solo mining is difficulty low enough [solved]
« on: January 20, 2014, 09:14:43 PM »

Hi Im looking to start mining and cant find any beginners guides I was thinking maybe I should try solo mining but Im not sure its viable or whether I should just stick to pools dont know if it makes much difference but I have a AMD fx 8120 8core! but a link to both miners would be nice sorry to be a pain in the arse

I highly recommend pool mining.   The expected time to find one block is on the order of 1-2 months right now which means you will likely miss the first snapshot for BitShares X

Solo mining is not viable at all, go to ypool.net or ptspool.com to download the miner and start mining, you'll get your first share very soon!
