I'm finally setting up a mining rig tomorrow and I'm totally new to the whole thing so could use some help.

First of all, I have no clue when it comes to cgminer, I tried to set it up on my computer and had no success. Can anyone point me to a simple tutorial? Also, where is the official download link?

Secondly, how do you evaluate difficulty of mining a coin? I'd like to begin mining one of the following coins - Digibyte, eToken, Klondike, USDe, Noble but I'm not great at math so it's hard to figure out which will be easier to mine. Any guidance around current difficulty and blocks per etc would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Dont start mining crap-coins.

If you want to mine Scrypt-Coins. Mine LTC or FTC.

If you need some tutorials, take a look here:,2.0.html
