I would love to have 1 gridcoin

9 days ago

I am just getting started with gridcoin and I would love to have a starter coin. I will give you a few sweet upvotes (just say "sent one" and then say "you're welcome" and then say "seriously... no problem") for one grid coin.

I have sent you some starter coins. Welcome to the community!

You may want to get involved with the Gridcoin Slack if you'd like to talk more with the community. We have a bridge to IRC in there too.

hey @dutch ... good to see you here ^^ ... since you are talking about the Gridcoin Slack ... trying to join via the landing page results in the following error: "Something went wrong and we're not quite sure what. We'll look into it as soon as possible!"

·

Most people get that error for some reason... You should have been sent an email to let you join regardless.

·

Thank you!!! Not sure why my wallet is not showing any coins. I found some today and they are not showing up either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You're very welcome. It's practically tradition to give new community members some starter coins.

You are not seeing the coins because your wallet is out of sync, like you mentioned below. Once it syncs up, they will appear. Is the block height in your wallet rising? This means you are downloading blocks and syncing.

My wallet is still saying (out of sync)... I am sure that is the reason.

Take a look here https://www.gridcoin.us/Guides/acquire-grc.htm either like @forkpullmerge said use download blocks or use that snapshot, details of both are on the link.

figuring that out...

Yes, it will take quite a while to synchronize the complete blockchain. If you want to speed up the process, there is a function under the "Help" menu called "Download blocks" ... if that is functional at the moment it should make it faster than the regular p2p synch.

I have a question about staking.

My Cpid is recognized as I sent out a beacon...
I have an encrypted passphrase and I just have no idea where to find my config file so that I can unlock the wallet for staking.

There is lots of info on doing this... but I cannot find out where my config file actually is.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

You can find your config file under:

...\AppData\Roaming\GridcoinResearch

This is also where your wallet.dat file is kept, which you should back up regularly just to be safe.

That being said, several users have been having problems getting their wallet to unlock automatically. I have not delved into this, so cannot elaborate, but you may just want to unlock it manually for the time being. You can do that straight from the GUI overview page.

Still out of sync... I am on gridcoin.us and am going to try to download the 'snapshot'... I will see if that gets it going.

·

The blocks are going up... so it is just playing the waiting game i assume?

Thank you for the assist!
