How to mine DogeCoin and other crypto with your laptop (CPU mining on Mac/PC/Linux)

What you need to mine Crypto curencies ?

To mine crypto currencies, you need 3 things:

  • A mining application or script
  • A mining pool
  • A wallet to store your coins

Mining any crypto with Unmineable pool

Unmineable pool allows to mine many cryptocurrencies, even those that are not mineable (“unmineable”). You can for example mine aave, yearn.finance, wink, ATOM, BAT. You can find the complete list of supported currencies here.

Dogecoin mining

1. Install your wallet and generate a receiver address

For DogeCoin, I am using the officiel wallet that I found on DogeCoin site. But I am not sure if it is secure because it did not ask me to add a password like other wallets. So I recommend that you use a more secured wallet.

  • Install the wallet from DogeCoin site
  • Generate a reception adress (“File” > “Much receiving adresses”)
  • Copy the address
DogeCoin core application

2. Install the mining tool

I am using xmrig which is a CPU miner that we can launch with command lines.

xmrig download page
  • Extract the archive to a local folder on your laptop
  • Modify the configuration file as decribed below
  • algo”: “rx/0
  • url”: “ethash.unmineable.com:3333
  • user”: “DOGE:Adresse#kiiz-tiwr” // (kiiz-tiwr is my referral code and is optional)
config.json

3. Mining pool

I tried many pools and I think that Unmineable* is the best so far:

  • It is simple to use
  • Unmineable fees is 1% (like most of pools)
  • You can reduce this fees to 0.75% if you use a referral code (you can use my code: kiiz-tiwr) or by using my referral link
  • Payout minimum is 30 doges on Unmineable

4. Start mining

That’s all, all you need now is to launch xmrig and observe it working
