Fast and easy
Ethereum mining power was increased by 3-5% due to the updated miner code - obsolete solutions were eliminated, graphics processor loading capabilities were increased, OpenCL code and assembler kernels were improved.
Applicable for all devices
It supports the operation of AMD, Nvidia graphics cards, and is compatible with the operating systems Windows x64, Linux x64.
It works without interruption
The special timer that the miner is equipped with checks at regular intervals the correct operation of all processors and reloads the program if necessary.
Start in a couple of clicks
Stage 1: Download the miner
Unpack the archive, specifying any path at its discretion. In the folder where the miner will be stored, create a file with the extension .bat. You can perform this operation in any text editor. When saving a file, it is necessary to activate the file type “All files” in the cell, and not “txt”, since the miner will not open files with this extension.
A correctly created bat file always contains such text (Step 2)
Step 2: Configure the .bat file to run Claymore Dual Miner
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethermine.org:4444 -eworker ИМЯ_ВАШЕЙ_ФЕРМЫ -ewal АДРЕС_ВАШЕГО_КОШЕЛЬКА -epsw x
Step 3: Change the wallet address to your own
Wallet_address - you must enter your wallet address for the extracted Ether, so that the program sends the cryptocurrency correctly.
Farm_name - you can choose absolutely any, but do not make it long (no more than 32 characters). It should contain only letters and numbers without special characters.
Stage 4: Start Mining
Double-click on the previously created bat file - this will start the miner. The program will open, setx commands will start, all video cards will be initialized, DAG files will be created for each card and mining will begin. After the program runs for 20 seconds, press "s" - this action will display the hash rate. If all the actions are performed correctly, the following information should appear on the screen:
Mined Ether: how to check the amount of cryptocurrency?
All pools have a different interface, but the principle of verification is always the same. You need to go to the pool site and enter your public wallet address. For example, you need to check the Etheremine pool: enter the wallet address in the search bar - all information about the efforts to extract this cryptocurrency will be displayed. When the balance in the account reaches 0,01 ETH, the funds will be sent to the address of the wallet indicated earlier.
Command Line Arguments for .bat File
-epool Адрес пула Эфириума -eworker Название Вашей фермы или видеокарты -ewal Адрес Вашего Ethereum кошелька -epsw Пароль для пула. Если на пуле нет пароля, то оставьте 'x'
Claymore Dual Miner FAQ
What do you need to mine Ethereum?
- powerful graphics card (GPU), memory more than 4GB;
- appropriate drivers for the video card;
- Ethereum wallet (to store the extracted cryptocurrency);
- mining application - Claymore's Dual Ethereum AMD + NVIDIA GPU Miner;
- address of the mining pool (for mining in the pool).
Caching speed - what is it?
High caching speed is one of the most important conditions for Ethereum mining. Because the faster and more efficient the equipment converts electricity to Ether, the more profit.
On the basis of your and network caching speed, as well as the block time and the price of one ETH, you can approximately determine your earnings.
Ethereum mining algorithm - what is it and what is it for?
“Ethash” is a specific work algorithm that Ethereum uses. It is designed to require more memory so that it is more difficult to use on expensive ASIC devices.
