Solo Mining VertCoin (Am I doing this right?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I have questions about how to solo mine vertcoin.

I have done Pool Mining, P2P Mining, never tried Solo Mining.

So Far I have been mining 15days, with P2P, and I'm not impressed only 40 Coins.. 690Kh/s (2x 280x)

So I have setup my Vertcoin Wallet to Be a Server with the "Vertcoin.Conf" file with the following.
rpcuser=WhatEver
rpcpassword=RandomNumber
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcport=9332
daemon=1
server=1
gen=0


I have Setup a "Server.cmd" file to run this.
start vertcoin-qt.exe -conf=vertcoin.conf

I have my Vertminer ver 0.5.2 to mine with this config.
{
"pools" : [
{
"name" : "Solo",
"url" : "127.0.0.1:9332",
"user" : "WhatEver",
"pass" : "RandomNumber",
"pool-priority" : "0"
}
],
"expiry" : "1",
"queue" : "0",
"scan-time" : "1",
"gpu-threads" : "2",
"gpu-dyninterval" : "7",
"gpu-engine" : "1000",
"gpu-memclock" : "1475",
"gpu-powertune" : "10",
"gpu-vddc" : "1.075",
"intensity" : "13",
"worksize" : "256",
"lookup-gap" : "2",
"thread-concurrency" : "8192"
}


My miner is hashing but, I see no accepts, Blocks are changing and the Diff is changing. So am I mining? I do see best share changing.

My understanding for Solo Mining was that it selects a block and you hash it out all your self. Am I doing this right?

I honestly dont know much about solo mining, because if you are in a pool, I can see where the pool would accept your share, but on solo that might not be the case. The rest of your settings look good though.

Go here to find out how long it will take to find a block

You may be waiting a very long time unless you have a massive farm at your disposal.

It says about 18 days, in turn I have mined about 43 Coins in the same time period. Chances of finding a block before the 18 day mark are 50%, even tho it could take much longer. Its gambling, I like to gamble alot.
