hey guys,after vaxman sent me 3 coins to get started (thank you once again!!!) i managed to set the name -1 coin
and after i tried to set recipient on pool burstcoin.ro from the default pools.did it a couple of times but i kept getting an error there. -1 coin
i went on their page and set the reward recipient successfully -1 coin
so i guess 3 coins were sufficient to get me started
the miner started running lalala for 3 hours and i never got past the :
"new block xxxxxx basetarget xxxx netdiff xxxx th
"thread d:/ xxxxx
"hdd wake up
i installed the hdneversleep software and set it on 5 mins on the drive i have the plot to try and resolve this
in the end all i saw on my wallet was the -3 coins from the setup
so my questions are :
1 why i could not set up the reward recipient from the wallet (maybe its done already?) i see it as set on the miner window
2 do i need a coin every time i start mining on a pool?
3 why i don not get a green line confirmation ever? do i need to let it for a day or something to get any update?
i started with a 500gb plot to test this thing going up to 10TB if i get any slight result that all is working,meaning that all it would be left would be to upgrade my TB capacity to mine more,but i cant order a thousand dollar worth of HDD's without knowing all is set.
Thank you for the time to read this post and for your help in advance!!!
Merry Christmas !!!!
