I am new in peercoin and trying first time mining of any currency just to see how it works. I installed cgminer but there's an error

Probing for an alive pool Network diff set to 91.5

like that but I am confused that is that are errors or not because its also saying

stratum from pool 0 detect new block

can anyone explain me what's its going I mean working or not if not then why this error is coming if its working then meaning of these messages.


  • What hardware do you want to use to mine? Cgminer hasn't GPU support from the 3.7.2 version Apr 3, 2014 at 12:33
  • Not using any hardware just using my computer I just want to see how it works

  • i think cgminer decide not use your cpu because it's not efficent for sha (the algorithm behind peercoin). For seeing how it works i think you can try cpuminer Apr 3, 2014 at 12:38
  • I think its for litecoin and bitcoin only

  • no, it isn't. bitcoin and peercoin share the same mining algorithm which is sha Apr 3, 2014 at 13:48
