I have built the bitcoin source code with a new
The code builds fine and does not run into any
assert problems when validating these hashes on
[line 128 and line 129 of chainparams.cpp]. (Great)
When I run
bitcoin-qt I run into the error below:
Error: Incorrect or no genesis block found. Wrong datadir for network?
Is the reason I am encountering this error because I have not yet mined the genesis block? If so how do I do that? It seems that in the bitcoin code there is nothing about mining the genesis block. I have heard rumours that this functionality was removed and that I will have to download a separate program for this step. Please confirm.
