>he doesn’t use a 200W box fan to cool down his miners
it’s almost as if you don’t want to be a pro
if u a pro whatelse can u learn.
very new to mining! How do I start the wownero miner??? Downlaoded it, but… I’m a mining noob
Which miner did you download?
If you want to solo mine, you can just type
start_mining <cores> (e.g.
start_mining 4 for 4 cores) into the wallet CLI to start mining.
If you want to mine in a pool, you need to download XMRig and pick a pool (HashVault and wowne.ro are good choices ) and download. The pools usually have a getting started guide, but the short answer is that you need to paste the pool’s address and your Wownero wallet address into the
Also remember that you only get paid a little while after a miner on the pool finds a block, so don’t expect anything to show up in your wallet instantly
Many thanks for the fast reply. This helps a lot. Downloaded 3 files directly from wownero homepage. Thought this was the miner I will try it with the wallet now.
Many thanks again.
Good luck solo mining! It’s great because it keeps the network decentralised, but if you’re a small miner (only a few Kh/s) it can take a long time before you see any rewards.
Yes I will also have a look at the pools - sounds interesting too
thanks again for the tip!
skypool.org has found 70 of the last 100 blocks. not good!
44 of the last 100 blocks were found by a pool unknown to miningpoolstats.stream
Another options for mining
