Mining Intense Coin

Intense Coin (ITNS) is a new crypto currency based on the CryptoNight algorithm (it is also used in Monero). In that post, we’ll look at how and what better to mine this cryptocurrency.

As the developers themselves write, virtual private networks (VPN) – a mechanism for anonymous and hidden Internet traffic from unintentional eyes. The popularity of VPN has recently increased, as anonymity and censorship on the Internet have become increasingly visible threats to Internet users. Intense seeks to satisfy this interest in anonymity.

The developers plan to offer a new approach to the purse of the crypto currency, which will act as a peer node and be able to create an encrypted tunnel for data exchange. VPN providers will receive Intense Coin (ITNS) in exchange for their services and will be able to indicate the tariffs for their services. In addition, the CryptoNote protocol eliminates the tracking of the payment chain and offers true anonymity.

Wallet

First, go to the official website of intensecoin.com, download it to the desired folder and unzip it.

Further in the folder we find a file called Intensecoin and run it.

The purse is ready, at the top you will see your address.

Pool

Next, you need to select a pool, take it from the same official site, intensecoin.com/pool/.

Why him? It’s simple, about a third of the network’s power is concentrated on it, and the more power, the more likely the blocks are.

There is one more pool https://intensemining.pro/, but I did not use it, although the power on it seems to be quite good.

Soft and its configuration

Let’s move on to the most interesting thing – setting up the software. Since the CryptoNight algorithm is used here, we will be able to mine, both on the processor and on the video card.

On CPU:

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

Go to the resource GitHub and download the version for the processor:


First, configure the “config” file, you can open it using notepad or visual studio.
Next we find the stringes:

"pool_address" : "pool.usxmrpool.com:3333",
"wallet_address" : "",
"pool_password" : "",

They need to be replaced by:

“pool_address” : “45.32.171.89:4444”,
“wallet_address” : “iz5SUBsbVTR2oWFNNhb1zAEupGnK9axgLRaReJCWQV3iLCj39nASHhm8w5Cb5r628VYf5NgwiUEmohr3Xg97RxcA3A3KeEaNf”,
“pool_password” : “x”,

Where:

  • iz5SUBsbVTR2oWFNNhb1zAEupGnK9axgLRaReJCWQV3iLCj39nASHhm8w5Cb5r628VYf5NgwiUEmohr3Xg97RxcA3A3KeEaNf – address of your wallet (you need to change).
  • 45.32.171.89:4444 – address of the pool, together with the indication of the port.

And looking for a search:

"cpu_threads_conf" :
null,

Change it 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 },
{ "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 5 },
],

Each line is the connection of another processor core. I have a six-core therefore I connect five, and I leave one for work.

Save and run the file “xmr-stak-cpu”.

You should see something like the following picture:

loading...

On GPU:

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

  • Ссылка для AMD;
  • Ссылка для Nvidia;

Here it is necessary to make some manipulations in the file “config”, for this we find the line “gpu_thread_num”: 1, the number is changed depending on the video cards installed in the machine

Further in the 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 need to delete 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 processor on the processor.

If everything went off successfully to appear such a picture:

 You can check the hasht 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 “Your Stats & Payment History” field where we insert our purse address should look like this:

If you have problems, please recheck the code.

Mining Intense Coin after fork CryptoNight V7

At first you need download a new miner.

For mining on AMD, Nvidia or CPU, we will use one miner called xmr-stak-win64, which is downloaded from the developer’s link on Github.

After download, open the folder and run the file xmr-stak.exe, and then you will see a console window, you need to answer a few questions.

  1. Initially, press any 1 digit and press Enter.
  2. Next, write the name of the coin monero7 and press Enter.
  3. Specify the pool address – pool.intense.hashvault.pro:5555.
  4. In the next line, specify your purse address and press Enter.
  5. In the password line: x and press Enter.
  6. On the question of device identification, you can leave an empty field and press Enter.
  7. For questions about using nicehash and multiple pools, answer – n and press Enter.

If something is incorrect, then you can edit the pools.txt file, all the information in these lines:
«pool_list» :

[
{«pool_address» : «pool.intense.hashvault.pro:5555», «wallet_address» : «iz4Y2wk6vA5aEQSzi7VuNL28xB665aju8coSaPq8nEb3BeUQ2uCLLZyPRQryZKA1DZfgxEtP3xnBMgKvEUmLkTQB1dTK4tNZh», «rig_id» : «», «pool_password» : «x», «use_nicehash» : false, «use_tls» : false, «tls_fingerprint» : «», «pool_weight» : 1 },
],

Run xmr-stak.exe – the process of mining started. If you want to see hashrate press “h”.

Initially the miner uses only one core.

Therefore, we go into the file cpu.txt and find the lines:

«cpu_threads_conf» :
[
{ «low_power_mode» : false, «no_prefetch» : true, «affine_to_cpu» : false },
],

We need to replace them with: «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 },
],

Again running xmr-stak.exe and we will see increased hashrate.

The number of lines depends on the number of cores that you want to use, note that the account starts with 0, not 1. Those. In this example, 4-cores will be used.
