New miner looking for a start up Burst,BURST-GB6P-FB6U-248V-C89M4

Please read all of this post carefully because this is the only coin I will send you.

Not trying to be rude, just want to make sure you do not waste this coin as the first is the most valuable.

I just sent a coin your way. You will not see the coin until your wallet has finished synchronizing.

Please come back when you have earned some coin and help others get their first coins. Pay it forward. :slight_smile:

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.

I am an extremely new miner (on all counts) and plotted my HDD before requesting a burst, “activating” my wallet, or setting my reward pool.

Will I need to repeat the plotting process after I request a burst or activate my wallet?

No, not at all. Your plotfiles will forever be linked with that specific address.

Awesome!! Thanks a bunch!! I am going to read all I can before requesting a burst because I do not want to waste it. Is there any “often overlooked” advice you wish you could tell all the noobs before answering the same question 14 times?

For “activating” your account, just read this over first -

The wallet will keep saying that you need to set your name, but you don’t have to. Setting your reward recipient so you can pool mine is the most efficient way.

Thanks Again! I’ll probably send out my Burst request some time this evening.
