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):

https://dnr.coin-miners.info/
http://yiimp.ccminer.org/
http://pool.denarius.name/
http://brutum-pool.com/
https://pool.coin-miners.info/
http://hashbag.cc
http://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:

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:

59661c96ebb1f_batfile.png.85a524984aeac5da5aa8a5307688902e.png

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:

miner.png.973171876f37d4325673ee2e18a3904f.png

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 :)

Just some stats for informational purposes.
Maybe a "expected hashrate" table can be constructed with this data.

My mining statistics:
Nvidia GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming.
Average Hashrate: 39 ~41 MH/s (see picture)
Fan speed: +/- 45% in standard air cooled case
GPU temp: constant 62°C on 98% load
Pool: http://hashbag.cc/

overclock presets for best result. I have +200 for core. Sorry for my english)

Its all good mate :) Your English is good.

It really depends. What I tend to do is download something like "MSI Afterburner" and start to tweak my GPUS clock speed and Mem until I find a nice balance between: Hashing Power, Power Usage (watts), and Temp.

Just bump up your cards stats bit by bit (like +25 to 50) until you find a nice balance and the card / pc doesn't crash. I run my cards on my personal computer at around +125 Clock and +75 Mem with voltage turned right up, but sometimes it gets really hot in my computer room with my mining rig and servers, so I turn it down to compensate for heat in room.

Be warned though that over clocking can reduce your GPUs life span as well as produce more heat.

You can also flash the cards BIOS but this is something you do ONLY if you know what you are doing, and it can take some time to get the right settings for you card, and if you do it wrong you will brick your GPU (total brake it and likely be un-recoverable)

oh, I see. Thank you for quick response. It will be normal in winter but not when +30-40 outside. Maybe try latter) Thanks

what version of sgminer you used?

could you share your start.bat or config if you used sgminer-x64-5.3.8, coz used that but only managed around 27,4 mh/s with my nitro rx 470 4gb...

thanks in advance..

my intensity was 22 when i sett 24 or above it my hashrate become unstable on hashbag..

and i used sgminer-dnr.conf from sgminer-x64-5.3.8..

this is my config look a like..

    {
      "name":"hashbag",

Hello, Never really solo mined before. I believe you need to have the wallet on your machine and sync'd with network. Then download your miner and set it up to point to your localhost:

An example command to solo mine Denarius:

miner.exe -a tribus -o http://127.0.0.1:32339 -u walletaddress -p x

Username and password for your miner must match the wallet configuration

ccminer-x64 -a tribus -o http://127.0.0.1:32339 -u denariususer -p xx --max-temp=75

Edit your wallet configuration and restart the wallet

The wallet configuration is located here:

C:/Users/yourname/AppData/Roaming/Denarius/denarius.conf

server=1

daemon=1

listen=1

rpcuser=denariususer

rpcpassword=xx

rpcport=32339

rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

Don't know about the hashrate you need but I'm using the https://dnr.coin-miners.info/ pool

using "-o stratum+tcp://stratum-eu.coin-miners.info:8533" in ccminer

The pool is averaging at 500Mh/s

We find a block every hour or so. You can look at my stats here:
