@dreamboy334 At the moment the pool is about 5.8PB - 5,800TB - 5,800,000GB. You have 100GB, so your chance of winning a block is approximately 100/580,000,000. The odds are low, but my small miners have won blocks. Your 100GB will get some good times where even if you don't win you'll get a good payout, or you could win, or on the other hand you won't have a Deadline that meets the threshold to submit the nonce - it varies, it's a lottery - the more space, the more tickets, the more chance of winning something.
@BurstL0rd Show them this website if they are interested: https://web.burst-team.us. The information there is perhaps not the simplest to digest for non-crypto people, but it is very informative and enticing.
Also, if they have heard about Bitcoin, just explain that it uses so much power to mine that it is becoming a global environmental threat, and that Burst is part of the solution.
Burst mining hardly costs you a penny, and especially not if you use the same PC you are using anyway, unlike traditional PoW mining. There is really no drawback, as your "mining equipment" (HDDs) can be used for other things or even sold if you regret mining Burst (but you won't).
Show them promo video #1 (non-technical):
Nothing to worry about, after initial blockchain download there will not be much bandwith used.
But you do not even have to run a full node to mine on a pool.
Just the mining software.
Mining software traffic is very low.
It has to ask the pool for new block from time to time. Guess default is 1-2 seconds ... but it is adjustable every 15 sec would be ok, too.
And mining software will send the mining results back to pool.
You have to pay Apple to be able to develop a app there, also they are deciding witch apps get available on their sales platform. So no, i guess not in near future ...
But you can simply open the mobile-online wallet in your browser on iphone: https://mwallet.burst-team.us:8125/index.html
Glad to hear you have got your mining working! I turn my mining off at night as well, but wish I could keep it on all the time.
The value of Burst can almost only move upwards at this point the way I see it. Bitcoin's price increase following the coming halving event has driven the price of altcoins such as Burst down, but it is likely that money will flow back to the altcoin markets after the halving - AND - Burstcoin has a lot of development and improvements coming up in addition to having a devoted dev team. Finally, Burst offers a lot of things that most other coins do not. All in all I have a bullish outlook for this coin/technology.
