In just a few shakes of a lambs tail, you can start earning COINS by mining blocks on the strayacoin network!
BUT FIRST YOU NEED TO CREATE A WALLET!
You may have heard that mining cryptocurrency is a techy process that involves exe pc's, except this is not necessarily true during the creation of a new blockchain. Since the Strayacoin network is new, the mining difficulty is currently switching from easy peasy to tough going. It will be tough to successfully mine on most modern CPUs (old lappy). Now we are seeing a switch to GPU mining, so an old shitty gaming machine should get you close :) ..
This article will cover off configuring the strayacoin wallet and mining script on Windows. If you are a super nerd then use Linux, view the notes in the latest release for detailed instructions.
Let’s get cracking!!!
1.) Begin by downloading the latest Windows release of strayacoin here
2.) Extract the ZIP and SAVE anywhere.
2.) CLICK on strayacoin-qt.exe , it will ask you to select a data directory, it will create a strayacoin directory in %AppData%/strayacoin. Take note of the directory as we will use it in step 4.
3.) You will notice that the application starts up and gives a message that it is attempting to connect to peers, this will not finish successfull, so now CLOSE the app.
4.) Now go back to the folder where you clicked on strayacoin-qt-exe and find strayacoin.conf highlighted in green below, COPY this file.
5.) Now PASTE the file into your strayacoin AppData folder which is located usually at C > Users > #NAME# >Appdata > Roaming > strayacoin (this was specified when you first start the app, any issues start the app and press reset.
6.) Now restart strayacoin-qt and the program will begin to synchronize with the strayacoin network. This can take a long time, please be patient and wait for the process to complete.
IF YOU WANT TO MINE CONTINUE ON, CPU MINING IS VERY VERY VERY VERY SLOW .. LIKE YOU MAY NOT GET ANY
7.) To begin mining on your CPU machine (remember this will be bloody slow,so go to the reddit to get GPU mining), double click on this mine.bat and let it keep generating, you may get rewarded the odd reward but will be very very tough now, but wait... Lets kick the GPU in the guts! the below images are for CPU mining..
8.) So you want to mine like Clive Palmer mines sausages then go here > www.reddit.com/r/strayacoin you will see plenty of mining dicussion and help!
