Let’s make a backup again, just in case.
Now, let’s delete existing blockchain data.
Open the Finder app, and, in the top menu, select Go > Go to Folder.
The folder you see, is your Reddcoin data folder.
Delete the following folders:
Delete the following files:
You previously downloaded this file: https://download.reddcoin.com/bin/bootstrap/blockchain-Nov-26-2020.zip. Do you still have it? If not, please download it again.
Find the downloaded file and move it to your Reddcoin data folder (the folder where you previously deleted files). The
blockchain-Nov-26-2020.zip should now be in the same folder as a file named
Double click the
blockchain-Nov-26-2020.zip file. It will unpack/extract/unzip. After this step is completed, you will see 2 new folders:
You can delete the
If you can’t find the
blockchain-Nov-26-2020.zip after it’s downlaoded:
- I don’t know by heart how macOS handles the download of .zip file. If the file is unpacked/extracted/unzipped immediately after the download finishes, I assume you’ll find a folder named
blockchain-Nov-26-2020 with the 2 previously mentioned
chainstate in it. If this is the case, you can just move (cut/paste) the 2 folders into the Reddcoin folder.
Now, start Reddcoin Core. It still needs to sync 10 weeks worth of blockchain data. Leave Reddcoin Core open, do not make any new transaction.
You can follow the progress via Help -> Debug window. ‘Last block time’ should increase.
Also, to make sure the sync finishes quickly, do the following:
- Go to: Help -> Debug window -> Peers.
- Make the window and columns wider if needed, you are interested in the ‘User Agent’ (2nd) column.
- User agent
Reddcoin Core:3 is OK.
- User agent
Reddcoin Core:2 is not OK. If you see on of these, right click on it and select ‘ban node for 1 year’.
After the blockchain is fully synced, the transaction you made earlier to me, should also be removed (restored to your balance). You now can create a new transaction.
When making a new transaction, do this (in the Send window) to ensure a speedy transaction:
- Enter the receiving address and the amount.
- Click on ‘Choose…’ at the bottom.
- Select ‘Custom’.
- Select ‘total at least’.
- Set value of ‘total at least’: 1 RDD.
- Uncheck ‘Send as zero-fee transaction’.
- Make the transaction.
(When I do this, the transaction fee ends up being 0.1 RDD.)
This will make sure your transaction fee is higher than 0.001 RDD and thus your transaction will be confirmed quickly.
Let me know how it went.
