So a few people have been having trouble getting to grips with mining this new and amazing crypto-currency. So I thought I would write a short guide for you all. This guide is for CPU mining on a windows machine however, with a couple modifications, it can be applied to mac and linux to.


Step 1. Head over to this forum post to download an optimized version of cpuminer that we will be using to mine with.

Step 2. Extract the zip into a folder where you will set it up, I personally chose to place this on my desktop and call it "Doge Miner".


Step 3. Head over to a mining pool and sign up using the registration form. There is a great poll with an up-to-date list of Dogecoin pools and how well they are rated over in this forum post which should help you out.


Step 4. After you have registered you need to create a worker, go to the "My Workers" page and create a new one with the username "1" and the password "x".


Step 5. This is where it starts to differ for mac and linux. On Windows open up notepad and type the following in, replacing the bits in caps with the corresponding information.
Code:
minerd --url=stratum+tcp://POOL-ADDRESS:PORT --userpass=USERNAME.WORKERNAME:WORKERPASS
pause
So, for example, if I was using the doge.cryptovalley.com pool and my username was cainy393, my worker name was 1 and my worker pass was x my batch file would look as follows:
Code:
minerd --url=stratum+tcp://server1.cryptovalley.com:3333 --userpass=cainy393.1:x
pause
(The pause is not needed, i simply put it in just in case something doesn't work and then you can see what the error message says before the window closes.)
You can find the port of your pool by checking the "Getting Started" page. It is usually 3333.
Obviously this process is slightly different on mac and linux, but you want a file that will execute the minerd program with the parameters above still the same, which shouldn't be too difficult top figure out for you.


Step 6. Save this as a file that will execute in your commands line, on windows this is a batch (.bat file). So, on Windows, click file > save as and then type run.bat in the file name box (you can call it anything but i like run).


Step 7. Mine away! Double click your run.bat file to start mining and watch the Doge start rolling in. If you have any questions or issues feel free to leave a reply and I will do what I can to help. Thanks!


If you're feeling generous then maybe you can mine using my worker and mine me a few doge :p using the credentials below:
server1.cryptovalley.com:3333
cainy393.2:x

Donations are welcome!!! :p

This should work for essentially any scrypt coin, which is basically all the other alt coins so yes is the short answer.

That means your login credentials are incorrect. Make sure your you are putting your username on the pool followed by a . followed by the worker name, which in the tutorial I suggested you make a 1. Then a : followed by your password, again I suggested you make this x.
So, if your me and your username is cainy393 on the pool's website and your worker name is one and your worker password is x then you login credentials are as follows:
Code:
cainy393.1:x
Just to stress my point, here is a screenshot of how this appears on the "My Workers" page:


Hope this helps  Smiley

screenshot it? maybe post your run.bat file contents here so I can have a look?
Are you sure that boo wasn't just an orphaned block or something, did it start to work after that?

minerd --url=stratum+tcp://mine2.coinmine.pl:6020 --userpass=weblogin.worker:password

I changed the loging and password back for posting reasons.  The "boooo" would continue over and over.

BTW, trying this for securecoin

First off, dont worry about revealing your worker name and password, all anyone could do if they knew it is mine for you haha. Secondly, can you either screenshot the log or copy and paste it so we can see exactly what its saying.

It's not accepting your blocks, maybe try another pool?

Looks like you've missed a 3 off the end of the port number. It should be 3333.

Great advice on switching pools, after I did that it went through with no problems.  When it begins mining, there are batches of missed threads and then it will miss all threads after several minutes and I have to restart the miner program.  I am using an laptop just to get a feel for mining and don't expect any valuable returns.

Great advice on switching pools, after I did that it went through with no problems.  When it begins mining, there are batches of missed threads and then it will miss all threads after several minutes and I have to restart the miner program.  I am using an laptop just to get a feel for mining and don't expect any valuable returns.

What do you mean it misses threads? There is nothing wrong with the log above.

They will be in your account on the pool you registered for. When you hit the withdrawal limit (most seem to have a limit of 10000 DOGE) you will be able to withdraw them to your DOGE wallet. I assume you have the dogecoin-qt client but if not download it here and then you will have an address to withdraw your earnings to. You can edit your address in the "Edit Account" page by pasting it in and entering your pin number to confirm identity.

The bottom part of the log continues the same with no "yays" until I restart.  Is that normal, and am I getting shares for mining if it isn't saying "yay"?

not sure to be honest with you, mine just has the odd yay every few lines. Keep an eye on your pool for a couple hours and see if you get anything.

Hashrate is starting to get a bit high for cpu mining to be effective at current growth rate.  I got on with one of my old gpu's early on and am sitting quite a lot of them, but I have definitely noticed a drastic slowdown lately as the hashrates in general are skyrocketing.

