New BURST member!

Hi, I recently plotted a 2tb HDD and have been trying to mine it for the past 2 days but I keep getting this error:

{“result”:“Passphrase is for a different account”,“requestProcessingTime”:41
{“result”:“Passphrase is for a different account”,“requestProcessingTime”:10

I read its because I need to activate my account with burst so I can start mining. I’m new to crypto mining and any freely given information will be well received!

Thank you !



Woops forgot my burst address:

Sending over a coin, welcome!

Contrary to what most of the getting started guides say, you only need to create one transaction to “activate” your wallet. Changing your reward recipient to a pool for mining gets this done. Please read this post regarding activating your account - What It Means To Create Your Public Key (AKA “Activate” Your Account) - Simply Explained

Highly recommend pool for mining. No fee, and run by the Burst developers!

With the amount of coins I am giving out daily now, I’m trying to get people to conserve coins when starting off so I can help out more people. If possible, please help out any new person needing a coin. Donations are also welcome to help me start new people off :slight_smile: BURST-FFLQ-3QZJ-267R-F3QBX

Damn, I messed up I think. I"m still getting that same message. I’ve been mining for 5+ hours now.

It keeps repeating, "
{“result”:“Passphrase is for a different account”,“requestProcessingTime”:27
{“result”:“Passphrase is for a different account”,“requestProcessingTime”:28
{“result”:“Passphrase is for a different account”,“requestProcessingTime”:2}
I followed these instructions:

first thing : You need a plot that was generated for your own account (just like on solo mining)
please read forum how to generate plot
Run your burst client (wallet)
Using your browser go to
on the bottom ( see “Set reward recipient” )
Put your account secret passphrase there (the one you use to login into your wallet)
set recipient as
click submit, then wait for 4 block
now you can close your wallet
Download miner creepMiner
Edit mining.conf set poolUrl and miningInfoUrl to
run miner

What did I mess up?


Could I get another BURST? :blush:

It looks like you set the reward recipient correctly…had you waited enough time (4 blocks == 15-20 minutes) for this change to take affect effect? Are you still having the problem?

Thank you for the reply!

I managed to fix it. I originally created the plot file with a different burst coin account. I recreated the plot file with my real account name and I stopped getting those errors.

Noobie mistake!



Glad you figured it out, thanks for updating everyone :slight_smile:
