Quick Start Guide 

We'll be mining Zcash with EWBF miner (Windows/Linux) for Nvidia GPUs and Claymore miner (multi-algorithm miner that available for Windows/Linux too) for AMD GPUs.

For Nvidia
1. Download EWBF miner
    Go to GitHub, download the miner for Windows or Linux and unzip it to any folder 

2. Configure the Miner
    Locate and edit "start.bat" file for Windows and "start.sh" file for Linux OS 

--server zec-eu1.nanopool.org --user YOUR_ADDRESS.YOUR_WORKER_NAME/YOUR_EMAIL --pass z --port 6666

You need to replace "YOUR_ADDRESS" with your ZCash address, "YOUR_WORKER_NAME" with a simple name for your RIG, and replace "YOUR_EMAIL" with your email address to receive alerts from the pool when your RIG goes offline, otherwise, replace it with a passphrase to access the account settings. Once filled, save and close the file.

For AMD
1. Download Claymore 
      Head over to GitHub, download the correct version for your OS and unzip it to any folder 

2. Configure The Miner
      Whether you use Windows or Linux, locate and edit "config.txt" file and make sure it looks like the following: 

-zpool ssl://zec-eu1.nanopool.org:6633
-zwal YOUR_ZEC_ADDRESS.YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL
-zpsw z
-ftime 1

Replace "YOUR_ZEC_ADDRESS" line with your Zcash address, "YOUR_WORKER" with a simple name for your RIG and replace "YOUR_EMAIL" with your email address to receive alerts from the pool when your RIG goes offline, otherwise, replace with a passphrase to access the account setting. Once done, save and close the file.

3. Set Up Failovers
      Edit the "epools.txt file" and fill the same address/worker/email you filled into "config.txt" file. Save and close the file when completed.

POOL: zec-eu1.nanopool.org:6633, WALLET: YOUR_ZEC_WALLET/YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
POOL: zec-eu2.nanopool.org:6633, WALLET: YOUR_ZEC_WALLET/YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
POOL: zec-us-east1.nanopool.org:6633, WALLET: YOUR_ZEC_WALLET/YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
POOL: zec-us-west1.nanopool.org:6633, WALLET: YOUR_ZEC_WALLET/YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0
POOL: zec-asia1.nanopool.org:6633, WALLET: YOUR_ZEC_WALLET/YOUR_WORKER/YOUR_EMAIL, ESM: 0, ALLPOOLS: 0

NOTE: By setting up failovers, you can be sure that in case the miner loses its connection with the primary pool's server, it will automatically reconnect to the secondary server etc. And you don’t miss out on your valuable mining time.

4. Run
      Depending on your OS, double click the start.bat on Windows or start.sh file on Linux to launch the miner.

Additional Information:
      Learn more about Claymore configurations and the miner itself  on GitHub
      Claymore charges additional 1% fee

Remember that other miners also can be used and when it comes to choose a miner, you are welcome to check the alternative miners in addition to the one mentioned above.
