[Solved] wallet unable to be insync for weeks now
« on: August 18, 2017, 09:03:52 AM »
I want to report that for weeks now, my wallet (lastest version) is continuously syncing
and constantly telling that I have no mature coins (which is simply impossible because
I have them in my wallet for almost one year)

I realize that at first, I was staking every few days (shortly after installing the wallet),
then nothing for 8 months, then one large staking reward.... and since then (mid-june),
nothing and as I was telling now wallet continuously syncing.

Also, one detail is that even if the "open at starting of the system" is checked,
the wallet does not open when my system is starting (once in a while, I am
rebooting my machine).

Is that a behavior you are familiar with for OK cash wallet?

I am on PC, with a RAM of 16 Go.

I am staking sucessfully many other coins with no issues what so ever.

thanks for your help

as of now, I tried the solutions that in fact had been provided to me 10 months ago:
https://okcashtalk.org/index.php/topic,1865.0.html

I "reinstalled" the wallet, and now w/ the blockchain zip, I am syncing....

Hope it will go to full sync finally. Still have 50K block to sync...

Will tell if / when everything is ok...

Just surprised that I need to go through the same reinstallation process eery few months.

I don't experience that with other wallets.... ;-)

ok, to tell that with the re-installation of the wallet, it finally synced fully
and will finally get back on stacking....

Lost weeks of stacking, not realizing it was never in sync....

experience....

hope it will help others who experience the same

Good news is, you'll get just about the same amount of coins as if you were staking the whole time :) I do love OK for that reason.

Unfortunatly, I have to report now that even after the re-installation,
I keep getting the same issue over and over....

The wallet turns out of sync, even if opened 24/7
and is unable to catch up....

I really need to do something...

And sorry to tell about your statement that even while not staking all the time
you would get the same amount of rewards...

it is certainly not the case for me.... after my wallet got on sync, I did not get any new stacking rewards...
and it has been the case for a long time now....
Before, I was staking well... and now nothing in months I think

Delete all files from okcash datadir EXCEPT wallet.dat

download the latest ok blockchain from: https://github.com/okcashpro/ok-blockchain/releases

Follow the steps, start wallet and should be working, if not please play more attention to the steps and/or provide more details.

You must be on a fork, sounds like your issue (this could be based on a number of local issues), so using the latest chain ensures you are in the correct chain
so you can get those rewards, code does not lie, go read the Okcash code over github if want to learn how it works.

Also, if your coins have been there in the same address for more than a year, you need to move them to a new address.

As the okcash code says, Min time 8 hrs - Max time for stake is 1 year, so after a year you just need to move to new address so counter can reset and coins can stake again.
