With MainNet launch just one week away, MWC Lead Dev Chris Gilliard published an “all you need to know” update on MWC mining – which will be quite simple, given that MWC was forked from Grin.
“In order to mine, you need an MWC full node and grin miner software. They can be found here and here respectively. Our latest release of the full node does not support MainNet. If you try to run it on MainNet, it will print out an error saying MainNet is not enabled yet.
We will publish a new release of the mwc-node the day before MainNet launch. This release will have MainNet enabled and have the final production genesis block. If you want to test, you can run on the full node on the floonet now, to ensure you are ready for 11/11.
The final genesis block will have a timestamp of 11/11 at 9 am UTC. This means blocks will only be valid after this time. So we can expect the first blocks to be mined after that time, which is 4 am ET. We will post another update when the updated version of mwc-node is released. Please also note that the network supports both C31 mining and C29d mining. The older C29 grin plugins will not work.”
As MWC is SCARCE, pays a DIVIDEND, is AT LEAST as technically proficient, and will have the LOYALTY of the 1% of the BTC holder base that registered for this FREE airdrop, I find it difficult to believe a significant amount of Grin (and Beam) miners will not migrate to MWC, in the coming weeks and months.
The MWC airdrop registration ended July 19th, with MainNet launch scheduled for November 11th, 2019, and claims on December 11th, 2019. A total of 148,474 Bitcoin registered – roughly 1% of the entire BTC float - yielding an MWC/BTC ratio of roughly 40.41.
