So You downloaded and installed the MintCoin Wallet?

Great the next step is to get the blockchain synced so that your wallet is are up to date and that you can recieve MintCoin (MINT). 

There are at the moment two options do this

1. Let the wallet sync by itself

Just start the wallet and let it sync the blockchain.

If you choose this option be aware that MintCoin is an "old" coin, and has a large blockchain. The fastes sync noted by one of our community members was around 11 days.

2. Download the bootstrap and copy it in your MintCoin directory

We distribute monthly snapshots of our blockchain throught torrent.just follow the published at RESOURCES -> MintCoin BootStrap Torrent

The snapshot is taken from one of the MintCoin dev's Personal Wallet.

We recommend that you only download the torrentfile throug this site and not by links handed over by other sources


Bootstrap location


This should open your favourite Torrent Downloader just let it run until you recieved the complete file.

We also appreciate that you keep "seeding" this file in your Torrent Client for 45 days to support the other MintCoin users that downloads the bootstrap.

Don't worry the download will be automaticly be invalid after 45 days when a new a bootstrap is published


Make sure that the MintCoin wallet is not running

Now open the installation directory of MintCoin.

Always backup your wallet.dat file to a safe location before proceeding overwriting files.

The location of the bootstrap is depending of your Operating system.

How can You use MintCoin?

You can keep you MintCoin on the exchange and make some money by speculating the trick here is buy in low en sell High.

Another option is to HOLD or HODL. Meaning that you transfer the funds to your MintCoin Wallet where they need to mature for 20 days.

After this period the "Minting process" will start rewarding users that hold MintCoin in their wallet for more the 20 days.

To get your minting rewards open the wallet every 20 days and let the wallet synchronize with the blockchain. When it is synchronized it will start to Mint.

You do NOT need to keep the wallet open 24/7 to be able to get these rewards.
