According to Coingecko, Poloniex has more volume, but their website was timing out a few hours ago. Laggy performance after it came back. Never gives me a good feeling.
I followed your steps and am mining through CMD. I have a couple questions though:Sample instruction if using eth.nanopool.org
You can then see your status at http://eth.nanopool.org by typing in your address into the search box.Code:
1. Download & Install Ethereum-win64-latest.exe from [url]https://build.ethdev.com/builds/Windows%20C%2B%2B%20develop%20branch/[/url] 2. Download & Install mist wallet from [url]https://github.com/ethereum/mist/releases/download/0.3.9/Ethereum-Wallet-win64-0-3-9.zip[/url] 3. Create a wallet in Mist and copy the address (long string starting with 0x) 4. Open a command prompt with administrator privileges 5. cd "c:\Program Files\Ethereum 0.9.41\Release" 6. run following, replacing [B]address [/B]with your hexidecimal address from mist. ethminer.exe -F [url]http://eth1.nanopool.org:8888/address/miner1[/url] -G
1. Yeah, just hit Ctrl+C to exit out of the mining process.I followed your steps and am mining through CMD. I have a couple questions though:
1. When I want to quit mining, do I just exit out of CMD?
2. How do I know when I've found a share?
Thanks for all your help! My Fury X is currently getting 33.7 Mh/s.
Nevermind. I think I figured out the answer to my question.
I believe you need support for UPnP or NAT-PMP on your router. May also need to make sure the Windows Firewall service didn't block it. It should have asked for you to allow it.So I can't seem to get my Ethereum wallet to connect to peers so it can download the blockchain. Any ideas?
Yes, you could mine to an online wallet or a "cold storage" wallet.Is it possible to mine without downloading the whole blockchain? And how do I know when this thing is finished or sync'd up?
It wouldn't surprise me if there are people trying to pump and dump Ethereum, but Ethereum isn't a short term fly-by-night altcoin. The amount of development that's gone into it is significant, it has unique applications because of smart contracts (though there are one or two other new "bitcoin 2.0" cryptocurrencies now doing similar things), and there are large companies including banks and IBM and Samsung that have been experimenting with Ethereum for a while now. It's not just a clone of Bitcoin.Hmm, having little knowledge of Etherium brought me to the usual place I look for cryptocoin news (Bitcointalk) in which I found this thread.
This has me a bit worried about it but maybe this is a bunch of FUD or do you think this is a pump and dump?
Also there's this:
Many (most?) alt-coins have been scams or failed projects. Many exchanges as well. Not sure about this one but definitely not buying or mining any "ether" until I learn more about this. I suggest you all do the same, don't want to see anyone lose any money.
