I'm trying to mine ETH on windows wit ATI GPU. I made these steps:

  1. Downloaded geth and put it into a folder ../ethereum/geth
  2. Downloaded ethminer and put it into ../ethereum/ethminer
  3. I run command geth account new and set password
  4. I run command geth --rpc --fast --cache=1024
  5. I run (into another cmd window)

setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 ethminer.exe -G --cl-global-work 16834 --cl-local-work 256

In the cmd windows it started to print the hash rate and other data.

Now, I want to ask you: how can I check if everything is ok?

(eg. "I miss something?", "Am I mining on the correct wallet address?", "How I earned?" etc.)


An indirect way to do it is to check your balance. If it's non zero that means you are mining.

An easy way to do that is search for your account number at https://etherchain.org and take a look at the balance.

However, if you are solo mining (and it looks like you do), I am not sure how long would it take for you to have any balance after you start mining. Maybe it's minutes or maybe it's days? If you figured it out let me know. I'd like to know myself. Thanks.
