Hey guys, 2 questions regarding grin-wallet 3.0 - hoping I could get some help/feedback on them:

1). Having this issue when sending a grin transaction via RPC

"id": 1,
"jsonrpc": "2.0",
"result": {
"Err": {
"GenericError": "Wallet Communication Error: Tor Configuration required"

The curl command is:

curl -0 -XPOST -u grin:password --data '{ "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "init_send_tx", "params": {"args":{"src_acct_name":null, "amount":"500000000", "minimum_confirmations":10, "max_ouputs":500, "num_change_outputs":1, "selection_strategy_is_use_all":true, "message":null, "target_slate_version":null, "estimate_only":null,"payment_proof_recipient_address":null, "ttl_blocks":null, "send_args": {"method":"http", "dest":"http://xxxxxxx.onion", "finalize":true, "post_tx":true, "fluff":false}}}, "id": 1}'

Tor is running, I have a listener and a owner_api process running and have successfully received my tor receiving address when launching 'grin-wallet -e listener'

2). Is there a way to direct the tor process grin-wallet controls to a directory? For example, packing grin-wallet into an application with a tor executable and specifying that directory instead of checking the system path

@mattt21 this not work without tor too
they change owner api init_send_tx
lol if I read correct

In 2 hours from now (3PM UTC) we're having the first dev meeting of 2020.

We’re conducting the meeting on Keybase rather in this channel.

Instructions for how to join:

  1. Install Keybase (https://keybase.io) and create an account.
  2. Join the grin community:

    • From the app: Select “Teams” » “Join a team” and then type “grincoin”
    • From the command line: keybase team request-access grincoin
  3. Join the #dev channel:
    • From the app: Select “Chat” » “grincoin”, then press the cog wheel » ”Manage chat channels" and tap "#dev"
    • From the command line: keybase chat join-channel grincoin '#dev'

Keybase supports tor and command line access. More instructions and information available here:

you can pull it into grin-miner with something like git submodule update --remote --recursive

John Tromp
in cuckoo-miner/src/cuckoo_sys/plugins/CMakeLists.txt, can you comment out line 104 for building cuckatoo_mean_cuda_19 ?
and let me know if that causes problems?
@tromp This solved the compilation problem. Thank you! Now I have runtime problem

I'm trying to prepare for the upcoming Grin fork in 2 days for the cuckaroom algorithm. I'm not able to make grin-miner work and I have not managed to get any closed sourced miner that support cuckaroom algo. None of the recommended miners on https://floonet.grinmint.com/help.html support it currently. What miner will people use when the fork actually happen? Does anybody know any miner that currently support cuckaroom algorithm and is able to communicate with stratum pool protocol?

@rostfrei currently there is:
Hello guys, I need some help. What is the "token" param in the Grin wallet API v3?
(https://docs.rs/grin_wallet_api/3.0.0/grin_wallet_api/trait.OwnerRpcS.html#) I succeeded in generating the shared public key as well as encrypting the request and decrypting the response, but could not figure out where to find the "token".
SW van Heerden
Hi, I have a question regarding the header field "total_kernel_offset". Is there a reason why the total accumulated offset is stored in the header and not just the offset per block?
The only pro of doing it this way is that you can have the total when doing a complete chain validation. You dont have to look at every header and sum it.
But if you store it per block you can validate a block on its own and not in the chain, eg an orphan block that you dont yet have the parent for.
John Tromp
without parent you cannot check proof of work. checking PoW is first step before spending time on sig validation
Antioch Peverell
Hi @SWvheerden this is also to keep the data in the block header consistent - with the focus on full chain state per header (see various MMR root and size fields). Each header represents a full block of data that is appended to the existing full chain state. MMR are appended to and roots (and sizes) calculated. The kernel offset is added to in the same way.
SW van Heerden
Antioch Peverell
In the future we may implement "flyclient" and allow nodes to quickly sync without necessarily having validated all previous headers - the total offset comes in very useful in this scenario.

Anyone else ran across this while compiling cuckoo_miner v3.0.0-beta.1?

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.10/Modules/FindCUDA.cmake:1801 (add_library):
Cannot find source file:  cuckoo/src/cuckaroom/kernel.cuh

Photis Phudge

Found it!

git submodule update --remote —recursive
cargo clean
cargo buildrelease

did the trick.

Mark Renten
i see the igno persona is alive and well https://github.com/mimblewimble/grin-wallet/releases is igno back to active?
or is it someone else?
Quentin Le Sceller
It’s just that the release automated process uses its github token :).
Mark Renten
aww :/ nvm then lol
Just spoke to Poloniex, who recently (12h before the fork) disabled GRIN deposit and withdrawals. They just replied to say that the "GRIN wallet is not working properly at the moment" and that they have no timeline for re-enabling it. I wanted to mention it in case any one of you wants to reach out to help them ... I presume they wanted to upgrade to 3.0 and ran into issues.
Quentin Le Sceller
good to know, it seems their support is not (always) aware of what the dev team and marketing team is doing, as their reply to me saying it's not working and no ETA was after that tweet

I'm attempting to build grin targeting aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu to run on my raspberry pi.

I'm getting an error

= note: /usr/lib/gcc-cross/aarch64-linux-gnu/7/../../../../aarch64-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -lncursesw
          collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

When I run sudo apt-get install libncursesw5-dev it says I already have that library installed. Where should I go from here?

Blade Doyle
@tenthousandlakesmn I believe this chat group is defunct. Everybody moved to keybase.
Re, building grin libcurses requirement: Please try: sudo apt-get install libncurses5 libncursesw5
you will also need libssl-dev clang libclang-dev llvm-dev
@tenthousandlakesmn i built on my rapsberry pi with no issues, just followed the grin wiki build instructions and it worked
@johndavies24 @bladedoyle thank you for your replies
i didnt change anything, built the same way as i did on ubuntu and debian, just sudo apt install all the dependencies, install rust with the script and git pull and cargo build. I was surprised it worked so well on arm
i have a pi4 though, i know the beam raspberry pi instructions mentions making swap space if you dont have enough ram
@johndavies24 I over came the memory issue using the -p flag to build regex, syn, serde_derive etc. the regular cargo build --release command seems to be working excellent. fingers crossed.
Quentin Le Sceller
Nice @tenthousandlakesmn
@johndavies24 @quentinlesceller I ended up building most of the grin_* crates one at a time. with that being said my pi grin node is syncing! no cross compilation needed.
