Checking balance on a flypool miner am I doing something wrong?

On host A I ran

~/zcash/./src/zcash-cli getnewaddress

~/zcash/./src/zcash-cli z_getnewaddress

I stood up a gaggle of AWS spot instances and let them bang away for a while at zcash.flypool running this. Note ‘t-addr’ as directed by flypool because of a bug.

nheqminer_cpu -l -u t1MVUxFhAcj84mh8u49kF7dDY3TzhSbPew1.$HOSTNAME

After a while there was a payout

From Host A … how do I check the balance?

I know it’s not much but the AWS spot effort is more ‘dabble’ than ‘serious’ at this point.

~/zcash/./src/zcash-cli getinfo

Am I doing something wrong?

Your blocks are at 9934,

Your blocks are at 9934,

If I understand you correctly, the value ‘blocks’ has to equal 13783 before I can access the data in t_addr.

In other words, I booted Host A 40 minutes ago, I need to give it more time to catch up.


I think it needs around 30 minutes to sync. But yes you need to give it more time to catch up.

This java wallet shows how many % of your blockchain is synced. Nifty.

There is it. Cool - now I can go out and buy a piece of gum.
