Getting started with Bitcoin mining

such beginner shibe thread wow how to get coin

 how to shibecoin v rich in minutes much instruct so simple any doge can do 

START HERE

UPDATE 1/21/14: I'm not updating this guide anymore. Most of the steps should still work though. See the wiki or check the sidebar for updated instructions.
Before you do anything else, you need to get a wallet. Until there's a secure online wallet, this means you need to download the dogecoin client.
Now open the client you just downloaded. You'll be given a default address automatically, and it should connect to peers and start downloading the dogechain (aka blockchain in formal speak). You'll know because there will be a progress bar at the bottom and at the lower right there should be a signal strength icon (TODO: add screenshots).
If you've waited 2 or 3 minutes and nothing is happening, copy this:
maxconnections=100 addnode=95.85.29.144 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=146.185.181.114 addnode=188.165.19.28 addnode=166.78.155.36 addnode=doge.scryptpools.com addnode=doge.netcodepool.org addnode=doge.pool.webxass.de addnode=doge.cryptopool.it addnode=pool.testserverino.de addnode=doge.luckyminers.com addnode=doge.cryptovalley.com addnode=miner.coinedup.comdoge addnode=doge.cryptoculture.net addnode=dogepool.pw addnode=doge.gentoomen.org addnode=doge.cryptominer.net addnode=67.205.20.10 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=78.46.57.132 
And paste it into a new text file called dogecoin.conf, which you then place into the dogecoin app directory.
Now restart your qt client and the blockchain should start downloading in about 1-2 minutes.
Once it finished downloading, you're ready to send and receive Dogecoins!

GETTING COINS

Decide how you want to get Dogecoin. Your options are:
I'll go into detail about each of these. I'm currently writing this out. I'll make edits as I add sections. Suggestions are welcome.

MINING

Mining is how new dogecoins are created. If you're new to crypto currencies, read this. To mine (also called "digging"), a computer with a decent GPU (graphics card) is recommended. You can also mine with your CPU, but it's not as efficient.

GPU MINING

These instructions cover only Windows for now. To mine, you'll need to figure out what GPU you have. It'll be either AMD/ATI or Nvidia. The setup for both is approximately the same.

Step One: Choose a pool

There's a list of pools on the wiki. For now it doesn't really matter which one you choose. You can easily switch later.
NOTE: You can mine in two ways. Solo mining is where you mine by yourself. When you find a block you get all the reward. Pool mining is when you team up with other miners to work on the same block together. This makes it more likely that you'll find a block, but you won't get all of it, you'll have to split it up with others according to your share of the work. Pool mining is recommended because it gives you frequent payouts, because you find more blocks. The larger the pool you join, the more frequent the payouts, but the smaller the reward you get.
Over a long period of time the difference between pool and solo mining goes away, but if you solo mine it might be months before you get any coins.

Step two: Set up pool account

The pool you chose should have a getting started page. Read it and follow the instructions. Instructions vary but the general idea is:
When you're done with this, you'll need to know:

Step three: Download mining software

For best performance you'll need the right mining software.
Unzip the download anywhere you want.

Step four: Set up miner

Create a text file in the same folder as your miner application. Inside, put the command you'll be running (remove brackets).
For AMD it's cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://: -u -p
For Nvidia it's cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://: -O :
Substitute the right stuff in for the placeholders. Then on the next line of the text file type pause. This will let you see any errors that you get. Then save the file with any name you want, as long as the file extension is .bat. For example mine_serverName.bat.

Step five: Launch your miner

Just open the .bat file and a command line window should pop up, letting you know that the miner is starting. Once it starts, it should print out your hash rate.
If you now go to the pool website, the dashboard should start showing your hashrate. At first it'll be lower than what it says in the miner, but that's because the dashboard is taking a 5 minute average. It'll catch up soon enough.
NOTE: A normal hashrate is between 50 Kh/s up to even 1 Mh/s depending on your GPU.

You're now mining Dogecoins

That's it, nothing more to it.

