Hello all,

New miner here. Burst will be my first mining experience. As instructed, I am requesting 1 Burst coin in order to activate my account and get started. I look forward to repaying your kindness and speak to you in the forums!

Looks like you already received a coin.

The following are some notes from the process I went through to get started. Hope you find them helpful.

You only need one coin for reward assignment when joining a pool. Joining the pool will get you into the system. You do not need to send any others.

I recommend watching the following video on YouTube to learn how to get started.

I wish I had watched this video before getting started. It would have saved me a bit of frustration and a squandered coin.

I also recommend you perform all actions through the Qbundle software. When I first started I tried setting the reward recipient (for pool mining) through the web interface for a pool and ended up wasting a coin. I also gave up on trying to configure creepMiner and am just using Blago Miner that comes with Qbundle.

When you finally get your system up and running you will likely see a warning message like the following

“Warning!: Your account does not have a public key! This means it’s not as protected as other accounts. You must make an outgoing transaction to fix this issue.”

If you will be joining a mining pool then ignore this message. Setting a “Reward Recipient” to get into a pool will be your first transaction which will get you a public key and the warning will go away.

Oh man great info. Thank you so much! i went and tried to setup the reward recipient from the wallet itself but i dont think it worked. it said rewardassigment did not complete. any thoughts on this?

SO i think i just wasted a coin with the name thing and now it seems i cant join a pool…do i need to ask for a coin again?

Looks like you might have entered the wrong Burst ID when setting the reward recipient. What pool did you intend to join?

Hi Michael,

I tried to entered the 0-100 pool. i don’t have many disk right now hence why i figured this would be a good pool to start.

Sending you another coin. Enter the following (under Pool account) when setting the reward recipient (Tools -> Reward Recipient) in Qbundle

0-100-pool.burst.cryptoguru.org:8124
