PGN (Pigeon Coin) Mining Tutorial

PigeonCoin, which is short for PGN, is a new coin after optimizing the algorithm of RVN, with smallhashrate fluctuation, and the ability of prevent ASIC miners.The new algorithm is: X21S.

PGNcould be mined by GPU miners for both AMD cards and NIVIDIA cards through Windows or Linux system.

Part 1 — Mining Equipment And Environment

Block Explorer: http://explorer.pigeoncoin.org/

Supported: GPU mining (A-card and N-card)

System: Windows, Linux.

Mining software: T-rex (N card), WildRig (A card).

Part 2 — Obtain PGN Wallet Address

Exchanges:QBTC

Please note: Regulatory policies related to cryptocurrency mining differ in each country, and each miner is responsible to understand the associated risks.

Part 3 — Obtain the mining software

F2Pool version

Both the f2pool software and official software will provide the same result, however, you may save time during the setup if you use the f2pool developed mining software. The f2pool version has a batch file for miners and the default mining pool is set to f2pool. Therefore, you can simply replace the wallet address in the configuration parameters with your own PGN wallet address and save the settings.

Original version

T-rex:https://github.com/trexminer/T-Rex/releases

WildRig:https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5023676.0

Part 4 — Miner Configuration

4.1 T-rex (N card)

Obtain the software, install and start it, and go to the configuration page.

Right click on the “start” file, choose “Edit”, and configure the parameters as below:

t-rex -a x21s -o stratum+tcp://pigeon.f2pool.com:5750 -u wallet_address.worker_name -p x

If using F2Pool version software, miners only need to replace the wallet address and the worker name (a name given to your mining machine, which can be letters or numbers and separated by a dot “.”), then save the file and start mining. If using the original one, it is needed to create a batch file yourself by referring to the above command.

After the mining parameters are set, save and run the “start.bat” file to start mining.

 

4.2 WildRig (A card)

Obtain the software, install and start it, and go to the configuration page.

Right click on the “start” file, choose “Edit”, and configure the parameters as below:

wildrig.exe –print-full –algo x21s –opencl-threads auto –opencl-launch auto –url stratum+tcp://pigeon.f2pool.com:5750 –user wallet_address.worker_name –pass x

If using F2Pool version software, miners only need to replace the wallet address and the worker name (a name given to your mining machine, which can be letters or numbers and separated by a dot “.”), then save the file and start mining. If using the original one, it is needed to create a batch file yourself by referring to the above command.

After the mining parameters are set, save and run the “start.bat” file to start mining.

Part 5— Monitoring mining machine status and revenue

To view the operational status and daily income of the mining machine, you can access the f2pool official website, click on the search bar in the upper right corner, and enter the wallet address to check.

You can also view the information through our f2pool app. From the login screen, select “Quick View” in the bottom right corner and enter your wallet address.

Please note: After you set up your miner, it may take a little time before your mining data will sync with the f2pool website and app.
