A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.
I tried asking this in the bitcoincore sub yesterday, but it only has a handful of members and got no answers, so i now try here. When bitcoin-qt is first started, it asks for the location of datadir. If it is set to a custom location, it remembers it on subsequent launches. Where is this location stored, as no bitcoin.conf is generated in the default location, and i have not seen any other documentation to specify datadir except command line option and bitcoin.conf file?
Where does the Bitcoin-QT options dialog store options
When running Bitcoin-QT, there is an options dialog you can get to in the GUI under Settings. I've played with some of these settings and they don't store where I would expect. I've run some tests, on Windows 10, and it they are not housed in the bitcoin.conf file. What's more the settings persist if you change named conf files. Is it housed in the registry or some other file on the filesystem?

''' Version 0.20 gets a clean bill of health from this specific Mac OSX AV software. Surely it also “opens ports on your computer...” as well. I’m referring to the antivirus software doing a static analysis on the Bitcoin-QT executable image. Depending on the versions they all have a variation of OSX malware agent-nnnnn. I don’t know what that is but I’m hoping it’s a false positive. ''' Context Link Go1dfish undelete link unreddit undelete link Author: NotNiSza
past week installed the new plugin that allow me to connect my electrum wallet to bitcoin-core, i use a hardware wallet and worked like a charm. Then today was updating the node and used bitcoin-qt instead of bitcoind and when was waiting suddendly i see some text in the gui where it says "recent transactions", and a lot of transactions where there. Then was like WTF happened here, someone stole my btc?, or installed a compromised version of electrum(i use archlinux and install from the repos). Why some transactions where there, i neved imported my wallet to bitcoin-gui. Inmediately deleted the wallet.dat and did the same in electrum, but my question is: Was something imported into bitcoin-qt?, all my history was redeable from the gui, i never imported into bitcoin-qt, and as far i know the seed never leave the hardware wallet. This is normal?, at least all my funds are still there but im really worried. PS: everything happened with my hardwallet unplugged. TL:DR: Connected my cold wallet to electrum(connected to bitcoind) past week, never to bitcoin-qt, today opened bitcoin-qt and all my history of transactions from my cold wallet(unplugged) was there(bitcoin-qt), is this normal?.
Connecting bitcoin-qt to bitcoind on local network
Hello, I have a bitcoin node running on a headless box (bitcoind) and I would like to connect to it using bitcoin-qt on my desktop. I'm getting a little confused with the process.... does bitcoin-qt need to connect to bitcoind using RPC? Do I store my wallet file on the bitcoind box, or bitcoin-qt box? The bitcoin node is already setup to work with an electrum server, so I already have rpcbind=0.0.0.0, rpcallowip=$ELECTRUX_IP, and rpcuserpcpassword set. I tried adding my desktop IP to rpcallowip, and setting the appropriate username/password in bitcoin-qt's bitcoin.conf, but no luck. I can see in debug.log for bitcoin-qt that the connection is rejected. The node runs over TOR and I have onlynet=onion set in bitcoind's bitcoin.conf, but that doesn't seem to stop electrumx connecting via RPC over clearnet, so this shouldn't be an issue right? Am I missing something here? Help would be much appreciated!
