Coins stuck in limbo = no lambo :(
« on: December 29, 2017, 03:57:39 am »
 Hello, I've been HODLing SXC for a while, given the recent rise in price I tried to sell some at cryptopia and livecoin.

Linux Wallet synced ok.

First transaction to cryptopia went smoothly, second transaction to livecoin got stuck in limbo.

Livecoin address should work ok, as I've sent before a small amount with no problem.

Did I lose the coins?

I sent the two transactions one next to the other, could that be the problem?


TX ID to Cryptopia OK
09a673e877d099ecceac4338c19148244e717a9077337c35e55acc19483434e2

TX ID to Livecoin -ERROR-
90173fb4d84e07c543ee55afad64b80e299bf3ad1f53970771a7d524571d148a

I just saw this on BCT and thought I would reply here also:

The coins are not lost, the transaction is not on the blockchain.

What client version are you using? ( help|About Sexcoin )

EDIT: I just noticed there is no line in the detail for reporting transaction flags. I'm betting you are almost certainly on 0.6.4.x.
Make a backup of your wallet.dat file, download and install the new client ( https://sexcoin.info/downloads.php ).
Start the new client, you will need to re-download the entire blockchain ( sorry, but the new client needs to do this ).
After the blockchain is sync'd, replace the new wallet.dat file with the old wallet.dat .

IF the transaction still does not go through, you will need to restart the client with '-zapwallettxes=1' to free the coins up. After that, you will be able to create a new, valid transaction to send the coins.

The old wallet has approximately a 70% transaction failure rate because of the changes to the sexcoin network. You got lucky on your first send.

NOTE: We've had reports of the Mac client taking a long time to sync ( days according to some reports ). My tests have shown that it is probably because of wi-fi going to sleep or the computer going to sleep. Use a wired connection if possible and stop the Mac from going to sleep. You can also use the bootstrap file to help speed this up: https://github.com/sexcoin-project/sexcoin-bootstrap

Hi,

Yes on Windows 10 - have tried all updates and new version - still stuck in a re-start loop, when you start programme it immediately crashes and restarts 5 secs later. It is stuck like this , whatever version i install?

This is odd, probably the first report I've seen describing this behavior. I'm just taking a stab here...
  • Do you have administrator rights on the computer?
  • Make certain that any client has been successfully closed before starting a new one, you may have to check your task manager to be sure.
  • Don't use 0.6.4.6 or earlier... period.
  • Sexcoin causes a false positive in some anti-virus software, could your anti-virus be interferring? Add Sexcoin to the whitelist if it is.
  • Are you certain you have enough disk space?
  • The "debug.log" file can be helpful in chasing down problems: Help|Debug Window ... Information|Debug log file(button)
