Hello, guys! Today I want to share our ZCash mining guide. This testnet guide will get you ready for the ZCash launch!

Click here to go to the guide!

Feedback is more than welcome! Smiley Have fun!

"ZCash is an anonymous cryptocurrency that uses zk-snarks to ensure that all the information regarding user transactions is safely encrypted, while still verifiable by miners that can ensure no double-spending has taken place using zero knowledge proofs. ZCash is currently in the testnet phase and testnet ZCash has no value. The early bird gets the worm, however, and mining in the testnet is an excellent exercise to ensure that you're ready to start mining real ZEC coins as soon as possible! The testnet can be reset, which will cause your Zcash testcoins to disappear.

ZCash will use Equihash as an hashing algorithm, which is an asymmetric memory-hard PoW algorithm based on the generalized birthday problem. It relies on high RAM requirements to bottleneck the generation of proofs and making ASIC development unfeasible, much like Ethereum."

Immediately stopped reading at compiling the miner with Ubunto.

Stop making coins that require all that compiling and building the miner bullshit. Not all of us are hardcore computer geeks with a shit ton of programming knowledge.

Windows exe file or not interested.


Good guide overall tho.

Its no rush. When its finally released the reward will go from small to large so miners will have a few weeks to get  everything up and running. Not instamine.

For everybody interested in ZCASH Mining.

Their mining reward will be almost nothing during launch, it will slowly and slowly increase similar to LBRY. So you have a few weeks to get your gear ready. Right now there are no working GPU miners. Most likely it will be CPU only at launch and you will need a bunch of ram to get the mining started.

You sir are idiot. You can't make coins/programs without compiling. Compiling is natural thing especially with linux.

No real point to mine early.  The rewards ramp up from 0.2 coins / reward to 50 over the course of a few months anyway.

Coins made for CPU mining are the real cancer on the Crypto Coins.

Evervy coin that launch for CPU mining proves that are made for people that infect another people computers with virus/backdoor programs.
So, have a great potential to become a "Cracker's" coin.
If someone doubt that, see the great "monero" miners, a Huge number of zombies mining for 10 or less crackers.
