Frustrated Newbie

Post by stockfadi » Mon Apr 02, 2018 1:55 pm

I've been mining for about 2 months now. I finally came across this pool. But I am unable to get the right command for my miners to start running.

I am using 6 moonlander ASIC USB sticks running BFG miner. I would just like someone to simple give me the proper command as to run my miners and start diggin. .

This is what my typical command line looks like.

bfgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://us2.litecoinpool.org:3333 -u stockfadi.moonlander -p xxxx,d=128 -S MLD:all --set MLD:clock=832
pause

I want to be paid out in btc. . Please help!

This is the command I am using

bfgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://prohashing.com:3333 -u stockfadi -p a=scrypt,d=128 -S MLD:all --set MLD:clock=832
pause


What the hell am I doing wrong?

the way you have the password argument with ,d= on the end is for a different kind of pool. for the password here you should use password arguments separated by a space not a comma. this is what i use for 4 moonlander 2s on a powered hub:

Code: Select all

bfgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://prohashing.com:3333/#skipcbcheck -u spauk -p "a=scrypt n=moonlander2" -S MLD:com48 -S MLD:com49 -S MLD:com50 -S MLD:com51 --set MLD:clock=832
@pause
i also use the quotation marks to make sure it recognizes all the password arguments with the spaces. if you want to add static difficulty it would look like "a=scrypt d=16384 n=moonlander2" but it works fine on dynamic difficulty, it just takes a couple minutes for the first share at 65536 starting difficulty.

you created a prohashing account right? no reason it shouldn't work. and if you want bitcoin payout then add a bitcoin payout address and change the sliders to 100% bitcoin. not sure how to help you if you don't tell me more

Your difficulty is also too low. I think the minimum difficulty allowed for scrypt is 65536.

I would think twice about bitcoin as a payout with such a low-hash setup.
BE WARNED you may be waiting 2-6 months for a payout from bitcoin due to earnings + threshold minimums to get a payout.

Agreed, your better off choosing another coin for payout and then manually exchange it for btc when your payed out or when you want to.

no actually the minimum static difficulty for scrypt right now is 16384 but it can go down as low as 8192 on dynamic

We should probably add this to the documentation to assist with confusion.

A lot of newcomers aren't aware of how expensive the bitcoin network is, because of the 1MB transaction limit. Litecoin or bitcoin cash are better alternatives for sending money, unless the place you want to spend the money at only accepts bitcoins.
