Solo mining primecoin with a laptop
« on: October 24, 2013, 12:42:13 pm »
Hi all :)
I am trying to solo mine primecoins with my laptop cpu intel core i5 with my wallet console. And when i type getmininginfo it says that primespersec : 875, which i dont if it is ok. Is it worth to keep doing this for any coin? I am using the cpu at 100% for 48 hours now and there is still nothing. Is there a micro chance to get something with this speed? And if i encounter something it will be like single block or just one coin or fraction of a coin? Thank you. Wish you luck!

If you are solo mining you're trying to "solve" complete blocks (this is true for any cryptocurrency I know).
If you want to continue solo mining primecoin you should probably use the high performance client: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=255782.0

Based on your stats in your first post the time to find a block mining solo is 34.74 days and your monthly turnout 8.72 XPM.

Go pool mining. Join IRC to talk about mining and probabilities. :)


BTW my i7 Laptop does 1600 primes/s, so your stats look good.

I had a go at mining solo on my laptop, managed to get 1 block in the first day but it orphaned, and didn't get any since. Quickly moved onto pools and now I'm actually making a bit. If you can get that many primes/s, you'd be almost guaranteed to get something in a pool

When solo mining, is it normal to see "Pool 0 not providing work fast enough"?  I have only ever pool mined before so I can't tell if I'm doing this wrong.  I've been running this for 12-18 hours now and not a single block found.  Somebody over at btctalk claimed they were getting 2-3 blocks per day solo mining at 180GH, I'm beginning to think he was just trolling.

screenshot...


This is my .conf

Code: [Select]
listen=1
upnp=1
server=1
rpcuser=name
rpcpassword=pass
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcallowip=192.168.1.*
rpcport=9902
gen=0
reservebalance=10000

Should I have daemon=1 included?  Not sure what that does.  And until I solve a block, I'm not sure if having a reservebalance is wise or not.  I don't want to wait for 500 blocks to be able to use my coins...as I understand the proof of stake thing?

Clearly a noob here.  Any help is appreciated.

edit: bah, discovered I'm in the xpm section, not the ppc section.

I think you want to be mining PeerCoin and Not PrimeCoin with that KNC miner   http://www.peercointalk.org/index.php

According to the calculator: your "chainsperday" is 0.40343851, you will find a block every 110.99 days which is about .07 USD.

Currently no ASIC's (publicly) exist for primecoin. Its not as simple as BTC. BTC is just 2 SHA256 functions on a specific string
More PC's = more chains a day. Not even a fully working GPU miner exists.

Also what is the difference between primecoin and peer coin?
Primecoin uses prime number chains as proof of work


Im getting ~2.7 chains perday from my i7-3770 (non-k version not overclocked, standard Air Cooled)
I think stick to pooled mining.
