A Tutorial for QuarkChain’s PoSW Mining

Aug 21 · 2 min read

Recently, both token holders and miners in QuarkChain community have been very active. On one hand, QKC holders wish to get more interests; on the other hand, miners hope the mining difficulty is lower. PoSW proposed by QuarkChain benefits both token holders and miners at the same time. Therefore, the miners and community members of QuarkChain have shown great enthusiasm for the PoSW mining model. However, some community members may still not know how to enjoy the high efficiency of PoSW and how to become one of the miners.

Don’t worry! The QuarkChain team members and enthusiastic community members made a tutorial for us. Professional miners and members who want to participate in the mining can both have a chance to enjoy mining on PoSW.

To summarize the PoSW mining tutorial: Tell the miners about your QKC wallet address you saved which meets the quantity requirements of mining, ask the miners to use it as a mining address, and then return the mining benefits to the miners regularly to mine.
