Getting Started Guide

1. Create account.

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

2. Download a miner.

3. Configure your miner.

    ! If you're from The United States, Canada or Asia, please use us.stratum.garlicpool.org instead of eu.stratum.garlicpool.org as the first listed pool in your .bat file for improved preformance !

    If you want to mine on a Windows Operating System and are not using the GUI Miner, then you'll need to create a batch file to start your miner.

    Simply open notepad and then copy and paste the following:

  • SGMiner
  • sgminer --algorithm allium -o stratum+tcp://eu.stratum.garlicpool.org:3333 -u UserName.WorkerName -p x -o stratum+tcp://us.stratum.garlicpool.org -u UserName.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword -p x -I 14
  • CPUMiner
  • cpuminer-aes-sse42 -a allium -o stratum+tcp://eu.stratum.garlicpool.org:3333 -u UserName.WorkerName -p x
  • NVidia CCMiner
  • ccminer --algo="allium" -o stratum+tcp://eu.stratum.garlicpool.org:3333 -u UserName.WorkerName -p x -o stratum+tcp://us.stratum.garlicpool.org -u UserName.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

    You then need to change "-u UserName.WorkerName" to reflect your own account. Eg, "-u Steve.StevesWorker" 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

4. SGMiner tips

  • Don't set intensity too high, I=12 is standard and safest, I=14 is recommended for modern GPUs. Higher intensity pushes your GPU more. Check for hardware errors in CGMiner (HW). HW=0 is good, otherwise lower intensity.
