New to Burst--Need a Coin


#1

Hi all. Thanks for this site and all. Looking forward to getting started and need help with getting a coin. BURST-ZEP2-R3U7-JL7W-FQ6BJ

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Thank you so much, Michael. I have done a good amount of research, so I am good with the basics. However, I am confused about the more complicated? stuff. Such as, how to read all the fields in the blago miner. I have tried to research that, but have not found a good source on it yet.

One thing that is confusing me is, like the guy was talking about in the video you kindly posted for me, that you never need to replot? Do I just leave the drive mostly full with the same plot files forever? Is it necessary every so often to replot? Any info or relevant links would be appreciated. Once again, I very much appreciate you helping me out. I will definitely help someone else out once I get established.

Here is a link regarding the Blago miner window

The only time you should need to replot a drive (or individual file if more than one file per drive) is if the plot file gets corrupted. I did see a post by Ryan stating that plots created by plotters other than the one that is included in Qbundle might need to be updated before a change in the network occurs. So that could be an instance when you would need to replot.

But normally you do not need to replot a drive.
