such beginner shibe thread wow how to get coin

 how to shibecoin v rich in minutes much instruct so simple any doge can do 

START HERE

UPDATE 1/21/14: I'm not updating this guide anymore. Most of the steps should still work though. See the wiki or check the sidebar for updated instructions.
Before you do anything else, you need to get a wallet. Until there's a secure online wallet, this means you need to download the dogecoin client.
Now open the client you just downloaded. You'll be given a default address automatically, and it should connect to peers and start downloading the dogechain (aka blockchain in formal speak). You'll know because there will be a progress bar at the bottom and at the lower right there should be a signal strength icon (TODO: add screenshots).
If you've waited 2 or 3 minutes and nothing is happening, copy this:
maxconnections=100 addnode=95.85.29.144 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=146.185.181.114 addnode=188.165.19.28 addnode=166.78.155.36 addnode=doge.scryptpools.com addnode=doge.netcodepool.org addnode=doge.pool.webxass.de addnode=doge.cryptopool.it addnode=pool.testserverino.de addnode=doge.luckyminers.com addnode=doge.cryptovalley.com addnode=miner.coinedup.comdoge addnode=doge.cryptoculture.net addnode=dogepool.pw addnode=doge.gentoomen.org addnode=doge.cryptominer.net addnode=67.205.20.10 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=78.46.57.132 
And paste it into a new text file called dogecoin.conf, which you then place into the dogecoin app directory.
Now restart your qt client and the blockchain should start downloading in about 1-2 minutes.
Once it finished downloading, you're ready to send and receive Dogecoins!

GETTING COINS

Decide how you want to get Dogecoin. Your options are:
I'll go into detail about each of these. I'm currently writing this out. I'll make edits as I add sections. Suggestions are welcome.

MINING

Mining is how new dogecoins are created. If you're new to crypto currencies, read this. To mine (also called "digging"), a computer with a decent GPU (graphics card) is recommended. You can also mine with your CPU, but it's not as efficient.

GPU MINING

These instructions cover only Windows for now. To mine, you'll need to figure out what GPU you have. It'll be either AMD/ATI or Nvidia. The setup for both is approximately the same.

Step One: Choose a pool

There's a list of pools on the wiki. For now it doesn't really matter which one you choose. You can easily switch later.
NOTE: You can mine in two ways. Solo mining is where you mine by yourself. When you find a block you get all the reward. Pool mining is when you team up with other miners to work on the same block together. This makes it more likely that you'll find a block, but you won't get all of it, you'll have to split it up with others according to your share of the work. Pool mining is recommended because it gives you frequent payouts, because you find more blocks. The larger the pool you join, the more frequent the payouts, but the smaller the reward you get.
Over a long period of time the difference between pool and solo mining goes away, but if you solo mine it might be months before you get any coins.

Step two: Set up pool account

The pool you chose should have a getting started page. Read it and follow the instructions. Instructions vary but the general idea is:
When you're done with this, you'll need to know:

Step three: Download mining software

For best performance you'll need the right mining software.
Unzip the download anywhere you want.

Step four: Set up miner

Create a text file in the same folder as your miner application. Inside, put the command you'll be running (remove brackets).
For AMD it's cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://: -u -p
For Nvidia it's cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://: -O :
Substitute the right stuff in for the placeholders. Then on the next line of the text file type pause. This will let you see any errors that you get. Then save the file with any name you want, as long as the file extension is .bat. For example mine_serverName.bat.

Step five: Launch your miner

Just open the .bat file and a command line window should pop up, letting you know that the miner is starting. Once it starts, it should print out your hash rate.
If you now go to the pool website, the dashboard should start showing your hashrate. At first it'll be lower than what it says in the miner, but that's because the dashboard is taking a 5 minute average. It'll catch up soon enough.
NOTE: A normal hashrate is between 50 Kh/s up to even 1 Mh/s depending on your GPU.

You're now mining Dogecoins

That's it, nothing more to it.

CPU MINING

CPU mining isn't really recommended, because you'll be spending a lot on more on power than you'd make from mining Dogecoin. You could better spend that money on buying Dogecoin by trading. But if you have free electricity and want to try it out, check out this informative forum post.

Trading

Trading has been difficult so far, but Dogecoin just got added to a few new exchanges. If you don't have a giant mining rig, this is probably the best way to get 100k or more dogecoins at the moment. I'll write up a more complete guide, but for now check out these sites:

Faucets

Faucets are sites that give out free coins. Usually a site will give out somewhere between 1 and 100 Dogecoin. Every site has its own time limits, but usually you can only receive coins once every few hours, or in some cases, days. It's a great way to get started. All you do is copy your address from the receive section of your wallet and enter it on some faucet sites. Check out /dogecoinfaucets for more. If you go to each site on there you might end up with a couple hundred Dogecoin!

Begging

This method is pretty straightforward. Post your receiving address, and ask for some coins. Such poor shibe. The only catch is, don't do it here! Please go to /dogecoinbeg.

