how to shibecoin v rich in minutes much instruct so simple any doge can do
UPDATE 1/21/14: I'm not updating this guide anymore. Most of the steps should still work though. See the wiki or check the sidebar for updated instructions. Before you do anything else, you need to get a wallet. Until there's a secure online wallet, this means you need to download the dogecoin client. Now open the client you just downloaded. You'll be given a default address automatically, and it should connect to peers and start downloading the dogechain (aka blockchain in formal speak). You'll know because there will be a progress bar at the bottom and at the lower right there should be a signal strength icon (TODO: add screenshots). If you've waited 2 or 3 minutes and nothing is happening, copy this:
And paste it into a new text file called dogecoin.conf, which you then place into the dogecoin app directory.
On Windows this is C:\Users\[YOUR_USER]\AppData\Roaming\DogeCoin
On Macs it's ~/Library/Application Support/DogeCoin
Now restart your qt client and the blockchain should start downloading in about 1-2 minutes. Once it finished downloading, you're ready to send and receive Dogecoins!
Decide how you want to get Dogecoin. Your options are:
I'll go into detail about each of these. I'm currently writing this out. I'll make edits as I add sections. Suggestions are welcome.
Mining is how new dogecoins are created. If you're new to crypto currencies, read this. To mine (also called "digging"), a computer with a decent GPU (graphics card) is recommended. You can also mine with your CPU, but it's not as efficient.
These instructions cover only Windows for now. To mine, you'll need to figure out what GPU you have. It'll be either AMD/ATI or Nvidia. The setup for both is approximately the same.
Step One: Choose a pool
There's a list of pools on the wiki. For now it doesn't really matter which one you choose. You can easily switch later. NOTE: Youcanmineintwoways.Solominingiswhereyouminebyyourself.Whenyoufindablockyougetallthereward.Poolminingiswhenyouteamupwithotherminerstoworkonthesameblocktogether.Thismakesitmorelikelythatyou'llfindablock,butyouwon'tgetallofit,you'llhavetosplititupwithothersaccordingtoyourshareofthework.Poolminingisrecommendedbecauseitgivesyoufrequentpayouts,becauseyoufindmoreblocks.Thelargerthepoolyoujoin,themorefrequentthepayouts,butthesmallertherewardyouget. Overalongperiodoftimethedifferencebetweenpoolandsolomininggoesaway,butifyousolomineitmightbemonthsbeforeyougetanycoins.
Step two: Set up pool account
The pool you chose should have a getting started page. Read it and follow the instructions. Instructions vary but the general idea is:
Create an account
Create a worker under the account
Grab the mining URL (usually on the getting started page)
Setup your cash out options in your account settings by entering one of your wallet's receiving addresses
When you're done with this, you'll need to know:
Your account, worker name, and worker password
The mining (stratum) URL (usually the pool's URL followed by a port)
Step three: Download mining software
For best performance you'll need the right mining software.
Create a text file in the same folder as your miner application. Inside, put the command you'll be running (remove brackets). For AMD it's cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://: -u -p For Nvidia it's cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://: -O : Substitute the right stuff in for the placeholders. Then on the next line of the text file type pause. This will let you see any errors that you get. Then save the file with any name you want, as long as the file extension is .bat. For example mine_serverName.bat.
Step five: Launch your miner
Just open the .bat file and a command line window should pop up, letting you know that the miner is starting. Once it starts, it should print out your hash rate. If you now go to the pool website, the dashboard should start showing your hashrate. At first it'll be lower than what it says in the miner, but that's because the dashboard is taking a 5 minute average. It'll catch up soon enough. NOTE: Anormalhashrateisbetween50Kh/suptoeven1Mh/sdependingonyourGPU.
You're now mining Dogecoins
That's it, nothing more to it.
CPU mining isn't really recommended, because you'll be spending a lot on more on power than you'd make from mining Dogecoin. You could better spend that money on buying Dogecoin by trading. But if you have free electricity and want to try it out, check out this informative forum post.
