I recently created a container on my virtualization instance to learn about filecoin and what it has to offer, so I decided to go ahead and start a miner.
My question in particular is, how long does it take to initialize? I’ve created an owner and worker address and provided it to the CLI in what I believe is the right order, and I made sure that my owner account has a positive balance. Is there anything I am missing? Is this generally a lengthy process despite most transactions being confirmed in ~10 minutes?
Here is what’s left of my console output:

Thanks in advance.
