How to start pool mining in Linux


Once you've have your wallet running you might wanna start mining!
In case you haven't a wallet yet check out this tutorial this will get you to exactly the point where this tutorial starts.
Getting Started

To Mine Coins you need 3 things:

a burst wallet

a pool

at least 1 plotfile

First of all ask yourselfe this question: How much storage do you have to spare to mine Burst? (Keep in mind, while you mine Burst you won't be able to use this storage for anything else then mining Burst, so it might not be the best idea to fill your C: completely!)

Once your able to answer that question lets say you went with 500 GB have a look at this list

As you can see the has a recommended plot size of 0.497 TB (~500GB) so for now this pool seems to be a good point to start.

I've started my own Pools for miners starting at 1 TB, more informations here: First V3 Ninja Pool for Regular Miners...

Ethereum is a crypto currency similar to Bitcoin as it is based on the blockchain technology. Ethereum is not yet another Bitcoin clone though, since it has an additional feature called Smart Contracts that makes it unique and very promising. I am not going into details how Ethereum works, you can get that...

While the actual process of Bitcoin mining is handled by the Bitcoin mining hardware itself, special Bitcoin mining software is needed to connect your Bitcoin miners to the blockchain and your Bitcoin mining pool as well, if you are part of a Bitcoin mining pool.

The software delivers the work to the miners and receives the completed work from the miners and relays that information back to the blockchain and your mining pool. The best Bitcoin mining software can run on almost any operating system, such as OSX, Windows, Linux, and has even been ported to work on a Raspberry Pi with some modifications for drivers depending on your mining setup.

Not only does the Bitcoin mining software relay the input and output of your Bitcoin miners to the blockchain, but it also monitors them and displays general statistics such as the temperature, hashrate, fan speed, and average speed of the Bitcoin miner.

There are a few different types of Bitcoin mining software out there...

Before you begin, follow our tutorial for

creating a Monero wallet

. Then choose a mining pool from the list above. For the resilience of the Monero mining network, it is advisable that we all choose different mining pools so that an unhealthy concentration does not appear at any one mining pool. The examples below use the "stratum+tcp://" address for the pool. Swap that address for the address of the pool you wish to use.

) is a Windows GUI for the popular Wolf CPU miner. Download the zip file


, and unzip it. Then run the monerospelunker.exe file and enter your Monero wallet address were you would like to be paid for your mining. Enter the mining address of the pool you have chosen, then click 'start mining'.

To mine bitcoins use cpuminer (click here) and avoid any graphical application: a console application is faster and doesn't need much memory. This may be the reason why bitcoin-qt wallet has dropped the official support for bitcoin mining.

You should compile cpuminer from the source code to obtain optimal performance. Binary packages are not optimized for your system and therefore are often slower. To execute the cpuminer installation + compilation procedure on Ubuntu, follow this askUbuntu topic.

WARNING: don't use cpuminer or any miner software on remote hosted machines, it's considered as an abuse of common resources and can be treated as an attack to the hosted system.

NOTE: Bitcoin mining is very time consuming and you need a very powerful network of server machines to obtain even a small result (less than a bitcoin in most cases). This is due to the fact that you are competing with people and organizations running highly specialized hardware (ASIC miners,...

Mining bitcoins – a process that helps manage bitcoin transactions as well as create new “wealth” – is the new Beanie Babies. Luckily for us, however, bitcoins seem to be going up in value and should maintain their value over time, unlike your mint condition Tiny the stuffed Chihuahua.

But how do you get bitcoins? You can begin by buying them outright, but the market is currently wild. At $188 per coin, the direction of the bitcoin is anyone’s guess right now and, unlike equities, these things don’t split. In short, you should probably mine. But what is bitcoin mining?

Think of it as work done by groups of people to find large prime numbers or trying keys to decrypt a file. You can read a lot more about it here but just understand that for every block mined you get 25 coins or, at current rates, $4,722.25. Currently a single bitcoin is valued at $188, an alarming result that is probably caused by money movements related to Cyprus and a general bubble-like excitement...

Are you fond of free, open source operating systems based on Linux like Ubuntu? You’re not alone. There are a lot of people who love it and they love Bitcoin at the same time. What if you want to mine some coins using these operating systems but don’t know how? We’ve got the answer for you.

