How to set up an ETC miner
Hello everyone, my name is Cuihua, the editor of POWPOWER, POWPOWER has been focusing on the mining area for 4 years, is the official distributor of IPollo, and has established long-term partnerships with Bitmain, Avalon, Jas miner, inno, Whatsminer and Goldshell. Today I will tell you how to set up ETC miners
What do I need to prepare for cryptocurrency mining? What You Should Know About ETC Mining
Ethereum Classic (ETC) mining is fairly easy compared to other digital currency mining, but there are a few things you need to know and implement before you start mining. Hardware type, mining software, etc. The network difficulty of mining Ethereum Classic is low, so miners generally use GPU mining hardware rather than ASIC miners. Ethereum Classic remains one of the most profitable coins out there.
Here is an overview of the steps for Ethereum Classic mining: Install the mining hardware and set up the computer. Register or install an ETC compatible wallet.
Join the mining pool. Start mining. Let’s look at these steps in detail.
Select and install mining hardware: Mining hardware may be CPU, GPU and ASIC. For Ethereum Classic mining, AMD GPU or higher-end Nvidia graphics card is recommended. Nvidia computer card. Nvidia computer card.
The card should have at least 4 GB RAM. A stable power supply system is also required; it would of course be better to have a higher end power supply.
To install hardware, go to amd.com and select Support & Drivers. Enter GPU information and click Show Results. Click Download Current Driver. After downloading, install the hardware as normal and restart your computer.
Get an ETC wallet: After installing the hardware, you need to get an ETC compatible wallet. Examples include Coinomi and Exodus wallets. Claymore Miner also needs to be downloaded; download it from Google or the Mega download link.
Join a mining pool: Solo mining is achievable, but the rewards are much less. Therefore, most miners like to join mining pools and pay around 1% for the services they receive. There are many to choose from, but Nanopool and Ethermine are two common pools. The “Quick Start” button under Ethereum Classic on Nanopool.org is a good choice for Xiaobai to join a mining pool.
Get FinMiner or Claymore Ethereum Dual Miner depending on whether you’re using an Nvidia or AMD card. Claymore Miner has more features and works with both cards. It is the first choice for most users.
Start mining: After completing all the above instructions, the next step is to start mining. Run the setx command, initialize each GPU, build the DAG file on each GPU, and start the hash calculation. Let it run for about 20 seconds, then click “s” to show the hash speed. Ethereum Classic mining is now in progress!
