  How to change Mac Address in Orange Pis
Posted by: noquedanmasnick - 4 hours ago - Forum: Skywire - No Replies


so I have prepared my nodes (Orange Pi Win Plus) to find out that their Mac Addresses are the same, meaning I can only run a manager and a node individually even if they are connected to the same router. 

There are ways to change the Mac Address on Linux, but none seems permanent, or works properly after a boot up. Has anybody encounter this issue and know how to solve it? Also, would my scenario be a valid whitelisting candidate (several managers+nodes connected to the same router?).

  What you need to do on the 21st-22nd!
Posted by: I Am You - 05-20-2018, 11:14 PM - Forum: Skywire - Replies (4)

Its Time!!

There will be a software update for the Skywire software. You will need this update to participate in the white list. If your using Orange Pi's and using the official images you will have to reflash your SD cards. You will find the images at the bottom of the page here https://github.com/skycoin/skywire/blob/.../README.md They will be updated some time on the 22nd.

The official Images for the Orange Pi Primes are up and running!

For everyone else running DIY's you will have to SSH into your miners and do these commands:

cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/skycoin/skywire
git reset --hard
git clean -f -d
git pull origin master
cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/skycoin/skywire/cmd
go install -v ./...

The new Discovery address is :

To start connecting to your newly updated device you should be able to start it with

cd $GOPATH/bin
nohup ./manager -web-dir ${GOPATH}/src/github.com/skycoin/skywire/static/skywire-manager > /dev/null 2>&1 &sleep 3

nohup ./node -connect-manager -manager-address ManagersIPAddress:5998 -manager-web ManagersIPAddress:8000 -discovery-address discovery.skycoin.net:5999-034b1cd4ebad163e457fb805b3ba43779958bba49f2c5e1e8b062482904bacdb68  -address :5000 -web-port :6001 > /dev/null 2>&1 &cd /

For Example:
./node -connect-manager -manager-address -manager-web -discovery-address discovery.skycoin.net:5999-034b1cd4ebad163e457fb805b3ba43779958bba49f2c5e1e8b062482904bacdb68  -address :5000 -web-port :6001 > /dev/null 2>&1 &cd /

Once your node is up to date, double check your public keys and you can begin your whitelisting process: https://www.skycoin.net/whitelist/

This processes is available from Now untill the 31st of May 2018 and the first batch of whitelisted public keys will be released on the 1st of June 2018.

Best of luck and may your whitelisting and application go smoothly.

  discovery-address settings for R PI 3 B+

Hey guys

I have used both


but neither of them get rid of the red exclamation mark under settings in the Monitor, so I can't connect to nodes.
I've opened up all ports I've seen in the config to my #1 ( to no avail. All 8 display online but the red check mar remains.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance

  Skycoin Collectable coins, Webshop is open!
Posted by: JulesVg - 05-18-2018, 09:44 PM - Forum: Miscellaneous - No Replies

Message to all Skyfleet members, 

A month ago the four of us came up with the idea of making physical collectable coins depicting our favourite cryptocurrency project: Skycoin. 
We reached out to the developers and they were as excited as us! 
Thus with their support, we launched a Kickstarter campaign to mint Physical Skycoin Collectable Coins. 

The community welcomed us with open arms and with their support we were able to reach our funding goal in just a few days. The Kickstarter campaign has since been funded successfully by 104 backers who even unlocked several stretch goals!
We are now patiently waiting to receive your pledges from Kickstarter. This process normally takes up to two weeks and production will start when all pledges are wired. 

Since the Skycoin community is so large we were not able to reach the majority of people. As a result, we got a lot of requests on the last day to extend our Kickstarter campaign period. This was not possible however and thus we decided to launch a temporary webshop until all Kickstarter pledges are wired to us from Kickstarter.
The web shop can be found at this link: https://melloo.io/
As this webshop is an extension of our Kickstarter campaign we thought it was fair to our early pledges to keep the stretch goals running while the webshop is open. 
The closing date of the webshop is set at the 28th of May. 
The total pledged amount raised on Kickstarter and the money raised on the webshop will be added together and the full amount will be used to check which stretch goals are unlocked.

