Boot into the OS.
After a while, the screen should show details regarding how to connect to the Pi it up.
On your phone or computer, connect to the Pi, open a web browser and navigate to the website given.
Setup the wifi connection for the Pi.
Using Ting or logging into your router to find your Pi’s IP address, copy it and enter ipaddress:8080 into a web browser on the same internet as your Pi. Replace “ipaddress” with your raspberry pi’s IP.
The page should look something like this:
Add your own media with “Add Asset”. Your Raspberry Pi should automatically start showing all “Active Assets”.
I hope this digital signage screen is the right thing for you. If you need any help just comment below.

Yes you can do Verium Mining (a crypto-currency) on a Raspberry Pi! The wallet that can be used with this coin has POS(Proof of stake) which means you gain coins passively. Profitability? We shall talk about that later in the post.
PINN (PINN is not NOOBS)can easily be installed on your Raspberry Pi is easy to do. It is better then NOOBS because PINN allows your to edit the config.txt file straight from the startup application. This can be useful if you overclocked your Raspberry Pi too much and it becomes unstable. PINN also supports custom OSes. You can add your existing versions of Raspbian, RetroPie, etc. As well as coming with large database of images, you can make multiple copies of the same exact OS. You can keep boot files on an SD card and keep OSes on a USB drive if needed. This means you only need a 4GB SD card!
