How to Start Mining Aeternity

Choose your mining server:

Region Share Diff Server Status
By default or if in doubt which share difficulty to choose, choose the lower one. We recommend the high share difficulty if you mine with more than 500 GPU's. If you mine using Nicehash you should always choose the high share difficulty. Share difficulty doesn’t affect miner rewards. Read more.

Step 1 - Create a wallet

You could use the official AE wallet or generate an address at a crypto exchange, for example Binance or Gate.io.

Step 2 - Download mining software

For Nvidia and AMD GPU's we recommend GMiner (Guide - How to use GMiner).
Quick start - Download ready to go version of the GPU Miner (archive password - 2miners).

Step 3 - Edit the bat file

Use YOUR_ADDRESS that you've created on Step 1.
Example: ak_dArxCkAsk1mZB1L9CX3cdz1GDN4hN84L3Q8dMLHN4v8cU85TF
If you want, you can Change RIG_ID in the bat file. Specify the name of the rig as you want it to be shown in miner's statistics page. This field is not mandatory. You could leave it empty.
Length of RIG_ID - Maximum 32 characters. Use English letters, numbers and symbols "-" and "_".
Example: rig-1
