Wallet Sync Temporary Solution


#1

We apologize for any inconvenience that the swing wallet not working has caused! We are actively working on resolving the issue permanently. For now, please see below.

Remember - wallet issues DO NOT result in loss of your coins. Your coins live on the blockchain - as long as you have your wallet.dat and/or your private keys, you are safe.

DOWNLOAD LATEST 1.1.5.1: https://github.com/bitcoinz-pod/bitcoinz-wallet/releases

Solution

Close your wallet
Goto %AppData%\BitcoinZ
Delete all EXCEPT your wallet.dat
Re-run your wallet - give it some time to try and find connections to continue the sync from where it left off.

IF connections remain at 0 after a reasonable amount of time, then:

Close your wallet
Edit your bitcoinz.conf file located at %AppData%\BitcoinZ
Edit your bitcoinz.conf with Notepad, Textpad, or Notepad++ to include:

addnode=34.211.79.94
addnode=86.11.170.170
addnode=173.249.11.207
addnode=46.101.249.50
addnode=btcz.kovach.biz
addnode=seed.btcz.life
addnode=bzseed.secnode.tk
addnode=btzseed.blockhub.info
addnode=btcz-us.crypt29.net
addnode=btcz.vnminers.com
addnode=dnsseed.ppcall.ru

Restart your wallet

A new release for the windows binary here: https://github.com/renuzit/bitcoinz-win/releases/tag/1.1.5_2
Basically, drop in and replace the ‘zcashd’ file in the gui with this one and it should resolve any issues.


#3

We’ve released a new version of the swing wallet that contains the patched daemon. This should resolve all EOF errors. Thanks all the work @renuzit on slack did to get this up and running!

#5

The official wallet repo on github has now been updated with the patch that resolves the EOF error.


#6

A new “official” release of the BitcoinZ Windows Wallet has been released to bitcoinz-pod. Anyone using the ‘patched’ wallet should upgrade to the official release. You can download it here:

More than likely a reindex will need to be performed on the blockchain database. If you get a “EOF” error, click on the “reindex.bat” application found in the “tools” folder.
