Peercoin Minting must be always open?


#1

Hello,

i will minting in Peercoin but i need to keep the application up or I can close the application for the staking?

(Sorry for my English)


#2

It needs to be up and “unlocked for minting only”. A synced client should not take up many resources.


#3

Mmm…

Okay I will use my Raspberry Pi for this ^^
But there a version GUI of peerunity?


#4

why not try peerbox? it is designed to securely mint peercoins on your raspberry pi
www.peerbox.me

/shameless plug

Okay… with peerbox, we must download the Blockchain?


#6

you can even get 20 PPC with it if you run a full node :slight_smile:
