Getting Started Guide

1. Create account.

  • Register here, or login if you already have account
  • Create a worker that will be used by the miner to login

2. Download a miner.

3. Configure your miner.

    Settings for Stratum (recommended):

    Password:Worker Password

  • CPU Miner
  • ./zcash-standalone-miner/src/zcash-miner -stratum=stratum+tcp:// -user=Weblogin.Worker -password=Worker password -debug -printtoconsole

  • Nicehash CPU + GPU Miner
  • ./nheqminer -l -u Weblogin.Worker -p password -t 4 

  • NOTE: On the latest Windows Binary you don't need "-l" at all - don't use that flag, it will be re-added later ! So use the miner like this:

  • ./nheqminer -l -u Weblogin.Worker -p password -t 4 

  • Genoils AMD GPU Miner
  • genoil.exe -c -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password -P 0 -g 0 1 -i 13 

  • Claymore Dual Miner
  • ZecMiner64.exe -zpool -zwal YourUsername.YourWorker -zpsw YourWorkerPass -allpools 1

  • EWBF's CUDA Zcash miner
  • miner.exe --server --user suprnova.1 --pass x --port 142  --cuda_devices 0 1 2 3 

  • tpruvots ccminer CUDA
  • ccminer.exe -a equihash -o stratum+tcp:// -u suprnova.1 -p x 

    Note: Static Diff can always be set through the password field. If you want a worker diff of 8 use d=8 as your password like so:

    nheqminer.exe -u suprnova.4 -p d=8 

    If you prefer anonymous mining without registering on the pool, you can also just specify your wallet address for mining::

    ./nheqminer -l -u t1gmg4yJuwDvErGbzVERx69zt9qsa4ZpMYG -p x

    Anonymous Statistics for your miner can then be read by appending/replacing your wallet address to/in this URL:

    You then need to change "-u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password" to reflect your own account. Eg, "-u Steve.StevesWorker -p StevesWorkerPassword" Then go to "File => Save as" and save the file as "RunMe.bat" in the same folder as minerd. You are now ready to mine, double click on "RunMe.bat" to start mining. If you want, you can create additional workers with usernames and passwords of your choice here

4. Create a ZECcoin address to receive payments.

  • Downloading the client & block chain: Download the ZECcoin client from here.

    Generate a new address and input it on your account page to receive payments.
