    Hello,

    Can you please be a little bit more specific? What do you mean by “wordpress module”?

    The CoinPayments IPN mechanism is not directly related to PayPal IPN. They perform similar function but other than that they are unrelated things.

    If I understand you correctly:

    1. You first set up the CoinPayments adapter. In the adapters list the status is “responding”.
    2. You attempted to display the frontend UI elements, either via shortcodes or via the widgets.
    3. You see an error in a message box when you try to view the UIs and the UIs are empty.

    Please have a look at the troubleshooting section in the manual, under “I do not see the UI elements in the frontend.”

    1. Check that you have added the shortcodes correctly or that you are displaying the widgets in the right widget area.
    2. Check that you are logged in.
    3. Check that you are logged in as a user with the right capabilities, including has_wallets. The needed capabilities for each UI element are listed in the Shortcodes section of this document.
    4. Check that at least one coin adapter is online. Go to Wallets -> Adapters and check the *status* column of each adapter.

    If the problem persists after you have checked the above, can you please post the error message that you get?

    Thanks

    I did check your site and couldn’t figure anything out just by looking at the frontend.

    I do understand that your site is a hidden service. It’s true I did not setup an onion site. The issue here is not how the browser connects to your site, but how your site connects to the other APIs. Just because your site exposes an onion service does not mean it itself uses tor to connect to the other APIs. Your block.io adapter connects to the block.io API over clearnet probably, not Tor. The block.io adapter does not know anything about proxies. Only the CoinPayments adapter connects to its API over tor. I have tested this on my end.

    Can you tell me when you go to Wallets -> CoinPayments -> Coin Options, do you see your coins listed?

    Hello,

    If you don’t need the internal transfer feature, you can disable the send_funds_to_user capability from the user roles that you do not want to see other users.

    I’m afraid I can’t reproduce the issue.

    I have tested the coin adapter over tor and the UIs work fine.

    (Also note that you have posted the domain of your site. You have deleted it in one image but left it shown in the other. Maybe get a new one? )

    I’ll investigate this and will let you know.

    Hello,

    This is a different problem altogether I think. I have tested the UI with the new changes and it is not broken on my end.

    There are a number of reasons why the UI would not show, so please first see the troubleshooting section in the manual under “I do not see the UI elements in the frontend.”:

    Also, can you check your javascript console for errors and the network tab for failed XHR requests?

    If so, let me know what you see.

    OK I’ve got it working, using your suggestion.

    I will release a patch soon to the coinpayments adapter. There will be an option to enable tor.

    Thanks very much

    My mistake, block.io is contactable over tor:

    $ curl --socks5-hostname localhost:9050 https://block.io/api/v2/get_balance/?api_key=foo
    {
      "status" : "fail",
      "data" : {
        "error_message" : "Invalid value for parameter API_KEY provided."
      }
    }

    You might be right about those curl attributes! Did it work for you?

    Hi,

    You have brought up a number of points, let me answer as many of them as I can:

    First, I do not know if you can use the block.io service over tor. At least the API URL doesn’t seem to be contactable from within tails. That would explain why it didn’t work for you.

    The CoinPayments adapter can possibly work with the curl parameters that you mentioned, I haven’t tested it though. If you have tested it, I would very much like to know what you found, otherwise I will try to make it work myself at some later time and release a patch if needed.

    The process to switch to another adapter is as follows (I will add it to the FAQ):

    1. Deactivate the first coin adapter
    2. Delete your deposit addresses. Simply do a
    DELETE FROM wp_wallets_adds WHERE symbol IN ('BTC','LTC','DOGE');
    in your SQL console. This will let new deposit addresses to be generated by the new adapter. If you do not do this your deposit addresses will be from the old adapter/wallet.
    3. Install and activate the new adapter.

    The CoinPayments adapter is well-tested over clearnet. Can you confirm that you can use it over clearnet? That would eliminate the possibility that you’re doing something else wrong. If it works over clearnet but not tor then we can work from there.

    Also, stepping back from the details, you are obviously interested in anonymity, so I believe you might be better off setting up your own wallet, rather than using a third-party service. I’m curious, why don’t you try to install your own Bitcoin wallet on a server? I normally recommend users against this, but you seem to be one of the edge cases who might be better off doing this.

    If you do not want to keep the entire blockchain online, you could use the built-in Bitcoin adapter with this wallet:

    https://github.com/prasos/bittiraha-walletd

    In any case, make sure to only have only one adapter enabled for each coin that you use. The plugin will warn you about this.

    Let me know how it goes.

    If you want to connect over tor, at the very least I imagine that the API endpoint should be an onion address, so that’s one reason why it doesn’t work. The PHP code that you sent me is already in there, but the adapter is not meant to connect to the tor API of CoinPayments.

    Unfortunately to test and debug this I will need to setup a tor site and this will take me some time because I’ve never done it before.

    In the meantime, you could try editing the line in wallets-cp.php that reads

    const API_ENDPOINT_URL = 'https://www.coinpayments.net/api.php';

    Make it point to their API endpoint at their onion address and see if it works. It’s worth a shot.

    User balances update automatically when a deposit is inserted into your DB and its status changes to done. This happens once a transaction reaches the required number of confirmations. If the deposit does not appear in your transactions table, even in unconfirmed state, then that means that it was not discovered by the cron mechanism for some reason. We will need to debug this.

    If you wish, you could enable and check your WordPress logs, and let me know if you see anything suspicious.

    My apologies I somehow missed your question while doing other stuff.

    I have not tested the site with tor. Did you edit the PHP code and change the API endpoint?

    I will try it out and let you know, in the meantime you could check your logs if you like.

    regards,
    Alex

    Hello,

    Please read the FAQ. It is not a good idea for me to tell you how to do this. If you are not comfortable installing applications on a Linux server then please use one of the web wallets, block.io or CoinPayments. It will save you a lot of pain in the long run. The reason is that you will need to administer the wallet yourself if you install it on a server you own. Also, you will need either a VPS or dedicated server. Shared hosting will not work.

    If on the other hand you are comfortable with linux and the command line, instructions for how to install bitcoin are here https://bitcoin.org/en/full-node#linux-instructions

    It does not matter which host you are using, just make sure you take note of the hardware and network bandwidth requirements which are quite high. https://bitcoin.org/en/full-node#minimum-requirements

    best regards,
    Alex

    Hello,

    I could send you the schema in SQL, but it is safer if you do the following:

    1. Delete the wp_wallets_revision option from the DB:

    DELETE FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = 'wallets_db_revision';

    Make sure to replace wp_ with whatever prefix your DB is using.

    2. After deleting the option, deactivate the plugin and reactivate it.

    I will make a note to make the uninstall script delete the DB revision so that in the future a simple deactivate/reactivate cycle will repair the schema without manual intervention. This will be rolled out in the next release.

    Let me know how it goes.

    regards,
    Alex
