How To Mine Ethereum using the CPU - For LinuxsteemCreated with Sketch.

in ethereum •  3 years ago 

In this post I will show you how to mine ethereum using the CPU of your linux computer using a software called ethminer.

  • We are using Ubuntu server version 16. (64 bits)
  • A processor with AES support will mine more ethereum.
  • We are using the MINERGATE minig pool
  • Minergate will charge you a small percentage of your mining profits, something like 1.5%


First, you will need to create an account at MINERGATE


Use the following commands to install the ethminer software on your linux computer.

# apt-get update
# apt-get install software-properties-common
# add-apt-repository ppa:ethereum/ethereum
# apt-get update
# apt-get install ethminer


In order to start mining ethereum, use the following command:

# ethminer -C -F[email protected] --disable-submit-hashrate


In our YOUTUBE channel, we offer a video showing you the step by step procedure.