That's just how it works, You get paid each time your pool is rewarded, which isn't for every block, its random every now and then. And at that point in time your pool will reward you for how much work you contributed to that block.

You're right, the network hash rate is going to peak over the 10 GH/s mark very soon. CPU mining isn't the best way right now although I get around 40KH/s with mine so its still kinda worth it.

Finally i got it ! Well how many workers i can add on pool ? currently i have 4 computer but problem is i have only 1 internet connection with 1 IP so just wanted to know can i add 4 more computer to same pool by adding workers and pass such as below !

1 -> worker 1 password x
2 -> worker 2 password x
3 -> worker 3 password x
4 -> worker 4 password x

And then i have to run.bat file from every computer ! Example -> for PC 2 i have to use ( worker 2 password x ) and for other's same ? And if i having same ip address it won't work ?

Thank you !

Of course! That's how workers are intended to be used. Having a different worker for each computer allows you to monitor them individually using the pools control panel.

Sometimes you get orphan blocks and you don't get paid for them, no one does. See this article about the bitcoin block chain for further explanation (obviously the same applies to doge essentially).

Hi just started getting into mining because I'm intrigued by the whole currency thing. When I wanted to start mining I ran into some problems and was hoping one of you could help.

heres my .bat file and I keep getting the message failed to connect to server1.cyrptovalley.com and I'm not sure how to fix it?

minerd --url=stratum+tcp://server1.cryptovalley.com:3333 --userpass=pakosb12.1:x
pause

Any help is greatly apprciated! Thank you!

....To the moon!

Edit: Since I have last posted I have got it to start mining and I'm very excited but I am only at a Khash of 5. Is there any way to boost that? I feel like 5 is extremely sad.

The mining sometimes works and I would get coins but a lot of the time, it would stop working and say cannot connect to server1...etc. Is there a fix to this? I am not getting as much of an output as I expected. It is not as efficient as I see in other people and I would maybe have a successful output 1/10 times. Anyone have a solution?

not to be the partypooper here but... is it really at all useful to cpu mine dogecoins at this point? The difficulty is high enough that you will barely make much even with 1 pretty decent GPU doing many times the hashes/sec your CPUs are

Hey guys, could you explain a little more about the mining process? I mean, I dont understand quite much of whats REALLY happening there..

eg:

Stratum detected new block
Thread 0: 42423 hashes, 4.122 yhash/s

(..)

accepted:135/140 (96.40%), 2.04% (yay!!)



..what happens when it gets to 100%?


Sorry for the silly questions, but I would love to understand more of whats really happening there, lol Tongue

Everyone has a different definition of "worth it"
I CPUmine for 40 Doges a day, Is it worth it?
If Doges go to $10, 40 X 10 = 400, $400 a day is worth it.
If you need to sell your Doges @ 0.00021973 to pay for electricity,
well, no, it's not worth it, I suppose.
BTW: I mine BTC @30gh and think that is worth it also,
again, I see this as investment in my future, not a paying job today.

accepted:135/140 (96.40%), 2.04% (yay!!)



..what happens when it gets to 100%?


Sorry for the silly questions, but I would love to understand more of whats really happening there, lol Tongue

135/140 means of the 140 shares submitted 135 are accepted thus the 96.40% acceptance it won't get to 100.. Let it run and don't worry about it unless the % gets way bad like 80's

I tried it with hashfaster on a throwback laptop just to test things and this guide worked! Although this throwback won't be used for mining.

not to be the partypooper here but... is it really at all useful to cpu mine dogecoins at this point? The difficulty is high enough that you will barely make much even with 1 pretty decent GPU doing many times the hashes/sec your CPUs are

Everyone has a different definition of "worth it"
I CPUmine for 40 Doges a day, Is it worth it?
If Doges go to $10, 40 X 10 = 400, $400 a day is worth it.
If you need to sell your Doges @ 0.00021973 to pay for electricity,
well, no, it's not worth it, I suppose.
BTW: I mine BTC @30gh and think that is worth it also,
again, I see this as investment in my future, not a paying job today.

if doge goes up to 10 cents we will all shit our pants. never mind 10 dollars.... 10 dollars are you out of your mind lol?

Before to all, cainy393, thank very much for excellent tutorial.

Guys I have a little problem, after my cpu miner is working I see that my worker is now actived, What could be wrong?

keep it open  and let it run until you see (yay!!!)... if it doesn't happen within the first 10 minutes I recommend moving your hashing power to https://www.multipool.us

Thank you mrdeposit, now is activated.



But a stratum_recv_line failed message is present. Let see multupool.us, thank you again.

