Hi everyone. I noticed that there are a lot of people in this forum that are interested in mining zcash. If you are new to mining and aren't sure where to start, I put together a guide for you.
https://github.com/Austin-Williams/zcash-guides/wiki/Guide-to-Solo-Mining-Zcash <--- New One [Works]
These are the basics of solo mining (with the native zcash miner) as I've come to understand them by floundering around with the software for a while.
I hope you find it useful.
