1.Acquire wallet address
As similar to the mining of such currencies as ETH and ZEC, the first thing for MGD GPU mining is to have a MGD receiving address. A MGD wallet can be acquired in the following way:
The wallet client to be linked is a full-node wallet and it is used in the same way as the QT wallet for BTC, featuring short time of consumption when synchronizing data.
Note: Linux system wallet client: http://mlgb.co.in/assets/download/MassGridWallet_1.1.0_Ubuntu.zip
2.Acquire mining software
MGD uses a custom mining algorithm. The GPU (A Card or N Card) mining software for the Windows system is as follows:
Note: Linux system mining
3.Set up parameters in mining software and start mining
After acquiring the mining software, unzip it and find the “minerpool.bat” file.
Right click on the “minerpool.bat” file and select “Edit”.
Open the following window and see the figure below for parameters. To set up MGD mining, you need to check a mining pool address and set up the worker’s own MGD receiving address and worker number. If there are many miners, worker numbers are for distinguishing different miners, so don’t miss that point. When making any modification, modify a corresponding character only. Do not delete any spacing or punctuation. Save it after completing modification.
Explanations for specific parameters are as follows:
bfgminer refers to the name of the mining software under this folder directory to be run
- o is to set up the mining pool server and its port to be linked, which can be an ip or domain name. By default, here fill in the VV mining pool and port number (overseas partner of F2Pool): mgd.vvpool.com:5630
-u refers to mining user information. This is critically important. If you make any mistake in filling this, you may not be able to get any income. The MSw7kPVakH7RHTWSQ3CSaoh7wJVdbQ4Nxp here is an address to be set up at the time of testing mining. Please change it into the recharge address given to you by the exchange or your own wallet address in official mining.
.0008 is a worker number and it is used for distinguishing computing power among different miners. Please fill in different numbers for different miners for the convenience of maintenance and distinguishing.
Neglect the subsequent parameters.
After completing the setup of mining parameters, save the ““minerpool.bat” file, double click to run it and start mining.
At the first time of running, the mining software needs to initialize the Kernel for Open CL mining. Since this will take a long time (2-5 minutes), OCL will appear as prompt: Idle from more than 60 seconds, declaring SICK! Now the miner will try to recompile Kernel automatically and make many attempts to restart GPU. This many lead to many times of error reports. It is normal and the only thing you can do is to wait.
After the lapse of about 5-15 minutes, the system’s computing power area will be stable and you can see computing power in the worker software. See the figure below for the interface:
The data in the OCL line shows mining computing power. For example, the computing power of the miner in the above figure is 1.93Mhash/s.
4.Miner monitoring and how to view income
To view MGD miner status and daily income, please visit VVPOOL’s official website.
Visit the website: http://www.vvpool.com/
Enter the MGD address set up for mining in the search box on the page and click to view, and you can view miner status and income.
5.How to set up auto start of a mining program at boot
Add batch processing tools in the mining software to boot startup and this enables auto start at reboot.
Set up mining software by following the aforesaid requirements.
Create a shortcut for the mining software or its batch processing files and paste this shortcut to the folder at C:ProgramDataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsStartUp. (The ProgramData folder is a hidden folder and you need to select “Show Hidden Folders” in “View” to view it)
Reboot your computer and the mining software can auto start at boot.