Tips

At the moment there are two tip bots:
Other redditors can give you Dogecoin by summoning the tip bot, something like this:
+dogetipbot 5 doge
This might happen if you make a good post, or someone just wants to give out some coins. Once you receive a tip you have to accept it in a few days or else it'll get returned. Do this by following the instructions on the message you receive in your inbox. You reply to the bot with "+accept". Commands go in the message body. Once you do that, the bot will create a tipping address for you, and you can use the links in the message you receive to see your info, withdraw coins to your dogecoin-qt wallet, see your history, and a bunch of other stuff.
As a bonus, so_doge_tip has a feature where you can get some Dogecoins to start with in exchange for how much karma you have. To do this, send the message "+redeem DOGE" to so_doge_tip. You'll need to create a tipping account if you don't have one.
If you want to create a tipping account without ever being tipped first, message either of the bots with "+register" and an address will be created for you.

How to Earn Money Mining Virtual Currency With Your Average Computer - A Full Guide

Lately I've been exploring some alternatives to the typical grind that is online work. I've always followed Bitcoin pretty closely and knew of Bitcoin mining, but I was also aware of how difficult it's become. The difficulty is so high it's not even worth trying with the average computer. However, as of late there has been an explosion of new virtual coins. There are now hundreds (if not thousands) being mined. There is debate on how much of a help or hindrance all these altcoins are to the world of virtual currency, but regardless they open up a lot of chances to earn money with your average computers unused resources.
I decided to start digging into all the altcoins and find one that was new, easy to mine, had a solid and dedicated dev team, and a solid purpose so it's less likely to die off. What I ended up with was CasinoCoin. At the time it was sitting around $0.009 USD each, and fit all of my requirements. I took my two laptops with their i3 cpu's and no gpu's (20kH/s total) and set them to work mining at MooPool.com. A couple days later around the time I hit 300 coins the price jumped up to a peak of $0.11, and my poke at mining altcoin turned into $33. Now I'm not saying this is a ton of money, but consider the fact that I was only mining at 20kH/s on CPU's. Better computers (especially those with GPU's) will mine many more CasinoCoins.
So with my recent tests a success I figured I'd share my findings and make an easy guide to mining virtual currency. This quick guide will be done for CasinoCoin over at MooPool.com since it's my coin of choice, but can be applied to any virtual currency.
GPU Guide (You can run a miner for every GPU and CPU you have)
To my knowledge the most efficient GPU miner at the moment is CudaMiner
cuda miner is a miner specifically designed for Nvidia's architecture. Nvidia's cuda cores are not well suited for alt coin mining, so cuda miner helps you to get the most of Nvidia cards. If you have an AMD GPU, cgminer is what you want to use. -zekezander
Download the correct version for your machine and extract the archive to a folder somewhere convenient.
Open up notepad and paste in the following.
cudaminer.exe -q --algo=scrypt --url=stratum+tcp://stratum.moopool.com:3333 --userpass=kirk.Reddit.gpu:Narwhal
Now save it as StartMining.bat in the miner folder and run it.
You should start seeing blocks detected, and once the pool tunes into your hashing power you can check the hash rate of your shares to get a feel for what you're capable of.
-q is for quiet mode, when turned off you will see all of your hashing. When turned on you will only see your accepted shares and their total hash rates.
Now it's time to make an account at MooPool.com so we can customize the miner.
Start by adding a worker for each device you'll have mining.
Next we customize the bat file in the following manner.
Username & Password (--userpass account.worker:password)
(If you have multiple GPU's you may need additional changes to your bat file, I'm not sure how to set this up.)
Now save it and start it up. If you did everything correctly you should see you hash rate start to rise then average out on the websites dashboard. You are now helping to break "blocks" worth 50CSC each. When the pool breaks one it is distributed fairly to everyone who helped based on the amount of work they contributed. The faster the pool mines, the quicker we all get CSC.
Lastly you need to download a personal CSC wallet HERE so you can withdraw your funds. Once you have your wallet address remember to add it to your account and enable automatic payouts.
CPU Guide
To my knowledge the most efficient CPU miner at the moment is Pooler CPU Miner
Download the correct version for your machine and extract the archive to a folder somewhere convenient.
Open up notepad and paste in the following.
minerd.exe -o stratum+tcp://stratum.moopool.com:3333 -u kirk.Reddit.cpu -p Narwhal -q
Now save it as StartMining.bat in the miner folder and run it.
You should start seeing blocks detected, and once the pool tunes into your hashing power you can check the hash rate of your shares to get a feel for what you're capable of.
-q is for quiet mode, when turned off you will see all of your hashing. When turned on you will only see your accepted shares and their total hash rates.
Now it's time to make an account at MooPool.com so we can customize the miner.
Start by adding a worker for each device you'll have mining.
Next we customize the bat file in the following manner.
Username (-u account.worker) Password (-p Password)
Now save it and start it up. If you did everything correctly you should see you hash rate start to rise then average out on the websites dashboard. You are now helping to break "blocks" worth 50CSC each. When the pool breaks one it is distributed fairly to everyone who helped based on the amount of work they contributed. The faster the pool mines, the quicker we all get CSC.
Lastly you need to download a personal CSC wallet HERE so you can withdraw your funds. Once you have your wallet address remember to add it to your account and enable automatic payouts.
Turning your CSC into USD
In order to sell your CSC you will need to use an exchange. So far Cryptsy(Ref) - Cryptsy (Non-Ref) is the only site that does CSC exchanges. When you're happy with the price sell off your CSC for BTC. Next take your BTC and send it to CoinBase(Ref) - CoinBase(Non-Ref) where you can easily sell it for USD and have it sent to your bank account.
Hope this helps some of you out, Happy Mining!
If you found this of use and would like to donate these are my wallets, or you can just mine with the sample .bat launchers for a bit :)

[Update]: Fug, I was hacked.

