Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts using a custom built blockchain. The platform uses a cryptocurrency also called Ethereum (Ether/ETH). This tutorial will walk through all of the necessary steps, required to get a mining rig set up to mine the Ethereum cryptocurrency.
GPU/CPU Mining script with intelligent auto-switching between different miningpools, algorithm, miner programs using all possible combinations of devices (NVIDIA, AMD, INTEL and CPU), optionally including cost of electricity into profit calculations and stop mining, if no longer profitable.Features: easy setup wizard with ad-hoc working default (no editing of files needed), GUI-webinterface, selection of devices to be used, very low CPU usage.
For your convenience, you can monitor and setup RainbowMiner using your web browser. The web interface very prominently shows RainbowMiner's live profitability and the current BTC exchange rates. To start the web interface, simply open the URL localhost:4000 in a new browser tab.
The following miners can be fine tuned, using config files. Most of the config files are being generated upon the first start of the miner. All config files will be written once, only, and kept through miner updates. To let RainbowMiner recreate those files, they will have to be deleted.
The assignment is done, using either [C]onfiguration->[M]iners or directly edited into the miners.config.txt file. Find your miner, the device it will use, plus the algorithm and put the profile's name into the field "OCprofile"
For non-autoexchange pools, you may define multiple wallets. The wallets define, which coins may be mined at a pool. In the following example, Rainbowminer will mine RVN and SUQA on Icemining, hereby using the default RVN wallet in the coins.config.txt.
Many of our pools are based on the open-source YiiMP pool (e.g. Blockmaster,Hashcryptos,ZergPool,ZPool etc.). Some of these pools accept additional parameters. A prominent example is the setting of a custom payout limit at ZergPool (pl=x.xx). To add a password parameter, add one line to pools.config.txt in the form "CURRENCY-Params": "parameters",. In fact, all parameters will be added to the preset password contents, using a comma. 2b1af7f3a8
