I was under the impression of skipping the idea of mining of KOINOS coin. As first of all there are few things which I really was considering and mostly about the outcome of these whole process. As a matter of fact I somehow forgot about it and after the mining went live
October 13th, 17:00 UTC after few hours different posts started to go out. I am not into techy stuff but the post from @mindtrap really got me. His config was the thing which attracted me. I have slightly better config so I thought of giving it a try.
Even though I wanted to get in yesterday as soon as I read about from different users post but my ETH on my wallet was playing games with me and I was quite tired to try it out. While the ss is, while I was working on other things on Brave broweser. The usual hashrate is between 1.5-2.
While as soon as I woke up today, I installed the Miner from here and went through the process accordingly. This should guide you through the process for you https://github.com/open-orchard/koinos-gui-miner . If I have to descibe it in easy terms than you will need the following
- A decent PC (The faster the better in terms of config)
- ETH (for transactions to go through)
- Decent internet connection
I have been mining for few hours now and I have 8 Gigs RAM and with i5 processor. So far it is gave out 109 KOINOS, not sure if it is good or bad but let me see for the next few days and I will probably get a rough idea of what is actually going on. At first I selected
proof of frequency to 4 to get the result as soon as possible. Upon completing the first 1, I calculated to find out the cost and it cost me around 0.0074 ETH ($2.82). While I have changed the proof frequency to 1 (maybe it was a bad idea) and seems like it is taking much longer time than I anticipated.
I like the concept behind it and the vision of it as well. This could be a game changer for us all or it could be nothing but since we are watching with technological advancement it is hard to leave an opportunity at hand. All the best to all miners!
