I transfered a bunch of money to my Armory wallet, but when I set it up, I accidentally set it to offline so I can't receive all of the money. It has already been completed on coinbase so I can't get it back.. I've been trying to get this for days and the only solution I could find was reinstalling it on another computer but I can't do that because my other is windows 32 bit, armory is only for 64 on windows unfortunately :( can anyone help? Thanks!
The latest version of the 64-Bit Armory Bitcoin Wallet (on Ubuntu) crashes after it finishes synchronisation, but before it does the scan. Any ideas?
It will reach the end of the sync, and then just exit/crash out, leaving bitcoin-qt running in the background. I am running Armory off a small SSD & and bitcoin-qt off my main storage HDD. Could it be failing to allocate space to build the databases? with the terminal command:
Trying to install armory bitcoin wallet on raspberry pi. [Help]
Hi I recently just bought my first raspberry pi (model a+) and have installed the latest version of raspbian on it. I am having issues however, with installing the armory application on it. I have been to the armory website and downloaded the latest offline version of armory for rasbian and then launched the install script on the pi. I believe that the script installed the application however, nothing happens when I launch the application. I have never used raspbian or any linux based operating systems before so please bare with me if I'm doing something really stupid. I assume that I am missing some other packages that need to be installed but I have no idea which ones. Armory runs on python on raspbian and I am not sure if I need to install some python packages or if they are pre-installed into the OS. I tried watching this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32lovaPtZws and it was very straight forward however, the links to the packages and armory files are now dead. As I said I am a complete noob at raspbian so I would really appreciate any help possible with getting armory to launch on pi. Thanks!
How to get Armory to use Bitcoin-Qt's block chain on OSX?
I have Bitcoin-Qt installed and synced on OSX Snow Leopard. When I open Armory, the status shown in the Dashboard area says "Preparing Database". When I check out Armory Bitcoin Client > Preferences, I see that "Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind management is not available on OSX". Is it possible to get Armory to use Bitcoin-Qt's block chain on OSX, or will Armory need to download and verify a second, complete block chain? edit: spelling edit: It appears that Armory on OS X is configured by default to use the Bitcoin-Qt block chain. All I had to do is wait ~3 hours for synchronization. edit: Bitcoin-Qt must be running at the same time as Armory. Shutting down Bitcoin-Qt will take Armory offline.
Endlessly confused trying to download and launch Bitcoin Armory on macOS 10.15
Discovered Armory probably 7 years ago, couldn't figure it out then either! I am trying to download and launch bitcoin Armory for the first time on macOS 10.15.6. I have downloaded the entire blockchain on the most recent update of Bitcoin Core, stored on an external HD. I've tried following guides on a few different forums but they are either long outdated, or beyond my technical prowess because I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. When I launch the Armory application, I get the immediate window that "Armory cannot be opened because of a problem" and the report tells me: Termination Reason: DYLD, [0x1] Library missing Has anyone successfully ran Armory on their mac? Is there some trivial mistake that I am making? Thanks for any and all help.

About a year ago I sent bitcoin from a Bitcoin purchasing website to my Armory wallet. The problem is that I didn't receive this money and my balance still said 0. A few days later I found out I had to download the entire blockchain, so I did. After waiting a few days for it to finish downloading the balance remained 0. What am I doing wrong and how can I solve this problem? Thanks. (I'm not very experienced when it comes to bitcoin)
Disk Digger Pro Apk || DiskDigger Importance || Recover Lost Files
In the Present scenario, Technology is growing too fast and we all are experiencing that our smartphone, PC, and Laptops carrying various files with the help of SD cards and internal memory. We will think that our files are in very secure places but if any file deleted unexpectedly then what you will do?. Don't worry, I already told you that tech is growing as fast as it can. Here I'm going to discuss the bestdata recovery services aka (DiskDigger) which are a perfect example of it. Let's go down to get more details of DiskDigger(Deep file recovery from any drive). DiskDigger is a tool which can recover deleted files like photos, documents, music, video and much more. DiskDigger Features: DiskDigger can recover lost files from most types of media that your computer can read: hard disks, USB flash drives, memory cards, CDs, DVDs, and floppy disks. (Note: Make sure that you have to connect your device with a USB port to recover lost data from Android and IOS devices ). And one more important thing is you have to download the diskdigger app on your android phone to recover lost files. Suppose if your Android device uses a microSD card for saving the data, please remove the card and connect it directly to your PC using a card reader, so that you can scan it directly using DiskDigger for Windows.) DiskDigger has two processes which you have to choose every time while scanning a disk. These methods are named as “dig deep” and “dig deeper“. Dig Deep:
Undelete files from FAT (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32), NTFS, and exFAT partitions.
