Until 3 weeks ago, I only ever had known of Bitcoin and Litecoin. Now that I am aware of all these other currencies, I'm excited and a bit overwhelmed. Would you care to submit your favorite cryptocurrency, how to set up a local wallet for it (I'm on Ubuntu and at present I have bitcoin-qt, litecoin-qt, and ppcoin-qt), good faucets, other tips, etc? My knowledge other than how to use wallets and conduct basic transactions is lacking. Also links to various thorough articles on mining, mining rigs, software, various currencies, etc would be appreciated. I'm very enthusiastic about the idea of cryptocurrencies, and I'm hoping that soon I can get a ton of wallets going and learn the differences between various coins.
Why is installing peercoin qt in linux live session so hard?
Hi, I'm trying to do a USB Live Session fresh install on my OSX comp, using ubuntu 12.04. I want to install the peercoin client offline to generate an offline wallet which can then be encrypted and moved to a USB key, and later imported to peercoin on my Mac when I want to spend the coins. My question is whether or not I have to connect to the Internet in the liveUSB to actually do this successfully? Because I'm having an amazing amount of trouble doing this (nights and nights of frustration) when I'm not connecting to the internet. In general I don't think that I'm technically disinclined, but this is absolutely stumped me. I'll outline my steps that I've done so far. 1- I've made the USB system and can boot no problem. I always choose to "test ubuntu without installing" since when I tried installing it wanted to overwrite my OSX 2- I unpack the tar.gz and I can't actually follow the install instructions coming with Peercoin (ppcoin-0.3.0-linux.tar.gz is the file I downloaded) below:
First, make sure that the required packages for Qt4 development of your distribution are installed, for Debian and Ubuntu these are: apt-get install qt4-qmake libqt4-dev build-essential libboost-dev libboost-system-dev \ libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-thread-dev \ libssl-dev libdb4.8++-dev then execute the following: qmake make Alternatively, install Qt Creator and open the `bitcoin-qt.pro` file.
I cant install the required packages in order to unpack everything. All of the threads I read about detail steps AFTER installing, so it seems like I just am braindead and can't even get to the point others start to have difficulty. I also cannot install a QT creator, which the system suggests I try to do to create a graphical user interface. I've also followed the instructions here, as to how to install QT creator, but to absolutely no avail. The command line either says there is no file, or nothing happens. I followed the instructions here, as to how to unpack a file with a .bin extension but when I do that nothing happens either. I guess my question is, why is this so hard for me? Everything that I read suggest that the best kind of off-line wallet is done on a system that is never connected to the Internet. But if I can't install anything without connecting to the Internet, how can I get to the point where I can even generate a Wallet? This link on github suggests I should be connected to the internet Is anybody aware of an ultra descriptive linux/ubuntu 12.04 fresh install set of instructions? Something like this I think would be incredibly valuable to the community, and if I ever figure it out on my own, I will absolutely make it. I feel like this is limiting me from getting completely set up with peercoin. I can just generate private keys offline (I think, honestly I haven't tried running the html files I've downloaded because I'm fighting with ubuntu (bitaddress.org, brainwallet.org, etc)). But since I am using OS X, there doesn't appear for me to be any way to actually import a generated private key/address at this point into the OSX peercoin client to generate a new wallet. Is there? Any help is very very appreciated, thanks very much. Also, should I double post this at peercointalk.org? I'm more familiar with Reddit :) *edit 1 - fixed formatting
Hi everyone, I've been reading all I can about Peercoin, and I'm planning on getting started (slowly accumulating BTC to convert) with Peercoin as soon as I can. I have some questions relating to offline wallet setup that I haven't been able to find the answers to, and I would really appreciate any assistance. I've been lurking peercoin for a while, as well as peercointalk.org. 1 - I notice there are https ways of generating bitcoin/litecoin addresses, but only http for the analogous peercoin site: https://www.bitaddress.org/http://primecoin.org/bitaddress It's funny - I'm satisfied it's 'safe' to download and run the https website on a LiveCD to generate an offline wallet (for bitcoin), but I'm not sure about the http version (for peercoin). Is there really any appreciable difference in risk? Could someone compromise the code hosted on http vs. https? 2 - If I can't use an unsecured http site to generate offline wallets, then I can certainly download the ppcoin-qt client and run that in LiveCD. I can get a receiving address, but I can't figure out how to input the analogous command to dumpprivkey that I see referenced for Bitcoin-qt. Is this command prompt not available in the current version, or do I have to setup a ppcoin.conf file in order to access the command prompt? I would want to write down (on paper) the private key associated with my wallet.dat file generated in the liveCD environment just in case I completely mess up any backing up/copying I do of the wallet.dat 2.5 - Which brings me to: Does it matter? Is it easier to just back up the wallet in the liveCD environment, and then store it on a truecrypt volume on a USB key? And then later just mount the truecrypt drive and import the wallet when I want access to the coins? My goal with ppcoin is to buy a few peercoins and then come back a few years later to see what's happened. I want everything to be offline until then. 3 - Can I use blockchain.info to find out about balances at peercoin addresses, or is that just for bitcoin? Is there an analogous service for peercoin? I would just want to check periodically that my offline address still has my peercoins, to satisfy my paranoia. Thank you very very much for any help. I feel like I could set myself up nicely with bitcoin, but I'm just not completely comfortable with peercoin's software just yet. Though I much prefer the idea of holding a few ppc compared to btc.
