Creating your first Plot

In this lesson, we learn how to set up the Chia client, sync our full node using a torrent file, and create our first plot to start farming.

Learning objectives

  • Syncing a Full Node: Learn how to set up the Chia client and sync a full node.
  • Plot Creation: Learn how to create a plot.


Common gotchas

  • Joining a pool before plotting: It might seem strange to join a pool before setting up your plots, but the plots need to be generated using a plotnft in order for the pool to know who runs them. You must associate a plotnft with a pool if you want to use pooling, and if set up correctly you can always leave the pool later and farm your plots solo.
