Do you just install the client and then that's it, you're mining?no mining with BitShares .. it's a (Delegated) Proof of Stake system ..
I think you're mistaken. From the announcement:
Currency Unit: SPK (Spark)
Mining Algorithm: SHA512 (initial, may change subject to delegate vote.)
Initial Supply: 100M SPK (Divided among AGS, PTS, and BTS holders)
Mining Reward: 50 SPK / block, linearlly decreasing to 0 over 100 years.
Workers Reward: 50 SPK / block, linearlly decreasing to 0 over 100 years.
Block Interval: 20 seconds
Maximum Spark Supply: 7,984,000,000 SPK after 100 years.
Precision: 5 decimal places