CPU MINING

CPU mining isn't really recommended, because you'll be spending a lot on more on power than you'd make from mining Dogecoin. You could better spend that money on buying Dogecoin by trading. But if you have free electricity and want to try it out, check out this informative forum post.

Trading

Trading has been difficult so far, but Dogecoin just got added to a few new exchanges. If you don't have a giant mining rig, this is probably the best way to get 100k or more dogecoins at the moment. I'll write up a more complete guide, but for now check out these sites:

Faucets

Faucets are sites that give out free coins. Usually a site will give out somewhere between 1 and 100 Dogecoin. Every site has its own time limits, but usually you can only receive coins once every few hours, or in some cases, days. It's a great way to get started. All you do is copy your address from the receive section of your wallet and enter it on some faucet sites. Check out /dogecoinfaucets for more. If you go to each site on there you might end up with a couple hundred Dogecoin!

Begging

This method is pretty straightforward. Post your receiving address, and ask for some coins. Such poor shibe. The only catch is, don't do it here! Please go to /dogecoinbeg.

Tips

At the moment there are two tip bots:
Other redditors can give you Dogecoin by summoning the tip bot, something like this:
+dogetipbot 5 doge
This might happen if you make a good post, or someone just wants to give out some coins. Once you receive a tip you have to accept it in a few days or else it'll get returned. Do this by following the instructions on the message you receive in your inbox. You reply to the bot with "+accept". Commands go in the message body. Once you do that, the bot will create a tipping address for you, and you can use the links in the message you receive to see your info, withdraw coins to your dogecoin-qt wallet, see your history, and a bunch of other stuff.
As a bonus, so_doge_tip has a feature where you can get some Dogecoins to start with in exchange for how much karma you have. To do this, send the message "+redeem DOGE" to so_doge_tip. You'll need to create a tipping account if you don't have one.
If you want to create a tipping account without ever being tipped first, message either of the bots with "+register" and an address will be created for you.

