Getting Started Guide

1. Create account.

  • Register here, or login if you already have account
  • Create a worker that will be used by the miner to login

2. Download a miner.

3. Configure your miner.

Settings for Stratum (recommended):

STRATUM:stratum+tcp://altcoins-mining.com
PORT:3636
Username:Weblogin.Worker
Password:Worker Password

If you use a command-line miner, type:

  • CGMiner
  • ./cgminer  -o stratum+tcp://altcoins-mining.com:3636 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password
  • BFGMiner
  • ./bfgminer  -o stratum+tcp://altcoins-mining.com:3636 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password

    If you want, you can create additional workers with usernames and passwords of your choice here

    4. Create a STARTCOIN address to recieve payments.

    • Downloading the client & block chain: Download the STARTCOIN client from here.

      Generate a new address and input it on your account page to receive payments.

    5. Advanced cgminer settings / FAQ

    • Scrypt readme
    • Don't set intensity too high, I=11 is standard and safest. Higher intensity takes more GPU RAM. Check for hardware errors in cgminer (HW). HW=0 is good, otherwise lower intensity :)
    • Set shaders according to the readme (or look at your graphic cards specifications). Cgminer uses this value at first run to calculate thread-concurrency. Easiest way to get this optimized is to use same settings as others have used here: here.
    • There's also an interesting project which gives you a GUI for cgminer. Windows only it seems.
    • Here's a great guide how to get up and running with Xubuntu.
