how to mine bytecoin (bcn): complete beginners guide

how to mine bytecoin (bcn): complete beginners guide

Bytecoin is the original cryptonight coin. We tend to think of this as Monero, since it is the most popular, but Bytecoin actually was released much sooner than Monero. Bytecoin is interesting because it has an enormous total supply at 184,470,000,000 coins.

So before we start this tutorial, I have two tips for making the most out of your mining experience. First make sure you have the latest drivers for your GPUs. Secondly, most mining software will get flagged as a virus from virus scanners. Because of this, if your mining on your normal everyday use or gaming computer that has an antivirus installed, you will want to exclude the mining software from the antivirus. What I like to do, is I make one folder and then put all of my mining software in sub folders. I then exclude the top level folder from the antivirus and that excludes all the mining software.

The first thing we need is a mining pool. You can solo mine, but the payouts could take months depending on how powerful your mining rig is, and the mining pools usually charge a very small fee (1% or less). Using a pool will allow you to receive consistent payouts, multiple times per day.

For the CPU, GPU Nvidia and GPU AMD tutorials, we will be using xmr-stak. It is open source, the most customizable, and allows you to mine using a mix of Nvidia and AMD GPUs as well as your CPU, all from one window. It is also available for Windows and Linux.

You can download xmr-stak at https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak/releases The latest version is 2.4.3, which is what we will be using in this tutorial. If you need to use Linux, you will have to download the source code and build the software. This tutorial will not be focusing on how to build xmr-stak from source.

The first time you run xmr-stak you will have to configure it a little bit. We will cover the initial configuration here, and then you can read about how to configure the miner in the section that pertains to you (CPU, GPU Nvidia and GPU AMD)

Type in a port you want to use the remote monitoring on. Usually 8000 or 3000 are available on most home computer networks. Later, to monitor your mining computers, you can type the ip address and port you choose of your mining computer, into a web browser on any other device connected to your network, to view your total speed and other detailed reports.

Pool Address This is the address and port of the pool you want to mine on. For example, I typed in either us.bytecoin-pool.org:3333, eu.bytecoin-pool.org:3333, asia.bytecoin-pool.org:3333 or ru.bytecoin-pool.org:3333

At this point the software should start mining. Wait until it says logged into mining_pool:port, and then close the mining software. If you look in the folder where the miner is stored, it should have made text files for your CPU and your graphics card (Nvidia or AMD). They would be named cpu.txt, nvidia.txt, amd.txt. It will also make a config.txt and a pools.txt. In the next sections we will show how to edit the txt files for each mining component, as well as how to disable a certain GPU brand or CPU from mining.

If you ever want to change servers, you would edit the pool_address. To change wallets you edit the wallet_address. Leave the rig_id blank. Change the pool_password depending on your pools configuration.

At the very bottom, you have currency. You have to tell XMR-Stak what currency it is your mining. They support most of the Cryptonight coins, so you can just type the name of the coin, from the list in the txt file. If the coin you want to mine is not on the list, you need to know what algorithm it uses, and use the algorithm name for the currency. If their is a whattomine calculator for your coin, then usually whattomine list the algorithm, otherwise you can probably find the information on the coins website.

As far as CPU mining, the Cryptonight algorithm is the most profitable algorithm to use a CPU on. For mining with the CPU, we have the option of using xmr-stak or xmrig. xmr-stak only has precompiled binaries for Windows, while xmrig has them for Windows and Linux. They both have the source code, so you can compile them yourself to work with Linux if you need to.

I found that at least for the CPU, the program usually generates the best possible configuration settings automatically. The comments in the cpu.txt do a great job of explaining each setting, and how you could try to get more performance out of your machine.

noCPU This will disable the CPU from mining. noNVIDIA This will disable all Nvidia GPUs in your system from mining. noAMD This will disable all AMD GPUs in your system from mining.

