GoldCoin TestNet Round #2 for the New Client
« on: February 02, 2018, 11:27:21 pm »
There are two versions to use in the testnet.
  • The Old Client - 0.7.5
  • The New Client - 0.14.2

Install the software
The install packages are zip files.  They contain the programs and folders that will be used for the blockchain.  It doesn't interfere with other wallets on your system.  Unzip these folders where you want and run the "1. start-client" command.  Other commands such as mining may be present in the packages.   If you delete the package after unzipping and running the client, you will loose your wallet.

Windows
old - https://github.com/Stouse49/goldcoin/releases/download/vv0.7.5.0-testnet/Windows.GoldCoin.0.7.5.TestNet.zip
new - https://github.com/Stouse49/Goldcoin-GLD/releases/download/v0.14.2.1-testnet-march/Windows.GoldCoin.Core.0.14.2.1.TestNet-march.zip

Mac
old - https://github.com/Stouse49/goldcoin/releases/download/vv0.7.5.0-testnet/Mac.GoldCoin.0.7.5.TestNet.zip (may not connect)
new -

Linux

Mining

Please Join In on the TestNet part 2.  This test should last about 1 week, unless we find some serious bugs!

Generated coins must mature 101 blocks before they can be spent. When you generated this block, it was broadcast to the network to be added to the block chain. If it fails to get into the chain, its state will change to "not accepted" and it won't be spendable. This may occasionally happen if another node generates a block within a few seconds of yours

You should not modify the scripts provided in the zip file I think, just follow the instructions from the first post.

Steps;
Unzip Windows GoldCoin 0.7.5 TestNet.zip to a folder
Start the client with 1. start-client.cmd
Wait a bit (1 minute)
Start the miner with 2. start-mining-CPU.cmd

Miner should show something like this
Code: [Select]
Goldcoin 0.7.5 TestNet Mining with cpuminer (slow)
[2018-02-06 16:55:03] Binding thread 0 to cpu 0
[2018-02-06 16:55:03] Binding thread 1 to cpu 1
[2018-02-06 16:55:03] 4 miner threads started, using 'scrypt' algorithm.
[2018-02-06 16:55:03] Binding thread 2 to cpu 2
[2018-02-06 16:55:03] Binding thread 3 to cpu 3
[2018-02-06 16:55:03] No payout address provided, switching to getwork
[2018-02-06 16:55:04] thread 2: 4104 hashes, 17.51 khash/s
[2018-02-06 16:55:04] thread 3: 4104 hashes, 17.51 khash/s

For the 0.14.2.1 client the same steps.

-started to mine on the old client, with  = start-mining-CPU.cmd

switched mining

-start mining now on the goldcoinpool.com with new client using my gpu and cgminer 3.7.2.

edit:


i ve only made a few changes:
if you want to something during mining then use a lower itensity, if you want to run it during the night, you can use a higher intensity.
worksize changed to 256
thread concurrency changed to 2048

Problem.

You are trying to mine with cpuminer and the new client.  This doesn't work and it only possible with the old client.

To mine with the new client, connect to the pool:  http://goldcoinpool.com or you must perform complicated instructions to mine solo here:  https://github.com/mikeghen/litecoin-solo-mining-tutorial

Yes.

I did not know that.

Thanks for clarification.

Mining is no longer working with the old client, by design.  You can try to mine with the old client and let me know if any blocks are mined and accepted.

Yes, it does not work, too.



There were 5 immature coins for just one block, nothing more.

Thank you for confirming.  The old client will show that it tried to mine blocks, but they are not confirmed.  At one point the old client on my system had 3 blocks  that were confirming (but they were later orphaned).

Before we can release the new wallet, we need more testing of transactions between old and new clients. It's important that the community do some of this testing because otherwise a bug could go overlooked..

Please ask any questions and post results below.

I did several transactions between the old and new client last week, with and without fee etc.
No errors.
