Miner Maniac
× February 20th, 2018
Miner Maniac now supports a much wider range of mining difficulties in order to cater to small, medium, and large operations! Check out the
"Getting Started" page for connection details. Also, we're aiming to release the new website this week. We're VERY close!

Step 1 - Obtain a Wallet Address

You will need a wallet address for the coin you wish to mine before getting started. The wallet address you provide will be where we send your share of the block reward.

Step 2 - Download & Install Mining Software

If you don’t have mining software already installed, you’ll want to download mining software that’s optimized for your type of GPU (AMD or NVIDIA). There are a number of miners available to choose from. We’ve listed a few of them below for your convienience:

EWBF (NVIDIA)
DSTM (NVIDIA)
Bminer (NVIDIA/AMD)
Claymore's ZCash/BTG GPU Miner (AMD)
Optiminer (AMD)

Step 3 - Configure Miner and Start Mining!
