UNSTAKED SMARTPHONE MINING

  • Many people don’t have access to a computer, let alone the resources to leave them on 24/7
  • What they often do have, is an Android smartphone (and/or tablet).
  • For those people, BiblePay has a special feature: Unstaked Smartphone Mining
  • NO STAKING IS REQUIRED!

You will have the BiblePay Mobile Wallet and BOINC installed on your phone. Anytime your phone is connected to a charger it will contribute to Rosetta@home and you will be rewarded BBP. Unstaked accounts are only valid as long as you only have Android devices tied to that account.

4. Download the BiblePay Wallet from the Android Play Store or create a Paper Wallet

In order to participate in our Unstaked Mining Project, you need a BBP-address. You can use any address you want, but since this guide presumes you don’t own a computer, we will show how to create your own address with your Android phone (i) or with a Paper Wallet (ii).

(i) You can find the Android BiblePay Wallet here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.biblepaywallet

  • Install the wallet by following the on-screen directions.
  • Create a Receive Address by clicking the ‘receive’ button and copy this address for later use.

(ii) Alternatively, you can create a Paper Wallet. In order to do that,

  • To create a Biblepay Paper Wallet, go to https://biblepaywallet.github.io/
  • You will be able to generate a unique Paper Wallet by moving your mouse around or typing randomly on your keyboard.

  • When the Paper Wallet is generated, you will receive a PUBLIC and a PRIVATE key. You should keep the PRIVATE key safe, and never show it to anyone.
  • You can print out your Paper Wallet, put it on a USB-stick, or save it in a Secure Cloud (like Dropbox). You can also add a passphrase to the Wallet if you’d like.
  • You can share the PUBLIC key safely with anyone you want (in this example, the public key is: BAeMZ7j8X1oXbhAfSUrBN9JD64D4RBSrLT
  • You can always import a Paper Wallet into your Android Wallet by scanning the QR-code. Alternatively, you can import it in the standard walllet by using the command: importprivkey “PRIVATEKEY

5. Register your account as UNBANKED on pool.biblepay.org

  • In order to associate the BOINC on your smartphone with a Biblepay public key, you first need to set up a Biblepay account.
  • Go to https://pool.biblepay.org and there will be a login prompt
  • Click on the ‘Register’ button

  • Fill in your User Name, Password and Email
  • Click on the ‘Register’ button
  • A box will appear that says ‘Succesfully Registered’
  • Go to the following menu: Account > Associate Unbanked CPID.

  • Fill in the Android Wallet Address (or any other BBP-Address that you would like to use).
  • Use your Rosetta@home E-Mail Address and Password to link your Biblepay Wallet Address to your Rosetta@home account.

  • You are now ready to receive rewards in BBP!

  • If you want to keep track of your CPID statistics, you can add it under ‘Account > Account Settings’ and the pool will show them.
  • It can take 1-2 days before your first payment after you solved your first task with Rosetta@home. After that, you will get a daily payment.
