Ever wondered if you could be a miner by yourself?
Imagine to create crypto currency, just by …
I am pleased to announce:
MiningHere has also now a pool for Burst coins.
All you need to mine Burst coins is:
- a computer (Windows, Linux, Mac)
- Internet connection
- three programs: Wallet, Plotter and Miner
- option: a fast graphic card
- … and plenty of free hard disk space.
Let me start with the last one. If you are mining Bitcoins or other Alt coins, you will need heavy (expensive) machines. As more hash rate you got, as more likely you will find coins.
Burst coin mining is different. The “hash rate” is created with free hard disk space. As more hard disk space you can offer, as more you are mining.
You can start with any size, but it makes only sense if you are in the Terra Byte range. You can add a USB-3.0 external hard disk. You can even use USB-3.0 hubs to connect multiple large drives, just for mining. The good thing is, if you don’t want to mine any more, you still can use the hard disks. With an ASIC miner, you can’t!
There are following programs available:

After running the wallet, you may need to wait a few minutes till the blockchain is loaded, access it through a web browser at the same computer: http://localhost:8125
Login with your pass phrase (anything longer than 35 characters) or just let the system give you a random password. DO NOT LOSE THE PASSWORD PHRASE, there is no way to retrieve it! DO NOT LOSE THE PASSWORD PHRASE. Print it, laminate it, put it into a safe box, …
When upgrading wallet, move burst_db folder into new wallet folder to avoid re-downloading the blockchain.

You need to prepare your hard disk – ONLY once!

After downloading, installing and reading you are ready. You have started your wallet, you logged into your wallet, … and you cannot do anything before you got some coins. You can go out and buy coins at an exchange, but I will give you some for free. Go to http://support.elmit.com
In this ticket you write the BURST address of your wallet. A BURST address looks like: BURST-X2MY-DV84-GB2J-HCXZE
After receiving your ticket, I will send you some BURSTs.
As soon you see in your wallet that you got some bursts do following:
1. click on the left upper corner, where it says “No Name Set” and set a name you would like to remember your wallet. That cost 1 BURST, but luckily you have got from me 😉
After you have set a name the text below the Dashboard, reminding you that you have a new wallet will disappear.
2. go to the web site:
… that is on your computer, your running wallet 😉
