The only things I have changed in this are my folder names. Thank you for your assistance.

Yes we know this.

You must reindex if you updated from 12.x to 13.x and you did that before the sporks were activated.

2019-03-03 19:47:10 [0%]...*** Found EvoDB inconsistency, you must reindex to continue

how do i 'reindex'?... in simple terms... please.

If you are using windows please go to c:\users\yourusername\appdata\roaming\dashcore

Remove those three folders: blocks, chainstate and evodb

Once removed start the dash-qt again and let sync.

Let us know if works.

thank you so much... it worked... and i didn't lose my dash! :~)

Happy to hear that!


I have had same problem after 0. 13.3.0 instaled version

I didi delete all 3 folders


now I got messages


"You must specify a masternodeblsprivkey in the configuration. Please see documentation for help"

i found the problem. Value in dash.conf "Maternode=1". Who has the same problem like me, means you have Dash Core for dummies so change the value to "Maternode=0"

*Masternode

The masternodes need to have now those:

masternode=1

masternodeprivkey=

masternodeblsprivkey=


If you have lack of at least two of those from the bottom the dashd neither will open.
