    Replot and only chia is mineable and it takes a long time to plot.

    The imineblocks guy on youtube says 6hrs for a 100Gb plot if you use an ssd but nearer 20Hrs if mechanical...thats about 73 plots per 8Tb drive...1460 hrs 2 months.....will be 2 years till i am plotted lol....multiple computers required

    Also each 100Gb plot uses about 1.5Tb of writes...thats a lot of wear on the ssd so will be using mechanical for sure.

    thanks for the heads up though...you did the same with BHD...which i would have done well with if i had sold when it was £40 a coin lol....

    He waited two weeks after mainnet launched to mention it. He has been active in the chia community for months and got plotting done and ready for mainnet :p
