such beginner shibe thread wow how to get coin

 how to shibecoin v rich in minutes much instruct so simple any doge can do 

START HERE

UPDATE 1/21/14: I'm not updating this guide anymore. Most of the steps should still work though. See the wiki or check the sidebar for updated instructions.
Before you do anything else, you need to get a wallet. Until there's a secure online wallet, this means you need to download the dogecoin client.
Now open the client you just downloaded. You'll be given a default address automatically, and it should connect to peers and start downloading the dogechain (aka blockchain in formal speak). You'll know because there will be a progress bar at the bottom and at the lower right there should be a signal strength icon (TODO: add screenshots).
If you've waited 2 or 3 minutes and nothing is happening, copy this:
maxconnections=100 addnode=95.85.29.144 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=146.185.181.114 addnode=188.165.19.28 addnode=166.78.155.36 addnode=doge.scryptpools.com addnode=doge.netcodepool.org addnode=doge.pool.webxass.de addnode=doge.cryptopool.it addnode=pool.testserverino.de addnode=doge.luckyminers.com addnode=doge.cryptovalley.com addnode=miner.coinedup.comdoge addnode=doge.cryptoculture.net addnode=dogepool.pw addnode=doge.gentoomen.org addnode=doge.cryptominer.net addnode=67.205.20.10 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=78.46.57.132 
And paste it into a new text file called dogecoin.conf, which you then place into the dogecoin app directory.
Now restart your qt client and the blockchain should start downloading in about 1-2 minutes.
Once it finished downloading, you're ready to send and receive Dogecoins!

GETTING COINS

Decide how you want to get Dogecoin. Your options are:
I'll go into detail about each of these. I'm currently writing this out. I'll make edits as I add sections. Suggestions are welcome.

MINING

Mining is how new dogecoins are created. If you're new to crypto currencies, read this. To mine (also called "digging"), a computer with a decent GPU (graphics card) is recommended. You can also mine with your CPU, but it's not as efficient.

GPU MINING

These instructions cover only Windows for now. To mine, you'll need to figure out what GPU you have. It'll be either AMD/ATI or Nvidia. The setup for both is approximately the same.

Step One: Choose a pool

There's a list of pools on the wiki. For now it doesn't really matter which one you choose. You can easily switch later.
NOTE: You can mine in two ways. Solo mining is where you mine by yourself. When you find a block you get all the reward. Pool mining is when you team up with other miners to work on the same block together. This makes it more likely that you'll find a block, but you won't get all of it, you'll have to split it up with others according to your share of the work. Pool mining is recommended because it gives you frequent payouts, because you find more blocks. The larger the pool you join, the more frequent the payouts, but the smaller the reward you get.
Over a long period of time the difference between pool and solo mining goes away, but if you solo mine it might be months before you get any coins.

Step two: Set up pool account

The pool you chose should have a getting started page. Read it and follow the instructions. Instructions vary but the general idea is:
When you're done with this, you'll need to know:

Step three: Download mining software

For best performance you'll need the right mining software.
Unzip the download anywhere you want.

Step four: Set up miner

Create a text file in the same folder as your miner application. Inside, put the command you'll be running (remove brackets).
For AMD it's cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://: -u -p
For Nvidia it's cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://: -O :
Substitute the right stuff in for the placeholders. Then on the next line of the text file type pause. This will let you see any errors that you get. Then save the file with any name you want, as long as the file extension is .bat. For example mine_serverName.bat.

Step five: Launch your miner

Just open the .bat file and a command line window should pop up, letting you know that the miner is starting. Once it starts, it should print out your hash rate.
If you now go to the pool website, the dashboard should start showing your hashrate. At first it'll be lower than what it says in the miner, but that's because the dashboard is taking a 5 minute average. It'll catch up soon enough.
NOTE: A normal hashrate is between 50 Kh/s up to even 1 Mh/s depending on your GPU.

You're now mining Dogecoins

That's it, nothing more to it.

CPU MINING

CPU mining isn't really recommended, because you'll be spending a lot on more on power than you'd make from mining Dogecoin. You could better spend that money on buying Dogecoin by trading. But if you have free electricity and want to try it out, check out this informative forum post.

Trading

Trading has been difficult so far, but Dogecoin just got added to a few new exchanges. If you don't have a giant mining rig, this is probably the best way to get 100k or more dogecoins at the moment. I'll write up a more complete guide, but for now check out these sites:

Faucets

Faucets are sites that give out free coins. Usually a site will give out somewhere between 1 and 100 Dogecoin. Every site has its own time limits, but usually you can only receive coins once every few hours, or in some cases, days. It's a great way to get started. All you do is copy your address from the receive section of your wallet and enter it on some faucet sites. Check out /dogecoinfaucets for more. If you go to each site on there you might end up with a couple hundred Dogecoin!

Begging

This method is pretty straightforward. Post your receiving address, and ask for some coins. Such poor shibe. The only catch is, don't do it here! Please go to /dogecoinbeg.

Tips

At the moment there are two tip bots:
Other redditors can give you Dogecoin by summoning the tip bot, something like this:
+dogetipbot 5 doge
This might happen if you make a good post, or someone just wants to give out some coins. Once you receive a tip you have to accept it in a few days or else it'll get returned. Do this by following the instructions on the message you receive in your inbox. You reply to the bot with "+accept". Commands go in the message body. Once you do that, the bot will create a tipping address for you, and you can use the links in the message you receive to see your info, withdraw coins to your dogecoin-qt wallet, see your history, and a bunch of other stuff.
As a bonus, so_doge_tip has a feature where you can get some Dogecoins to start with in exchange for how much karma you have. To do this, send the message "+redeem DOGE" to so_doge_tip. You'll need to create a tipping account if you don't have one.
If you want to create a tipping account without ever being tipped first, message either of the bots with "+register" and an address will be created for you.

How to Earn Money Mining Virtual Currency With Your Average Computer - A Full Guide

