Getting Started Guide

1. Create account.

  • Register here, or login if you already have account. If you have already registered an account with us for another coin, you do not need to register again.
  • Create a worker that will be used by the miner to login. You may use the same worker for different coins. Please use a different worker for each instance of the mining application or you may experience issues.

2. Download a miner.

3. Configure your miner.

    If your using Linux, Then type the following into the console:

  • CGMiner
  • ./cgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.becausepool.com:3334 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword
  • BFGMiner
  • ./bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.becausepool.com:3334 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

    If you want to mine on a Windows Operating System, then you'll need to create a batch file to start your miner.

    Simply open notepad and then copy and paste the following:

  • CGMiner
  • cgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.becausepool.com:3334 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword
  • BFGMiner
  • bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://stratum.becausepool.com:3334 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword
  • MinerD
  • minerd -a -t 6 -s 4 -o stratum+tcp://stratum.becausepool.com:3334 -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword

    You then need to change "-u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password" to reflect your own account. Eg, "-u Steve.StevesWorker -p StevesWorkerPassword" 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
