what am i doing wrong? :(



  • 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 !!!!

    1. You were probably trying against a not fully synced wallet.
    2. No, only need the one coin to set the initial reward assignment.
    3. Your plot is probably too small, until you increase capacity look for a pool that accepts longer deadlines.


  • wow i actually started getting some green lines after an hour or so :)
    so i guess issues are resolved !
    occasionally i get the hdd wake up message but i guess its nothing to worry about right?

    as i see on pool.burstcoin.ro webpage : Payout 4 times per day on first block hit after 7AM 11AM 5PM 11PM Romania time minim 50 Burst.

    which means i need to hit 50 Burst to get a deposit on the wallet?



  • Dont worry about the hhd wake up messages that just means the block time is a little longer than normal. ;)



  • @tminer0315
    as i have seen i get some green lines here and there.point is that i am mining on http://pool.burstcoin.ro/

    and from their interface is really difficult for me to find my id and see if and what i am earning.also found burst4all.com which is set on max 1Tb miners so for me starting now sounds kinda cool,problem is i dont have the 1 coin to change if i do not get any payouts from what i am mining since this morning and i cant find out where to see that.



  • How long have you been mining? In order to get a payout you pool needs to mine a block while you have a deadline to get "credit" if you will for mining, then you probably should try to find out how often payouts are for your pool, them may be once a week or every block.
    Hope this helps.



  • @tminer0315 almost 2 days now,i get smthing like 0_1514389468822_ab9fa396-d307-4872-84e8-430a36f8c602-image.png

    managed to get here so far,i do not know how to figure what i am getting and how often



  • 500 gb is not going to earn much burst! Now if you get lucky and forge a block well youll get paid nicely. Your on track, Green letters--- found dl, blue letters -- sent dl to pool, light green letters.. ofcourse pool confirmetd your dl.
    You want more DL's you need more HD. but you got it



  • @tminer0315 all green and blue lines indicate that i am getting something right?

    i wish i knew what i have mined so far , do you happen to know how can i do that?
    to see for example that so far i mined 1 coin and i need xxx number till i can have them sent on my wallet/.? i do not mind the quantity of coins i generate,i like the concept of it compared to other coins mining and will eventually go up in HDD space