Lately I've been exploring some alternatives to the typical grind that is online work. I've always followed Bitcoin pretty closely and knew of Bitcoin mining, but I was also aware of how difficult it's become. The difficulty is so high it's not even worth trying with the average computer. However, as of late there has been an explosion of new virtual coins. There are now hundreds (if not thousands) being mined. There is debate on how much of a help or hindrance all these altcoins are to the world of virtual currency, but regardless they open up a lot of chances to earn money with your average computers unused resources.
I decided to start digging into all the altcoins and find one that was new, easy to mine, had a solid and dedicated dev team, and a solid purpose so it's less likely to die off. What I ended up with was CasinoCoin. At the time it was sitting around $0.009 USD each, and fit all of my requirements. I took my two laptops with their i3 cpu's and no gpu's (20kH/s total) and set them to work mining at MooPool.com. A couple days later around the time I hit 300 coins the price jumped up to a peak of $0.11, and my poke at mining altcoin turned into $33. Now I'm not saying this is a ton of money, but consider the fact that I was only mining at 20kH/s on CPU's. Better computers (especially those with GPU's) will mine many more CasinoCoins.
So with my recent tests a success I figured I'd share my findings and make an easy guide to mining virtual currency. This quick guide will be done for CasinoCoin over at MooPool.com since it's my coin of choice, but can be applied to any virtual currency.
GPU Guide (You can run a miner for every GPU and CPU you have)
To my knowledge the most efficient GPU miner at the moment is CudaMiner
cuda miner is a miner specifically designed for Nvidia's architecture. Nvidia's cuda cores are not well suited for alt coin mining, so cuda miner helps you to get the most of Nvidia cards. If you have an AMD GPU, cgminer is what you want to use. -zekezander
Download the correct version for your machine and extract the archive to a folder somewhere convenient.
Open up notepad and paste in the following.
cudaminer.exe -q --algo=scrypt --url=stratum+tcp://stratum.moopool.com:3333 --userpass=kirk.Reddit.gpu:Narwhal
Now save it as StartMining.bat in the miner folder and run it.
You should start seeing blocks detected, and once the pool tunes into your hashing power you can check the hash rate of your shares to get a feel for what you're capable of.
-q is for quiet mode, when turned off you will see all of your hashing. When turned on you will only see your accepted shares and their total hash rates.
Now it's time to make an account at MooPool.com so we can customize the miner.
Start by adding a worker for each device you'll have mining.
Next we customize the bat file in the following manner.
Username & Password (--userpass account.worker:password)
(If you have multiple GPU's you may need additional changes to your bat file, I'm not sure how to set this up.)
Now save it and start it up. If you did everything correctly you should see you hash rate start to rise then average out on the websites dashboard. You are now helping to break "blocks" worth 50CSC each. When the pool breaks one it is distributed fairly to everyone who helped based on the amount of work they contributed. The faster the pool mines, the quicker we all get CSC.
Lastly you need to download a personal CSC wallet HERE so you can withdraw your funds. Once you have your wallet address remember to add it to your account and enable automatic payouts.
CPU Guide
To my knowledge the most efficient CPU miner at the moment is Pooler CPU Miner
Download the correct version for your machine and extract the archive to a folder somewhere convenient.
Open up notepad and paste in the following.
minerd.exe -o stratum+tcp://stratum.moopool.com:3333 -u kirk.Reddit.cpu -p Narwhal -q
Now save it as StartMining.bat in the miner folder and run it.
You should start seeing blocks detected, and once the pool tunes into your hashing power you can check the hash rate of your shares to get a feel for what you're capable of.
-q is for quiet mode, when turned off you will see all of your hashing. When turned on you will only see your accepted shares and their total hash rates.
Now it's time to make an account at MooPool.com so we can customize the miner.
Start by adding a worker for each device you'll have mining.
Next we customize the bat file in the following manner.
Username (-u account.worker) Password (-p Password)
Now save it and start it up. If you did everything correctly you should see you hash rate start to rise then average out on the websites dashboard. You are now helping to break "blocks" worth 50CSC each. When the pool breaks one it is distributed fairly to everyone who helped based on the amount of work they contributed. The faster the pool mines, the quicker we all get CSC.
Lastly you need to download a personal CSC wallet HERE so you can withdraw your funds. Once you have your wallet address remember to add it to your account and enable automatic payouts.
Turning your CSC into USD
In order to sell your CSC you will need to use an exchange. So far Cryptsy(Ref) - Cryptsy (Non-Ref) is the only site that does CSC exchanges. When you're happy with the price sell off your CSC for BTC. Next take your BTC and send it to CoinBase(Ref) - CoinBase(Non-Ref) where you can easily sell it for USD and have it sent to your bank account.
Hope this helps some of you out, Happy Mining!
If you found this of use and would like to donate these are my wallets, or you can just mine with the sample .bat launchers for a bit :)

Why Dogecoin could succeed where Bitcoin Failed (Part Deux)

This is pretty long, and its a bit too broken up to do a TL;DR. My apologies for any inconveniences.
Quick-ish Disclaimer: By and large I don’t have any professional basis for what I am about to discuss. I have no degree in economics and certainly did not have the foresight to invest in Bitcoin a few years ago. I also do not claim to be as eloquent as the beautiful and talented goodshibe , but I figure it couldn’t hurt to write up another article, since the best part about the dog coin community is that everyone can get a word in and be listened to. Oh, and the first part of this is linked at the bottom, if you didn’t catch it. So, without any further adieu…
This article is going to be broken up into a few different sections based on topic.
Growth
Last time I wrote one of these the price of Dogecoin was about one sixth of what it is now, and the community was less than half the size that it is currently. At the time there was no Jamaican Bobsled team, no Sochi Olympics, and the Save Dogemas campaign was just starting to pick up steam (which is still 2.4 million short of its goal, so if you have any spare doge…). It sounds like ancient history now, but this was just under 16 days ago. Its insane to think that we’ve grown so much in such a short time, but at just over 50,000 shibes on reddit alone, I like to think we’ve shown the crypto world that we’re here to stay.
Community
You know, I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t been around to watch it happen. Like many others, I was introduced to cryptocurrency by Dogecoin. Unlike the large majority of the people here, I have been here from more or less the beginning; I remember the days of 20 satochi, of difficulty below 100. I was there in the age of the 3000000 Doge tip, when this community was just getting started. Even then , as a community of a few thousand, I was awed by the generosity and the good spirit of the community. As Dogecoin grew, I became concerned that the involvement of “real world money” would dampen the community; turning it from the lighthearted fun place it was into Wall Street 2.0. I am both happy and amazed to say that my fears were 100% unfounded; even with our astronomical growth, the spirit of the community remains intact, embodied by everyone from silentshibe to the thousands of us that have tipped 10 doge, 100 doge, or 100 doge. If you are reading this, YOU are the ones who have created a community unlike that of any other cryptocoin, YOU are the reason that Dogecoin is where it is today, and YOU are the reason we will go to the moon, together.
Services
Well, since the last time I wrote one of these, this category has come a long way. For a coin that is only six weeks old, we have developed an infrastructure beyond that of any other altcoin, besides possibility Litecoin. The big news this week was with Vault of Satochi, but quite a few people are ignorant to the fact that there are some marketplaces that now take Doge. Some of you may have seen the post about one of us who bought a Playstation 4 off of one of these sites. Remember, if we want dogecoin to be accepted as a currency, we have to use it as a currency. Another development is that (to my knowledge), moolah_ is developing some sort of cryptocurrency payment system, which is good for all coins, not just Dogecoin.
Other Coins
Be friendly, thats it, really. Remember that Bitcoin users have been fighting to gain acceptance for a long time, and its only natural for them to be a bit bitter about us coming out of nowhere and becoming a top currency in 6 weeks. Same goes for litecoin, I don’t imagine that they we’re thrilled to be overtaken in activity by a simple “litecoin knockoff” that they very much expected to be another pump-and-dump. As long as we keep friendly, we’re bound to win them over eventually. Until then, keep it, at the very least, civil.
Price
First off, DON'T PANIC. Anyone who has been watching cryptos knows that they are volatile. Remember, we’re only six weeks old, and not to long ago 25 satochis was the norm. Like I said, I’m no market spectator, but what I’m about to say is common sense: If we panic every time the price dips a bit, we’re not doing a whole lot to show that we trust in the currency. If we don’t believe in its stability, how are we going to convince others to? Listen, if you want dogecoin to succeed, to reach whatever your idea of “the moon” is, you need to show some confidence. Thats how you convince people we’re here for the long run; by holding on and not panicking every time the price dips. Remember, some of the people who stuck with bitcoin, no matter how bleak it looked, are millionaires now.
Other Thoughts
In regards to the whole “inflationary block reward” thing, remember that, technically, all cryptocoins are inflationary from year to year. At 5% in the first year, our rate of inflation is lower than that of Bitcoin or Litecoin, and will continue to be for some time.
Just for the record, I am not in fact a rich shibe, (at around 300k I’m hardly poor, but I’m no dogeillionare) despite getting in pretty early. For any newcomers reading this, the trick to stable income is to stick with one pool. If you have an AMD card, use CCMiner. If you have a Nvidia card, use CUDAminer. More info on that in /dogemining. Trust me, it’s a lot easier to get into if you have a guide, instead of trying to figure it out on your own, as I did.
On the off chance that all the naysayers are right, and this crashes someday, I just want you all to know what an experience it has been. With all the shit you hear about going on in the world, its nice to be able to come here and see nothing but people helping, tipping, and being kind. While I don’t want to come across as preachy, remember that the spirit of this community doesn't have to exist JUST in this community.
If you took the time to read all of this, thanks. If you skimmed, thanks. If you just want to go to the comments section to call me a dumbass, thats fine too. And again, if there is a demand, I’ll be happy to write some more for you guys.

