I am running "./bitcoind -daemon -gen" in my machine . Is it solo mining ? If so, what does it take to create 1 bitcoin ? When i run "./bitcoind getbalance" it is always 0.00000 . "./bitecoind getmininginfo" results in: { "blocks" : 319203, "currentblocksize" : 1000, "currentblocktx" : 0, "difficulty" : 68.59413778, "errors" : "", "generate" : true, "genproclimit" : -1, "hashespersec" : 1447, "networkhashps" : 2298081699, "pooledtx" : 0, "testnet" : false }

Am i on right way ? If so, what does it take to create 1 coin ? Also, when i create a coin, how to send it to my address ? will it be automatically ?

    Your setup is perfect. All you need is a time machine to go back to 2010 and you will be set. – RentFree Apr 1 '14 at 13:57

Yes it's solo mining, and the difficulty is so large that you will never be able to find a block before the mining pools do. You have a better chance at winning a lottery than mining a block before big pools do.

So you will most likely never get any coins.
