Mining

How to Plot?

Plotter ID

Click on Diskcoin PID Generator to check whether your PID is applicable. If yes, you are no need to replot files to mine DISC. If your PID is not applicable, you need to use the tool to generate new PID and then plot if you want to mine DISC. Kindly note that with the PID generated by Diskcoin PID Generator, you could also mine other POC coins together.

How to Mine Diskcoin?

Preparation for mining

1.A hard disk mining device that has been assembled and plotted.

2.A Linux/Windows/MacOS system computer that can install the Diskcoind wallet.

3.A Windows system computer that can run the dcminer.

Deploy Diskcoind wallet

Please click the link to download the wallet according to your system: https://github.com/diskcoin-apps-team/wiki/releases

alt

Linux system:

Install the Diskcoind

Please copy it to the prepared Linux server and unzip it.

Modify the configuration file

The configuration file "diskcoin.conf" does not need to modify by default, unless the ports are occupied.

Start the Diskcoind service

Enter the Diskcoind directory

cd diskcoin

Start Diskcoind service command

./diskcoin-qt -rpcbind=127.0.0.1 -rpcallowip="127.0.0.1/32"

Wait for the Diskcoind to sync full node data

./diskcoin-cli getinfo View current block height

./diskcoin-cli getblockcount View the latest height

If the two values are the same, then the full node data has been synced, indicating that you can start mining.

Windows/MacOS system:

Install the Diskcoind

Please copy it to the prepared Windows or MacOS server and unzip it. If you have previously installed the Diskcoin wallet, please delete previous data before installation.

Start Diskcoind service command First enter the installation directory of Diskcoin, there is a diskcoin-qt.exe file, as the figure shows:

alt

Windows:

Press "Windows" and "R" at the same time, there is a search box. Enter "cmd" to go to the Windows console and execute the following startup command.

Your wallet installation path/diskcoin-qt.exe  -rpcallowip=127.0.0.1/32 -rpcbind=127.0.0.1 

alt

MacOS:

MacOS is the same operation, but the command is different. MacOS startup command:

Applications/Diskcoin-Qt.app/Contents/MacOS/Diskcoin-Qt -rpcallowip=127.0.0.1/32 -rpcbind=127.0.0.1```

If the wallet can be launched, the operation is successful and the miner file can be configured. As the figure shows:

How to get the wallet address?

When you open the wallet, it need some time to sync. As the figure shows: alt

Click on "receive", and then click on the "Request payment" to get the wallet address. alt

Please keep your wallet confidential when you successfully get the wallet address. As the figure shows:

alt

Start mining

The dcminer needs to run in the windows environment.

Modify the mining device configuration file: miner.conf

"Server": "127.0.0.1",
"Port": 63336,
"UpdaterAddr": "127.0.0.1",
"UpdaterPort": 63336,
"InfoAddr": "127.0.0.1",
"InfoPort": 63336,
MinerName = m1 #can be empty

Others can use the default value.

Please run dcminer with this order, it is recommended to use dcminerAVX512 first. If it can not be started, then use dcminerAVX2. and then dcminerAVX. If the three mentioned above cannot be started, you could use the dcminer.exe.
