Frequently Asked Questions

Have any questions about the Chia blockchain, Chia farming or Chia plotting that are not already answered then feel free to send us an email.

Linux and MacOS

To find your farmer and pool keys on Linux or MacOS you can use the following command.
chia keys show | grep 'Pool\|Farmer'


Windows

Finding your farmer and pool keys on Windows is a bit trickier.

  1. Open the Command Prompt Win+X by going to Start and typing cmd and pressing enter.
  2. Paste the following command in the line %APPDATA%/../Local/chia-blockchain/app-1.1.2/resources/app.asar.unpacked/daemon/chia.exe keys show
  3. Never share your private keys, only public keys are safe to be shared. You will find your keys in the output.
  4. If you got an error on the first line you might be on an other version of chia application.
    1. To figure out which version you need type cd %APPDATA%/../Local/chia-blockchain/ followed by dir
    2. Hopefully you will see a version number that looks like app-1.0.5 or app-1.0.6 etc. Replace the version number in the command on line 2 and try it again.
    3. If nothing works shoot us a message and we will look over it together

Sharing your public keys is always safe. But don’t trust our word for it, just ask around on the Chia forums or look up other resources. Your private keys should never be shared. Your private keys protect your Chia, if you give those out anybody can use your wallet to send transactions.

The plot generation time differs based on the used Chia software version and the various hardware we employ. The average plot generation time is currently around ~7 hours. This is not including any waiting time before the plot starts. Plots are always started staggered, so there is some delay between the creation of an order and the actual starting time of the plotting process.

In fact, you choose whether where the links should be sent to you, so that the parcels reach you as quickly as possible.
