Windows ETHO Mining Guide (Claymore)

A simple guide detailing how to mine ETHO on Windows using the Claymore miner.

Introduction

This guide will cover how to mine ETHO on a windows based system through the Claymore miner program. This guide will detail both the installation and setup process of the miner.

Installation

  1. You can download the latest version of Claymore miner here.

  2. Once downloaded, extract the folder to a suitable location on your computer. (Such as a mining folder or onto the desktop.)

Be sure to check back frequently to get the latest version of the miner, as updates often increase your hash rate, as the miner becomes better optimised.

Miner Setup

  1. Within the extracted folder, right click on the start.bat file and edit with notepad. (If a start.bat file is not present in the miner folder, simple create one by creating a new text document, and renaming it appropriately, including the file extension.)

  2. Within this batch file, you can set the various parameters which the miner uses, including:

    1. Wallet address.

    2. Worker Name.

    3. Worker Password.

    4. Pool URL / Port.

    5. Max Temperature.

  3. Below there is an example batch file, for more arguments / detail on setting up a batch file, please reference the bitcoin talk thread. There are also a number of useful youtube tutorials on the subject.

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool stratum+tcp://us.pool.ether1.eu:8001 -ewal 0xAc806C529a7FdBCb11bD3667912Dd620b277cEA9 -epsw x -allpools 1 -allcoins -1 -gser 2 -eworker rig1 -eworker cplus2 -tstop 68,68,68,68,68,68 -tstart 45,45,45,45,45,45 -y 1
pause

Remember to save the batch file before closing it down, or you will lose your configuration information.

Exceptions

Before running the batch file, it is best to check that the program has the correct permissions to run. To do this, click on the ethdcrminer64.exe file, go to properties, and ensure the tick box to "run program as administrator" is enabled.

Running the Miner

Once you have downloaded and configured the batch file you are now ready to mine! Double click on the batch file and the miner should start running!
