Launch solod and sync blockchain. Letting the daemon sync from 0 will take several hours and require a couple restarts. Your mileage will vary depending on factors such as connection and hardware. We are still working to improve a full blockchain sync. For faster syncing we recommend importing the blockchain snapshot.
Remove contents of C:\ProgramData\solo\ extract contents of snapshot.zip to the same directory.
Note that if this is your first time to sync or you use a custom path you will not have these directories. Launching solod will create them or they can be created manually. Also, for Windows users C:\ProgramData is a hidden folder by default, it can be accessed by showing hidden folders or by typing %programdata%\solo into the address line of file explorer or the run command (windows key + r).
After you are fully in sync with the blockchain you can launch solo-wallet-cli.exe (needs expanding on + screenshots)
(mining-threads 0 will use an //autodetect// algorithm to set threads). The user should set the desired # of threads after finding the best setting. For large core/thread count, a manual test at increasing thread count may give better performance, in some cases.)
You can really help network stability, by becoming a full node - by port forwarding TCP port 22423 to your node. If you run more than 1 node, the following additional flags added to your mining .bat are recommended:
