UPDATE FROM DOGECOIN NEWS HUB: Dogecoin Wallet Stuck Syncing, How Do I Fix Dogecoin Wallet

With the recent increase in Dogecoin price. I wanted to see how my wallet was doing. It has been over 2 years since it has been synced to the network. The Dogecoin wallet was not syncing no matter what I tried. After lots of reading in the Dogecoin subreddit, I finally found a solution that worked.

Some of the error messages I ran across while trying to get my dogecoin wallet working again.

  • no block source available
  • ERROR: AcceptToMemoryPool: non-final
  • peer=4 using obsolete version 70002; disconnecting

I was getting stuck on a certain block number. I would let in run for 24hrs and it would do nothing. I tried to fix this issue attacking it from all angles.

Steps I used to fix the issue;

  1. Update your wallet to the latest version. As of this writing, it is 1.10
  2. Download the latest Dogecoin bootstrap file. This can take an hour to download.
  3. Go to C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\DogeCoin\ and back up the wallet.dat file and blocks and chainstate folders. Just to be safe.
  4. In C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\DogeCoin\ and delete the blocks and chainstate folders
  5. Follow these instructions on the Bootstrap for Dogecoin website
  6. Start the Dogecoin Wallet… and wait… and wait.

    The Dogecoin app utterly sucks and performance is abysmal. I’ve had the app installed for over a week and it’s been stuck in “synchronizing with network, 21 months behind” and it will NOT update. Fresh install and the fckn app won’t even update the data it’s designed to process. Doge coders are amateurs.
