Vectorium Mining for Beginners

Vectorium Mining Guide for Beginners

INSTALL YOUR GPUS AND CONFIGURE YOUR PC

The whole process should take less than 20 minutes, follow these steps:

1) Install your GPUs and configure your PC
2) Get a Vectorium  wallet address
3) Download and install a Vectorium mining program
4) Join a Vectorium solo pool
5) Start mining!

Getting started with Vectorium mining is fairly simple. You don’t need to download the full blockchain or manage technical command-line miners with manual instructions. For this guide’s purpose, I’m going to do a detailed walkthrough of setting up and using the very popular Nvidia EWBF Miner and LoLMiner for AMD Video Cards.

INSTALL YOUR GPUS AND CONFIGURE YOUR PC

When it comes to which GPU card you should choose, Nvidia would be your first choice. It’s important to note that while  AMD cards outperform Nvidia cards for Ethereum mining purposes, Nvidia has a clear advantage in mining Vectorium on the Equihash algorithm using the EWBF Miner.

Whichever card you choose, it should have at least 4 GB of RAM, or it won’t properly mine Vectorium.

GET A VECTORIUM  WALLET ADDRESS

You now have to generate your receiving address. Please note that Vectorium addresses start with the letter V2!

For Windows users —> https://github.com/Vectorium-project/vectorium/releases/download/beta/Vectorium.Wallet.exe
For any other OS (Like Mac or Linux), check our releases page –> https://github.com/Vectorium-project/vectorium/releases.
Alternatively, you can use our official web wallet; sign up on https://wallet.vectorium.co/register.

DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL A VECTORIUM MINING PROGRAM

Now you are ready to download your miner according to your hardware architecture.
Start by navigating to http://pool.vectorium.co/getting_started.

You’ll find both EWBF Miner (CUDA) for Nvidia and LoLMiner (AMD) on this page. Download your preferred one and save it on your desktop.

If those links are broken or don’t work, you can find the latest version of both miners down below:
– Nvidia Windows –> https://mega.nz/#F!fsAlmZQS!CwVgFfBDduQI-CbwVkUEpQ
– Nvidia Linux –> https://mega.nz/#F!3xYlSJDK!kG4kVLg1arbBuq1dd8u9aA
– AMD (both Windows/Linux) –> https://github.com/Lolliedieb/lolMiner-releases/releases/tag/0.8.5

JOIN A VECTORIUM SOLO POOL

Now that everything is set up and ready, you can start mining Vectorium Plus.
The official Vectorium solo pool is located here –> http://pool.vectorium.co/.

Before firing up your GPU cards, you have to indicate to the software (and to the solo pool itself) who you are and where the mined coins should be sent. You’ll find a .bat file for every mining software, which is in charge to start your miner.

For example, this will be a start file for an Nvidia GPU based mining rig. I shall indicate VECT_Pow as a personalization string and my receiving address.
Another important parameter is the server one, don’t forget to point your rig to pool.vectorium.co on port 1000; otherwise, your mining software will never reach our solo pool!

If you have trouble with your start bat, you can see a couple of examples below.

Nvidia EWBF –> miner –algo 192_7 –pers VECT_PoW –server pool.vectorium.co –port 1000 –user YOURWALLETADDRESS.mainnet –pass x
AMD LoLMiner –> lolMiner.exe –coin ZER –pool 167.86.72.139 –port 1000 –user YOURWALLETADDRESS.mainnet –pass x

Once done, save your file!

START MINING!

Now click on your start file and start mining Vectorium!
You can follow your realtime stats on http://pool.vectorium.co/workers/YOURWALLETADDRESS.
