No Coins - Gen Set/3 Days Mining/Upgraded Solver


Dear all,

I have not received any coins after a few days 'mining'. I know the difficulty went up and despite upgrading my zcashd to include Tromp's solver via Sarath's updated client I am still yet to receive any balance.

How am I able to list my TADDR? zcash-cli Z_listaddresses doesn't appear to have a corresponding command for T?


I read somewhere, that it's best not to use all cores (and also excl. HyperThreading cores into calculation) as it performs better. I have an i5-6500 thus, set to 3.

Please advise,


You are not mining. For Saraths miner to work you need to connect to a pool.


There is also an integration into zcashd (as well as standalone) see here but they may well be using the standalone miner


Actually that's been superseded by this


Yes. My changes are in zcash master branch.

Start your daemon with "-equihashsolver tromp" option.


Hi @sarath-hotspot,

You are a very big surprise to this community. Thank you for your contributions.

On the zcash master branch, is the integration of tromp solver both for CPU and CUDA? How would I implement it if I will use
* CPU only
* CUDA (nvidia gpu) only
* both (if supported)



i have the same problem :frowning: somebody can help ? in standalone mining 0 coins in 3 days


Feels good to contribute to zcash/opensource community.

My changes support only CPU miner.
I didn't integrate GPU miner.


Here are my steps:

Followed the BETA guide ( but instead of
git clone
I did
git clone

Secondly, installed the miner, following this guide:

Started the deamon on first terminal screen:
cd ./zcash
./src/zcashd -daemon
./src/zcash-cli getnewaddress

Opened second terminal screen:
cd ./zminer
./src/zcash-miner -stratum=stratum+tcp:// \
-user=//TADDR// -printtoconsole -debug

I didn't follow the git clone as I assumed that would overwrite @sarath-hotspot 's miner

Mining for another 18 hours or so and still no coins - can anyone point me where I might be going wrong?



In the zcash or zminer directory? Didn't seem to work for me the 'normal' way:

~/zcash$ ./src/zcashd -daemon -equihashsolver tromp
Error: There is no RPC client functionality in zcashd. Use the zcash-cli utility instead.


Correction. There should be a = between equihashsolver and tromp.

./src/zcashd -daemon -equihashsolver=tromp


Right - one step closer. And perhaps, silly question - what happens if you run:

./src/zcash-miner -stratum=stratum+tcp:// \
-user=//TADDR// -printtoconsole -debug

Without running the daemon. It seems to be display 'submitted and accepted' so wonder if it's actually working. If not, how do I configure the poolminer to use all cores as it appears to be unaffected by the zcash.conf


I'm having a similar problem. If you've figured out how to list the t_addresses I would be grateful if you could share how. I generated a few t_addresses so I have no idea to what address I'm mining to.


Search for the gui wallet for linux. That or use a 'cloud' based wallet like Poloniex
