How to mine Ravencoin?

Ravencoin is another interesting coin created by the new algorithm x16r, which in itself is interesting in that it changes a number of algorithms during mining, so it can be called super resistant to mining through the ASICs. In this article, we will tell you how to mine Ravencoin.

Wallet Ravencoin

Let’s download via a link from the official source on Github, where we download the version for Windows.

Run the .exe file and install the wallet. After installation, go to the “File” tab, where we will select “Receiving address” and click on the “New” tab to create your own address.

Next, sign your wallet and click “Ok”.

Done, wallet is ready for use.

Pool Ravencoin

I tried to mine on several pools, but the most effective is rvn.suprnova.cc/index.php.

After registering on the pool, go to the tab “Edit account”

In this window we need to insert your address so that the system can send coins to your wallet, so look for the “Payment Address” line in which you insert your address, and also set the minimum payment in the “Automatic Payout Threshold” field, and then click on button “Update account”.

Next, you need to create a Worker. To do this, go to the “My account” account, where in the “ADD NEW WORKER” label, where in the lines “Worker Name” and “Worker Password” you specify arbitrary values, which we then use in the miner.

 

Miner for Ravencoin and its settings

For Nvidia

Download the miner from the link to the resource Github.

Open the folder and look for the file example.bat,

Open it with a notebook and insert the following line into it:

ccminer -a x16r -o stratum+tcp://rvn.suprnova.cc:6667 -u artur.art -p xx -i 19 –donate 1 -N 300

where:

  • stratum+tcp://rvn.suprnova.cc:6667 – address of the pool with the port;
  • artur.art – login and workers`s name;
  • xx – the password you specified when creating the worker;
  • -i 19 – intensity, if you want to put less simply 19 change to another number.

After editing, run the same file, you will see next console window:

For AMD

For mining Ravencoin on AMD GPU we will use Avermore miner, which you can download from this link.

Open the folder and look for the file example.bat

Find the line starting with “sgminer.exe…”, and replace it with:

sgminer.exe -k x16r -o stratum+tcp://rvn.suprnova.cc:6667 -u arti.art -p xx -X 256

Save and run this file. Wait near 5 minutes, and you will see next console window:

Where:

  • stratum+tcp://rvn.suprnova.cc:6667 – pool addres
  • arti.art – login and workers`s name;
  • xx – the password you specified when creating the worker;

Mining check

To check the mining process, we will go back to the pool interface, namely the “Dashbord” tab.

You will see your current hash and current balance.
