Claymore

Claymore is a multi-algorithm miner that has build-in stratum support.

Installation
    Download Claymore's ZCash AMD GPU Miner here or here and extract the archive to any folder.

Configuration
    Make sure your config.txt file looks like this (replace eu1 server with the nearest server to your location):

-zpool ssl://zec-eu1.nanopool.org:6633
-zwal YOUR_ZEC_ADDRESS.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL
-zpsw z
-ftime 1

Where:

  • YOUR_ZEC_ADDRESS - your valid ZCash address.
  • YOUR_WORKER - simple and short worker name (like worker01). Optional.
  • YOUR_EMAIL - your email address for notifications. Optional.

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.

Failovers
        To enable Nanopool's failover servers, add these lines to the epools.txt file and fill the same address, worker name and email you did in the config.txt file.

POOL: zec-eu1.nanopool.org:6633, WALLET: YOUR_ZEC_WALLET/YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
POOL: zec-eu2.nanopool.org:6633, WALLET: YOUR_ZEC_WALLET/YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
POOL: zec-us-east1.nanopool.org:6633, WALLET: YOUR_ZEC_WALLET/YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
POOL: zec-us-west1.nanopool.org:6633, WALLET: YOUR_ZEC_WALLET/YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
POOL: zec-asia1.nanopool.org:6633, WALLET: YOUR_ZEC_WALLET/YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0

Setting failovers is not necessary, but advisable. By settings them up, you can be sure in case of connection loss with the primary server, the miner will automatically reconnect to the secondary one (and so on), and you don't miss out on your valuable mining time.   

Run
        Double click the start.bat file to launch the miner.

Additional info
        Claymore miner takes additional 2% fee (2.5% for non-SSL connection).
