Bitcoins Mining - so geht's - CHIP

New to Bitcoin? Confused? Need help? You've come to the right place.

Bitcoin is an internet based decentralised currency. Similarly to Bittorrent, but Bitcoin uses a public ledger called the blockchain to record who has sent and received money. It's very new, and for many very confusing. BitcoinHelp aims to rectify this. Whether it be explaining how it works, how to use it, how to buy Bitcoins, how to integrate Bitcoins into your business. Sharing your successes as well as failures in order to help others is also gladly received. Ask away!

I am holding my BCH in the Bitcoin ABC Wallet, bitcoin-qt. What is the simplest way to split off the BCHSV?

Basically, I want to keep the BCH in the ABC wallet and be able to send the BCHSV to an exchange to sell it (once deposits are opened) while it still has a value.

Trying to salvage some coins from 2013. Core (bitcoin-qt.exe v0.8.1-beta on Windows 8.1) is taking weeks to DL the blockchain as expected but keeps crashing now. Can I upgrade to a newer version without losing what I've gotten already (about 75% complete)?

Currently there are 134305 blocks remaining. When I start it up it works pretty smoothly for a while but then slows down. I leave it running while I'm gone but the last several days when I've come back it has crashed and gives me an I/O error, and I have to hit OK then start it back up. It does appear to be further along when I start it back up but not by a whole lot. So this has really slowed my progress. It's reindexed about 75% though, and so I don't want to start over from the beginning.
The drive it is on has ~400gb of free space so that's not the issue. I have 8gb of memory, and the task manager says bitcoin is taking up about 500mb, but it's using 60-85% of my cpu at a time.
If I download a newer version of core, I can just copy/paste the old wallet.dat file, right? But wouldn't it have to start downloading the entire blockchain again from the beginning? If so, is there any quicker method?
While typing this, it crashed twice. It only runs for about 10 minutes.
The version I have doesn't have any settings I can change. I read that there's a db size limit you can change in later versions that could help. This one does have a "debug window" with a command line console but I don't really know what to do with it. Here is a list of available commands:

What is your paranoia level working with an online bitcoin qt wallet.dat file?

I have a reset Windows 8.1 installation with only bitcoin qt installed.
I use my normal hard drive for online banking yet don't trust it with bitcoin.

I just finished syncing the blockchain using Bitcoin Core-QT. Is my PC now a node? or what else is needed?

What is with the bitcoin qt wallet!?

I have been downloading the blockchain for 3 straight days, it is using all of my bandwith and some blocks are taking hours to download. I'm still 52 weeks behind and I just got message that the database is corrupt and the wallet just crashes when I try to open it now. Do I need to reinstall and start over? How is this going to work as the file gets bigger and bigger over time. Please advise. edit: Wow, thanks for all the responses. I will try electrum until I have a better handle on all this.

Was using bitcoin-qt on OSX, blockchain got corrupted and now it is impossibly big to re-download, what thin clients can I import my wallet.dat into?? OSX 10.7.5. I already tried electrum and looks like I'd have to build it from github, can't figure it out. please help.

Send help! is there a safe way I could download a torrent of the blockchain? i tried to reindex the blockchain (after my harddrive got unplugged while bitcoin-qt was running) and it looks like it would literally take a week of spinning my poor laptop fan balls out.
edit: wallet.dat is encrypted and safely backed up.

What the f*ck is up with bitcoin-qt 0.9.3.0???

Fourth time in a week my qt client running on Linux has had to reindex the entire blockchain starting five years ago! Is this some stupid hoax or just a friendly reminder to never download betas?
I don't want this turning into some Linux project where 100 people are working on 99 ways to reinvent the wheel without talking to one another before giving up and starting over next week.
Just fucking don't touch it and leave it the F*cK alone!!

What is the compulsory transaction fee for Bitcoin QT if I want to send one bitcoin to another address?

My dad has just bought two bitcoins from bittylicious and wants to send one to me. There is a setting in the bitcoin qt client which allows you to set the default fee payment to zero. However, after looking online it is clear that bitcoin qt completely ignores that setting in certain circumstances (such as newly minted coins) and charges a fee anyway.
I have a couple of questions. What is the minimum fee that bitcoin qt will apply if it feels like it, will I be notified or the charge before or after the bitcoin is sent and why have the devs bothered adding an optional transaction setting if bitcoin qt can completely ignore the setting when a payment is made?
Seems like bullshit to me and having to explain all this to my Dad is hardly easy.
The version he is using is 0.8.6 I think.

What is advantageous in downloading whole blockchain on the hard drive as in Bitcoin QT, and why does clients like Electrum get away without it?

It seems cumbersome downloading few gigs of data just to make several transactions, but I recon it has its reasons. Isn't its potentially harmful to the network if more people used Electrum? It seems kind of like leeching in the Torrent network.
