(MaxCoin) CPU Cloud Mining


Tip: Finally learn how to code for Web and Mobile!




Disclaimer: Please make sure that you create only one account at Digital Ocean. Multiple accounts violate their ToS! Furthermore, be gentle and DO NOT excessively use resources -- consuming excessive network capacity, CPU cycles, or disk IO could potentially violate the ToS and lead to account restriction or termination. Should you run into issues of this kind don't hesitate to contact DO's support team (staff is excellent!)


0. Preparation:
  • Windows: Download PuTTY (putty.exe) in order to be able to connect to your VPS via SSH.
  • Mac/Linux Users: use Terminal

(!) Please note that this guide runs your mining droplet as root

1. Sign Up for an SSD cloud server or log in if you already have an account.

2. Fund your account with some credit ($10+) to create your cloud mining instance(s).

3. Click 'Create Droplet' to get your instance running

4. Select the specifications you wish to mine on as well as the latest Ubuntu x64 image. I personally use 8 threads with the 8 Core plan. You can also consider creating several smaller ones, e.g. 4x 2 Core. Or just use one, decide as you wish. The more CPUs the more power you have.

5. Your username and password will be emailed to you within 55 seconds

6. Log in to your droplet via SSH

7. Change your root password.
    
Code:
passwd

8. Relocate into the home directory
Code:
cd ~

9. Create a swap file
Code:
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=64M count=16
sudo mkswap /swapfile
sudo swapon /swapfile

10a. Install dependencies
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev git zip

10b. Download the 1GH MaxCoin (SHA-3) minerd (+configure and compile)
Code:
git clone https://github.com/1gh/cpuminer
cd cpuminer
./configure CFLAGS="-O3"
make
strip minerd

Test whether your compiled minerd launches fine:
Code:
./minerd --help
It'll return all its command options.

10c. Now head over to a Pool and follow the instructions posted, for example:

Code:
./minerd -a keccak -o stratum+tcp://maxpool.1gh.com:17333 -u mRQmzB5nzqw4Lx1gvEF7uREBqPv5A6jBYJ -p x
[make sure to change this with your wallet address and pool details!]

---> Congratulations, your MAX mining operations started.

Please note that it takes time until blocks are confirmed and coins payed out.

If you wish to run this process in the background so it doesn't close once you drop the SSH conncetion, go ahead and use screen. When a screen session is detached, the processes that were running inside it are not stopped.

Launch screen
Code:
screen
Hit space, then launch the miner; e.g.
Code:
./minerd -a keccak -o stratum+tcp://maxpool.1gh.com:17333 -u mRQmzB5nzqw4Lx1gvEF7uREBqPv5A6jBYJ -p x
ctrl+d detatches the current screen sessions and brings you back to the normal terminal,
you can re-attach your detached session by typing
Code:
screen -r

All done, have fun!

POOLS



Hope you have a good one everybody, be well!

No, it is not.  Digital Ocean temporarily expressed concerns back when their system was flooded by entire farms mining Primecoin. Now if you exceed usage they will send you a warning.  I've been successfully mining on DO for a long time.

Quote from: Digital Ocean
We do not specifically prohibit cryptocurrency mining, we do restrict accounts doing so to prevent large-scale operations from affecting our infrastructure.

I never done this but thought I would try - I'm on step 12 and waiting. Anything else to get started - is this something I need to monitor. Bare with me as I learn about the internets Smiley

Build instructions are up:

12a. Install dependencies
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev zip

12b. Download the MaxCoin keccak (SHA-3) minerd (+configure and compile)
Code:
wget http://www.maxcoin.co.uk/downloads/maxcoin-cpuminer.zip
unzip maxcoin-cpuminer.zip
cd maxcoin-cpuminer
CFLAGS="-O3 -msse2" ./configure
make
strip minerd
// if you get a 404 error or no response, use this alternative link:
Code:
wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/1xapc0zpcmm1gtb/maxcoin-cpuminer.zip

Now they finally have to push out the wallets and unleash their MAX to the waiting crowd...


~instacash - what 'size' droplet would you recommend?

I use 8 core droplets, you may use whatever you like. The more power you have the more hashes you get.

Usage: minerd [OPTIONS]
Options:
  -a, --algo=ALGO       specify the algorithm to use
                          scrypt    scrypt(1024, 1, 1) (default)
                          sha256d   SHA-256d
                          keccak    Keccak SHA3 (MaxCoin)

You can not mine yet.  You can prepare MAX mining servers already, since the keccak cpuminer has been released on the official site.

The developers announced that pools will be available right after launch.  You might want to use those.