Dogecoin on Linux - The Complete Beginner's Guide

I'm writing this because I couldn't find a single condensed guide on compiling the wallet and running mining software on linux, specficially Ubuntu/Linux Mint. I combed Bitcoin and Litecoin forums for similar problems I was running into and eventually got everything nailed down, so here it is in one place, for new Shibes.
If you want to make a Dogecoin directory in your downloads folder to keep things organized, you will need to modify these commands to refelct the change. So instead of going to ~/Downloads/ you will need to go to ~/Downloads/Dogecoin and be sure to put the zipped files there when you download them, but the commands will be the same otherwise.
cwayne18 put in the work to make a PPA for the QT client here.
Ubunutu/Mint/Debian users should be able to install the client with the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cwayne18/doge sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dogecoin-qt 
To update using this method, run
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade dogecoin-qt 
Compiling the Wallet Manually
I suggest using the PPA above, but if you want to compile manually, here you go.
1)Download the newest source from here. If you want to check out the Github page, click here
2)Unzip the package with the native client OR, navigate to your downloads and unzip
cd ~/Downloads unzip dogecoin-master.zip 
3)Now it's time to compile. You will need to install the dependencies, just copy and paste the following code. It will be a fairly large download and could take some time. It is always important to update before installing any new software, so we'll do that first and then install the dependencies.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install libssl-dev libdb-dev libdb++-dev libqrencode-dev qt4-qmake libqtgui4 libqt4-dev sudo apt-get install libminiupnpc-dev libminiupnpc8 libboost-all-dev build-essential git libboost1.53-all-dev 
4)Once that is done, go to the doge-coin master directory and compile:
cd ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste sed -i 's/-mgw46-mt-sd-1_53//g' dogecoin-qt.pro qmake USE_UPNP=- USE_QRCODE=0 USE_IPV6=0 make -j3 
After running the qmake command you will likely see some text similar to
Project MESSAGE: Building without UPNP support Project MESSAGE: Building with UPNP supportRemoved plural forms as the target language has less forms. If this sounds wrong, possibly the target language is not set or recognized. 
It's perfectly normal, so don't worry about that.
Your Dogewallet is ready to go! The executable is in ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste and called dogecoin-qt. Your wallet information is in ~/.dogecoin. You can run the wallet at any time by opening terminal and typing
cd ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste ./dogecoin-qt 
Future upgrades to dogewallet are easy. Back up your wallet.dat, and simply follow the same directions above, but you'll be unzipping and building the newer version. You will likely need to rename the old dogecoin-master directory in ~/Downloads before unzipping the newest version and building. Also, it is likely that you will not need to install the dependencies again.
Alternate Method For Installing Dogecoin Wallet from Nicebreakfast
After installing the dependencies listed in step 3, open terminal, then navigate to where you want Dogecoin Wallet stored and run:
git clone https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin ./autogen.sh ./configure make 
then when the wallet is updated just run
git pull 
from the dogecoin directory.
GPU Mining
GPU mining requires CGminer. My suggestion is to get the executable already built. The creator of cgminer has removed the built file from his website, but I've uploaded it here
sudo apt-get install pkg-config opencl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev autoconf libtool automake m4 ncurses-dev cd ~/Downloads tar -xvf cgminer-3.7.2-x86_64-built.tar.bz2 
Don't use anything newer than 3.7.2. The newer versions of CGMiner don't support GPU mining.
That's it! You have cgminer ready to go! You will run cgminer with the following syntax
cd ~/Downloads/cgminer-3.7.2-x86_64-built/ ./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://SERVERNAME:PORT -u WORKER.ID -p PASS 
A good guide for fine tuning cgminer can be found here; follow the litecoin example.
EDIT
I had trouble getting cgminer running with a single line command, but running it via an executable .sh file works. This is covered in the cgminer setup guide I posted above but I'll put it here too. In the same directory that has the cgminer executable, you need to make a file called cgminer.sh and make it executable. It should contain the follwing:
export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1 export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100 export DISPLAY=:0 find *.bin -delete sleep 5 ./cgminer 
Then you can call cgminer in terminal by doing ./cgminer.sh You will need a cgminer.conf file containing all your options. All of this is covered in the guide that is linked above.
A quick note about AMD drivers: They used to be a huge PITA to install and get working, but the newest Catalyst drivers are great. There's a GUI installer, everything works out of the box, and there is a lot of documentation. You can download them here: AMD Catalyst 14.6 Beta Linux
CPU Mining
For CPU mining I use minerd because it doesn't require any work to get running, simply download it and get to work. Download the built file for your machine 32-bit or 64-bit, and then unzip it and you're ready to go!
cd ~/Downloads tar -xvf pooler-cpuminer-2.3.2-linux-x86.tar.gz 
The executable is called minerd and it will be in ~/Downloads but you can move it to wherever you like. To run it, pull up terminal and do
cd ~/Downloads minerd --url=stratum+tcp://SERVER:PORT --userpass=USERNAME.WORKERNAME:WORKERPASSWORD 
You're done! Happy mining!
Common Issues
I ran into this and I've seen others with this problem as well. Everything installs fine but there is a shared library file that isn't where it should be. In fact, it isn't there at all.
 libudev.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 
In terminal, do
sudo updatedb locate libudev.so.0.13.0 
And it will probably return a path /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu. Inside that directory there's a library file called libudev.so.0.13.0. You'll need to make a symlink (aka shortcut) that links libudev.so.1 to libudev.so.0.13.0 So, assuming you're working with libudev.so.0.13.0 do this
cd /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu sudo ln -s libudev.so.0.13.0 libudev.so.1 
Now if you do
ln -l 
You should see
libudev.so.1 -> ./libudev.so.0.13.0 
Meaning you've made the symlink. Also, the text for libudev.so.1 will be blue.

[P2pool] How to make your own personal p2pool Node!

