SHA256 Guide

Getting Started with SHA256 mining on Give MeCOINS

Step 1. Set a Wallet address and automatic payout in the Account Details Page. You can do this by going to Settings > Account on the Dashboard. Be sure to have your correct coin selected. You can select different coins by going to the top right hand of your Dashboard and clicking on “Coin Selection”

Step 2. You may also set the site to display information in your countrys time and date from the Account Details section of the site. You can do this by going to Settings > Account > Other Settings on the Dashboard

Step 3. Create a worker for each coin you are mining. You can do this by going to Settings > Workers.

NOTE: Ensure that the site is on the correct coin before creating workers they do not sync across all pools. There is a limit of 20 workers per pool

Step 4. Pick your mining software from the Miners page on the left of the Sidebar. Here are our recommended clients:

1. Cgminer
2. BFGMiner

Step 5. Configuring your miner for BTC mining is very simple all you need to do is specify the mining url and your worker details.

NOTE: please set all servers in your config so you can failover to one of our other servers if for any reason there is some downtime. this guide can also be used for all SHA256 coins as they use the same config
