I follow this tutorial here to run a node

https://hackmd.aepps.com/EYdgDAHALDCcC0ATAbLZ8oDMoCZ4EMJY9MQBTAVimTB2XxAGYg==?view

what do I need to do to be mining now?

Is there an additional command after i started the node?

Thanks

Why is it useless? i really don’t understand

There are two things:

How many graphs you can make per second

How many solutions you can make per second

Usually a fast CPU makes 1 graph every 2 seconds

Usually a fast GPU (1080ti for reference) can make 6.5 graphs per second with an optimized miner (stock miner does about 3 per second)

You usually find a solution every 100 graphs (approximated value)

Then you would need about 350,000 solutions and a lot of luck to find a block

if you do the math that is at least 22 days to be lucky enough to find 1 block with gpu and about 286 days to find one using cpu mining.

So, you are better off using a mining pool that pays you per a share of the work.
