Secure The Network and Earn SEN Current Block Reward: 999 SEN

To mine SEN, there are a few options for you to choose from. Mine solo, decentralize and help secure the network, try your luck (and your hashpower) finding blocks to earn the full block reward for every block mined.

Alternatively, combine your hashpower with others, secure the network, and connect to our mining pool to earn SEN for every valid share submitted based on the difficulty level of shares submitted. Payouts are based on PPS, paid every 24hrs with 0% in pool fees.

GUI Wallet Miner

Download our GUI Wallet and start passively mining using your CPU and GPU right from your desktop. See the the live stats of your hardware right from the graphical interface.

Command Line Miner

For more control, dedicated GPUs, or to run multiple workers (rigs), the command line tools may be more your pace. Run a local network node and mine solo or join our pool and use our miner dashboard to see how your workers are performing.

Miner

Under the “Miner” tab, you can choose to start the miner in “Local Daemon” mode for solo mining (although finding blocks at the current difficulty using your CPU and desktop GPU is unlikely), or automatically connect to our Pool by selecting “Pool Server” before starting the miner. For Pool mining, a special “Mining Pool Payout” wallet address will be created and used to authenticate to the pool server. This is the address your payouts will be sent to once you’ve reached the minimum payout threshold.

Builds are for Linux, Windows and MacOS include:

sentientd – the daemon executable that connects the network, maintains a local version of the blockchain and controls your local wallet.

sentientc – the command-line tool that nicely wraps the RESTful API exposed by sentientd and allows you to query the status of the blockchain and control your local wallet.

sentient-miner – the command line miner. To find more about how to run the latest version please read this Medium article.

Running a Local Node (Daemon)

Once you’ve downloaded the ZIP archive, unpack and put it in your preferred location. You can run it in the foreground by simply executing:

sentientd

with no parameters, or specify the data location like so:

sentientd -d ~/sentient/data

This will start your full node, connect to the mainnet, discover peer nodes from trusted gateways, and start downloading the blockchain from one of the trusted peers.

The blockchain download might take a while to complete. You can track its progress by executing the following command from the CLI:

sentientc consensus

Initializing the wallet

The wallet is managed by sentientd, and is encrypted on disk by default. The wallet is located in the data directory of your daemon.

To initialize the wallet, run the following CLI command:

sentientc wallet init -p

This will securely generate a new random seed and ask you for a wallet password to encrypt the seed. Enter the password and back up the seed in a secure location.

Now, unlock the wallet:

sentientc wallet unlock

Follow the prompts and your wallet will be unlocked. To see the status of your wallet:

sentientc wallet

Troubleshooting the Daemon

If you run into issues with the sentientd, you can try restarting it with a different data directory. It is dangerous to remove the existing data directory unless you are absolutely certain that your seed is backed up correctly.

You can check your seed using the CLI:

sentientc wallet seeds

NOTE: if an instance of sentientd is already running on the default port :9910, you can start Sentient UI and it will automatically connect to the already-running daemon.

Start Mining

Find the latest instructions on how to run our command line miner, mining solo against the daemon you just started or against the pool by reading this Medium article.

GitHub Repository

See all our latest open source releases and more documentation on the Consensus GitHub Project Repo.

If you downloaded a wallet before August 4th, you will have to wipe any trace of these files from your computer in order for the new wallet to connect to the network. This includes all data directories.