Recover any type of file.
Filter recoverable files by name and size.
Sort recoverable files by name, size, date, and directory.
Scan (carve) entire disk for traces of specific file types.
View recoverable files as a list, or as thumbnail previews.
Thumbnails will show previews of image files, album art from MP3 and WMA files, and icons from executable files!
Selecting a recoverable file brings up a full preview of the file (insofar as possible). For image files, it will show the image (with pan and zoom). For document files, it will show a text-only preview of the document. For certain audio files, it will allow you to play back the sound.
Previews of JPG and TIFF files will show EXIF information (camera model, date taken, sensor settings, etc.).
Previews of MP3 files will show ID3 information (artist, album, genre, etc.).
Previews of ZIP files will show a list of files contained in the archive.
Able to scan virtual disk image files:
E01 and EWF files (Expert Witness Format)
VMDK files (VMware disk image)
VHD files (Microsoft Virtual Hard Disk)
VDI files (VirtualBox disk image)
Direct binary disk images (acquired with dd or similar tools)
When digging deeper, ability to start scanning from a specific location on the disk.
When previewing files, the program optionally shows the first 4K bytes of the file as a hex dump.
Need urgent help! Sent bitcoins to armory without understanding it.
So basically I made my first localbitcoins transaction today and I was trying to send the bitcoins to my electrum wallet however it wouldn't recognize my adress. I read a post which said to use a different wallet and so I downloaded armory. When it started up it said it could only boot in offline mode but I stupidly ignored this and sent bitcoins to my armory adress anyway. Now I have no clue how to get the bitcoins off there as I cannot get it out of offline mode. ive learnt I need this 'bitcoin core' thing however it seems that will take like three days to install or something stupid? Can anyone please help!!!
For a hard fork in Bitcoin to succeed, there needs to be near unanimous support from the entire Bitcoin ecosystem, which generally includes the following constituent groups: node operators, users, core developers, wallets, exchanges, and miners. Right now it's very clear that there is a large contingent of users, developers, wallets, and exchanges that have not signed on to this hardfork, so unanimous support is lacking.
Even minor changes in Bitcoin (let alone critical consensus changes) have taken generally many months or years of review and testing by the best experts to ensure the code is safe and bug-free. The timeline for Segwit2X does not allow for the kind of testing and review needed.
The hard fork doesn't address the many concerns over the years that have been brought up about the negative impact of increased load, cost externalities, miner and node centralization, and potential consensus failures
The timeline for the Segwit2X hardfork is such that there is no way for all the major groups to upgrade in time. As Greg Maxwell said:
"Its time-frame is extremely absurd. Actually, absurd doesn't do it justice which is why between that and number #1 several engineers have been just responding "LOL" to the proposal. They don't set any time for design review and analysis, they don't set any time for writing a specification (they don't have one and don't appear to intend to have one), they set aside two weeks for testing-- which is less time than even minor releases of Bitcoin get (and need!) even when they were comprised of small fixes which had mostly existed for months already. They don't allot any time for alternative implementations to implement it (which is especially bad because they can provide useful design feedback). They don't set aside time for meaningful deployment by users (some of whom may have their own lengthy patching and qualification process). They don't seem to have any concern about how forced upgrades erode decentralization and privileged hosted wallets/apis/pools over running your own infrastructure. Basically every stage of the consensus rule change pipeline should take (and always has taken) more time they allotted for everything. BU+Classic BIP109 ran on testnet for months before their interoperability failure was revealed and they forked apart from each other and abandon BIP109."
