In this guide, we will show you how to start mining ETH with Claymore ETH miner.
Open address editor and save the the pool and the wallet for mining ETH. In this case, we will save ETH pool under (POOL: ETH) tag and ETH wallet under (WALLET: ETH) tag.
Open worker's config and select CLAYMORE-ETH as a default mining client.
Update the mining client's configuration so that it will be defined as:
-eworker (WORKER) -epool (POOL: ETH) -ewal (WALLET: ETH) -epsw x -mode (MODE: SINGLE) -asm 1 -allpools 1 -allcoins 1 -eres 0 -wd 1 -esm (AUTO)
(WORKER) tag will be automatically replaced with your worker's name, so you don't have to change it. (MODE: SINGLE) means that the dual mode is off. If you would like to switch to dual coin mining, you can click on this tag in worker's config and replace it with (MODE: DUAL). Claymore ETH miner allows you Ethash mining along with Decred, Siacoin, Lbry, Pascal, Blake (2s), and Keccak.
Save changes and wait for mining client to restart. You are now mining ETH with Claymore Ethereum miner.