Trading has been difficult so far, but Dogecoin just got added to a few new exchanges. If you don't have a giant mining rig, this is probably the best way to get 100k or more dogecoins at the moment. I'll write up a more complete guide, but for now check out these sites:
Faucets are sites that give out free coins. Usually a site will give out somewhere between 1 and 100 Dogecoin. Every site has its own time limits, but usually you can only receive coins once every few hours, or in some cases, days. It's a great way to get started. All you do is copy your address from the receive section of your wallet and enter it on some faucet sites. Check out /dogecoinfaucets for more. If you go to each site on there you might end up with a couple hundred Dogecoin!
This method is pretty straightforward. Post your receiving address, and ask for some coins. Such poor shibe. The only catch is, don't do it here! Please go to /dogecoinbeg.
Other redditors can give you Dogecoin by summoning the tip bot, something like this: +dogetipbot 5 doge This might happen if you make a good post, or someone just wants to give out some coins. Once you receive a tip you have to accept it in a few days or else it'll get returned. Do this by following the instructions on the message you receive in your inbox. You reply to the bot with "+accept". Commands go in the message body. Once you do that, the bot will create a tipping address for you, and you can use the links in the message you receive to see your info, withdraw coins to your dogecoin-qt wallet, see your history, and a bunch of other stuff. As a bonus, so_doge_tip has a feature where you can get some Dogecoins to start with in exchange for how much karma you have. To do this, send the message "+redeem DOGE" to so_doge_tip. You'll need to create a tipping account if you don't have one. If you want to create a tipping account without ever being tipped first, message either of the bots with "+register" and an address will be created for you.

4. Restart BiblePay How to Withdraw Coins From Pool? The pool holds onto your coins, go to "Account" >> "Withdraw" to withdraw your coins In your BiblePay Wallet go to "File" >> "Receiving Address" and you can right click and copy the address and paste it into the Pool's Withdraw screen as the "Destination Address", then click the "Withdraw" button and the coins will be sent from the Pool to your Wallet Setup Auto-Withdraw Navigate to Account >>> Account Settings >>> Verify your BBP Receiving Address >>> Click Authorize-Auto-Withdraws Why use a Pool? As the network hash rises (as more miners are mining), it can take longer and longer to solve a block, by using the pool, everyone works together with all of their hash power to solve blocks, and the reward gets split between everyone who contributed based on how much they contributed in hash. With solo mining (not using the pool) it may take 1 month to finally solve a block and get large BBP reward, with pool you can get small frequent BBP rewards every ~30 minutes. (BBP meaning BiblePay coins) How to Update: Download exe from biblepay.org and install again, your wallet will stay intact Backup: Your wallet.dat stores your private keys that contain the access to your coins, this file is backed up every 24 hours in the backups folder, We also recommend that you save a copy of this file in other places, like a flash drive Learn More about Backing Up your Wallet.dat https://www.reddit.com/BiblePay/comments/7lksp4/backup_walletdat/ FAQ QUESTION: How long does it take for coins to mature? If you're solo mining, the coins become mature after ~100 blocks. If you're using the pool, they become mature after 24 hours QUESTION: How do I know if I am currently mining? In your wallet >> In Top left Menu select "Tools" >> Click "Debug Console" Type in the command: getgenerate If it returns true, mining is turned on command: getmininginfo Will show how much "hashps" (hashing) your pc is doing, "genproclimit" will show how many mining threads you are using "poolmining" will be show value of true if you are successfully mining on the pool How to Buy or Sell BBP coins?

[Guide] No hardware to mine? How to net 6,000+Ð/day using Windows Azure
Inspired by lleti 's free guide for using Amazon Web Services. However, from what I understand due to rental costs, it is more efficient to buy doge directly than use AWS. This guide is based on utilizing the $200 credit that comes with the Windows Azure cloud computing free trial, so you will not pay anything. This is targeted at shibes with poor hardware that can only mine 50-200 doge per day, but it will work for everyone. Disclaimer: Doge rate is an estimate based on current difficulties and market. Windows Azure trial may be US only (?) Overview / How it works You will not be mining doge directly with this method. Mining doge effeciently requires a GPU, which aren't found in traditional servers. Instead, we will be using the powerful CPUs provided with Windows Azure servers to mine a CPU based crypto-currency, such as QuarkCoin or SecureCoin, and convert those to doge. Steps 1) Install your QRK or SRC wallet Ideally if you are reading this, you have installed a dogecoin-qt wallet for yourself before. We will need to do the same for either QuarkCoin or SecureCoin. This is the wallet where will will send the coins you mine with your Windows Azure servers.
