File -> Backup wallet
Save your wallet file securely in at least two locations.
Settings -> Encrypt wallet
Ensure that you use a secure password, backup after you encrypt your wallet file if there are no coins in it to ensure its security.
At some point they removed the GUI for mining from the litecoin-qt client. So you have to run minerd from the command-line or terminal. The actual command syntax seems to be loosely documented, however.
Two reasons for this:
cpu mining simply is relatively too slow and unprofitable to warrant much further development.
Nevertheless the general consensus (...
On Linux, the default data directory is ~/.litecoin/. This is where the wallet, blockchain, configuration, etc. files are stored.
You can backup your wallet from File > Backup Wallet. This is the part that contains your private keys. See the pic:
You should encrypt with a secure passphrase (in Settings > Encrypt Wallet) before exporting your wallet. If you ...
Since Litecoin is a fork of bitcoin you can use JavaBitcoindRpcClient to connect with litecoin client and execute API calls.
To connect with client, you can use below code :
String user = "RPC_USER_NAME";
String password = "RPC_PASSWORD";
String host = "127.0.0.1";
String port = "PORT";
You need to do a few things to make the genesis block spendable, all in validation.cpp (untested):
Allow tx connection, L#2904:
if (*pindexPrev->phashBlock == chainparams.GetConsensus().hashGenesisBlock)
// return true;
Skip coinbase amount check for genesis block, L#1933:
if (block.vtx->GetValueOut() > blockReward && block....
You need to delete the data directories entirely with the node software shut down when you do that. If both nodes' data directories have been removed and starting one of them still results in the blockchain being downloaded, that means that there is a node that you are connecting to which did not have its data directory cleared. You can find out what node ...
Change your client software?
Change your operating system?
Install Updates eg. Java/Qt/...?
Checked blockchain.info (for transactions on your wallet?)
My first assumption would be that you got hacked (if your wallet.dat was in it's predefined environment) and that the one controlling has added as password or you have encountered a bug ...
So I finally decided to give up trying to use qt 4.8.5 and helixcoin and galleoncoin github sources. And used qt 5.2.0 with slothcoin source from github. Which worked fine. And qt wallet started without a problem. Though I still dont understand why was qt 4.8.5 not including the msrvct.dll file. maybe that these libs were never included in qt 4.8.5? Seems to ...
The Litecoin source tree, in the doc/ folder, provides a file regarding building on Windows, using MinGW and MSYS. I can't personally vouch for those instructions, never having used them myself, so if you go that route, good luck. The way that the release binaries are built, if I'm not mistaken, is using the Gitian builder. If you're looking to do a Windows ...
Have you set a proxy?
From my experience slow shutdown seems to have to do with slow proxies (for example, Tor).
There is an issue for this: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues/2954
If it is not the network thread that hangs, but database synchronization, then killing with -9 can be dangerous.
I'd suggest debugging this by running in gdb, Ctrl-Cing ...
Make sure you backup your files before doing this!!
This might be late, but you need to replace the following files in your system.
Linux: /home/Your username/.digitalnote
Windows: C/Windows/Users/Your username/AppData/Roaming/digitalnote
Here is a ...
It looks like these are freshly mined Litecoins that have not matured yet, you need to wait until they mature to spend them. Maturity refers to the number of confirmations that newly mined coins need to have. For Litecoin (and Bitcoin) this is 120 blocks.
(See a discussion related to this here: https://github.com/litecoin-project/litecoin/issues/26)
So you ...
