To encourage all the community to join the fair mining, MultiVAC testnet 2.0 provides two mining modes.

  • Self-Mining: you need to equip your own hardware and run the clients by yourself.

Overall mining process: apply for mining whitelist → choose mining mode (self mining or cloud mining) →check the reward→start mining.

If you want to be a miner, please follow the official process:

  1. Apply for the whitelist and choose one of the two mining modes;

Details are as below:

1.Apply for the whitelist

Click this link to apply: http://mtvmining.va.mikecrm.com/E91WWVV

2. Wait the team informs if you get into the whitelist

The team will manually review all the applications.

Mining will be started immediately after the approval, please pay attention to the official announcement.

Please note here:

(1) Due to the large volume of applications and limited whitelist spots, we thanks for your patience to wait.

(2) If you have already filled the form in the recent pre-application, you don’t need to fill it again. Please just wait for the approval.

3.Configure and start to mine

3.1 Cloud-Mining (No need to do anything. We will start it for you.)

(1) If you get into the whitelist, the admin will contact you through telegram or wechat.

Meanwhile, the team will start mining automatically for you. You just need to wait for the reward.

(2) The server cost will be deducted from your transferred amount.

Server cost is: 24 * total transfer amount / 1024 MTV per month

For example, if you transfer 10,000 MTV and choose cloud mining, the server cost is 234.375 MTV per month, the deposit amount is 9,765.625 MTV, and the reward is 9,765.625 / 100,000 x number of shards x 10 MTV

3.2 Self-Mining (download, configure and execute the mining client on your machine)

(1) Equip the hardware

  • Lowest hardware requirements: 2-core CPU, 4GB memory (Hardware doesn’t relate to the mining speed)

(2) Gain the mining client from the admin.

(3) Open the client and add execute permission.

chmod +x ./MultiVAC

(4) Execute the mining client

./MultiVAC -C=mtv_conf.json -H=data
