Wallet slow to sync


  • | Tip jimmy24651

    @channard well…not necessarily… you can still purchase FTC on an exchange, and send them to your wallet. You just won’t see your actual balance, or be able to send them back out of that wallet until the blockchain is 100% confirmed. You don’t buy FTC with your wallet. You simply store them there.

    @jimmy24651 Oh sure, that sounds awesome… Until the wallet works, i’m not risking it. If I was only putting in $100, sure, I wouldn’t mind not having a fully operational wallet. Since I plan on putting in significantly more, I expect the wallet to work 100% and to fully sync. No questions asked.

    Edit: I am already hesitant about having to use a Desktop Wallet as it is. I prefer my Trezor/Ledger for storage.

    you always can create a paper wallet and use that.

    Fully secure, unless you loose the printed paper

    @channard To each their own…

    I personally LOVE the idea of being able to invest in a SOLID coin, such as FTC at such a ridiculously undervalued price as we see currently. I am willing to put up with a few headaches (if waiting for a wallet top sync can even be misconstrued as such) to get in early!


  • | Tip jimmy24651

    @channard And for the record…every windows-based wallet I’ve downloaded has taken quite a while to sync to blockchain…it’s not like FTC has some type of an issue. It just is what it is…if you’re going to use a wallet which synchronizes with the entire chain, you have to be patient. I seem to remember hearing a few people in my life who were older and wiser than myself say something along the lines of “patience is a virtue”.

    This has been a major support issue, the new version 0.9.6.2 coming out should make it a lot quicker. I will not be sad not to see sync issues problems a thing of the past.

    @acidd I downloaded this file but am running the wallet on my mac. I tried to find the library on my mac but can’t find it. Is it the same dbase and where should I save it on a mac?

    My wallet is synchronising but running for a full week now. Checking the debug window/networktraffic it shows block being send and received of 40KB/s.
    My bandwidth is about 45Mbps down.
    1.719.992 blocks done.

    Thanks

    You need to go here:

    ~/Library/Application Support/Feathercoin/
    

    If you’re on MacOS you can either try this Bootstrap.dat file or you can wait a day or two - we are going to release 0.9.6.2 which has a much faster sync than 0.9.6.1

    I downloaded the updated wallet but it’s still extremely slow to sync. Did I do something wrong when updating? Uninstalled 0.9.6.1 64bit before installing 0.9.6.2 32bit and kept the appdata folder as it was


  • Moderators | Tip Wellenreiter

    no, you did everything right.

    with version 0.9.6.2 the sync still needs several hours to complete

    Follow this procedure to open your Library folder:
    Click your “username”
    Go to Finder and click “Go”
    Press the “Alt” button and you’ll see “Library” appearing
    Click on “Library” while holding “Alt” button
    “Library” folder opens and go to “Application Support” folder
    Look for your “Feathercoin” folder

    This is for MacOS only. And not windows 32bit

    @acidd
    That’s correct

    Thank you to everyone in this thread - I am working through the same issues and using this thread to move the process of sync my wallet. Sync Feather = right of passage 😉

    Hi,

    the link to https://ufile.io/8ysgb is not longer valid (unless you subscribe to their premium contract). Can someone republish it please?

    I’m on 0.9.6.2, but sync is still only half way through (block 1023813) after 24hrs…

    You are past any problems in the sync. Even if you download blockdat, it still has to be checked by the system, which is the thing that takes time.


  • newbies | Tip 5v3nla

    It’s been running for a week now… block 1770805… this is ridiculuous…

    I have dozens of wallets in other altcoins… none of them took longer than a day.


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    Are you ate your PC now, is the wallet open? can you click on, settings, debug window, console tab,

    then type

    getinfo
    

    then :

    getpeerinfo 
    

    May help diagnose why you are slow.

    I posted earlier in this thread. one of the main reasons why the sync is so slow is that Feathercoin was attacked a lot in the early days in 2013/2014 that caused a few orphan chains on the network that have to be processed.
