I’m New, started last night but am unsure if I have set this up right.
I have an account with supernova and I have downloaded ZCash Swing Wallet (which is now 100% sync’d)
I started off my ZEC Miner last night and this is what it looks like:
but when I go to the supernova pool I don’t see any activity?
am I solo mining? will I get some funds in my wallet after a certain threshold is me?
or am I doing all this for nothing?
here is the config file from the Zec miner:
many thanks in advance
Did you create a worker on suprnova?
For user param you’re meant to supply the username associated with your account followed by the workername separated with a .:
Before you fill in the above, create a new worker.
For receiving funds, you’ll need to fill in payout address and set payout minimum on account page.
I am such a wally, been mining like that for about 8 hours, wonder where all my efforts went
thanks for the info though.
I’m up and running now
to the gods of nul. your sacrifice was appreciated greatly
You are an advanced user from where I sit.
I heard the ceremony podcast on Radiolabs… and thought I’d “get into crypocurrency” with little hands on IT experience. Basic GitHub is the upper limit of my expertise.
I have downloaded Jaxx… but could not see how to purchase zcash. Realised I needed to get to an exchange to buy zcash.
Joined BITFINEX… and now I have the following questions?
- Can I buy zcash with fiat currency or do I have to mine to get zcash?
- Do I have to buy Bitcoins and then exchange these to zcash?
Can anyone point me to the idiot’s guide to zcash?
Hey, first off welcome to the forum
There are two main methods used for acquiring zcash.
The most common choice is to buy bitcoins and then exchange these to zcash, these can be acquired from a btc atm, localbitcoins, wire transfers via any of the reliable trusted centralized exchanges (gemini comes to mind - avoid coinbase, they are a headache from own personal experience) or decentralized exchanges (bisq).
You could also set up an account on purse.io, and get bitcoins by filling a shoppers order; you can sometimes get better exchange rates than most of the exchanges but downside is you can’t specify amount.
Another means is via mining with a GPU rig, but unless you have 6 or more cards, you may be waiting a while to get anything near to significant daily rets.
One last thing, you might want to consider one of the GUI wallets from @vaklinov and @anon47418038, seeing as by using just jaxx you’ll be missing out on zcash’s main killer feature, private transactions.
Thanks. That is exactly the information I needed!!
