I’ve been interested in supporting this project from the beginning and I have zero software engineering/ programming experience AT ALL, but I could see the potential for the upheaval of the entire e-commerce space with the inevitable ousting of Alibaba , ebay and Amazon.
With that being said, I’m wondering how else I can get involved - I have bought over 300K safex coins (despite the hate and silly behaviour last year), I have been discussing Safex on my Steemit blog and I’m trying to mess around with my PC to get into the whole mining thing.
This may be a series of questions that could benefit other inexperienced users who are also trying as they might to get themselves involved. I guess I’ll just fire away and hope a few people here can provide some answers!
- I’ve only got an AMD system running an FX6300 cpu with 8gb RAM running Windows 10. I downloaded and booted Ubuntu from USB and running it on a virtual machine. When I go to compile, I get errors along the way. The thing I’ve been changing is only how many cores I’m allocating for use - I tried 3 got to 53%. I tried more (4), it got to 65% before failing. I’ve tried backwards and forwards hoping something would change. I finally got to 83% (as of this message) on 1 core. Who knew less was more. However, I’m not holding my breath as it’s been sitting on 85% for a few minutes (it is currently building the wallet).
Is there any method to my madness here? How can one effectively allocate resources to get past just the compling stage without all the hiccups?
I’m in two minds at the moment as to whether I should be buying more Safex coins instead of investing in a safex cash mining rig. However, my question here is when GPU mining comes online, can I mine using the same process (through the terminal on ubuntu) or will I need to do something else?
This might sound like a super-idiotic question BUT, are we only mining Safex cash or should/could we be mining safex coins/tokens?
