Newby question about mining


#1

Do I need to generate a t-addr after install before I start mining?

I installed and compiled, it runs fine (cpu 100%) but where are stored the coins if I didn't generate an adress first?

./src/zcash-cli z_listaddresses
[
]

./src/zcash-cli z_gettotalbalance
{
"transparent" : "0.00",
"private" : "0.00",
"total" : "0.00"
}

Thanks

What are you mining with just the zcash client for linux ? if so then it will create an address if you find a block. i think zcash-cli listtransactions will show the address. but i doubt you will find a block that way, sign up to a pool and mine that way.
