Monero is a privacy-focused coin which presently sits around the top Ten of Cryptocurrencies by marketcap. Mining Monero can be a profitable venture due to its cryptographic algorithm which is resistant to ASIC’s mining. This means that anyone with a CPU or GPU can mine for Monero.

This guide will demonstrate you what software programs you need, and how to set thesis programs up so you can mine Monero ter just a matter of minutes.

Monero Mining Software

The following is a list of ways to mine Monero, and what software to use when mining:

  • XMR Stak 2% Dev Toverfee (unless compiled yourself)
  • Wolf’s Miner No Dev Toverfee (not spil optimized)
  • XMR Stak 2% Dev Toverfee (unless compiled yourself)
  • CC Miner

Install Mining Software

XMR Stak has recently come out with an update that permits users to simply download one installer regardless of the hardware that they project on using. Therefore wij will utilize XMR Stak te this guide spil it always yields good results and is very user friendly.

XMR Stak can be downloaded at this listig. Please note that some anti-virus software picks up mining software spil malicious files. To be safe, always verify that you’re downloading from the official source.

The latest version of XMR Stak makes it very effortless to setup. Wij will be assuming users are using Windows for this, but Linux and MacOS versions are also available. Simply download from the verbinding above, unzip to a verkeersopstopping location and run the executable.

Join Mining Pool

Once you run the application, it will ask if you want to mine Monero or Aeon. Wij will choose Monero. Then it asks for us to come in the pool address. Getting involved te a good mining pool is significant spil solo mining can yield little to no prizes without an enormously high hashrate. The pools usually come with a petite toverfee, but justified to get a consistent income. Some of the mining pools wij can use for Monero are:

  • Servers te: France, Germany, Canada
  • 1% Pool Toverfee

25,000 Connected Users

  • 0.5XMR Ondergrens Payout
    • Servers ter: Europe (Two), US East, US Westelijk, Asia
    • 1% Pool Toverfee, and Payout Commission of 0.015XMR

    5000 Connected Users

  • 1XMR Ondergrens Payout
    • Servers te: Europe, USA
    • 1.5% Pool Toverfee, and Payout Commission of 0.014XMR for exchange wallets, or 0.008XMR for normal wallets

    For this guide wij will use the MineXMR software spil it has the lowest fees, and is the closest server to mij (you’ll want to choose the server closest to your location to minimize latency). The following photo shows the connection details to mineXMR which wij will input into the application.

    For my uses, I will input into the application the server I wish to use with the port number. For example, I will use ‘ca.minexmr.com:5555’.

    Monero Wallet Address

    Once this is finish, it asks for your wallet address (or pool login if you’re using something like Supernova). Please see this Monero guide te order to setup a wallet. Once you have your wallet ID, inject it into the application. For password ter our case wij can just succesnummer inject. The MineXMR pool does not support TLS/SSL so wij will use no or ‘n’ here. Wij do not want to use NiceHash, and wij do not want to use numerous pools at this time (albeit it may be beneficial to set up extra pools with automatic switchover just te case one goes down). All thesis values can be adjusted te the config opstopping zometeen on.

    Now the application will run based on the GPU’s you have installed. You can use the directions at the bottom to view the status of your miners. Click ‘h’ to see the hashrate, ‘r’ to see the results of your hashes, or ‘c’ to verify the connection to the pool.

    Config Verkeersopstopping

    If you want to mine with your CPU, you’ll still need to set up the CPU config verkeersopstopping before you can do so. To do this click on the cpu text document that gets generated.

    Once ter the text document, wij want to add the CPU threads to the text document so that it’ll utilize thesis threads for the monero miner. For my case, I have a FX-8150 AMD Chip that uses 8 cores, so ter my cpu text document, I’m going to add:

    This means that it will utilize CPU’s 1,Two,Four,Five,6,7. I also use this PC across the day, so I want to leave a few cores open for my daily activities. For your setup, you may want to run all the cores (albeit freezing sometimes occurs if you do this). You can attempt tweaking the prefetch by switching it to false, but there isn’t many options here for optimizing the CPU’s for mining. Once you’ve made thesis switches, reboot the application and you should notice an increase ter your hashrate spil it should be using both your GPU and CPU. You can also verify this by looking at the explosion on your CPU with an application like OpenHardwareMonitor.

    And that’s it! You’re now mining Monero with your GPU’s and CPU’s. If you everzwijn need to make switches or tweaks due to crashing, or switches to your mining pool, extra settings can be found under the config verkeersopstopping.
