Project purpose
Crown Support Team fills the need for help that is requested on a regular basis by
Assisting community members
Supporting the Dev Team

I (edwardmorra) will not request funds this month for my personal time, I feel it best to let it up to the community to donate what they think my work is worth. I choose to do so as the superblock is under quite a load as it is and I think infrastructure cost should come first.
My CRW address is: 19SDFgjumZyrRCtpzPdWeUMMs4oJ9w7D13

The Crown project needs several IT services to run. This includes Gitlab for code development, website hosting so new users can find the project and other bitcoin-fork  specific services.
This proposal is to cover the costs of the old subscriptions that are currently running. Besides that we try to cover as much of the costs community member pjcltd has by making services of his hosting company available.


The ambition of this proposal is to have crown infrastructure costs covered. This proposal’s project is to streamline system administration of the past 4 years into 1 as cost effective operation as possible so any bear market can be survived.

Proposal timetable and turning point(s)

As of right now there are 35+ servers running. Some of these are running at a too high cost.
12th of January is intended to be the moment where as much as possible of the infrastructure is on the hosting environment of pjcltd.
The migration/new setup of the infrastructure is time intensive and comes with hurdles like access details being spread wide.
Next superblock the intent is to not have to exchange CRW into fiat as pjcltd accepts crown as payment.
Acceptance criteria

This proposal can be called a success when migration and cost cutting doesn’t disturb the network infrastructure. For now it is most important the services keep running.


The migration methods used have so far not impacted the general operation of the Crown Project, once a server is copied it can be tweaked/setup in a sandbox-like environment. This means there is almost no risk involved with the cost-reduction part of this proposal.
The cost coverage part has 1 significant risk: Price decrease.
To try and hold of that risk the requested crown will be turned into FIAT asap. Thereby knowing how much of the cost is covered, so I (edwardmorra) can find other ways to cover the costs. Besides that pjcltd has agreed to help out with the cost see below.

Funding requirements

See attachment for cost breakdown
*pjcltd agreed that the 2600 crown will be used as buffer in case a price decrease happens. Should a price decrease happen the next superblock will have to cover the reduced amount of CRW.
Total CRW: 6815.6
 Costs cut so far.
69 Dollars from digital Ocean
Hetzner cost reduced as nextcloud will soon be migrated.

Next proposal will contain an update about the cost situation, besides that @edwardmorra can be pinged in discord and will stay in contact with the contributors.

Try rebooting the server

shutting them down and destroying the vps servers will work, when you can/want to set them up again just edit the IP's by rightclicking the respective systemnode in the wallet. From there you can press edit.
Once edited do the setup of the systemnodes like in the guide from step 6 forward.

Giving a little background information: I am setting up this webshop, a lot of personal funds and 2 contributors have spent CRW and BTC to make this happen. The partner of choice is Blockchain Denim. They are ready for production.

Hosting on one of the crown servers does not seem necessary for me, I can do it myself as well. It keeps the personal liability which I as an individual will have more under control.

I think the synced crown wallet giving a discount that is a little bit more then the fee Coinpayments asks is a good idea.

I just installed my first Systemnode!  :)

I used and got myself a VPS for $1/month.

Make sure your server is up to date. Login to your server using PuTTY and run the following command:
sudo apt-get upgrade

Then follow the above instructions and you'll be up and running in no time.

I wanted to register an account also on Aruba Cloud but they wanted my ID card number for security reasons.. is it something to trust? because the 1 dollar VPS price is just to awesome....

Thanks !!
Hey I haven't done the ID card thing but I do use their service.... once you are ready to set up make sure to not use the Legacy, OLD guide ;)

Systemnodes / Re: Systemnode keeps going offline
« on: September 06, 2018, 06:40:53 am »
Hello. I am having the same problem. I just discovered my node had been offline for over a month, and realized I needed to update wallet.

When I enter my wallet now (it is  v0.12.5.1) my node says missing, and I successfully restart it.

Next time I come to check it, it is offline again.

When I use crown-cli getinfo, I get this info:

"version" : 120401,
    "protocolversion" : 70052,
    "walletversion" : 61000,
    "balance" : 0.00000000,
    "blocks" : 1987739,

crown-cli systemnode status says Systemnode successfully started

Can you please help with this issue?

your local wallet is on the right version but vps, so the systemnode is wrong...

I've had issues with the previous pack getting it into vector programs (for laser engraving for example)...

Could you have that as a criteria for the aplicable things (a picture with a person turned to vector is in my opinion a waste of time  ;D )

Heya, what does it show in C:\users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Crown ??

the error is nothing to worry about, the wallet is loading so should be OK after a little while (then it still has to get to current block which you see where it is at with crown-cli getinfo aswell... once it is at the current block you can start it from you local wallet and all should be A Ok... Check if it is at that point with crown-cli systemnode status)
