  • In the search form type “pasc” and it will instantly show you PascalCoin, then click on “deposit” and the wallet key will be generated, save it for later.
  • The click on Deposit Address to generate one, save it for later
Preparing Mining Pools
  • As always for Ethereum i will be using https://ethermine.org/ (no account registration is required)
  • For PascalCoin i will use https://pasc.suprnova.cc/, create an account with suprnova if you don’t have one yet/
  • Once logged in, go to “Edit Account” and fill it up with your details, also don’t forget to add the wallet key there and to set
  • Then go to “My Account” -> “My Workers” and create one
Claymore Miner Configuration
  • Download Claymore’s Miner v8.0 https://mega.nz/#F!O4YA2JgD!n2b4iSHQDruEsYUvTQP5_w
  • Once downloaded, extract the files from archive
  • Right click on “start.bat” file and then click “Edit
  • Replace everything with the following code: EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethermine.org:4444 -ewal WALLET_KEY.RIG_NAME -epsw x -dpool stratum+tcp://pasc.suprnova.cc:5279 -dwal SUPRNOVA_USERNAME.SUPRNOVA_WORKER_NAME -dpsw SUPRNOVA_PASSWORD -dcoin pasc -dcri 10
  • Replace wallet key, rig name, username and password with yours
  • Save as” .bat file and give it a name like ETH+PASC.bat
  • Run the .bat file and the miner process with start.

That’s it, you are now mining Ethereum and Pascal at the same time with Claymore’s Dual Miner

    HI,
    Can you tell me the Core clock and Memory clock values?

    I am getting 26MH for RX480 on
    Core clock = 1100
    Memory Clock = 2200
    ETH mode only.
    What are your values for dual?

  • Hi, send me the ROM pelase!

    • mr.ga

      i already send email to you
      let check it

  • dronnick

    I get only 13.9 Mh/s ETH speed on R9 280x. Is this a speed to expect on this GPU?

    • i think you should get a bit more than that, have you increased/decreased dcri ?

      • dronnick

        Yes, i tried to change dcri a little. But got only 14.05. How far can i change dcri?

        It seems to be, this is OK speed for an R9 280X now. Last year it was 20, but now something seems to be changed.

    hi

    what is the SUPRNOVA_PASSWORD? is it the worker password or password to the suepernova account?

    • Yes, is the worker password ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Darren Yu

        thank u for ur fast response. also how long should it take for me to receive something in myetherwallet? ive been mining for about 2 hours now and still nothing. also how come the PASC at supernova doesnt show any MH for the Global hash?

        • I think they disabled their pool for pascal, you should use nanopool instead!

  • Adon

    Hello,

    Can I use Claymore to solo mine ETH and pool mine PASC at the same time

  • Dan

    site https://pasc.suprnova.cc/ closed down, use this site instead https://pasl.suprnova.cc ?

    • pasl is for pascal lite, try nanopool for pascal.

  • Dan

    What do I put for rig_name? from this command -ewal WALLET_KEY.RIG_NAME ??
    Can you just put ETH wallet address?

  • Mark

    sorry for what might be a dull noob question but have tried to find the answer and failing…
    the readme says to install catalyst (crimson?) 15.2 but this is very old now. i can find it but to install it requires fglrx dependencies that are obsolete and can’t be found. could anyone help me understand if i need 15.2 (most recent for rx580 is 17.x) and how to install such an old driver? very grateful indeed.

    • No, that is for something else, for 500s use latest drivers ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Mark

        Thanks!

  • Christian Ulirsch

    I seem to be having issues with my drivers. For a 7 GPU rig with ASUS Rx480 8 Gb cards, what version of claymore and drivers should I try. I have used claymore v9.3 and drivers 16.6.2, 16.9.1 and 16.9.2

  • Vinรญcius Alves

    Can you mine DGB with this?

  • Kyonkanno

    Is this more profitable than mining a single coin at a time? I’d guess that dual mining would split your Hashrates between the different coins, right? Please forgive my ignorance.

    For example if I hash at 30 Mh/s only on ethereum, If I used this dual mining would my hashrate fall?

    • Hi, the hashrate will not split, you will have the same hashrate for ethereum or better.

  • Kyonkanno

    Hey, suprnova isn’t accepting new users. When my miner tries to connect, it fails. So I’m using nanopool instead. However I can’t see my worker on the nanopool page, When I type in my address it can’t find it. How long should I wait?

    • Usually 10-15 minutes.

    • disqus_Iz41ErkoTh

      Use Coinotron for Pascal.

  • Daniel Slabodar

    Hi, how to mine etheteum with nanopool and pascal solo with claymore? I’m missing command line option to mine solo with claymore miner
