Feathercoin release 0.17.0.1 has a vulnerable version of the dependency to the zeromq library and puts the users which have this feature enabled at risk for a remote-code-execution bug related to CVE-2019-6250 .
Feathercoin release 0.17.0.2 fixed this bug by using zeromq version 4.3.1
Users compiling their own version of Feathercoin-wallet or daemon and are using the depends folder of the code to compile the dependencies should update to version 0.17.0.2
Users using the pre-compiled binaries for Linux Windows and MAC should also update to 0.17.0.2
Users using the Linux PPA should have received a patch for zeromq through their Linux packet manager and therefore don’t need to take any actions.
Users not using the zeromq features don’t need to take any actions.
The pre-compiled binaries for version 0.17.0.2 are under compilation and will be available within the next days.
The Android wallet Feathercoin-Wallet-2 is obsolete and removed from Playstore.
Alternatives for Android are
the Coinomi Wallet
the Edge Wallet
Both are available on Playstore
How to move to a new wallet
Send all your coins from Android-Wallet-2 to another wallet you have access to.
Export your private keys from Android-wallet-2 and follow the process described here.

Now with a stable BCH out there. FTC can be fine never implementing segwit and stay relevant with Bitcoin upgrades…Anything they do on BTC, they’ll figure out eventually on BCH (and FTC).
My purpose was more, what is the use of scaling FTC in the current state of it’s development ?
And actually I’m not a fan of SegWit, the fact that you separate Signature from the transaction, this kind of “separate chain”, we already have SPV client for light wallet so I don’t see the urge nor the goal. (Some will say Maleability fix)
There is so many other ways to scale. I hope Feathercoin comunity gonna be wiser than Bitcoin one.
So don’t panic, just grab a towel.
@AcidD Awesome thanks. I must be thinking of something else. Following too many coins these days…I want to get some VIVO and TZC too when they hit exchanges that i use. Great to see more neo adoption.
Long live FTC!
Yea, always been that way too on every coin. The top wallets are exchanges, thats why they have thousands and thousands of transactions. No single investor would have a reason to be moving their funds around constantly.
@peeet said in Coinmarketcap and Coingecko:
Lol, I just read in the other thread that 19800 will be closing anyway.
Sorry I forgot to ping here. Yeah some hot news in China. Wait and see.
Anyway you prove than FTC is alive and that is priceless. Thanks a lot for that.
NeoScrypt now used for Scrypt hash generation in the code, CheckProofOfWork set to use hash and nBits instead of height same as Bitcoin and GetPoWHash toggles between Scrypt and NeoScrypt based on time instead of height as suggested by Ghostlander.
Fork height, fork times and checkpoint keys defined in chainparams.
getwork has been restored in the commit in my post above. Once my client has synced the changes will be pulled into the 0.9.6.2 branch. They are currently on my own 0.9.6.2-bushstar branch.
The size of the block chain also depends on the size of a the blocks contained.
The size of a block is influenced by the number and size of the transactions contained in that block.
The Feathercoin block chain currently is about 2.1 Gbyte.
Bitcoin already has implemented some features to reduce the actual size of data stored on a client and we will do the same for Feathercoin in the future
@jungle said in Bitcoin in meltdown?:
How much coins can I get on Btc? I still didn’t have an idea whether to own the bitcoins.
Well, how many Coins you get depends on the money you want to invest.
Just open an account on one or several exchanges, that trade Bitcoins for US Dollars and but as many coins as you want, or can afford
A stable price isnt always a bad thing. These wild and crazy gains we see in the crypto simply dont happen in the rest of the world. They just dont. Its unrealistic to expect them to continue forever here as well.
Sure we would all like to see our coins gain 5% everyday but thats not sustainable. Id prefer to watch it slowly grow over time as new features and projects are brought online. Natural growth is way better than a Pump and Dump every few months.
@Wellenreiter said in Coinofview.com -- coin stats site:
Well, if you have a look here: http://coinofview.com/coin/Feathercoin.html they are totally outdated. Their last update is more than a year old
I saw that too. I tried to contact them but so far no reply.
Whilst I would be happy that Shapeshift did what they promised and reinstate FTC. I do not think we will re-add Shapeshift to the wallet, despite the bounty payements to program the SS and Coinotron add-ons.
Lizhi completed the bounty work by member request and is no longer available to maintain that code. By including the code, it may give the impression FTC is an exchange and expose members to unforseen legal requirements.
@neilhead said in Send Feathercoin?:
I did have instructions but am a little uneasy in case i do it wrong? Im trying to send the feathercoins from a paper wallet to my wallet in bittrex account. im the wrong side of fourty and struggle a bit with this internet “magic” lol
You can’t directly transfer from a paper wallet to a Bittrex or any other exchange based accout, because they provide the corresponding wallet addreses and keep the private keys semself.
What you need to do:
install a feathercoin client on your PC. you can get the download links at www.feathercoin. com at the bottom of the main page.
start up the wallet and let it sync. This may take from several hours to one day. If you notice that the sync doesn’t make progress, simply stop and start the wallet.
when the wallet is fully synced go to
Then enter the command 'importprivkey <paperwallet private key> rescan’
This will import the private key from the paperwallet into the clien’t wallet and with the rescan option the wallet reads all transactions for the just imported address.
When that is completed, you can transfer your coins to Bittrex.
