Mixing works, until denominations needs confirmation,
but transactions still do not confirm in the next block, so its slow...

And i need to use reindex every day in the first start...

EDIT: added pic, note connections 34.

Does this help to denom not confirm problem?
Nope, it helps to keep connections number reasonable. About "denom not confirm" - miners have to include dstx into the block and there is not much we can do to force them without breaking a consensus imo.

Are you saying if all miners go to update their wallets, problem solved?

No, I'm saying that miners/pools see some transactions and choosing which one to include. By default they just include everything valid because actually it doesn't matter which txes to include while they are valid. BUT nothing stops them from generating empty blocks all the time for example. In a healthy network however this means that such a pool actually do damage to network (because who needs a network with no transactions enabled?) and miners who care about network health should probably leave such pool. But you can't easily say "hey, all of you (who?), you have to include this tx in the block" without facing many issues.
Not sure why we have so many unconfirmed on testnet though...

I wonder this also, because this problem is not so old and it is appeared only about last 7 days.
Earlier this was not a problem, i am quite sure its about code changes, just my 2 duffs.

I stuck a little hash power on, it seems to have cleared most of the unconfirms, the others I zapped away ..

Yep, zap and reindex helps, but its not right if you have to do this every time you start wallet.

Awesome video, love it. I also had many unconfirmed, conflicted transactions on my two wallets but this was due to the fork we were having, some of the transactions went off on a different chain. Even the two explorers weren't at the same block height earlier if you noticed. The devs are trying to figure out what's causing the forks.

Thanks, lets hope they find and fix that bug quick.

I hope so too. I just did "sendtoaddressix" to someone and on my wallet all of those tx's got confirmed quickly but they're now conflicted on his wallet.

I think next important thing for DASH would be faster blockchain synchronization.

Full nodes could work as Reseed. Its quite frustrating that on a 1 Gbit/s network it takes years to download the blockchain.

eventhough wallets are up to date the "out of sync message" still shows in the wallets and only clears after 30 seconds / 60 seconds, could be a bit faster to avoid confusion.
Ideally the moment the wallet gets fully synced the message about out of sync should disappear.

I have been doing some mixing and its actually a joy to see so many DS transactions get steadily (and fast) confirmed, we will need to observe it some more but its looking good so far..

I don't know what you are refering to with "years", but last time i checked my mainnet wallet synced in 30mins.

Full nodes are reseeds per definition.

my friend has been downloading blockchain on his VPS for past 3 hours using dashd. Its not even at %1 yet.

They're really good reseeds indeed, because never download at MAX speed.

my friend has been downloading blockchain on his VPS for past 3 hours using dashd. Its not even at %1 yet.
Then his VPS has performance issues (CPU/network load). I am running several nodes on dedicated hardware and 100Mbit uplink and it syncs in 30mins.

Best your friend downloads the bootstrap and syncs from there. --> https://github.com/UdjinM6/dash-bootstrap
