Detailled instructions

To be completed

0. Requirements

Linux, NVidia GPU.
Install NVidia Cuda:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install htop screen nvidia-cuda-toolkit
Then reboot.
You can then check that Drivers are ok via ndivia-smi command.

1. Download and 2. Extract

tar -zxvf EggMinerGpu.tgz

3. Edit

cd EggMinerGpu
cp miner.default.txt miner.txt
nano miner.txt
Edit the miner_address= line and paste your address.
do NOT add any space, the line has to read like miner_address=c270e5b5d1cdb9597d2440bb2d39fa8114da95db9fad1336bcdeb696
Just take care, no space around the '=' sign.
Note:The archive does not come with a miner.txt, so it wont delete your settings. But on first setup, you have to create that file, unless you want to mine for the defautl address (us).

4. Run

That's all, you are now mining Bismuth full speed with your GPUs


You can run the miner in a screen command, so you can monitor from another machine.
You can launch it at startup.
Your cards should be auto-tuned with the best params.
If you've got some old or specific GPU, let us now so we can tune and adjust.

Some candy

The miner uses by default a sha of your hostname as worker name, to give a unique worker name, but not leaking any info.
You can add the -c flag to the miner (stands for clear), like ./EggMinerGpu.exe -c, to use the real hostname instead.
You then have a unique worker name that can be your rig's name, no edit involved.
If you want more control, use -n switch instead, like this : ./EggMinerGpu.exe -n MyUniqueWorkerName (of course, don't use "MyUniqueWorkerName", but a real unique name.
The same is achived with an optional line miner_name=MyUniqueWorkerName in miner.txt.
Just take care, no space around the '=' sign.

What should I expect?

We're working on it, but you can check your card perfs with our Rentability Calculator.