The result of my malware scan, in particular the lines below, was very interesting. Obviously I can't tell if MalwareBytes is correct in flagging these. Some of them indicated "PUP.BitcoinMiner" which seems valid but others were marked as "Trojan.BitMiner.TS" or "PUP.Proxy.BCM" ... those may very well be valid downloads but I do know that MalwareBytes did not indicate ALL of the Bitcoin miners I had downloaded...

Why Dogecoin could succeed where Bitcoin Failed (Part Deux)

This is pretty long, and its a bit too broken up to do a TL;DR. My apologies for any inconveniences.
Quick-ish Disclaimer: By and large I don’t have any professional basis for what I am about to discuss. I have no degree in economics and certainly did not have the foresight to invest in Bitcoin a few years ago. I also do not claim to be as eloquent as the beautiful and talented goodshibe , but I figure it couldn’t hurt to write up another article, since the best part about the dog coin community is that everyone can get a word in and be listened to. Oh, and the first part of this is linked at the bottom, if you didn’t catch it. So, without any further adieu…
This article is going to be broken up into a few different sections based on topic.
Growth
Last time I wrote one of these the price of Dogecoin was about one sixth of what it is now, and the community was less than half the size that it is currently. At the time there was no Jamaican Bobsled team, no Sochi Olympics, and the Save Dogemas campaign was just starting to pick up steam (which is still 2.4 million short of its goal, so if you have any spare doge…). It sounds like ancient history now, but this was just under 16 days ago. Its insane to think that we’ve grown so much in such a short time, but at just over 50,000 shibes on reddit alone, I like to think we’ve shown the crypto world that we’re here to stay.
Community
You know, I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t been around to watch it happen. Like many others, I was introduced to cryptocurrency by Dogecoin. Unlike the large majority of the people here, I have been here from more or less the beginning; I remember the days of 20 satochi, of difficulty below 100. I was there in the age of the 3000000 Doge tip, when this community was just getting started. Even then , as a community of a few thousand, I was awed by the generosity and the good spirit of the community. As Dogecoin grew, I became concerned that the involvement of “real world money” would dampen the community; turning it from the lighthearted fun place it was into Wall Street 2.0. I am both happy and amazed to say that my fears were 100% unfounded; even with our astronomical growth, the spirit of the community remains intact, embodied by everyone from silentshibe to the thousands of us that have tipped 10 doge, 100 doge, or 100 doge. If you are reading this, YOU are the ones who have created a community unlike that of any other cryptocoin, YOU are the reason that Dogecoin is where it is today, and YOU are the reason we will go to the moon, together.
Services
Well, since the last time I wrote one of these, this category has come a long way. For a coin that is only six weeks old, we have developed an infrastructure beyond that of any other altcoin, besides possibility Litecoin. The big news this week was with Vault of Satochi, but quite a few people are ignorant to the fact that there are some marketplaces that now take Doge. Some of you may have seen the post about one of us who bought a Playstation 4 off of one of these sites. Remember, if we want dogecoin to be accepted as a currency, we have to use it as a currency. Another development is that (to my knowledge), moolah_ is developing some sort of cryptocurrency payment system, which is good for all coins, not just Dogecoin.
Other Coins
Be friendly, thats it, really. Remember that Bitcoin users have been fighting to gain acceptance for a long time, and its only natural for them to be a bit bitter about us coming out of nowhere and becoming a top currency in 6 weeks. Same goes for litecoin, I don’t imagine that they we’re thrilled to be overtaken in activity by a simple “litecoin knockoff” that they very much expected to be another pump-and-dump. As long as we keep friendly, we’re bound to win them over eventually. Until then, keep it, at the very least, civil.
Price
First off, DON'T PANIC. Anyone who has been watching cryptos knows that they are volatile. Remember, we’re only six weeks old, and not to long ago 25 satochis was the norm. Like I said, I’m no market spectator, but what I’m about to say is common sense: If we panic every time the price dips a bit, we’re not doing a whole lot to show that we trust in the currency. If we don’t believe in its stability, how are we going to convince others to? Listen, if you want dogecoin to succeed, to reach whatever your idea of “the moon” is, you need to show some confidence. Thats how you convince people we’re here for the long run; by holding on and not panicking every time the price dips. Remember, some of the people who stuck with bitcoin, no matter how bleak it looked, are millionaires now.
Other Thoughts
In regards to the whole “inflationary block reward” thing, remember that, technically, all cryptocoins are inflationary from year to year. At 5% in the first year, our rate of inflation is lower than that of Bitcoin or Litecoin, and will continue to be for some time.
Just for the record, I am not in fact a rich shibe, (at around 300k I’m hardly poor, but I’m no dogeillionare) despite getting in pretty early. For any newcomers reading this, the trick to stable income is to stick with one pool. If you have an AMD card, use CCMiner. If you have a Nvidia card, use CUDAminer. More info on that in /dogemining. Trust me, it’s a lot easier to get into if you have a guide, instead of trying to figure it out on your own, as I did.
On the off chance that all the naysayers are right, and this crashes someday, I just want you all to know what an experience it has been. With all the shit you hear about going on in the world, its nice to be able to come here and see nothing but people helping, tipping, and being kind. While I don’t want to come across as preachy, remember that the spirit of this community doesn't have to exist JUST in this community.
If you took the time to read all of this, thanks. If you skimmed, thanks. If you just want to go to the comments section to call me a dumbass, thats fine too. And again, if there is a demand, I’ll be happy to write some more for you guys.

Getting 160kH each on 5x750Ti rig... Please help a newbie

I got it running on my new rig on 5x750Ti. I am doing this for fun and the pleasure of building something. But am having trouble figuring out this issue.
When I had 2 cards connected (one in the x16 slot and the other on a powered riser) they where hashing at 295kH and 255kH.
When I connected 5 cards all the cards dropped to 150kH-160kH each. 4 cards on powered risers, 1 card in x16 slot. Could you please give me some suggestions...

How To Dig For DogeCoin With Your Average Computer - A Full Guide

Hello fellow doge's! I posted this guide over at /beermoney and and it received a huge amount of attention. I figured I would modify it for the the DogeCoin pool to help you guys out! Hopefully it helps some of you get started.
-Note* This guide was written for CasinoCoin, but I'll modify the information to apply to DogeCoin.
Lately I've been exploring some alternatives to the typical grind that is online work. I've always followed Bitcoin pretty closely and knew of Bitcoin mining, but I was also aware of how difficult it's become. The difficulty is so high it's not even worth trying with the average computer. However, as of late there has been an explosion of new virtual coins. There are now hundreds (if not thousands) being mined. There is debate on how much of a help or hindrance all these altcoins are to the world of virtual currency, but regardless they open up a lot of chances to earn money with your average computers unused resources.
I decided to start digging into all the altcoins and find one that was new, easy to mine, had a solid and dedicated dev team, and a solid purpose so it's less likely to die off. What I ended up with was CasinoCoin. At the time it was sitting around $0.009 USD each, and fit all of my requirements. I took my two laptops with their i3 cpu's and no gpu's (20kH/s total) and set them to work mining at MooPool.com. A couple days later around the time I hit 300CSC the price jumped up to a peak of $0.11, and my poke at mining altcoin turned into $33.

Now save it as StartMining.bat in the miner folder and run it.

Now save it and start it up. If you did everything correctly you should see you hash rate start to rise then average out on the websites dashboard. You are now helping to break "blocks" currently worth anywhere from 1 to 1,000,000DOGE each. When the pool breaks one it is distributed fairly to everyone who helped based on the amount of work they contributed. The faster the pool mines, the quicker we all get DOGE.
Lastly you need to download a personal DOGE wallet HERE so you can withdraw your funds. Once you have your wallet address remember to add it to your account and enable automatic payouts.

Next we customize the bat file in the following manner.
Username (-u account.worker) Password (-p Password)
Now save it and start it up. If you did everything correctly you should see you hash rate start to rise then average out on the websites dashboard. You are now helping to break "blocks" currently worth anywhere from 1 to 1,000,000DOGE each. When the pool breaks one it is distributed fairly to everyone who helped based on the amount of work they contributed. The faster the pool mines, the quicker we all get DOGE.
Lastly you need to download a personal DOGE wallet HERE so you can withdraw your funds. Once you have your wallet address remember to add it to your account and enable automatic payouts.
Turning your DOGE into USD
In order to sell your DOGE you will need to use an exchange. So far to my knowledge Cryptsy(Ref) - Cryptsy (Non-Ref) is the only site that does DOGE exchanges. When you're happy with the price sell off your DOGE for BTC. Next take your BTC and send it to CoinBase(Ref) - CoinBase(Non-Ref) where you can easily sell it for USD and have it sent to your bank account.
Hope this helps some of you out, Happy Mining!
If you found this of use and would like to donate these are my wallets, or you can just mine with the sample .bat launchers for a bit :)

40.5 TH/s already

and i'm solo mining at 11khs. it would take 2 years to find a block. i think someone already ported a GPU miner.

New Shibe, loving the community...

This is the first time I've posted on reddit. A few weeks ago, I started doing some research on altcoins. I had heard about bitcoin years ago, and have been kicking myself for some time for not jumping on it in the beginning. Wanting to get in fairly early on a coin, and looking at various scrypt coins, I stumbled across Dogecoin.
Upon doing a little more reading, and digging around this subreddit, I was hooked. Between a reasonable approach to cryptocurrency and a thriving, super friendly community, I felt like I found a coin that could fit me. I fired up my laptop, setup CUDAminer, and started mining Dogecoin at a whopping 47kh/s. When I saw my first 500D deposit into my wallet, I knew this was something I wanted to take further. A week later, and I've sunk a bit of fiat into more coin, and I have two 280x's on the way, and even though I've stretched myself thin financially, I couldn't be happier with this venture.
I have no idea how this is going to work out, but I'm crazy excited(and far more optimistic than I usually am)! See you all on the moon, fellow Shibes!