These are not the only CPU coin options, but QRK and SRC are very similar (same hash function) and simple to mine. Once you have installed the wallet, it should look very similar to your DogeCoin wallet. If you have trouble downloading the blockchain ('out of sync'), look at thesethreads respectively to see which nodes you need to add to your config file. Config files are located at C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\CoinName.conf on Windows. 2) Set up a mining pool account If you have joined a mining pool for DogeCoin, it will be a very similar experience for other alt coins. See the following bitcointalk threads which have a list of mining pools:
If you would like a pool recommendation, I can recommend src.coinmine.pl and qrk.coinmine.pl; this is from personal experience, I am not affiliated with them. Once you are logged in you should also create 3 workers, as we will be setting up 3 servers, one for each server. So you should have 3 worker names, and a password set up for each worker. 3) Sign up for Windows Azure free trial Link: www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/ You will have to provide a valid credit card and verify your account with a cell phone so they know you are a real person. This is a Microsoft product so they are reputable. Once you sign up, you will receive a $200 to use in 30 days. Remember to cancel when your credits are running out so they don't charge you. 4) Create Windows Server instances I would recommend you watch this video which walks you through the UI of the Windows Azure management site to set up the virtual machines we need. Essentially we are going to do the following:
Create 2 Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 instances with 8 CPU core / 14 GB RAM option
Create 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 instance with 4 CPU core / 7 GB RAM option
Thus we have a total of 20 CPU cores to mine QRK / SRC with. We want the the most CPU power we can get without excessively burning our $200 credit. That's why 2008 R2 is used, and only 3 instances of it. 5) Remotely connect to servers and download miner This section is also covered in the video from section 4, watch it for a visual walkthrough. Once the servers have been initialized on Microsoft's end, we should be able to access them under 'Virtual Machines' at www.manage.windowsazure.com. You should see each host name and a status, and when selected there should be an additional 'Connect' button - click it. You should now be prompted to download a .rdp file. Download this for each of your 3 virtual machines to a folder you will remember. You will open this .rdp file and use the login credentials you previously specified to connect to each server. Once you are remotely connected, you should see the desktop. Open up the first icon on the taskbar that looks like a server, this is your server manager. We need to open up the 'Configure IE ESC' setting that's visible on this pane. Make sure 'Off' is selected for both admins and users on the IE ESC configuration. Now, open up the IE browser and navigate to https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9cvOfoOekSdVzZZcThLZHg4bjA/edit. Press Ctrl + S to download the entire zip to the desktop, and un-zip it. 6) Configure and start miner Again, this is pretty much covered in the video from section 4, if you prefer watching. You should now have a folder on your server's desktop named quark-v2_w64. This is the miner for both QRK and SRC. We are going to be using minerd64_sse4.exe. Create a shortcut to minerd64_sse4.exe within the same folder. We now need to add the parameters for your miner. Right click on your minerd64_sse4.exe shortcut -> Properties. Look at the target field, it should look like this:
We are going append the following format to this target field
-a quark -t 8 -o stratum+tcp://src.coinmine.pl:6020 -u user.worker -p password
-a: algorithm, both SRC and QRK use 'quark' -t: number of cores (so either 8 or 4 for our purposes) -o: mining pool information (url and port). -u: account you have for your mining pool, then a period, then a worker name -p: password that you created for the worker in step 2 So here is an example of what the target field of your shortcut should look like when you are done:
7) Profit!! If you set up your miners correctly on each Windows Server VM (I prefer to assign a separate worker to each one), you should be able to run them and see an output like this: http://i.imgur.com/3lECqSz.png. You can close your remote sessions without interrupting it. How do you get the doge, you ask? Well, using the above setup I have earned 10 SecureCoins in the past 2 days. These are worth 0.00094 bitcoins (BTC) on Cryptsy at present. A doge is worth 0.0000007 BTC at present, so if I go from SRC -> BTC -> DOGE, I can turn 5 SRC to 6,642 DOGE on Cryptsy. There are also other exchanges, I won't go into how to exchange coins on this post. Remember, this is every day for about a week, for free! Also, you can CPU mine on your own personal computers as well, not just the servers. TL;DR Mine QuarkCoin / SecureCoin using Windows Azure free trial, use Cryptsy (or other exchange) to convert to DOGE. Much more efficient than CPU mining Doge.
