Need some help for the beginning :)



  • Hello Guys 🙂

    im from Germany and im totaly new to "mining".
    I want to start with burst, because its looks not to complicated and you dont need soo expensive Hardware.
    I want to start a "Test Mining" with a 500GB hdd. If i like it i will maybe invest in a bigger rig 🙂
    I made me a Burst Wallet and receive and send some Burst. So i think its activated.
    Now is my plan to mine (plotting is also already done).
    I want to use the http://burstcoin.ml:8080 at the beginning.

    My miner.conf look like this:

    {
    "Mode" : "pool",
    "Server" : "http://burstcoin.ml",
    "Port" : 8080,

    "UpdaterAddr" : "http://burstcoin.ml",
    "UpdaterPort" : 8080,

    "InfoAddr" : "http://burstcoin.ml",
    "InfoPort" : 8080,

    "EnableProxy" : false,
    "ProxyPort" : 8126,

    "Paths":
    [
    "E:\Burst\plots"
    ],
    "CacheSize" : 40000,
    "ShowMsg" : false,
    "ShowUpdates" : false,

    "Debug" : true,
    "UseHDDWakeUp" : true,

    "SendBestOnly" : true,
    "TargetDeadline": 80000000,

    "UseFastRcv" : false,
    "SendInterval" : 100,
    "UpdateInterval" : 950,

    "UseLog" : false,
    "ShowWinner" : true,
    "UseBoost" : false,

    "WinSizeX" : 76,
    "WinSizeY" : 60
    }

    I hope its ok...
    Because i had to modify this manualy because the Burst Client didnt do anything to this file, even after i pressed "Start Mining" and typed in my pool adress.

    Yeah and the next Problem is that im missing some Burst to start to change reward system...
    So it would be very nice if somebody can spend me a few Burst for the beginning 🙂

    Thanks!

    Best Regards, Kaoala



  • I am new i have 8 TB to use on burst i installed linux for the first time i did everything according to the instructions and you do on linux or windows??

    5 sent



  • @iKnow0 Thanks!!
    @j4sk0 Im running on Windows and used the following tutorial:
    https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@cardboard/mining-burstcoin-hdd-is-all-you-need-tutorial-for-newbies

    Now im plotting my Drive again because i think windows restartet the pc for an update while plotting...
    The Change of the reward system looks good. I think that worked 🙂 But this needs to be done only once or? Only change it when i want to change the pool? Or every time i plottet a drive?

    Thanks?



  • It needs to be done everytime you decide to change pools.

    Good luck and mine some Burst!



  • I managed to start mining! Thanks guys!
    I made a screenshot of my miner

    Is everything ok? i think nothing really happening there because i have a very small plott file, or? If i have a few TB my changes are higher to find something.

    Have a nice day!

    @iKnow0 if i manage to mine a few burst, i will send you the 5 burst back



  • @Kaoala Looks like its working, well done. Forget paying back pay it forward, help others.


  • admin

    @Kaoala Pool.burst-team.us is not an appropriate pool given your plotsize. Switch to one of the others that accept longer deadlines, eg Falconcoin, Tros, Pingofd3ath



  • @haitch Yeah i know its not recommend for my size, but i had some trouble with the pool reward system so i followed a tutorial to test ist again and it worked.
    This is only for testing, not for a long period (because my setup now is not efficent).

    @iKnow0 Thanks man!



  • I changed my pool again. This time back to http://burstcoin.ml/
    Now it looks even better 🙂 Now i have to get some burst or im out of Burst again 😃

    And can someone explain what deadline means?
