As we know the block time is 2 minutes so this means we will be able to see the first pending balance in about 2 hours if blocks are found of course from this pool.

Ok so i left my MacBook pro mining for about 12 hours. We can see that i already received a payment from the mining pool, its’s here about 1 BLOC’. And i still have 0.2 something in the pending balance because im still mining.
Let’s check out the transaction in the wallet.