I bought 8 290Xs. What now?

I ponded whether or not to mine bitcoin, then the ASICs were announced. Luckily, I didn't preorder Butterfly Labs, but that whole scenario made me a skeptic. I pondered whether or not to buy a Bitcoin ASIC (the first month the terraminer was on Preorder), and I let that slip by. I pondered whether or not to mine Litecoin, and that slip by. I'm still very skeptical about Litecoin ASIC shipping times so in the meantime, I decided I will buy one when they are available to ship, not for preorder. Till then, I decided to force myself into purchasing high performing cards and mining. I think about things WAY too much and often end up convincing myself not to do them. There's no going back, I'm tired of looking into the water and trying to see if it's warm or not— debating whether I should dip my feet in. I've jumped in 8 graphics cards deep. I've been looking at building guides for months, but after mark-ups and outdated builds, I'm reaching out to see what builds would be good for mining with these 8 cards. Any links or advice would be very much appreciated.
SIDE NOTE: I have two GTX 690s I purchased for my incredibly powerful, yet amazingly irritating hackintosh, which I am now incredible frustrated and eventually will be turning in for a Mac Pro. I've been getting about 1150 KH/s with the two cards running CudaMiner on OS X or 530~560KHs Vert— Do you think it's worth it to keep the cards in my new build? Or sell them on eBay?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=291126412466
TL;DR
part 1: Bought 2 XFX/6 Sapphire 290Xs for $2400, $300 each, and I would like to know what is the most efficient, cheapest mining rig to build around it. I have looked at many guides (not the software quite yet), I am open to using Linux as I hear that is the best and would preferably like to be able to control the units remotely.
part 2: I also have access to two GTX 690s hashing at 1150kh/s scrypt, 530~560KHs scrypt-N— is it worth running these if I have access to free electricity? Or should I sell them on ebay?

Is it working?

So i recently picked up mining dogecoins and i only got 120Kash/s with CUDAminer. Though i had tried bitcoin the otherday and i used GUIMiner and had about 90Mhash/s.
So now im using GUIminer to mine dogecoins and it says it mines ad 92Mhash/s but on the pools site it says that my worker isnt mining at all.
So I was wondering if im even mining at all?
P.S sorry for bad grammar

Perspective from a new Shibe

This subreddit is getting very popular recently, and I'm one of the newest subscribers. I thought I'd say hello and give a little background on how I got here.
I've known about Bitcoin since almost the beginning, but never bothered to learn much about it or get involved - then it exploded. Recently I took a second look at cryptocurrencies and found that there were a bunch more out there, including Dogecoin. I thought, "Well, maybe it's not too late to get in on an altcoin and still make a little bit of cash." The two that looked most appealing were Mooncoin and Dogecoin.
I got a wallet and hit some water bowls, then decided to buy. But the exchanges are a pain (get verified, buy BTC, trade for DOGE), and /dogemarket seemed overpriced and risky. How about mining? I installed cudaminer on my PC and mined about 3.5k in a week (much hashrate), then looked into buying a REAL mining rig. But the cost, risk, and the upcoming block reward halving made me hesitant. I didn't want to drop a bunch of money into hardware that might not even be able to pay for the substantial electricity it uses.
The more I learned, the more it seemed like investing for profit was just a little too risky for my taste. But all the while, I kept reading /dogecoin. I read post after post on ways to bring new Shibes into the community, grow and stabilize the market, and protect it from manipulation. I saw the lightning-fast effort to help fund the Jamaican Bobsled team. I watched people throwing tips around like mad. I suddenly realized that there's something more here than just a bunch of people trying to get rich.
This is a community that wants to make Dogecoin a viable currency while having fun and doing some good along the way. I think that's what TO THE MOON means, and I think I want to be a part of it.

How to Nvidia GPU mine ReddCoin on Windows

I thought would put together another tutorial for anyone looking to get started with mining ReddCoin's. it is a bit of a plug for my own mining pool rdd.surmine.com, but you're free to mine of another pool, the process is pretty much the same.
Once broken down into individual parts the whole process is quite simple and should only take less than half an hour to start mining.
The process can be broken down into the following stages:

Stage 1: Setup ReddCoin Wallet

  1. Goto reddcoin.com , click on "Wallets" then click "Windows", save the zip file to your PC.
  2. Once Downloaded, open the zip file, within that go into the ReddCoin folder then "32", launch the ReddCoin setup .exe and you will be presented with the ReddCoin Setup Wizard. Setup Image 1
  3. Click Next and leave the Destination folder ( you can customize the destination if you like) Setup Image 2
  4. Click Install. Setup Image 3
  5. Once the package is installed click Next then and Finish. Setup Image 4
  6. On launch you may get a firewall error, Click Allow access. (Only enable Public networks is you have to )
  7. Your ReddCoin wallet is now running. It may show "No block source available" in the bottom left corner, give it 15 mins and it should connect to the network, if not check your firewall settings. Once you see "Synchronizing with network" in the bottom left you know you are good. Setup Image 5
  8. Click the Receive tab and write down your ReddCoin address, this is your address to receive coins. Setup Image 6

Stage 2: Create Mining Pool account.

