Monero (XMR) is a cryptocurrency-based Cryptonote algorithm that relies on Ring Signatures to provide a certain level of personal security when making transactions. Monero is a Proof of Work cryptocurrency that can be mined with the ability to calculate from a CPU or GPU. There is currently no ASIC for Monero, which means that anyone with a computer can dig it.

The first thing you need to think about whether you will dig alone or on a mine. Mining in mines usually comes with a fee but also has advantages. Users who do not have enough computing power may have to wait a long time before receiving a reward, in a pool of users working together to reduce the difference and bring a steady stream of income. Users with enough hardware or who simply want to mine alone benefit from single mines with the same functionality as a normal single mine, but do not require the user to run the entire node or save. store the entire blockchain. We will use MoneroHash for this tutorial, but you can use any mine you like.

Monero Digging Guide (XMR)

Today we will show you how to dig Monero on a mining pool (Mining Pool). AMD graphics cards are optimal for Monero Mining, but you can also dig it with GPU or Nvidia CPU (currently the difficulty increases sharply so you will only dig on the GPU). To allow users to get the most out of their own hardware, we will use a different software created for each of these options.

Part 1 - CPU Exploitation

Step 1: Download the mining software. For this part of this tutorial we will be using Wolf's CryptoNote open source n CPU Miner as it provides the best results. You can find the download link at click here.

Step 2: Extract the .zip file. You will see on the left with a folder as shown below.

Step 3: Now, inside the folder of miners you just extracted from the .zip file, you will need to press ctrl + right mousekey. In this way, you will be given an additional "open command window here“Click it and a command line window will appear.

Step 4: Now that our command prompt is ready, all we need to do is type the command: "minerd -a cryptonight -o stratum + tcp: //monerohash.com: 3333 -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS - px “. You must replace "YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS"With your XMR real wallet address.

Now you are mining Monero! You can see all the available commands by typing "minerd –help". In our case, we just use the command -a, which stands for the algorithm, -o stands for server, -u is your wallet address and -p is your password, maybe leave an x ​​when the mine doesn't ask you to log in.

Part 2 - Mining AMD GPUs

Step 1: Download the mining software. For this part of this tutorial, Download mining software. For this part of this tutorial we will be using Wolf's CryptoNote open source n CPU Miner as it provides the best results. You can find the download link here.

Step 2: Extract the .zip file. You will see on the left with a folder as shown below.


Step 3: Now you need to format the xmr.conf file, open the file with note pad and change the "url": "stratum + tcp: //xmr.poolto.be: 3000" to your mine address , in this case: "stratum + tcp: //monerohash.com: 3333". Replace the user with your wallet, in this case: “user”: “45hVQbLnspDDViJeMc1v6mFPjKmJ38geKVZFRgFXxV1pVSDpG8jz4LfTmkvhgj9sPwjA1ZLJD9d3xTUF982Uk7poL2Kaz”.
Step 4: Once the xmr.conf file recognizes you, you must go into the dig folder that we extracted from the .zip file and press ctrl + right mousekey (For windows 10 to get more options need to hold shift + right mousekey). In this way, you will be given an additional "open command window here“Click it and a command line window will appear.


Step 5: Now that our command line window (miner) is ready, all we need to do is attach miner to xmr.conf file. Type: "miner xmr.conf"


And itself, now that you're mining with your AMD GPU, this will give you the best results when mining XMR. If you get the error “clCreateBuffer”, decrease your raw intensity in the xmr.conf file: “rawintensity”: 1336

Part 3 - Mining Nvidia GPUs

Step 1: Download the digging software. For this section in this tutorial, we will use the CCMiner version created by tsiv, as it delivers the best results when digging with Nvidia Graphic Cards. You can find the download link at click here.

Step 2: Extract the .zip file. You will see on the left with a folder as shown below.

Step 3: Now, inside the folder of miners you just extracted from the .zip file, you will need to press ctrl + right mouse button (for Windows 10, need extra options and press shift + right mouse key ). In this way, you will be given an additional "open command window here“Click it and a command line window will appear.

Step 4: Now that our command prompt is ready, all we need to do is type the command: "ccminer -o stratum + tcp: //monerohash.com: 3333 -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -px“. You must replace "YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS"Address" for your real XMR wallet address.

That is the last step. Now you are digging Monero with your Nvidia graphics card. As you can see, Monero can be mined for any hardware, even a CPU! So why not try it?

Part 4 - Easy to exploit with any hardware

In this section, we will use Minergate, an easy-to-use cryptocurrency miner, which allows you to mine cryptocurrencies with a single click!

Step 1: The first thing you need is an account on www.minergate.com. MinerGate has a built-in wallet to allow users to start mining even if they don't have a wallet address, so to protect your funds, we recommend using a difficult password and activating 2FA. (2 factor authentication), 2FA will ensure that no one can receive your money even if they know your password. Remember, the safest place to store your money is in your wallet.

Step 2: Next, you need to download Mingergate software and install it, the website will detect your operating system and show the correct version for your device. Install and run MinerGate.

Step 3: After you open and install the setup, you will be presented with the option to start smart mining. MinerGate automatically detects your device and chooses the encryption method that is most profitable according to your hardware, along with its market price and difficulty. For most of these computers this will be Monero, so you can click on “Start smart mining”.

You can choose the number of cores (core) you want to use in your CPU and GPU, if you have one. If smart digging takes you to another cryptocurrency, you can always choose monero manually, like this:

It should come out like this. Easy, right? Minergate is proud to do so! And you can use their GUI digging technician for other cryptos like Ethereum and Ethereum Classic. Good luck!
