ETH/ETC Mining Guide

2020.02.25

ASIC and GPU miners can be used for ETH/ETC mining. Following is a mining guide for using these two types of miners.

  1. ASIC miners for ETH/ETC mining

For ASIC miners (e.g. Antminer E3), please refer to BTC/BCH/BSV Mining Guide to configure miners for ETH/ETC mining.

  1. GPU miners for ETH/ETC mining

For GPU miners, please refer to the following for ETH/ETC mining:

Windows:

  1. Change the following command:
EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool stratum.okpool.me:3333 -ewal $okpool_alias -eworker $worker_name -epsw x -asm 2 -dbg -1 -allpools 1 -mode 1

Copy the above and make the following changes:

  • Change “$okpool_alias” to your “Alias”;
  • Change “$worker_name” to your predefined worker’s name. You can randomly choose any alphabets or figures, such as 001, to set up this;

Copy the command text for Step 3 after change.

Linux:

  1. Change the following command:
./ethdcrminer64 -epool stratum.okpool.me:3333 -ewal $okpool_alias -epsw x -eworker $worker_name -epsw x -asm 2 -dbg -1 -allpools 1 -mode 1

Copy the above and make the following changes:

  • Change “$okpool_alias” to your “alias”;
  • Change “$worker_name” to your predefined worker’s name. You can randomly choose any alphabets or figures, such as 001, to set up this;
