Mining on testnet for 2 days and no blocks


#1

I followed this instruction to mine zcash on testnet: https://github.com/zcash/zcash/wiki/Mining-Guide

I've run the daemon for two days and still got nothing:

$ ./src/zcash-cli listunspent
[
]

Is it normal? Is there something i'm missing?


#2

./src/zcash-cli getinfo


#3

I believe mined blocks will not show up as unspent right?


#4

that's also the reason why i'm posting this. how do i see the mined blocks?


#5

does that command give me all the blocks in the testnet or just the blocks i have mined?


#6

oh cool!

"58 blocks received in the last 4 hours"

how do i see the coins though?


#7

Have you requested any ZCash from the faucets?


#8

http://faucet.zeropond.com/ this one on the github page has always been empty.

same thing here. I have the latest RC4, and "zcash-cli listunspent" or "zcash-cli listtransactions" shows me an empty array. Maybe the difficulty has increased and there are lots of other miners with more hashpower. My "zcashd -showmetrics=1" says:
- You have validated 193 transactions!
- You have contributed 3.9611 Sol/s on average to the network solution rate.
- You have completed 2423 Equihash solver runs.