How To Dig For DogeCoin With Your Average Computer - A Full Guide

Hello fellow doge's! I posted this guide over at /beermoney and and it received a huge amount of attention. I figured I would modify it for the the DogeCoin pool to help you guys out! Hopefully it helps some of you get started.
-Note* This guide was written for CasinoCoin, but I'll modify the information to apply to DogeCoin.

How to Nvidia GPU mine ReddCoin on Windows

I thought would put together another tutorial for anyone looking to get started with mining ReddCoin's. it is a bit of a plug for my own mining pool rdd.surmine.com, but you're free to mine of another pool, the process is pretty much the same.
Once broken down into individual parts the whole process is quite simple and should only take less than half an hour to start mining.
The process can be broken down into the following stages:

Stage 1: Setup ReddCoin Wallet

  1. Goto reddcoin.com , click on "Wallets" then click "Windows", save the zip file to your PC.
  2. Once Downloaded, open the zip file, within that go into the ReddCoin folder then "32", launch the ReddCoin setup .exe and you will be presented with the ReddCoin Setup Wizard. Setup Image 1
  3. Click Next and leave the Destination folder ( you can customize the destination if you like) Setup Image 2
  4. Click Install. Setup Image 3
  5. Once the package is installed click Next then and Finish. Setup Image 4
  6. On launch you may get a firewall error, Click Allow access. (Only enable Public networks is you have to )
  7. Your ReddCoin wallet is now running. It may show "No block source available" in the bottom left corner, give it 15 mins and it should connect to the network, if not check your firewall settings. Once you see "Synchronizing with network" in the bottom left you know you are good. Setup Image 5
  8. Click the Receive tab and write down your ReddCoin address, this is your address to receive coins. Setup Image 6

Stage 2: Create Mining Pool account.

There are multiple pools you can choose from but as I run a mining pool I might as well plug my own rdd.suremine.com , If you would like to use another the following steps will work with another pool.
  1. Point your browser at rdd.suremine.com, in the top right hand corner of the page click "Guest" then "Sign Up". Account Image 1
  2. Complete the registration form, make sure you choose a good password that is unique to this poll, write down the PIN, as if you lose it you lose your coins! Account Image 2
  3. Check your email and Click the email verification link, if you can't see the email check your spam folder.
  4. Login to your account and Click "My Account" then click "Edit Account" On the Left Hand Nav. Enter your PIN and click unlock. This will create a confirmation email you will need to click. Account Image 3
  5. Check your email and Click the email verification link, if you can't see the email check your spam folder.
    • Set your payment address ( the one you copied down when you created your wallet).
    • Set your Donation Percentage ( this helps keep the pool running).
    • Set your automatic payout threshold ( low to start with to see the funds come through).
    • Insert your pin again.
    • Click Update Account. Account Image 4
  6. On the Left Hand Navigation bar click "My Account" then "My Workers". Enter a worker name and password (these can be anything you like). Account Image 5
  7. Click Add New Worker and the page will refresh with your worker details, note both the worker login and worker password down. you will need both of these later. Account Image 7

Stage 3: Install CPU Miner

Before you install the GPU Mining Application you want to make sure you are running off the latest Nvidia Drivers.
  1. Go to the Cuda miner page on BitCoin talk and download the latest package.
  2. Create a folder in C:/ called GPUminer. Install Image 1
  3. Once Downloaded, unzip the file, go into to cduaminer-2014-02-28 then into x86 and drag the contents of the zip file into the GPUminer folder. By the time you're doing this the date of 2014-02-28 may have changed to a newer version, that's good news!) Install Image 2
  4. Open up notepad and insert the following text, you want to replace the worker login and the worker password with the values you noted down earlier. cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://uk.suremine.com:5555 -u USERACCOUNT.WORKERUSER -p WORKERPASS pause Install Image 3
  5. Select File > Save as then save the file to c:/GPUmine as gpuminer.bat. Install Image 4

Stage 4: Mine

  1. From the C:/GPUminer double click gpuminer.bat this will open a window. after a few minutes you should start seeing accepted transactions. All accepted transactions are good. Mine Image 1
Debugging

Performance Tuning

If you are looking to get the most out of your Nvidia card you can update gpuminer.bat with config from the Nvidia Comparison Table

Any type of advice or help would be gladly accepted, for a brand new cryptocoin user and miner.

I chose to start using cryptocoins today, as I'd been seeing them around for a while but had yet to join in. To get things straight, I am foetus tier new to this, and still very confused. Would gladly accept advice and I do have a few questions that could hopefully be answered.
Q1) My GPU is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti, will this be good enough to get a decent minerate off of and is there anyway I can improve the rate of mining.
Q2) I seemed to have been mining in this pool for a while (~1hour or so) yet I have yet to make an inkling of a 0.00001 of a vert coin, or any sign of one being added to my wallet. Is this normal, and when could I expect some sort of vertcoin?
Q3) How likely is it that vertcoin will rise in value, and is it worth saving up and investing for a while and hoping for bitcoin levels of increase in value?
Q4) What does it mean when I't says in the cmd.exe of the cudaminer 1-stratum detected new block and 2-accepted (numbenumber [e.g 1/1]) 100.00% yay!! And why is it increasing in number as I progress.
Thanks for any possible advice you can give, it would be much appreciated. p.s sorry for poor formatting, it's my second post on reddit, bit of a spring chicken when it comes to posting as well.

