A Beginner's Guide to Mining Memorycoin

A Beginner's Guide to Mining Memorycoin

Learn to mine Memorycoin easily

1. Find out what type of CPU you have.
To increase the amount of hash power and profit you make, download a free application called Speccy. It will indicate what exactly kind of hardware you are running on your PC.
Quick Tip: You can optimize mining performance ten-fold with a 64-bit system. If you are running Windows, you can check which kind of operating system you have by right clicking 'My Computer' and left clicking 'Properties'. Your system type should be displayed as 32-bit or 64-bit.

AMD Processors have very different names for their corresponding YAM miner. You can either use the generic build of YAM or take your time to find the best version of YAM that will work with your processor, otherwise please post in the Support & Help section if you can't figure it out.
You cannot achieve adequate performance if you have an old CPU without AES-NI or are running a 32-bit system.

What is AES-NI?
Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions is designed to improve speed with applications using Encryption and Decryption technologies using AES. Memorycoin's algorithm depends on this AES-NI technology to speed up hashing rates significantly. The AES-NI specification of Memorycoin also prevents GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) to overwhelm CPU mining. See if your CPU provides this technology by looking up your model over the internet.


2. Download the Memorycoin Wallet

The wallet can be found at this thread.
You can then synchronize your PC to the rest of the Memorycoin Network and have a receiving address for which you can receive payments.

  • Open the client. Wait for the client to synchronize to the latest block.
  • The client uses port 1968 and may require firewall permissions
  • Retrieve your receiving address under the receive tab.
  • This will be used as your mining address when mining MMC.

3. Download your Miner

64-Bit (Windows, Linux, OSX)
Download YAM
YAM

32-bit (Windows, Linux)
Download mmcminer
Glitchman's MMC CPU Miner




4. Configure your Miner
Read the documentation provided for the according miner.
This is tricky if you are a novice to what these need to be, such as threads, memory size
(YAM), and AV algorithm (YAM).

  • Threads
How many threads or CPU cores you would like to utilize. You're okay with using CPU cores = Threads, and prioritizing the process to idle.

  • Memory Size
This is a YAM specific variable, the more RAM you have available the better. I usually leave around 3GB for my normal desktop use for good practice.

  • AV Algorithm
This is also YAM specific, but using AV=0 will automatically find the fastest rates with the configuration and setup that you currently have.


4. Find a Pool
You may find pools to join at this board


5. Launch your Miner
Once your pool finds a block, you should see a deposit of MMC into your wallet.




Enjoy Mining MMC!

I think the 32-bit (Windows, Linux) is only for 64 bit and not for 64.

Oops, yeah it's hard to find a 32-bit miner.
Anyone know of one other than solo mining??

yes, i use this http://www.mmcwiki.com/mmcminer_install_windows32_mmcpool in my 32bit computers.

I've updated the original post and the Glitchman miner's thread.

Thanks for letting me know that there's a precompiled 32-bit version for Windows.
