Open your wallet, and make sure your wallet is connected with a node.
Your wallet is connected when you see the icon Wallet connections scrypt and SHA256 in the lower right corner of your wallet.

The message “Syncing Headers (0,0%)” will disappear once you mine your first block.

Close your wallet and create the file blockcoin.conf in the folder “%APPDATA%\blockcoin”.

Paste the following text into blockcoin.conf and save the file.



Open your wallet.

Create a .bat file named mine.bat in the same folder where you extracted blockcoin-cli.exe and paste the following text into mine.bat.


@echo off
set path_cli=%cd%
cd %path_cli%
echo Press [CTRL+C] to stop mining.
  blockcoin-cli.exe generate 1
goto begin

Save the file.

Execute mine.bat to start mining your first block.

It will take about +/- 30 minutes to mine your first block, depending on your computer hardware.
