Ltc litecoin analysis
Dear Community, I just downloaded the litecoin application to store my coins offline. I generated a address to receive my coins but it did not generate a private key for this stupidly. The litecoin sync has crashed at least 10 times on sync with a error bad data block error.
If I look up the transaction i can see that my litecoins have not been redeemed. What is the best approach to make sure that I get my coins? Do I just need to wait until it finally syncs and see if they appear in the wallet. Odd thing is in my receive transaction window I dont see the original receiving address.
I downloaded the application litecoin core from litecoin. After some research I can see that the transaction is not redeemed checked this on http: Main issue I have at the moment is that the sync keeps failing. Each time I run it it does get further in processing the transactions.
I am hoping that once the sync is done that the coins are redeemed and show up in my offline wallet. Try and not make the same mistake I did. Make sure you sync the blocks first, then create a private key then send the coins offline.
Openly the software should work by processing recent transactions 1st and not blocks from 5 years ago. Makes more sense to me this way. If you generated an address…then you generated a private key…the private keys are stored internally in your software and not on the network…you are the only one with access to them… you need to wait until the wallet finishes syncing before you do anything at all first…and make sure you have your backup containing that address as it is now the only way to get your private key….
Disk read error…are you sure you have at least 25 gb of free space for the blockchain? Once you are sure your backup is in place and you renamed it wallet.
I have plenty memory and space. I will do the memory check like you mentioned and see if something is wrong and then try the steps above. My hard disk was encrypted and this is why I was getting this disk error.
I moved it to another machine and copied the wallet across did the re-scan and it worked 1st time. I think one improvement to the software would be to give a warning message on uninstall to take a backup of your digital wallet. If you have a litecoin address send it to me as your info was helpful. Did you check the transaction on blockchain info? Bittrex is getting hammered by traffic right now it could just be slow.
I have restarted it in -salvagewallet mode, rescan mode, reindex mode and it never finishes. Willing to send 1 LTC if someone helps me find a solution. Can you post the address you send your coins to? If you generated an address…then you generated a private key…the private keys are stored internally in your software and not on the network…you are the only one with access to them… you need to wait until the wallet finishes syncing before you do anything at all first…and make sure you have your backup containing that address as it is now the only way to get your private key… if you have your backup…open you appdata folder located here: Thanks for the reply.
I am still having problems syncing. Windows 10 running 64 bit. I am consistently getting the message at different stages:
