Claymore’s Dual Miner – Ethereum & Ethereum Classic Dual Mining DCR,SIA,LBRY,PASC

Ledger Wallet protects your bitcoins

Few days ago i was showing you how to mine Ethereum Classic (ETC) and what miner to use, also my recommendation was Claymore’s Dual Miner.. you may ask “why claymore? it has developer fees etc”.. well.. like no other miner Claymore’s miner has the dual mining feature and the fees are very minimal 1% .. basically you can mine two coins at the same time. For example you can mine Ethereum (ETH) or Ethereum Classic (ETC) and Decred (DCR), Siacoin (SC), LBRY Credits (LBC) or (new added) PascalCoin (PASC) at the same time without altering ETH / ETC hashing speed at all.. with just a little more power usage you can earn even more, but there will be another 1% dev fees for using the dual mining feature.

So we have

#1 Claymore dev fees of 2% and

#2 mining pool fees 1%, a total of 3% in fees.

Not much 🙂

In this tutorial i will show you how to mine Ethereum / Ethereum Classic and Decred, Siacoin, LBRY Credits or the newly added PascalCoin with Claymore’s Dual Miner!

 

How much can i earn with the dual miner?

With Claymore’s Dual Miner you can mine Decred (DCR), Siacoin (SC), Lybr (LBC) as secondary altcoin. Let’s say you have a RX 470 4gb rig and your hashing speed for Ethereum and Ethereum Classic is 22.xx Mh/s per card at stock settings, then the hashing speed for the other three coins will be

  • Decred: 321 Mh/s* (x6 1,926 Mh/s)
  • Siacoin: 390 Mh/s* (x6 2,340 Mh/s)
  • Lbry Credits: 30 Mh/s* (x6 180 Mh/s)
  • PascalCoin: 145.6 Mh/s* (x6 870 Mh/s)

*Note that this numbers are reports from different users, soon i will test myself the hashing speed with rx 470 4gb and the numbers will be updated

Before to get started with the tutorial showing you how to mine Decred, Siacoin or LBRY Credits as secondary coin along with Ethereum and Ethereum Classic using Claymore’s Dual Miner, make sure you have the best hardware for your mining rig, if you don’t have one yet and you plan to build one, here is the best configuration

MoBo – $200 ASRock H97 Anniversary or $160 ASRock H81 PRO BTC

RAM – $65 HyperX 8GB

CPU – $75 Intel G3258 4 Pentium 3.20

SSD – $55 Kingston 120GB SSDNow

Risers – $50 6-Pack PCI-E 16x to 1x Powered Riser

PSU – $235 EVGA 1200W 80 Plus Platinum

6x GPUs- $1,200 Sapphire Nitro+ RX 470 4GB

Frame – $190 GPU Mining Rig Open Air Frame Case or do it yourself, tutorial here!

 

Ethereum & Ethereum Classic hashing speed using 6x Sapphire Nitro+ RX 470 4GB can be up to 170Mh/s.

UPDATE FEBRUARY 23, 2017 for 1x Sapphire Nitro+ OC RX 470 4GB (Samsung Memory) : stock 22.xx Mh/s, modded bios 24.5xx Mh/s, overclocked and downvolted 70w-80w 29.xxx Mh/s. 6x rig 175 Mh/s

Now that we have cleared this aspects, let’s start with the mining. For this tutorial i will use the following specs:

Note that my hashing speed will be very low

Before to continue further, please share this 🙂 thanks!

 

Let’s get started!

 

A) How to mine Ethereum (ETH) or Ethereum Classic (ETC)
1 How to mine Ethereum (ETH)

First of all we will have to create the standard files for mining Ethereum or Ethereum Classic only, after that will add the codes for dual mining options.

