Core Qt 3DCoin Wallet how to make a clean fresh install (also with backup of your wallet)


  • 3DCoinTalk Italia

    #FRESH #CLEAN #INSTALL #SETUP #WALLET #BACKUP #CORE #QT

    If you want to try a fresh-clean install of a core qt 3dcoin wallet try this step by step:

    πŸ”– Note: If you don't know where is the main folder of wallet you can find the complete path in the "repair wallet" menu πŸ˜‰

    1. Backup first ⚠️ your wallet.dat file in various external drives, also using the backup function in the old wallet or simply copy and paste the wallet.dat file from the main wallet folder to many other destinations in external drives (with wallet closed of course). ⚠️Without a correct backup you lose your coins⚠️

    2. If you are a masternode owner make also a backup ⚠️ of file masternode.conf πŸ˜…πŸ˜‰

    3. After backup, with wallet closed ⚠️, rename the main old folder of old wallet from 3dcoin to 3dcoin_old (is the folder with wallet.dat inside).

    4. Download again the new wallet zip archive for your system and unzip in a different folder (not the same of the first unzip) from official repository

    https://github.com/BlockchainTechLLC/3dcoin/releases

    1. Run-open the new unzipped wallet as usual (double click on 3dcoin-qt.exe executable file usually located in the "bin" subfolder of unzipped archive, if you can not find the 3dcoin-qt.exe file directly in the main unzipped folder) and do not modify the path when the program ask, leave the default path (please note the path!).
      Don't worry you don't see your coins because this is a new clean wallet! βœ…
      If you are a masternode owner don't forget to set in the settings menu "enable coin control" and "show masternodes tab")

    2. After the synchronization of blockchain, when wallet has finished (wait about 20 minutes... depends on the connection) when all is synchronized, close the wallet.
      β„Ή Please note: If you have connection problems, check first your pc firewall and if you do not solve follow also the instructions to add trusted nodes / peers as indicated in the following second post πŸ˜‰

    3. Now put the backup files (wallet.dat and also masternode.conf if you have masternodes) in the new folder of the new wallet (noted on number 5 of this post ⬆️ but you can always see the path of main folder in the repair menu of the wallet).

    4. Open again the wallet and now you can see your coins and your masternodes.

    Enjoy! πŸ˜‰ 😈 😎

    πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ New Wallet v.0.14.1.2 released today 05-02-2019 βœ…βœ…βœ…

    πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€ New protocol 70216 πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€

    https://github.com/BlockchainTechLLC/3dcoin/releases/tag/v0.14.1.2

    For those who want to do a clean wallet installation ( ⚠️ always be careful to backup first your wallet.dat and your masternode.conf files!!! ⚠️ ) the instructions above in the first post are always valid. Today the blockchain is about 670 megabytes so if you want to re-load it all with a clean installation it will take about half an hour, but it depends on the connection.

    If you need some peers/nodes for 3dcoin.conf file (in case your wallet could not find nodes to connect to, but it's usually not necessary, check your firewall first) here are those approved

    βœ… #addnode #trusted nodes βœ…

    Add the lines below in your 3dcoin.conf file (in the 3DCoin files directory) if you have #sync or #connection problem in your wallet (but first check also your firewall!).
    This is an example of some lines to add to the file 3dcoin.conf (always go to the end of the line after each line... a line for each line...):

    addnode=107.173.231.82
    addnode=159.69.86.69
    addnode=176.223.130.243
    addnode=185.242.226.84
    addnode=194.182.68.196
    addnode=198.71.55.118
    addnode=217.61.18.81
    addnode=45.80.39.13
    addnode=45.95.144.61
    addnode=51.15.104.71
    addnode=54.39.249.75
    addnode=80.211.173.80
    addnode=89.190.159.114
    addnode=94.176.237.23
    

    Here you can find a wider list (which also includes the previous ones), the new list was created in August 2019:

    As already mentioned, connection problems are often due to the firewall, so you can usually leave the 3dcoin.conf blank in your pc and the wallet will still find nodes/peers automatically.

    Even if those who do a "fresh / clean install" should not have subsequent problems of synchronization, in the event that the wallet even after a clean / fresh installation can not synchronize the blocks, in addition to all the above, in particular ⚠firewall check⚠ and adding the trusted nodes listed above (and also listed below in this post), one last definitive solution is to delete the following files:

    Delete all the files below from the folder (warning! ⚠ do not delete your wallet.dat file and moreover if you have masternodes do not delete your masternode.conf file! ⚠ )

    banlist.dat
    mncache.dat
    mnpayments.dat
    netfulfilled.dat
    debug.log
    

    If you want, you can also delete all the blockchain, deleting the two subfolders below:

    chainstate
    blocks
    

    Then add the lines below in your 3dcoin.conf file (always in the 3DCoin files directory) and please check again also your Windows firewall!
    This is an example of some lines to add to the file 3dcoin.conf (always go to the end of the line after each line... a line for each line...):

    addnode=107.173.231.82
    addnode=159.69.86.69
    addnode=176.223.130.243
    addnode=185.242.226.84

    All the operations above with wallet closed of course.
    Then reopen the wallet and wait for the sync.

    We have seen that with this method even the most stubborn wallets can finally unblock the synchronization. ⚠ Be careful to perform all operations with caution and always have many backups of your wallet.dat and your masternode.conf ⚠ in other storage media other than your computer (for example in external drives such as external usb sticks and hard drives, never trust a single stick or a single hard-disk of course!). Naturally, you must also always keep your password to unlock the wallet with due care! ⚠ Be careful if you do not want to lose your 3DCoins! ⚠
