To see your total balance start the zcash daemon with the command “zcashd” and wait until it’s synchronized. If it’s synchronized you can use the command “zcash-cli z_gettotalbalance” to see your total balance.
If you are interested in mining zcash you should use a pool. For example: https://zec.nanopool.org/ https://zcash.flypool.org/
If you don’t know how to mine, you can find a how to on both websites.
