Quick Mining setup guide for XMR monero mining/donation.

MinerGate xFast GUI Miner configuration: Very simple to get started.
     Just enter this [email protected] and click start mining.

Select XMR and the number of CPU cores then click start mining and also GPU mining if possible.  

XMR-STAK-RX Method 1 -  Easiest method:
Just download this pool config text file below and place it in the miner root folder where the exe is located. 

                 Download and extract the pool text file and place it in the miner folder where the exe is located:   
After placing the text file in the folder, run the program as administrator, always run as admin to avoid memory issues.

                     Pool text file - alternatively just copy and paste this over your existing pool file if it exists.

 * pool_address    - Pool address should be entered as "pool_address:port" (e.g "pool.ryo-currency.com:4444"). Only stratum pools are supported.
 * wallet_address  - Your wallet, or pool login.
 * rig_id          - Rig identifier for pool-side statistics (needs pool support).
 * pool_password   - Can be empty in most cases or "x".
 * use_nicehash    - Limit the nonce to 3 bytes as required by nicehash.
 * use_tls         - This option will make us connect using Transport Layer Security.
 * tls_fingerprint - Server's SHA256 fingerprint. If this string is non-empty then we will check the server's cert against it.
 * pool_weight     - Pool weight is a number telling the miner how important the pool is. Miner will mine mostly at the pool
 *                   with the highest weight, unless the pool fails. Weight must be an integer larger than 0.

"pool_list" :
    {"pool_address" : "xmr.pool.minergate.com:45700", "wallet_address" : "[email protected]", "rig_id" : "", "pool_password" : "", "use_nicehash" : false, "use_tls" : false, "tls_fingerprint" : "", "pool_weight" : 1 },

 * Currency to mine. Supported values:
 *    arqma
 *    loki
 *    monero
 *    wownero
 * Native algorithms which do not depend on any block versions:
 *    # 256KiB scratchpad memory
 *    randomx_arqma
 *    # 1MiB scratchpad memory
 *    randomx_wow
 *    # 2MiB scratchpad memory
 *    randomx
 *    randomx_loki

"currency" : "monero",


or setup the miner manually in a few easy steps

XMR-STAK-RX Method 2 - Manually configuring the miner...
 After downloading start the program as administrator and select Y to run simple setup mode.                          
                                                      Here type monero without the - as the currency and press Enter key.
   Enter this pool address : xmr.pool.minergate.com:45700 and press Enter.

Enter this username:  [email protected]  and press Enter.                 Leave password blank/empty and just press Enter.                 

  Does this pool support TLS/SSL? type a capital N, it will not accept a small n.

Thats it ! This should be all that is required for mining.

If this error below appears just ignore it to reconnect in a few seconds:
SOCKET ERROR - [xmr.pool.minergate.com:45700] CONNECT error: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

Thank you for your donations.
