Zcash mining | Validating transactions contributed 0.0000 Sol/s

I don’t have much knowledge when it comes to cryptocurrencies and mining .
I am currently trying to mine zCash with my servers. It will defiantly pay out for my situation.

I have already gotten it installed I just don’t know what I need to put into my “zcash.conf” file.
I followed a lot of instructions and the best option seems to be:

testnet=1 > addnode=testnet.z.cash pcuser=username rpcpassword=$(head -c 32 /dev/urandom | base64)
In this picture you can see it running but it’s stuck at 0.0000 Sol/s.

Would highly appreciate any help!

First of all I think you probably don’t want to be on the testnet, but the main net, correct?

    rpcpassword=  [choose a random password!]

Note, you can set genproclimit to however many cores you have on the server.


Dont try to mine with your Wallet … here you are a solominer, the chance to catch a ZEC is very, very small.

Try nheqminer for CPU-Mining and search a pool, like:




they have a lot of informations about mining too.

After getting off the test net mining won’t begin until your node has downloaded the entire blockchain.

This site will show you the latest blockchain number.

You can compare that to where your node is by running the getinfo command from the terminal.

If you update your node to the latest version it will show you the blockchain number in the status screen.

Would it be hard to get that considering it’s dockers I am using?

There’s already a docker avail GitHub - kmdgeek/docker-nheqminer: Docker for nheqminer..
Best to compile the miner yourself so suggest GitHub - sarath-hotspot/nheqminer: Equihash miner for NiceHash

Say i want to mine my pc or gpu at a pool, how do i find that setup. have 2 nodes mining from pc, (i know, ill never get anything as clear for last week) and also the GUI wallet. How can i point my processes to a pool?

Like i said: Look at the Pool-Website.

For example: http://zcash.flypool.org
→ Scroll down and you see all relevant data. The only thing you have to do is: Use your own t-address, instead of the example-address.

All good, now over at flypool, and showing progress, Thanks
