Use the following instructions to mine a block.


Open your wallet, and make sure your wallet is connected with a node.


Your wallet is connected when you see the icon Wallet connections scrypt and SHA256 in the lower right corner of your wallet.

The message “Syncing Headers (0,0%)” will disappear once you mine your first block.


Note: replace “examplecoin” with the name of your coin.


Close your wallet and create the file dsfr.conf in the folder “%APPDATA%\dsfr”.

Paste the following text into dsfr.conf and save the file.


rpcuser=rpc_examplecoin

rpcpassword=pifw1fqxfkdd23n59rcr63sqrfiqkw184uxb0blo

rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

listen=1

server=1

addnode=node1.localserver.com


Open your wallet.

Create a .bat file named mine.bat in the same folder where you extracted example-cli.exe and paste the following text into mine.bat.


@echo off

set path_cli=%cd%

cd %path_cli%

echo Press [CTRL+C] to stop mining.

:begin

examplecoin-cli.exe generate 1

goto begin


Save the file.

Execute mine.bat to start mining your first block.

It will take about +/- 30 minutes to mine your first block, depending on your computer hardware.
