  • Register here, or login if you already have account
  • Create a worker that will be used by the miner to login

2. Download a miner.

3. Configure your miner.

  • CGMiner examle:
  • Europe Stratum:

    Port with Vardiff 32 - 2048

    ./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum-eu1.hashlink.eu:3041 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

    Port with High Vardiff 512 - 8096 | For larger asics and rentals

    ./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum-eu1.hashlink.eu:3341 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

    US Stratum:

    Port with Vardiff 32 - 2048

    ./cgminer --scrypt  -o stratum+tcp://stratum-us1.hashlink.eu:3041 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

    Port with High Vardiff 512 - 8096 | For larger asics and rentals

    ./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://stratum-us1.hashlink.eu:3341 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

    5. Advanced CGMiner settings / FAQ

    • Scrypt readme
    • Don't set intensity too high, I=11 is standard and safest. Higher intensity takes more GPU RAM. Check for hardware errors in CGMiner (HW). HW=0 is good, otherwise lower intensity.
    • Set shaders according to the readme (or look at your graphic cards specifications). CGMiner uses this value at first run to calculate thread-concurrency. Easiest way to get this optimized is to use same settings as others have used here: here.
    • There's also an interesting project which gives you a GUI for CGMiner. Windows only it seems.
    • Here's a great guide how to get up and running with Xubuntu.
