I signed up for ethereum on my mac. I followed the instructions and this has been what has been going on since right after midnight last night. There is process, I'm just not sure what is going on. Am I mining?
That screenshot means,
- You are using a MacOS. :D
- Starting up Mist Wallet of Ethereum blockchain.
- Mist is started downloading the blockchain data to your computer
- There are 4 peers connected to your computer.
- You are at block
Mist is asking you to choose the network which you want to use
- You can either choose main net to mine real ETH or testnet
It means you can either use the test network or main network to develop contracts.
