[FAQ] How do I solo mine Feathercoin?
It is not recommenced to try mining solo unless you have a lot of hashing power like 8x GTX1070 or something in this ballpark otherwise its very unlikely that you will ever mine a block by yourself and yo may wait long periods without gaining a block.
All you need is:
Your Feathercoin wallet (feathercoin-qt.exe) fully synced
A feathercoin.conf file in the data folder of the feathercoin wallet with this contents(wherever you installed feathercoin\data\feathercoin.conf):
you have to have the wallet running while mining!
restart the wallet after you have created this file:
server=1 rpcuser=user rpcpassword=pass rpcallowip=0.0.0.0 rpcport=9337 port=9336
A fairly recent version of ccminer (rename .exe file to ccminer.exe (i didnt test others))
i am using this one (ccminer_cuda75.exe):
and a .bat /.cmd file with following content:
ccminer.exe -a neoscrypt -i 22 -o 127.0.0.1:9337 -u user -p pass pause
The screen should look like this:

@AcidD just collected all my files… it may help cause since im registered in this forum the question on how to solo mine raises sometimes…
@shadow1117 Thanks again, a lot of people were asking if it could be done.
sorry but this no longer work with the latest wallet 0.16.1.
Miner got this answer from the wallet:
JSON-RPC call failed: Method not found
The latest versions of the wallet don’t have a get_work method anymore. :(
You’d need to use getblocktemplate.
I’m not sure if there are any miners supporting it.
I’ve seen messages, that cudaminer does not support getblocktemplate, so the only possibility is stratum, which requires a pool.
The missing get_work call has never been reported as an issue up to now.
A workaround is to set up a private pool, e.g. p2pool and use the stratum protocol.
It’s overhead, but it is the same as direct solo mining.
