Hi and welcome to the forums.
You can do what @Wellenreiter has described.
basically your Feathercoin data directory by default should be in C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Feathercoin
In that folder you’ll find your wallet.dat as well as your downloaded copy of the blockchain.
When you uninstall feathercoin-qt from “add and remove programs” it removes it from C:\Program Files\Feathercoin but it leaves the stuff in your AppData folder alone
BUT!!! Always be on the safe side - Make a backup of your wallet.dat and your private keys separately…
Then uninstall Feathercoin 0.9.6.2 and just simply download and run the installer for 0.16 .
The 0.16 installer should find your Feathercoin data directory and work as normal. You might have to wait for it to rescan the blockchain but this is pretty quick on most computers…
@j1732 said in p2pool for core 0.16 question:
Almost. I created a linux box and got everything to run and compile right. The only issue now is when I try and use an newly generated receipt address from my wallet it won’t work. Runs fine if I use the address you show in the example at the beginning.
So i think feathercoin core 0.16 and onwards will default to segwit / bech32 addresses.
To generate a legacy address that’s you can use the feathecoin-cli
the command would be something like
feathercoin-cli getnewaddress "AddressLabel" "address_type"
so for you, you could do something like
feathercoin-cli getnewaddress "PoolWallet" "legacy"
Marked as solved.
@acidd said in Zero balance:
Please as a rule back up your wallet.dat and private keys.
Do the rescan and let us know how you get on.
Do you see your coins in the block explorer? Fsight.chain.tips ?
solved the problem, as no further posts here

That’s awesome, Peter. I’d love to hear your experiences with Electrumx server. Did you have any issues with it so far?

@AmDD thanks for confirming
it seems if you visit https://ltcgear.com/login/dologin.html
you can login…the website seems to be in Chinese so I’m not sure what it actually provides…
I’ve also changed the Topic Title to mark it as a scam.
