    Please donate because I can not buy ETH from my country (Uruguay) and a GPU is more than $ 1000 because we have an import duty of 60%. Thanks a lot 0x579e7Bded157E4A2fA689F906c37303CF67B9312

    Don't download the blockchain using geth --rpc command. That's the full blockchain, and it's super heavy like in the hundreds of Gigabytes. Instead use the command geth --fast --cache=2048 . It's a trimmed version of the blockchain, something like 15GB, it's probably enough for the normal miner. If you already started downloading the full version then you need to either delete the blockchain (where you had your full version) folder or rename the folder if you want to get the fast version, the full version ins't compatble with the fast, it's one or the other. The blockchain folder is found on C:\\Users\(youruser)\AppDatta\Roaming\Ethereum\Geth\ . Also you can use mist or the wallet program to see the progress percentage of the blockchain download, it's the first thing that appears when you open them.Hope this helps.
