Windows Nvidia GPU Mining

  • The following step requires the 7zip archiver which can be downloaded from here
  • Download ccminer from here. Make sure to select the correct version for your hardware and Operating System (32-Bit or 64-Bit) - when in doubt choose 32-Bit
  • Extract the archive and open ccminer.conf in a text-editor of your choice
  • Replace the contents of the file with:
   {
     "max-log-rate" : 30,
     "quiet" : false,
     "debug" : false,
     "protocol" : false,
     "cpu-priority" : 3,
     "algo" : "lyra2v2",
     "url" : "stratum+tcp://vtc.poolmining.org:3096",
     "user" : "YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS",
     "pass" : "d=8"
   }
  • Replace YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS with your Vertcoin wallet address. If you don't know your address, read this section first
  • If you are mining on multiple machines/rigs, you can append an identifier of your choice to your wallet address seperated by a dot to make it easier to distinguish between your rigs when evaluating your results. Example: <WALLET ADDRESS>.<OPTIONAL WORKERNAME>
  • Save the file
  • Start ccminer.exe or ccminer-x64.exe

Windows AMD GPU Mining

  • Download sgminer for Windows
  • Extract the archive and open START_VERT.bat in a text-editor of your choice
  • Replace YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS with your Vertcoin address. If you don't know your address, read this section first
  • If you are mining on multiple machines/rigs, you can append an identifier of your choice to your wallet address seperated by a dot to make it easier to distinguish between your rigs when evaluating your results. Example: <WALLET ADDRESS>.<OPTIONAL WORKERNAME>
  • Save the file
  • Run START_VERT.bat

Linux Nvidia GPU Mining

  • To mine Vertcoin on Linux using a Nvidia GPU you first need to install Nvidia Cuda
  • Download ccminer from here
  • Extract the archive with tar xfj ccminer-linux-x64-nvidia-cuda-8.0.tar.bz2 followed by cd ccminer-linux-x64-nvidia-cuda-8.0 and create ccminer.conf in a text-editor of your choice
  • Paste:
   {
     "max-log-rate" : 30,
     "quiet" : false,
     "debug" : false,
     "protocol" : false,
     "cpu-priority" : 3,
     "algo" : "lyra2v2",
     "url" : "stratum+tcp://vtc.poolmining.org:3096",
     "user" : "YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS",
     "pass" : "d=8"

Linux AMD GPU Mining

  • Download sgminer for Linux
  • Extract the archive and open start_vtc.sh in a text-editor of your choice
  • Replace YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS with your Vertcoin address. If you don't know your address, read this section first
  • If you are mining on multiple machines/rigs, you can append an identifier of your choice to your wallet address seperated by a dot to make it easier to distinguish between your rigs when evaluating your results. Example: <WALLET ADDRESS>.<OPTIONAL WORKERNAME>
  • Save the file
  • Run ./start_vtc.sh

Getting a Wallet

Before you can start to mine you need to create a wallet. Although Vertcoin is an entirely digital asset, you still need a place to store them. This is done in a digital wallet. There are multiple methods to obtain a wallet which vary by ease of use and the security they provide.

Official Wallets

Official first-party Wallets for all major platforms are available from the Vertcoin Website. These wallets are released and maintained by the Vertcoin Team.

Hardware Wallets

Trezor

A hardware wallet is a special type of wallet which stores the user's private keys in a secure hardware device. Hardware wallets offer robust safety features for storing cryptographic assets and securing digital payments. Popular hardware wallets are the Ledger Nano S and the Trezor.

Registering with an exchange

There are multiple digital currency exchanges you can register with. Registering with an exchange allows you to create a wallet on the exchange for every currency the exchange supports. Registering with an exchange is probably the most convenient way to obtain a wallet. Unfortunately it is also the least secure one. Exchanges have been hacked in the past!

Popular exchanges supporting Vertcoin are: Bittrex, Poloniex, Kraken, Bitfinex and HitBTC.
