How to Mine?
[Tutorial] How to mine ethereum with gpu or cpu? (Read Me)
If you are on windows x64
1. Download opencl miner
for AMD cards
or cuda miner
for NVIDIA cards.
2. Put your ethereum address at bat-file.
3. Run eth_pp_ua-ocl.bat or eth_pp_ua-cuda.bat
If you are on linux
just open terminal and put commands:
sudo apt-get clean
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum-qt
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereum
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cpp-ethereum
That's it, you have installed c++ version of ethereum and ethminer included
You dont neet to set up account on local, you can mine directly to exchange
Now how connect to pool?
ethminer -G -F http://ethereumpool.co/?miner=10@0x54e8efbd6138011efe9b028e489f6a0bc650e451@OptionalRigName
ethminer -G -F http://ethereumpool.co/?miner=[HASHRATE IN MHASH]@[ADDRESS]@[OPTIONAL RIG NAME]
-G means mining on GPU, if you want try cpu, just do NOT put
Minimal hashrate = 0.01 MHash
Please set valid hashrate in mining url, if you set higher, you may not earn anything, if you set too low, pool will adjust diff to avoid share flood(but you may get more stale shares, so keep values real)
If you have multiple rigs connected here with the same declared hashrate, for example you have 2rigs x 60mhash, dont put 2x60@ please use 60@ and 61@ since this parm is not only hashrate but also unique id for each mining address!
You should get valid share average one per 2-3mins
How does pool calculate revenue for each miner?
PPLNS/Time Prop - If time between last mined and previous mined block is longer than 8 minutes then pool will split proportionally between all miners which submitted valid shares depending on their diff. But if time between mined blocks is smaller than 8 minutes, then we will take previous shares from last 8 minutes and split according to diff and number of shares submitted
When i will receive withdraw?
When your balance exceed 1 ether. Withdraws are processed once a day.
Pool is safe?
Yes, we are verifying every miner step, we have implemented complex proof of work validation
How to get MHash value?
Run ethminer -G -M and result of test divide by 1000000

What if i want to mine directly to my local account ?
We recommend to you install geth since it's more clear

choco install geth-stable -version 184.108.40.206
Now go create account
geth account new
If you already get account you can easily get list of all account created
geth account list
How to check balance ?
Now you are in geth console and paste
0 - represents first account
