What I have done so far:

  • Generated new Genesis Block
  • Generated new MerkleRoot
  • Updated MerkleRoot
  • Updated Genesis block values
  • Commented out these lines
  • Compiled on CentOS 6
  • Created altcoin.confwith
rpcuser=someuser
rpcpassword=somepassword
  • lauched ./altcoin

at this point all seemed to be OK but...

  • ./altcoind getinfo

shows:

{
    "version" : 60300,
    "protocolversion" : 60001,
    "walletversion" : 60000,
    "balance" : 0,
    "blocks" : 0,
    "connections" : 1,
    "proxy" : "",
    "difficulty" : 1.00000000,
    "testnet" : false,
    "keypoololdest" : 1400530204,
    "keypoolsize" : 104,
    "paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
    "mininput" : 0.00010000,
    "errors" : ""
}
  • so I try to use internal miner to mine first block ./altcoind setgenerate true 8
  • while checking progress by ./altcoind getmininginfo i got strange output

which shows:

{
    "blocks" : 0,
    "currentblocksize" : 0,
    "currentblocktx" : 0,
    "difficulty" : 1.00000000,
    "errors" : "",
    "generate" : true,
    "genproclimit" : 4,
    "hashespersec" : 0,
    "networkhashps" : 1.46543,
    "pooledtx" : 0,
    "testnet" : false
}

At this point, I've issues ./altcoind stop and when I try to launch it again, debug.log shows:

Altcoin Network: genesis=0x00000000324a1b505ecd nBitsLimit=0x1d00ffff nBitsInitial=0x1c00ffff nStakeMinAge=604800 nCoinbaseMaturity=500 nModifierInterval=21600

mapBlockIndex.size() = 1

setKeyPool.size() = 101
mapWallet.size() = 0
mapAddressBook.size() = 1

and the same error over and over again... I am cracking my head already a while....

can one, please point me the right direction. thanks

UPDATE1:

  • deleted all the content from ~/.altcoin/ except altcoin.conf
  • launched ./altcoind
  • issued ./altcoind setgenerate true 4

at this point I figured out ./altcoind starts up without complaining about stake modifier though everytime I want to restart I have to delete the contents of ~/.altcoin/ otherwise error pops up.

output of debug.log:

despite it is up and running and both nodes are connected to eachother, outputs of ./altcoind getinfo and ./altcoind getmininginfo are still the same.

UPDATE 2

  • removed all hard checkpoints from kernel.cpp link
  • added ( 0, 0x0000000000000000 )

    // Hard checkpoints of stake modifiers to ensure they are deterministic static std::map mapStakeModifierCheckpoints = boost::assign::map_list_of ( 0, 0x0000000000000000 ) // ( 0, 0x0e00670bu ) // ( 19080, 0xad4e4d29u ) // ( 30583, 0xdc7bf136u ) // ( 99999, 0xf555cfd2u ) // (219999, 0x91b7444du ) ;

  • recompiled

  • removed all the contents of ~/.altcoin/ folder
  • added altcoin.conf
  • launched ./altcoind
  • issued ./altcoind getinfo - output is still the same
  • issues ./altcoind setgenerate true 4 -
  • debug.log output is the same as previously
  • issued ./altcoind stop
  • launched ./altcoind

at this point I it failed again with the same error message

AltCoin Network: genesis=0x00000000324a1b505ecd nBitsLimit=0x1d00ffff nBitsInitial=0x1c00ffff nStakeMinAge=604800 nCoinbaseMaturity=500 nModifierInterval=21600
ERROR: CTxDB::LoadBlockIndex() : Failed stake modifier checkpoint height=0, modifier=0x0000000000000000
  • I have also removed all checkpoints beside (0, genesisBlock) from checkpoints.cpp and recompile it again... still the same problem... – m1k3y3 Oct 27 '17 at 14:18
  • Is github.com/mammix2/boostcoin-core your source code or something you forked from? – Andrew Chow Oct 30 '17 at 19:08
  • I forked peercoin master0.5 link . Since it is for educational purposes, I did not submit code to GitHub or anywhere else, Let me know what you need and I will provide it via pastebin – m1k3y3 Oct 31 '17 at 9:01
  • I just have added UPDATE 1 in the main block – m1k3y3 Oct 31 '17 at 14:07

It looks like you did not change the stake modifier checkpoints which are found here: https://github.com/peercoin/peercoin/blob/master-0.5/src/kernel.cpp#L40. You will need to change these stake modifier checkpoints to match the stake modifiers of your checkpoint blocks.

If you don't want to check those checkpoints, you can just change this function: https://github.com/peercoin/peercoin/blob/master-0.5/src/kernel.cpp#L508 to always return true. That should "fix" this problem that you are experiencing.

  • I did that. See my comment above. – m1k3y3 Oct 31 '17 at 9:02
  • a snippet of checkpoints.cpp file – m1k3y3 Oct 31 '17 at 10:10
  • I didn't see your comment. I have updated my answer – Andrew Chow Oct 31 '17 at 15:24
  • since there are no blocks apart from genesis, where do I find one? – m1k3y3 Oct 31 '17 at 16:07
  • Just remove all of the modifiers for heights other than 0 and change the one for 0 to be whatever the stake modifier for your genesis block is. – Andrew Chow Oct 31 '17 at 16:08
0

You should find the correct modifier to use for block 0 by using getblock of your genesis hash

getblock 00000000324a1b505ecd77b793658f4fa6cd386653fdabd7d1c66907177174d6
