    Last stable. Ticket purchase error. (0.1.0). I have 41 immature and 7DCR balance so it should not be trying to purchase. Thought it might help someone. It seems to have worked fine, otherwise, for weeks.

    @Bill Threewits It looks like you are trying to spend funds you dont actually have. Recreate from seed and everything should be fine.

    Great work devs!
    What do u people think will the price of 1 dcr be after around 1-2 months?
    Currently its value has diminished since the launch.

    Speculation...

    What we need is a way or place for people to spend DCR.
    Which in turn needs a GUI wallet for ease of use for the masses.
    Which needs an API for web developers to build a shopping system.

    Let's get to work guys... :)

    Also, remember that DCR is still in it's infancy, just born on Feb 8th to the world. Go read the constitution again to know what this coin is all about, and why it will succeed.

    Pretty sure that it will be successful in the long run.
    What about the next few months?

    First is Bitcoin and will always be. Second is Ethereum and there is not even one place accepting it for buying products. And Decred is FAR behind Dash and Litecoin...

    I've updated from v0.1.2 to v0.1.3 a few days ago and it's running with no problems so far.

    Bitcoin is top dog right now, and I have a lot currently riding in BTC, but it doesn't mean you can't have 2 horses in the race. Ethereum is not (as I see it) a coin for "the masses", as it's currently very difficult to use, and even with it's huge head start, seems to still be in it's infancy, tho the price is now over $9. It's being mined naturally because it's profitable, and thus miners want to learn about it and get it set up correctly.

    Dash and Litecoin had an even greater head start so that's expected, tho they're at ~$7 and $4 respectively.

    All these coins however rely on designated devs who must perform or it doesn't progress. They also rely on internal (and external) politics that may conflict the progression of the project, no matter what the actual devs want to do about it or the outcry of the masses.

    DCR is "actually" in it's infancy and still needs to learn to walk, then run.

    Does anyone else see this?

    Was trying to apply for a Visa card, but really? You can't be living in United States to get one?

    @ceejep Sometimes getstakeinfo returns me wrong allmempooltix value. About 2 hours and a half ago on ticket price ~16.6, it was returning me 11 while it should return over 500. I think this is happening when mempool values are high (over 100). drcd and dcrwallet were properly synced.

    I have a file with getstakeinfo and feeinfo logged every minute and I do not see anything strange.
    Starting on 2016/5/19 11:30 GMT with 10,10,10,338,501,.... going up to 951 at 12:59 GMT and then going slowly down to 46 at 18:19 GMT when the logging stopped. I can try to plot a graph if interested.

    after creating new wallet trying to get address, but see warning:
    decred-windows-386_0.1.3>dcrctl -u user -P pass --wallet getaccountaddress default
    -4: failed to generate child 4294967295: cannot derive a hardened key from a pub
    lic key

    another requests (getinfo, getstakeinfo) work good.

    I think I saw that before. Probably dcrctl --wallet getnewaddress helped.

    help getnewaddress
    getnewaddress ("account" verbose=false)

    Generates and returns a new payment address.

    Arguments:
    1. account (string, optional) DEPRECATED -- Account name the new address will belong to (default="default")
    2. verbose (boolean, optional, default=false) Show pub key as well as address

    Result:
    "value" (string) The payment address
