This is the best plotter out there. Engraver. Best to do your plots just one big one per drive.

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

---- 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 - 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 so much! im having an issue that maybe you can help.
im still trying to download the rest of the blockchain but its going really slow at about 20 blocks/min.
i see that i received your starter burst in my wallet but it does not show in qBundle, do i have to wait for the blockchain to finish before pool mining?


#4

Yes you have to wait before your wallet syncs before you can do things like set your reward recipient.

It can take a long time.

There are web wallets that people use, but I trust only using nodes on my own computer. In Qbundle, if you go to Database -> bootstrap chain it will speed things up.


#5

yes i did do the bootstrap and it got the total to like 97% but its just that last little bit


#6

im trying to figureout how to add burstneon from the starter list u suggested but i cant figure out how to add it into pool on qbundle


#7

I put links in my post to help you with that.


#8

is there somewhere recent i can download the latest blockchain file i have at least 40,000 blocks left to download


#9

Not that I know of sorry…

When I first started I synced for over a week.

https://wallet.burst.cryptoguru.org if you don’t want to wait.


#10

im sorry what do i do with this link? just brings me to my wallet


#11

That’s a web wallet.

Someone else runs a node on a server, and lets people use it. This is all synced so if you don’t want to use your local node, then you can use this.

Using your local node is the most secure, though.
