Help a newbie mine zcash on ec2 with a mining pool


#1

Hello,

Can you please help me setup an ec2 instance and use nheqminer (which from what I understand is the best for cpu mining) along with a mining pool (probably suprnova?)
I show this guide https://github.com/Austin-Williams/zcash-guides/wiki/Guide-to-Mining-Zcash-on-Amazon-EC2, but as far as I understand it doesn't use the best miner.
Writing down the commands one-by-one would be super useful!
I would also like to ask, if I start the instance now, would I need to change anything on the setup after the release?

Thank you so much!

Can anybody help?
I found it very difficult

If you are paying list price for EC2, your costs will be 10x even cloud mining costs. My advice is to just wait a while and pick up some ZCash after the markets settle down if you don't know what you're doing.

@lhl I don't care about the cost at the moment. I just want to start mining something.
Could you please tell me what I need to change in that guide?
Thanks!

If you want guaranteed mining tomorrow at 1/2 the cost, just drop by this thread and you'll find plenty of people willing to sell their mining contracts: https://forum.zcashcommunity.com/t/toomim-bros-gpu-mining-software-and-cloud-mining/2080/475
