Mining ada procedure

hi i have some cardano coin ADA in Bitrrex. i would like begin to mining this coin.
could you explain me how do it?
I read something about proof of stake but dont understand how is posible minig
Thanks from Spain


Hola Diego! ADA can’t be mined as it is not a Proof-of Work consensus, however much better, it can be staked…
What does it mean? Basically, the transaction confirmations are not done with hardware but with your already owned ADA. You might find this link (scroll down to Proof of Stake and Minting) interesting about Cardano PoS. Here is another cool explanation about PoS.

Here is a detailed explanation of the Ouroboros Proof-of-Stake algorithm, the most important part of the protocol.

It supports the network in a decentralised fashion, you need to keep your Daedalus wallet online for it to work. As a reward, you get a % of your already owned coins. Large stakeholders can in addition earn transaction fees. The Reward Era will start in Q2 2018 as you can see on the roadmap


thanks so much. cosmosx.
then the first is dowload the wallet daedalus but still arent posible in linux. Its correct?

De nada. Unfortunately I don’t know about Linux, but based on the Linux icon on the Daedalus download page, it’s probably only a matter of weeks…

I readed about proof of stake in cardano but is complicate of understand for me. Its posible indicate the steps to do for participate in the proyect.
I have adas in bittrex. The next is dowloads daedalus and withdrawals the adas of bitrrexx to my wallet and then what ???

It is still early for the details we don’t know much at this point, as mentioned in my first comment the Reward Era will start in April 2018.

Do you need a step-by-step instructions on how to send your ADA from Bittrex to Daedalus?
Once you’ve transferred your ADA to Daedalus, there is nothing more to do apart from waiting until April 2018 :slight_smile: Patience my friend, patience.


then wait till q2 2018. That is when staking gets activated.

Then wait. Be water my friend jajajajaj


Unless you are an active trader, its never a good idea to leave your currency on the exchanges. They can be hacked, shut down, etc. etc.


Hi CosmosX, does the Proof of stage generates new ADA or it is paid by the user as a transaction fees. If it generates new ADA, what happens when the limit is reached?

PoS will not generate new ADA, but stakers will receive transaction fees.

Hello @Beskus,

Just saw your message. Did you transfer your ADA from Bittrex to your Daedalus? Have you created a wallet in Daedalus and stored your secret words on 2 sheets of paper (one for you and another for back-up)?

Thank you for the kind message. I am not from the Cardano team (I wish), just a regular user helping others :slight_smile: there are many people here on this forum that are technically way better than me
Cheers mate


Any news on a how to stake ADA in practice, and take part to the POS consensus?

This is planned to start later this year and will be done via your wallet (all official and some other wallets). If you’re interested in the details you could start reading here:

Thanks for the quick answer. There is something I don’t understand, currently how does the Cardano blockchain works? Is it not working with POS? If it is working with Pos who actually stakes and how?

(Note that the question was not necessarily how to join a stake pool. But it would be nice to have a tutorial, both to stake directly and to join a stake pool, and possibly also how to setup a pool).
