I need approximately 100 Bitcoin Testnet to run an experiment on the lightning network.

Any suggestion on how to run CPU mining? Should I use cgminer? Make any sense to perform solo mining on testnet?

Currently I am running a full testnet node with bitcoind on a linux environment.

  • Maybe you can find a faucet? Here is an older but probably still appropriate answer: bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/29791/… – Eddie Dunn Mar 13 at 16:35

    You will have to wait until the difficulty is reset to 1, and even then, you might not be able to win a block with the flood of other blocks coming in. – JBaczuk Mar 14 at 15:50
