“On first run it will ask to import or create new wallet. It will also ask when ever wallet.dat is not in the mintcoin directory.
I wanted to add a menu option to import at anytime but ran into some issue with the current wallet implementation.
With this build complete, I am starting to bring the wallet and DB closer to the latest bitcoin and peercoin code. This will make the sync dramatically quicker.
I’m also looking into the orphan situation the forum is discussing. No ideas there yet but looking a few other coin implementation it should come up in the research”

“I have been an avid fan of POW coins like BTC and Dash for years and read a lot of POS forum “debates” and finally want to get started. I found mint by donating to my favorite linux disrto – mint of course – and started to stake a few days ago. The people I have come across reading about Mintcoin are a bit more sane than a few other coins I’ve been researching.
I saw how easy it was for me to use Shapeshift to get started with Mintcoin. After reading the API I wondered if anyone working integrating it into the wallet software. I’m a C/Java based developer with a some experience making android tablet apps for small businesses in my area. I feel that the Mintcoin community is small and intimate so contributing here seems right for me. Another toying around in my mind was using bluetooth on the android client similar to airbitz using some of the open APIs they have. Mixing C and Java has been fun projects.
Just thoughts, I like the community’s vibe and would like to contribute to a better experience for all users. I actually just cloned the git and am going to get very intimate with bitcoinJ tonight.”
