, multi-signature wallets, offline signing, seed recovery phrases, coin control and so on can still be used, but connected only to the user's own full node.
Full node wallets are important in Groestlcoin because they are a big part of what makes the system be trust-less. No longer do people have to trust a financial institution like a bank or PayPal, they can run software on their own computers. If Groestlcoin is digital gold, then a full node wallet is your own personal goldsmith who checks for you that received payments are genuine.
Full node wallets are also important for privacy. Using Electrum-GRS under default configuration requires it to send (hashes of) all your Groestlcoin addresses to some server. That server can then easily spy on your transactions. Full node wallets like Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server would download the entire blockchain and scan it for the user's own addresses, and therefore don't reveal to anyone else which Groestlcoin addresses they are interested in.
Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can also broadcast transactions through Tor which improves privacy by resisting traffic analysis for broadcasted transactions which can link the IP address of the user to the transaction. If enabled this would happen transparently whenever the user simply clicks "Send" on a transaction in Electrum-grs wallet.
Note: Currently Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can only accept one connection at a time.

Restoring old wallet

I have an old wallet.dat file from 2013. I downloaded bitcoin core 0.19.0.1 and replaced the wallet file with my old wallet.dat file. Ran bitcoin-qt and got error message mentioning running bitcoin-qt with --reindex command.
I did but I now get a warning regarding clock accuracy (laptop battery is dead so windows messes up the clock sometimes). Clock is correct when running bitcoin-qt so I just click OK on the warning but the syncing and program stop and freeze. When I open bitcoin-qt and quickly go to transactions page, before the clock warning shows up, I can see the 5 transactions from 2013 that should leave some btc in the wallet. How can I recover them?

3rd(?) best day of my life! AMA!

I was sifting through my things in storage. I used to be self employed doing IT consulting. I found my old computer. I thought I might have part of a bitcoin or two on there as I’ve been an avid bitcoin evangelist. So opened up a command prompt and in C:\ typed “dir wallet.dat /a/s” and I found one. So I looked and apparently I had run the windows GUI for bitcoind on this machine at one point.
I opened up the bitcoin GUI and the balance stated: 55. I was confused for a second and asked myself “55? Why does it say 55?” I looked at the transaction log and I saw two things: an entry for having signed a block and a payment of 5 extra BTC.
I live down the street from my parents and I shot up, ran out the door down to my parents house “Dad! Dad! We gotta go, I need you to come to my house right now, don’t worry about shoes!” Being a once in a life time event I felt he could run to my house barefoot and see this with me ... dick move I know! He was excited, he’s one of those guys that got on the hype train at 5500 and threw a couple hundred bucks in lol!
So I grabbed the wallet.dat, threw it up on my “vault” server I run, and waited for it to convert and scan the whole blockchain again. An hour later ... I am surprised I have my fingernails left... I typed “bitcoin getbalance” on my box and sure enough.. “55.00000000”. Pretty sure my right hand still hurts from the high five I gave my dad! I also play Eve Online, and I might have been laughing my ass off and having a great time with my alliance as well ... god I’m a nerd! Went over to my best friend’s house, told her as she has had to suffer through endless bitcoin is great rants, she was like “stfu! No you didn’t! Omfg!”
In the summer of 2010 I was able to sign a block using a Core I7-920, and since it was worth (roughly) 7 cents a bitcoin then, I determined my computer power was better spent doing other stuff and/or not mining. A bit after that I upgraded my 3 drive raid 0 to an SSD and didn’t migrate everything. A couple years back I found a couple wallet.dat files on that SSD but didn’t check the raid array until Friday.
I called my cousin who is a CPA/lawyer, and I told her that I had felt like I had won the lottery and she said to me “every time I hear about bitcoin I think of you, you didn’t win the lottery, you were Into it before the hype, you knew what it was when other people thought it was and still think it is weird. The real thing is you’re lucky because you forgot about it!” This week, I’m going to pay off my house/cacredit cards, put at least 150k into a college fund for my two boys, start looking into paying my taxes and you know pinching myself to make sure I’m not dreaming!
While I should HODL... I have cashed out most of them ... I feel like not having a mortgage payment was a huge plus. And by the way, Bitcoin Cash and the other forks... bless your hearts! The day my two boys were born were the two best days of my life! Merry-f’ing-Christmas!
:edit: Now that I've dumped the wallet and things have been transfered.... not a shit post(?) lol
https://blockchain.info/address/1EfC5cAuagHguQzGdFNebuZS2zsvmWsbPC
:second edit:
I'd be just as skeptical on the internet as some of the people on here so...
Generation Address: 1EfC5cAuagHguQzGdFNebuZS2zsvmWsbPC
Signature: HGifhaImWOrhM/04LcjY94YBFxrba1G3lIRTUQUWPQs3RtEZGNXDnzzp6hQYc+gR4SuJKLDPrhU6xhAfL1TedNs=
Signed Message: https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/18qy88/bitcoin_message_signing_and_verification/ 3rd best day!
So you can verify it with something like this:
bitcoin-cli verifymessage 1EfC5cAuagHguQzGdFNebuZS2zsvmWsbPC HGifhaImWOrhM/04LcjY94YBFxrba1G3lIRTUQUWPQs3RtEZGNXDnzzp6hQYc+gR4SuJKLDPrhU6xhAfL1TedNs= "https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/18qy88/bitcoin_message_signing_and_verification/ 3rd best day!"
Pretty sure that verifies it was my wallet :)

