In my experiences using BTS wallet, the best combination I can get is “linux + BTS_command_line + web_wallet”, which runs steadily and syncs fast. However, I found the most common combination is “windows+ BTS GUI”, which consumesa lot resources and frequently have no connection at all. So for users using BTS wallet in windows, I would like to introduce a solution to you. 1.Make sure your BTS wallet is closed
You can check in process manager if your BTS wallet is already closed 2. Find your location of your BTS binary
Mostly it would be ” C:\Program Files\BitShares\bin”3. Open command line interface and change the directory to where the BTS binary resides::
enter the following command:
cd C:\Program Files\BitShares\bin4. Enter the following command and hit enter to run the command line version of BTS wallet
Bitshares_client.exe5. After the BTS wallet is started, you would get a lot of info::
That last line ‘---there are now 5 active connections to the p2p network’ means there are 5 connections currently.
If you haven’t open your wallet for a while, you would see something like:
When you see “--- in sync with p2p network”, it means the blockchain is in sync.
By the way, if you just upgraded to a new version requiring re-index of blockchain, you would get:
Just wait for it.6. When the blockchain is synced, you can leave BTS command line using ‘exit’:7. Now, when you open the BTS GUI wallet, you will find it is ready:
Moreover, if I want to keep my wallet in sync but not consuming so many resources,
I can also use this method to keep bitshares_client, and open GUI when I need it.
