We give some efficient card recommendations further down. Dogecoin is now a little over a year old, and a lot has happened in that time, far too much to list here! But in terms of mining Dogecoin, there have been some major changes. Some of the most important have been:. What does it mean for mining Doge? Due to the combined effect of these changes, directly mining Dogecoin with a CPU or GPU is now extremely difficult in terms of getting any sort of reasonable payout.
However, all is not lost! You can use this long string of letters as the address to use when you want to receive money in to your wallet.
At this point, you should probably also go up to the Settings menu and Encrypt Wallet. This gives some protection if your computer is hacked or infected by wallet-seeking malware.
You might notice that when you first install your Doge wallet, it has to synchronize with the network. This is typically quite a slow process and can take a number of hours. However, read on — you can start mining even before your wallet is fully synced.
The problem is that the difficulty in solving a single block is usually far too high for a single, solo miner to complete. In other words, you could be mining for days, and not solve a block, while someone else solves it in the meantime and you end up with nothing. To join a mining pool, you just sign-up on their website. The quality of the pools varies, and reliability is a bit of an issue since some pools can go offline for various reasons.
Two popular mining pools that use this model are:. They will allow you to use a miner program that supports the X11 algorithm, then whatever coins are mined possibly Darkcoin and others get automatically exchanged for Doge, and paid to your wallet address. Update — Unfortunately both simplemulti and pandapool have now shut down. You see this reddit discussion for some suggestions, or you could try the following multi-coin pools:.
Lots of Dogecoin waiting for Shibe. Because X11 is a different mining algorithm compared to Scrypt, the hashrate range is different, and usually much higher.
Now you can download a miner program — Note: These miners typically use the Dogecoin Scrypt algorithm, so you may not be able to use them for mining on X11 pools. To do this, we will change the startup parameters for the miner.
First, go to your mining pool website and see if they have a Getting Started guide. Currently, the most basic way to connect to this pool using the CPU miner is by using the format:.
The parameters above are the minimum you need to start working with any miner, and should often work OK without specifying anything else. CUDA Manager will use the same worker and stratum settings as above, and just choose any Nickname for the miner.
Either way, you can try starting it to see what happens. Head over to a mining pool and sign up using the registration form.
There is a great poll with an up-to-date list of Dogecoin pools and how well they are rated over in this forum post which should help you out. After you have registered you need to create a worker, go to the "My Workers" page and create a new one with the username "1" and the password "x".
This is where it starts to differ for mac and linux. On Windows open up notepad and type the following in, replacing the bits in caps with the corresponding information.

This can be an overwhelming, frustrating journey for newbies like me I get this error. PTseller on December 17, , Great advice on switching pools, after I did that it went through with no problems.
When it begins mining, there are batches of missed threads and then it will miss all threads after several minutes and I have to restart the miner program. I am using an laptop just to get a feel for mining and don't expect any valuable returns. The bottom part of the log continues the same with no "yays" until I restart. Is that normal, and am I getting shares for mining if it isn't saying "yay"? December 17, , Hashrate is starting to get a bit high for cpu mining to be effective at current growth rate.
I got on with one of my old gpu's early on and am sitting quite a lot of them, but I have definitely noticed a drastic slowdown lately as the hashrates in general are skyrocketing. PTseller on December 18, , Destined on December 18, , PTseller on December 19, , Finally i got it! Well how many workers i can add on pool? And if i having same ip address it won't work?

Since I have last posted I have got it to start mining and I'm very excited but I am only at a Khash of 5. Is there any way to boost that? I feel like 5 is extremely sad. The mining sometimes works and I would get coins but a lot of the time, it would stop working and say cannot connect to server Is there a fix to this? I am not getting as much of an output as I expected. Anyone have a solution? Try Reinstaling the program to fix the proble.
