How to get started

How to PoP Mine

See Detailed walkthrough: HowTo_Mine_BTCSQ

BTCSQ introduces PoP mining for Bitcoin based altchains, so PoP mining is a great place to start. It doesn't require expensive hardware.

Anyone can PoP mine:

  1. Download the package:
    1. This includes the BTCSQ daemon, APM, and VeriBlock NodeCore daemon.
  2. Start the BTCSQ daemon (like you would start a bitcoin daemon)
  3. Start the NodeCore daemon. (You can sync from scratch, but the bootstrap downloader will probably be faster)
  4. Let both daemons sync
  5. Start the APM miner, connect it to the BTCSQ daemon and NodeCore daemon
  6. Run the APM GUI at: http://localhost:8081/index.html
    1. Populate your APM with tVBK from this free faucet:
    2. Start mining!