There are multiple pools you can choose from but as I run a mining pool I might as well plug my own rdd.suremine.com , If you would like to use another the following steps will work with another pool.
  1. Point your browser at rdd.suremine.com, in the top right hand corner of the page click "Guest" then "Sign Up". Account Image 1
  2. Complete the registration form, make sure you choose a good password that is unique to this poll, write down the PIN, as if you lose it you lose your coins! Account Image 2
  3. Check your email and Click the email verification link, if you can't see the email check your spam folder.
  4. Login to your account and Click "My Account" then click "Edit Account" On the Left Hand Nav. Enter your PIN and click unlock. This will create a confirmation email you will need to click. Account Image 3
  5. Check your email and Click the email verification link, if you can't see the email check your spam folder.
    • Set your payment address ( the one you copied down when you created your wallet).
    • Set your Donation Percentage ( this helps keep the pool running).
    • Set your automatic payout threshold ( low to start with to see the funds come through).
    • Insert your pin again.
    • Click Update Account. Account Image 4
  6. On the Left Hand Navigation bar click "My Account" then "My Workers". Enter a worker name and password (these can be anything you like). Account Image 5
  7. Click Add New Worker and the page will refresh with your worker details, note both the worker login and worker password down. you will need both of these later. Account Image 7

Stage 3: Install CPU Miner

Before you install the GPU Mining Application you want to make sure you are running off the latest Nvidia Drivers.
  1. Go to the Cuda miner page on BitCoin talk and download the latest package.
  2. Create a folder in C:/ called GPUminer. Install Image 1
  3. Once Downloaded, unzip the file, go into to cduaminer-2014-02-28 then into x86 and drag the contents of the zip file into the GPUminer folder. By the time you're doing this the date of 2014-02-28 may have changed to a newer version, that's good news!) Install Image 2
  4. Open up notepad and insert the following text, you want to replace the worker login and the worker password with the values you noted down earlier. cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://uk.suremine.com:5555 -u USERACCOUNT.WORKERUSER -p WORKERPASS pause Install Image 3
  5. Select File > Save as then save the file to c:/GPUmine as gpuminer.bat. Install Image 4

Stage 4: Mine

  1. From the C:/GPUminer double click gpuminer.bat this will open a window. after a few minutes you should start seeing accepted transactions. All accepted transactions are good. Mine Image 1
Debugging

Performance Tuning

If you are looking to get the most out of your Nvidia card you can update gpuminer.bat with config from the Nvidia Comparison Table

Any type of advice or help would be gladly accepted, for a brand new cryptocoin user and miner.

I chose to start using cryptocoins today, as I'd been seeing them around for a while but had yet to join in. To get things straight, I am foetus tier new to this, and still very confused. Would gladly accept advice and I do have a few questions that could hopefully be answered.
Q1) My GPU is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti, will this be good enough to get a decent minerate off of and is there anyway I can improve the rate of mining.
Q2) I seemed to have been mining in this pool for a while (~1hour or so) yet I have yet to make an inkling of a 0.00001 of a vert coin, or any sign of one being added to my wallet. Is this normal, and when could I expect some sort of vertcoin?
Q3) How likely is it that vertcoin will rise in value, and is it worth saving up and investing for a while and hoping for bitcoin levels of increase in value?
Q4) What does it mean when I't says in the cmd.exe of the cudaminer 1-stratum detected new block and 2-accepted (numbenumber [e.g 1/1]) 100.00% yay!! And why is it increasing in number as I progress.
Thanks for any possible advice you can give, it would be much appreciated. p.s sorry for poor formatting, it's my second post on reddit, bit of a spring chicken when it comes to posting as well.

