>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 :slight_smile:

Which miner did you download?

If you want to solo mine, you can just type start_mining <cores> (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 are good choices :slight_smile:) 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 :slight_smile: 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!

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
