Confirmation time, is this normal?
« on: November 16, 2013, 01:06:50 PM »

Hello,

I am trying to send some protoshares from my qt client for the first time, it has been nearly 1 hour and it is at 0 confirmations. Is this normal? It seemed that receiving was almost instant. Why is it taking so long? Its fully synced.

Thanks!

could you post the TX id?

and add an extra seed node

From console (Help -> Debug -> Console)

addnode 94.23.215.174 add

Another test transaction just completed, it was for 1pts to coingrounds. I started it 1 hour after the other ones. Maybe adding your node helped.

Status: 12 confirmations
Date: 11/16/2013 05:51

The other transactions are still unconfirmed and holding up some of my coins, should I somehow delete them or wait?

I'm guessing its windows being gay. Is there a guide somewhere to set it up for ubuntu?

Edit: Found the guide, will try it on ubuntu https://github.com/InvictusInnovations/ProtoShares/blob/psforkinit/doc/readme-qt.rst

Or could it be because

version" : 80500,
"protocolversion" : 70001,
"walletversion" : 60000,
"blocks" : 18936,
"timeoffset" : 0,
"connections" : 8,
"proxy" : "",
"difficulty" : 0.00051405,
"testnet" : false,
"keypoololdest" : 1384426982,
"keypoolsize" : 101,
"paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
"errors" : ""

paytxfee ==0 , is that normal? Maybe because its not paying tx fee its acting super slow?

at coinsgrounds right now, many people are having this issue all of a sudden.  I withdrew some PTS from bter 2 hours ago and still don't have them.  bter doesn't pay transaction fees appartently, but that's out of my control.  sent dozen of transactions over the last couple days with 0 transaction fee and never had an issue.  something isn't right here.

The slow confirmation times appear to be the result of one or more miners having adopted a policy of refusing to include more than one transaction per block.  See here:

http://btsblock.com/chain/ProtoShares

Ypool (the largest pool) appears to be one the bad actors.  If you compare block numbers from their stats page to the blockchain explorer, it looks like all of ypool's blocks are only including 1 transaction at most.

Thus, everyone trying to send PTS through the network is having to wait until someone else (such as the beeeeer pool) find a block, at which point a bunch of transactions finally get included in a block.

Why would they refuse transactions?

I hadn't realized this was going on, but was noticing that most of my transactions took 2-4 blocks before getting confirmed, even though I paid the fees.  At least now I know why that was happening.

If I had to guess they assumed that refusing transactions would reduce the orphan count and thus give their pool an edge.   Overall ypool seems to be a bad actor and I would highly recommend supporting another pool.
