Steem Windows Wallet and Miner v0.12.0

in #steem5 years ago (edited)

MS Windows build of Steem v0.12.0 is released.

You will need Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 . Download it here -

From Steem github, changes made in this release are :

Issue #176

Each root level comment has a reward weight which impacts the end payout of the post. We are targeting 4 posts in 24 hours. Your first 4 posts in 24 hours will not be penalized. After that, they weight is decreased from 100% based on your average posting frequency. Having a frequency just barely higher than 1 every 6 hours will have very little impact, while spamming will be penalized heavily. This change is aimed to increase the quality of content at the cost of quantity.

Issue #177

Each discussion goes through a two stage payout. The first one is nearly identical to what currently happens on a new discussion except that we are weighting payout times by 12 hours instead of 24. This should cycle through currently trending content quicker. There is a second voting period set to 30 days after the first payout. This should help posts that don't have immediate viral success accumulate votes and have more consistent payouts in the long run. After the second payout a discussion becomes "frozen". The discussion is no longer editable and new replies are disabled. Users can still vote on comments in these discussions as a "nod" to the author without costing their posting power or awarding reward shares.

Issue #178

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding liquidity rewards. We are refraining from making a judgment at this point but want to spend more time reviewing their impact. We do believe that in their current form the liquidity rewards are simply too much for the value thy provide. As such, we are temporarily disabling liquidity rewards until we can design a better solution. In the meantime, a transaction fee free market should be incentive enough for users to continue to use the Steem internal market.

Issue #179

The average block size calculation is too high. We are reducing the minimum block size limit from 128k to 64k and changing the average block size threshold from max_block_size / 2 to max_block_size / 4. The net result is that the average block size threshold can be 4 times smaller. If witnesses chose to vote this way, it will make triggering transaction bandwidth limits easier, which is currently not applying except in the most extreme circumstances.

Issue #184

Fixed a bug in the cli wallet that incorrectly allowed the wallet to attempt to broadcast an update account operation from a locked wallet. The broadcast would fail but created a poor user experience.

Issue #186

Added recovery operations to account history so they can be tracked more easily.


Hey, @bitcube please share in what cryptocurrencies you invested?

P.S it's very interesting to know where smart people invest.

Great! We are making good progess. Guys, it wont take long until Steemit will trump facebook in every aspect!

Nice one. I despise FB

Thank you for creating the window binaries so fast. Greatly appreciated.


I'm having a problem running steemd, after syncing it keeps getting this exception:

1802897ms th_a fork_database.cpp:41 push_block ] Pushing block to fork database that failed to link: 003510042130ea4b3505c52f54b3418437fc853b, 3477508

th_a fork_database.cpp:62 steemit::chain::fork_database::_push_block

I've tried --replay and --resync, but then it gets stuck syncing the blockchain about 16 hours ago.

I went back to v11 to --resync successfully. v11 worked correctly again. Then I tried v12 again. Same issue is now occurring, "unlinkable_block_exception".

Its working now ... after restarting a couple of times, it seems to have fixed itself.

All the devs are doing a fantastic job, keep up the great work and in no time well be stealing the social network show.

will there also be a wallet for Mac?

Hope I'm not too late this time..

the miner work for me

Do you just get started? The miner works great for me! I posted a tutorial (not mine) here in the comments.

If you want a tutorial for setting up a windows miner, this seems to be the classic post to start by @tuck-ftheman (and yea ... seems to run better on Linux - even in a VM inside Windows)

Thanks a lot! :)

I have a crash on empty database:

can you run a node with it ?
