- Get a Siacoin address
Get a compatible miner
ASIC miners come with their own software, which is usually configured over your local network. We expect all (Blake2b) ASICs to support SiaMining's Stratum protocol (port 3333). The server addresses that you can use are listed at the top of this page. Some miners allow you to specify more than one, for failover.
Both AMD and Nvidia GPU users should get the best results with our OpenCL+CUDA Stratum miner, Marlin. Download it here.
Alternative miners (these miners are outdated, but might still give better results on some systems):
- Connect to the pool
You must use your Siacoin address as the username; you can optionally specify a worker name (to help you keep track of your miners) by adding it after a single dot (.). A full username would therefore be of the form YourSiacoinAddress.WorkerName. You can use any password.
Here is a sample configuration for the Antminer A3. You can use any URL from the list at the top of this page.
URL: asia.siamining.com:3333 Worker: YourSiacoinAddress.WorkerName Password: x
Here are command line examples for GPU miners. You can of course configure intensity and other parameters.
./marlin -H us-east.siamining.com:3333 -u YourSiacoinAddress.WorkerName -I 28
./ccminer -a sia -e --url=stratum+tcp://us-east.siamining.com:3333 -u YourSiacoinAddress.WorkerName -i 28
./sgminer --algorithm=sia --url=stratum+tcp://us-east.siamining.com:3333 --userpass=YourSiacoinAddress.WorkerName -I 28
./gominer -url stratum+tcp://us-east.siamining.com:3333 -user YourSiacoinAddress.WorkerName
- Check your stats
Once you've started mining, you can check your stats by entering your Siacoin address below.
Ethereum+Siacoin Dual Mining
Claymore's Dual Miner for GPUs can be used to mine both Ethereum and Siacoin simultaneously. The mining speed for Siacoin will of course be much lower than with a regular miner, but depending on the current profitability of Ethereum and Siacoin it may result in higher total earnings.
Claymore's miner only supports a simplified Stratum protocol for Siacoin, which is available on port 7777. Here are the parameters you need to use:
EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool us1.ethpool.org:3333 -ewal YourEthAddress.WorkerName -epsw x -dpool stratum+tcp://us-east.siamining.com:7777 -dwal YourSiacoinAddress.WorkerName -dcoin sia
