Dogecoin Mining Software
To mine Doge (or other cryptocurrencies), your computer basically does hard math and is rewarded with coins. A more detailed explanation of what is going on can be found here. You will have upfront hardware costs and electricity costs but the mining process is free.
- Cgminer is the best mining software for all scrypt based currencies, including Dogecoin. You’ll want to download version 3.7.2 as it is the last version that supports Scrypt mining. Here’s a direct link to the download page. Since cgminer uses a command-line-interface (CLI), you will want to create a .bat file or .conf file with the configurations for your cards. A ‘batch file’ as it is called is the simplest to setup. Simply open Notepad or another text editor and change the .txt in the file extension to .bat. Right click on the .bat file and select ‘edit. You can then edit your settings to look something like this:
cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://poolurl:xxxx -u xxx -p x -I 20 --thread-concurrency 21712
- CUDAminer NVidia Best for mining with Nvidia graphic cards
- CPUminer CPU Best for mining with CPUs. However, CPU mining in general is not effective.
