Try running primecoin with the “-rescan” flag and see what happens.

You could also back up your wallet.dat and delete prime coins blockchain, forcing it to re-download completely. (That’s the brute force method)

Try to start with Primecoin “-rescan” flag and see - (how?), Please tell me in detail. because nothing helps ((

What OS are you using?


I’m not on windows right now, so I’m trying to explain this by heart.

Create a short cut for your primecoin-qt.exe

Now if you right click on that short cut it look something like this

Target " X:\Programs\Primecoin\Primecoin-qt.exe"

you have to add -rescan in this line so the target field will look like this:

" X:\Programs\Primecoin\Primecoin-qt.exe" -rescan
