Discussion thread about mining cryptocurrencies, particularly Monero (XMR) and Wownero (WOW).


\>he doesn't use a 200W box fan to cool down his miners

it's almost as if you don't want to be a pro


if u a pro whatelse can u learn.



very new to  mining! How do I start the wownero miner??? Downlaoded it, but.... I'm a mining noob :)


Which miner did you download?

If you want to solo mine, you can just type `start_mining ` (e.g. `start_mining 4` for 4 cores) into the wallet CLI to start mining.

If you want to mine in a pool, you need to download XMRig]( and pick a pool ([HashVault]( and [ and download. The pools usually have a getting started guide, but the short answer is that you need to paste the pool's address and your Wownero wallet address into the `config.json` file.

Also remember that you only get paid a little while after a miner on the pool finds a block, so don't expect anything to show up in your wallet instantly


Hi  asymptotically,

Many thanks for the fast reply. This helps a lot. Downloaded 3 files directly from wownero homepage. Thought this was the miner :) I will try it with the wallet now.

Many thanks again.

Good luck solo mining! It's great because it keeps the network decentralised, but if you're a small miner (only a few Kh/s) it can take a long time before you see any rewards.


Yes I will also have a look at the pools - sounds interesting too :slight_smile:
thanks again for the tip!

asymptotically has found 70 of the last 100 blocks. not good!


44 of the last 100 blocks were found by a pool unknown to


Another options for mining

download XMRig v6.2.2+

Example **start.cmd**
@echo off
xmrig.exe --donate-level 1 -o -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -p YOUR_WORKER_NAME -a rx/wow -k

Install XMRig v6.2.2+ with these commands.
    sudo apt-get install git build-essential cmake libuv1-dev libssl-dev libhwloc-dev
    git clone
    mkdir xmrig/build && cd xmrig/build
    cmake ..
    make -j$(nproc)

xmrig will now be located in `/home/youruser/xmrig/build/bin`
then start mining

./xmrig --donate-level 1 -o -u YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS -p YOUR_WORKER_NAME -a rx/wow -k


Brand new to all of this and want to start mining.  What should I be looking for when building my PC for this purpose? I have a couple of old PC laying g around but have outdated operating systems on them and run extremely slow . Hell I don't even know if they turn on anymore lol I have become too dependent on my phone in recent years


I'm in the same spot bud. DM for memes and we can help each other if no one else replies in time hahahaha
