Quick start guide for mining BTG


#1

Here is a quick guide for mining Bitcoin Gold (BTG) under WIndows, with several different miner options

Tools you may need:

If you need an alternative to winzip to unzip your files, 7-zip works well.

We will need a program other than notepad to use for editing the .cfg file. You can use other ones, I use this one.

Here are several choices for a miner program.

Remember to delete the run.bat file

Normally you are used to editing the .bat file .We will be editing the miner.cfg file instead.

Notice I deleted the .bat file

you will be using the .cfg file. it looks like the picture below.

Edit it to match the above picture ( please make sure to put in your own wallet info) then SAVE it.

Simple miner (SMOS) -Nvidia

I really like SMOS, it does cost $2 permonth per rig. but it is pretty easy to set up and run.

You will need a USB stick 16gb or more.

I hope this quick guide helps you to get up and running.

Stay tuned , next post we will talk about overclocking settings and results.
