basic mining question
« on: December 02, 2013, 05:38:44 PM »

hello forum,

I'm just getting started here. I've downloaded the Mac client, manually added nodes, and got synched up.
I've selected 3 process mining. Is it like BTC mining is that I have to 'get lucky' to get coins? Is it still feasible for a solo, at-home machine to mine coins?
And I suppose if I were to mine coins they would show up in my client's balance?

Just trying to guage what to expect.

If you're just solo-mining on a single home computer, you'll need a lot of luck to find a block. You should join a mining pool if you want a steady income:

I have a Mac client.   How do you add nodes?

Thanks in advance
