DGB (DigiByte) Mining Tutorial

DigiByte referred to as DGB, is a public, fast-developing and highly decentralized blockchain system, which supports multiple-algorithm mining.

Currently, F2Pool has launched the DGB mining pool of Sha256d algorithm. Miners can use the Sha256d (available for BTC miners), Skein, Qubit, Odocrypt (GPU card miner), Scrypt (available for LTC miners) algorithms ASIC miners to mine.

 

. Obtain The Wallet Address And Mining Software

DGB Official Website

【Official Web】: https://www.digibyte.co/

Obtain the Wallet

【Full Node Wallet】: https://www.digibyte.co/digibyte-wallet-downloads

Here is the official wallet download link. Besides, DGB Official has also recommended another third-party wallet, which can be obtained from the link above as well.

【Exchange Wallet】

Bittrex:https://bittrex.com/

Huobi Pro:https://www.huobi.com/zh-cn/

Here we will not list all the supported exchanges one by one due to its large number.

Note: The countries’ regulatory policies on exchanges are not uniform, and the related risks are borne by the miners.

 

. Mining Configuration

2.1 SHA256 Algorithm

Take Antminer S9 as the instance, input the miner IP after obtaining it, and go into the miner’s backstage, then set the parameters as below:

Pool URLstratum+tcp://dgb-sha256d.f2pool.com:11110

WorkerWallet address.worker name

PasswordWorker password (Can be any words)

Note: The worker name can be user-defined, which can be any numbers or letters; and it should be a dot “.” between the wallet address and the worker name.

As the format below:

After the confirmation of the wallet address and the pool address, click on the button “Save & Apply” on the lower right. Then the revenue can be checked after the miner machine starts to submit the data.

 

2.2 Scrypt Algorithm

Take Antminer L3 as an example, after obtaining the miner’s IP, input it in the managing PC’s browser, and go into the miner setting page and fill in the information as below:

URLdgb-scrypt.f2pool.com:11111

Workerwallet address.worker name

Passwordworker passwordCan be any words

After configuring, click on “Save & Apply”. The miner will start to mine after a while and the mining status can be checked in the “Status” page.

2.3 Skein Algorithm

For this algorithm, Baikal-X miner is also available to mine. The relevant steps are mostly the same as the contents of “2.3 Groestl”. The parameters should be set as below:

URLdgb-groestl.f2pool.com:11113

AlgoSkeincoin

Userwallet_address.worker_name(such as: DsUwCypjp9kpgzpz5dWhdewoXHYLNCHNqWQ.123)

Passx

Extra noncedon’t select

Priority: 0

After the configuration, choose “reload pools” and the new pool will be added successfully. It will start to mine DGB afterwards.

2.4 Qubit Algorithm

For this algorithm, Baikal-X miner is also available to mine. The relevant steps are mostly the same as the contents of “2.3 Groestl”. The parameters should be set as below:

URLdgb-groestl.f2pool.com:11114

AlgoQubit

Userwallet_address.worker_name(such as: DsUwCypjp9kpgzpz5dWhdewoXHYLNCHNqWQ.123)

Passx

Extra noncedon’t select

Priority: 0

After the configuration, choose “reload pools”, and the new pool is added successfully, and begin to mine DGB.

 

. Viewing Revenue

Method of viewing the revenue in the F2Pool website: http://www.f2pool.com/, input the wallet address in the searching bar on the top right of F2Pool’s site, choose the “DGB-SHA256D” algorithm and click on “GO”. Then the miner monitoring and the account revenue checking will be available.
