Bounty: 1.5 Million DOGE for the first person to create an electrum equivalent for dogecoin.
Houston, we have a problem. The current dogechain over 1.4gb in size. This is incredibly bloated. As time goes on, the size of the blockchain will only continue to increase, making sync times longer. Long sync times are bad because they may scare off newcomers who may need to download for hours or days before using dogecoin. For obvious reasons, this is very bad. Bitcoin has solved this problem by creating electrum and multibit, which are wallets that stores the blockchain online, but the wallet data locally. This allows for very small wallet sizes, with all the security features of having a local wallet. We must do the same thing. We have therefore decided to offer millions of dogecoins for anyone that can create an electrum equivalent for dogecoin. If any shibes wants to help increase the size of this bounty, please donate to DMxCwo7qJphRVeC6pHcoDHaizk55pg6iNt . This address will only ever be used for the pot.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS -- If you are working on this project, please check here for important updates every few days
1: I see a lot of people tipping. I've already said this once, but I'll say it again. Please don't tip if your intention is to add to the pot. Send directly. I bear no responsibility if your funds are misplaced or accidentally lost.
2: I am now aware that an android wallet exists. Although I thought it was obvious from context, let me reaffirm this: I would like a wallet that works on Windows/Mac/Linux, and has an easy to use installer, rather than necessitating some kind of android emulator to port it over to a computer. It must be newbie friendly.
4: 15th of February is the final deadline for wallet entree submissions. Please message me with FULL DETAILS (including name, download information, website, user guide, other info, and so on) of your wallet to submit. Users will then get 1 week to try out different wallets and form an opinion of them. A week later, I will open up a poll for voting on which wallet is the best. Whichever wallet gets the most votes will obtain the prizepool. About 400k of the pot will be reserved for consolidation prizes, to be distributed at discretion. (So that shibes who didn't win won't feel sad).
If you do not see your name or entree on here within 48 hours of messaging me, please message me again until I add it. Final Update: Given the incredibly close results of the poll, the Developers and I have privately discussed how best to distribute the bounty. They have mutually agreed to a 50-50 split. The bounty has been paid out. Cheers. People who have pledged to directly donate to the developers, please message me. Thank you
I had about $8 USD worth of bitcoin in a wallet, and I backed up the wallet.dat to my dropbox. According to the modified date of the file this was in April 2013, so it was probaby from bitcoin qt version 0.8.1, or maybe a little earlier. I basically left it there and haven't done anything with bitcoin since then. Since it is worth probably at least $100 now I decided to check the exact amount. I downloaded the latest version of bitcoin core, added the wallet.dat file to the data directory, started it with -rescan, and waited almost a month (!) for the blockchain data to get up to date. The balance showed as 0 the whole time. I thought it would update once the blockchain was totally downloaded, but it still just says 0. Is this a problem with old vs new versions? Did I do something wrong? Next time, should I expect the balance to show a non-zero amount even if I haven't downloaded the whole blockchain yet? Update: ok, I feel kind of dumb, turns out the transaction was made in a multibit wallet, not a bitcoin qt wallet, but I still have a copy of that too. I opened the wallet in the latest version of multibit classic, and it has the receiving address in question, and checking the address on blockchain.info I can see that it received the transaction... but the transaction and the balance both don't show in the program. I wonder if I need the same multibit version I had before? the transaction was made in feb 2014 Update 2: was able to use the private key to sweep the balance into electrum
Are we overlooking pgp verification of wallet installation files?
I am curious how many people use pgp to verify the new version of their favorite wallet software every time a new version comes out? To me it seems like pgp verification isn't taken very seriously. Most, but not all vendors will put out new pgp signature files with each new release however if you are relatively unaware of security this could mean you are unknowingly missing a very important step. Importing the authors pgp key, downloading the associated signature file and then verifying the executable isn't very obvious to those who aren't security savvy. However it is an obvious security hole and a potential honeypot for anyone looking for some easy coin. One thing I find disturbing is how few of the major wallet developers put any significant effort into educating their users on the first step of securing their hot wallet. Multibit and armory are the only two clients I know of that give any information on pgp verification, but even multibit misses this important step on their "How to install" page. Electrum doesn't even provide a signature file for their linux version instead providing a hyperlink with an md5 hash appended to it. Bitcoin-qt from what I can tell only provides sha256 hashes of their files with zero instruction on how to use them. To me it seems like the pgp step of securing a wallet is looked at as the boring minor tidbit that you have to have that nobody really wants to put time into resulting in most vendors throwing up some hashes/signatures with little to no information on how to use them. I think that all vendors should have a section with instructions on how to verify their software, put this as the second step in getting started with their software right after the download step and make sure to provide pgp signatures for each installer package and not just hashes. For me, not being a security expert, I feel much safer verifying a pgp signature vs checking that a hash matches. With bitcoins being targeted on a daily basis through incredibly creative means this seems to me like a giant gaping hole that could be fought with a very small amount of education. Just a thought. Edit: because I suck at the grammarEdit: after digging around I found the electrum signature files for linux. There is no direct link to the page from their website but they can be found here: http://download.electrum.org/