This is intended to be a short guide covering the most common questions and answers for new Shibes. For more detailed guides on all of the topics mentioned here, see the "Getting Started" sidebar. How Do You Pronounce Doge? Doge like Vogue. Or like the guy in the background of the Snoop Dog song "What's My Name". I Got a Tip, What Do I Do? If you received a tip from another Redditor, dogetipbot will send you a private message asking if you want to accept the tip. Just send a reply with +accept in the message and dogetipbot will create your wallet automatically and send you the wallet address. I Haven't Gotten a Tip But I'd Like to Get into Tipping. If you've never received a tip but still want to get started, send a private message to dogetipbot with +register in the body and dogetipbot will make you a Reddit Dogecoin wallet. How do I tip someone? Below your comment, type: +dogetipbot 500 doge (change the 500 to the amount of doge you wish to send). If the user doesn't accept your tip or doesn't set up a wallet for 2 days, tip expires and is credited back to you. How Does My Doge Tipping Account Work? It is automatically linked to your Reddit account. To add Dogecoins to it, send them from your software wallet. Once you have coins in your Dogetipbot wallet, you can also do it in reverse - sending the Dogecoins from your Dogetipbot wallet to your software wallet. How Do I know the Tip I Sent Worked? You will receive an instant "successful" message if the receiver already has a dogetipbot account. If they dont initially but register for one after receiving your tip, you will then get a "successful" message. After two days if the tip is not claimed, it is returned to you. What is the easiest and safest way to buy Dogecoins?
Purchase Bitcoin(s) using Coinbase.
Send your Bitcoin(s) to a Dogecoin exchange (in order of volume): Cryptsy, Vircurex, Coined Up, CoinEX
Trade your Bitcoin(s) for DOGE.
How do I mine Dogecoins?
Already have the software wallet? Skip to 3. Otherwise Download the Dogecoin wallet from Dogecoin.com
Unzip and run the Dogecoin-qt.exe program (no installation needed).
Now that I have Dogecoins in my software wallet, how do I get them to my Dogetipbot wallet so I can tip on Reddit?
Just send the amount you wish from your software wallet to the dogetipbot wallet address it provided you. To retrieve your dogetipbot wallet address, send a message to dogetipbot with +info in the message.
What commands can I send to the Dogetipbot? Send a message to dogetipbot and in your message include one of the following commands: +register - request a dogecoin tipping address that you can send dogecoins to. This will also become the address received tips go to. +info - check your dogecoin tipping balance. +withdraw - used to withdraw coins from your Dogetipbot account to an external address (like the software wallet you downloaded on your computer). Syntax: withdraw [wallet address] [amount] doge (or) withdraw [wallet address] all doge (withdraws all your dogecoins). Don't include the brackets. +accept - accept a tip if you've never registered with dogetipbot before. If you've already registered, you will accept tips automatically. +reject - reject a tip. Can only be done if you haven't registered yet. Not recommended (who would say no to free DOGE?).
