Quick start Xmrig
In order to get coins you need:
- Download the Xmrig program
- Unzip to any convenient place
- Edit the .bat file with the desired coin (change the wallet to your own)
Configure xmrig for mining Monero
To mine coins using the CryptoNight R algorithm, we need to create or edit a finished batch file for the coin you need. These are the basic settings, which are enough for mining. Secondary settings will be considered later.
Decoding the contents of the batch file
xmrig-amdthis key will indicate which program will be launched. Leave as is. For Nvidia, specify xmrig-nvidia
-a cryptonightspecify the algorithm. For Monero, leave this one. For coins on the cryptonight-lite algorithm, specify it
-o xmr-eu.dwarfpool.comspecify the address of your pool. In this example, we have dwarfpool, because at the time of writing, he received the most positive reviews
after the pool address through a colon, indicate the port of the pool. dwarfpool has 8050
-u 4ALcw9nTAStZSshoWVUJakZ6tLwTDhixhQUQNJkCn4t3fG3MMK19WZM44HnQRvjqmz4LkkA8t565v7iBwQXx2r34HNroSAZafter the -u switch we indicate the address of your digital wallet
.5c01d3dd96ac8e1e4de53c736fd42a5f793d6ede4fb776f2a186a84dba44f3e8after the address through the point we indicate Payment ID. Some coins do not have it
--donate-level=1set up the commission of the miner. By default, it is 5%. level = 1 means 1%
.rig1put a dot and indicate the name of the farm. You can specify any. This is only necessary for tracking statistics on the pool. You will see exactly that name
pausespecify the pause argument so that in case of any error the program does not close, but displays the code and description of the error that has occurred
Important add the key “pause” at the very bottom of the batch file, so that in case of an error program or incorrect .bat file syntax, the program does not immediately closed and displayed on the screen a code and description of the error
On this, the basic configuration of the miner can be completed and the program launched. But for completeness, we will consider all the keys of the program in the “Advanced Settings” section.