So I've not been around as much as I would have hoped recently and just wanted to clear a few things up having read through the recent posts. Recently I've not been at all happy with the service from cryptovalley and so I would recommend a different pool and I will be updating the thread accordingly. A lot of you are having connection issues due to using that pool and no other reason. Apologies, I did recommend this pool at the time as it was the best I had found but they have gone down hill since. Currently I use multipool.us - either for their profit switching mining pool or just for the dogecoin specific pool (their website lists different ports to use if you just want to stick to one currency rather than auto-switching) however they do charge a fair old rate on withdrawals and so you may want to look around yourself and be sure to check out the miners and withdrawal fees to make sure they aren't too bad.

Mining on your CPU for dog isn't anywhere near as profitable as it used to be, back when I wrote this tutorial my 50 KH/s that I got from my CPU was enough to get me a couple thousand a day but it certainly isn't anymore (bare in mind the price of doge was only like 30 satoshis at the time so it still wasn't great. However, that doesn't mean that those of you who are simply curious about the currency can't just give it a little go Smiley.

These days the only real way to effectively mine doge is with a fairly decent GPU (graphics card), for example my new GTX 760 which can mine at 250 KH/s but even that isn't exactly going to make you rich or anything. Plus, baring in mind the card set me back £200 it certainly isn't something to try and invest in.

I'll try put together a GPU mining tutorial for Doge in the next couple days if you have a GPU and are interested. It's a fairly similar process but is complicated by the variety of graphics cards around and the varying software required to utilize such cards. Anyhow, if I do write a tutorial for it I'll be sure to post here to update you all.

good stuff cainy we need more posters like you around.

I will also tip you some DOGE after the GPU tutorial is done also.

good work mate.

It would be cheaper to use your CPU to mine for MemoryCoin (MMC), convert to BTC and buy DOGE.

Here's a great 24 hours comparison done by ReviewOutlaw for ALL CPU COINS.
http://www.reviewoutlaw.com/most-profitable-cpu-coin-list-alt-coin-profits-24-hours-mining/

Guess who the winner is? Smiley
MemoryCoin of course!

Here's another thread explaining how to CPU mine MMC efficiently:

Haven't heard about MemoryCoin (MMC) yet?

if you have a very low hash rate (such as cpu mining doge) eventually won't you not get any coins at all? Because as the difficulty rises and rewards drop, your contribution shares will be so small that you will not have contributed enough work on the current block to be entitled to even 1 doge?

Thanks Smiley, 15 minutes and it was mining for me - versus Maxcoin where I was working for 10 hours over 2 days and no coins  Sad

Wow. End this thread. You must explain the risk to the computer...

Many of these Doge miners are younger, and newer to the crypto world. Note the guy above who says his 40 doge coins hes mining could be worth 10$ in the future, so "yeh 400$ a day is worth it."

The energy and declining hardware costs are huge. 40 Doges a day, even at a short term miracle price of 1 cent/doge (10x current market cap, and would require Doge to be receiving more NEW invested money per day than BTC currently is) isn't worth it. Not even close.

Once Doge is more valuable than BTC (thats an if), not only will it be harder to get as many Doges per day with your CPU, but it will finally almost be worth it to mine with your CPU.

I'm not the biggest fan of Memorycoin and I agree with the guy above^. Mine it, sell it, buy your favorite crypto or hold BTC.

You're right that it is not exactly viable to mine doge using your CPU anymore. However when this post was written it was worth it and the post stands as example of sorts. Plus this technique can be applied to any Scrypt algorithm alt-coin in practice and so is still of use.

Newbie here just wondering If you could advise me If I am doing the right thing or is there no point continuing with this pool/mining.


That's absolutley fine, the little (yay!!!) things mean that your share was accepted. Therefore everything is working fine. You may get the occasional (boooo) but so long as it isn't every time that's fine. You are unlikely to make a lot of profit from that kind of hashing power it is still a novelty as I keep saying.

I like CPU mining.  Easy to setup.  Cheesy  I wish difficulty wasn't so high for so many of the coins. Undecided

if doge goes up to 10 cents we will all shit our pants. never mind 10 dollars.... 10 dollars are you out of your mind lol?

I see this perspective quite often. And no, I'm not out of my mind. Wink
Why is it that you contend that $10.00 a Dogecoin is fantasy?

BTW: it won't be that Doge's are so _valuable_, but in 7 years, the dollar will be the currency that is next to worthless.
We'll all need to be Crypto Millionaires when a bottle of Coca Cola is $23.95 and a gallon of gas is $105.99.

The future will not be the same as the past.

(Still mining away @ 40 doges a day, they do add up)

I am not mining this but I think you don't want to be mining with a CPU.  Anybody mining with a good graphics card will be hundreds of times more successful.
