    There are only a few exchanges that exchange FTC directly to FIAT.
    Most people exchange to Bitcoin and then to FIAT.
    If you google ‘feathercoin exchange’ you should find some exchanges.
    Also bitinfocharts and coingecko provide some information as they name the exchanges they use as database to create their charts.

    You can configure the intensity of mining in the miner software.
    Most software has a configuration named ‘auto’ so it adapts the intensity.
    As an alternative you can set the intensity to ‘8’. this should give you an acceptable response time of the GPU for normal operation at the cost of lower mining hash rates.

    If you want to encrypt your wdecisallet, that decision is fully yours.
    If the wallet is not encrypted and someone gets access to your computer, he/she can open the wallet and has full access.
    If the wallet is encrypted, you need to provide a password for every sent coins action.

    To get the private key go to debug or tools (depending on the version of your wallet), then to console and the command

    'dumpprivatekey <your feathercoin address>'
    it will take 2 -3 seconds and the private key for that address is displayed.

    Hi, it’s me again!

    Is there a way to mute the program or disable the notifications? I’m getting a sound and a pop-up (with how much i earned) each time i’m earning coins, and while watching a movie, it’s kinda annoying^^

    Oh, and, is there a way for us, humble miner, to contribute to increase the FTC’s market value?

    well… 😉

    honnestly… 🤹🏻

    unless you are solo mining exit the wallet and start it after you watched the movie…

    If you are solo mining…

    close the wallet and use feathercoind.

    Assuming you are on a windows system, feathercoind should be located in the same directory as feathercoin-qt and you can start it in a command window.

    😃 😃 😃

    I think on Windows you can just right click the speaker icon near the clock/taskbar - click “open volume mixer” and then just mute “system sounds” but leave everything else as normal…

    if you’re then watching netflix or playing a movie with VLC or so…you wont hear the Feathercoin sounds.

    I hope this helps.

    I’m not solo mining, and yes, i’m on Win10.
    i can mine while the wallet (feathercoin-qt) isn’t opened? it will just update once i’m logged in, right?
    Ok, so, otherwise, i’ll just mute the “system sounds”, ty!
    Could be nice to add an option for the notification on the next FTC launcher’s update, don’t you think?

    @kaalhaan if you are not solo mining, but using a pool there is no reason to keep the wallet open all time.
    All coins you get are stored in the block chain and your wallet will catch up if coins arrived for you while it was closed.
    The only reason to keep a wallet or daemon running all time is if you run a pool yourself or do solo mining as the wallet/daemon then needs to server the miner


  • Regular Member | Tip Kaalhaan

    @wellenreiter Perfect, so if i open the wallet once a day, it’s enough! ty!

    Ugh, apparently, the latest Windows 10 update ( that i did yesterday night) fucked up something with my internet connection, so today, i’ve mine for nothing since apparently, the pool i’m in didn’t receive anything from me… ( Or so they say ;p )

    [the wifi i used was set in “public”, i’ve set it in “private” 30min ago, and i’m now receiving some coins… i wish i’ve seen that earlier on^^]

    Hi, hmm, the FTC wallet wants to be updated, so it’s just a basic update, it won’t have to resync and it won’t change my actual wallet address, right? just to be sure to know if there’s any manipulation i need to do, thx^^

    Yep that’s correct. You wont need to resync what you have because Feathercoin stores the BlockChain in AppData - where as the QT software gets installed in Program Files. So you can uninstall and reinstall the new client without affecting your current blockchain download/sync

    I uploaded the windows 64 bit setup files not long ago. You can download them from the feathercoin website.

    1 - backup your wallet.dat and private keys
    2 - uninstall Feathercoin-Qt from Add/Remove Programs
    3 - Install the new 0.9.6.2 client
    4 - enjoy!

    I hope this helps.
