XDAG Mining Tutorial

XDAG, which is short for Dagger, is an encrypted currency, based on the DAG (directed acyclic graph), substituting for the blockchain technology. One transaction is included in each block, and each block also stands for one address.

XDAG can be mined through GPU card and CPU, supporting both Windows and Linux system. Here is the outline of GPU mining below:

1. Wallet address

Official: https://xdag.io/

NOTE: wallet address generated by exchanges can not used to mine xdag.

2. Obtain the mining software

  • F2Pool version(recommended)

For Linux miners, mining software under Linux can be obtained from the link above.

3. Orders (mining parameters)

Obtain the mining software above,unzip it and locate on “start” file, here taking F2Pool version software as an example, as below:

Right click on it and choose “edit” to open the file. The parameter setup as below:

The batch file is needed to be setup while using original version mining software, and fill the parameters above, the software of this version does not support worker name configuration, nor does the worker name reveals.

NOTE:

  1. If there has integrated GPU card, set the parameter: -opencl-platform 1, otherwise it shall be -opencl-platform 0.
  2. Delete the parameter”-nividia-fix” while mining by AMD card.
  3. “-mid” can not be recognized by original version mining software, but available in F2Pool vesion.
  4. you can use the code “-cl-local-work 768” to increase your miner machine’s hashrate, “786” is parameters which could be adjusted according the conditions.