CUDAMiner Optimization Basics

I've posted this information a lot recently to new miners with NVIDIA cards. This subreddit seemed like the right home for it, and hopefully this is will serve as a helpful starting place to clarify the very basics and get people started.
As always, watch your GPU core temperatures closely. Lower hash rates correlate to lower operating temperatures. Play with these features to adjust your hash rate according to the load your GPU can handle. For example, one of my cards has better cooling than the other, so I run them at different hash rates to keep them both in the temperature range that I'm comfortable with.
Getting Started (Windows Environment):
  1. Download and install the latest NVIDIA Drivers.
  2. Download and extract the latest version of cudaMiner (SEE BITCOINTALK - CUDAMINER LINK BELOW) .
  3. Create a new text file in the same directory as cudaminer.exe (x32 or x64, depending on your system).
  4. Open text file and enter your configuration into the new batch file (See below for samples. Change settings to match your specific set-up):
  5. Change text file extension to .bat
  6. Execute batch file (not the executable).
  7. ???
  8. To exit, CTRL+C to break, wait, then Y to exit OR press the "Red X"; If the the command window closes immediately, add "pause" to the end of the batch script to view the error.
  9. If running x64 version, try x32 version and compare results.
  10. !!!
  11. Profit
Common Errors
Error Possible Cause
Command prompt window flashes and closes. Usually indicates bad syntax or attempting to launch executable. Review batch script settings. Add "pause" to end of batch script to view error.
Stratum Authentication Failed / "HTTP Request failed; No Error" Indicates connection issue. Review server address & user credentials.
Memory error / Result doesn't validate on CPU / Error 30 (Indicates launch configuration is invalid/not optimal. Change launch configuration flags. Update drivers.
"json_rpc_call failed" You are launching the executable; you cannot do this. Create and launch using batch script instead.
:::Sample Configurations (EDIT TO MATCH YOUR SPECIFIC CREDENTIALS & GPU SETTINGS) :::Single GPU ::SingleGPU.bat cudaminer.exe -i 1 -C 1 -m 1 -H 1 -l auto -o stratum+tcp://YOUR.POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O USER.WORKER:WORKERPW :::Multi GPU, Multi Command Prompt ::GPU0.bat (Address/Login for Standard Pool Mining, 1st GPU) cudaminer.exe -d 0 -i 1 -C 1 -m 1 -H 1 -l auto -o stratum+tcp://YOUR.POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O USER.WORKER:WORKERPW ::GPU1.bat (Address/Login for P2Pool Mining, 2nd GPU) cudaminer.exe -d 1 -i 1 -C 1 -m 1 -H 1 -l K4x32 -o stratum+http://YOUR.P2POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O WALLETADDRESS:ANYPW :::Multi GPU, Single Command Prompt ::DoubleGPU.bat cudaminer.exe -d 0,1 -H 1,1 -i 1,1 -l K3x9,K4x32 -C 1,1 -o stratum+tcp://YOUR.POOL.ADDRESS:#### -O USER.WORKER:WORKERPW 
Fundamental Flags:
  • FLAGS ARE CASE SENSITIVE
Setting -flag (Options) Description
cudaminer.exe N/A Call to execute cudaMiner
Specify Device -d (Any, counts from 0) Only for multi-GPU configurations: create multiple .bat files or use comma separated values.
Interactive Mode -i (0/1) When enabled, it reduces GPU utilization and hash rate to allow for computer use during mining
Enable Texture Cache -C (0/1/2) (Disabled, 1-D Caching, 2-D Caching) may increase or reduce hash rate, available according to your compute capability - check WIKI CUDA LINK BELOW
Memory Batching -m (0/1) Consolidates hash work into a single memory block and can lead to lower memory usage. Is implicitly enabled with Texture Caching.
Hash Parallel -H (0/1/2) (CPU Only, CPU Assist, GPU Only) determines how much work will be shared by the CPU. Defaults to GPU Only (2) if not specified.
Launch Configuration^ -l (auto/G/GBxW) Autotune, autotune for card generation, or specify particular setting. Defaults to autotune if not specified.
Server URL -o Address:Port Full URL of the mining server you wish to connect to.
Device Credentials -O User:Pass Username (or Username.Workername for pools) & password pair for the mining server for your device.
Debug-Benchmark Mode& -D --benchmark Verbose output to view block/warp chart and test a configuration.
  • NOTE ^ : This option is they key to tuning your hash rate and resulting GPU temperature. Choosing "auto" will enable autotuning, allowing cudaMiner to choose the best config. Choosing just "G," card generation code, will autotune for that specific card generation. "GBxW" is the specific setting you choose for the card where "BLOCK" is the row #, "WARP" is the Column number in autotune chart. Your BLOCKxWARP value should not exceed your maximum core configuration (WIKI GPU LIST BELOW), otherwise cudaMiner will crash/return error. For best results, the BLOCKxWARP value should be an exact multiple of your core config.
-For example NVIDIA GT 750M, Kepler card, row 4, column 32 is K4x32 (4x32=128). This is exactly 1/3 of and does not exceed the max core config of 384). 
  • NOTE & : Autotuning reported hashrates are not always accurate, but you can use the results in the benchmark table to choose the ballpark hash rate you desire. If you define a setting or allow it to complete the autotuning, it will then begin the benchmark and show you the average hashrate once you end the sesion (CTRL+C). Before closing the command prompt, you can scroll back up and save a screenshot of the block table. Type "Y" after ending to close the program. Remember to turn OFF the flag -D --benchmark after you are done. This is benchmark mode; cudaMiner will not connect to the pool until you remove this flag

