"timeoffset" : 0,
"connections" : 11,
"proxy" : "",
"difficulty" : 612.39358402,
"networkhashps" : 30532269997, about 30GH/s

Chain number 2
"blocks" : 207193,
"timeoffset" : 0,
"connections" : 11,
"proxy" : "",

What is the block hash for 207179 and 207193?
My three daemons are all at 207199 now.

darkcoind getblockhash 207179

P2Pool seems to be a little messed up right now too.

Global Pool Hashrate:1.01 GH/s (Rejected 395.67 MH/s / 39.19%)

Funny little side note:

My darkcoind reports block 207223, my blockchain-explorer (who uses the same(!) blockchain) reports 207266.

I wonder where my Abe gets the blocks from :rolleyes:

I have some darkcoin at block 207097 not showing at the exchange, didn't stonehedge say that he had the same happen,
Have the coins gone forever if they were sent onto the wrong fork ? (assuming not exchange fault), they are showing in the chainz darkcoin explorer as sent.
I don't want to cause alarm but I may or may not have 100DRK unaccounted for. This is clouded by the fact that I was in the middle of a 2000DRK betting spree on Directbet and numbers were beginning to blur. I know that I was expecting a balance of 1,000 DRK after a win and then I place a 100DRK bet that came up as a "conflicted" but showed by balance at 900DRK. When I finally managed to shift this conflict by zapping the wallet i *think* the balance was deducted (still 900DRK). It certainly wasn't received by Directbet according to the blockchain.

Take my account as annecdotal at best. I was in an irresponsible gambling hazed zone. :eek:

EDIT: I've got a big day at work today but will do my best to investigate this as much as I can.

Stonehedge, please calm down with your betting,You don't want to lose multiple masternodes over at directbet there!!

If the exchange's wallet is not upto date, it is more likely to fork on their end presumably.

What's the advise until this issue is resolved, not to move any coins? Did it come about from rushing the latest v.11 release rather than giving it time to be properly tested on the test net? BTC-Talk forum seems to be down and my MN list is showing up as blank on ninja though some rewards are still coming in it appears.

Is the situation serious enough to wake up Evan the Fork Slayer?

I haven't seen any official advice but it is night time for Evan at the moment. I won't be moving any coins in the meantime personally.

As to root cause, there seems to be two camps. One camp says that the fork was caused by everybody not updating to v11 quickly enough. The other camp says that V11 wasn't ready for release because it turned a stable network into an unstable one.

I guess we just have to wait for Evan to wake up and direct us what to do.

Looks like it might be a blessing BCT is down!
Can we agree not to discuss this on the BCT thread? Would make ALOT of sense I feel.

Ninja is stuck at some block, I forced my daemon to continue working, but of course I don't know if it works on the correct chain.

If you want to see if your nodes are still visible from the outside you can check here: http://178.254.18.153/~pub/Darkcoin/masternode_locations.html, that's what my daemon sees.

This!

Many thanks for all the input, I'll check back in tomorrow or sometime after my flight, I won't be moving any coins until it's been sorted out.

Some what related, what ended up happening with the buy wall on Bitfinex? Doesn't look like yours currently at 666 with 9134 was sold into from 45k. The volume just isn't there at that price.

I think the network is starting to sort itself out, I'm no longer getting errors and can use "masternode count" and "masternode list" again. drk.mn needs to reindex as it looks like it's on the wrong chain.

Just took another screenshot of the network traffic:

It seems the network is not forking anymore but why does it still look so red?

Can you explain what red and green colours mean? I have no clue what I am looking at but I would really like to know :)

Green is data received to your QT and red is data transmitted from your QT.

You'd expect to see a lot of green when downloading the blockchain for example.

Hm... So it doesn't mean it's showing the current status of the whole network?
I thought Green is when the network is healthy and Red means there's trouble.

Nope, it's just downloads and uploads.

Barrr:D The darkcoin that got 'lost' going to bter have turned up in the wallet there, its never took nearly 24 hours before, would a wallet update on their behalf bring back the coins from a fork or poor network propagation perhaps?

Hey, you're lucky it turned up there... I was so afraid many people were losing their DRKs to the abyss.. or dishonest exchanges...
IMHO, it's not a good idea to do transactions while the network is unstable, but how do we know when it's unstable.. :/

I do think I lost 100DRK in a transaction a few days ago. I wonder if it'll turn up at destination or back in my wallet...

EDIT: No, neither in wallet or at Directbet. Perhaps I was just mistaken.