CUDAMiner Optimization Basics

I've posted this information a lot recently to new miners with NVIDIA cards. This subreddit seemed like the right home for it, and hopefully this is will serve as a helpful starting place to clarify the very basics and get people started.
As always, watch your GPU core temperatures closely. Lower hash rates correlate to lower operating temperatures. Play with these features to adjust your hash rate according to the load your GPU can handle. For example, one of my cards has better cooling than the other, so I run them at different hash rates to keep them both in the temperature range that I'm comfortable with.
Getting Started (Windows Environment):
  1. Download and install the latest NVIDIA Drivers.
  2. Download and extract the latest version of cudaMiner (SEE BITCOINTALK - CUDAMINER LINK BELOW) .
  3. Create a new text file in the same directory as cudaminer.exe (x32 or x64, depending on your system).
  4. Open text file and enter your configuration into the new batch file (See below for samples. Change settings to match your specific set-up):
  5. Change text file extension to .bat
  6. Execute batch file (not the executable).
  7. ???
  8. To exit, CTRL+C to break, wait, then Y to exit OR press the "Red X"; If the the command window closes immediately, add "pause" to the end of the batch script to view the error.
  9. If running x64 version, try x32 version and compare results.
  10. !!!
  11. Profit
Common Errors
Error Possible Cause
Command prompt window flashes and closes. Usually indicates bad syntax or attempting to launch executable. Review batch script settings. Add "pause" to end of batch script to view error.
Stratum Authentication Failed / "HTTP Request failed; No Error" Indicates connection issue. Review server address & user credentials.
Memory error / Result doesn't validate on CPU / Error 30 (Indicates launch configuration is invalid/not optimal. Change launch configuration flags. Update drivers.
"json_rpc_call failed" You are launching the executable; you cannot do this. Create and launch using batch script instead.
:::Sample Configurations (EDIT TO MATCH YOUR SPECIFIC CREDENTIALS & GPU SETTINGS) :::Single GPU ::SingleGPU.bat cudaminer.exe -i 1 -C 1 -m 1 -H 1 -l auto -o stratum+tcp://YOUR.POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O USER.WORKER:WORKERPW :::Multi GPU, Multi Command Prompt ::GPU0.bat (Address/Login for Standard Pool Mining, 1st GPU) cudaminer.exe -d 0 -i 1 -C 1 -m 1 -H 1 -l auto -o stratum+tcp://YOUR.POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O USER.WORKER:WORKERPW ::GPU1.bat (Address/Login for P2Pool Mining, 2nd GPU) cudaminer.exe -d 1 -i 1 -C 1 -m 1 -H 1 -l K4x32 -o stratum+http://YOUR.P2POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O WALLETADDRESS:ANYPW :::Multi GPU, Single Command Prompt ::DoubleGPU.bat cudaminer.exe -d 0,1 -H 1,1 -i 1,1 -l K3x9,K4x32 -C 1,1 -o stratum+tcp://YOUR.POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O USER.WORKER:WORKERPW 
Fundamental Flags:
  • FLAGS ARE CASE SENSITIVE
Setting -flag (Options) Description
cudaminer.exe N/A Call to execute cudaMiner
Specify Device -d (Any, counts from 0) Only for multi-GPU configurations: create multiple .bat files or use comma separated values.
Interactive Mode -i (0/1) When enabled, it reduces GPU utilization and hash rate to allow for computer use during mining
Enable Texture Cache -C (0/1/2) (Disabled, 1-D Caching, 2-D Caching) may increase or reduce hash rate, available according to your compute capability - check WIKI CUDA LINK BELOW
Memory Batching -m (0/1) Consolidates hash work into a single memory block and can lead to lower memory usage. Is implicitly enabled with Texture Caching.
Hash Parallel -H (0/1/2) (CPU Only, CPU Assist, GPU Only) determines how much work will be shared by the CPU. Defaults to GPU Only (2) if not specified.
Launch Configuration^ -l (auto/G/GBxW) Autotune, autotune for card generation, or specify particular setting. Defaults to autotune if not specified.
Server URL -o Address:Port Full URL of the mining server you wish to connect to.
Device Credentials -O User:Pass Username (or Username.Workername for pools) & password pair for the mining server for your device.
Debug-Benchmark Mode& -D --benchmark Verbose output to view block/warp chart and test a configuration.
  • NOTE ^ : This option is they key to tuning your hash rate and resulting GPU temperature. Choosing "auto" will enable autotuning, allowing cudaMiner to choose the best config. Choosing just "G," card generation code, will autotune for that specific card generation. "GBxW" is the specific setting you choose for the card where "BLOCK" is the row #, "WARP" is the Column number in autotune chart. Your BLOCKxWARP value should not exceed your maximum core configuration (WIKI GPU LIST BELOW), otherwise cudaMiner will crash/return error. For best results, the BLOCKxWARP value should be an exact multiple of your core config.
-For example NVIDIA GT 750M, Kepler card, row 4, column 32 is K4x32 (4x32=128). This is exactly 1/3 of and does not exceed the max core config of 384). 
  • NOTE & : Autotuning reported hashrates are not always accurate, but you can use the results in the benchmark table to choose the ballpark hash rate you desire. If you define a setting or allow it to complete the autotuning, it will then begin the benchmark and show you the average hashrate once you end the sesion (CTRL+C). Before closing the command prompt, you can scroll back up and save a screenshot of the block table. Type "Y" after ending to close the program. Remember to turn OFF the flag -D --benchmark after you are done. This is benchmark mode; cudaMiner will not connect to the pool until you remove this flag

PC GPU's Can Mine Cryptocurrencies when not Gaming. Consoles Sit Useless

You've invested money building a slick gaming PC? Unbeknownst to you, you've probably inadvertently built a great PC for mining Crypto currencies like Dogecoin, Litecoin, Darkcoin, Vertcoin, and thousands of others.
You can convert electricity into coins, and if you want you can trade these coins for Bitcoin or even USD.
New coins are launched everyday and during the first few hours/days of a coin launch it is easy to acquire a large share. If you do your research you can potentially get a large share of a coin that will build value.
For reference a single R9 270 card can produce ~1000 Dogecoins a day. Not much in USD value, but an easy way to dip your feet into a new hobby that utilizes hardware you've already invested in. You can mine whenever you aren't gaming.
I've been a PC buildegamer my whole life. I got into Crypto mining this January, and at first I was nervous about damaging components by running them so hard continuously, at rather high temperatures (80C). Well its been 6 months and there are no hardware stability issues. 6 Cards running at ~80C 24/7 for 6months. They run flawlessly. Thermal paste could probably be re-applied now. The point is, if you have a clean PC and know how to troubleshoot hardware you aren't going to damage your computer or graphics cards. Its been argued that gaming stresses the GPU's more because the load is changing high-low, whereas mining is constant high.
Anyways you want to know:
How can I start mining?
There are so many coins where do I start?
Dogecoin is the easiest coin to start mining (not necessarily most profitable) so we will start there and after you learn with Doge you can expand to new horizons.
Register at your pool. Create a worker. Go to the "getting started page" and copy the host "stratum+tcp://stratum.rapidhash.net" and port number "3333" and then you can enter your workepassword details and start mining. You can then carefully adjust your parameters to increase your mining speed. Increasing intensity too high can crash your card. Check out the configuration settings in this guide for approximately optimal settings for your GPU
If this sounds like a lot of work then this might not be the hobby for you. If you are interested about maximizing the potential of your gaming hardware and want to enter a new and engaging hobby, this might be the right place to start. Its also another thing that PC gamers can do that Consoles really fail at.
Now get into those mines and start digging!

Dogecoin made me a better person!

I am just 12 hours into my dogecoin experience and I have to say this crypto-family has made me a better person. Let me explain how the unique magic of dogecoin has improved my life, much so, wow.
First, like many of you on reddit I am decent with computers. However I switched to Mac OS X for college as i was creating multi-media. I never knew the OS like i did for windows until dogecoin came around. I also liked the idea of crypto-currency but never got into bitcoin because.... actually I don't really know why, but dogecoin was way to inviting so i decided to try it.
I have run both windows and mac on my computer now so i started up my wallet and synced it! WOW! only a couple hours to sync compared to bitcoin, where i watched my buddy wait days for his wallet to sync.
Then I have an NVIDIA card so from some research I got cuda miner going and made some batch scripts and got into my first pool.
SUCH NICE to see doge coins accumulate while mining together. I am now hooked. However, I do like MAC OS X better now so how can i get this going on MAC?
I used some programs like asteroid and mac miner but hashrate was too low. Now I was forced to make my first shell script. This may make some laugh but I jumped to the moon when it worked! Now i have CPUminer and CUDAminer working on my mac side with such success. I am having the time of my life (online).
I cashed out some dogecoin and now I register with tipbot to try tipping people. Someone reply so I can send my first tip!
I WANT to tip, that's another thing strange about this whole community.
All in all, my computer hackzors elite skills have reached new heights and my altruism too. So can't understand, wont much need to, such nice confusion.
TOOOO THE MOOON!
P.S. I can probably help other MAC OS X NVIDA people out with mining.

