Einsteinium wallet backup!

PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE WALLET.DAT FILE AND MAKE A BACKUP OF IT.

Since we get numerous reports where users delete their whole einsteinium data directory and lost their coins please note that einsteinium data directory contains file that is called wallet.dat which stores your private keys and if that file is permanently deleted there is no way to restore your private keys and you will lose your coins. Always make backup of your wallet.dat file so even if you accidentally delete it or have problem with your computer’s HDD you will have a backup.


By default wallet.dat file is located on the following locations:

Windows Vista, 7, 10: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Einsteinium\

Linux: /home/[username]/.einsteinium/

MacOS: /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Einsteinium/

Or you can make a backup directly within Einsteinium Wallet application.

Following steps are explaining how to backup your wallet on Windows OS, but procedure is pretty similar on all other platforms.

  Run Einsteinium Wallet and go to "File -> Backup Wallet…”

Run Einsteinium Wallet and go to "File -> Backup Wallet…”

  Choose location where you want to save your backup, enter preferred file name and click save.

Choose location where you want to save your backup, enter preferred file name and click save.

  Wallet will make backup file on chosen location and it will look something like this.

Wallet will make backup file on chosen location and it will look something like this.

Keep your backup file in a secure location. You can even transfer it to another computer, USB drive etc.

If you ever need to restore wallet just replace existing wallet.dat file with your backup file.

If you are not experienced with cryptocurrency wallets installation, backup or update please ask for assistance via our official communication channels (telegram / discord) or write mail to us via form on the contact page.

Einsteinium Developers

Wallet update, please do not make transactions

emc2-upgrade-image

Dear EMC2  holders,

On 10/17/18 Einsteinium network experienced a real 51% attack. Komodo dPoW, that we implemented in our code recently, kicked in and protected the chain. We are very pleased that this solution worked well and that Einsteinium chain is protected from any attacks in the future.

IMPORTANT: At this point please do not make any EMC2 transactions until the new EMC2 Lightsaber wallet is fully deployed to the field (Poloniex is still running old wallet version).

We are working and helping all major participators to upgrade to the new version. If you need any assistance please contact us at: developer@emc2.foundation

Since dPoW implementation into EMC2 is complete and well tested we will release new wallet (Lightsaber) builds and tutorial in next 24~48 hours on our official website www.emc2.foundation.

WeeeeCash deposits/withdrawals and registration has been temporarily frozen for necessary upgrade to the new wallet version.

Meanwhile we urge all miners and exchanges that are still running old wallet version (0.13.48) to upgrade to the latest (0.13.5). Code is available in “master” branch on our github: https://github.com/emc2foundation/einsteinium

If you are miner please make sure that you are mining on pools that are running latest wallet version (0.13.5) or your rewarded coins will not be spendable on exchanges.

Update on algo change

EMC2 Algo change update

1. Researching Ethash (concept and implementation) - Done

2. Implementing Ethash in Einsteinium core. - Done

In this stage, Ethash algorithm was rewritten from original implementation of Ethereum.

3. Implementing changes in block structure. - Done

Ethash demands some attributes in block header that do not exist in current Einsteinium version. Also, adding those attributes will help in next stage.

4. Implementing algo version conditions - Done

In order to use existing genesis and create hardfork, it was needed to create condition that will check block number and swich algo.

5. Testing block broadcast. – In progress

Functions that verify broadcasted blocks need to be updated…

6. Implementing changes in existing EMC2 stratum. – In progress

Current implementation of Stratum protocol cannot handle new attributes in block structure and API calls.

We are making the progress with ETH hash, but we do not exclude possibility to implement some other good algo, or even multi algo scenario. It would be core devs call.
