How to mine GlobalBoost-Y Solo Mining and Pool Currently CPU Mining Only
1. Download one of the Awesome Wallets
2. Extract the files from the zip file and run the GlobalBoost-Y.exe
3. Let the wallet sync before you start mining. This is pointed out due to some anxious miners we have had.
4. Solo Mining: Click the Mining Button and Select how many threads (CPU’s) you want to use. Click the Start Mining Button in the bottom right hand corner of the wallet. YOUR SOLO MINING!!!
5. Pool Mining: You will need to make the switch to the Pool Mining selection in the wallet.
6. Download the Minerd version below that matches the wallet you downloaded (Windows or MAC). You will need to put the minerd files in the same folder as the GlobalBoost-Y.exe file. This has to be done to pool mine in the wallet.

7. Pick one of the pools below and make an account where you like. We will have more coming online soon and the ANN will be updated accordingly.
http://bsty.altmine.net (P2P Pool-Payout info below no Account Necessary)
Payout is PPLNS. The payouts are based on the number of shares (and its difficulty) over a 24h window, or the last 3 blocks found by the pool. Whatever comes first. The predicted payouts will look very small at first but it will actually be more than other pools over time, unless everyone stops mining.
8. Fill in the information from the Getting started on the mining pools site. Below is the altpooler example as they do not have a help page.
server : stratum+tcp://stratum-eu.altmine.net
username: your BSTY address
threads: 1 or more
You should now be pool mining.
