How do I send the etheruem I mined? Let's say I mined some etheruem. How do I send it to coinbase so I can sell it? I use Geth. (GPU)


You can send mined ether in the same way that you send received ether. Assuming you run this on the node where you're running your geth instance, start a geth console using this command (same for Windows/Command prompt, macOS, Linux flavours):

geth console # I assume geth is in your path

Then, in the geth console, run this:

eth.sendTransaction({from:eth.coinbase, to:COINBASE_ADDRESS, value: web3.toWei(AMOUNT, "ether")})

This sends AMOUNT ETH (or ETC) to the address provided to you by Coinbase at COINBASE_ADDRESS. You will be prompted to enter your Ethereum account password if you have one. I'm assuming you didn't start geth with the --etherbase argument; if you did, then you'll want to replace eth.coinbase above with your Ethereum account address in single quotes ('), including the leading 0x in the address.

  • Well how am I supposed to know how much I have? – TotallyJohnDoe Jul 21 '17 at 20:13
  • You can check your balance using instructions from here: github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/wiki/Managing-your-accounts . I just realized that by "mined ether", you might mean rewarded by a pool rather than blocks you mined. Can you please edit your original question to reflect that? – lungj Jul 21 '17 at 20:18
