rieMiner/Solo Mining

From Riecoin

Here are the instructions to mine Riecoins with rieMiner in solo. We assume that you already downloaded rieMiner from here or built it.

Riecoin Core setup and configuration

First, you need to setup Riecoin Core for solo mining. Read the guide to do it.

Do not confuse the riecoin.conf configuration file with the rieMiner.conf one!

rieMiner configuration

Now, make sure that you have a RPC username (Riecoin Core's rpcuser option) and its password (rpcpassword), the IP of the computer running the wallet and the RPC port (rpcport), and a Bech32 payout address.

You have now two ways to configure rieMiner.

rieMiner assistant

If you start rieMiner for the first time, it will ask a few questions. Just answer with the information in bold above.

If you don't see the assistant (which can happen if you made a mistake and closed the miner before finishing the configuration), make sure that there is no rieMiner.conf file next to the binary, delete it if present.

Manual configuration file

Create a rieMiner.conf next to the rieMiner binary and use the following template.

Mode = Solo
Host = 127.0.0.1
Port = 28332
Username = username
Password = password
PayoutAddress = ric1qpttn5u8u9470za84kt4y0lzz4zllzm4pyzhuge

Read the tuning guide if you want to tune your miner for the best performance, or the README.md to see more options for the configuration file.

Mining

You can now earn Riecoins, Happy Mining!

If you mine with Testnet, you will probably find blocks so fast that many of them are rejected, this is normal (often, the error message will be inconclusive).
