- What can I do with Levitate coins?
You can mine LVT through a mining pool with special mining software such as cpuminer and cgminer. You can use the Levitate Mining Pool at http://184.108.40.206/ . If you need more information on pool mining, read along below.
As soon as Levitate is listed on an exchange, you will be able to trade and buy Levitate coins.
We will also conduct promotions and distribute Levitate coins for free. Keep an eye on the LVT Promotions!
First, download, install and start your wallet at least one time and close it. Open the levitate.conf file that is included in the .zip file with a basic text editor and change the username and password as you wish.
Next, in Windows, click Start or go to the Windows 8 Search charm, type %appdata% , and select the Roaming folder. There you will find the Levitate folder in which you put the levitate.conf file.
In Linux, you put the levitate.conf file in the folder where you find the levitated file.
In iOS go to Finder, click Menu Go and select option Go to folder and there you type: ~/Library/Application Support/Levitate/ and then you click Go. Place the file in this folder.
If you like to mine with your CPU (Computer Processor) do this:
Download the right cpuminer for your computer, you can do so by clicking here. Extract the software on your computer and read the Readme.txt that is included. Create a new start.bat file (you can do this with a basic notepad) in your cpuminer folder and type a command line in it like this:
cpuminer-aes-sse42.exe -t 5 --cpu-priority=0 -a scrypt --url stratum+tcp://levitatepool.org:3008 -u LPfdNvenkLcwYGSTKnX75AJ5DMwZv9nibK -p c=LVT
- Make sure to set the cpu characteristics like "cpuminer-aes-sse42.exe" according to your own cpu (read the information in the Readme.txt that comes with the cpuminer software)
- Replace the -t value with the number of cpu threads/cores your processor has, or better put it at least 1 lower so your computer keeps running OK. In example, if you have a 2 threads or 2 cores processor, set -t 1
- Replace the LVT address in the line above with your own LVT address
Once you have created the start.bat with your own tailored command-line in it, save it and doubleclick it to start mining. Your virusscanner and firewall will probably block or quarantine your cpuminer, so you need to add the miner to the trusted programs, or set the mining folder as a scanning exemption. Once your miner is up and running, always keep an eye on your cpu temperature when mining, for instance by using a program like Core Temp: https://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
If you like to mine with your GPU (Graphics Card) do this:
Download the mining software cgminer-3.7.2 for you computer. If you have windows, you can dowload by clicking here. Extract the zipfile on your computer and edit the START-MINING-LVT.bat file with notepad. Change the LVT address to your own address, save and close the file. Doubleclick START-MINING-LVT.bat to start mining. If you like, you can finetune the settings by consulting the Readme.txt and GPU-readme.txt that are included. Always monitor the temperature of your GPU and do not set the difficulty too high.
For now, just get as many coins as you can and rack&stack them safely. We will get Levitate on a nice exchange so you can start trading, take off and Levitate.
