New Burst user needs wallet jumpstart

HI. I’m just getting started, need somebody to donate a starter coin for my wallet. My address is BURST-G6JD-M7DW-VXB9-DT8JK. Thanks.

Sending over 0.1 BURST! Welcome! (Yes 0.1 Burst is now sufficient to set up your wallet)

Be sure to follow getBURST on twitter for Burst news and information!

Read the information below carefully, because this is the only Burst I’m sending you :slight_smile: If possible, please help out any new person needing some starter Burst. Donations are also welcome to help me start new people off :slight_smile: BURST-FFLQ-3QZJ-267R-F3QBX

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 - https://forums.getburst.net/t/what-it-means-to-create-your-public-key-aka-activate-your-account-simply-explained/2396

Here is a guide for setting your reward recipient for pool mining - https://forums.getburst.net/t/how-to-set-your-reward-recipient-most-secure-for-your-burst-address/6443

I highly recommend https://0-100-pool.burst.cryptoguru.org/ and http://www.burstneon.com/ pools for new miners with under 24TB!

Thank you, Ryan! I am struggling with setting up my wallet, apparently, it isn’t synching for some reason, and balance still = 0.

I bootstrapped the blockchain from cryptogururepository H2.

If you have suggestions, I would be grateful for any you want to share. I’m going to look around in the FAQ before I download from scratch, my wallet is on my GPU mining rig, I don’t want to shut it down for that long if I don’t have to.

Even if you used the bootstrap, you still have some more syncing to do.

First, I suggest converting over to mariadb as that is a much more reliable database. Are the blocks moving at least?
