XMRig Setup and Configuration

XMRig Configuration

  1. Unzip the file and extract the files into a new folder (Make sure your anti-virus doesn't delete the files)
  2. Open the config.json file with Notepad
  3. Find and change the following lines:

    • "url: "failover.xmrig.com:443",

    • `"user: "YOUR_WALLET",``

    • In place of failover.xmrig.com:443, you'll need to choose a pool to mine towards. You can check the full list here. Make sure to keep the "! Example-

    "url: "pool.dero.live:5555",
    
    • Instead of YOUR_WALLET, simply paste your public DERO address. Make sure to keep the "! Example-
    "user: "dERoSwiT77kefenBf5xuRY6YxX7c8f5VJWbYjXgHmXhGYWMiWVNqBM43d2E8PNE1fo9rj2VDsL7m3BntKBPKdzai5ZmqmSoMVX",
    
    • If you don't have one yet, you can view a guide on how to make one!
  4. Save the file and:

    • start xmrig.exe if you're mining with your CPU,
    • xmrig-amd.exe. if you're mining with an AMD GPU,
    • or xmrig-nvidia.exe if you're mining with a nVidia GPU.

Remember: if you want to mine with both your CPU and your GPU you must have both programs open at the same time!

That's it! You should be mining away now! :)
