Getting Started Guide

1. Create a Verium address to receive payments.

  • Downloading the client & block chain: Download the Verium client from here.

    Generate a new address and input it on your account page to receive payments.

2. Create account.

  • Register here, or login if you already have account
  • Create a worker that will be used by the miner to login

3. Download a miner.

4. Configure your miner.

    If your using Linux, Then type the following into the console:

  • cpuminer-opt
  • ./cpuminer-opt -a scrypt:1048576 -o stratum+tcp://vrm.poolium.win:3333 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword
  • VeriumMiner
  • ./cpuminer -o stratum+tcp://vrm.poolium.win:3333 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

    If your using Linux, you can write a simple script to loop through multiple mining pools in case the prefered mining pool goes down, so you never lose out on VRM. You must have an account created on each mining pool added to the script.

  • Script
  • #!/bin/bash
    OPTIONS="--retries=3 --user=Weblogin.WorkerName --pass=WorkerPassword"
    while :
    do
        ./cpuminer $OPTIONS -n 1048576  -o stratum+tcp://vrm.poolium.win:3333
        ./cpuminer $OPTIONS -n 1048576  -o stratum+tcp://us.vrm.mining-pool.ovh:3033
    done
          

    If you want to mine on a Windows Operating System, then you'll need to create a batch file to start your miner.

    Simply open notepad and then copy and paste the following:

  • cpuminer-opt
  • cpuminer-aes-sse42.exe -a scrypt:1048576 -o stratum+tcp://vrm.poolium.win:3333 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword
  • VeriumMiner
  • cpuminer -o stratum+tcp://vrm.poolium.win:3333 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

    You then need to change "-u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password" to reflect your own account. Eg, "-u Steve.StevesWorker -p StevesWorkerPassword" then go to "File > Save as" and save the file as "RunMe.bat" in the same folder containing your miners application files. You are now ready to mine, double click on "RunMe.bat" to start mining. If you want, you can create additional workers with usernames and passwords of your choice here
