This short guide will get you up and running mining BiblePay (BBP) on your computer – either on your own or using a mining pool.
First you need to download the wallet. Get it at www.biblepay.org. Download the wallet that fits your system. We’ll be using the Windows 64bit version for this guide.
Let the download finish and install the wallet. When you run a wallet for the first time, the entire blockchain is downloaded to your computer. This can take a while – just be patient and wait.
Meanwhile, register at one of the mining pools for mining your coins. This is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you’re mining using an average PC, you could go for many weeks before seeing any mining rewards. Using a pool, you’ll get a smaller amount, but more often as you mine with other users. Currently you have two to choose from:
0-6% fee, 24 hours maturity
2%-fee, 24 hours maturity
Now we need to modify a file called biblepay.conf and tell your wallet to start mining. If you’re on Windows press the Windows key + R to bring up a Run… box. Type %AppData%\BiblepayCore and press enter. Locate the biblepay.conf file and open it in your editor. Add the following to your file:
addnode=node.biblepay.org addnode=biblepay.inspect.network gen=1 genproclimit=1 poolport=80 pool=http://pool.minersofmen.com workerid=[yourworkername]
The first two lines add a few nodes from the BiblePay network. Next we have gen=1, telling the wallet to mine. Genproclimit=1 is the limit on processes the wallet can use for mining. Check your CPU usage and try raising the limit. Poolport=80 simply tells the wallet to submit results via post 80 on youer compurter.
Remember to change the last two lines to fit your mining pool and worker information. The address for the official mining pool is http://pool.biblepay.org/ – and remember to put in your own username.
Have fun mining BiblePay / BBP!
