New Member, New Miner


Hello guys and gals!
I’m a new member and a new miner. I started setting my system up a few days ago and have finally gotten everything working. I initially starting plotting on a slower machine and realized it was going to take about 33 days to get everything plotted. After scratching my and contemplating what to do, I used a faster machine to do the plotting and it went MUCH faster. I have been solo mining just to make sure everything is working for the last day and a half. I am now planning on moving to a pool as I only have about 16.3tb in plots. I think, and please correct if I’m wrong, I need another burst to start mining to a pool. If I try and change the recipient it says insufficient funds.

Happy Mining!



With that size I would suggest the 0-100 pool from crypto. Check in the discord channel to see if someone can send you a burst to switch pools.


Thanks Iceman496! I was leaning toward that pool and your recommendation helps me make my decision.

Off to discord channel :wink:


It looks like you have already found a coin! Welcome to the forum, and good luck!

---- Getting Started Read Below Before Continuing ----

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

Pools for new and low terabyte miners

Highly recommend and pools for new miners with under 24TB!

Helping out new users

I am also looking for people to join in on helping new users get their first coin on the forum. If you want to contribute, but don’t want to be searching for new people, I run a fund that is solely used to send new users their starting coin. I am very frugal with this fund, and make sure everything is put to good use. The address for this fund is BURST-FFLQ-3QZJ-267R-F3QBX


Thanks for the welcome and the info RyanW!!!


You’re welcome, and good luck!
