Bytecoin, a new blockchain released today April 1, 2013.
Exactly 4 years ago, I learned about a wonderful technology that was designed to give the people, power and control over their finances, with anonymity and privacy. 4 years later, we realize that the technology is to be spread, multiplied and evolved. Today we introduce Bytecoin. This is a fresh start for a bigger, wiser community that did not have the opportunity to participate in the early stages of bitcoin.

Download and run Bytecoin at least once at let it sync then close Bytecoin-qt.

Open Notepad++ and create a new file called Bytecoin.conf in your %appdir%/Bytecoin directory.

add

rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpcport=9778 (or 4 random numbers that don't conflict with other coin networks you might be using)
server=1

Save

Right click bytecoin-qt and click 'create shortcut' right click the short cut and click properties

add " -rpcuser=username -rpcpassword=password" to the end of target

You should have something like.

"*:\Directory\bytecoin-qt.exe" -rpcuser=username -rpcpassword=password

Run this new shortcut

Open a miner like GUIminer

Create a new miner that points to localhost:9778 with username password



Enjoy making lots of absolutely nothing.

That makes me want to mine some ByteCoins, actually.  I quoted someone else's image, I don't have any of these new ByteCoins yet!
