DATA FOLDER LOCATION CHANGE
The steps are mentioned in the previous message to F L above and have been tested on Linux but in a peculiar contest.
If anybody has followed them, in particular on other OSes (Windows/MAC), please either confirm it worked for you or what modifications were needed to make them work or if you got stuck.
Thank You! 🙏🏽
Maybe let me rephrase my question - I am currently running my client in a RPI..and if I understand correctly..my Pivx should be stored in the .dat backup file right. So now I decided to access my Pivx using my windows laptop..can I copy the .dat file and paste in my windows client and see my Pivx in my windows client?
I feel the same. What I’ve done for security was built a new PC, installed a fresh version of Windows 10, and only use it for wallets. (No browsing internet, installing apps, etc.) Keep it as clean as possible. These days, anything you can imagine, there are bugs to do it...
is pivx going to get some exposure and marketing and try to be well known in future such as monero zcash dash? im not asking if it will be as expensive, just that it will be known. i want to invest because it looks to have a bright future but if nobody knows about it, i dont see the price going up
No problem, don't worry. If anybody knows about that coin and feel to reply, they can do so. Just generally we feel uncomfortable to make those comparison and as said we'd like to stay focused on doing good with our PIVX, possibly.
Of course, if other coins/communities etc. have some great ideas and innovation that we should pick up or share, we are open to do so. So far, though, it has been mostly the others copying us.
P.S. For the records, your PGP key, if you've made one, is like your public/private address. It allows you to encrypt and decrypt communications, files etc. ....in this case, email communications/email sent to the forum.
It stands for Pretty Good Privacy.
I just tried to send PIV using the SWIfTX feature! I couldn’t believe it! By the time I finished logging in to the exchange to check if it (shows up, then confirm), it was already confirmed and ready to be traded! This is exactly how a currency should work. Excellent job by the developers! Is this feature available in the mobile app as well?
No, we are not related to BTC but the market follows its own dynamics. Big numbers come from those who see cryptos as a big pool where to move their money.
Unfortunately, being able to buy PIVX directly wont' change that much because Coinmarketcap (et al) won't include zDEX or Unity or Anycoin Direct into their price calculations.
Having said that, we have seen that last year, the very first year of PIVX (with that name, at least), it grew more than any other coin bar one.
I think I said this hundred times in the past: in order to have a solid, resilient project you do NOT want PIVX to grow too much too fast. You want slow, paced growth. IMO, of course.
This look good bud, but, what woild be the best OS for staking? Currently i stack on windows 10, i hate it, as windows feom time to time update itself and restarts my computer automatically (there is no way to disable) and thus corrupt the files on my wallet.
The zDex and Unity will solve these issues.
The first is planned after June. With the delays with the current update it might be after July, not sure.
This will allow users to buy PIVX directly within the client in the zPIV fashion (=anonymously).
The second is planned for end of year...more or less. I think now all deadlines will be scrapped for % progress. Anyhow, this will allow to buy PIVX as wells as other cryptos in the Localbitcoin fashion, so with minimal or no KYC at all.
For right now, the best way is to use Flyp.me. So, for instance, you can buy BTC via Localbitcoin or Paxful anonymously and then convert via Flyp.me, again, anonymously. Flyp.me is totally anonymous, no registration, no KYC.
Lastly, a bit more laborious, there's Bisq. Again, minimal details exchanged. It allows P2P, decentralized BTC trade with FIAT as base currencies or P2P, decentralized altcoins trade with BTC, DASH and Litecoin as base currencies.
Also, there are other P2P decentralized exchanges that do not require KYC. We list all exchanges on our Mainboard. There's been one added just today.
Hope it helps.
Well, to be fair Eric, you came in not knowing anything about the project, to know that is is Proof of Stake. SO that shows you are willing to partner with teams you have no understanding of and that is a red flag.
My power went out and pivx wallet shutdown improperly. In this situation the wallet usually has to rebuild the block database. However this time when I press 'Ok' 'Error opening block database' shows up and then the wallet closes
"NO BLOCK SOURCE AVAILABLE" FAULT IN WINDOWS RPI FREEZES WHILE "LOADING BLOCK INDEX"
Windows users, if you get "No block source available" while syncing in Windows is because you should be punished for not using Linux or FOSS. Just kidding 😉. ...see below.
RPI users, if your PI freezes while syncing and loading the block index see below.
The remedy is:
- Shut down the client.
- Open the data folder
- Delete the SPORKS folder.
- Restart the client.
* Admins: This info has also been placed in the PIVX NOTES as well.
actually there is a program called XMING that you can run over putty on a windows machine when you log in to the pi, if you run pivx-qt instead of pivxd you can use the qt gui over xming and it won't use up graphics resources on the pi. The only downside is that when you close xming it stops the qt wallet so I've only used it once or twice just to test. It's running pivxd 24-7 for 9 months no problem.
MASTERNODE ISSUES ON WINDOWS
If you are getting "Error reading masternode configuration file" on Windows, be happy to know that it's a known issue and the devs are already testing a patch.
