SmartCash Mining Guide

in #smartcash2 years ago

In opening
With people coming in to Crypto everyday, an introductory guide on mining is not overdue.
In this guide we'll do a step-by-step tutorial on how to mine SmartCash, showcasing all the different kind of miners.

For this guide we'll be using the official SmartCash pools that operate at a 0% fee. Use the pool in - or closest to - your region for the least amount of latency.

If files are absent from your download or after you run the miner, make sure your Anti-virus didn't block them. You may create an exclusion to the mining folder if this happens.

To mine SmartCash you need a SmartCash wallet of some kind as you have to mine to an address. You can find wallets here; .

US pool -

1. Nvidia Mining - CCminer
2. AMD Mining - SGminer
3. Dual Mining (AMD & Nvidia) - Claymore Miner

Nvidia Mining - CCminer
Mining SmartCash on an Nvidia machine is by far the most efficient. The specialized miner designed for Nvidia cards is known as 'CCminer', and has a lot of different forks specializing in different algorithms. Effectiveness will vary based on individual cards, though it will likely not differ too much - experiment a bit to see which miner has the best results for you.

CCminer Alexis ( ) - Older ccminer-fork that specialized in the Keccak (SmartCash) Alghorithm

CCminer Tpruvot ( ) - Allround ccminer. Regularly updated and great effectiveness for most cards. <-- my personal pick

CCminer Klaust ( ) - Great ccminer with support for Keccak.

Setting it up
Now that you've downloaded a miner, let's put it to work. The downloaded miner will have created a folder looking similar or exactly like this:

What we need to do here is right-click any of the existing batch-files*, and change the line to appoint it to a SmartCash pool and to your wallet address. We'll use the US-pool as an example, the pool-address for other pools can be found on their respective sites.
Change the line in the Batch-file to look like this:

ccminer-x64 -a keccak -o stratum+tcp:// -u SMARTCASHADDRESS.WorkerName -p x

Replacing the SMARTCASHADDRESS and WorkerName with your own info.
Now save the file. You may also rename the file to your liking. Now run the batch-file, and you're done!

If your ccminer has a different name than ccminer-x64, fill in that in the batchfile instead


AMD Mining - SGminer

AMD-cards are suckers for memory-intensive algorithms. Keccak (SmartCash) however, is not one of those algorithms. For best profitability for AMD-miners I suggest dual-mining SmartCash together with another coin using Claymore Miner. SmartCash is one of the best coin to dual-mine beside another coin.

That being said, if you do want to solo-mine SmartCash using your AMD Graphics Card, here we go.

SGminer (

Setting it up
After downloading the miner and unzip it, you will see a folder containing the sgminer.exe, and an example batch-file* called 'eth'. Right click the batch-file and press 'edit'.

Replace the contents with the following line linking to the US-mining pool:

sgminer-x64 -k keccak -o stratum+tcp:// -u SMARTCASHADDRESS.WorkerName -p x

For other pool-addresses you can find those on their respective sites. Now fill in the SMARTCASHADDRESS & WorkerName with your info and save the file.

You may rename the file to your liking and run it. Your miner should pop right up!


Claymore Miner
A miner I reckon to be the most popular in the crypto-sphere. Claymore offers the ability to mine two coins at the same time increasing profitability. It's also not discriminating towards AMD or Nvidia - both can use Claymore. The first coin must be Ethereum or a coin mining the same algorithm.

Claymore Miner 11.9 - - Dualmining SmartCash does not work on 11.8, so make sure you have the most recent version.

Setting it up
Once you downloaded the miner you have to find an Ethereum-pool first. We'll use Nanopool in this example. their guide can be found here:

Once you have found a pool and their pool-address for Ethereum as well as SmartCash, it's time to modify an existing batchfile that came with the miner*.
Right click any of the existing batch-files and change the line in there so it corresponds with your info. I'll use the example of Nanopool(ETH) and USmine(Smart) here:

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool -ewal YOUR_ETH_ADDRESS/YOUR_WORKER_NAME/YOUR_EMAIL -dpool stratum+tcp:// -dwal YOURSMARTCASHADDRESS.WorkerName -dpsw x -dcoin keccak -allpools 1

Now you may save the file, and change the filename to your liking. Once you double-click the batch-file the miner should start right up!

*If your miner did NOT come with an example batch-file - you have to create it yourself.
You can do this by creating a text-file/document, insert the line there, and then save it as a batch-file. You do this by selecting the 'all files' file-type, and adding .bat at the end of your filename.
