XMRig is a high performance Monero miner, with official support for Windows. Originally based on cpuminer-multi with heavy optimizations/rewrites and removing a lot of legacy code, since version 1.0.0 completely rewritten from scratch on C++.
Download The Miner here and extract the archive to any folder.
At first launch Xmrig will configure itself, you will just need to enter your data like wallet address etc.
To change configuration, open config.json file and replace the values "YOUR_XMR_ADDRESS.YOUR_PAYMENT_ID.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL":
- YOUR_XMR_ADDRESS - your valid Monero address.
- YOUR_PAYMENT_ID - your payment-ID(PAYLOAD). Use if required.
- YOUR_WORKER - simple short worker name (like worker01). Optional.
- YOUR_EMAIL - your email address for notifications. Optional.
Double check you set your own address and it's correct. Be sure to use your Payment ID if it's required. Set a simple worker name to track your RIG on the pool and an email address to receive alerts when your RIG goes offline. Alternatively, you can set a passphrase instead to access the account settings.
Double click the start.bat on Windows or binary file on Linux to launch the miner.
