Where is my wallet address and what is a good Sol/s CPU mining rate?


#1

I have just started mining on Xubuntu following the instructions from...
https://github.com/zcash/zcash/wiki/1.0-User-Guide and
https://github.com/zcash/zcash/wiki/Mining-Guide, and using the equihashsolver=tromp solver.

It all seems to have gone smoothly and was very easy to set-up and I am now running node at ~8 Sol/s CPU mining.

I have 2 questions.
1 - is ~8 Sol/s a decent rate, will it ever solve a block? Is it worth me running a node beyond purely contributing to the network for the fun of it?
2 - Where can I find the public and private keys to my address for the block reward? if I do magically find a block what address will the reward go to and how do I access it?

Cheers Muchly for any help.

1 - unlikely- on average you are talking many months on average to mine a block assuming current difficulty (though you might get lucky)
2 - run listtransactions - do you see anything in there :slight_smile:

Edited to add you could try pool mining and get a small but steady reward.

If you just want zcash-cli to spit out the first address (?) in your wallet:

zcash-cli getaccountaddress ""

Thanks for the responses,

1 - listtransactions returns an empty list.
2 - getaccountaddress returns
"error: {"code":-1,"message":"getaccountaddress \"account\"\n\nDEPRECATED. Returns the current Zcash address for receiving payments to this account.\n\nArguments:\n1. \"account\" (string, required) MUST be set to the empty string \"\" to represent the default account. Passing any other string will result in an error.\n\nResult:\n\"zcashaddress\" (string) The account zcash address\n\nExamples:\n> zcash-cli getaccountaddress \n> zcash-cli getaccountaddress \"\"\n> zcash-cli getaccountaddress \"myaccount\"\n> curl --user myusername --data-binary '{\"jsonrpc\": \"1.0\", \"id\":\"curltest\", \"method\": \"getaccountaddress\", \"params\": [\"myaccount\"] }' -H 'content-type: text/plain;' http://127.0.0.1:8232/\n"}"

So can someone tell me is that looks okay?, the fact that it starts with error and that i see no address tells me not. any thoughts?
