So this is my setup:

Download the full Ethereum block chain and updating per second, currently at 438GB and climbing on a 1TB SSD

Created two geth Accounts - Unknown why i need this as i have an Ethereum address that can be deposited to. I only created two Geth Accounts as i was following someones setup and thought why do i need this when i have an address with Coinbase Wallet to deposit to, which i have been using in this setup.

CMD Window 1:
Command =
geth --datadir H:\Ethereum\geth\ --http --miner.etherbase (my ethereum depositing address) --mine

CMD Window 2:
Command =
ethminer -U -P (my ethereum deposting address)

CMD Window 3:

Command =
geth attach

Command =

Result =
currentBlock: 13680944,
highestBlock: 13681062,
knownStates: 0,
pulledStates: 0,
startingBlock: 13678664

Mining seems to be processing:

When the command is initated i get the following:
D:\ethminer\bin>ethminer --farm-recheck 150 -U -P (my ethereum coinbase wallet address for deposits)

ethminer 0.18.0

Though after a short time says the following:

i 03:09:16 <unknown> Disconnected from
i 03:09:16 <unknown> No connection. Suspend mining ...
i 03:09:16 <unknown> Selected pool :0

and goes back to the command prompt, am i doing something wrong?

Also the mining payout to the Ethereum address ive specified, what does it have to reach? I cant tell if this is working correctly, and why the shutdown of mining abruptly?

All i want to do is have the entire chain, and mine the chain in Realtime. Im testing using one GTX 1650 at the moment, though have more GPU`s available once the software side of things is correctly setup.

I dont want to mine random pools, just my own, and only using GETh and the Ethereum Blockchain.

Latest nVidia and CUDA Drivers are installed.

Any help appreciated.

Ive attached a pic of all three cmd instances.

I have a batch file which runs the following:






ethminer.exe --farm-recheck 200 -U -P <My Ethereum Coinbase Wallet>

While I know what it is you showing us, no idea how to fix it. There got to be someone here that can give you some info, so consider this a bump.
