Welcome to Quark Community

Quark is an open source software used mainly as a digital currency that employs multiple cryptographic algorithms, which unlike fiat/national currencies provides the platform for a decentralised monetary system.

Quark was launched in 2013 with the belief that the control of money should not be in the hands of the few, but in the hands of the many. This forum tries to build on that ideology by distributing Quarks in the hands of those that are active in the community. By posting quality articles and contributing to general discussions you will earn Quarks.

    You may have lost your quarks because they were validated by the wrong fork, if they were directly mined that's probably what happened since the 0.9 and 0.10 have separated blockchain.

    And Can I download v9 on an other computer and backup the wallet back (to transfer to my v10 wallet) ?

    The quarks that are on the v9 actually exists, but since most of the network accepted v10, i don't think they have much value. if you got them before the update, it should appear on the v10 wallet except if you deleted your wallet.dat. If you got them after the update, then they're only on the v9 blockchain and you won't be able to get them on the v10.

    But, Is it normal that the mining difficulty increased from v9 to v10 ?
    Before it was something like 8,5.....

    I notice a lot more pool mining lately. I haven't mined a block in a while. Its starting to look like pool mining is the way to.go now. Everyone can share the wealth. In the spirit of Quark

    Yes it is normal since there were less miners on the v9 fork.

    And.... with the price steadily going up, more people, even if they are not a "Quarker" will mine the coin, making it more difficult.

    To the Moon Quark!

    Hi Dodorama,
    Maybe this is my problem, too. I bought quarks back in 2013. Now I am trying to get them back into a wallet. The old wallet wouldn't sync so I downloaded the new 10.4.4 version to a different computer and synced it. To recover my coins I tried to copy/paste my old wallet.dat file to the file folder containing the new wallet, but get the error message: "Payment request cannot be read or processed. This can be caused by an invalid payment request file".
    Does this mean that my coins are on the wrong fork and I have lost them?