Mining Ethereum (ETH) only configuration:

  • Extract the files from archive (if you did not downloaded the miner yet, click here)
  • I am going to use https://ethermine.org/ pool for Ethereum
  • Create a “New Text Document” inside the extracted folder and paste the following code: EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethermine.org:4444 -ewal <Your_Ethereum_Address>.<RigName> -epsw x
  • Replace <Your_Ethereum_Address> with your wallet key, <RigName> with your rig name and also eu1.ethermine.org:4444 if you are not located in EU, go to https://ethermine.org/ home page for full pools list.
  • Save the file as .bat and name something like “ETH.bat“, we are going to add later the Decred code for dual mining, however if you run the bat file it will start mining Ethereum only, so if you want to get going with this only feel free to run it.
2 How to mine Ethereum Classic (ETC)

Mining Ethereum Classic (ETC) only configuration:

  • I will use again ethermine for ETC but this time the url is different, here is the link: https://etc.ethermine.org/
  • Create again a “New text document” inside the mining software folder and paste the following code: EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1-etc.ethermine.org:4444 -ewal <Your_Ethereum_Address>.<RigName> -epsw x
  • Replace <Your_Ethereum_Address> with your wallet key, <RigName> with your rig name and also eu1-etc.ethermine.org:4444 if you are not located in EU, go to https://etc.ethermine.org/ home page for full pools list.
  • Save the document as .bat and name it ETC.bat
  • Run it if you want to mine Ethereum Classic (ETC) only

Now that we have your mining files ready, let start to setup the dual mining feature for each.

B) Ethereum (ETH) & Ethereum Classic (ETC) dual mining Decred (DCR)
1 Preparing Decred Wallet and Mining Pool

2 How to mine Ethereum (ETH) or Ethereum Classic (ETC) and Decred (DCR)

  • Go to Claymore’s Dual Ethereum+Decred_Siacoin_Lbry AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v7.4 folder, then copy the ETH.bat/ETC.bat file and paste it in the same folder, the system will automatically create a copy of the file that we created earlier, something like ETH – Copy.bat/ETC – Copy.bat.
  • Rename ETH – Copy.bat/ETC – Copy.bat to something like ETH+DCR.bat/ETC+DCR.bat
  • Right click on ETH+DCR.bat/ETC+DCR.bat, and click “Edit
  • Right after -epsw x, paste the following code -dpool stratum+tcp://dcr.suprnova.cc:2252 -dwal USERNAME.WORKER -dpsw PASSWORD
  • For username, worker and password use the details from suprnova account.
  • The final code for ETH+DCR should look like this: EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethermine.org:4444 -ewal walletkey.rigname -epsw x -dpool stratum+tcp://dcr.suprnova.cc:2252 -dwal username.worker -dpsw password
  • The final code for ETC+DCR should look like this: EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1-etc.ethermine.org:4444 -ewal walletkey.rigname -epsw x -dpool stratum+tcp://dcr.suprnova.cc:2252 -dwal username.worker -dpsw password
  • All set, run the bat files and it will start mining ETH or ETC and DCR at the same time

Ethereum & Ethereum Classic: 39.xxMh/s – 390w

Ethereum + Decred: 39.xxMh/s + 585Mh/s – 430w

Ethereum Classic + Decred: 39.xxMh/s + 585Mh/s – 440

  • wouter de jong

    Hey very nice tutorial, could you update the siacoin part for me? The siacoin pool is not availible anymore. I got 4x a 470 8G NITRO+. Thanks in advance

  • Martin reyes

    The miner is only seeing one card how can I get it to read the two? I’m using windows 10

    • in device manager are both cards installed ?

      • Martin reyes

        No I’m sure it’s one

        • maybe is something to do with the motherboards.. maybe some bios modification will fix it

          • Martin reyes

            I went through the bios and the pci are enabled idk where else to configure unless I’m obviously doing something wrong

          • Kürşat Konak

            Can you tell me your board and gpu?, i am pretty sure either one of your riser is broken, or you are using wrong pci-ex slots. You cant put 2 cards randomly in pci slots, one has to go to x16 slot other to x1 slot check your via switching their places on board, if risers work then try to put one riser onto x16 (to the one closest to cpu) and other to an x1 next to that

            Gpu sapphire nitro rx 470 oc motherboard z97 anniversary asrock

          • Martin reyes

            I was using ethos and had two showing. But ciprian recommends windows 10, so I finally got to it so plus I wanted to dual mine.

