Want to access my PIVX and haven't used the wallet in quite a while. Its stuck and wont sync. I am stuck on block 1173970 and says its 23 weeks behind. I have tried to do the following-From your wallet's debug console (Tools -> Debug console or just use ./pivx-cli getinfo in linux), type:getinfoNote the block number. ("blocks":) That is the block number that your wallet is currently synced up to.Now type:getblockhash xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the block number you got from getinfo output above. But when I get to 3-it just says Method not found (code -32601)Can anyone help. Not sure what to do or what's going on.
Is this coin still relevant? The only reason is I purchased a wile back and forgot about. after doing a bunch of research it doesn’t seem like there is a good case for the use of PIVX. Compare to Montero or z cash or bitcoin... Can someone help with better research data. It seems it fell from top 10 to top 100.
another beginner question; I dont mean to sound parinoid, I'm just checking my understanding; If a public/private pair is created offline and the public number can have tokens sent to it but for someone to check the balance the they would need to enter the private number into some client, right? This is one of the major differences from bitcoin right? If the private number of lost then then those tokens are lost but since the network has inflation its not determintal to the network. in BTC the number of availabe tokens is decreased permently.
I noticed two blue dots below one, I take that to mean even my wallet has a chance. I havent found a way to earn coin yet. I'm a SW engr but I dont give away my effort for nothing, I'm also not a currency trader so I dont buy or trade; It like in the real world, I need to earn to play. I used a faucet just to get something above zero to better understand how its allto work but that was a huge waste of time for almost nothing.
Thanks, I can always do that, I was hoping that maybe there was a more "pythonic" way. Is there a clearing house someplace for work like this. Is that what the "proposal" system is for. I'm just now starting to study up on that. I dont want to waste time if some other team is already working on this.
So, Dash and Monero are PoW.Monero has a tail emission of 0.6XMR per block. This means miners are always incentivised to verify transactions even if fees are low.PIVX also has a tail emission which is the current phase. This is because we are PoS.PIVX is a fork of Dash which I believe is a fork of Litecoin which is a fork of Bitcoin. We utilise code from a huge range of currencies including Zerocoin.We have no smart contracts haha.
I think of it more as a combine of the three, it uses concepts from each and then adds a few more. The value is in what is added in each step. "forks" and/or combinations that dont add are usually a waste of time and are the real "cash grabs". They dont add value, they harvest value. Its the difference between producing and harvesting. Think of fork code, combine/mix projects, split chains.
After being a longterm pivx holder I got out.Reasons being.- Support on website didnt help me fix my problems. No replies for months.- Client keeps closing out of nowhere.- Never ever been able to get zpiv staking.- Staking rewards are too low- client usage is very user unfriendly- balance +/ - dont show up well after minting zpiv back and forth.- overall unstability and needing to resync and download the blockchain data over and over again loosing time and stakes.I hope this comment can help the team improve this product.I lost faith in the product.Wish you all good luck
