As most people here probably know, Cryptopia is delisting/delisted Nubits (USNBT) so I decided to withdraw to a wallet. One of the wallets that can be used is NuDroid, so I downloaded it for my Android smartphone.
When I opened the NuDroid wallet app, I looked around and went into the Address Book. “Your address” was empty but there was an address in “Sending addresses” (I have attached the screenshot). I thought that was the address to send my Nubits (USNBT) from Cryptopia so I made the withdrawal to that address. However, one day and then two days and now a few days have passed but I don’t see the funds in my NuDroid wallet. It appears that I could have sent my Nubits (USNBT) to the wrong address.
If the address is indeed wrong, where has my Nubits (USNBT) gone to now? Is there any way to recover them?
Sending addresses are just that, unless you have sent funds to yourself.
You must have created that address from somewhere though. Did you copy it from your PC Nubits wallet or is it an exchange address? If it is someone else’s address you might try to ask it back if you know that person/organisation.
That is good. NuDroid generates one starting address. That is actually the address in your control. You just need to get the App to sync with the blockchain now. Have you been able to look into the settings where it is at. It may take a few days to sync from scratch as work to speed this up was unfortunately abandoned.
She means that you have to keep NuDroid running on your Android device until it has downloaded all blocks in the blockchain which will eventually tell NuDroid that your address contains the funds it was sent.
If you go into Network Monitor in NuDroid, the bold number under Blocks in the following screenshot should be close to what you see in NuBits Block Explorer under Height. At the time of writing it was 1604237.
There is clearly a problem connecting to peers. I’m seeing the same after I restarted my client. The developer have abandoned the application and I’m trying to get someone else to work on it. In the mean time I’m open to suggestion on what to do about this, have tried everything but ran out of options. BTW your NBT are not lost yet, we just need to get the wallet to sync again.
Try this as it worked for me and got NuDroid Syncing again
Under the Three Dot Menu on the main page select Settings > Settings > Trusted Peer
In the box that pops up type daemon.nu.crypto-daio.co.uk
(That is a public Nu Daemon that I’m running that has ~60 Connections)
Tick the box to Skip Regular Peer Discovery
Wait for 30 seconds or so and NuDroid will begin syncing the blockchain. It’s much faster than syncing the desktop client but could still take a while
The transaction that sent your NuBits to the address shown in the original post was in block 1577888. The funds are still at that address so there’s still hope of getting them back (assuming you own the address shown)
Edit: The NuDroid Wallet is still functional, it just has hard-coded addresses in it which it uses to find nodes to scan for blockchain information. It seems that those nodes no longer exist so in it’s default state NuDroid cannot download the information it needs. It is possible to override that behaviour though, as shown above. There is some work to be done to update the hardcoded node addresses I agree but the wallet is still functional.
I’ve been convinced NuDroid is worth continuing development of. As I understood it, there’s still funding available, just no longer a primary developer.
@Cybnate: Do you want to create a thread about what needs to be done with NuDroid regarding development? We can advertise for developers via Recruitee and Twitter. We should also post instructions for using the current version on the website. Is what @woolly_sammoth described all that’s needed?
In the meantime I hope you can take over its ownership in the Android app store.
