How To Mine The Chia Network ( XCH ) With Your Hard Drives

Chia Network Mining Tutorial

Chia was incorporated in August of 2017 to develop an improved blockchain and smart transaction platform. Chia is the first enterprise-grade digital money. Chia is using the first new Nakamoto consensus algorithm since Bitcoin. Called Proof of Space and Time, it was created by Bram Cohen, the best network protocol engineer alive and the inventor of BitTorrent. Chialisp is Chia’s new smart transaction programming language that is powerful, easy to audit, and secure. Reference smart transactions currently available are: atomic swaps, authorized payees, recoverable wallets, multisig wallets, and rate-limited wallets.


While hard drive mining is not new, Chia Network is a fresh project that is trying to allow users to help secure the network while using less energy-intensive …




  1. This is a nice video, I learn alot watching your videos and it has been very helpful to me. Trading stocks is quite difficult for newbies with low experience due to the high rate of scammers and losses involved. I will always recommend your videos for beginners to have a basic understanding of stocks and cryptocurrency . guys like you are rarely seen, keep it up .

  2. can you tell if it is better with the external ones or even sata? already managed to mine any CHIA?

  3. hello i just bought a second pc these are the specs for second pc..

    motherboard: x570 msi tomahawk

    cpu :amd ryzen 9 3900x

    ram: 64gb ddr4 3600mhz trident royal cl16

    storage: 2X2tb corsair mp 600 + (os)240gb kingston ssd

    graphics card : gt 1030

    its plotting extremely slower compared to my first pc and these are my specs..

    motherboard: b550i gygabyte aorus

    cpu : amd ryzen 7 3700x

    ram: 32 gb g skill neo ddr4 3600mhz cl16

    storage: (os) samsung evo plus 1tb+ corsair mp600 2 tb

    graphics card :amd rx 6700xt 12gb ram

    the ryzen 9 3900x takes double the time to plot the same amount of plots if i set them up.

    also if i set both pc to plot only 1 at max threads(pc 1,16threads) (pc 2 ,24 threads) and max ram (pc 1, 30gb) (pc 2, 60gb). the pc 1 with less threads and ram plots 2x times faster.. any idea how to fix it would be helpful

  4. Just got my first plot. it's mentioning it will take 16 years to have profit. I got a question, should I keep turn on my computer all the time? Once I got Chia coin, can I disconnect my HDD?

  5. Thank you very much for your video … how do I configure the delay in which the new plots begins, in powershell.

  6. Thank you for the video? Would you mind showing us how you connected your ploter and your harvester machines? It would help a lot. 🍻

  7. So here's an update for everyone. There is zero point in going into the Chia network as a miner these days unless you can plot at least 2TB a day. Even then, don't expect to make a return any time soon. I got into the chia mining during prefarm and since the price was released the network growth was catastophic. with a 1TB a day miner, one can only maintain their current likelyhood of rewards. That means if you plot 1TB a day, and your expected win time is 3 years.. it will stay at 3 years no matter how many hard drives you fill in the coming weeks. – consider yourself forwarned. I sank £5K into 2 rigs and factoring in network growth, I am looking at a return of about $400 a month solo, IF I can aquire a 16TB HDD every two weeks. Consider Helium instead.

  8. Dude….you rock! What about the internet speed? Is there an optimal speed or the faster the better?

  9. Thanks for a great video! I am researching but I can't find if it is known what the total number of coins is and what the current number is in circulation?

  10. Great video. I was able to get plots up and running quickly; however, this doesn't look like something that is worth it for the 'little guy' but I'll see how it goes once all my plots are ready.

  11. Hi. I am going to get a hard drive. Is the hard drive with the following specifications good? hdd 10tb WD PURPLE

  12. My other question is, if I have a 10Tra hard drive, and I fold the folder and the Windows folder is separate, with the rest of the free space, if I create a folder, can I use that folder for mining? And I must have a separate hard drive for mining Do I have?

  13. Hi man can i make a ploted hdd and just plug it in to another only mining pc log in with my phase and let it mine?

  14. If using M.2 external adapters, will NVMes perform near the same as if they'd be placed in M.2 slot? Also do you stick them in MOBO or do you have any extension?

  15. Although it’s only been 3 Weeks, I noticed once I started investing and opening separate savings accounts, the money I would have wasted on fast food or Amazon impulse buys has increased my wealth. It’s amazing seeing the amount of money I save each month. Thanks for helping keep the finance topic energetic and easy to focus and understand Felix trades

  16. By the time you get to 100TH, you´ll need 200TH or more. Unless this coin goes into a pool mining (not solo mining) , it will be totally unprofitable unless you are a lucky guy.

  17. You can use 'cd "%LocalAppData%chia-blockchain' instead of 'cd "c:Users[username]AppDataLocalchia-blockchain'

    PS: the %LocalAppData% also works in the explorer

  18. How much did your set up cost? You mentioned going the more professional way, server route for $9k.

  19. Moin,
