I have recently switched from geth to parity. I want to know how to mine using parity in testnet?
I am synched using
parity --testnet and I have the web page but how to mine blocks?
Parity doesn't come with bundled miner (not even CPU miner).
You need to install
ethminer and point it to your Parity instance.
# Start Parity and connect to ropsten testnet $ parity --chain=ropsten # and in second terminal start ethminer $ ethminer -F http://localhost:8545