PC GPU's Can Mine Cryptocurrencies when not Gaming. Consoles Sit Useless

You've invested money building a slick gaming PC? Unbeknownst to you, you've probably inadvertently built a great PC for mining Crypto currencies like Dogecoin, Litecoin, Darkcoin, Vertcoin, and thousands of others.
You can convert electricity into coins, and if you want you can trade these coins for Bitcoin or even USD.
New coins are launched everyday and during the first few hours/days of a coin launch it is easy to acquire a large share. If you do your research you can potentially get a large share of a coin that will build value.
For reference a single R9 270 card can produce ~1000 Dogecoins a day. Not much in USD value, but an easy way to dip your feet into a new hobby that utilizes hardware you've already invested in. You can mine whenever you aren't gaming.
I've been a PC buildegamer my whole life. I got into Crypto mining this January, and at first I was nervous about damaging components by running them so hard continuously, at rather high temperatures (80C). Well its been 6 months and there are no hardware stability issues. 6 Cards running at ~80C 24/7 for 6months. They run flawlessly. Thermal paste could probably be re-applied now. The point is, if you have a clean PC and know how to troubleshoot hardware you aren't going to damage your computer or graphics cards. Its been argued that gaming stresses the GPU's more because the load is changing high-low, whereas mining is constant high.
Anyways you want to know:
How can I start mining?
There are so many coins where do I start?
Dogecoin is the easiest coin to start mining (not necessarily most profitable) so we will start there and after you learn with Doge you can expand to new horizons.
Register at your pool. Create a worker. Go to the "getting started page" and copy the host "stratum+tcp://stratum.rapidhash.net" and port number "3333" and then you can enter your workepassword details and start mining. You can then carefully adjust your parameters to increase your mining speed. Increasing intensity too high can crash your card. Check out the configuration settings in this guide for approximately optimal settings for your GPU
If this sounds like a lot of work then this might not be the hobby for you. If you are interested about maximizing the potential of your gaming hardware and want to enter a new and engaging hobby, this might be the right place to start. Its also another thing that PC gamers can do that Consoles really fail at.
Now get into those mines and start digging!

My copper Dogecoin...

My copper Dogecoin sits in my front pocket most days, often in my hands during meetings with clients where said hands need something to do. It not only reminds me of this awesome currency, but the indescribably amazing community behind it.
There's stuff like Doge4Water, and HumbleDoge, which are truly incredible, bridging a gap between technology and social change in a very powerful and immediate way. And every day, here on Reddit and in countless IRCs, I see tips flying around, getting bigger and bigger. Some as giveaways, some for fun and laughs, some for advice and tech assistance. But the ones that stick with me are when I see a shibe who has suffered some loss in coin or equipment or otherwise, and the Dogecoin community steps up to donate. I get hundreds of those moments in a single second feeling when I hold my copper Dogecoin.
Sure, when I hold my copper Dogecoin, I also think about the frustrations and countless hours tweaking bfg, then cg, then cudaminer. Learning exactly how much voltage was too much and precisely which speeds crash the driver. Then all the angst that's come with deciding to try the DualMiners. But even this warrants a smile when Doge is in the palm of my hand.
But then there's people like Tony Pepperoni who went out of the way to help me sort out a paper wallet import issue, without a second thought. Yet another example among countless like it.
Today I could sit with some clients and friends, and discuss not only their work with an international figure in social change, but how my "Bitcoin hobby," as they describe it, is taking some very powerful steps towards social progress too. This maybe makes me smile the most.
Maybe the value will go up. Maybe it stays where it is now. Maybe later this year the high-powered Scrypt miners hit the market, and we're mined up sooner than we all thought. I'll still carry my copper Dogecoin with pride, and know that every time I touch it, I'll feel all of this in an instant, and grin like a fool.
To the moon.

Dogecoin made me a better person!

I am just 12 hours into my dogecoin experience and I have to say this crypto-family has made me a better person. Let me explain how the unique magic of dogecoin has improved my life, much so, wow.
First, like many of you on reddit I am decent with computers. However I switched to Mac OS X for college as i was creating multi-media. I never knew the OS like i did for windows until dogecoin came around. I also liked the idea of crypto-currency but never got into bitcoin because.... actually I don't really know why, but dogecoin was way to inviting so i decided to try it.
I have run both windows and mac on my computer now so i started up my wallet and synced it! WOW! only a couple hours to sync compared to bitcoin, where i watched my buddy wait days for his wallet to sync.
Then I have an NVIDIA card so from some research I got cuda miner going and made some batch scripts and got into my first pool.
SUCH NICE to see doge coins accumulate while mining together. I am now hooked. However, I do like MAC OS X better now so how can i get this going on MAC?
I used some programs like asteroid and mac miner but hashrate was too low. Now I was forced to make my first shell script. This may make some laugh but I jumped to the moon when it worked! Now i have CPUminer and CUDAminer working on my mac side with such success. I am having the time of my life (online).
I cashed out some dogecoin and now I register with tipbot to try tipping people. Someone reply so I can send my first tip!
I WANT to tip, that's another thing strange about this whole community.
All in all, my computer hackzors elite skills have reached new heights and my altruism too. So can't understand, wont much need to, such nice confusion.
TOOOO THE MOOON!
P.S. I can probably help other MAC OS X NVIDA people out with mining.

Step 7. Click Add New Worker and the page will refresh with your worker details, note both the worker login and worker password down. you will need both of these later. Account Image 6
Stage 3: Install CPU Miner
Before you install the GPU Mining Application you want to make sure you are running off the latest Nvidia Drivers.
Step 1. Go to the Cuda miner page on BitCoin talk and download the latest package.
Step 2. Create a folder in C:/ called GPUminer. Install Image 1
Step 3. Once Downloaded, unzip the file, go into to cduaminer-2014-02-28 then into x86 and drag the contents of the zip file into the GPUminer folder. By the time you're doing this the date of 2014-02-28 may have changed to a newer version, that's good news!) Install Image 2
Step 4. Open up notepad and insert the following text, you want to replace the worker login and the worker password with the values you noted down earlier.
cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://uk.suremine.com:3333 -u USERACCOUNT.WORKERUSER -p WORKERPASS pause
