    Utilizing 40% to 60% of your CPU power to mine for Gapcoin would be recommended whilst your using your PC during the day. Utilizing upwards of 80% CPU power to mine Gapcoin overnight (or whislt your PC is not in use) is recommended, where possible.

    If you are unsure of how many CPU's (or Threads) your PC has then you could download CPU-Z http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

    For example, if you have 2 CPU cores with 4 CPU threads then setting the mining command setgenerate true 2 will mine with 50% of your computers CPU power.

    To stop mining for Gapcoin in the wallet type setgenerate false You can confirm that you are mining by entering the command getprimespersec which will return a value other than 0.

    Note that you need to have the complete Gapcoin blockchain downloaded before you start the mining process.

    At the current network difficulty of around 21 to 22 the average PC should be able to mine at least one Gapcoin block within 24 to 48 hours. You can check the current network difficulty by typing getdifficulty at the command prompt. If / when you find a block it will be automatically credited in your wallet.

    Good luck with finding your first Gapcoin block!