How to Nvidia GPU mine PotCoin on Windows

I thought I would put together another tutorial for anyone looking to get started with mining PotCoin's. its a bit of a plug for my own mining pool pot.surmine.com, but you're free to mine of another pool, the process is pretty much the same.
Once broken down into individual parts the whole process is quite simple and should only take less than half an hour to start mining.
The process can be broken down into the following stages:
Stage 1: Setup PotCoin Wallet
Step 1. Go to potcoin.info , click download wallet, then Download Now and save to your PC.
Step 2. Once Downloaded, launch the application and you should be presented with the PotCoin Setup Wizard. Setup Image 1
Step 3. Click Next and leave the Destination folder ( you can customize the destination if you like) Setup Image 2
Step 4. Click Install. Setup Image 3
Step 5. Once the package is installed click Next then and Finish Setup Image 4
Step 6. On launch you may get a firewall error, Click Allow access. (Only enable Public networks is you have to ) Setup Image 5
Step 7. The PotCoin wallet is now running. It may show "No block source available" in the bottom left corner, give it 15 mins and it should connect to the network, if not check your firewall settings. Once you see "Synchronizing with network" in the bottom left you know you're good. Setup Image 6
Step 8. Click the Receive tab and write down your PotCoin address, this is your address to receive coins. Setup Image 7
Stage 2: Create Mining Pool account.
There are multiple pools you can choose from but as I run a mining pool I might as well plug my own pot.suremine.com , If you would like to use another the following steps will work with another pool.
Step 1. Point your browser at pot.suremine.com, in the top right hand corner of the page click "Guest" then "Sign Up". Account Image 1
Step 2. Complete the registration form, make sure you choose a good password that is unique to this poll, write down the PIN, as if you lose it you lose your coins! Account Image 2
Step 3. Check your email and Click the email verification link, if you can't see the email check your spam folder.
Step 4. Login to your account and Click "My Account" then click "Edit Account" On the Left Hand Nav. Enter your PIN and click unlock. This will create a confirmation email you will need to click. Account Image 3
Step 5. Check your email and Click the email verification link, if you can't see the email check your spam folder.
Account Image4
Step 6. On the Left Hand Navigation bar click "My Account" then "My Workers". Enter a worker name and password (these can be anything you like). Account Image 5
Step 7. Click Add New Worker and the page will refresh with your worker details, note both the worker login and worker password down. you will need both of these later. Account Image 6
Stage 3: Install CPU Miner
Before you install the GPU Mining Application you want to make sure you are running off the latest Nvidia Drivers.
Step 1. Go to the Cuda miner page on BitCoin talk and download the latest package.
Step 2. Create a folder in C:/ called GPUminer. Install Image 1
Step 3. Once Downloaded, unzip the file, go into to cduaminer-2014-02-28 then into x86 and drag the contents of the zip file into the GPUminer folder. By the time you're doing this the date of 2014-02-28 may have changed to a newer version, that's good news!) Install Image 2
Step 4. Open up notepad and insert the following text, you want to replace the worker login and the worker password with the values you noted down earlier.
cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://uk.suremine.com:3333 -u USERACCOUNT.WORKERUSER -p WORKERPASS pause 
Install Image 3
Step5. Select File > Save as then save the file to c:/GPUmine as gpuminer.bat Install Image 4
Stage 4: Mine
Step 1. From the C:/GPUminer double click gpuminer.bat this will open a window. after a few minutes you should start seeing accepted transactions. All accepted transactions are good. Mine Image 1
Debugging When you launch gpuminer.bat if you see the following error it means you need to update your Nvidia drivers: Error Image 1

Informative post about Feathercoin

Seeing how this Subreddit is lacking any sort of info on Feathercoins and the lack of community support we have, I have decided to start a post that would inform newbies about Feathercoin and seasoned vets on the best places to trade.
Feathercoin:
It is a Crypto Currency that was started by Peter Bushnell. It is a clone of Litecoin (This coin was inspired by Bitcoin). The Feathercoin network generates coins at a decreasing rate. It will generate about 336 million coins which is 16 times more than that of Bitcoin and 4 times more than that of Litecoin. Currently about 25 million coins have been generated.
Network hashrates, Pools, Solo mining:
Currently a mid end system comprising of 7870 or 7970 will get you abot 400 to 700 kh/s. That means that in a given day you will be mining about 7 to 13 Feathercoins on current difficulty level. However If you mine alone that is solo mining, the probability of you finding a block is hard and it may take a while before you make a coin. To counter this people have started making pools to increase the chances of finding blocks. There are many pools that allow you to have multiple workers so you can setup multiple systems and mine at your leisure. Currently some of the popular pools are:
http://www.fcpool.com/
http://give-me-coins.com/
http://www.wemineftc.com/
http://fc.ltcoin.net/
https://ftc.d2.cc/
For a full list of mining pools: http://coinpools.sdfg.org/ftc
It is highly recommended to join a pool to make mining profitable. Look at the pools posted above, look at their fee structure, their payout and make an informed decision on which pool to join.
Hardware and Mining:
Feathercoin utilizes scrypt based mining that is you can use your GPU (the Graphics card inside your system) to mine them. AMD Cards are highly recommended as they output higher hashrates as compared to Nvidia. To give you an idea of the difference a 7870 ghz edition mines at about 375 kh/s whereas a Nvidia 780ti would mine at about 224 to 300 kh/s. If you are seriously considering in investing in this venture it would be best to buy a rig that supports 6 GPU's and buy either the 7950 or the 280x as they have considerably higher hash rates and are affordable to say the least. Something one should be aware of is that mining produces a lot of heat as your system is basically running at full capacity and therefore needs a lot of cooling. People usually build rigs in the open (no case) and use household fans to cool them. Also another thing that is common is to use PCIe risers as they allow greater spacing between GPU cards and effectively help in dissipating heat. Mining uses a lot of electricity so it is best to use a schedule to mine or if electricity is cheap then 6 7950's running 24 hours a day would cost you about 12 to 18 dollars in electricity a month, maybe more depending on where you live. The software to use for mining are Cgminer (https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=6925.0), guiminer scrypt (http://forum.feathercoin.com/index.php?topic=961.0) and cudaminer for Nvidia cards. I would advise against Cpu mining as that is not profitable and will simply weigh you down. Invest 250 to 350 dollars in a good AMD GPU and you will be mining much more effectively.
Trading:
There are many places where one can trade Feathercoins but only a few of them offer FTC/USD exchange. Btc-e (https://btc-e.com/exchange/ftc_btc). Is one of the biggest cryptocoin trading exchanges, it does not offer USD exchange for Feathercoins as of yet but allows you to exchange for Bitcoins. Crypto-trade (https://www.crypto-trade.com/trade/ftc_btc), this trading exchange allows you to trade against the USD making it more favourable to miners however there is currently a lack of volume for FTC as of writing. Other exchanges like Cryptsy, Bter and coins-e are all good but they are heavily dependent on Bitcoins and Litecoins for now.
My thoughts
Feathercoin is fairly new and its gaining momentum, once big exchanges start listing it against the USD, the venture will become more profitable. For now it is advisable to mine as many as you can and sit on them till value improves or if you have a mining rig that is mining at 22000 kh/s (this will get you about 500 feathercoins a day) then mine the shit out of them and trade them for Btc for profit although I would recommend against this as it it reduces the value of feathercoin. Many exchanges allow you to deposit money via international wire transfers however the minimum is 2000 dollars so keep that in mind before investing real money into this venture. There are alternatives like paypal and okpay that are also accepted but not a lot of people have accounts on those so signup for a website that suits your situation.
One last ting we all need to do is spread awareness about Feathercoin, It is a miners coin and the difficulty right now makes it so much more interesting to mine. I will update this page with more information and will answer questions if any to the best of my knowledge. Happy mining

