That looks fairly standard. It shows you are receiving work and performing hashes.

You need to have a share accepted for nanopool to update. Maybe double check the address is correct. If that's correct, it could be you that you just haven't had a share accepted yet.

  • ok, by share accepted do you mean whoever runs the pool accepting the amount of work i have accomplished and then i should receive payment for it? sorry brand new to this lol – MrsDog Feb 26 '17 at 21:41
  • Yes, when you mine a valid share, nanopool will accept it and credit your account accordingly. – ETHme Feb 26 '17 at 21:47
  • awesome, and i ll be able to see that pop up on my mist wallet or just check on etherchain.org? – MrsDog Feb 26 '17 at 21:53
  • Nanopool has a minimum payout of 0.2 ETH. This means you must mine 0.2 ETH before nanopool will credit your eth address – ETHme Feb 26 '17 at 21:56
  • alright i guess i ll just let it run and see how it goes after sometime mining. Thanks for the help bud! – MrsDog Feb 26 '17 at 21:57
