Crypto Mining is a way of mining a specific coin by using the hashing power of your machines devices. More info here. Below we will discuss how to mine Denrius(DNR) Coin from one of the many mining pools available. First we must decide on what pool we want to mine too. Below is a list of mining pools available with the tribus algo for mining Denarius(DNR): http://neonpool.sytes.net/https://dnr.coin-miners.info/http://yiimp.ccminer.org/http://pool.denarius.name/http://brutum-pool.com/https://pool.coin-miners.info/http://hashbag.cchttp://kawaiipool.party/http://www.zpool.ca/ Generally on a mining pools site you will find instructions on what to edit your bat file to start mining (which I will cover in a bit). Once we have decided on the pool we wish to mine too, we must then find a miner we want to use. Below is a list of miners. Some miners are specific, such as to mine with your computers GPU or CPU, as well as which GPU or CPU your machine has. So you cant mine with a AMD card using a CUDA miner (Nvidia miner) and vise versa. So make sure you select the correct miner for your GPU or CPU you are going to use: Tribus CPU Miner Source: https://github.com/carsenk/cpuminer-multi (Tested and working on Linux and Windows) tpruvot has kindly updated the CPU Miner Multi Source for Tribus: https://github.com/tpruvot/cpuminer-multi Tribus CPU Miner for Windows: https://github.com/carsenk/cpuminer-multi/releases/download/v1.0-T/cpuminer.exe Optimized CPU Miner: Git: https://github.com/JayDDee/cpuminer-opt Optimized CPU Miner Windows Binary: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0lVSGQYLJIZNHhCeE5iUHluUUE/view?usp=sharing Tribus GPU Miner for NVIDIA GPUs on Windows: https://github.com/carsenk/ccminer/releases/download/v2.0-tpruvot-tribus/ccminer-2.1-tribus.7z Tribus GPU Miner for NVIDIA GPU Source: https://github.com/tpruvot/ccminer Tribus AMD GPU sgminer Source: https://github.com/carsenk/sph-sgminer-tribus Tribus AMD GPU sgminer Windows: https://github.com/carsenk/sph-sgminer-tribus/releases New Tribus AMD GPU sgminer (v5.3.7): http://ccminer.org/preview/sgminer-x64-5.3.7.zip Newer Tribus AMD GPU sgminer v5.3.8: http://ccminer.org/preview/sgminer-x64-5.3.8.zip Enkayz-Hashbag Tribus ccminer v2.2-Skunk: https://hashbag.cc/ccminer-2.2-skunk.zip Now that we have the pool we wish to mine too, and the miner we want to use we cant start setting up our miner! Now as an example lets say we have a Nvidia card we want to use to mine and we have downloaded the "Tribus GPU Miner for NVIDIA on windows" which is a "ccminer". Once we download the correct miner, we open up the miners folder and start creating our bat file, which will be used to start up the miner (some miners come with a bat file already created that we just need to edit). Lets say that no bat file came with the miner, so lets make one. Create a new "Text Document" in the miners folder. (Right click in miners folder > New > Text Document) Now with in the text document add the below text: ccminer-x64 -a tribus -o stratum+tcp://stratum-eu.coin-miners.info:8533 -u DEA4Z4NJps67KDG5NxoUkfKc4XLs1QbpjT -p x pause Above is my bat file text for my personal PC to mine when I'm not using it (in over words when I'm at work or in bed lol) so you will have to edit the files text to your details. Lets break this down, as my miner set up will be different to yours: ccminer-x64 "ccminer-x64" is the .exe file that will be started with in the bat file. In other words the complied miner itself. -a tribus "-a tribus" -a is used to define the algorithm to be used by the miner. -o stratum+tcp://stratum-eu.coin-miners.info:8533 "-o stratum+tcp://stratum-eu.coin-miners.info:8533" -o is used to define the pool we wish to mine to. You will find this information on most pools help page. -u DEA4Z4NJps67KDG5NxoUkfKc4XLs1QbpjT "-u DEA4Z4NJps67KDG5NxoUkfKc4XLs1QbpjT" -u is the wallet address for DNR you wish to mine too. Its really the worker username. You can get a wallet address by downloading the Denarius Wallet. More info on the Denarius Wallet here. But you will need an address so you can obtain and hold your DNR coins earned. -p x "-p x" -p is the password, which is not important or used by most pools. So don't worry about this, but it is still needed in the miners bat file. pause "pause" I use pause at the end of my bat file. I do this as if the miner does not work it will not just close itself down, but pause so I can see any useful information that may be present to help me troubleshoot why the miner failed to start. So all you have to really change is the "-o" for the pools address:port and "-u" to your Denarius Wallet Address. Ok! Now that we have the text file populated we can now turn it in to a bat file. Click File > Save As and name the file what ever you wish, such as "start miner", but at the end of the file name you have chosen add ".bat". So an example would be: "start miner.bat". Your miner folder should look something like this: Great! We now have our miner bat file all ready to start earning us some DNR! All we have to do now is double click our bat file "start miner.bat" and you will see a DoS box / CMD open with information on the miner. If all is well you will start to see you miner hashing like below: You know everything is working correctly when you see your miner hashing and on some miners you get a sign that you are mining such as the green "Yes!" as seen above. If you see a lot of "Boo's" then you have an issue and should stop your miner and investigate. A "Boo's" every now and then is fine. The breakdown of the above is that my two GeForce GTX 680s are hashing at around 16 MH/s each @ 71 degrees temp with the fan speed at 85%. It should be around 20MH/s but the miner has just been started and will take a bit of time to get to its average hashing power. Always make sure to check you Temps! Good practice is to download a monitor for you devices to keep check on them so they don't over heat. If you device starts to get too hot I would under clock them slightly. Thanks and I hope this helps Stu
HI, I'm new to Denarius. I'm currently mining Monero at Minergate but want to try out mining DNR. I have an AMD R9 390 GPU with 8GB. I've done some searching for steps and tried downloading the DNR miner from Github (keep getting virus detected errors) and cannot get it installed. I saw that some people are using sgminer. Don't know how to configure this though, what ip address, server, etc. If someone has the knowledge and the love, could you please point me to a link on how to setup to solo mine DNR? Or write a set of basic steps? Thanks, Muchly
I am having issues setting up my miner...I have previously used the claymore miner to dual mine eth and sia. This is my bat file. @echo off echo "starting up sgminer" @setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 @setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 @setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 @setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 Call :start pause GOTO ENDE :start @set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT = 100 DEL /F *.bin sgminer.exe -a tribus -o stratum+tcp://yiimp.ccminer.org:<8533> -u <DShQSQhPnsV3tv5iZBLj7uVCULtm6r1MWe> -p x EXIT /B 0 :ENDE