Tired of getting no block rewards and sending many dead shares? Need a p2pool node close to your miner? MAKE YOUR OWN! :D
And, Yep, P2pools give 0.5% Rewards to block finders!
Here's some info about p2ools: http://whatisp2pool.com/
The stronger the P2Pool network becomes the more resistant the digibyte network is to 51% attacks!
Oh and, P2pools are DDOS proof! Now that's News! So if your node gets DDOS'd .. you dont lose your shares as the shares have been saved in the p2pool, its called the sharechain. So you get paid anyhow! Thanks to the p2pool network. and you ccan set your workers to another pool using the "--failover only" command in cgminer (if im not wrong) and get it back to work on the p2pool network!
TL;DR; P2POOL = 1 Big fat network Decentrazlized pool!
STEPS TO MAKE A P2POOL:
Install Ubuntu server or Desktop if you want http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ or u can use a VPS (VirtualPrivateServer -- Link Below with coupon code)
So Let's start off in the command line (Open Terminal.. and all you have to do is Cut, Copy Paste! ;) )
Start by updating and upgrading Ubuntu, you know you want the best ;)
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install python-software-properties sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin sudo apt-get update 
Time for the DigiByteProject dependencies!
sudo apt-get install build-essential libboost-all-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libdb5.1-dev libdb5.1++-dev git qt-sdk libminiupnpc-dev sudo apt-get install qrencode libqrencode-dev 
And, Now to compile DigiByte on your system!
git clone git://github.com/digibyte/DigiByteProject.git digibyte #renaming makes it easier ;) cd ~/digibyte/src mkdir obj make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=- sudo cp digibyted /usbin cd ~ 
After it has compiled try running 'digibyted'
./digibyte/src/digibyted 
If you get an error saying you need to make the digibyte.conf file, good! :) If it doesnt give you that error, make sure you followed the compiling steps appropriately.
So, Lets create the conf file here...
cd .digibyte #edited from 'digibyted' .. fixed!! nano digibyte.conf 
Paste the following, CHANGING THE USERNAME AND PASS!! make sure to take note of both, you'll need these later!
rpcuser=CHANGEusername rpcpassword=ChangePassword daemon=1 server=1 rpcport=14022 port=12024 gen=1 rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 addnode=74.208.230.160 addnode=31.220.25.91 addnode=184.155.218.183 addnode=24.119.23.61 addnode=70.196.193.231 addnode=198.98.118.241 addnode=142.4.204.115 addnode=23.90.191.58 addnode=216.250.125.121 addnode=115.28.31.25 addnode=83.172.105.46 
Press 'CTRL' + ' X', and then 'Y' to save when prompted
cd ~ ./digibyte/src/digibyted ./digibyte/src/digibyted getinfo 
Make sure you check the latest block in the block chain or on your local DigiByte Wallets. This is to see how far your p2pool node has gotten! This is gonna take quite a while so lets CONTINUE!
Let's get the p2pool software and frontend in! Install the p2pool dependencies!
sudo apt-get install python-zope.interface python-twisted python-twisted-web git clone https://github.com/Rav3nPL/p2pool-rav p2pool #renaming it! cd ~/p2pool/digibyte_subsidy #Thanks to Chaeplin sudo python setup.py install 
Time to edit and customise the html code to personalise your p2pool's frontend. Feel free to change the p2pool name and if you're an advanced user, feel free to add your own frontend from git hub after removing the web-static folder. (OPTIONAL: by using rm -f -r web-static #in that directory. And then you can choose whichever frontend you want! by cloning it in the web-static folder)
Editing the current frontend html!
cd .. cd web-static nano index.html 
After personalising the page, i.e. changing the p2pool name and adding some info! Lets go back and check how far the block downloading has gotten! You can check this by typing this in the command line after going back to the root directory:
cd ~ ./digibyte/src/digibyted getinfo 
This is gonna take a while so might as well check for updates again :P
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade 
After making sure that all the blocks have been synced locally! We're ready to run the p2pool node! Simply enter the string below in the command line, entering your USERNAME and PASS that you saved earlier!
screen -d -m -S myp2pool ~/p2pool/run_p2pool.py --give-author 0 --net digibyte NEWUSER NEWPASS --outgoing-conns 4 
If you want to charge a fee for your node add this to your string, adding your fee address!:
--fee 1.0 --address NEWDGBADDRESS 
To see if the node is up and running enter this in the command line:
screen -x myp2pool 
'CTRL' + 'A' + 'D' to close the terminal if you press 'CTRL' + 'C', it will terminate the p2pool program and you'll have to restart the pool by using the string above!
Once, Everything is setup as planned! Check your p2pool node's ip Address by entering this into the command line:
ifconfig 
inet addr: 192.168.1.1 #You'll see a line like this.
So, Your cgminer string should look something like this:
cgminer --scrypt -o 192.168.1.1:9022 -u DGBADDRESS -p x
And your p2pool WEB ADDRESS should look like this:
192.168.1.1:9022
example: http://192.168.1.1:9022/
You can monitor your p2pool using that web address! Enjoy, your personal p2pool node!! :D
If for whatever reason the server shuts off and you need to restart the p2pool node, you should run digibyted again and after it has synced successfully, just type in your p2pool string:
./digibyte/src/digibyted
screen -d -m -S myp2pool ~/p2pool/run_p2pool.py --give-author 0 --net digibyte NEWUSER NEWPASS --outgoing-conns 4 --fee 1.0 --address NEWADDRESS
PRESS CTRL + A + D to Detach from screen
UPDATE Follow Guide below if you used this guide before DigibByte v2.0 was released (28th Feb 2014)
You must check whether you're on the right ShareChain. Make Sure the block Value says 7960!

