Fast Start – Setup Phoenixminer
Step 1: Download the miner
After the download is complete, extract the contents of the .zip archive.
In the folder containing the program, you must create or edit a .bat file.
This can be done in any text editor (for example, in Notepad).
When saving the file, it is important to select All Files as the file type rather than .txt.
Otherwise, you will have .bat.txt at the end of the file name and the miner will not be able to open that file.
Your .bat file (let’s say it’s called 1_Ehereum-nanopool.bat) should contain the following text from step 2.
Attention!For security reasons, Windows may not allow you to open a bat file.
Step 2: Enter or edit the following command:
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100 PhoenixMiner.exe -epool eth-eu2.nanopool.org:9999 -worker YOUR_RIG_NAME -wal YOUR_WALLET ADDRESS -pass x
Step 3: Enter your wallet addresses
WALLET_ADDRESS – enter your address Ethereum wallet (here’s how P
hoenixMiner Miner learns where to mine your ETH)
NAME – you can choose any name (e.g. test), but don’t exaggerate: it should
be a maximum of 32 characters, contain only letters and numbers, no special symbols such as
Step 4: Start mining
Click twice on your Bat file to run the program. The miner will start, perform
commands to install variables, initiate each of your graphics cards, create a DAG file on each of your GP processors, and start hashing. Allow it to work for about 20 seconds, and then press the
"s" to show the hashing speed. If you’ve done the above, you should see this screen.
