Step 1: Learn
First, you might want to learn more about Garlicoin.
- Here you'll find all the technical details: What Is Garlicoin.
Feel free to ping the Discord or Reddit with burning questions!
Step 2: Wallet
Once you have done that, you will want to get a Wallet (so you can have your own GRLC).
We officially support two types of wallets: Core and Garlium.
- Core is more secure and allows for any type of mining, but takes longer to load the blockchain and uses the Command Line or a GUI.
- Garlium is an easy to use, GUI Application, and is instant, but reduces the network security AND does not allow for solo mining. There are other types of wallets that you can find in the Wallet section in the navbar.

Step 3: Mining
Mining is the process of using your hardware to generate/mint new Garlicoins. You will receive small increments depending on how much computing power you use.
If you want to mine, you need to learn more about the different choices you will have to make when mining, you can do so How To Mine.
Once you know what you want to do (CPU vs GPU, Solo vs Pool), then you can choose its corresponding guide.
GPU Pool Mining is recommended as it has the highest success rate.
