ETN (Electroneum) Mining Tutorial

Currently, ETN can be mined by video card (N-card and A-card) and some ASIC miners (white card N/N+, A8/A8+, X3 and other ASIC miners supporting Cryptonight algorithm). Both Windows and Linux systems can be mined.

However, now the hashrate of the ASIC miners exceeds the video card hashrate by a hundred times, even a thousand times, and the profit of the video card mining is not very good. It is recommended that the ASIC miners be used for mining before the ETN algorithm is adjusted.

【ASIC miner】:

Pool URL:stratum+tcp://etn.f2pool.com:13333

Worker(user):wallet address.worker name

Please Note : If it is required by some exchange platforms to fill in the payment ID when depositing, Otherwise it will influence your payout. Please add the payment ID in the “wallet address” area of mining parameters, the format is : wallet address. payment ID.worker name.

  • The method of monitoring miner and checking revenue:

Firstly, opening the F2pool official website by:https://www.f2pool.com; click the search button at the top right corner. Secondly, entering the wallet address setting in the mining software, clicking “Go”; then ,you can check the status of miner and the account revenue.

  • Block explorer:

  • II: The mining setting method of GPU miner

Under Cryptonight algorithm, cpu’s hashrate is too low, and it is not recommended to use cpu for mining. If you are interested in trying, you can obtain CPU mining software through the links in the “simple tutorial” for mining. This is not described in detail here.

  • The mining setting method of video card miner:

  • Using Xmrig Mining Software:

Download A card (or N card) mining software; unzip the mining software and find the “start.bat” file as shown below:

image.png

Right-click on “start.bat”, select “Edit”, open the file, and set the mining parameters as follows:

N card:

xmrig-nvidia.exe --donate-level 2 -o etn.f2pool.com:13333 -u wallet address.worker name -p x -k

A card:

xmrig-amd.exe --donate-level 2 -o etn.f2pool.com:13333 -u wallet address.worker name -p x -k

Please Note : If it is required by some exchange platforms to fill in the payment ID when depositing, Otherwise it will influence your payout. Please add the payment ID in the “wallet address” area of mining parameters, the format is : wallet address. payment ID.worker name.

Among them, the meaning of each parameter is as follows:

  • xmrig-amd.exe(or xmrig-nvidia) calling the program named “xmrig.amd.exe” (or xmrig-nvidia) in the same file.
  • -o This is about setting the mining address and port. For F2Pool version program, the default mining pool is: etn.f2pool.com:13333
  • -u Wallet address and worker name. The wallet address and the worker name must be separated by an English period.

Verify that the mining pool address and port are correct. After modifying and filling in the correct wallet address and worker name, save and exit the “start” file. The parameters are set (as shown below). Run the “start” file directly to start mining.

  • Using claymore Mining Software:

For A card miner, download claymore version of AMD GPU Miner from the relevant link; unzip the file and find the “start” file, as shown below:

image.png

Right-click the “start” file and select “Edit”. In the open text file, add the following command line:

NsGpuCNMiner.exe -xpool etn.f2pool.com:13333 -xwal wallet address.worker name -xpsw x

Please Note : If it is required by some exchange platforms to fill in the payment ID when depositing, Otherwise it will influence your payout. Please add the payment ID in the “wallet address” area of mining parameters, the format is : wallet address. payment ID.worker name.

After the parameters are set, save and exit the “start” file; then double-click “start” to start mining.

  • Using ccminer Mining Software:

For N card miner, after downloading ccminer from the relevant link; unzip the file and find the “start” file, as shown below:

image.png

Right-click the “start” file and select “Edit”. In the open text file, add the following command line.

ccminer-x64.exe -a cryptonight -o stratum+tcp://etn.f2pool.com:13333 -u wallet address.worker name -p x

Please Note : If it is required by some exchange platforms to fill in the payment ID when depositing, Otherwise it will influence your payout. Please add the payment ID in the “wallet address” area of mining parameters, the format is : wallet address. payment ID.worker name.

  • III, The mining setting method for ASIC miner:

ETN and Monero have the same algorithm, which is cryptonight. So, Monero mining miners such as white card N/N+, A8/A8+ and X3 can also mine ETN. The setting of the miners is much the same. Take X3 as an example. The setting of the miner is mainly divided into the following two steps:

  • Check IP

Download the IP checking software:https://mega.nz/#F!McgRFCDC!8h0mFdcuJ_pAIMRsqvE-fQ。

Unzip the downloaded IP checking software and double-click “IPReporter” in the folder.

Click “Start”, then press and hold the “IP Reporter” button of the miner, release it after pressing for one second.

At this point, the software will automatically pop up the IP address of the miner, copy the IP address to the browser.

Open the browser, paste the IP of the miner found above into the address bar of the browser, and press “Enter”. In the authentication that pops up, enter the user name and password as “root” and click “OK”. This time we entered the background of managing the miner.

  • *The setting method of the miner background *

Please set the mining pool and worker in “Miner Configuration/General Settings”.

URL:stratum+tcp://etn.f2pool.com:13333

Worker:wallet address.worker name

The worker name is customizable; it can be a number or letter; one worker name can name one miner, for example:

etnk6VC2Hn6DnFM2HB3VnyZh9mnwKwbdZgZjrnvoWJE6GJDcLGyadAei73kWehbrHTTNk8V9QNYb6H7UcMiyA8SW8oJF971iMn.01

Password:worker’s password (setting by yourself).

Please Note : If it is required by some exchange platforms to fill in the payment ID when depositing, Otherwise it will influence your payout. Please add the payment ID in the “wallet address” area of mining parameters, the format is : wallet address. payment ID.worker name.

After the mining pool and worker are set up, click on “Save&Apply” in the lower right corner.

  • IV, The method of monitoring miner and checking revenue

Firstly, opening the F2pool official website by:https://www.f2pool.com; click the search button at the top right corner. Secondly, entering the wallet address setting in the mining software, clicking “Go”; then ,you can check the status of miner and the account revenue as shown below:
