Still testing on the OSX wallet. What is the Darksend Collateral Payment? This wallet seems to be stuck taking fee's over and over. Left it open for more then 24 hours and stuck at 2.89 out of 4 rounds. I will update to the newest version and try again.
see post 1 of Evan :

Note: Let me know if you get a collateral payment. Please send me the debug.log and wallet.dat if you do to [email protected]

edit : pls mention yr wallet version

That is a lot of them "United States". Isn't hosting there expensive, like you have to pay for bandwidth? I think it would make a lot more sense to host in Europe, for example ecatel.info offers a dedicated server(Windows or Linux) with 10 TB Bandwidth included for 40 EUR/month. Yes, a dedicated server for 40 EUR/month not a VPS, crazy right?

I can't wait for more updates from Darkcoin team. The RC5 has that - "Darkcoin is not just another altcoin" to it. Good bye, Litecoin.

Amazon t1.micro spot instances are available for a decent price of $2.50/month - and testnet masternodes don't consume much bandwidth :)

Arent t1.micro discontinued and replaced by the much better t2.micro? Yeah, I think t1's are gone.
The other day Amazon did not let me make an instance because they had run out of resources in some region... cant remember which. Switching regions fixed it.

I also had no idea you could migrate instances between regions, tungfa told me about that... very cool...

Depending on the AMI and region used both are available :)

Both being free tier eligible, why would someone go for a t1 ... even after a year a later, 1 MN payment covers a whole month, and we dont know what MN's will be able to do in the "near" future.
Yeah, I'm just using Ubuntu 14, and since the email roll-out about t2, I have never encoutered t1's.... anyways, this is side track talk.

Have I told you lately that I love you guys? I remember testnet being only 4 or 5 ex-LTC idiots... :D

Windows wallet v10.13.3 with new wallet. Got 3000 tdrk from faucet. 8 rounds, 1000 to be anonymized. After approx. 6 hours, the anonymizing is done but this is what it looks like on my wallet:

upload_2014-9-6_8-22-36.png

And the process was charged with 18 transaction fees:

Is this normal?

From looking at coin control while it is denominating this is my understanding of the process...

Darksend seems like it splits your money into groups of 900 (or less) and denominates them. 1459 would break into a group of 900 and a group of 559. For each group you need 8 denominate fees as you set 8 rounds thus you have a total of 16 of those fees. As for the 2 "payments to yourself" that have fees attached... that is for splitting up each of those two groups in to the (10,50,100, etc) for the coinjoin mixing.

Also don't forget that the 1000 you set in the options is a minimum value. The client will make sure you have at least 1000 anonymized coins. Technically, it could anonymize 100 or even 1000 more based on your available inputs.

In short, everything looks OK to me. Someone from the dev team correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you for your explanation. I'm just curious why it says 99%. The second group didn't get a complete 8 rounds but still got anonymized? Thanks again.

What does coin control look like? Since you only know that it is going to anonymize more than 1000 coins but not the actual number there many be another 10-15 coins that will be added to your anonymized balance when they reach 8 rounds.

- check if your on wallet version 0.10.13.3 through help - debug. make sure you created a new wallet while using this latest wallet version.

- set your amount to anonymize a bit higher to test if that starts the denominate's

Yes to both.
I have been changing settings while the darksend process is active, I for example set the amount to anonymize to 2000 tDRK the process started normally, then moved the setting down to just 1tDRK, before I had any actual anon coins, the process just stopped and stayed idle for hours until I raised the amount again and then it started again. To me that was the expected behaviour although the soft limit is a little bit confusing. Also suspending the computer at different times, didnt produce collateral charges I guess that is good?

What I am really wondering now is how it will work with small wallets, lets say you have 45 DRK and want to mix 5DRK, maybe below a certain threshold you should be forced to anonymize your full balance. Anyway, if DRK price keeps rising smaller wallets will be more common so I will concentrate my testing efforts there.

Yes to both.
okay lets get some details :

- Total Balance of yr wallet
- Amount of Darkcoin to keep anonymized
- Pic of your coin control inputs on List Mode
- Pic of yr transactions
- number of Darksend Rounds set for yr wallet (i think you mentioned 8?)
- confirm Darksend status : enabled

you can also try the following :

disable darksend
close wallet
re-open wallet
set Amount of Darkcoin to keep anonymized to halve of your Total Balance
enable darksend

edit : if that doesnt work try what kryptofoo did .. disable darksend, send all yr coins to yrself.
then enable it again.

I had to send all my coins to myself again to get the darksend process running. Now it seems to be working normally. Hopefully the average enduser wont have to deal with annoyances like that.

OK, finally got a testnet wallet up and running! I too will be concentrating on smaller amounts being the optimist that I am feeling that DRK will be moon-bound shortly.. :D Smaller wallets will be the norm amongst regular folk.

I don't want to try anonymizing a bunch of coins, I want to do a small amount because everyone else is testing larger amounts.

- Total Balance of yr wallet - 2499
- Amount of Darkcoin to keep anonymized - 50
- Pic of your coin control inputs on List Mode
- Pic of yr transactions
- number of Darksend Rounds set for yr wallet (i think you mentioned 8?) - 6
- confirm Darksend status : enabled - Yes

i do think the problem is with the Amount of Darkcoin to keep anonymized - 50 when you have a large amount (2499 in yr case)
try raising to 150 to see if that kickstart anything .. then work back to see where exactly it stops working.
We can make a bug report then.

A couple of points:

- The popup window to de-encrypt wallet says "this operation" requires wallet unlocking, it should say "Darksend preparation" or other terminology requires unlocking so that the user knows what's happening when he/she enters their password.

- n/a's in the overview window should be changed to better describe what is happening behind the scenes.

Set to 100 without sending the coins to myself, got my first darksend denominate. Wonder if there is a threshold that as a percentage of the total balance is too small to initiate. Might be worth others trying to replicate smaller thresholds as well as it will take time going through rounds.
