To mine Dogecoin, download the Dogecoin client, choose CPU or GPU mining, find a pool, create an account and a worker and download a mining program. Setup your batch file, and open it to start mining.Continue Reading
Go to Dogecoin's homepage, and download the Dogecoin client. When it is finished downloading, open it. Wait while the client downloads the blockchain.
If you are using an integrated graphics card, mine with your computer's CPU. If you have a dedicated graphics card, especially an AMD, GPU mining is ideal.
Mine on your own or collaborate with other miners in a pool. Mining with a pool is usually better for anyone not running a powerful computer. When mining alone, it is possible to never hit a block. A pool works together and splits the profits evenly according to the amount of power put in by each member.
There are numerous mining pools. Browse a Dogecoin community website and choose one. Sign up, and create a worker and a password. Take note of the pool's port number.
Search for software called CGMiner. Download it, and extract the contents from the .zip file onto your hard drive.
If you are GPU mining, go to the folder that containers cgminer.exe. Press the right mouse button to open a new .txt file. Type "cgminer.exe —scrypt -o url:port -u username.workername -p workerpassword" without the quotation marks, and substitute your pool URL, port number, worker name and password. Save the .txt file as "GPUMiner.bat" without the quotation marks.
If you are CPU mining, download the software called cpuminer instead of CGMiner, and type "minerd.exe -o url:port -u username.workername -p workerpassword" without the quotation marks in the .txt file, and substitute your personal information.
Open the .bat file you just created, and CGMiner or cpuminer starts mining. Monitor the progress at the pool's website.
