VTC (VertCoin) Mining Tutorial

Key Information:

Algorithm: Lyra2REv3

Supported: GPU mining

Website: https://vertcoin.org/

Block Explorer: https://www.coinexplorer.net/VTC

Part 1 — Mining equipment and environment

Mining equipment: It supports GPU (N-card, A-card) mining. It doesn’t support ASIC mining machines.

Operating system: Windows, Linux and currently does not support Mac system.

Mining software: Ccminer (NVIDIA), CryptoDredge (NVIDIA), Sgminer (AMD).

Part 2 — Obtain VTC Wallet Address

VTC wallet address can be obtained through:

Full node wallet (Windows & MacOS & Linux):

https://vertcoin.org/download/

App(Android & iOS):

Coinomi

Exchanges:

Bittrex;      Poloniex;       CryptoBridge.

Part 3 — Download mining software

The mining software can be downloaded through the following links:

f2pool mining software (NVIDIA & AMD):

Official mining software:

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 VTC wallet address and save the settings.

Please set up the software according to the parameters within this mining guide.

Part 4 — Set mining parameters

4.1 Ccminer mining software (N-card)

Download the Ccminer mining software and unzip the files. Right click on “start.bat” and click “Edit”.

Set the parameters as follows:

ccminer-x64.exe -a lyra2v3 -o stratum+tcp://vtc.f2pool.com:5810 –wallet_address.worker_name -p x

Set the VTC pool URL and port number, and set your own VTC wallet address and worker name as shown in the image above. If you have multiple miners, the worker name is used to distinguish between different machines. The wallet address and worker name should be separated by a period “.”.

Do not delete any space or punctuation mark when modifying the file, as that will cause the file to be corrupted. Please save the file after the modifications are completed.

After saving the “start.bat” file and then double-click to start mining.

4.2 CryptoDredge mining software (N-card)

Download the mining software and unzip the files. Right click on “start.bat” and click “Edit”.

Set the parameters as follows:

CryptoDredge -a lyra2v3 -o stratum+tcp://vtc.f2pool.com:5810 -u wallet_address.worker_name -p x

Set the VTC pool URL and port number, and set your own VTC wallet address and worker name as shown in the image below. If you have multiple miners, the worker name is used to distinguish between different machines. The wallet address and worker name should be separated by a period “.”.

Do not delete any space or punctuation mark when modifying the file, as that will cause the file to be corrupted. Please save the file after the modifications are completed.

After saving the “start.bat” file and then double-click to start mining.

4.3 Sgminer mining software (A-card)

Download the mining software and unzip the files. Right click on “start.bat” and click “Edit”.

Set the parameters as follows:

setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 1
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 95
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 95
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 95

.\sgminer.exe -k lyra2Rev3 -o stratum+tcp://vtc.f2pool.com:5810 -u wallet_address.worker_name -w 256 -I 24 -p x

Check the VTC pool URL and port number, and set your own VTC wallet address and worker name as shown in the image above. The wallet address and the worker name should be separated by a period “.”.

After saving the “start.bat” file and then double-click to start mining.

Now you’re ready 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.

Happy Mining 🐟
