YEC (Ycash) Mining Tutorial

Ycash is a community-led project and is completely independent from both the Electric Coin Company and the Zcash Foundation. At block height 570,000 of the Zcash blockchain (2019-7-18), Ycash forked away from Zcash.

The algorithm of Ycash is Equihash192.7, supporting GPU card mining and it may change the algorithm in the future to prevent ASIC.

Part 1 — Mining Equipment And Environment

Algorithm: Equihash192.7;

System: Windows,Linux;

Mining software:

GMiner (Nvidia card & AMD card)

lolMiner (Nvidia card & AMD card)

Exchanges:

BigOne

Soft wallet (App):

Cobo walletBitpie

Official wallet: https://github.com/ycashfoundation/yecwallet/releases

Part 3 — Obtain the mining software

F2Pool Version

F2Pool has helped miners to set up the batch file. The default pool is F2Pool. Miners can conveniently just change the wallet address in your installed software, then save the file and start mining.

lolMiner:https://github.com/Lolliedieb/lolMiner-releases/releases

Part 4 — Miner Configuration

4.1 Gminer

Download and unzip the software in the “start” file, as below:

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

miner.exe –algo 192_7 –pers ZcashPoW –server yec.f2pool.com –port 4500 –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.

4.2 Lolminer

Download and unzip the software in the “start” file, as below:

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

miner.exe –algo 192_7 –pers ZcashPoW –server yec.f2pool.com –port 4500 –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.

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.
