        for stratum servers, use `stratum+tcp://<host>:<port>`

        Query string
  -I int
        Intensity (default 28)

    Make sure siad is running

  • What is siad?

    Check the sia documentation

  • I don't know how to set up siad or the sia UI wallet, how do I do that?

    Check the sia documentation.

  • You have to help me set up mining SIA

    No I don't

  • Can you log in on my machine to configure my mining setup?


  • I don't know how to get it working, can you help me?

    I get this question at least once a day. Seriously, you can not expect me to set up and support everyone's mining equipment.

  • I don't know how to get it working, can you help me please please please ?

    Everyone has his price, make me an offer I can't refuse so I don't have to continue answering no to this question.