Long time BTC hodler needs help with claiming fork airdrops

I haven't touch my BTC for a long time but due to tax reasons (not an US citizen) it's a good time for me to claim and sell the different air drops/forks that are available before end of December this year, especially BCH and BSV. Yes, I know I'm late to the game but my BTC holdings are a long bet and I don't easily risk or touch them.
I've read a lot of threads and guides on BCH/BSV splitting but haven't found all answers I need, so here it goes. Any help is appreciated!
Some background info: MY BTC UTXOs are from 2013 and early 2017 and are in a Bitcoin Core 0.19.0.1 wallet.dat (Windows). For preparation I have just moved all my UTXO's to a completely new Bitcoin Core wallet.dat and made several backups of the two wallet.dat files both before and after I moved the UTXOs.

Question 1) Running Bitcoin ABC wallet 0.20.7 with the original BTC wallet.dat displays the correct number of BCH available for me to transfer where i want. Can I safely transfer all those UTXOs from Bitcoin ABC wallet 0.20.7 to my Exchange (Bittrex) without risking the transaction to replay on the BSV chain?

Question 2) If the answer to question 1 above is no - From what I understand from all guides and other threads I've read (although some of them are old) I should import the private keys from Bitcoin ABC wallet in to Electron Cash.
I read that the Electron Cash 3.3.4CS is no longer recommended for splitting and latest version only supports BCH. So my guess is I should use Electron Cash 4.0.12 from https://electroncash.org/ and Electrum SV 1.2.5 from https://electrumsv.io ? Is that correct?
Is the following a correct procedure? (or is there an simpleother method?)
a. Move all BTC UTXOs in Bitcoin Core wallet to a new wallet.dat DONE
b. Import old BTC wallet.dat to Bitcoin ABC wallet. (Full amount of BCH are displayed) DONE
c. dumpprivatekey command in Bitcoin ABC wallet
d. Import the private key in to Electron Cash 4.0.12
e. Buy some BCH on Bittrex and send it to the Electron Cash address
f. Send entire BCH to Bittrex (and sell for BTC....)
g. Import the private key in to Electrum SV 1.2.5
h. Send entire BSV to Bittrex (and sell for BTC....)

Question 3) Are there any other forks worth claiming (for immediately selling) and are fairly easy to self extract non custodial? I hold exchange accounts at Bittrex and Poloniex so the forks should be available to sell there. I do not want to go through the hassle and privacy risks of registering yet another KYC account unless the fork reward is substantial.
Cheers!

(Updated) [Staking] Reddcoin Core client GUI wallet on a Raspberry Pi Model 3B

Intro

This thread is an update to my first Reddcoin staking tutorial that was written 7 months ago.
 
