GRIN Miners: Please update to the latest mining software to avoid any mining interruption. Try our Auto-Conversion feature to receive payouts in BTC or ETH!

How To Start Mining

Step 1: Download Mining Software

We recommend using either Bminer (Nvidia), Minerbabe (AMD/Nvidia), or GrinPro (AMD/Nvidia).

Step 2: Edit Configuration File

There should be a config file included with the mining software (e.g. mine_grin.sh, config.xml). Update miner login with your email address, password is ignored. Once you start mining, you should receive an email with your payout password.
Do not use an email address you don't own, or one that is not secured by 2FA.

Sample configurations:

#!/bin/sh
# Change the following USERNAME to your USERNAME.
ADDRESS=USERNAME
USERNAME=$ADDRESS.RIG_NAME
POOL=mine.thegrinpool.com:4747
SCHEME=cuckaroo29d
PWD=x
./bminer -uri $SCHEME://$USERNAME:$PWD@$POOL -api 127.0.0.1:1880
