@clon Thanks! If you are interested in exploring the Qtum Testnet, here is a user guide from Qtum GitHub https://github.com/qtumproject/documents/blob/master/en/Testnet-User-Guide.md and a blog that gives more information about Testnet in a question and answer format https://medium.com/@jb395official/testnet-and-qtum-mainnet-performance-january-1-8-e7af03a5d430

RE: My Wallet Refuses to Sync
@ny42, we talked on Telegram.
Using the "addnode" command is a way to get new wallets started talking to the Qtum network. The command that works is
addnode qtum5.dynu.net:3888 add
Once your wallet gets peer connections, it remembers them using the "peers.dat" file so your wallet will restart easily.
For blockchain syncing, you will need to sync the entire blockchain to see your correct wallet balance, especially for recent transactions.
Qtum on Raspberry Pi 4B
The new Raspberry Pi 4B is a highly capable single board computer. In a variety of benchmarks and Qtum wallet performance tests, the RPi performed well. You can get better performance using a fast SD card and overclocking. The RPi 4B is a low-cost way to run a Qtum node or experiment with this device. The bootstrap file helps blockchain syncing on slow network connections.
See the blog, including testing for download sync, rescanning, overclocking and the bootstrap.dat file.

@rlapao, Thanks for pointing this out.

RE: Change data folder location
Hey @thisisbbc, I think you can only set a custom data directory on the initial installation, not through the configuration file or after the wallet is installed.
During installation, the first popup option is to install the Qtum Core binaries (executable programs) in a custom location:
Later in the process with another popup you can pick a custom location for the Qtum data directory, here a new folder named "Data" in the "F:\Qtum" directory:
If you have already installet Qtum Core (carefully save your wallet.dat file if you have started using the wallet!), just uninstall, delete all the Qtum files, do a reinstallation and select the custom directory locations.
RE: [Please help!] I cannot restore my wallet from dat. file
@MJJ, as I responded on Twitter, please contact me on Telegram QtumOfficial for interactive troubleshooting at https://t.me/qtumofficial, ask for Jackson JB_365. Meanwhile, don't save any files or move files around on your PC.
