If you find yourself not on the same block as shown here (after fork on 18 March 2016) : http://explorer.shadow.cash/chain/ShadowCash
Quickest way to get in sync is:
- Close Wallet
- Download : https://github.com/ShadowProject/blockchain/releases/download/latest/blockchain.zip
- Delete blk001.dat and txleveldb from Shadowcoin app directory
- Extract downloaded file into Shadowcoin app directory
- Start client
- Check against explorer again
Where is the Shadowcoin app directory?
Why did this happen?
Some blocks did not synchronize in the right order, as a result the stake modifiers were incorrect. We were closely inspecting the hardfork as it happened and we were able to fix this in a very timely fashion. As a result we had to put an emergency break on the exchanges, causing bittrex to stop trading and poloniex didn't stop trading but decided to stop transfers.
