    Masternoob

    So I accidentally removed a chunk of Dash from my masternode (should have used DMT to remove rewards and not Trezor). My question is can I send the 1000 Dash back to the original wallet address? (even though most of the Dash will be coming from that wallet address to start with?) This way I...

    MN not showing on dashninja.pl

    I waited 10 hrs the first time. It's been about 5 hrs now since I deleted my wallet.dat and restarted. Will check again tonight. Thanks.

    MN not showing on dashninja.pl

    I have started my dash masternode using a new wallet/priv key (hardware wallet) but I cannot get it to show on dashninja.pl The node is fully synced with status "999". ./dash-cli masternode status shows "Masternode successfully started". masternodeprivkey is correct. External ip is correct. No...

    Wallet Password Paranoia

    Well it looks like I'm ready to get started. I just wanted to confirm that THIS is the guide to use. Since I already have an MN set up I guess I'll only need to transfer the 1000 dash to Trezor and update the private key in the cfg file on the VPS? Just want to make sure. Even the thought of...

    Wallet Password Paranoia

    It's always nice to get different opinions. I do like the idea of compiling a 100% safe system but I fear this is impossible. People may look at different aspects of an open source OS, but nobody is going to read and intimately understand the whole source. You are always trusting someone at...

    Wallet Password Paranoia

    Thanks guys, you've convinced me to get a hardware wallet. Now to choose between the Trezor and the Keepkey. I can get hold of the Keepkey before Christmas whereas the Trezor will take a few weeks. However, the Trezor does come with the GrandMasterDash sleep at night guarantee :p

    Wallet Password Paranoia

    My wallet has been on so many machines that I'm starting to worry if someone has a copy of it and decides to brute force it. Does the wallet have some kind of protection where you cannot try x amount of passwords per second? What is reasonable length password? 64 random characters? I guess it...

    Inactive After IP Change

    Thanks for the reply. Nope. I ended up resorting to using Ubuntu :( It's a shame it isn't an all in one package for W10. It is just updating now so if this works I guess I'll be sticking with it.

    Inactive After IP Change

    Hi all, I recently changed my masternode ip address, and now for some reason my node always shows inactive on dashninja.pl. I'm starting the node fine with the correct ip and the port shows as open. The debug.log also shows that it is receiving and processing masternode transactions...

    No, because that would have been too easy :p Thanks man, my node is back up and running ;)

    Question about masternode IP changes

    Hi all, My masternode has been up and running fine for a while, but recently my ip address changed and now the node no longer shows up on dashninja.pl. The old ip is still there, however, with "port closed". How long does this take to update? and is there a command to update it by force? since...

    Private Encrypted Email

    PGP is of course the best solution, but since not everyone is computer literate enough to adopt it for every day use I find tutanota the next best thing. I was using protonmail almost since launch but ditched it around the time there were (and still are) concerns about the IDF connection.

    Masternode shutting down after a day

    My masternode keeps shutting down after about a day. It seems to be looking to update the wallet.dat, but since there is no wallet.dat on the server it shuts down. Here is the log: 2014-11-27 01:55:36 Committing 1233 changed transactions to coin database... 2014-11-27 01:55:36 *** System...

    Updated masternodes, now don't seem to show up on Drk. Mn

    I'll try deleting the peers.dat file. It's just strange it showed up on drk.mn for so long. I've been using this set up from the start. I guess I'll look into the local remote setup since I don't feel comfortable leaving wallet file on remote box.

    Updated masternodes, now don't seem to show up on Drk. Mn

    I hadn't touched it for ages so it was a few versions out of date. I just did what I normally do: - Downloaded the new tar.gz. - Stopped darkcoind. - Extracted new version and replaced old darkcoind. - Put wallet file on server. - Started darkcoind and waited for it to catch up block...

    Updated masternodes, now don't seem to show up on Drk. Mn

    Same here. Didn't realise it was a known issue since there are lots of nodes running the latest version which are not disappearing. I reinstalled today and the node showed up for like half a day then disappeared again.

    Ideas to develop Darkcoin.co.uk please?

    drkco.in is currently on freedns.afraid.org (for people who can live without the 'a').

    Amazon S3 encrypts your objects with the custom encryption keys that you provide.

    I think this is more for storage, as opposed to EC2 instances. I prefer it to stuff like dropbox, gdrive, etc. when storing large amounts of goat porn data.

    RC3: Hard Fork on June 20th!

    If you can run a hot wallet then do it but after it's running just delete the wallet file (stop darkcoind, delete wallet, start darkcoind - as chaeplin helped me with earlier in the thread). Obviously have a backup of the wallet first. Version should be 10.10.1

    RC3: Hard Fork on June 20th!

    I meant on remote machine (since now wallet is not needed on node itself).

    RC3: Hard Fork on June 20th!

    Nooby question, but now that my node is running is it ok to delete the wallet file? (I have a backup).

    Sorry I don't know why some of your nodes aren't working, but can you confirm you have 2 working nodes which were started with the "same" wallet?

    I want to speak with the people who pumped DRK up in price.

    Might be one of the exchanges, but I don't think there's any way to tell.

    DRK/USD?

    I am currently making a site which will accept DRK only, but I don't want to link the price to USD. For example most sites give a price in USD and then the crypto amount will vary depending on how much each cryptocoin is worth in USD. In shops, if the value of an item suddenly drops they just...

    I want to speak with the people who pumped DRK up in price.

    It wasn't a pump. I think most people were expecting the price to go up as things such as the darksend beta and the masternode launch were released. If these things had failed then obviously the price would have gone down. It is built on features, not hype.

    How to buy darkcoin?

    You can go from £ to DRK if you use ebay, but you will be paying a huge premium. If you want to buy BTC fast (and without the whole photo id thing) you can try QuickBitcoin. I've used them before and found the service very good. Once you have the BTC you can use Cryptsy or some other exchange...

    Fork to stop masternode payments

    Ok I'm starting to panic now. I updated darkcoind. It stopped updating so I reindexed, but now the balance is showing 0 :| I have a backup of my wallet luckily but why would my balance suddenly disappear? Is it ok to load the backup wallet on a normal client? I haven't done it yet incase it...