Now, let's assume for a moment that 80% of the hash power runs this fork as well as some of the economic ecosystem that signed the New York agreement like Abra, Bitpay, Coinbase, Blockchain, Purse, Shapeshift, Xapo, etc. What would happen? First, a large number of users and other parts of the ecosystem might not support it. There are many economic parties that were not part of the agreement, such as wallets like Trezor, MyCellium, Armory, Bitcoin Wallet (Android), Green Address, Breadwallet, Electrum, etc. There were a lot of exchanges that weren't part of the agreement, like Kraken, Poloniex, Bitstamp, Gemini, Bithumb, Bitfinex. What if several of those mentioned major economic players decide not to support Segwit2X and don't run the Segwit2X/btc1/NY client? I believe what would happen in that scenario is the following:
Bitcoin will permanently hard fork into two chains (note, this is not the oft-discussed chain split that could happen with BIP-148). If the companies switching to the new chain insist on trying to call it "Bitcoin" instead of something else like "Bitcoin2X" then it would probably cause massive confusion in the ecosystem because everyone else still on the original chain would still call that chain "Bitcoin".
Since the vast majority of core developers don't support this proposal, I believe after some possible period of confusion, eventually everyone would converge back to calling the original chain Bitcoin since it's the chain that is supported by the Bitcoin Core "reference client" that is trusted by the majority of users today. The companies that signed the New York agreement would probably be forced to abandon trying to calling the new chain "Bitcoin" due to the confusion that would cause. They would have to call the new chain something else like "Bitcoin2X".
If there were two chains, many of the exchanges that were not party to the New York agreement, such as Kraken, Poloniex, Bitstamp, Gemini, Bithumb, Bitfinex, etc. just to name a few would probably list both coins at the least, or possibly just the original chain only. That would also put pressure on the exchanges that signed the New York agreement to still provide users access to their coins on the original chain if there was a market for the original chain coins because to do otherwise could be seen by the users as a loss of economic value that they should be entitled to. After the Ethereum hard fork, a few hosted wallet companies tried to ignore the fact that their users were entitled to coins from the original chain, but were eventually forced to concede and give their users access to the coins on the original chain.
Finally, I am speculating here, but I believe with both coins listed on various exchanges, users would by a large majority choose to buy the original coin supported by the Bitcoin Core client, NOT the coin supported by the Segwit2X/btc1/NY client. Further, they would probably sell the Segwit2X/btc1/NY coins for core coins, forcing their price of Segwit2X/btc1/NY coins down significantly. If the price of the original coin is higher and the Segwit2X/btc1/NY coin is lower, there would then be an enormous incentive for miners to abandon the new Segwit2X/btc1/NY fork and return to mining the original fork. Even if the 80% of the mining hashpower that signed the New York agreement agreed to mine on the new chain, how long would they keep that up when they see they could make more money by switching back to the original Bitcoin chain being supported by higher prices and buy orders? I posit that so long as the users financially support the original chain supported by Bitcoin Core, the vast majority of miners will act in their own self interest and abandon the new Segwit2X/btc1/NY chain because it won't be as economically feasible to mine. Eventually, given that most developers won't support the Segwit2X/btc1/NY client, the coin will lose interest and possibly die off or remain a minor altcoin.
An important point to keep in mind is that nearly every core developer has at one point in time supported the idea of a hard fork and even larger blocks. But what they haven't supported is doing it without a high degree of consensus on forking safely, without the best research, lots of testing, and a very long time horizon. If we truly want to hard fork Bitcoin, we need to do it wisely, following the very challenging but necessary process for making such critical consensus changes. And it needs to be done with an open community process, not with a New York style agreement that leaves out major parts of the ecosystem. Bitcoin core is not the enemy of hardforks, or even block size increases. But there has to be very good justification for making these changes, a high degree of consensus and buy-in from the whole ecosystem, lots of research, good code, lots of testing, and a compelling need. It's a high bar, but not impossible. While there exists methods of getting more scale with safer methods (Schnorr signatures, bi-directional payment channels, transaction cut-through, extension blocks, lightning, flex caps, drivechains, etc.) hard forks seem less compelling for the moment.
