Why is the new mist ethereum wallet being so troublesome

@jdmcwhinnie Because cryptocurrency tools are at the moment designed for technically sophisticated people, not the ignorant masses.

Wow that's nice of you ass hole
Ntp updated geth --fast --cache=1024 and still fails at the very end. If phalexo can get mine going I will call him a sophisticated person and until then you are also part of the ignorant mass!
I've probably been doing this longer than you phalexo

What node client would you guys recommend for wallet development? I've used bcoin and lcoin in the past and they have a nice http api, is there an ethereum node client like that out there?
@Cristi12 these are the install instructions for go-ethereum
So does anyone ever answer questions in this gitter? I've seen a lot of questions and not a single one answered

The only response in the last few days was one guy saying crypto was "not for the ignorant masses". Should I adopt that attitude? Will it get me farther?

Alright assface, I don't want to use any shitty JSON-RPC api to make a convoluted interface between my application and the node. Any of you nerds know of a better node client with a somewhat usable api?

The less autistic api the better. But you know, no points taken off for a little autism. I'll just make it better if it's inconsistent
Good enough @KenoLeon ?

@Cristi12 have you tried not using gith?
And using something else
Because it sounds like gith isn't working
I don't even know what gith is

Sep 14 2017 17:11
Sounds pretty user friendly. @Cristi12 are you working with terminal or do you have some desktop shit running? If you're new to this.. I'd recommend going with something with a gui
Keno Leon
@KenoLeon
Sep 14 2017 17:12
@Cristi12 : Do you need to run a full node, initial sync takes for ever depending on your hardware connection, etc. Can't you use another client like parity ? Would love to help you but I need to know what you are trying to achieve.

New to cryptocurrency and you're taking a swing at ethereum first? Bold move cotton
You're new to cryptocurrency right? What's important is learning what to do and how to do it first. Don't go all in and buy a few grand worth of ether when you're so new. Or buy it and keep it on the exchange until you're confident you won't lose it with your own wallet
The wallet probably has a testnet feature. Get ether coins from a faucet and fuck around with multiple wallets until you find one you like
ether testnet coins** from a faucet

@Cristi12 geth -light has conflicts with the ethereum wallet, what you are going through is unfortunately normal right now, I can point you to parity which is faster, but if all you need is to store your ethereum offline get a hardware wallet.
