  1. While doing I recent review of lots of PoS coins, I came across a few interesting features from other coins which I think would be great to get implemented with DNR, but would be interested to see what you all think. Here's a just a couple of ideas: 1. Masternodes made easy - We all know MNs are tricky to set up. They are near impossible to set up for those without a bit of computer knowledge. It would be great if Denarius developed a MN which could be set up just by downloading an application and installing. Alternatively (but possibly more difficult), would be the sale of Secure Home Nodes which can be plugged in at home and let to run a MN without much set up difficulty. See Bulwarks: https://bulwarkcrypto.com/secure-home-node/ 2. PoS lottery blocks - I also took this from Divi coin. Every week (or fortnight, or month) one user who holds over a certain quantity of DNR and stakes them will win a 'lottery block', which holds a significant quantity of DNR (could be a masternodes worth for example). Denarius is great, super fast and excellent for transactions- but having something new which will entice investors will benefit us all.
  2. Firstly, thanks to everyone on DenariusTalk and the Discord (especially Carsen) who has put up with my persistent questions and helped out with this project over the past few weeks. Hopefully this article will make it all worth it. Over the last month I have learned how to build my own stake box using a Raspberry Pi. Prior to doing this I had no practical knowledge of Raspberry Pi's or Linux whatsoever. It has been a steep learning curve! I looked at lots of different PoS cryptocurrencies and for a number of reasons decided to use Denarius to illustrate the example. While the primary goal is to help an absolute newbie build their own stake box, the guide may also encourage more people to get involved with Denarius, so feel free to share it around. https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@nzcrypto/guide-how-to-build-a-cryptocurrency-proof-of-stake-mining-box-for-absolute-newbies
  3. @Carsen @buzzkillb For future reference (I plan to help my friend with getting his own wallet sorted) should I follow buzzkillb's updated instructions, or use Carsen's original instructions? Or no matter?
  4. Never mind - somehow managed to get it sorted. I ended repeating the QT_SELECT=qt5 step, doing a ‘make clean’ and then following on from there.
  5. Carsen, I managed to successfully install denariusd on raspbian stretch, but after failing to get QT wallet working I decided to try on Ubuntu MATE. I keep receiving this error regarding QScroller. Any ideas? fatal error: QScroller: No such file or directory compilation terminated. Makefile:4299: recipe for target 'build/masternodemanager.o' failed make: *** [build/masternodemanager.o] Error 1
  6. Did you solve this error? I am receiving the same one: QScroller not found
  7. Also I am using Raspbian stretch on a Pi 3+
  8. Thanks, will do. Would you suggest using the instructions as per buzzkillb's post, or no matter? I think it may be something to do with the qmake vs qt creator versions, which I've tried to reconcile but no luck yet. sudo apt purge qt4* sudo apt-get install libqt5gui5 libqt5core5a libqt5dbus5 qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools export QT_SELECT=qt5 qmake -v
  9. Really not sure what I am doing wrong here... I manually installed the bitcoin repository info as I am using raspbian stretch On running make I receive the eventual error: Makefile:2440: recipe for target 'build/sendcoinsdialog.o' failed make: *** [build/sendcoinsdialog.o] Error 1 make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs.... Makefile:2492: recipe for target 'build/coincontroldialog.o' failed make: *** [build/coincontroldialog.o] Error 1 I'm stumped
  10. Thanks. Ended up doing full Berkeley install. I’m trying to compile the qt wallet now via Qt creator but receive an error regarding qmake. Do I need a specific kit or compiler? Currently only desktop kit installed.
  11. I am having trouble adding the BTC PPA When I enter this line sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin I receive this error Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 95, in <module> sp = SoftwareProperties(options=options) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 109, in __init__ self.reload_sourceslist() File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/softwareproperties/SoftwareProperties.py", line 599, in reload_sourceslist self.distro.get_sources(self.sourceslist) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/aptsources/distro.py", line 89, in get_sources (self.id, self.codename)) aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for Raspbian/stretch I've installed software-properties-common successfully before this Ideas?
