*NOOBS GUIDE TO MINING DOGECOIN*



very scrypt such random much profit wow many coin


Want to start mining Dogecoin? Follow this tutorial to start making much profit and wow many coin.


STEP 1: GET THE DOGECOIN WALLET

Go to https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=361813.0 and download the wallet and install the wallet by running dodgecoin-qt.exe.

It will take a minute or two to sync with the network and it will add files to your appdata folder, located at C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\DogeCoin.

STEP 2: GET MINING SOFTWARE

You can download a compiled rar with the miners, .bat, and .conf files that I made straight from the files on the creators pages HERE. If you prefer to download individual packages yourself you can at the following links.

NOTE: CGMINER WILL GIVE YOU A FALSE POSITIVE AS A MALWARE/TROJAN IN MOST ANTIVIRUS/SCANNING PROGRAMS. IT DOES NOT CONTAIN MALWARE/TROJANS.

CGMINER(AMD) - Download
CUDAMINER(NVIDIA) - Download
MINERED(CPU) - Download
Unzip the package and choose the folder that corresponds to what you will be mining with, CPU, AMD GPU or NVIDIA GPU, I'm using AMD so my folder looks like


STEP 3: CHOOSE A MINING POOL

Here are a few of the more popular mining pools

http://doge.scryptpools.com/
http://doge.netcodepool.org/
http://doge.cryptovalley.com/
http://doge.cryptopool.it/
http://doge.pool.webxass.de/
http://www.dogecoinpool.com/

Create and account on whichever pool you choose then create a new worker by going to My Workers on the left menu and then adding a new worker with a password.


STEP 4: SET UP CONFIG AND BAT FILES

Copy the Dogecoin.conf found in the Mining Package you downloaded earlier and paste it in your C:\Users\abracadavre\AppData\Roaming\DogeCoin folder.

Now select the .bat file your will be using corresponding to you GPU or CPU in the Litecoin Miner Package you downloaded earlier, open it in Notepad and replace the contents with the following.(Change the values in red to match your pools address,port number and the username and password you set for your worker.) Note if you didn't download my compiled package you will have to create your own .bat file in Notepad.

MineWithAMDGPU.bat
cgminer.exe --scrypt  -o stratum+tcp://POOLADDRESS:PORTNUMBER -u USERNAME.WORKER -p PASSWORD

MineWithNvidiaGPU.bat
cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://POOLADDRESS:PORTNUMBER -O USERNAME.WORKER:PASSWORD

MineWithCPU.bat
minerd -a scrypt -t 4 -s 6 -o stratum+tcp://POOLADDRESS:PORTNUMBER -O USERNAME.WORKER:PASSWORD

Save your .bat file when you are done

Please note your USERNAME.WORKER is your username you made when you joined the plus and the workers username you set up earlier. So many people are only using one of the other and receiving errors. Say if I joined the pool and my user name is Doge1 then I set up a worker with the name dogeworker I would put it in the batch file as Doge1.dogeworker.

STEP 5: MINE!

Please turn UAC(User Account Control) to OFF before trying to run the bat file.(Control Panel>UAC in search box>Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off>Set to off) if you don't you will encounter problems trying to run the batch file and have to run is from command prompt.

Run the .bat file you just created as Admin and collect much coin! wow.

Drivers

AMD - The highest version of Catalyst drivers I have tried is 12.9, some users are reporting higher versions 13.x not working correctly.

NVIDIA - If anybody knows that best stable drivers for NVIDIA GPU please let know as I haven't tested them.

TROUBLESHOOTING


IMPORTANT FOR DOGES MINING WITH LAPTOPS WITH SWITCHABLE GRAPHICS(2 GRAPHICS CARDS, INTEGRATED INTEL AND AMD RADEON
You will need to turn your switchable graphics off to only run your Radeon. Go into you BIOS(F2 etc on boot) and find the switchable graphics/discrete graphics settings and turn it of. If that doesn't solve your GPU not found issues you need to install new drivers from Leschat. There is manual on the site that will guide you through it.

If you can't connect: Double check your wallet is in the same folder as your dogecoin.conf . Also make sure the port you are using, is forwarded on your router.

If you get a 401 error: You have the wrong username or password or your port is not forwarded.

HAPPY MINING

**NEW**MINING ON A MAC**

You can mine on a Mac with cgMiner, and run it with commands from terminal but this is much easier. Go to http://www.asteroidapp.com/ and download Asteroid.


Select the GPU or CPU you are going to use to mine


Then choose edit Mining Pool and manually input the pool you will use

Then give the pool a name, coin type will be Litecoin, enter pool URL and your username and password you created on your pool, accept then click start.

For those using older versions that OSX 10.8 you will have to use cgMiner.

Go to http://spaceman.ca/cgminer/ and download the full package not just the miner.(so you don't have to compile.)

Use Terminal to cd to the cgminer exec file, it will be at cgminer-3.6.6-mac-full/cgminer\ for\ Mac\ OS\ X.app/Contents/Resources/

Use a text editor(VIM, etc) to create a .sh mining file, press i to start editing, then type

./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://POOLADDRESS:PORT -u USERNMAE -p PASSWORD -w 128 -g 1

type chmod+x pickafilename.sh

then run the .sh you just created by typing ./filename.sh

cg miner should start then.

You can modify the .sh file to increase your hashrate, and it's different for every machine so I will have to play around with the .sh for awhile, then I'll let you guys know.

HAPPY MINING

PEOPLE REQUESTING HELP IN THE THREAD, PLEASE INCLUDE THE GPU MODEL YOU ARE USING AND YOUR .BAT FILE IN YOUR POST.

Hi,

Thanks for this - exactly the type of tutorial I needed as i'm only delving into any kind of crypto-currency today, though i've got a couple of questions if someone wouldn't mind enlightening me...

Do you have a guide for Mac? Not sure what to do...

My main machine is a Macbook pro which is where i'd like to store my wallet. I intend to dig on my home windows PC (a behemoth) and my work windows PC (a pretty poor workstation). Will this be a problem?

Im not sure about mining on a Mac, but what I would do if I were you is mine on your PC's, then your Doge will go into your account on your pools site, then download the Mac wallet and do your cashouts from your pool to your wallet on your Mac.

If you followed the instructions exactly im not sure why your bat isnt running. Make sure everything is in the same directory, your appdata folder and all the settings and password & username that you set up on the pool are correct. Can you post the .bat file code you are using here?

Sorry my mistake, most pools are using 3333 but a few aren't, I'll change it in the OP. Your pool uses 3322. Try ./cgminer --scrypt  -o stratum+tcp://doge.cryptopool.it:3322 -u USERNAME.WORKER -p PASSWORD

eyebettle, for solo mining use the SoloMineWith*******.bat included in the Package I linked above and change them to as follows

SoloMineWithNVIDIAGPU.bat
cudaminer.exe -i 0 -C 2 -l 32x4 -m 1 -o POOLADDRESS -O doge:wow

SoloMineWithAMDGPU
cgminer.exe --scrypt -o POOLADDRESS -u doge -p wow --thread-concurrency 4096 -I 10 -g 1 -w 256

SoloMineWithCPU
minerd.exe --url POOLADDRESS --userpass doge:wow --threads 8
