I followed https://github.com/Austin-Williams/zcash-guides/wiki/Guide-to-Mining-Zcash-on-Amazon-EC2
with some minor modifications, but nothing huge.
The daemon should run under normal user, and not root. You can use crontab to make sure it starts after reboot.
I’m using one wallet with 10000 addresses, no source code modifications.
I created 512Mb machine, and then resized it to 8GB for building, and then 4GB for running (you have to start from 512 for disk size to be compatible with downsizing).
In actual practice they remain ambiguous. The last known accounts suspended for mining were a few years ago and it has become quite common since then, although the issue with the TOS was never cleared up. DO took alot of abuse on social media for not allowing mining customers to use all of the resources they were supposedly paying for. But yeah, they have left the door open to stop mining at any moment, so I would say to anyone doing so: Have your backups and alternative services ready for use.
Hopefully that doesn’t happen because I’ve found DO to offer great customer service over the past 3 years.
True, it is at thier discretion how and when they enforce the CPU cycles rule.
I would hate for someone to mine a Block or two only to find later their wallet/account was deleted, not worth the risk IMHO.
Oh. that sounds great. I never knew that DO is allowing this through it’s server. I have also availed the DigitalOcean managed web hosting server which is powered by Cloudways. So, will it support me in mining Zcash coins.?
