So I saw a thread of 4chan about bit coin and was amazed by this idea.

I've set everything up the bitcoin client and poclbm-gui to mine for deepbit.net pool. I am slowly having my balance go up so I know my mining is working however I don't understand the transfers to a 'wallet'. On this site were it says "your wallet for receiving rewards" do i copy paste the address of my bitcoin client to have coins transfered to the wallet.conf file on my computer?

sorry if this is a really noob question but i can't find the answer on google or the wiki.

thanks

Yep, put an address from your client in there and it will send your wallet the coins.

Your wallet, essentially, is your key to your bitcoins, don't lose it! It can have essentially unlimited addresses in it, so don't worry if they change, though for convenience if you name one "Mining rewards" or something like that, you can keep it a bit more organized looking.

Make sure it's a receiving address, that you own Smiley

When you click "Address Book" in the default client, it first shows you the list of Sending addresses (belonging to other people).