Road to Recovery [Part 2]

If you missed Part 1 – check here! The story continues! (tl;dr at the bottom)
Where were we… ah, my alarm.
No sooner did I jump into bed than the alarm went off! Buzzing away under my pillow… the day was fast turning into one of the worst days of recent memory.
I grabbed my phone, switched the alarm off and just lay there mumbling.
‘A1 something something something £9 something something’
‘No, that’s not right’
‘A1 #?’
‘What was it – I know this, come on … visualise!’
I’ve never done that before… I was speaking to myself out loud, that was the gravity of the situation and my feelings at the time. I hate you Google Keep!!...
My wife on the other hand had already dozed off (btw, I got plenty of confused.com looks during the panic station ‘moment’, she was half asleep though so it didn’t really faze her).
Eventually I began to calm down. I started thinking sensibly about the situation. The first thing I was doing wrong was not writing down any of my guesses. I probably recited well over 30 phrases as I was lying there. I got up, opened my laptop and started writing them down. At the same time I noticed my mining rig was still running... RDP -> Hit Q on CGMiner – why the hell was I mining coins to address that I no longer had access to!!!!
Once the fans slowed I opened the QT client and went to the send tab. Bear in mind that from the moment I lost my password to this moment I hadn’t even attempted a single passphrase even though it would have been a little fresher in my mind!
Send tab -> check the addresses I have saved -> ah DogeTipBot -> that will do. 100 coins, hit send… ‘Please Enter Passphrase’. Ok here goes:
First attempt
‘That’s the one for sure...’ Nope
-Tries again- No
-and again- Error
-A further 15 times- Access Denied.
Sigh
F*** you Google Keep. (Yeah your gonna see a lot of this – I despise that app now). I must have tried and failed countless times before I decided to investigate other options.
What do you do when you’re stuck? Google It. And that’s what I did. There were a fair few posts regarding lost pastphrases, none of them really helpful. Most replies were along the lines of ‘sorry for you loss’, ‘how much did you lose?’ and ‘nothing you can do…’. Well, screw that, I wasn’t giving up – I like a good challenge!
Enter Recoinvery.com. A nice little tool albeit very slow. I came across it whilst searching for passphrase recovery options available to me specifically for coin wallets. You basically point the tool to your wallet.dat file, set a bunch of options and hit the ok button. It runs a few instances in the background attempting to recover your lost passphrase.
Let me stop there for a sec and explain something quickly about passwords and recovery of one (feel free to correct me if wrong!):
  1. If you’re trying to recover a password less than 10 characters that you can’t remember at all then there’s a decent chance for you to recover it – it may take a while though, could be months.
  2. If you know bits and pieces of it then you can drastically reduce the time it takes for recovery using things like dictionaries or masks
  3. If your password is 10 characters or over and you don’t know parts of it then you’re pretty much screwed
There’s more to it than just that but those are some of the key points most recovery websites will throw at you. Another vital point I learned was the difference between combinations and permutations – it goes a little like this:
If I have a password ‘Abcd123’ then there’s no reason for me to check combinations – I.e. aaaaaaa, aaaaaab, aaaaaac, etc. We’re not interested in combinations here, were interested in permutations. With permutations you would provide a character set and a length you are after – this would then output unique permutations of the character set vs. the length – using the password example above, if I provided Aabcde12345 as the set and 7 as the length I would see things like Aabcde1, Aabcde2, Aabcde3, etc. (Remember ‘A’ and ‘a’ are not the same)
Why is this key for me? I was 100% sure that I hadn’t used the same character twice in my passphrase.
