1. Install Ubuntu server and Bismuth Node/Wallet.

sudo apt-get install python-twisted
sudo apt-get install python-pip
sudo apt-get install python-pip --fix-missing
sudo apt-get install python-socks
sudo apt-get install unzip

4. Download miner zip file

wget "https://www.dropbox.com/s/ih9il49vu9yw7n9/Minerv2.zip?dl=0"

5. Unzip Miner file

unzip Minerv2.zip?dl=0

6. CD into miner file

cd Miner

7. Create text file to use for launching miner

touch startminer.bash

8. Edit startminer.bash for your address, worker name and threads

nano startminer.bash

startminer.bash default text

./miner fd3b75f8bc6d1c76f5cf9b080fead0ea627cfb1c80de057d335e805a rig1    
    ^                              $                              &

Here is an updated guide to mine bismuth on https://bismuth.acc-pool.pw

I recommend using google or digital ocean for CPU mining. You should get around 300k-500k h/s per Core. Price per core can vary between 0,01 cent and 0,029 cent/hour.

  1. Fire up a CPU optimized droplet

  2. Install ubuntu

  3. Install dependencies

    • sudo apt-get install python-twisted
    • sudo apt-get install python-pip
    • sudo apt-get install python-pip --fix-missing
    • sudo apt-get install python-socks
    • sudo apt-get install unzip
  4. Download miner zip file

wget "https://www.dropbox.com/s/reeg9btnylndwrj/MinerV3.zip?dl=0"

  1. Unzip Miner file

    • unzip MinerV3.zip?dl=0
  2. CD into miner file

    • cd MinerV3
  3. Create text file to use for launching miner

    • touch startminer.bash
  4. Edit startminer.bash for your address, worker name and threads

    • nano startminer.bash

startminer.bash default text example to put in startminer.bash file

./miner bismuthaddress rigname

Replace bismuthaddress with your address (see 11.)

  1. chmod files to be executable

    • chmod +x startminer.bash
    • chmod +x miner

9 1/2.

  • tmux ( If not installed run * sudo apt-get install tmux )

Then run:

./startminer.bash

Then press ctr + b + d. You can then close the SSH session and the miner will keep running.

On reconnect to reopen to terminal window with the miner running use this command.

  • tmux attach
  1. start miner using the startminer.bash file (If you used tmux for vps then no need to do this command again. Ignore 9 1/2 if installing to mine on a local machine)
  • ./startminer.bash
  1. Link for node and wallet https://github.com/hclivess/Bismuth/releases/ or use the online wallet made by euroline https://biswallet.acc-pool.pw

maybe a super noob question, but what would be the rigname (rig1?) where can I find it or generate one?
