Is it safe to share my Chia Farmer key and Pool key?

Sharing your public keys is always safe. But don't trust our word for it, just ask around on the Chia forums or look up other resources. Your private keys should never be shared. Your private keys protect your Chia, if you give those out anybody can use your wallet to send transactions.

What is the average Chia plot generation time

The plot generation time differs based on the various hardware we employ. The average plot generation time is currently around 10 hours per plot. This is not including any waiting time before the plot starts. Plots are always started staggered so there is some delay between the creation of an order and the actual starting time of the plotting process.
