SRBMiner Mining VerusCoin Crypto

Hello,

Decided to share a different type of script this time for those that wish to start or already mine crypto currency professionally or as hobbies.

This is based on:
Crypto Coin = VerusCoin
Crypto Wallet = VerusWallet
Crypto Miner = SRBMiner
Crypto Pool = VerusFarm
Algorithm = verushash
HW Miner = CPU

1st thing you will need is a crypto wallet and while there are hundreds our there and at some point I may even write a post listing a few for this exercise as we are looking at VerusCoin I will be suggesting VerusWallet

When you have downloaded and installed your Crypto Wallet, added your chosen Crypto Coin in this case VerusCoin you will need to get your public key for this exercise and the easiest way to do this is by clicking on receive coin and it presents a QR and a long Crypto key something that looks like this “RJAfjFFKCPEtp7DzYFjSoNx7bHhav2cjy2”

Next step download your miner software in this case I am using SRBMiner instructions on the installation are shown on a nice little video on the miners own site.

Now you will also need a mining Pool and there are loads of information online explaining what a mining pool is, how it works and why you need it. Saying that the VerusWallet has a capability to mine VerusCoin solo without mining pool but that is a conversations for another day.

Now we will be using one of many available pools out there the VerusFarm is a small number of miners so the reward is greater but also means the identification of a block can be slower, also another conversation for another day.

Pool=stratum+tcp://verus.farm
Port=9999

So you have downloaded SRBMiner for Linux or Windows, you extracted using tar or zip and it’s all ready for the shell script or bat script to be configured. Store it in the same folder as the SRBMiner-MULTI executable.

Linux Example:

#!/bin/bash

Thread=32
PaidCoin=VRCS
Wallet=RJAfjFFKCPEtp7DzYFjSoNx7bHhav2cjy2
RIGNAME=Z932GBX570
Alg=verushash
Pool=stratum+tcp://verus.farm
Port=9999
DIR="$( cd "$( dirname "${BASH_SOURCE[0]}" )" && pwd )"
cd $DIR
LogFile=Logs/VerusFarm-`date +%Y-%m-%d-%H_%M_%S`.log

sudo ./SRBMiner-MULTI --disable-gpu --algorithm "${Alg}" --pool "${Pool}":"${Port}" --wallet "${Wallet}"."${RIGNAME}" c="${PaidCoin}" --cpu-threads "${Thread}" --log-file "${LogFile}"

Windows Example:

setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_MAX_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_MAX_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

@echo off
cd %~dp0
cls

SRBMiner-MULTI.exe --disable-gpu --algorithm verushash --pool stratum+tcp://verus.farm:9999 --wallet RJAfjFFKCPEtp7DzYFjSoNx7bHhav2cjy2.RIGNAME c=VRCS --cpu-threads 32
pause

Once you start mining you are able to monitor your mining position using your public key on the pool site, this my case this is the URL with my public key “VerusFarm”

If you like the examples and have more questions or want to ask about different miners, pools, crypto just join us on the Discord Server “Crypto Mining Friends”

Next time I’ll do a GPU mining example using different pool, different miner and different crypto coin.
