Edit: I no longer hold Potcoin due to lack of developer interest in maintaining a quality coin. The nodes that I have run have now been shut down. See this for more help:  https://www.reddit.com/r/potcoin/comments/75xpmi/cant_access_wallet_because_wallets_not_syncing_at/

As it sits now, when you download the Potcoin Wallet it will not sync. This seems to be an issue with the Potcoin peers.dat file that is installed with the Wallet. To get around this you can either update the peers.dat file itself or use the console to manually add nodes.

I run three Potcoin Nodes and they will remain up 24/7/365. So I will walk you through adding my nodes to your Wallet via the console. This is on a Windows machine but it should work with any wallet console.

Open your Wallet and then go to Help > Debug window.

In the Debug window click the Console tab and then enter the following commands, one at a time pressing enter after each:

  • addnode 45.33.29.45 add
  • addnode 139.162.4.29 add
  • addnode 172.104.102.113 add

It will look like this before and after:

 

After a few minutes your Potcoin Wallet should begin syncing with the rest of the nodes. If you found this helpful, consider a donation!

I added a couple of extra steps to the original post here and it worked for me: Go to Settings > Options > Network and uncheck the box marked “connect through SOCKS proxy” and then close the wallet and restart it. Then go to Help > Debug Window > Console and add the nodes mentioned in the original post as well as these extra nodes too (all one at a time): addnode 5.255.66.44 add addnode 162.243.224.78 add addnode 23.243.49.154 add addnode 209.202.6.118 add Mine did not work with just the nodes in the original post, but worked after adding the… Read more »

Never mind, I got it to work by adding a couple of extra nodes i found somewhere else too.
Here, just in case anyone else needs them!

addnode 5.255.66.44 add
addnode 162.243.224.78 add
addnode 23.243.49.154 add
addnode 209.202.6.118 add

Thanks for the wallet information. I did add the three nodes as you suggested but I still don’t seem to connect to the block source. I even copied over the zip files to accelerate the synch process. Any other ideas? …..Are your 3 nodes still operating
