Electroneum mining

Electroneum is another trend, among the coins created on the algorithm Cryptonight, which appeared relatively recently (in October ICO just ended), but the price of the coin shows a very good growth. In this article, we decided to tell you how easy it is to mend Electroneum.


To begin with, we need a wallet, where the pool will send coins, and here the first problem arises, there is no wallet with a normal graphical interface, so you need to use either local or directly to the exchange.

I decided to choose the second option, so I’ll tell you how to mine on the Cryptopia exchange.

To create a wallet on this exchange is easy, first in the upper right corner we find the bitcoin logo ( “Balances”).

After clicking, a list of the Crypto-currency and the search bar appears, that’s where you enter the name of the coin.

After clicking on the green arrow and the following window appears:

Do not close it yet, since the information with ETN Address and PaymentId will be useful to us when configuring the miner.


The pool will choose hashvault.pro, since it allows mining directly to the exchange. On it, we need to find information about the address that needs to be specified in the program.

Therefore after the transition we are looking for the “Getting started” tab, where we will see at once, several sections with instructions for the miners.

The difference between them is the availability of a variety of settings including payment id, which is necessary for direct mining on the exchange.

Soft and its configuration

I’m using xmr-stak-cpu, since this program outputs a hashrate more than the Claymore CPU.

Go to the resource GitHub and download the version for the processor. First, configure the “config” file, it can be opened via notepad, notepad ++ or any other text editor.

Next we find the lines:

“pool_address” : “pool.usxmrpool.com:3333”,
“wallet_address” : “”,
“pool_password” : ““,

They need to be replaced by:

“pool_address” : “pool.electroneum.hashvault.pro:5555”,
“wallet_address” : “etnjzKFU6ogESSKRZZbdqraPdcKVxEC17Cm1Xvbyy76PARQMmgrgceH4krAH6xmjKwJ3HtSAKuyFm1BBWYqtchtq9tBap8Qr4M.96de5811bd7b9a9c5a2f7733a1daf5f72389fcc1ee9e95e7d43a004908dc492b”,
“pool_password” : “x”,


etnjzKFU6ogESSKRZZbdqraPdcKVxEC17Cm1Xvbyy76PARQMmgrgceH4krAH6xmjKwJ3HtSAKuyFm1BBWYqtchtq9tBap8Qr4M.96de5811bd7b9a9c5a2f7733a1daf5f72389fcc1ee9e95e7d43a004908dc492b – !!! the first number is the address of your wallet, after point, second number is your payment id. Do not mine to an exchange address without payment-id (for the local only the address is enough).

pool.electroneum.hashvault.pro:5555– address of the pool, together with the indication of the port.

Also looking for a line:

“cpu_threads_conf” :

Now you need to change to:

“cpu_threads_conf” : [
{ “low_power_mode” : false, “no_prefetch” : true, “affine_to_cpu” : 0 },
{ “low_power_mode” : false, “no_prefetch” : true, “affine_to_cpu” : 1 },
{ “low_power_mode” : false, “no_prefetch” : true, “affine_to_cpu” : 2 },
{ “low_power_mode” : false, “no_prefetch” : true, “affine_to_cpu” : 3 },
{ “low_power_mode” : false, “no_prefetch” : true, “affine_to_cpu” : 4 },

Each line from the above array is responsible for connecting another processor core. I have a six-core therefore I connect five, and I leave one for work.

Note that the count begins with the number 0, and not 1!!!

Save and run the file “xmr-stak-cpu.exe”.

Example of the config file for the processor.

If miner correct run, you will see that window

Mining Electroneum on GPU:

For graphics cards, we will also use the modification of this miner:

Here you need to make some settings in the “config” file, for this we find the following values:

“gpu_thread_num” : 1, the number is changed depending on the video cards installed in the machine

Next, in array —

“”gpu_threads_conf” : [
{ “index” : 0, “intensity” : 1000, “worksize” : 8, “affine_to_cpu” : false },
{ “index” : 1, “intensity” : 1000, “worksize” : 8, “affine_to_cpu” : false },
{ “index” : 2, “intensity” : 1000, “worksize” : 8, “affine_to_cpu” : false },
{ “index” : 3, “intensity” : 1000, “worksize” : 8, “affine_to_cpu” : false },
{ “index” : 4, “intensity” : 1000, “worksize” : 8, “affine_to_cpu” : false },
{ “index” : 5, “intensity” : 1000, “worksize” : 8, “affine_to_cpu” : false },

, we have to remove unnecessary information, if we have one card, then the other ones are superfluous and delete all the lines except the one with index 0. If you have two cards, then all the lines except 0 and 1 etc.

Next, the array with the pool and address is filled in as well as for the miner on the processor.

You can check the hashrate on both miners using a letter “h”.

Next, we check whether there are accruals to the pool, for this, on the main page (the “Home” tab), we find the “Payment address” tab where you need to insert the number that you received when generating a wallet with payment id, as we indicated in the program:

If you have problems, please double-check the code.