EDIT : I realized some of you might have NVIDIA GPU's and are hesitant on getting AMD. Never fear for there is a solution. If you have a motherboard that supports two or more GPU's that is you have more than one PCIe slots than follow these instructions:
If you intend to game on your system while you are mining then put the NVIDIA card in PCI slot one and buy an AMD card and put it in slot 2. Now install the drivers in the order Nvidia first reboot and then Amd second reboot. You do not need to plug in HDMI to your AMD card just leave it as it is. Now download gpu miner scrypt and select from the list your AMD card and start mining, its that easy. At night if you want to squeeze in more kh/s then run cudaminer and let it mine alongside your AMD. The best part about this is that you can be mining 24/7 on your AMD card and you will not experience any system slow down while gaming or watching movies. Remember to have atleast two workers workers created so you can mine parallel. If you already have an NVIDIA card then just install your AMD card and install AMD drivers and reboot and run guiminer scrypt. At times you might run into the issue of guiminer not starting, just delete it and re install it and it should work fine in 98% of the cases. This is for those who do not want to invest in a completely new system and would rather use their existing system. You can use cgminer as well but remember the order in cgminer starts from 0 not 1 so if NVIDIA is in slot 1 then it is -d0 -g0 and AMD will be -d1 -g1

iwtwe's Total Noob Starting Guide. much noob..such help...very inform...wow

NOTE for seasoned miners, if I have made a mistake or if there is an easier way of configuring the miners or if I left something out, please do not hesitate to contact me about it so that I can edit this post accordingly. Let's help new people out so that the community will continue to grow! many thanks...wow
Hey you. Yes you with the eyes. Are you new to the world of crypto coin mining? Have no idea what a dogecoin is? Want to start mining dogecoins today and just can't seem to figure it out or get it to work?
Well have I got much help for you! About a week ago, I finally started mining after two painful days of trying to get it to work. Basically, I was a total noob and didn't really understand anything about mining in general. Because of the joy mining has brought me so far I am writing this guide to hopefully help out new members or other total noobs.
It's safe to say I've been bitten by the dogecoin bug. I started out with a measly 50 khash/sec and made approximately 10 coins in 12 hours. * My reaction when I finally got my miner to work * Reaction cont.
Now I'm up to 500 khash/sec after figuring out all the 'nuts and bolts' of mining. wow...such optimization...many hash
I'll break this guide down into three categories: Detailed Info, CGMiner Config for AMD Cards, and lastly, CUDAMiner for Nvidia cards.
Detailed Info very words....wow
A dogecoin is a type of crypto currency that is traded against bitcoins in a crypto currency marketplace.
You can earn dogecoins by contributing hashes (computing power) to a mining pool to help find a block.
There are a certain amount of dogecoins that will be released. These coins are released in the form of a block ranging in quantity of 1-1,000,000 doge coins. It is worth noting that the total quantity of coins per block will soon be halved to just 500,000.
Things you will need to mine: * dogecoin wallet * computer with a GPU * an account with a mining pool * a worker for the mining pool * mining software
1) [http://dogecoin.com](Download the doge coin wallet and install it)
2) Turn off your computer's anti-virus software and allow the dogecoin wallet through your fire wall. *VERY IMPORTANT
3) Run the dogecoin wallet and let it sync with the network. It is important to note that this can take a short amount of time or even up to 12 hours to complete. Just be patient. Use that time to research mining more.

Once your wallet has synced with the network, it is time to sign up with a mining pool. Think of a mining pool as a virtual supercomputer that is made up of many smaller computers connected together. This pool or 'super computer' allows for greater processing power. More processing power = greater chance of the pool finding a block.