The reason for the update
My Reddcoin Core software crashed and became unusable. My Raspberry Pi 3B would lag and freeze, I couldn't stake anymore.
 
Instead of just redoing everything the same way, I wanted to see if I could improve on 3 points:
 
The updates
 
If you would like to tip me
Writing a tutorial like this takes time and effort; tips are appreciated. My Reddcoin address: RqvdnNX5MTam855Y2Vudv7yVgtXdcYaQAW.
     

Overview

 

Steps

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
     

Video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Snr5e8bzftI
This video shows how long it takes to start Reddcoin Core.   TL;DR:
     

Extra

Backup
Backup your wallet to prevent losing the RDDs in your wallet! There are two methods to backup, do both. Make new backups if you create a new receiving address!
 
 
   
Boot with only 1 USB drive plugged in:
Make sure only the USB drive (with the swap partition and data partition) is plugged in when you boot up your Raspberry Pi. This to make sure the swap partition (/dev/sda1) is recognized correctly.   If you boot up with multiple USB drives, Lubuntu might see the USB drive with the swap partition as the second drive (instead of the first drive), and ignore the 2 GB swap partition. If this happens, starting Reddcoin can render the Raspberry Pi unresponsive.
   
Connection issues If you have issues syncing the blockchain because you have 0 network connections, please follow the instructions in this thread.
   
Start Reddcoin Core easier
Run a shell script (.sh file), so you can start Reddcoin just by double clicking on an icon on your Desktop.
   
Minimization options
Adjust minimization options, so you can safely press on the X button (the close/exit button on the upper right corner).
   
RealVNC VNC Viewer (client) and VNC Connect (server): To remote connect to the Raspberry Pi, I use VNC Viewer ad VNC Connect from RealVNC.
 
   
Chromium as browser: The updates break Firefox, the browser crashes when you try to run it. Install another browser, Chromium, to solve this issue.
   
Updates / Upgrades
If Software Updater shows up and tells you that there is updated software available, do not install the updates using Software Updater. Use LXTerminal to update Lubuntu.

(Upvote to the top) > SOLUTION FOR ZCLASSIC Eleos Wallet: "Wallet daemon can not be run. Check if daemon does not already run"

So I noticed a lot of people recently (including myself) are experiencing the error "Wallet daemon can not be run. Check if daemon does not already run" when trying to open up their ZCL Eleos wallet, and people are unable to access their funds or cannot export their private keys as well. A solution to this is now official (thanks to JBrutWhat from the BTCP team for helping me out on this.) Note: Post is being edited as more info becomes available to me.
This solution also works for users who are on the ZClassic Swing wallet experiencing the error "A general unexpected critical error has occurred: error: Couldn't connect to server, see the console output for more detailed error information!."
Eleos Wallet Troubleshooting section
ZClassic Electrum Wallet
  1. Create a new standard wallet and restore the 2FA wallet using your "seed" codes. DO NOT password protect this wallet.
  2. Disable the 2FA feature when presented with the option.
  3. Navigate to C:/Users/YOUR-NAME/AppData/Roaming/Electrum-zcl/wallets. Open the new standard wallet file with Notepad.
  4. You will need to gather the 2 private keys and one public key. To find this easily, press “CTRL+F” and search for “xprv”. Copy the 2 “xprv” values as well as the last “xpub” value. You will need these in a later step.
  5. Create a new “Multi-signature wallet”. Select “From 3 co-signers” on the first slider. Select “Require 2 signatures” on the second slider.
  6. To add the first co-signer, click “Use public or private keys”. Enter the first xprv key in this box.
  7. Add the second co-signer via a private key also.
  8. Add the third co-signer with the public key. Complete the set-up.
  9. Your wallet funds now have the ability to be sent from the multi-signature wallet.
For Users who were already using the Electrum wallet beforehand, you can go to file > new/restore wallet > next > import zclassic private keys and input the private key you obtained from the walletaid tool, and it should import the wallet into the electrum wallet. Then from there, go to file > backup wallet and export a copy of the wallet.dat file onto an offline USB.
Reminder: Backup and delete the private keys file from your desktop pc/hard drive, move it into an offline USB for safekeeping. Do not leave it on an online device.
Donate to me if you found the guide useful! Your donations 100% voluntary but they are greatly appreciated and keep us going!

