How to Mine DigiByte (DGB)
This assumes you already have your rig built, and OS and miner installed and configured.
Solo mining, single rig
ONLY 3 THINGS TO DO:
set up your wallet config file
set up your wallet to run as a server
set up your miner batch file to point to your wallet
Wallet config file key items: everything, but there are less than 20 lines
Cut and paste what’s posted here into your digibyte.conf file inside the same directory/folder where your wallet is found:
Change the rpcuser and rpcpassword to something of your choosing
Save it as digibyte.conf
Create a shortcut of your DigiByte wallet, right click, click properties append –server to the end of the TARGET line
(Example: C:\Users\User\Wallets\DigiByte\digibyte-qt.exe –server)
Save it and run your DigiByte Wallet as a server using that newly created shortcut.
One other thing, don’t forget to modify the algo line with the algorithm you’re using.
Setup your bat/script startup file by SIMPLY CHANGING 3 THINGS: your -o -u and -p switches (everything else stays the same)
-u the user name that you gave to rpcuser in your digibyte.conf file
-p the password that you gave to rpcpassword in your digibyte.conf file
Save and run. You’re now mining solo.
Multiple Rig Setups
All the same as above, except you need to:
Change the 127.0.0.1 in the rpcallowip line in your digibyte.conf file to the IP of your server wallet machine or of your subnet, (for example to 192.168.0.* or 192.168.1.* which are the most common – you could go with 192.168.*.* when in doubt)
If necessary, create any necessary firewall exceptions on your server wallet machine and/or router.
Change the -o switch in your bat/script startup file to the IP of your server wallet machine, followed by a colon, and the rpcport number used (for example 192.168.0.30:17772 )
And you’re off and running, now solo mining using various miners together.
Mine DigiByte with Easy Miner
DigiHash Easy Miner is software designed to make mining DigiByte on Windows with a CPU & GPU as simple as:
1) Download digihash
2) Install digihash.exe
3) Enter DGB address from wallet & start mining on DigiHash.co
Works with AMD & NVIDIA cards & CPU’s
Our goal is to begin bringing in many new users through some of the marketing campaigns we are planning with this software. We want to make DigiByte mining as simple and as easy to do as possible for a beginner.
DigiHash auto-detects your computers hardware (AMD, NVIDIA, CPU) & then connects to a central server to download the appropriate mining software and references the appropriate configuration and begins mining. All with one click of a button.
For the first few days & weeks most configurations for miners will not be optimized in the initial miners database on the server as their is literally thousands of combinations for hardware.