          • Kürşat Konak

            did you check your risers? I checked out your boards layout, you should put your GPUs to GEN1. Go To Advanced>Chipset Configuration>PCIE2 Link Speed set it to GEN1.
            Disable “AdvancedTrusted ComputingSecurity Device Support” if its enabled. There are what i would do first anyway.im pretty sure i saw in forums on how to setup z97 anniversary board. It shouldnt be hard at all to install 2 GPus though, even crappy boards under 50$ support 4GPUs directly just by installing them on board lol.

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/40d2f54090003a0c4ad55461db36c59192eae0830c17bd62decc66baa4ccf889.png

          • Martin reyes

            Yup I have done that and the layout the same.

          • Kürşat Konak

            @Baseball5coach:disqus you can use any RX 500 series together, be it sapphire, msi, gigabyte. But it will be a headache, because you will have to set up their clocks, voltages one by one in Claymore config file 🙂 I have mixed RX570 ITX, RX580 and R9 290x OC together they worked lol. (R9 290x just a power hungry beast barely good enough for mining)

          • Martin reyes

            Thanks for your assistance I was able to get it. Another question, would I be able to use different AmD type of gpu’s with the sapphire gpu I have. I ask cause I can’t find the sapphire gpu anywhere now and I will have different gpu on one rig.
            I just know I can’t mix nvida w/ Amd?

          • Thank you again @kratkonak:disqus for answering to their questions, i was and still am busy :/ @Baseball5coach:disqus

          • Kürşat Konak

            @ciprianpt:disqus i am just giving back to the community what i learned from you mate, you’re welcome 🙂

          • thanks man! 😀

          • Kürşat Konak

            Are they both on board or are you using risers? If risers, i would try to put them on board first and see what happens. If they are on board, try to remove drivers using DDU in safe mode. Shut down. Plug HDMI onto one of the GPUs start the rig. Then install their drivers, this kinda thing happened to me once when i was having both GPUs on board, solved this way.

          • Martin reyes

            I have them both on risers and only one shows up. But I will try and put them both on the board

  • Henrik Andersen

    I cannot connect to the sia coin via stratum. I get this:
    SC: Stratum – Cannot connect to sia.suprnova.cc:2786

    • make sure you check pool recommendation, if not try nanopool.

      • Henrik Andersen

        Thanks! Went to nanopool and its working perfectly now. Although if I leave the computer alone for a few hours, it will drop the hashrate. GPU clock will drop from 1200 to 300 on my RX480. If i restart the miner, it’s back to normal…

  • Jesus Travaglini

    when I run ETH + DCR the pc crash and restart :'(

  • Umar Nazar

    Can I just check, I am mining with 5 x rx 480 8gb ETH+SC
    I am getting 27Mh/s (ETH per card) and 590Mh/S (SC per card).
    It is taking around 900w off my wall.
    These are with modded bios 1750 to 2000 strap and Trixx setting as 1160 and 2000 memory clock with -97mV.
    Do you think this is the best I would be able to get from my mining rig or can I do better electricity or hash wise.
    Comment appreciated.

    • hi, you can increase memory up to 2150 with 1130 gpu clock.. also if using trixx try undervolting more gpu clock like -150/175 mV , also what dcri?

      • Umar Nazar

        Hi,
        My trixx undervolting is around -97mV, not sure how much low can I go with dual mining.
        my dcri is at 23 atm.
        I will try your memory and gpu clock suggestion and get back to you.
        Do you think 1500 strap is better or shall I leave it as it is?

        • For 480 8GB the 1750 is the best.. start with default dcri which is 30 and slowly decrease it and watch for differences..
