Guide: How to mine GRIN

​🏁 1. Prerequisites

  • Nvidia GPU with at least 8GB RAM

  • AMD GPU with at least 8GB RAM

​🌜 2. Install and use a compatible wallet

​⛏ 3. Install mining software

AMD GPU: lolMiner

  1. Download latest miner binaries from

    ​https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4724735.0​

  2. Run the mining software with the following command line and modify the parameters within the <>

Grin currently has 3 mining algorithms. Experiment and choose the best for your GPU. grin-c29 has the lowest memory hardware requirements. Possible values for --coin are GRIN-C29M GRIN-C31 GRIN-C32

Windows
Linux
Windows
lolMiner.exe --coin GRIN-C29M --pool <poolAddr>:<portNumber> --user <Wallet or user name>.<rigID> --pass x
Linux
./lolMiner --coin GRIN-C29M --pool <poolAddr>:<portNumber> --user <Wallet or user name>.<rigID> --pass x

Nvidia & AMD GPU: GMiner

  1. Download latest miner binaries from

    ​https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5034735.0​

  2. Run the mining software with the following command line or edit the included "mine_grin[29|31|32]" script file.

Grin currently has 3 mining algorithms. Experiment and choose the best for your GPU. grin-c29 has the lowest memory hardware requirements.

Windows

Windows
miner.exe --algo <grin29|grin31|grin32> --server <poolAddr> --port <portNumber> --user <Wallet or user name>.<rigName>
Linux
./miner --algo <grin29|grin31|grin32> --server <poolAddr> --port <portNumber> --user <Wallet or user name>.<rigName>

If your Operating System quarantines the file, you will need to create a rule to exclude the files/directory.

How much can I expect to mine?

Depending on your chosen Grin algorithm, enter your hash rate at the appropriate calculators:

When will I get paid?

When your earnings reaches the payout limit or threshold, you must request payment to your wallet. Often times, you need to open your wallet and be online to receive the Grin transaction. If using an exchange wallet, payment is automatically sent to your address upon request.
