How To Use CGMiner
A simple step by step guide demonstrating how to mine scrypt cryptocurrency (i.e. Dogecoin, Litecoin etc.) using your AMD ATI GPU!
Download the miner
- Download CGMiner by clicking the Download button.
- To run mining on multiple computers, download and install the CGMiner application on all computers that will be used for mining.
- Unzip downloaded package and open the .bat file in the text editor
- In the folder that contains the miner, you should create or edit a file with .bat extension. You can do this in any text editor (for example, Notepad or Notepad++). When you save the file, it’s important to choose ‘All Files’ as a file type, not ‘txt’. Otherwise, you’ll have .bat.txt at the end of the file name, and miner won’t be able to open this file. Your bat file (let’s say it’s called Ehereum-binance_pool.bat) should contain the following text (Step 2):
Attention! For security reasons, Windows may stop you from opening the bat file. In this case, you should permit it to open in the pop-up window.
2Enter the following command:
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 cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://dogeminingpool.com:3009 -u DKs5E8nWJe2E5vYnVSoYqNjw2T17nGYUDo.1 -p password
3Configure the miner with your settingsWALLET_ADDRESS - enter YOUR Ethereum wallet address or pool USERNAME (this is how CGMiner knows where to deposit your ETH) RIG_NAME – you can choose any name (like test), but don’t exaggerate: it should be 32 symbols max, contain only letters and numbers (no special characters like $%»*;@). Do not forget to specify your wallet address in all files!
