I just heard about Bitcoin, it looks huge, and am trying to get it to work and see how it works.
I live in a very rural community and we do not have Internet yet, I had to do some dirty deeds to get my first minimal hardware, and to get this far to simply post.
-- I installed QT and let it sync. I want to learn how to run bitcoind on my local Windows PC and issue commands in hex to the network.
I can't get bitcoind to run.
C:\bitcoin-0.17.0\bin\bitcoind -daemon -datadir=c:\bitcoin ( when I ran QT, I added -datadir=c:\bitcoin ) Error: -daemon is not supported on this operating system
-- I am assuming I can't or should not run Bitcoin QT and the daemon at the same time. I'm trying to understand the bitcoin commands, from the command line (not the QT console) and believe that I can not run both at the same time, because both try to sync the blockchain, correct me if I'm wrong.
