How to do GPU Bitcoin Mining on a Mac with Diablo Miner

59 ratings | 22945 views
If you want a text tutorial along with the video, check it out at my website here: http://www.allhow2s.com/how-to-do-gpu-bitcoin-mining-on-a-mac-with-diablo-miner/ This is an in depth video on how to do GPU Bitcoin mining on an Apple computer with OSX (will work on Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, and Mountain Lion) with DiabloMiner. The video is done on Windows, but the exact same process applies to mining on a Mac (I just didn't have access to a Mac to make the video with, but I have done mining on Macs). If you have any wonky things happening that didn't happen in my video, leave a comment and read the readme that came with DiabloMiner. The mining pool site (where you set up an account): http://cur.lv/s601 The site to download DiabloMiner: http://cur.lv/ufgd command to start GPU mining (has to be run in the directory where the program is): ./DiabloMiner-OSX.sh -u pascal11110.guest -p guest -o api.bitcoin.cz -r 8332 -w 64 Replace pascal11110.guest with your username, guest with your password, api.bitcoin.cz with your mining pools address, and 8332 with you mining pools port. If you have any issues connecting, then try my credentials to see if those work. If they do, then you have typed some of your info in wrong. The client I use as my Bitcoin wallet is Bitcoin qt, which can be downloaded here: http://cur.lv/s5x7 A great chart of what to expect for speeds for a piece of hardware can be found here: http://cur.lv/s5xb Want to get free bitcoins? It doesn't pay much, but if you're just starting out and want a few for your wallet, you can get very small amounts of free coins from this site for visiting other websites: http://cur.lv/s5xh And this one gives you small amounts for just putting in your receiving address every day: http://cur.lv/s5xk You can also earn bitcoins by having people click on URL's you shorten, it just takes them to an ad before it brings them to the site it was linking to, works very well: http://adf.ly/NydBX I now accept donations through Bitcoins! If you don't know what those are, you can get more information about them at bitcoin.org. My average donations are usually less than .001 BTC, but any amount helps me to make more tutorial videos, so any amount is gladly accepted. 1MnKDhmir2VLYNjpbZzCVinJsSH7vqnALT Check out my facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/All-How-2s/198429346974010 or my twitter: https://twitter.com/AllHow2s Or my website where I have a lot of other great tutorials (such as how to take a screenshot, or how to get the start button back on Windows 8): www.allhow2s.com

I realized that part was probably pretty frustrating for more advanced users to sit through. I'm still trying to find a good balance between making it easy enough for anyone to do, and getting through it quickly enough for the advanced users to not get bored. I'm working on this and will improve, thank you for your input.

G San (5 years ago)
Hi, Thanks for your video. How is this going to help me get coins exactly?
howtwos101 (5 years ago)
Really any of the ASIC/FPGA miners work just as advertissed (Block Erupter, Jalepeno, Single) it's just important how much you spend per MH/s. This is because if you spend to much, the machine may never pay for itself (although the price of bitcoins should continue to rise overtime, which would make mkae the payoff faster.) If you check out ebay, you'll see some of the Block Erupters selling for $50, and those are rated at 333 MH/s. This means you are paying 50/333=$0.15 per MH/s. You want to get this number as low as possible, because it will decrease your payback time. A 30 Gh/s Jalepeno (30000 MH/s) is currenly selling for a little over $1500. 1500/30000=$0.05 per MH/s so at this price, the Jalepeno will pay for itself three times faster than the block erupter. Also, remember that these miners will take a long time to pay for themselves, so use a mining calculator to make sure what you want to buy will be profitable for you in the long run. http://www.bitcoinx.com/profit/

Also do you recommend a mining machine and if yes, which one?
G San (5 years ago)
+howtwos101 Thanks for your reply. Although i am facing one error in my terminal, hw error=1, why is that happening? Also do i leave the terminal on hoping to get some coins?
howtwos101 (5 years ago)
In it's most basic terms, you use your computers processing power to help the bitcoin network process transactions (sending receiving bitcoins), so the bitcoin network pays you for helping depending on how much you contributed. The bitcoins will add up in your account page over time, and will be sent to your bitcoin wallet once they are over the threshold.

Everything works fine but when I'm done I only get a ton of rejected blocks.
howtwos101 (5 years ago)
I made an updated version of this video, because slush no longer allows getwork mining (which this uses without a proxy) my updated video (which is linked at the beginning of this video) shows a much easier method that uses the newer method of stratum mining.
howtwos101 (5 years ago)
What version of OSX are you running? And I just made a video of a much easier way to do Mac bitcoin mining, just check out my channel, it's my newest video.

You need to make the script executable for that user or write the interpreter shell (maybe "sh") in front of it.

On my mac im given the option to select Fps and work size? how does changing the fps affect mining?
howtwos101 (5 years ago)
This really depends on your laptop model and OS version. So post what model you have (such as A1181) and what version of OSX you have (click the apple in the top right and click on about this Mac), and then we can figure it out.

YOUR wrong--- Leopard cannot UPGRADE to Latest Version of JAVA so go to MOOT again- OLD MAC wont work.
howtwos101 (5 years ago)
That's odd, it seems like that laptop should have a Geforce 9400M which should be able to mine pretty easily. Make sure that you have the video card turned on when you are mining. That model may have a dual video card where it shuts the Nvidia off to save power.
durosh (5 years ago)
Hey, so what does this mean?? my model is A1278.. can i mine with this mac? thanks
HotDog2500 (5 years ago)
Yes, but since you actually seem to know a lot, I was missing this one simple bit of knowledge :) By the way, you can do exactly the same on any open-/save-dialog in Mac apps. Pretty handy.
howtwos101 (5 years ago)
I actually didn't know that you could do that, but I will rember that for the future. I always try and make my videos so that anyone can understand them. So unfortunately sometimes that means spending a while explaining some things.
HotDog2500 (5 years ago)
Well, that takes you really long to explain. On Mac, you can simply type "cd " and drag the desired folder inside the Terminal window - that will insert the necessary path. You should've pointed that out. I watched until the middle of the video and found you were still explaining folder paths...

howtwos101 (5 years ago)
First of all it depends on the Mac that you have and the operating system you're using. What is your mac model? It will be on the bottom towards the screen (something like A1181), and what version of the mac operating system is it running?

On a Mac and on Linux you have to type ./DiabloMiner-OSX.sh (because the sh file is an executable)

Thank you. Do you know of any other mining client for mac os x that does support ASIC mining. Should I compile CGminer or BFGminer?
howtwos101 (5 years ago)
I am quite sure that DiabloMiner doesn't support ASIC mining, but I'll look into it.
Kyle Marieb (5 years ago)
Please reply quickly. I recently ordered a Butterfly Labs 5gh/s bitcoin miner. I plan on using it on my mac as it won't take up a lot of electricity while running for a long time. I am having trouble finding a bitcoin mining client on mac os x that supports asic miners. Does DiabloMiner support asics on the mac? If not, will they and is there a mining client that will? Thank you for your consideration.
howtwos101 (5 years ago)
That most likely means you're not running it from the right directory, if you type ls does the diablominer-osx show up?
