Easter has gone, hope everyone had a lovely break. Back to the grind!
Let's see how many of us we can get signed up at the official Maxcoin forums.
Welcome to our humble Maxcoin pool. We have been operating since the release of Maxcoin and have been listed as an approved pool by the official Maxcoin development team.
1. Create account.
- Register here, or login if you already have account
- Create a worker that will be used by the miner to login
2. Download a miner.
- For NVidia cards, use cudaminer. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=167229.0
- For ATI cards, use cgminer. https://github.com/Eropi4/cgminer_keccak/releases
3. Configure your miner.
Settings for Stratum (recommended):
If you use a command-line miner, type:
./cudaminer --algo=keccak -l K1024x32 -L 128 -o stratum+tcp://pool.maxcoin.co.nz:3333 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password
You will need to try your own values of 'K1024x32' to suit your machine. For more information see the README file in the cudaminer download.
./cgminer --keccak -o stratum+tcp://pool.maxcoin.co.nz:3333 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password
If you want, you can create additional workers with usernames and passwords of your choice here
4. Create a Maxcoin address to recieve payments.
- Downloading the client & block chain: Download the Maxcoin client from here.
Generate a new address and input it on your account page to receive payments.
We've just added a chatbox to the Dashboard page - so come and say 'hi' to your fellow miners!
We've moved to 0% fees indefinitely to help support the maxcoin community.
Everyone should set their payments details in 'My Account' -> 'Edit Account'
I recommend setting the 'Automatic Payment Threshold' to 0.5 so you get paid as quickly as possible.
Donations are welcome if you can afford it.
Have a great time!
Congratulations and thanks everyone!
We found our first block, and the payouts have been confirmed and sent. Enjoy your MAX!
It may take a while to get our first block, but when we do you will get a larger share of the block reward, so just be patient and you'll get what you deserve!
We will be annoucing some giveaways on our twitter @maxcoinnz so follow us and keep mining to be in to win some free MAX!
