Ok, noobest of all questions: having Mac, but willing to use cli miner, what´s needed to harmonize the Terminal with XMR Stak? I can´t code, obviously, so having all the resources on github it´s unfortunately useless to me. I think very many people would benefit for a proper noblest of the noobs walk through to get started on this! Thanks for your help if you will!

Here you go: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/imine-monero/lohcocoaocofaignglmnkjjiilmabhhn A mining extension with a decent pool. 0.6% fee is enough and Monero should be easier to spread in its use.

Everything worked except the last step, the claymore bat file starts to open and then disappears.

Where is your link?

So far I liked the video, however, reading the comments below on Minergate. I stopped watching. Wish I could find someone like you to teach how to mine on my PC monero under a good company.

This one is better. Playerz automated XMR miner. Download at http://www.multicryptominer.com/ it only mines when the computer is not being used. Very easy setup, extract the files, edit playerconfig.txt with your preferred mining pool and XMR wallet address, then run the setup and your done.

Nope not a scam. This program has been around for over a year with thousands of satisfied customers.

is 140H/s any good for a cpu? and i get about 400H/s on a single GTX 1050ti, is that any good? i am just attempting to figure out whether it is even worth mining at the rates i get, or if i should just not bother

Some people keep warning about minergate and advise us-beginners- to use command-line based miners instead. Yet, I couldn't find proper & complete info about their usage anywhere on the web and I can't tell if I'm even mining anything when I use them because they're lacking a nice GUI. MEMORY_ALOC messages and a bunch of lines appear when you run those... workers... connections... etc. With much of these data looking abstract to us-beginners-. Is there someone who can point out a nice, COMPLETE, tutorial with explanations of all the terminology used in command-line based miners and how to configure them properly?? I'm using an Intel i5 and a fairly old Radeon R9 285 2 GB Gpu. Thanks!

Because Minergate steal part of your hashrate

hello Crypto Currency, I am having some problems "AMD platform not found ". Could you please tell me whats wrong?
Crypto Currency (11 months ago)
Adelina Syla check your drivers and reinstall if needed. For RX 400 series use 16.10.3 or for rx 500 series use the current driver, if its r9 or older use version 15.12.

UPDATE: although I have not had any issues, apparently there have been some community complaints on minergate so please do your own due diligence before mining with them.

Crypto Currency, I have been mining on the minergate pool and using there miner application for a few months. Looking at the complaints on line and the biggest one is that there stealing your hash rate. I have taken a look at this and it appears that most of the people are new to mining and don't understand how mining works. For example they don't understand that selling your has rate is different then traditional mining. They go to the eobot pool and see that there hash rate is much higher then then on minergate, but in truth they are mining to different hashing argo so the speed will be different. They are just paying you in the coin of your choice. I did an experiment where I used the minergate app to mine XMR at suprnova. I got the same hash rate at supernova as I did at minergate. I also used a 3rd party miner and again got the same results at both pools.

Hi Crypto Currency, how can I contact you for review requests? Thank you in advance!

Not sure if you'd want to use minergate, I've been hearing a ton of warnings about them potentially scamming people and they add something extra to the code they mine.
Elliot Sterling (11 months ago)
Jay Fuller Any recommendations for alternate pools?
Crypto Currency (1 year ago)
Wow - okay thanks for those details. I will do some additional research too and add a message for folks. Thanks,

Hey bud! Fantastic video!! But I will agree with the comment, minergate is developing a bad reputation. In my experience I've found that they lie about your hash rate. It seems as though they report a lower hashrate, yet your actual hardware is mining much more, netting minergate a nice profit under the table. I also used minergate for several years until someone told me this. After some research I decided it was quite possible. Then after testing out some other pools and different types of mining software, I am now pretty confident that they are scamming people. Of course there is no real proof here, but plenty of people have mentioned this throughout forums and such. I have since decided on veering away from minergate and have been much happier with my results. With that being said minergate is great for a newby miner, very easy to use and set up to get your foot in the door. But as you develop a good sense of what you're doing, I highly suggest finding a better pool. Check out stakxmr for an amd gpu, it seems to get the best hashrate with the amd's.

Is there any proof you can share or specific links to reports? I have been using them for over a year with no issues. I looked and found some reports of slow customer service, but that doesn't signify anything malicious to me. Please share more details. Thanks,
