Great job, will send you some BIS.
You should see some already in your wallet from hclives.
Thank you for supporting BIS!


maybe a super noob question, but what would be the rigname (rig1?) where can I find it or generate one?

Just give it a name you want example: MyRig, GTXXXX, miner etc. This is useful if you have several rigs mining on the same address.
