I’m trying to transfer some GRIN from Poloniex to Grin++ wallet. The address section gives an address and then a partially completed url. If I click the url part nothing happens.
Then the Receive section shows that it wants a .tx file but Poloniex does not provide this. Poloniex gives the following when I try to add just the address, “Your GRIN address must be formatted as an HTTP or HTTPS URL”.
How do I get the URL from Grin++? I’ve tried right click but again nothing happens.
But there is no way to copy it because it has … in the middle and clicking it doesn’t do anything. Surely the … is missing characters which would represent the full address. Unless I’m supposed to put something in there.
You won’t find the address in a block explorer; Grin has no addresses. They are just wallet-to-wallet addresses, i.e. that’s how the wallets “find” each other so they can complete the transaction interactively. They are never in the chain itself.
Once Poloniex sends the transaction it should only take a couple of minutes really. Try to Restart Grin++ and then Resync if it still doesn’t appear.
If your balance is 0 after doing both, the problem is 100% with Poloniex.
I did a resync and restart but when it loaded back up it said Status: Waiting for Peers.
It wasn’t doing this prior to the resync.
I also created a firewall rule to open up port 3414 outgoing tcp+udp for Grin++ application but it didn’t seem to help.
