Hi to community. Please, help me with two questions:
1. Is there any way to automatically unlock the wallet (windows) for minting? Looked through the help about commandline options, but didn't find anything suitable..
2. What is minimum of NVC should be on the ballance to mint?
Thanks in advance.
There is no way of automatically unlocking the wallet, because unlocking naturally requires you to enter your password. The only way to avoid this would be to not set a password at all. Generally, minting takes its time, and I would advise to have a low-energy-consumption desktop or old laptop run 24/7
. It's also more secure. If you mint on the PC that you use for other purposes, it will make you tired to open and unlock the Novacoin client everyday.
Believe me, its worth it.
Personally, I am using an Intel Atom with Linux to mint Novacoin and two other cryptocurrencies 24/7, while running also a Bitcoin full node.
There is no minimum of NVC required to mint, but small outputs will take a long time to mint. I would advise to have outputs of between 50-100 NVC. Greater outputs would mint faster, but they could hit the fixed 10 NVC reward ceiling before minting, so you would miss out on some reward.
Also, note that an output will not mint during the first 30 days. It will reach its maximum probability after 120 days.

I hope this helps.