[PSA] Dogecoin Wallet version 1.4 released. You must update.

WARNING: DO NOT send your wallet.dat file or dogecoin folder to anyone. There have been reports of people offering to help others by asking them to send their files to them so they can help. DO NOT do this. Scam attempt picture
Always encrypt your wallet! I can't express this enough. You should use a strong password longer than 15 characters. This password should contain numbers, symbols, and some capitalization! There is no need to have your wallet open 24 hours a day. Open it only when you need it. See - 'Getting Started' on the side bar.
This entire post has been written to be as close to ELI5 (Explain it like I'm 5) as possible - By request! If anyone wants to add/fix/correct anything in this message, please send a message to the mods <<-- Click blue text.
All blue text in this post can be clicked on. The blue text is a link to a picture, site or download file.
A very important message/reminder below.
25 Jan 1.5 pre-releases have started.
http://www.reddit.com/dogecoin/comments/1uhpwf/dogecoin_for_mac_14_topic_thread/
OLD VERSIONS The 1.4 update for the dogecoin wallet has been released. This update addresses the block chain error that occurred. This update is mandatory meaning you have to do this update. Also further down the page you can read up about the block chain. You MUST make sure you're on the correct block chain and the old block chain has been removed.
For a Windows computer the version must be 1.4. - 1.4.1 just released! See below
For a Apple Mac Computer the version must be 1.4
Download links:
[Windows Download Link](https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin/releases/download/1.4/dogecoin-qt-v14-Win.zip) <<--Click to start download
Windows Download Link 1.4.1 UPDATED 19JAN
Mac Download Link <<--Click to start download
Mac users can join this thread if there are any problems
Android (phone): Please see This post
To update, simply download the new version from the download link above. Open the downloaded file and extract the contents of the downloaded file into any new folder or location on your computer. If you put the files into a folder you can name the folder anything you want but make sure you remember that this is the latest version of the software.
You don't have to remove your folder containing the old version of the wallet. You can place it in a folder called 'Old versions of dogecoin wallet' if you like.
Now you can click on the Dogecoin icon contained in the new folder to open your version 1.4 wallet.
What happens if I get an error when I open the new wallet?
An error was reported called "11DbException"
If this happens Download this file and place it in the same folder as your updated wallet. Open the file you just downloaded called "Dogecoin OPEN' and wait. This might take 2 or 3 minutes.
Also jtlarousse has found a solution that worked on Windows. Please follow carefully and make backups before starting.
Reebzy might have found a solution for Apple Mac
Blockchain fork 101: The block chain is a ledger or document created containing every transaction that has ever happened. This file can be quite large. Bitcoins ledger is over 15GB. At some point this document/ledger split into two separate documents known as a fork.
How do I know if I am on the right block chain?
Go to your newly updated dogecoin wallet and open it. Click on Help>>Debug next Observe the current block number
*Note the example numbers in the pictures might be out of date by the time you read them
Now go over to http://dogechain.info/chain/Dogecoin . This website is the official Dogecoin blockchain website. Check the block number they're reporting
The number you found in your wallet and the number reported on the website should close. There might be a difference of 100 blocks depending on when you last refreshed your wallet or how long it took for you to get from one step to the next step in this guide and if the dogechain website is lagging.
I'M NOT ON THE CORRECT BLOCK CHAIN
My numbers are very different. How do I get back onto the right block chain?
IMPORTANT
For windows:
1)Close down the Dogecoin wallet client.
2)Go to your data folder: C:\Users[your windows log-in name]\AppData\Roaming\DogeCoin
3)Delete the Dogecoin.conf file. Do not delete the wallet.dat file!
4)Download this update file and place it into the Dogecoin folder where the other file was deleted.
For Apple Mac:
1)Close down the Dogecoin wallet client.
2)Go to your data folder: ~/Libarary/Application Support/Dogecoin
3)Delete the Dogecoin.conf file. Do not delete the wallet.dat file!
4)Download this update file and place it into the Dogecoin folder where the other file was deleted.
Next visit this post by Netcodepool for instructions on how to manually download the correct block chain and install it.
Much Thanks. 
Edit: Some posts were removed from this thread. To limit confusion.
Check this post for details about mining pools that were/are using the wrong fork.
Did you send coins only to find out you're on the wrong chain? See this post to get them back
An Apple Mac support thread has been made by voidref (The mac developer). If you're having troubles please see this thread
Some shibes have reported their wallets wont sync. Please check to make sure your firewall, antivirus, malware scanner or similar programs are not blocking it the wallet. You can add rules to these programs to allow the wallet to make contact with the internet. It's not advised but possible to also disable the software for a short amount of time. Don't forget to enable the software again afterwards.
Is your wallet crashing? Try this helpful tip from gandhikahn or if you're using windows try the 1.4.1 update above.

