Following official pooling protocol release, using madmax, I created 90 new portable plots on a 10 TB HDD on my own computer for a friend of mine.
After that, I downloaded/installed chia GUI on his computer and created a new key for him. I opened chia GUI and let his machine run for a few days to be fully synced. Took almost 4 days to reach +590k. Now both full node and wallet are synced.
I moved the HDD to his computer, go to plots, “add plot directory” select the HDD with 90 new nft plots on, all showed up. In farm section it shows plot count 90 and farming status " farming".
Now here comes the main issue. I want him to farm on an official pool. How can I get these 90 plots connected to a pool like xchpool or any pool?
I added a plot nft and entered pool url. Pool created. However " number of plots" is zero. I don’t know how to add/assign the new portable plots to a pool. I don’t want to create/add new plots, just want to use what already created (90)
I am facing the same issue, i have bought 200 plots the seller has provided me all keys , i have import all keys successfully & SYNC blockchain & wallet. Plots are showing up in wallet but not showing in Pool. Please help to this fix. thanks in advance.
When you buy plots, you should provide the keys to them to create the plots with.
If you bought pre plotted plots where you didn’t supply keys it’s possible they are still farming those plots so a risk.
If your happy with the risk, you would need the mnemonic that controls the whole wallet from them, then add that to your machine.
