SoundMoneyCoin Miner Python

SoundMoneyCoin CLI miner. Requires an Ethereum node to connect to. It should work with a geth light node. Run geth with rpc enabled:

$ geth --syncmode light --rpc

It might take a while for geth to fully sync. You also need to create a wallet and unlock it. The address of that wallet needs to be entered into config.ini. Don't forget to send a little bit of ETH to the wallet for transaction fees.

Fair Mining

You can configure this miner to mine at a rapid pace. Yes, this will get you a lot of SOV - but it will also diminish the value of SOV besides clogging the Ethereum network. We keeping the default of 1 transaction per 5 minutes. Remember, you'll be better off holding 1 SOV that's worth $10,000 than holding 10,000 SOV that are worth $0 because of your actions.

Installation

$ git clone https://github.com/soundmoneycoin/sovminer-python/
$ cd sovminer-python
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ cp config.ini.example config.ini

Edit the config file to match your environment.

Usage
