How To Mine Verge - XVG (Difficult Way):




1. Get Your Verge Wallet Address

Don't have one? Download the Verge wallet for Windows or Mac.

After you have downloaded the wallet, you need to get a receiving address. Go to File > Receiving Addresses in the Verge wallet program as shown in the image to the right. An address should look like this: XKG3MJou5jMU41n7Ldt6vyV6oRGqiynxUC
2. Download CCMiner for GPU users, or CPUMiner for CPU users

CCMiner only works for GPU Mining (graphics cards) and requires you to have NVIDIA CUDA installed on your machine. CPUMiner will use your CPU to mine for Verge. GPU mining is far more effective but also requires much more resources.

Click on the latest release (should be a .zip file or a 7z file). Once you have downloaded the release, unzip the file. In the directory there will be a set of .exe files. For CPUminer users, you will see cpuminer-gw64-avx2.exe, cpuminer-gw64-core2.exe, and cpuminer-gw64-corei7.exe. For CCminer users, you will see ccminer-x64.exe.
3. Open NotePad for Windows.

Below are two commands, one for ccminer users and one for cpuminer users. Copy and Paste the following command. You will need to replace NAME_OF_CPUMINER_EXE with the name of the exe in the folder you downloaded in step 2.

For example, cpuminer users will use cpuminer-gw64-avx2, cpuminer-gw64-core2, or cpuminer-gw64-corei7. Most users will use cpuminer-gw-core2, but if you have an i7 processor please use cpuminer-gw54-corei7.

Replace WALLET_ADDRESS with the wallet address you obtained in Step 1.

Make sure there are no line breaks in this command. This should be one line of text in NotePad.

ccminer-x64 -a x17 -o stratum+tcp://stratum.happypool.co:4600 -u WALLET_ADDRESS -p c=XVG
NAME_OF_CPUMINER_EXE -a x17 -o stratum+tcp://stratum.happypool.co:4600 -u WALLET_ADDRESS -p c=XVG
4. Save NotePad file as a MineVerge.BAT File in the ccminer or cpuminer folder.

It is important that the file is saved in the same location of the ccminer.exe or cpuminer.exe.

5. Navigate to the MineVerge.BAT File, and open it.

If everything went right, you should see a command prompt window showing your mining activity. For CPU miners, this process can take a few moments.

If the window appeared and disappeared instantly, your setup has failed. This could have happened for the following reasons:
  • Typo in the BAT file. Please double check your BAT file to make sure wallet address is correct and that there are no extra spaces.
  • Your system is older, you may need to download an older version of the miner.
  • Try a different exe name in the BAT file. So instead of cpuminer-gw64-avx2, try cpuminer-gw64-core2
  • Still having issues? Head on over to the discord channel and ask our community.
6. Ok Cool. What am I looking at?

You should be seeing a bunch of "yes!" items and a lot of scrolling text happening in the command prompt. You have now entered your computer power into trying to mine a block of Verge through the mining pool HappyPool. For every block a HappyPool user solves, the entire community shares that reward. This allows everyone to team up to earn coins without the need of super-computers.

7. How do I know how much I have earned?

Using your public wallet address you setup in Step 1, you can visit HappyPool's Income Tool. Just enter your wallet address, and you will see how much Verge - XVG you have earned! That amount will be deposited to your XVG wallet in a short period of time.