Finding a pool
"Dear shibes!
Be careful when running Java and/or entering the usepass on sites. There are phishing sites out there that imitate other pools to steal your data.
When accessing a mining pool, DO NOT follow any redirects, always access the site directly and check the URL. For extra security, make sure you're using https://
Don't run Java!" <--- not my words, but very good warning to take into consideration
1) Perform a quick google search or use the links in the side bar to find a pool!
2) For this example I will be using https://fast-pool.com/index.php (I in no way, shape, or form endorse this particular pool. It was the first one I clicked. Feel free to use any pool you want, as the sites are all the same.)
3) You're going to want to click "Sign Up" in the menu on the left of the page. After clicking, sign up for an account.
4) After signing up for an account, log into your account. (For the sake of my example my mining pool site username will be "Shibe")
5) Now we will create a pool worker. Click "My Workers" in the menu on the left side of the page.
6) Choose a worker name and worker password and click submit. *NOTE THE WORKER NAME IS NOT THE SAME AS YOUR ACCOUNT USERNAME
7) For the sake of the example my workers name is "worker1" and the password is "x". *Note capitalization matters so don't forget it.
Now we will download a mining software and configure it to mine.
Before we do that I want to clarify what the info we will be using to configure our miner is.
1) Click "Getting Started"
In my example pool under getting started you will see this in "Step 3":
  1. Configure your miner.
    Settings for Stratum (recommended): STRATUM: stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com PORT: 3336 Username: Weblogin.Worker Password: Worker Password
If you use a command-line miner, type:
./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3336 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password
The above explained:
Final Step Regarding Mining Pools
We need to add our payment address to our mining pool account so that we can receive the dogecoins we help mine.
1) Click "Edit Account" on the menu on the left side of the page.
2) Scroll down until you see "PAYMENT ADDRESS".
3) Minimize the webpage and go to your doge coin wallet.
4) In your dogecoin wallet click the "Much Receive" tab.
5) You will see the Label "Default" with an "Address" composed of a long random string of letters and numbers.
6) Right-click that string of random numbers and letters and select "copy address".
7) Maximize the pools webpage again and paste that address into "PAYMENT ADDRESS".
8) Enter you pin and click "Update Account".
WE'RE NOW READY TO DOWNLOAD A MINER such hooray....many celebrate
IF YOU HAVE AN AMD CARD, THIS SECTION IS FOR YOU!
*Note AMD cards are much better for mining than Nvidia. It's just the way it is!
We will be using cgminer to mine dogecoins with our AMD cards.
While there are newer versions of cgminer avaliable you're going to want to download cgminer version 3.7.2 because any higher versions do not support GPU mining.
1) Make sure your AMD drivers are up to date.
2) This version of cgminer is now only available on gitub at this url. The option to download the zip file in on the bottom left right side column.
3) After downloading the file, extract its contents to a folder on your desktop.
4) Before we do that go to Control Panel Folder Options View select "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" and click apply.
BEFORE YOU TRY THE BELOW, RUN THE APPLICATION AND INPUT THE SERVER URL:PORT (stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3336) "enter" USERNAME (Shibe.worker1) "enter" and PASSWORD (x) "enter".
*If the application runs without giving you errors hit the [S] and select "create config file" and hit enter.
5) If that didn't work, we will make a .conf file that allows cgminer to run correctly.
6) Now go to the folder you extracted cgminer into.
7) Right-click anywhere in the folder and select "New" Text document.
8) Right-click the new text document you just created and select "Edit".
9) Copy and paste the following into that new text document leaving no space at the top and enter the appropriate pool information accordingly. Noticed I used my STRATUM info from my example.
IF YOU HAVE ONLY ONE GPU USE THE BELOW
{ "pools" : [ { "url" : "stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3336", "user" : "Shibe.worker1", "pass" : "x" } ] , "intensity" : "10", "vectors" : "1", "worksize" : "256", "kernel" : "scrypt", "lookup-gap" : "0", "thread-concurrency" : "0", "shaders" : "0", "gpu-engine" : "0-0", "gpu-fan" : "0-0", "gpu-memclock" : "0", "gpu-memdiff" : "0", "gpu-powertune" : "0", "gpu-vddc" : "0.000", "temp-cutoff" : "95", "temp-overheat" : "0", "temp-target" : "0", "api-mcast-port" : "4028", "api-port" : "4028", "expiry" : "120", "gpu-dyninterval" : "7", "gpu-platform" : "0", "gpu-threads" : "1", "hotplug" : "5", "log" : "5", "no-pool-disable" : true, "queue" : "0", "scan-time" : "30", "scrypt" : true,
IF YOU HAVE TWO GPU's IN CROSSFIRE USE THE BELOW CODE
{ "pools" : [ { "url" : "stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3336", "user" : "Shibe.worker1", "pass" : "x" } ] , "intensity" : "10,10", "vectors" : "1,1", "worksize" : "256,256", "kernel" : "scrypt,scrypt", "lookup-gap" : "0,0", "thread-concurrency" : "0,0", "shaders" : "0,0", "gpu-engine" : "0-0,0-0", "gpu-fan" : "0-0,0-0", "gpu-memclock" : "0,0", "gpu-memdiff" : "0,0", "gpu-powertune" : "0,0", "gpu-vddc" : "0.000,0.000", "temp-cutoff" : "95,95", "temp-overheat" : "0,0", "temp-target" : "0,0", "api-mcast-port" : "4028", "api-port" : "4028", "expiry" : "120", "gpu-dyninterval" : "7", "gpu-platform" : "0", "gpu-threads" : "1", "hotplug" : "5", "log" : "5", "no-pool-disable" : true, "queue" : "0", "scan-time" : "30", "scrypt" : true, "temp-hysteresis" : "3", "shares" : "0", "kernel-path" : "/uslocal/bin" }
10) Click save-as Save as type, "All files" and rename the document to: cgminer.conf
11) Click save and run program.
12) If it still doesn't work try changing the intensity to a lower number or changing the workspace value to 64.
Everything should work now. If I have made any errors or if there are easier ways of doing this please let me know so that I can edit this. This is just what worked for me.
IF YOU HAVE A NVIDIA CARD THIS SECTION IS FOR YOU!
Before we do anything, go to Control Panel Folder Options View select "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" and click apply.
We will be using Cudaminer version 2013-07-13 https://mega.co.nz/#!hVREmSKA!VaGCdh3Ykfp-e8IOTFWaEXJGMa1JNVqPcdxawkCPRSE
1) Download Cudaminer version 2013-07-13 from that link and extract the contents to a folder on the desktop.
2) Open that folder and look for the Application.
3) When you've found the location of the Application it's-self you're going to right-click anywhere in the folder and select "New" Text document.
8) Right-click the new text document you just created and select "Edit".
9) Copy and paste this to the top line of the blank text document leaving no space in front and input the appropriate url, username and password from whatever pool you use. (I will be using my example pool info stated earlier in this post):
cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3336 -u Shibe.worker1 -p x
10) Click save-as Save as type, "All files" and rename the document to: Launch.bat
11) Click save.
12) Double click the Launch.bat file you just created to run the program.
13) Wait for the program to auto-tune your settings and then it will start mining automatically.
Everything should work now. If I have made any errors or if there are easier ways of doing this please let me know so that I can edit this. This is just what worked for me.

absolute noob, where should I start?

Hi, I recently realized that I have (what I believe is) a decent amount of gpu power running idle during my daily routine and that I could perhaps mine bitcoins with it. My PC has an intel i7 and two nvidia geforce GT 650M graphics cards. I tried getting started with GUIminer, but then found out CUDA miners are better for Nvidia cards(?) That being said, the furthest I got with the cudaminer was creating a BAT file that ended up slowing my computer to an unreasonable crawl. I'm not sure where I should go from here to get started. I have decent tech knowledge but I feel a lot of the stuff involved is above my head. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

How to Nvidia GPU mine CannaCoin on Windows

I thought would put together another tutorial for anyone looking to get started with mining CannaCoin's. it is a bit of a plug for my own mining pool ccn.surmine.com, but you're free to mine of another pool, the process is pretty much the same.
Once broken down into individual parts the whole process is quite simple and should only take less than half an hour to start mining.
The process can be broken down into the following stages:

Stage 1: Setup CannaCoin Wallet

  1. Go to [cannacoin.cc](cannacoin.cc) , click on download wallet then Download and select the windows client and save to your PC. Setup Image 1
  2. Open the CannaCoin wallet you downloaded and browse to the Cannacoin-QT folder. Setup Image 2
  3. Drag the contents into the Cannacoin folder you created on your C drive. Setup Image 3
  4. Double Click cannacoin-qt, you will asked to allow access to through your firewall, click "Allow access". Setup Image 4
  5. Your CannaCoin wallet is now running. It may show "No block source available" in the bottom left corner, give it 15 mins and it should connect to the network, if not check your firewall settings. Once you see "Synchronizing with network" in the bottom left you know you are good. Setup Image 5
  6. Click the Receive tab and write down your CannaCoin address, this is your address to receive coins. Setup Image 6

Stage 2: Create Mining Pool account.

There are multiple pools you can choose from but as I run a mining pool I might as well plug my own ccn.suremine.com , If you would like to use another the following steps will work with another pool.
  1. Point your browser at ccn.suremine.com, in the top right hand corner of the page click "Guest" then "Sign Up". Account Image 1
  2. Complete the registration form, make sure you choose a good password that is unique to this poll, write down the PIN, as if you lose it you lose your coins! Account Image 2
  3. Check your email and Click the email verification link, if you can't see the email check your spam folder.
  4. Login to your account and Click "My Account" then click "Edit Account" On the Left Hand Nav. Enter your PIN and click unlock. This will create a confirmation email you will need to click. Account Image 3
  5. Check your email and Click the email verification link, if you can't see the email check your spam folder.
    • Set your payment address ( the one you copied down when you created your wallet).
    • Set your Donation Percentage ( this helps keep the pool running).
    • Set your automatic payout threshold ( low to start with to see the funds come through).
    • Insert your pin again.
    • Click Update Account. Account Image 4
  6. On the Left Hand Navigation bar click "My Account" then "My Workers". Enter a worker name and password (these can be anything you like). Account Image 5
  7. Click Add New Worker and the page will refresh with your worker details, note both the worker login and worker password down. you will need both of these later. Account Image 7

Stage 3: Install CPU Miner

Before you install the GPU Mining Application you want to make sure you are running off the latest Nvidia Drivers.
  1. Go to the Cuda miner page on BitCoin talk and download the latest package.
  2. Create a folder in C:/ called GPUminer. Install Image 1
  3. Once Downloaded, unzip the file, go into to cduaminer-2014-02-28 then into x86 and drag the contents of the zip file into the GPUminer folder. By the time you're doing this the date of 2014-02-28 may have changed to a newer version, that's good news!) Install Image 2
  4. Open up notepad and insert the following text, you want to replace the worker login and the worker password with the values you noted down earlier. cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://uk.suremine.com:6666 -u USERACCOUNT.WORKERUSER -p WORKERPASS pause Install Image 3
  5. Select File > Save as then save the file to c:/GPUmine as gpuminer.bat. Install Image 4

