Nanominer is a fast and stable, user-friendly and reliable miner which has been released by Nanopool - one of the best cryptocurrency mining solution out there.
Download The Miner from GitHub and extract the archive to any folder.
This configuration is suitable for Windows and Linux.
Make sure your config.ini file looks like this:
[Ethash] wallet=YOUR_WALLET coin=ETH rigName=YOUR_WORKER_NAME email=YOUR_EMAIL
- YOUR_WALLET - your valid Ethereum address
- YOUR_WORKER_NAME - simple short worker name (like worker01). Optional.
- YOUR_EMAIL - your email address for notifications. Optional.
Host servers of Nanopool will be added automatically. Miner also can sort servers via ping, and chose the nearest one. If you want to setup failovers manually, you need to add "pool" option like in example bellow:
[Ethash] wallet=YOUR_WALLET coin=ETH rigName=YOUR_WORKER_NAME email=YOUR_EMAIL pool1 = eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999 pool2 = eth-eu2.nanopool.org:9999 pool3 = eth-us-east1.nanopool.org:9999 pool4 = eth-us-west1.nanopool.org:9999 pool5 = eth-asia1.nanopool.org:9999
Double check you set your own wallet and it's correct. Set a simple worker name to track your RIG on the pool and an email address to receive alerts when your RIG goes offline. Alternatively, you can set a passphrase instead to access the account settings.
Double click the nanominer file to launch the miner.
