there's low cryptocurrency news and investing crypto slow with more crypto gains tonight we got a special coin for everyone and if you haven't heard about it it's kind of a mystery it's cold Raven coin never heard of it I guess this coin launched in January with a real grassroots campaign no pre mind no talk of exchanges no talk of price and there's also some news on the street that it is the overstockcom CEO secret project but what's kind of cool about Raven coin is the fact that it's not on bit screener or coin market cap and it's not on any exchanges so this is kind of an interesting coin because this is your chance to mine a coin that is not for sale it's kind of unknown now you say that's risky yes but it's also the potential for some really good profits there's a total underground circuit of people that specifically try to mind coins that do not have listings on any exchanges on they're just not for sale now the exciting part about the Raven coin the block reward is 5,000 and there's a new block every minute so it's pretty pretty pretty big I think there's about 22,000 miners from what I've heard on this there's been no marketing this coin really is a mystery but tonight I'm going to show you how easy this is to get going on a new coin so we're gonna use the GIMP pull and the Raven coin he uses that this new X 16 R script well CC miner 2 to 4 does not support this but you can always figure out what people are using by clicking on it and then you can kind of look at the miners and click on the script so we've got CC minor 2 to 5 cc minor enemy never heard of that before so I'm actually gonna go with CC minor 2 to 5 so that's the new release so I'm going to type CC minor two point two point five okay release and let's see C minor alright alright so still looking on Google for cc minor two-five go ahead and follow this because this was just posted and it says github 2 2 to 5 looks good okay so we're here so let's go ahead and Mark that and okay and let's go ahead and download this puppy 2 to 5 so we're gonna download it to our desktop 15 okay looks good and we're gonna create a new folder called CC minor 2 2 2 5 go ahead and pop that in there it's a 7-zip so we'll extract it looks good delete that all right so now I've got CC 1 or 2 2 to 5 now to stay organized I typically put all my CC minors in a specific location on my drive so let's go to see Program Files mining CC minor this is the new 2 2 to 5 okay and then of course supernova 3 I'd read me lalala so this is pretty standard now we need a wallet address don't want to forget about that so let's go ahead and go back to the Raven coin site and let's see what we got ok download binary release okay so that is let's go ahead and copy that link I'm trying to keep all these links here so I can put them for you in the video I'm gonna download the wallets and let's see here looking for the primary release Mac Windows right so Raven QT alright and go ahead and Mark that that's the Raven QT I'm downloading the full node version of this okay so let's go ahead and download back to the desktop again now this looks to be just an executable QT so probably what I'm gonna do is I'll place this in my Program Files folder so I've got the Raven wallet QT and let's go ahead and place that somewhere where you can be organized I keep a mining folder so I'm gonna create a new folder called Raven let's see if I spell that correctly Raven : all right Eitan raven point all right so now then I create a folder called wallets and I'm gonna paste him there so I'm pasting the Raven QT here now what I usually do is I'll just send a shortcut to my desktop to actually launch that so that it's easy send to desktop alright so now I've got a shortcut to the Raven wallet Raven coin wallet okay alright I'm gonna go ahead and put that in my wallets and I am gonna run the wallet see what happens alright the app roaming data folder that's usually where coin cuties always install so and if you ever need to get to the app data folder just go get the windows key type % app data shoot % AppData % so you're there you can see I got some other wallets in there so that's the default location which is completely fine by me and then it starts to load and now it says 9 weeks behind so what happens is when you download a core wallet you always have to let it sink so we'll go ahead oh we're gonna allow this through the firewall okay and we should start syncing up want to look for activity always in the corner of your wallet and the headers will sync first and then the blockchain will come in now this coins been around for about a month so you know it's hopefully should sync up pretty fast but anyways while that's sinking we're gonna go ahead and go back to our CC 1 or 2 to 5 and so you see minor 2 to 5 and actually let's go back to the 2 to 5 because I do like to get the exact oops I do like to put the exact so yeah I like to name it exact so I'm gonna rename that – 2 – 5 X 24 – 2 5 I don't like to have dots in my pass or dashes or special characters so ok now what we need to do is we need to configure the run me dot bat so this is pretty simple we're gonna use yeah so back to getting back to the GIMP wallet the pools so basically – Oh stratum tcp imp port how do you find the port well you look at the alga that you're using in this case we're doing the x16 our so 36 36 is our port they also give an optional port just in case and then you got your options and you've got to put your wallet address in well I already it started kind of a run adopt bat here and I'll save this as links so I'll have all these links in the description down below for you guys so desktop so I'm going to close that out and I'm gonna build my run me dot bat file so CC minor now I typically will use a little trick