In need of coins to start up
Having read a bit, it seems I've got the same common problem that the Faucets in the client are either not working or empty. Please could someone spare me a few coins to get started?
Also, any recommendations for a pool? I'm in the UK if it makes any difference. Many thanks.
@bacus sent you a couple. Choosing a pool will depend on your capacity.
Many Thanks @vExact . Nothing showing in my wallet yet (Windows client v0.3.9.7), but its still 'Syncing Local Wallet' at 91.43% after about 18 hours. It did stall at 80% last night, so I killed the process and restarted which seemed to get it going again.
Regarding which pool to join, in answer to your question, I'm starting with 8TB which is plotting now (estimate another 2 days to completion). If all goes well, I'll increase after that.
@bacus the coins are already there :)
Yes, you need to wait for the wallet to get synced to see them. If you are having problems with downloading the DB you can always download the DB zip file
Ant then unzip it on
and let it sync after.
I mine on http://poolofd32th.club which is ok if you are 5TB+, max DL accepted is 14 days, meaning DL longer than that are not submitted to the pool.
@vExact Thanks for the info. I kind of guessed something was going wrong and so did the manual update. Had a slight issue with not being able to delete the corrupt db as it was locked by java, but managed to get it fixed. Everything is now synced up and showing the coins. Plotting should finish tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be up and mining soon and can then pay you back.
I'll check out the pool you recommended. I need to read more about deadlines as I havent grasped what determines their length and how it varies.
Cheers for now.

No need to pay back, just pay it forward in any case. The more plots you have the higher the probability to get better DL. Happy mining:)
it would be kind from you to help a small miner to start with burst, same probleme, no working faucets
@walav Sent you a few.
