  1. The difficulty is now very high. I'm not sure it's still very profitable to mine. Unless you choose the most efficient server. The one at 0.007c/hour is not very powerful but it's the most efficient at Digital Ocean in term of power/cost . You don't need much ram to mine Datacoin, only CPU are important.
  2. It mean you mined some Datacoin, (2 block) But they are not "mature" yet. So they are not available yet. Each block reward need 3200 block maturation. You can see the number of confirmation with : datacoind listtransactions
  3. You just add the line in the conf files. Something like that : cd mkdir -p .datacoin echo 'server=1 gen=1 rpcallowip= addnode= addnode= rpcuser=DatacoinMiner rpcpassword=[PASSWORD_CHANGE_ME] sievepercentage=xx sievesize=xx' > .datacoin/datacoin.conf
  4. You do datacoind getbalance to get your available balance , then : datacoind sendtoaddress xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx amount to send to your home address
  5. This is guide step by step on how to mine Datacoin. You can use it on any cloud provider, but i will use Digital ocean in my exemple. If you sign up, please use my referral link : DigitalOcean.com 1. Go the website and sign up for Digital Ocean . 2. Fund you account with Paypal or Credit Card Try the coupon : DIVEIN10 3. Click the Green 'Create Button' or the Blue 'Create Droplet' Button 4. Create an ubuntu 13.10 x64 Droplet, with the size you want (more CPU, more performance) 5. Username and password will be emailed to you 6. Use an SSH client like Putty ( Putty ) to login. - Open Putty, Enter the adress IP of your newly created Droplet in the field (Port 22 and connection type : SSH ) - Then click "Open" - Use the username + password who was emailed to you 7. Use the following scripts. Copy a step in the clipboard (ctrl+c) , then paste in the Putty windows (right click). Wait for a step to finish before doing the next. Install the dependencies sudo apt-get install -y build-essential m4 libssl-dev libdb++-dev libboost-all-dev libminiupnpc-dev git Install the last version of GMP cd rm -rf gmp-5.1.3.tar.bz2 gmp-5.1.3 wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/gnu/gmp/gmp-5.1.3.tar.bz2 tar xjvf gmp-5.1.3.tar.bz2 cd gmp-5.1.3 ./configure --enable-cxx make sudo make install Create a swapfile (unneccesary if you have 1GB de RAM or more) cd sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=64M count=16 sudo mkswap /swapfile sudo swapon /swapfile Install Datacoin (can take some time) cd git clone https://github.com/foo1inge/datacoin-hp cd datacoin-hp/src make -f makefile.unix sudo cp -f datacoind /usr/local/bin/ Create the .conf file cd mkdir -p .datacoin echo 'server=1 gen=1 rpcallowip= addnode= addnode= rpcuser=DatacoinMiner rpcpassword=[PASSWORD_CHANGE_ME]' > .datacoin/datacoin.conf Launch Datacoin and start mining datacoind --daemon Check Mining info and balance watch 'datacoind listaccounts & datacoind getmininginfo'