Stage 4: Mine

  1. From the C:/GPUminer double click gpuminer.bat this will open a window. after a few minutes you should start seeing accepted transactions. All accepted transactions are good. Mine Image 1
Debugging

Performance Tuning

If you are looking to get the most out of your Nvidia card you can update gpuminer.bat with config from the Nvidia Comparison Table

Mining Instructions Made Simple

© Author - Henry - 11 April 2014. All rights reserved.
If you are interested in mining crypto currencies, here are the settings for bfgminer (3.10.0), cgminer (3.7.2), cudaminer (2013-12-01), and cpuminer (2.3.2) for Windows OS. Of course, these settings are for pool mining.
Steps: • Download and Install Wallet - Bitcoin, litecoin, dogecoin, peercoin etc. on your regular PC. • Encrypt and backup Wallet - get in the habit of backing up your wallet. • Join a mining pool of your choice. • Create pool worker at your mining pool site. • Acquire or build mining machine - pay attention to specs, power supply, graphics card etc. • Download and Install mining software - bfgminer, cgminer, etc. • Configure your mining worker - See detailed configuration below. • Mine away.
It's always easier to do the configurations below in a batch file because you could then create a shortcut for them in your startup folder. However, here are both the command line entries and the batch file entries. The timeout instruction in the batch file is used to delay the program for a number of seconds. Therefore, you can vary the time to what suits you or leave it out all together. Remember to replace the personal information portion of the commands.
Cgminer configuration - Scrypt mining dogecoin with fast-pool pool (GPU mining)
cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum.fast-pool.com:3001 -u mloverboyu.1 -p x --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 13 -g 1 -w 256 • You may vary threaded-concurrency and -I (intensity) depending on your hardware.
Batch File:
@echo off timeout /t 240 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 cd "c:\users\harry\desktop\cgminer-3.7.2-windows" cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum.fast-pool.com:3001 -u mloverboyu.1 -p x --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 13 -g 1 -w 256
Cpuminer configuration - Scrypt mining dogecoin with dogepool pool (CPU mining)
minerd.exe --algo=scrypt --url=stratum+tcp://us.dogepool.net:2222 --userpass=mloverboyu.1:x --threads=8 • The number of threads equals the number of cores the processor has.
Batch File:
@echo off timeout /t 180 cd "c:\users\harry\desktop\pooler-cpuminer-2.3.3-win64" minerd.exe --algo=scrypt --url=stratum+tcp://us.dogepool.net:2222 --userpass=mloverboyu.1:x --threads=8

I'm making easy to follow, screenshot-filled instructions for how to get started mining cryptocurrencies

I started mining Dogecoin last week (I wish I had started last month, though) and while my hashing power isn't amazing, there is something I wanted to do to give to the awesome community :)
I spent a good two or three days trying to piece together info from various forums and different sites for how to get everything going with cudaminer and cgminer, and that's just way too long. I nearly gave up (in fact, that's why I gave up years ago trying to figure out how to mine for Bitcoins....go me) and I can imagine that someone with less expertise than me would have an even harder time.
So, what I did was made a simple website with basic instructions and screenshots for how to get started mining. I don't have a huge amount of content up, but I finally finished the basics for Dogecoin today, including how to figure out if your GPU is Nvidia or ATI, how to mine with both cudaminer and cgminer and how to get the dogecoin wallet installed, select a pool and a few other basic things.
My intention is to continue to add content to the site for other cryptocurrencies over the coming weeks, and improve the look/layout of it as well. My goal is to make every single instruction as basic and clear as possible, so that anyone--even those with limited computer knowledge--can get started mining.
There are lots of other resources for more advanced knowledge and configuration, and I'm sure I'll get into that as time goes on, but for now I just want to keep it basic so that folks have an easy way to get into this awesome new world.

Total noob stuck trying to mine doge. [help]

Hello,
I've gotten up and running with GUIminer which mines bitcoins no problem, but I want to mine Doge, not Bit. I keep getting this error:
CURL return value = 52 "Communications error connecting to the RPC server"
I've triple checked that all my miner information is correct (user_name.miner_name not just miner_name).
I was using the suchcoins.com pool and figured maybe the server was down or something, so I switched to dogepool.net. Still the same error.
I tried running CUDAminer alone without GUIminer, but same results...
I'm stumped on what to do here...
Here's my specs:

Also I had a few other questions about mining: 1) I know ASIC's won't work on scrypt coins, but will ASIC's like AntMiner work for other SHA-256 coins? Or just bitcoins?
2) A lot of the tutorials I've seen have very short simple passwords for their workers. Some even just one letter. Why do workers need a password at all?
Thank you!

Minning issue?

Hello i am new here and this is my first post. So please don't hesitate to say if i have put this topic in wrong place or formated it wrong.
So i recently to get in to bitcoins and alternative cryptocurrencies and i thought i might give VertCoin a shoot.
I have mined some coins before as bitcoin, FlutterCoin and DogeCoin. Just for fun and not for profit ^ I used Cudaminer beacuse i have A nVidia graphic card. As usual i downloaded the wallet and registered to a pool this https://vtcpool.co.uk/index.php I did as the instruction said and setup the url and pass and so on ... "To get started, point your miner at stratrum+tcp://p2pool.vtcpool.co.uk:9171 with your username set to your VTC address and any password."
But i thought it was wierd to use your VTC adress as username. I have never seen before that you should use your wallet adress as username. But i thought what ever i am just noob and followed the instructions.I saw that the pages said i should use cGminer but for nVidia user Cudaminer is better so i just adjusted the code so it worked on CudaMiner.
Code looks like this cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://p2pool.vtcpool.co.uk:9171 -O VbcqKse4rxU5FTsZNaxLsV8ht421WurSB3:123
I know it is not anything fancy but i am new here so whatever.
However when i use this in the run.bat i get crazy amount of shares like 20 "good" shares in 10 seconds. Think i got like 4000 shares in 10 hours is this normal in VertCoin? i have a Geforce 550 ti graphic card.
My question is am i doing it right? When do i get my VertCoins? I have also read that only cgMiner can mine Vertcoins, but then how can my CudaMiner work?
I would be very happy if i could get some anwsears.

cgminer with Nvidia

I am trying to get cgminer working with my nvidia n560 card. Everytime I launch cgminer it states that there was no device detected. I've followed this http://www.patrickmin.com/linux/tip.php?name=bitcoin_litecoin&lang=en#cgminer tutorial.
I am also trying to get cudaminer to work as well. Keep getting the error
./configure.sh configure: error: cannot run /bin/bash ./config.sub 
any ideas?

Having issues with my cgminer config, any tips?

I got cgminer working, but I am pulling a measly 8kh/s. Running ubuntu 12.04, with a GTX 560 Ti gc card. On this resource, it says I should be passing the -i and 0 args, but I get an error when I do that, are those windows args? Any tips on how I can optimise my config file based on my card? If I use the example config from this tutorial, I get an Too many values passed to set temp cut error, and it force closes. If I don't use the example config file cgminer runs, but my kh/s is very very low. Should I be using cudaminer? Does cudaminer work on linux? Any tips for a noob would be much appreciated.
