It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons! March in Mining. I've been running geth --mine for around 24 hours. I'm running it on a Mac OS X 2.
Apparently, I've managed to mine 4 blocks for a total of 20 ether. How can I check what network I'm running geth --mine on, and whether my ether coinbase, Address: Mining with 'geth --mine' doesn't work well, on top of that.
There's no way you've mined 4 blocks; you'd be luck to get that in 5 or 6 weeks with a single desktop GPU. In short, you need to do a lot more reading to even get close to mining, and you're not going to do it with the machine you're using. I know that's not what you'd like to hear, but right now you're just wasting your time. And if you read even more carefully, you may just spot that I'm not really concerned as to whether I have become an overnight ether billionaire.
Rather, my concern is how to check what network I'm actually mining on since I have mined 20 ether somewhere. I pick up my telephone and get dial-tone, but I don't know where it's coming from.
You're either connected to Ethereum or you're not connected; there's no room for ambiguity. I just checked your account number on etherchain. If you are mining with your CPU, it would take you many, many months to find 1 block. I guess I'm just saying, at this point, you don't seem to have enough understanding of what you're doing to be able to ask the questions needed to move forward.
I really not trying to be an ass, I'm just saying you need to learn a lot more before you're going to get anywhere. Right now, you don't know what you don't know.
I'm pretty sure you can supply a network id to have geth mining on a private test network, not just the main one. In fact, I bloody hope so, 'cause that's exactly what I want to do pretty soon! I am just playing for now Can anyone else explain from which network my 20 ether have materialised from? All I've done so far is installed eithereum on my Mac OS X via homebrew, ran geth account new , then ran geth --mine.
Is there a geth console command I can run to see where it's mining? I don't remember it being this much trouble. Lagniappe Dirty South Member Posts: One thing I can tell you for sure, there's no way you've mined 20 eth, with a laptop, in a day's time. It would take you several weeks to earn that amount with a fairly decent budget setup. Could you post a screenshot of what is convincing you that you do have 20 ether? Looks like you are mining on your own block-chain.
From your pic you are at block number 4 of that chain. The real chain is at block number You obviously did not download the main block-chain before starting mining. Sorry, just started mining myself but have yet to get paid out, I'm using to seeing a big fat zero where that twenty is. So I've unwittingly managed to create a private blockchain - cool! Question is, how have I done that?
I've just checked the wiki again, and it says: Note that mining for real ether only makes sense if you are in sync with the network since you mine on top of the consensus block. So, from that, I assumed that geth --mine would just grab the main blockchain then begin mining real ether. Mind you, I should know better than assuming Anyway, how do I reset things so that I'm mining on the main blockchain?
Or am I wrong? I've both solo mined and pool mined. I've tracked my mining intensely and would encourage you to go through dwarfpool or nanopool as they're my 2 favorites. You were hashing at all 4, but didn't win it of course. But I seem incapable of connecting to the main ethereum network, since after running geth in a variety of forms I've tried --rpc alone, --rpc --fast , --rpc --fast --mine , net.
Attached is a screenshot of one such attempt. Why can't I attach to the main network and why can't I download the main blockchain? Could it be that the university firewall is blocking some necessary network traffic for instance? How might I check that? March edited March In Linux just delete the entire geth data directory. Geth will re-create it when it starts as follows: I then ran geth --rpc --rpccorsdomain localhost console. This is all interesting, but I'd love to know why my geth client is not downloading the main blockchain and is not connecting to any peers Screen Shot at Usually created by ethminer but possibly also by geth if geth is used to mine.
Mac directory structure is not my area of expertise. Don't start mining until block-chain is downloaded. I find that if the miner starts that stops geth from sync'ing the chain. You should see this message: Got you - I assumed the DAG was the blockchain, but now I've reread the ethash section of the wiki properly and see it's a dataset that a miner relies on to implement its ethash proof of work algorithm. Problems are cool aren't they? They lead to so much more understanding However, I'd still like to know why I seem incapable of downloading the main blockchain The router needs to be set to forward port , and the Max firewall has to allow that same port to come through.
First, you'll be far, far better to mine on a pool, and for that you can install the homebrew cpp-ethereum repo that has ethminer. Win7 bootcamp and Genoil's ethminer get 30MH on the pair easy. This is what these cards should do, so having unoptimized code is the problem with ethereum mining. I've hashed other algo's on OS X before without trouble, but this dagger-hashimoto is an unusual beast, very sensitive to driver and code optimizations.
I put a note in to Bob Summerwill on github about the homebrew code; no idea how long it'll take them to fold in a newer version, if that does any better. Might give that a shot. I'm playing around with Ethereum as part of a PhD research project, which is broadly on the Internet of Things with a particular focus on blockchain technology.
So I'm really just trying to understand how it all works. Therefore, I'm not so interested in how well my MAC hashes at the moment.
Having said that, all these issues and the feedback I'm getting is really good; I have a broad understanding of blockchain technology, I have a little more in-depth knowledge of Bitcoin and Peercoin, but I know nothing of Ethereum. Yet it seems the flavour of the month In fact, I'm really liking some of the Dapp ecosystem that seems to be evolving around it And yet, having said all that about being uninterested in hashing power, I do have 3 towers at my disposal where I've recently installed Ubuntu At the moment, they lack GPU's, but I have a small budget to buy some and I may be doing just that once I have a better handle on Ethereum's requirements I've already done some of the work for you regarding choice of R's — almost all models are single 6-pin boost cable so a Pro tower can easily handle two of them without adding an external PSU I have the MSI Gaming models , and provide the best hashrate for the money.
Ping me if you want any more help, or better yet go look up Bob Summerwill on one of the Gitter homebrew rooms and ask him where to go for the info you want. I'm checking the balance but it shows zero Please help me. You can't mine with a laptop, in general. On my Mac Pro terminal, it is running this endless, what is it? Am I mining here? What do I have do to do that? What commands do I need to apply?
I found this thread as I tried to determine whether I was mining. It is unfortunate that there doesn't seem to be a clear indicator. Just while I am exploring Ethereum, I have geth running on a linux host with 25 cores assigned. There are no GPUs available and I know this configuration will never be profitable, but it will let me explore Ethereum. I can understand having a 0 balance as I have only been mining for about 3 days. What I don't understand is my hash rate.
I don't know if 0 is the correct value once sync'd but not having solved a block yet; or should eth. Core iQM produces this: Mining with cpu was pointless two years ago. If you want to experiment, make a private chain, there you'll get coins with any hardware https: Sign In or Register to comment.
