  2. Unpack the downloaded file
  3. In the unpacked directory, you will find several bat files.4 files.
  4. Create a new bat file called MAXCOIN-START.bat with the following:

Create MAXCOIN-START.bat Syntax:

Syntax:

setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
sgminer.exe –no-submit-stale -k keccak -o stratum+tcp://pool_address:port -u user.worker -p worker_password

With thecoin.pw:

  • You need to create an account and create a worker within your account.
  • Address: thecoin.pw
  • Port: 4100
  • Replace the username and worker from your created account.
  • Example of thecoin.pw (1 line):
    sgminer.exe –no-submit-stale -k keccak -o stratum+tcp://thecoin.pw:4100 -u user.worker -p worker_password
  • Save and run .bat file.

With Crypto Hub:

  • You need to create an account to access the pool.
  • Address: cryptohub.online
  • Port: 5000
  • Replace the username with the email that you used to register. If you wish to specify a worker name, place the worker name after the email, starting with :
  • Example of Crypto Hub (1 line):
    sgminer.exe –no-submit-stale -k keccak -o stratum+tcp://cryptohub.online:5000 -u [email protected]:worker_name -p x
  • Save and run .bat file.

With zpool:

  • Zpool pays in BTC, so you need to pass your BTC address as username. Zpool does not care about worker password.
  • Address: keccak.mine.zpool.ca
  • Port: 5133
  • Example of zpool (1 line):
    sgminer.exe –no-submit-stale -k keccak -o stratum+tcp://keccak.mine.zpool.ca:5133 -u 18QDfuLJnEyHbCvioD39CkuhKZzMUDrRFS -p x
  • Save and run .bat file.

With MiningPoolHub:

  • You need to create an account and create a worker within your account.
  • Address: hub.miningpoolhub.com
  • Port: 20461
  • Replace the username and worker from your created account.
  • Example of MiningPoolHub (1 line):
    sgminer.exe –no-submit-stale -k keccak -o stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:20461 -u user.worker -p worker_password
