Phoenix Miner

PhoenixMiner is an Ethash miner that supports both AMD and Nvidia cards. It runs under Windows x64 and Linux x64 and has a build-in fee of 0.65%.

Installation

Download The Miner from GitHub  or from Bitcointalk and extract the archive to any folder.

Configuration

Windows

To change the configuration, open start.bat file and replace the values 

setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

PhoenixMiner.exe -pool ssl://eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999 -pool2 ssl://eth-eu2.nanopool.org:8888 -wal YOUR_WALLET.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL

Linux

Open start.sh file and replace the values 

./PhoenixMiner -pool ssl://eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999 -pool2 ssl://eth-eu2.nanopool.org:8888 -wal YOUR_WALLET.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL

Where:

  • YOUR_WALLET - your valid Ethereum address.
  • YOUR_WORKER_NAME - simple short worker name (like worker01). Optional.
  • YOUR_EMAIL - your email address for notifications. Optional.

Double check you set your own wallet and it's correct. 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.

Failovers

You also can add additional servers. Open epools.txt file and replace the values  the same way as in the start.bat file:

POOL: eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999, WAL: YOUR_WALLET.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, WORKER: , PASS: x, PROTO: 1, COIN: eth, STALES: 1
POOL: eth-eu2.nanopool.org:9999, WAL: YOUR_WALLET.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, WORKER: , PASS: x, PROTO: 1, COIN: eth, STALES: 1
# POOL: eth-us-east1.nanopool.org:9999, WAL: YOUR_WALLET.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, WORKER: , PASS: x, PROTO: 1, COIN: eth, STALES: 1
# POOL: eth-us-west1.nanopool.org:9999, WAL: YOUR_WALLET.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, WORKER: , PASS: x, PROTO: 1, COIN: eth, STALES: 1
# POOL: eth-asia1.nanopool.org:9999, WAL: YOUR_WALLET.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, WORKER: , PASS: x, PROTO: 1, COIN: eth, STALES: 1

WARNING! Remove "#" characters to enable lines, with "#" they are disabled and will be ignored by the miner! And ensure to use the same address, worker name and email you used first time. 

NOTE: Setting failovers is not necessary, but advisable. By settings them up, you can be sure in case of connection loss with the primary server, the miner will automatically reconnect to the secondary one (and so on), and you don't miss out on your valuable mining time.  

Run

Double click the start.bat  (start.sh for Linux)  file to launch the miner.