I go dot dot well I won't do it this time cause I don't want to confuse people so CC minor 64 so what this does is this is the executable part of the file so if we go back we see cc1 or 64 okay and let's go ahead and get that over there and this over here so – a well let's try this we don't want try this I want x16 our so we're going to replace the – a switch with x16 our and user name is your wallet address – P is blank stats intensity is 25 I'm just gonna get rid of that this so I've got the coin specified I've got the intensity specified I need to get my wallet address the port is 36 36 so 36 36 Stratham you know okay everything looks good x16 RCC minor 64 so basically I need to wait for my Raven wallet to sync so that I can get an address so that I can start mining these coins so I'm gonna stop the video right here I'm gonna allow the wallet to sync and then it'll continue okay so I let this thing run for a while and it just wasn't syncing the key is to look down in the corner to see if you have active connections see how it says I have six active connections well it wasn't picking up right away so I had to add some IP addresses they're called add notes the noser would allow you to download the blockchain of people running full node wallets so what does that mean you go to debug and then you click on console and then what you do is you want to head and highlight this entire line copy and you want to add these and hit enter let's see how it added it to it so basically you're adding these nodes to the wallet and then you want to see then if you can get some connections so sometimes it just won't sync other times it syncs really fast so if not you have to look up nodes and that's always been inherit with QT wallets to do that so just give it a little time mine took about a half an hour to sync so we now have a wallet a couple things to keep in mind you want to encrypt your wallet with a strong passphrase you know and you want to make sure you write that down or you'll lose your coins forever so now I'm gonna click on receive and I'm gonna say slow bot Raven rvn okay then I'm gonna hit request payment that should generate an address so boom I have an address so I'm gonna hit copy address alright so now that I have the address I can go ahead and finish the Remini dot bat file now typically you're gonna edit this as a text file and then you will save it as a dot bat file so back to our dot bat file so we had everything in here – you wallet address so I'm going to paste my wallet address in here no password D DNR whoops that's Denarius our VN is the Raven point and we're gonna start with I'm gonna actually change my intensity to Auto which is zero so I'm gonna hit save save as bat file Romi dot run I'm gonna call this Raven coin and then we're gonna say imp and then we're gonna say all workers because I'm not gonna specify a device so and then dot bat it could be whatever you want to call it but ultimately this is the file that activates the CC miner main file to run so hit save so CC minor 64 x16 our stratum the correct port number 36 36 which let's make sure our even coin yeah yeah pull Ravin coin let's try that again I'll tell you what these sites sometimes driving me bonkers how they don't show up in Google anyways I've got the IMP address so silly alright let's go back to you so we should be all set up to start mining I wanted to verify the x16 are 36 36 and it looks good so I'm gonna go ahead and hit save now what you need to do is move this into the folder where you saved your CC miner two to five so let's go back here C Drive my mining folder 2 2 2 5 and I'm gonna paste this continue perfect I'm gonna go ahead and create a desktop shortcut and let's see what happens and we should be good to run I don't like the word shortcut my shortcuts so there we go and if it works properly it should start hashing if not it's gonna flash and dump 3gp is I got three cards x16 are and let's see what we do so for this demonstration I got to 1080 is and 110 880 and we're gonna see what happens PTC donation address yeah here there is six three six so it's stalled it's okay gotta give it a little time GPU intensity set to 20 now the reason why I use intensity auto a lot of times is I just kind of like to get a baseline if your intensity is too high it will actually run out of memory because it tries to address too many cuda threads at one time so a lot of people don't understand intensity intensity is actually how often your computer is talking to the pool so if you have a really really fast computer like an ASIC it doesn't you don't need to talk to it as long because your solutions to the problems are being presented to your computer are going to be very fast so and then difficulty is lower that means that your your computer is going to communicate you know more frequently now the next question is how can you see what's happening well with him since there is no sign up you actually just put your wallet address in and you can see the status of what's going on so you go back to the int pool click on wallet you put your wallet in hit enter and as you can see I have a spike which means i'm passioned so we're gonna let this run and we'll see what kind of coins we collect now so cool things about Raven coin the reward is pretty massive it's 5000 per block and that's every minute I have no idea what the price is gonna be like I said watch some of the videos there's a meet-up and a couple other things but overall it's an interesting coin and probably wouldn't hurt to have a couple thousand in your portfolio so hope you enjoyed this video like subscribe comment if you have any problems I'll try to answer questions and that is tonight's video this is crypto slow if you're not talking gains then we're not talking