Opening an old wallet

Hi,
I'm trying to see what's in a wallet of mine I had saved a few years ago. All I have is a "Bitcoin" folder on Windows. It contains a wallet.dat, a blocks and a chainstate folder, and is very light (75mb).
I don't know what program was used, but I think it was the official Bitcoin client that was offered at this time (I don't really know when it was, between 2 and 5 years ago).
How do I open this wallet and see the current balance ?
Do I need to download the 223Gb from Bitcoin Core for this ?
I don't know the passphrase if there was one, but I have some guesses I could try.

Attempting to recover the old wallet part 2

If you remember, I was trying to recover an old wallet in this post:
https://www.reddit.com/litecoin/comments/9i3ijb/found_my_old_litecoin_wallet_and_it_may_save_my/
I had basically given up and then I found the original litecoin.dat file a couple of days ago and decided to attempt it once again.
Here is my current problem. I install the new Litecoin software, then delete the existing wallet and copy my old wallet in (and change the name to wallet.dat). However it now seems as though it doesn't actually import the wallet but is merely wiping it out completely - don't worry I have like five backups now.
Are there old windows binaries that I could download? I could try it on Linux but the required files are all out of date for a wallet with a date of January 2014.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated once again.

EDIT: It's been a little over a week and here are the things I have tried.
  1. Complete reinstall of blockchain, app, etc. - RESULT: When I replace wallet .dat with my renamed litecoin.dat is acts as though there is nothing there. However, I have pulled keys from it that don't import into anything I can find and it will unlock using the walletpassphrase command from the debug console.
  2. using bitcoinj - RESULT: I'm so lost, I can't even begin to know where to start
  3. using the tools here https://vicente-hernando.appspot.com/bitcoin-wallet-encrypt-decrypt-cipher - RESULT: It appears that you need to know all of the private keys and I am not sure this is viable. Also, while his English is good I was unable to understand some of the commands.
  4. using Wallet Key Tool https://github.com/prof7bit/wallet-key-tool/releases - RESULT: It doesn't really work with Litecoin all that well. There were about a hundred keys in there but none had dates or balances associated. I was at least able to verify that the password I have for the wallet does work.
  5. attempted to recover with "wallet-recover" as shown here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2668480.0 - RESULT: I get an error ./wallet-recover: 1: ./wallet-recover: Syntax error: "(" unexpected

I'm not really sure where to go next with this. I feel like I'm moving backwards now.

