Finding blocks at launch


#1

What chance will the Zcash wallet have at launch of finding blocks


#2

Is this a stupid question? Will the difficulty be to high to solo mine


#3

It's not a stupid question, just hard to answer. It all depends on the network difficulty and your hardware. If you're just going to solo CPU mine with an old i5 laptop then you will have a hard time finding a block, but if you have a desktop with a good GPU then you may have a better chance. It's really hard to say.

You could also connect to a pool to get small amounts of ZECs in proportion to your mining, so you don't have to wait for a full block.


#5

just wondering if trying to solo mine the first few days or week would be more profitable than running in a pool ?
