Hi. I was thinking for the people who turn on and off the computers and have chia mining as something they do when computer is on maybe it would be a good idea to have a feature that allowed users to pause plotting? This way we would increase adoption with these types of users.
Or if your computer crashes or get shut down unexpectedly being able to continue where you left off… I got the impression when I asked that this was a difficult feature to build but it would be nice and I agree with you…
I’m fairly certain I saw Bram/Gene comment that they will eventually make this possible, their focus for now though is launching transactions and then adding support for pools.
I also heard that resuming plots will be a feature in the future from the Chia Team
Yep, it’s coming. Just gotta be patient as it’s priority is behind transactions
Turns out you can kinda pause plotting in Windows a variety of different ways. But you can’t turn the computer off, just sleep the whole PC or suspend the process.
