I am very new to cryptocurrencies and mining, so please bear with me.
I left zcash running for over 20 hours, and it says that I’ve completed 40 transactions, which is of course to be expected. However, it says that I’ve contributed 0.0000 Sol/s on average, and I’ve completed 0 Equihash solver runs.
Is this supposed to happen? Or is there something wrong with my configuration of zcash?
Thanks so much for your help!
Edit: I’ve figured out what the issue was. In my .conf file for zcash I had the “genproclimit” set incorrectly. So, I correctly set it to the amount of cores in my CPU.
Yes, I have that in my .conf file! The issue was that I followed the instructions and added, genproclimit=$(nproc) in my file manually instead of from the command line. I noticed this and manually added the correct amount of cores in my machine and it seems to be working really well now!
Solomining depedns a lot on luck. It is a lottery.
Mining for a pool gives you a more steady revenue as you contrubute with shares to the poolnetwork.
At the current network difficulty you need about one month (33 days) worth of mining with 1000 Sol/s (thats like 8 RX470 graphiccards atm) to find a block. On average. You could also mine forever with 1000Sol/s without finding something.
