Hi, i started my first mining adventure yesterday and i have no idea what’s going on. is Peercoin the same as Primecoin?
I am using Primecoin version: v0.1.2xpm-beta
I have had my Primecoin running nearly 24 hours now, it’s saying it’s still catching up? It started at 119 weeks behind, now it’s a 110 weeks behind, but it’s running considerably slower than what it was when i first started with the same amount of connections. Yesterday in the beginning i was clearing 5000 blocks every 7 minutes, now i am only clearing 210 blocks every 7 minutes, and considering i have 1,090,000 blocks still to clear before it’s caught up, i calculate that to take roughly 25 days at the current speed it’s chewing through blocks.
Also, is that why the wallet is not synced yet? Is this normal?
I am just using CPU to mine, i did have an average of 15 connections, but now down to 11.
Thanks in advance!
