I am a veteran crypto investor and blockchain developer, and am fairly new to Burst mining. Am already invested in this with 100k Burst and five figures pumped into mining hardware. I have several Seagate 8TB externals on standby and plotting the first two.
I have a few questions with regards to plotting, help is greatly appreciated
1. Once an 8TB drive has finished plotting, can the plot file be copied and pasted into another similar 8TB drive, and mining can commence immediately on both drives without errors nor overlap?
2. After plotting has completed, can the plotted hard drive be turned off without losing the plot file when it is turned back on again?
3. Are Seagate 8TB external drives known to be slow at both plotting and mining? If yes, would WD external drives be faster?
4. Which is better and faster in both plotting and mining, PMR or SMR drives? I know Seagate ones are SMR.
Once again help would be greatly appreciated, I am glad to be part of the Burst community!
Bought up many Burst assets and have plans to issue my own in the near future. Hence stay tuned..
I strongly believe in giving value to others.
Please kindly comment for the benefit of all newbie Burst miners out there. Sharing is caring!