The Absolute Crypto-Coine Beginenrs Guide to MyriadCoin-Mining
Hello, I'm a new member of the Myriadcoin-Community and I made a mining guide for crypto-currency newbies over on my blog. I thought it would fit here as well, hoping that some newbie would discover it upon his quest for mining crypto-coins. (I hope it is ok, that I just copied it over)
The Absolute Crypto-Coin Beginners Guide to MyriadCoin-Mining
I researched the technology behind Bitcoin, especially the blockchain, for the past week because it could have been helpful with my current research on electronic voting that I am doing for my project thesis. During that I was amazed by the simple and yet powerful ideas behind crypto-currency. I was tempted to invest some of my spare money (which is not much as an undergraduate) into crypto-currencies, but was appalled by the weak points of Bitcoin, that become apparent if one researches it. (Malleability, 51% Attacks, Selfish Mining, etc. If there is interest I can maybe try to scramble together an article going in detail about attacks on crypto-currencies) Then I discovered Myriadcoin, which solved most of the problems I had with Bitcoin. Although I myself am quite new to the Myriadcoin-Community I present to you, the absolute crypto-coin beginners guide to Myriadcoin-Mining. The following guide is written for Windows, the process may be similar on Linux/Mac OS but is not 100% the same
Setting up your Wallet
Your Myriadcoin-wallet is very much like your everyday wallet. It holds your currency, and if you lose it your money is gone.
Go to the Myriadcoin homepage
Download The wallet for your OS. (Currently there are Windows and Mac OS Wallets)
Unzip the downloaded
Start the myriadcoin-qt.exe
After the installation is done you should see your wallet stating that your current funds are 0 MYR. At the beginning the wallet has to download all the information from the blockchain, which can take a while. You can see the progress at the bottom of the wallet. Upon pressing the receive-button at the top you will see your automatically generated address. This address can be used to receive Payment. You can generate as many adresses as you want. Under Settings you can Encrypt your wallet, which you probably should do if you plan to use it seriously. Keep in mind, that if you lose your password you have no means to get to your money. Under File you can create a backup and save it somewhere.
Getting to Mine
Mining is the process which verifies currency transactions between accounts. It is simultaneously the process which generates new coins up to a limit. (20 billion is the limit for MYR). To mine a block means to solve a cryptographic puzzle in form of a hash. Myriadcoin uses 5 of those hash-algorithms. If you are a complete newbie to mining and crypto-currencies chances are you do not have specialized Hardware. Because of that it probably is best if you mine using the skein, groestl or qubit algorithms. Do not be scared of the names, I will guide you trough. If you made your mind up which of those you want to use (just pick one, if you do not want to research them) you can go to this post. The following step by step guide is using the skein algorithm with the Modified cgminer and the cryptorus mining pool. The steps can differ slightly if you use a different algorithm or pool, but should be similar.
Go to the above linked post and scroll down to the Standalone Miner Section
Go to the homepage and register if necessary (Lets say my name is Testhans)
Once you registered you should look for the My Workers Option
There create a new worker. (Lets say I make a worker with the name Myry and the password 1234)
Now unzip the Miner you downloaded
Go to the folder of the miner and create a new textfile that you name run.bat
Go to your pool-website and look for the stratum address. (Can be usually found on the startpage, in this my case stratum+tcp://myrsk.cryptorus.com:3333)
The run.bat should look as follows: name_of_miner.exe -o stratum-address -u YouName.Workername -p Workerpassword (For some algorithms you have to set the algorithm as an option too) This is how my config looks with the examples above: cgminer.exe --skein -o stratum+tcp://myrsk.cryptorus.com:3333 -u Testhans.Myry -p 1234 Save the run.bat and you should be able to start the miner through double clicking. A console-window should open displaying the progress. Every time you find a share a message saying something along the lines of "Accepted 214sabc5fe 4/2" should be displayed. You can enter your Myriadcoin-address inside the Account-Options of your pool, so you can receive your share of the coins you mined. Typically you have to arrange the transaction yourself. Usually the miner can take a lot of options to optimize the amount it can mine, but as a newbie you are likely to break more than you get out of it. The standard-configuration of miner-tools is in most cases pretty good allready.
You can find further resources on the bitcointalk-forums and the awesome subreddit. Also there is another mining-guide, which goes into more detail on all of the algorithms and can be quite helpfull if you are just new to Myriadcoin and not to the crypto-currencies as such. If you have any suggestions or questions feel free to leave a comment, and if you found my guide useful and want to share some of your hard-mined coins, you can do that also. My Myriadcoin address is MKF8EPYksAV4Bn7M8HLEMyvEPtq3EWeGVW
Hello guys, I've noticed day by day that new shibes joining our community with next to none experience in how cryptocurrencies wallets works, and have seen many questions here and there. And I've decided to collect the common questions [ FAQ ] and try my best to answer them in a beginner-friendly way that might be helpful to the new shibes out here =) I do not intend to compete with the other getting started guides over the community, but having a one place with common beginners questions is nice. If you couldn't find enough answers in this post, feel free to ask in the comments, I'm sure that me and other helpful shibes will be around to help! Dogecoin Wallet Getting Started.
Why do I need a wallet?
The wallet is used to store your coins and to make transactions, it's the one place that will store your addresses to send and receive coins.
Ok, so I need a dogecoin Wallet, what should I do?
The hard, official, safe way: Go to HERE and select your operating system. Yes, this is the Hard way as it might take forever to sync and get started with this wallet when you run it for the first time, there are easier ways to get a wallet, but I do not, and will never Recommend that you use any other methods than this. Be safe and get this one AND only this one to store your coins. Why? Because it's the official and safest client. The easy way, suggested by flickerkuu .. The creator of http://www.dogedoor.net/ A light wallet can be found here: http://multidoge.org/
I hear people talking about Encryption, why do I need to encrypt my wallet?
There is a file called " Wallet.dat " which your wallet reads to get all the data, basically; all your coins, addresses, and transactions are stored within this file. Imagine that this file was not " Protected enough " and someone has access to it? Yes, that's right, they will have access to everything in your wallet. By encrypting your wallet, you're adding a second layer of protection to your file, so even if someone has access to your " Wallet.dat ", they will still be unable to do anything with it without the password, so make sure that you DO NOT FORGET TO ENCRYPT YOUR WALLET!
Ok, so how do I secure (Encrypt) my wallet.dat file?
Run your Dogecoin-Qt.exe you downloaded from the first step, click Settings, encrypt my wallet, include everything that is possible in the password, lowercase, caps, [email protected]#$, whatever you would like. Make it long enough and easy to remember! Forgetting your password means your coins will be gone, forever.
How do I receive coins?
Open your wallet, click on Much Receive, this is the place where you can use or generate new addresses. Copy the address and add it to the Pool, or whatever method you use to get coins. You can create a new address if you wish to!
Is it important that I backup my wallet?
Yes it is, Why? Imagine that your hardware fails? Your data gets lost? Or for whatever reason your wallet data file disappeared? Backup your wallet and stay safe!
How do I Backup my wallet?
It's simple! Run your Dogecoin-Qt, click on File, Backup wallet, call it something like wallet.dat and SAVE IT IN A COLD STORAGE ( USB Drive, External HDD, whatever you prefer ). For your safety, having it saved in multiple destinations isn't a bad idea. Saving in on a cloud storage ( Dropbox, etc) is! NEVER HAVE IT STORED ONLINE!
How Frequently should I backup my wallet?
I've been searching around for an answer, and I'm here to share the most convenient answer that I found, because it makes sense to me rather than the rest answers asking you to backup after EACH transaction. This answer is bitcoin wallet client related, but should apply for Dogecoin-Qt as well. I personally backup as much as possible! It takes seconds and it never hurts!
The Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind client's keypool has by default 100 Bitcoin addresses. Each spend transaction that has change chews up one of those addresses. Additionally each click on New Address will consume an address from the keypool as well. So you should be able to get by without a new backup until after 100 spend transactions plus any requests for a New Address. So if you do 10 spend transactions a month, and receive funds 5 times a month you would be fine with a backup every 4 months maybe. A backup plan should consider that backups fail, so multiple backups don't hurt anything. The size of the keypool can be configured so that frequent use can occur without having to make backups as frequently. For instance, weekly backups would be fine for a wallet that does 100 transactions a week but the keypool has size of 250. When the wallet is encrypted, no keys are added to the pool until an action that requires the passphrase to be entered. Backup strategy should take this into account. And finally, if you import a private key, that key will not exist in any previously made backups.
