GIN (GINcoin) Mining Tutorial

GINcoin, referred to as GIN; aiming to provide cryptocurrency investors with an easy way of creating and deploying their own masternode(s) – regardless of their technical abilities.

GIN hard fork will occur around 2019-2-15 4:00 pm UTC. The algorithm will be updated to X16RT. Miners who are using the full node wallet should update the wallet version to 1.2.1.0. The existing mining software will no longer support GIN mining at that time. Please use the mining software as the tutorial mentioned after the hard fork (The software is not available to use before the hard fork). Here is the GIN (X16RT) mining tutorial.

GIN supports N-card and A-card mining. CPU’s mining efficiency is too low, and it is not recommended. Both Windows and Linux systems can be used for mining.
