Spreadcoin Transition (DNS Seeds)
« on: March 12, 2015, 04:48:13 pm »
Another thing, now that Mr.Spread's website is down, we also don't have a dns seeder for our wallets anymore,
this makes synching take a little longer than usual.

https://github.com/spreadcoin/spreadcoin/blob/master/src/net.cpp#L1199

When we make the transition we will have to install atleast one (preferably more) dns seeds,
e.g.
dnsseed.spreadcoin.info
dnsseed.spreadcoin.us
etc

and then create new wallets for all systems.

See https://github.com/spreadcoin/spreadcoin-seeder for more info.

PS: We will also need to check current hardcoded seed nodes (not to be mistaken with DNS seeds), and adjust them accordingly:

i reconfigured my own seeder for this:
Just add a new domain:
dnsseeder.spreadcoin.us  IN    A   104.36.83.126

(this is the name for dns seeder, not the peers!!)
