【Obtain GPU mining software and mining configuration】

DCR can be mined using Graphics Card. You need to download software to mine with GPU.

Download address for DCR official recommended software https://www.decred.org/downloads/

To configure GPU mining software please note:

1. Ensure that the DCR pool address and port are correct:

2. Modify the wallet address and worker number (Remember to keep the "dot" between the wallet address and the worker number)

3. When making any modification, only modify the corresponding characters, do not delete any spacing or punctuation, otherwise the software will not be able to mine normally.

 

1) NVIDIA card single mining

Download the N-card mining software, find and right click on the "start.bat" file and select “Edit”. Confirm the mining pool address and port number, modify the wallet address and worker number. The parameter settings are as follows:

ccmier:

ccminer -a decred -o stratum+tcp://dcr.antpool.com:9002 -u WalletAddress.WorkerNumber -p x

gominer:

gominer -o stratum+tcp://dcr.antpool.com:9002 -m WalletAddress.WorkerNumber -n x

As shown below:


0015c6b7dcf9cab53734827bd0b795c

0015c6b7dd8671a34361232f6412804

Save the "start.bat" file after completing the modification and double-click to start mining.

 

2) AMD card single mining

Download the A-card mining software, find and right click on the "start.bat" file and select “Edit”. Confirm the mining pool address and port number, modify the wallet address and worker number. The parameter settings are as follows:

Gominer:

gominer -o stratum+tcp://dcr.antpool.com:9002 -m WalletAddress.WorkerNumber -n x

As shown below:

0015c6b7e234bfadc6619793b9c68b6

Save the "start.bat" file after completing the modification and double-click to start mining.

 

3) Dual mining (ETH+DCR or ETC+DCR)

Dual-mining means you could mine ETH or ETC at the same time while mining DCR with GPU.

Download the Dual-mining software, find and right click on the "start-ETH/ETC+DCR.bat" file and select “Edit”. Confirm the mining pool address and port number, modify the wallet address and worker number. The parameter settings are as follows:

ETH+DCR dual mining:

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool stratum-eth.antpool.com:8008 -ewal EthereumWalletAddress -epsw x -eworker WorkerNumber -estale 0 -dpool stratum+tcp://dcr.antpool.com:9002 -dwal DCRWalletAddress.WorkerNumber -dpsw x -dcri 30

ETC+DCR dual mining:

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool stratum-etc.antpool.com:8008 -ewal EthereumClassicWalletAddress -epsw x -eworker WorkerNumber -estale 0 -dpool stratum+tcp://dcr.antpool.com:9002 -dwal DCRWalletAddress.WorkerNumber -dpsw x -dcri 30

As shown below:

0015c6b7e5b8396ce860bb223242941

0015c6b7e63587255a3b248ce084a1f


Save the "start-ETH/ETC+DCR.bat" file after completing the modification and double-click to start mining.

 

【ASIC miner configuration】

At present, AntMiner DR3 and DR5 support DCR mining, their hash rate is dozens of times higher than GPU mining and the mining configuration is relatively simple. DR3 and DR5 can be purchased following this link: https://shop.bitmain.com.cn/,

1)obtain miner IP to login management backstage

Detailed instruction on how to download and how to use software (IP Reporter software) to obtain miner IP please refer to:

https://support.bitmain.com/hc/en-us/articles/360009263654-Where-and-how-to-use-IP-Reporter

After obtaining the miner IP, enter IP into the browser (recommended to use Google or Firefox browser), and you will be directed to the following interface, default username and password are both "root" (in lowercase):

 

2)  Set mining parameters

After logging into the management backstage, click on the Miner Configuration-General Settings page to modify the mining parameters.

Parameter Descriptions:

URL: stratum+tcp://dcr.antpool.com:9002

Worker: Fill in as "DCR Wallet Address.Woker Number"

Password: No need to modify (default password is 123 or x)
