The CloakCoin developer has posted an interesting update today, during which he addresses the network stability issues over the past few days. A lot of problems and solutions were discussed, so let’s take a look!
Whenever the network hash of CloakCoin drops, users’ wallets go out of sync, and CloakCoin forks. In order to fix there, the next CloakCoin wallet will feature a DNS seeder which is not restricted to 2 seednodes.
This will also prevent the CloakCoin seednodes from being flooded, and thus the wallet syncing issues , as well as the spawning of multiple blockchain forks, will not occur anymore. No official ETA has been given on when the update will be released.
CloakTrade is being affected by some of the boost threads used in the Bitcoin core. These boost threads interfere with the qt stuff of which CloakTrade was built around. Some people have also reported application crashes.
A solution to this problem is to rewrite the entire affect code using cURL. As a result, compatibility will improve as well, which can only be beneficial to everyone using the CloakCoin client.
Speaking of compatibility, there were some issues when CloakCoin was released. In order to address this, two virtual machines will be set up, one for LInux and one for Windows. This way, CloakCoin developers can verify each other’s work and ensure better overall compatibility.