So, back to Recoinvery. As I said, great little tool but I quickly realised it was far too slow for what I was trying to achieve. There had to be other services out there.
There were tools like Hashcat and John The Ripper, both great for expert hackers / crackers but for me, a novice when it comes to this type of activity, I found those tools a little out of my league. At this point I came across www.walletrecoveryservices.com – a service provided by a guy called Dave Bitcoin. You’re thinking what I’m thinking right? Scam Scam Scam. Best course of action? Google It.
Dave was apparently the real deal. His method was a custom made bit of code + access to numerous workstations / servers and the use of only a small section of your encrypted wallet. This is key – the portion he was asking for was essentially useless, he wouldn’t have been able to steal my coins had he recovered it. I read up on it and him – everything seemed above board. I proceeded to contact him.
In the background, I had Recoinvery chugging away at measly 100 passwords a second – it had been running for hours I think (btw this is still Friday the 28th March) and nothing. My guess would be somewhere in the region of 500,000 combinations had been checked of a 12 character password (+ it seemed a little … buggy). Wait you say? I’ve not said a word about what parameters I’ve used or what the hell it was that I was trying to look for! Fear not, details below:
  1. I was fairly sure my password was not less than 11 characters and certainly no more than 13
  2. I knew it had unique characters, symbols and numbers
  3. I knew the start and the end of the password – 99% confidence
  4. I was about 60% sure about the characters contained within the password
It was the bit in the middle that had be stumped. The good news was I was able to provide Recoinvery with a mask – set a prefix, suffix and let it chug away at the middle. The bad news, as highlighted earlier, I was struggling with permutations and speed. It was frustrating to say the least.
Approaching the half day mark with nothing to report I decided to check back on Reddit to see if any more comments had been made that may guide me (I made the most in the morning before 9). A couple of useful comments however nothing to go off. I guess it was time for a little patience… woosaaaa.
I should probably get some breakfast… (12.00pm)
Am I doomed? It's looking increasingly likely I know .... Hitting the Wall [Part 3]
tl;dr
F****** Google Keep
Calm down – think sensibly
Research password recovery, find Recoinvery
Give Recoinvery some character sets to work with
Sit and wait.

The Absolute Crypto-Coine Beginenrs Guide to MyriadCoin-Mining

Hello, I'm a new member of the Myriadcoin-Community and I made a mining guide for crypto-currency newbies over on my blog. I thought it would fit here as well, hoping that some newbie would discover it upon his quest for mining crypto-coins. (I hope it is ok, that I just copied it over)

The Absolute Crypto-Coin Beginners Guide to MyriadCoin-Mining

Introduction

I researched the technology behind Bitcoin, especially the blockchain, for the past week because it could have been helpful with my current research on electronic voting that I am doing for my project thesis. During that I was amazed by the simple and yet powerful ideas behind crypto-currency. I was tempted to invest some of my spare money (which is not much as an undergraduate) into crypto-currencies, but was appalled by the weak points of Bitcoin, that become apparent if one researches it. (Malleability, 51% Attacks, Selfish Mining, etc. If there is interest I can maybe try to scramble together an article going in detail about attacks on crypto-currencies)
Then I discovered Myriadcoin, which solved most of the problems I had with Bitcoin. Although I myself am quite new to the Myriadcoin-Community I present to you, the absolute crypto-coin beginners guide to Myriadcoin-Mining. The following guide is written for Windows, the process may be similar on Linux/Mac OS but is not 100% the same

