I started parity node in dev network using this command
parity --jsonrpc --jsonrpc-port 8180 --chain dev --author * --geth
the author is the address of my parity node client
and then I start mining by starting ethminer
ethminer -F http://localhost:8180
I supposed that after mining started my account can gain some ether but I didn't received any ether.
Can you help how can I run private ethereum blockchain using parity and gain some ether for some testing on sending transactions and deploying smart contracts?
