    huh another coin. Well it's always good to be in on the launch. How do you start mining this without a pool? Can you please enlighten us newbies? I missed the BTC boat and always wanted to get in on something. I got 2 290x's laying around doing nothing besides gaming

    If I am not wrong, I guess the name of this coin was discussed on BHW. Don't exactly remember but it was few months back.

    Anyways, congrats!

    Are the creators of this coin from BHW?

    Thank you for joining in! there are several ways you can join in and start mining without a pool. I will try to break it down into two two categories, CPU and GPU mining.

    CPU: first off you need the wallet, so head over to the official ann. thread over at bitcointalk https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=589672.0 and download the wallet. Once you have it downloaded open the wallet and let it sync, you can also choose to follow the image instructions which are located right below the wallet download or you can continue on here. Once the wallet is synced click the "help" menu and then select "debug window" finally select the "console" tab. Inside the console tab you will want to fire off the command to start mining, which is "setgenerate true 4" without the quotation marks! the number would be how many cpu cores you would like to mine!

    GPU AMD: just like above you need to download the wallet and open it at least once in order for the file we need to edit to be created. Close the app and look for the file "coin.conf" which will be located in the same folder as your wallets EXE. once inside make sure it looks like this...
    Once you copy the above and create a random user / pass you will need to create a bat file for your GPU miner. In this example we will be covering CGMiner! Once you have it downloaded open up CGMiner's folder and create a bat file with the following information...
    Once you run the bat file you should be mining away!

    GPU Nvidia: Luckily Nvidia cards are just as easy to mine with! Unfortunately not as efficient. First download Cudaminer a simple google search will work! then like the above AMD steps simply download the wallet and open it up once, then close it. Edit the "coin.conf" file with the same settings from the AMD section. Then go to your cudaminer folder and prepare a bat file! for this bat file simply use...
    then run your bat file! sorry if I missed anything, its a bit late here in california and im pretty high / tired lol

    Thanks for explaining how to mine. I'm up to 398 kh/s on my overclocked 7850

    This rules I'm finding blocks every few minutes! Super fun! I hope this turns out to be worth something big in the the future. California rules!

    Thank you! I wish I had more to do with this coin honestly! I am not sure if the admin is a BHW member or not, he is on bitcointalk and that is where I saw the coin. I mined it from block 1 and had a lot of fun so I decided to try to help the community by sharing the coins info here. Which is why I linked to the official ANN thread on bitcoin talk. Enjoy and hope you all get a lot of coins! stay tuned for the airdrop too! (California residents only)

    Another question what's the best GPU for the buck, I'm hearing from a lot of people on reddit that it's the 270x

    your thoughts?

    I'm looking to upgrade

    Honestly im starting to learn towards asics for scrypt mining just because electricity costs in California are retarded. I pay like .37 per KWH for like 75% of my usage. We are on a tiered plan in California, its pretty stupid. asics are more expensive but use way less power and save u a lot of cash in the long run. However for GPU's I always compare price with KH that can be found here https://litecoin.info/Mining_hardware_comparison The AMD 7970 cost around 225+ on ebay and various places and can get 780 KH which is not bad at all! but the best thing to do is check cards on the chart above, sort by KH and check prices.

    Are the coins available for sale? Rather buy outright then to mine. Any plan to list it on the exchange?

    Yeah if u check their bitcointalk thread there seems to be talk about getting the coins on the exchanges. For now I'm keeping mine and seeing if this could go far. Less coins than Dogecoin so I really like it and it's fun to mine

    this coin is crap. I was a part of it until the owner re-launched without telling the devs... like one user said on bitcointalk, "this dev couldnt code his way out of a test message" lol.