Setting up your Wallet

Your Myriadcoin-wallet is very much like your everyday wallet. It holds your currency, and if you lose it your money is gone.
  1. Go to the Myriadcoin homepage
  2. Download The wallet for your OS. (Currently there are Windows and Mac OS Wallets)
  3. Unzip the downloaded
  4. Start the myriadcoin-qt.exe
After the installation is done you should see your wallet stating that your current funds are 0 MYR. At the beginning the wallet has to download all the information from the blockchain, which can take a while. You can see the progress at the bottom of the wallet. Upon pressing the receive-button at the top you will see your automatically generated address. This address can be used to receive Payment. You can generate as many adresses as you want. Under Settings you can Encrypt your wallet, which you probably should do if you plan to use it seriously. Keep in mind, that if you lose your password you have no means to get to your money. Under File you can create a backup and save it somewhere.

Getting to Mine

Mining is the process which verifies currency transactions between accounts. It is simultaneously the process which generates new coins up to a limit. (20 billion is the limit for MYR). To mine a block means to solve a cryptographic puzzle in form of a hash. Myriadcoin uses 5 of those hash-algorithms. If you are a complete newbie to mining and crypto-currencies chances are you do not have specialized Hardware. Because of that it probably is best if you mine using the skein, groestl or qubit algorithms. Do not be scared of the names, I will guide you trough. If you made your mind up which of those you want to use (just pick one, if you do not want to research them) you can go to this post. The following step by step guide is using the skein algorithm with the Modified cgminer and the cryptorus mining pool. The steps can differ slightly if you use a different algorithm or pool, but should be similar.
  1. Go to the above linked post and scroll down to the Standalone Miner Section
  2. Pick a miner. (I use the modified cgminer
  3. Got to the post again and scroll to the Pools Section
  4. Pick one of the mining Pools fitting your chosen algorithm. (I pick http://myrsk.cryptorus.com/ for this one)
  5. Go to the homepage and register if necessary (Lets say my name is Testhans)
  6. Once you registered you should look for the My Workers Option
  7. There create a new worker. (Lets say I make a worker with the name Myry and the password 1234)
  8. Now unzip the Miner you downloaded
  9. Go to the folder of the miner and create a new textfile that you name run.bat
  10. Go to your pool-website and look for the stratum address. (Can be usually found on the startpage, in this my case stratum+tcp://myrsk.cryptorus.com:3333)
The run.bat should look as follows:
name_of_miner.exe -o stratum-address -u YouName.Workername -p Workerpassword (For some algorithms you have to set the algorithm as an option too)
This is how my config looks with the examples above:
cgminer.exe --skein -o stratum+tcp://myrsk.cryptorus.com:3333 -u Testhans.Myry -p 1234
Save the run.bat and you should be able to start the miner through double clicking. A console-window should open displaying the progress. Every time you find a share a message saying something along the lines of "Accepted 214sabc5fe 4/2" should be displayed.
You can enter your Myriadcoin-address inside the Account-Options of your pool, so you can receive your share of the coins you mined. Typically you have to arrange the transaction yourself. Usually the miner can take a lot of options to optimize the amount it can mine, but as a newbie you are likely to break more than you get out of it. The standard-configuration of miner-tools is in most cases pretty good allready.

Further Resources

You can find further resources on the bitcointalk-forums and the awesome subreddit. Also there is another mining-guide, which goes into more detail on all of the algorithms and can be quite helpfull if you are just new to Myriadcoin and not to the crypto-currencies as such.
If you have any suggestions or questions feel free to leave a comment, and if you found my guide useful and want to share some of your hard-mined coins, you can do that also. My Myriadcoin address is MKF8EPYksAV4Bn7M8HLEMyvEPtq3EWeGVW
