Everything seems to be going well creating my altcoin for fun. I forked the BlackCoin source on Ubuntu, successfully mined a genesis block, recompiled. I bought a droplet over on digitalocean running Ubuntu 12.04, compiled my *coind from source, and ran it.
I know that worked because my *coin-qt on my local computer had 0 connections before, now it has 1, and my *coind getconnectioncount on my droplet reports 1 connection.
Here is my problem, my client *coin-qt says there are 80000 blocks remaining. Of course, it is stuck on block 0.
How can I fix this and start mining?