Zcash4win & Zcash4mac MEGATHREAD

This thread is for users to find information that is spread across many threads since zcash4win and zcash4mac are now depreciated.
What happened:
David Mercer the developer who worked on zcash4win and zcash4mac has decided stop allowing downloads of these (which are stuck on old versions) so it doesn't confuse new users since they not up-to-date. David is not part of Zcash Company and his software is open source. The only "Official" Zcash software is the Linux version.
Why
Rather than continue to update the zcash4win and zcash4mac code he has decided to create new wallet/node software from the ground up so it will be a better codebase/GUI and easier to update for the future. The new version will be called "winzec" and available at winzec.com when it is done.
What does this mean for zcash4win and zcash4mac users?
If you are currently running zcash4win or zcash4mac you don't need to do anything. The zcash4win and zcash4mac are just not available to download, they will continue to work until the Hard Fork expected in a few months.
Are the funds I have in zcash4win or zcash4mac lost?
No, remember the way all Blockchains like Zcash and Bitcoin work is that coins are on the Blockchain at all times. Your wallet has the Public and Private keys that allow you to spend from the addresses you control.
Help my wallet won't start!
Since the zcash4win version is version 1.0.12 (and the latest version is 1.0.15) you need to add disabledeprecation=1.0.12 to the configuration file as explained in this thread: https://forum.z.cash/t/required-config-change-for-zcash4win-1-0-12/26632
There is a Video of how to do this Here: https://youtu.be/VT06Nh6TTzw
This will keep the node from auto-depreciation and allow you to still use it until a the new version comes out or the Hard Fork when you will need to switch wallets.
If you do the above steps and it still won't sync you may have to reindex your chain:
Open a Command window and try:
C:\Program Files\zcash4win\app\zcashd.exe -reindex -daemon=0
NOTE: The above line is just an example and will need to be tweaked depending on your computers users/app location/etc..
If you are not familiar with how to run something from a Command line please see this tutorial: https://m.wikihow.com/Run-a-Program-on-Command-Prompt
What if I want to switch wallets?
To switch wallets you first need to determine if you want to use or have funds in a private address.
If you don't have funds in a private address and don't want to use private addresses then you can transfer your funds to many other wallets like Jaxx or a hardware wallet like a Ledger Nano.
I have a list of wallets here: https://www.zcashcommunity.com/wallets/
If you do have funds in a private address and don't want to send them to a transparent address read on:
Step 1 is setting up a new full node. You can install the Zcash Official Linux Client via this guide: https://github.com/zcash/zcash/wiki/1.0-User-Guide
There are several Videos on how install Zcash on Linux here:
https://youtu.be/5ahQZZYcntQ https://youtu.be/9-P7IHC7d-o https://youtu.be/noiPWhPT6sk
I have an very old written step-by-step tutorial about how to set up a VM and install Linux & Zcash here: https://minezcash.com/how-to-mine-zcash-part1/ (just ignore the last "mining steps)
Step 2 Is once you have a new Node running you have two choices: You can generate a new address to send the funds to the new wallet or transfer the wallet.dat file to the new node.

The best part about running a the official client is that you can update as soon as an update is available directly from the Zcash developers! No more waiting for third party developers to push an update.
While you are here, take a second to backup your wallet.dat file to somewhere safe, preferably offline or on a separate computeUSB so in case of disaster you won't lose everything.

New wallet upgrade! Sorry, yes another but with good reason :)

Hi All,
There is a new wallet upgrade from the stable v.3.0.4RC2 to v.3.0.4RC3, this is a mandatory update.
Why the change? This wallet has some key tweeks that will ensure the stability of the network going forward. Namely while invalid blocks are no longer being accepted, they were still being broadcasted across the network. This latest release candidate will ensure that this no longer happens and help increase the efficiency of our network.
NOTE: If you're on the correct chain and on RC2, you will not have to update or resync your blockchain, just simply use the new installer found here.
Release notes:
How to update:
  1. Go here and download your version of PIVX Core Wallet 3.0.4RC3
  2. Run the installer
  3. Continue staking
If you're on a forked chain or unsure, follow this link to check: Am I Forked?
If you are forked, please follow these steps.
  1. Go to your PIVX Data directory (where your wallet.dat files are stored) and delete, "Chainstate" and "Blocks"
    1.1 (Optional - Technical users) Download the latest snapshot here - unzip with 7zip in windows
    1.2 (Optional - Technical users) Also delete "zerocoin" and "sporks"
    1.3 (Optional - Technical users) Place the folders from the download, into your PIVX data directory
  2. Install PIVX Core Wallet 3.0.4RC3
  3. Start the wallet
  4. Allow it time to sync (from block 0, this will take a number of hours)
  5. Unlock your wallet for staking
-------------------------Why you should help-------------------------
NOTE: DO NOT SEND PIV INTO OR OUT OF AN EXCHANGE
EDIT 2: If you have missing zPIV from 3.0.0, please see this guide as your first step to retrieving them.
