Frequently Asked Questions

How does this work?

We offer plotting as a service, which means that we'll generate Chia plots (a time-consuming process that requires expensive, high-end SSDs and eats up your computing resources) that you can just downlooad and start farming.

How long does it take?

Since plots are signed against your own Chia keys, we can't sell pre-generated plots. We can only plot them on-demand. Since we have limited capacity for plotting, we follow a simple first-in, first-out policy. Based on the size of the queue ahead of your order, we can estimate how long it will be until we start plotting yours, but the actual time may vary. We are working to expand our capacity to deliver orders sooner.

How big is a plot? How long will it take me to download them?

We plot only standard k=32 plots, which are ~100GB in size. Depending on your internet connection, it may take from 15 minutes to over a day to download each plot.

You'll get the best performance if you use a download manager capable of multi-threaded downloading and automatic resume. There are many options, including:

How do I find my farmer and pool public keys?

You can find your keys by running the command chia keys show, although where the chia binary lives will vary based on your platform.

On Linux or OS X, if you installed from source, the chia binary is probably already on your path.

chia keys show example

On OS X, if you use the GUI, try:

/Applications/Chia.app/Contents/Resources/app.asar.unpacked/daemon/chia keys show

On Windows, if you use the GUI, the binary lives in a folder that varies based on your installed Chia version, so change that (and your username) in the path below:

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\chia-blockchain\app-1.1.6\resources\app.asar.unpacked\daemon\chia.exe keys show

Lastly, as a reminder, never share your private keys with anyone.

Are you affiliated with Chia in any way?

No. Our name only refers to the product we offer, which is Chia plotting.