A Little Bit of History

There are many such people who love these operating systems among the Bitcoin network. It is obvious because these operating systems are a sort of a symbol of the free and open Internet. A few years ago, these operating systems were considered as a good option or a competitor to Microsoft’s Windows operating systems. Probably the reason was Microsoft’s attitude to their customers and almost monopolistic control of the market. The same was with the cryptocurrency. People needed something which could replace an old and imperfect fiat monetary system and the solution had been given in 2009 by an anonymous programmer. Satoshi Nakamoto, who created and...

This is real ZCash pool mining on using nheqminer by nicehash - this is not renting your rig for someone else to mine using nicehash, it is only using their miner to mine on your own through the suprnova mining pool. Note that ZCash is still in testnet until Oct. 28th 2016 and until then you can only mine test coins which hold no value and will be reset on the 28th.

However, It is worth creating your account now and preparing your systems/rigs to mine ZCash now so that you are ready for the Genesis Block launch on the 28th.

I am using Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon, but this miner and walk-through-how-to should also work in Ubuntu and other Debian Based Linux Distros.

First I would like to talk on mining pools
Mining pools are pooling resources that uses your pc or android processor as hashpower to mine cryptocurrency for you or
mining pool is the pooling of resources by miners, who share their processing power over a network, to split the reward equally, according to the amount of work they contributed to solving a block.

This post is for those who would like to start mining little by little on their android phones or pc

Step1:for android users

Register to a mining pool
Then copy out ur worker username and password,which should look like this:
Username: emmydav.1
password : 1
This is what u would input in your android miner

Step2: download an android miner Arm miner frm playstore

Open and configure this way,click on settings on the miner.

that is error i had , help please.

Станислав Рачев: what is your linux distro for ZEC? how to config it ?

Dan Mathewson: Sooo Crytomined. Sorry if this is a stupid question or if i missed it. When the time comes to start mining for real on the 28th. How does this miner pay out to your Zcash wallet? I've got it up and running I've also have the swing wallet . I see a hash rate reporting to suprnova's site but Is there a place in the config to add a wallet address?

Please provide a minimal step of steps that I need to start mining.

With ethereum I didn't need to let wallet sync & other nonsense. I could create address with geth account new.
Then I could download Claymore mining and join a pool.

What do I need to do in order to create a siacoin wallet address for mining?
I was following this tutorial, but I don't really understand it:

That mentions hosting, I am not interested in hosting, only mining.
Will this guide spare me the trouble of downloading / syncing / time wasting?

Also how will I confirmed I got payed by the pool?

I have been using linux for about a year now and I've never installed software by creating a user / group for it first. It seems I should create and remember or write down password for that user too?

I've googled "linux how and why to install software by creating user for it"...

Also good information for compiling under linux is here:

I use CentOS 7. It comes with gcc 4.8 (CentOS focuses on stability), but it is quite easy to get newer versions runing using the Software Collections. Here I show how to compile creepMiner starting from a clean minimal CentOS 7 instalation:

The Nexus Wallet is required to generate addresses which will be used when mining. You'll need to generate your own wallet and create an address to obtain the NXS you mine.

One of the biggest problems I ran into when I was looking to start mining Bitcoin for investment and profit was most of the sites were written for the advanced user. I am not a professional coder, I have no experience with Ubuntu, Linux and minimal experience with Mac. So, this is for the individual or group that wants to get started the easy way.

1. Get a Bitcoin mining rig

Bitcoin mining is a very competitive niche to get into. As more and more miners come on board with the latest mining hardware the difficulty to mine increases each day. Before even starting out with Bitcoin mining you need to do your due diligence. This means you need to find out if Bitcoin mining is even profitable for you.

The best way to do this is through the use of a Bitcoin mining calculator. Just enter the data of the Bitcoin miner you are planning on buying and see how long it will take you to break even or make a profit. However, I can tell you from the get go that if you don’t...

Your main mining power is your plots, they are the ones producing deadlines for you. Bigger the plots equals lower the deadlines, and lower deadlines equals more blocks mined by you. There is no other way to get lower deadlines, then simply having bigger plots! There are other ways to improve what you earn, one of them is stealing block from slow miners:
Example: If you found a 30 seconds deadline after 7 seconds, you would be able to beat someone needing 35 seconds to find a 5 second deadline
Other then that, there isn’t a lot you can do to improve your earning, so don’t expect something crazy.
Below is a list over things people have suggested. Lets see if they hold water.

Optimizing your plots
By optimizing your plots you reduce the time it takes to send your deadlines to the network, which could give a few extra blocks. You can find more information about optimizing here.
Yes, optimizing your plots helps to reduce your reading time, achieving the...
