Solo mining with the CPU miner


#1

How can we use the stand alone miner to solomine to wallet instead of if pool?


#2

Instructions are available at https://github.com/zcash/zcash/wiki/Mining-Guide


#3

I don't mean with the wallet, can we use the optimized CPU miner and point it at our wallet instead of a pool?


#4

https://github.com/zcash/zcash/wiki/Mining-Guide this is for solo mining.

Add gen=1 line in $HOME/.zcash/zcash.conf file and restart daemon.

For every new block miner will create new address. So you need to explicitly transfer them to your own address.
To use single address, check https://github.com/zcash/zcash/wiki/Mining-Guide#modifications

Ok. Do you mean str4d's zcash code?

#6

yes his or any other one that may or may not come along. From what i read about bitcoin you could change a few things in it's conf file and then point the miner to your wallet?


#7

If the miner supports GetBlockTemplate then yes, you can. My standalone miner supports Stratum but not GetBlockTemplate (but I'll happily accept a PR for the latter!)


#8

Hello! What solver is now implemented in Your miner?


#9

Currently only the default zcashd solver, but once RC2 is released and I merge that, it will also contain tromp's solver.
