From my understanding, when you generate plots by default, they’re somehow tied to your private or public key that you have set in your Chia keys/wallet. It seems you can override this behavior by supplying
chia create plots --farmer_public_key XXX --pool_public_key XXX with the person you’re generating plots for. Is that true or false?
I currently have plots made for myself (I presume. I ran
chia plots create without supplying farmer or pool public key.) Are these plots somehow tied to my Chia private key or wallet? Are they only farmable by me?
I am currently farming those plots but I noticed the Farmer application itself has a “Rewards Address”. How does this play with everything? For example, if I gave a friend my plots and they ran it on their own Chia Farmer, but changed the “Rewards Address” to point to their public address, would they be able to use my plots to farm Chia (assuming I deleted the plots from my computer locally) or would they not even be able to use the plots?
I ask this because I’m generating plots for my brother and before I start generating the plots (which could take over a month,) I want to be able to farm those plots.
The issue: I’m afraid that if I just generate them without supplying farmer & pool public keys, he won’t be able to farm them. My second fear is that if I were to supply the farmer & pool public keys, that I somehow won’t be able to farm them in the meantime due to a mismatching of the plot-generated keys and my Chia private and public keys stored in
chia keys /
chia wallet. If that were the case, would those plots would be unfarmable until he took the hard drives to his computer at home and started farming them there?
