MicroBitcoin GPU Mining Guide for Nvidia

This is a simple guide on setting up a GPU miner on your desktop or laptop that runs a Nvidia or AMD graphics card.

Step 1: Go to the link below and download the ccminer_52.exe file

https://github.com/MicroBitcoinOrg/CudaMiner/releases
*make sure that you are on the latest version of the miner*

(you may need to exclude the file from the virus scanner)

Step 2: Create a wallet for obtaining MicroBitcoin

https://microbitcoinorg.github.io/wallet/#/
*make sure it is a mainnet wallet*
*make sure to keep the private key SAFE*

Step 3: Create mbc.bat file

  • Open notepad program
  • Add the below text and replace “YOUR WALLET ADDRESS HERE” with the address from the created wallet
  • This part of the text “stratum+tcp://mbc-asia.skypool.co:8001”will depend on which pool and port is used.

Ex.
ccminer_52.exe -a rfv2 -o stratum+tcp://mbc-asia.skypool.co:8001 -u YOUR WALLET ADDRESS HERE -p c=MBC

*make sure there is a space after the wallet address*

  • In the menu, go to File > Save As
  • Select “All Files “ under Save as type:
  • Name the file as mbc.bat and then select Save

*Pools with higher hashrates can be harder to get rewards. Try switching to a pool with a lesser hashrate*

For more pools, check the following list:
SkyPool (https://mbc.skypool.co/)
stratum+tcp://mbc-asia.skypool.co:8002

ZergPool (http://zergpool.com/)
stratum+tcp://rfv2.mine.zergpool.com:7444

Z Pool (https://zpool.ca/)
stratum+tcp://rfv2.jp.mine.zpool.ca:7443

MoricPool (http://mbc.moricpool.com/home/)
stratum+tcp://mbc.moricpool.com:4006

Sonox (https://pool.sonox.io/)
stratum+tcp://mine.pool.sonox.io:7444

TheTechnicalsPool (https://thetechnicalspool.com/)
stratum+tcp://mine.thetechnicalspool.com:7444

Step 5: Start Mining!

  • Open that bat file and mining should begin automatically
    *both the unzipped ccminer.exe and mbc.bat files should be in the same folder*
    *closing the file will stop mining*

Finished!

NOTES:

  • Coins obtained from mining can only be transferred after 100 blocks later.
  • Ex. if you mine 1 block. You can transfer those coins only after block 101.
    *if it takes longer than 100 blocks. Be patient. It will eventually show up once the pools release the coins*
  • Check your wallet amount on the MBC block explorer
