Local Mining

To mine locally you will require the daemon to be running.

For Windows users please follow this guide: https://docs.dero.io/rtd_pages/stargate_daemon.html

For Linux users please follow this guide: https://docs.dero.io/rtd_pages/basic_ubuntu.html

Once you have the daemon running you can start the miner.

To do this type CMD into the search bar. This will then open the command prompt box

You will then need to type

dero-miner-windows-amd64 --wallet-address dero1qykyta6ntpd27nl0yq4xtzaf4ls6p5e9pqu0k2x4x3pqq5xavjsdxqgny8270 --mining-threads 6

For Linux users you can start the miner using

./dero-miner-linux-amd64 --wallet-address dero1qykyta6ntpd27nl0yq4xtzaf4ls6p5e9pqu0k2x4x3pqq5xavjsdxqgny8270 --mining-threads 6

As you have the daemon running your machine will mine to this node and you will recieve block, miniblock & Node rewards.

Remote Mining

If you wish to host a full node you can recieve 9% mining rewards for the block mined whilst connected to your node. To do this miners will need to add the daemon rpc address at the end of the command to start the miner.

To set up a node for Windows with rewards please follow this guide: https://docs.dero.io/rtd_pages/stargate_daemon.html

To set up a node for Linux with rewards please follow this guide: https://docs.dero.io/rtd_pages/basic_ubuntu.html
