With the latest release of Claymore’s Dual Miner v8.0, besides the improvements and adjustments, there also was a new feature added which is Ethereum + PascalCoin mining. If you missed my article about the update you can check it here.
Here is the official thread of Claymore’s Dual Ethereum AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner v8.0 (Windows/Linux) where you can read more about it: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1433925.0
For this tutorial i am using the following configuration:
Here is how you can mine Ethereum and Pascal at the same time with Claymore’s Dual Mininer:
Create PascalCoin Wallet Key
- First of all, create an account with https://poloniex.com/
- When logged in, go to “BALANCES” -> “DEPOSITS & WITHDRAWALS“
- 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