As far as GPU mining using Nvidia GPUs, we have the option of using xmr-stak or xmrig. xmr-stak only has precompiled binaries for Windows, while xmrig has them for Windows and Linux. They both have the source code, so you can compile them yourself to work with Linux if you need to.

I found that for the GPU, you can tweak the settings to get a little more performance, but generally the program usually generates the best possible configuration settings automatically. The comments in the nvidia.txt do a great job of explaining each setting, and how you could try to get more performance out of your machine.

noCPU This will disable the CPU from mining. noNVIDIA This will disable all Nvidia GPUs in your system from mining. noAMD This will disable all AMD GPUs in your system from mining.

I found that for the GPU, you can tweak the settings to get a little more performance, but generally the program usually generates the best possible configuration settings automatically. For my Vega system, I had to add double threads per GPU. The comments in the amd.txt do a great job of explaining each setting, and how you could try to get more performance out of your machine.

noCPU This will disable the CPU from mining. noNVIDIA This will disable all Nvidia GPUs in your system from mining. noAMD This will disable all AMD GPUs in your system from mining.

If there are problems, you may not have enough virtual memory. You may need 16GB of virtual memory (for Vega GPUs you need more like 16GB per GPU) to change this go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> System and the click Advanced system settings on the left. From there, click settings under the advanced tab. Next click change, and then on the third screen, uncheck automatically manage, choose custom size, and type in the size (in MB) for both text boxes. Then press the set button, and then the ok button.

One thing to monitor for is stale or rejected shares. If you see a lot of stale shares, you may want to try a server that is closer to you. If you see a lot of rejected shares, try to lower the intensity of the miner if available.

To figure this out, you would go to http://whattomine.com and use their calculator. They have calculators for most of the coins that are available to mine. In this case, the Bytecoin calculator is located at https://whattomine.com/coins/103-bcn-cryptonight The calculator does provide a rough estimate, so you may get paid a higher or lower amount than what the calculator actually says.

Hash rate: Enter your total speed (in hashes per second) for all of your mining computers. This would be the total speed value in your mining software. I would use the 15 minute total speed, since this would be a better average total speed. Make sure to add up all of the computers your using for Bytecoin mining.

Power: Enter the total amount of power (in watts) that your mining rig is using. Some mining software will measure this for you. You can also measure total power consumption for your computer using special software, or a kilowatt meter. I prefer using a kilowatt meter, because I find it to be the most accurate. Make sure to add up all of the computers your using for Bytecoin mining.

In this image, we can quickly see how many coins and USD value we will make in certain time frames. You want to look at the Profit column, since this is the value after paying for your electricity usage. I usually just focus on the daily payout in USD. By just focusing on this number, you can run the calculator for a few different coins, and quickly see which coin is most profitable for your mining rig setup. Keep in mind you also want to weigh the daily payout with the market cap. A low market cap coin may be really profitable one day, and then could have half the payout tomorrow.

Note you cant mine all cryptonight coins with an ASIC, just the ones that did not fork. Bytecoin is one of them but their is only a few of them that did not fork, most did so the ASIC will not work with them.

Monero-Classic is Monero original chain retained after Monero team initiated hard fork at block height 1546000 to be anti-ASIC. Monero-Classic is based on CryptoNote protocol and retains all parameters and features of the original Monero chain.

It uses the same Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm, but, compared to its mother-coin, Monero-Classic is ASIC-friendly, so when most of CryptoNight coins goes against, you still can use your CryptoNight-aimed equipment to mine Monero-Classic (XMC). It can also be mined not only with ASICs but also with GPU and CPU, so a decent home PC is enough to start mining Monero-Classic.

We believe the emergence of specialized mining machines for a cryptocurrency is a normal market economy phenomenon and it could greatly improve network security. With specialized mining machines, the events like "Monero was attacked by more than 500,000 botnets" could be avoided. On the opposite, frequent algorithm change creates more centralization.

Always do your own research! Try to analyse the exchanges data, and possibility that you can actually sell mined coins. Some coins might be very high in the ranks, but with zero buy orders and very small trading volume.
