Getting Started Guide

  • 1. Create account.
    • Register here, or login if you already have account
    • Create a worker that will be used by the miner to login
  • 2. Download a miner.
  • 3. Configure your miner.

    Settings for Stratum (recommended):

    Password:Worker Password

    If you use a command-line miner, type:

    ./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://coin-base.org:3446 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password

    If you want, you can create additional workers with usernames and passwords of your choice Here

  • 4. Create a Fastcoin address to recieve payments.
    • Downloading the client & block chain: Download the Fastcoin client from here.

      Generate a new address and input it on your account page to receive payments.

  • 5. Advanced cgminer settings / FAQ
    • Scrypt readme
    • Don't set intensity too high, I=11 is standard and safest. Higher intensity takes more GPU RAM. Check for hardware errors in cgminer (HW). HW=0 is good, otherwise lower intensity :)
    • Set shaders according to the readme (or look at your graphic cards specifications). Cgminer uses this value at first run to calculate thread-concurrency. Easiest way to get this optimized is to use same settings as others have used here: here.
    • There's also an interesting project which gives you a GUI for cgminer. Windows only it seems.
    • Here's a great guide how to get up and running with Xubuntu.
