RE: Severe unexpected Coin loss
@Paulpoule we talked on Telegram and your friend helped you fix this, which was an artifact of operating an old version wallet after the hard fork on October 17th. In that case, a staking wallet can make some stakes onto a split chain, which aren't visible when you update the wallet and sync on Mainnet.
The fix, which you did, is to reload the blockchain and clean up the wallet.dat file to remove the bad transactions. One way to do this is using the "zapwalletxes=2" command on startup, or you can also import your private key into a brand new wallet.dat file. Either way, you rescan the blockchain to pick up the "official" transactions for your wallet, and restore the correct balance.

Development Updates - Qtum Core
Qtum core updates normally consist of Qtum Improvement Proposals. These QIPs are generated by both our developers and the community and in some cases requests from enterprise users. Our developers evaluate the impact of each QIP and work on high priority QIPs. All bug fixes and feature enhancements that have been issued to the core project will be listed here.
China Regulatory Update from Qtum Foundation
The Qtum Foundation works closely to follow global cryptocurrency regulations and policies to operate in a compliant manner, including those most recently announced in China. On Sep. 4, 2017, Chinese regulatory departments announced regulations about initial coin offerings and trading, banning those activities in China. More recently, on November 14, 2019, regulatory departments in Shanghai announced an investigation to close cryptocurrency fundraising and trading platforms.
This announcement emphasized the restriction on agencies providing services for oversees ICO projects and exchanges. Beijing and Shenzhen joined the campaign in the following days. Earlier this year, the Cyberspace Administration of China started two batches of blockchain information service registrations, and 506 enterprises completed the registration recording process, including the Qtum Foundation.
Below we provide a translation of recent regulatory announcements and look forward to a time when these regulations will provide a structured and safe environment for the development of blockchain technology.

RE: Configuration File error > Node Program
Hello Molurus, you can edit the configuration file "qtum.conf" directly in your Qtum data directory, which is %appdata%/qtum on Windows (press Windows Key - R and enter %appdata%/qtum). You can use Notepad to create a text file in that directory, then rename that text file as "qtum.conf". Hope that helps.
RE: Good luck with the project!
@benitamxmx welcome and thanks for joining. QTUM coins can only be traded on exchanges. There is a long list of choices on coinmarketcap https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/qtum/markets/
RE: Lost Funds
Hello Qtumthai, a few things to suggest.
QRC20 tokens are tied to a specific Qtum address. Unless you restore that Qtum address in a wallet, you won't see any balance (QTUM or QRC20 tokens). When entering seed words to restore a wallet, make sure you are using lower case letters (NEVER CAPITAL LETTERS) and make sure there is only a single blank space between the words and no trailing blank space after the last seed word.
You can also try restoring your mobile wallet on the Qtum Web wallet at https://qtumwallet.org/. Use the option "Restore from Mobile Wallet".
Otherwise, we don't support the Qbao wallet and as for whether Qbao had a swap or something, check on their Telegram at https://t.me/QbaofoundationEn
RE: Core Wallet not syncing
@me On the Mac, use Cmd - Shift - . (dot) to see hidden files in Finder. Or you can use the EasyFind application set to show Invisible Files & Folders. The easiest way to delete the local blockchain is by using File - Restore Wallet - delete blockchain data - and then restarting (on Qtum-Qt).
