Is CPU Mining working?


#1

I tried today to setup a CPU miner using the docker images. While it seems like it is doing anything, I am not sure if it is really working. What are the messages I need to look up in the log file to be sure that it is actually working fine? If I checkup my address in an explorer, I don’t see that any ZIL was given as reward.

I noticed on https://viewblock.io/zilliqa that the system currently bootstraping and that no reward is payed per block while others sources seems to claim that no transactions are performed, but the miner gets rewarded.

So how to I see that the miner works?

You can use the node identifier script by Jeremy to find out:

CPU mining does not cut it anymore as the shard difficulty level is not 34. You will need at least 286Mh/s of hashrate to get into the network.
