@jeffanthony I see, thank you for your response! I can't believe someone even did. Is there maybe a place I can brush up on the Solidity code for the Address Reciever or Uint Amoutn

Hey everyone!
I'm trying to use Mist for the first time, I tried it both on a private and public networks, but after waiting for hours I just can't get the browser to start, it just keeps downloading blocks... What should I do?

Don 't change networks and leave it to update...its a pain, but it shouldn't take too long.

@brdtrpp thanks for the reply! I'll do that :smile: So, I just need to do it one time? Or will I have to do it again if I change from private to a public network?

@smbss Because the blockchain is always being added to it will need to be kept up to date. But if you keep the browser open it updates automatically.
Are you trying to develop/code anything?

@brdtrpp Ok, got it! Thank you :) Yes, I'm just starting to learn Ethereum development, my goal is to create an ERC20 token, do you have any tips on how I should approach this? For example, do you think all the Ethereum tutorials are relevant for this or should I follow a specific one?

in creating a crowdsale do the purchasers of the token own a part of the company or are they donating?

What type of software/system do I need to run the etherum cryp-currency code?

hi! Does anyone know of any up-to-date resources for learning Solidity and generally how to write smart contracts?
The "greeter" tutorial is out of date and I've become a little skeptical about other sources I'm finding as well

@smbss It'll go much faster if you do a quick sync
e.g., geth --fast --cache=1024
Using that I was able to sync in ~1 hr instead of days or however long it would take otherwise