As of now the 7.5k and 10k stretch goals have been reached, unlocking the plastic coin capsule and luxurious satin coin pouch respectively. Below you will find the other stretch goals that can be unlocked over the course of two weeks, with the end date on the 28th of May.

Stretch Goals
€ 7,500 - UNLOCKED - All coins will be delivered in plastic flip cases preventing coins from becoming damaged by protecting it from outside contaminants while allowing the coin to be viewed through transparent plastic.
€ 10,000 - UNLOCKED - Each coin will have a Luxurious Coin Pouch consisting of a velvet outer layer, gold metal capped laces and a satin inner layer to store all your precious coins like a true Collector. 
€ 15,000 - Locked - All pledges will receive a Free Mystery Gift.
Sell 10 Obelisk or more - Locked - There will be a physical Skycoin coin embedded in the top of the obelisk. (instead of the laser engraved one)
€ 25,000 - Locked - silver ticket will be hidden in one of the coin pouches, giving each pledger a chance to win his or her own Fine Silver (99,9%) coin of 1 troy ounce (31,1 grams).
€ 60,000 - Locked - golden ticket will be hidden in one of the coin pouches, giving each pledger a chance to win his or her own 24 karat Gold (99,9%) coin of 1 troy ounce (31,1 grams).

All coins will be produced in one large batch and will never be minted again. The coins are limited edition and each collection will consist of only 20 coins for the Pure Gold (99.9%) collection, 100 coins for the Pure Silver (99.9%) collection, and 2500 coins for the Gold Plated 18K collection.

You can choose from a range of products:

  • 18k Gold plated collectable coin in different amounts
  • An 11 inches tall Crystal glass Obelisk. A tribute to the consensus algorithm
  • One Pure silver (99.9%) Skycoin collectable coin
  • One 24k Gold (99.9%) Skycoin collectable coin

Each coin will receive a unique randomly generated code that will be coupled to our database. If you would ever plan to resell or buy this coin, the unique code must be sold together with the coin.
To thank the Skycoin developers for their support, each of them will receive their own coin.

Best regards,
Jules - Louis - Thomas - Stephanie

  Skyminer Cost
Posted by: bikayi - 05-18-2018, 02:14 PM - Forum: Questions and Answers - Replies (1)

Would it be cost effective for me to build my own skyminer now that the testnet is live?

Or its better for me to wait for the release of the official plug & play skyminer once test-net is over? How much will the official skyminer cost after test-net?

  Skycoin Collectable coins
Posted by: JulesVg - 05-16-2018, 10:23 AM - Forum: Miscellaneous - No Replies

Hello everyone! 

Together with 3 friends we launched a successful Kickstarter project to make limited edition physical collectable Skycoin coins. You might have seen it appearing on some of Skycoin’s Twitter, Facebook, Telegram or Reddit in the last month. 

Because we still have massive interest from the community, we decided to open up a webshop after the Kickstarter project (https://melloo.io/). Via Coinbase Commerce we were able to receive crypto payments. The only downside is that we only have three options of Crypto payments, being BTC, ETH and LTC..

Skycoin is by far the best project out there, and our community consists of true Skycoin believers. 
It would be more than normal to have people pay in Skycoin as well. 
We are looking to implement a Skycoin button or payment system on our webshop, but we need your help to accomplish this. 
If anyone has any information on how to do this, please go to our Official Telegram channel (https://t.me/PhysicalSkycoins) so we can discuss options. 

It would be awesome to give Skycoin another use case by enabling direct payments. Please help us by spreading the word. We, the Skycoin community, can make this happen! 

Thank you in advance! 

Best regards,

Jules - Louis - Thomas - Stephanie
