We have included a short guide to start mining either on our pool or a pool of your choice for each of the following pieces of software. If you would like to join thebitcoinmine you can register here. You must also set up a worker to start mining bitcoin. A worker allows different devices to have their own statistics, or you can set up to mine with all of your devices under just one worker. To set up a worker in triplemining, do the following: After logging into triplemining's site, click the Workers button. On the right side, it says create a Worker name and a worker password. Create a unique name and password for your worker. After doing this, you will set up a miner with Username_Workername (which are case sensitive by the way) and the password that you set for this miner. Some pools format the seperator between them differently, so check with your pool as to how your username and worker name are sepearated. Most use a period or an underscore, so the username field would look like this: Username_Workername (on our pool) or like this: Username.Workername Also on this page is shown the API Key. The API Key is a way for you to copy and paste that particular set of characters into the part of a miner that says API Key, and that miner will show you your current mining statistics. If you need help setting things up, please don't hesitate to contatct us here.GUI Miner Windows
GUIMiner is a graphical interface for mining Bitcoin.Many of the other Bitcoin mining software are presented to the user in a command-line interface. It supports mining on GPU(video cards) from AMD and nvidia, as well as CPU mining, which is becoming obsolete due to the current difficulty. This software supports pooled and solo mining, and has a list of common mining pools integrated into it to make mining on those pools more simple.
Choose "Other" from the dropdown box titled Server. Under the host name, you will type: stratum.triplemining.com and under port you will type: 3334. Under the Username field, enter the username and worker name that you signed up for in the pool such as AccountName_WorkerName. After adding this information to the username box, you must then add the password that you created for that worker in the password field. After setting up this information, you will select your appropriate device to mine with (nvidia cards show up with the name of the video card, AMD cards show up with the codename of the video card). To limit processor usage for other tasks to run, you can lock the processor so that only certain cores are visible to the program. After doing this, you can add some things under "Extra flags:" that will allow you to mine a bit faster: For AMD cards, you can add -v -w128 -f0 and you will see a large jump in your hashing power. For nvidia cards, you can add -v to get a more stable hashing rate. After all this is done, you can then click the start mining button, and start watching the Bitcoins come flying to you through our pool.
50miner is set up so that you only need a user name and password to start mining under the pool of 50BTC. This miner will automatically detect OpenCL devices, and start mining with settings for your hardware. You can also configure this miner to automatically start on a user-defined schedule, such as once, daily, or weekly.
After extracting the zip file, double click on the application (it’s the one with the bitcoin symbol for an icon). After opening the program, there is a small check box that says advanced. Check this box, and you will see options that will allow you to connect to our pool. The User field is going to be yourUsername_yourWorkerName, the password will be the password you created for your worker, the pool will be stratum.triplemining.com, and the port will be 3334. After setting up this part, you can choose the mining program that will run behind the scenes to start mining. After choosing a miner and a device (or several devices) on which to mine, click the start button down at the bottom and you will be mining away.BFGMiner 32-bit version BFGMiner 64-bit version
BFGMiner is a command-line interface miner which supports AMD Radeon GPU’s, nvidia GPU’s, FPGA’s from the following companies: BitForce, Icarus, ModMiner, X6500, and Ztex, and also has support for Butterfly Labs’s ASIC line of devices, as well as Avalon’s ASIC mining rig, with ASICMINER ASIC-based device support to come. This miner also supports the new GetBlockTemplate as well as the Stratum mining protocols. It has low overhead, since it is written directly in C, and also supports backup pools.
Depending on your Windows version, you can download the 32-bit, or you can also download the 64-bit version. After downloading this file, extract the zip file. After extracting the zip file, you can double-click on bfgminer.exe After double-clicking on bfgminer.exe, you will be prompted for the URL, which in the case of our pool is: stratum.triplemining.com:3334 the :3334 designates that it will be using port 3334. Username: yourusername_yourworkername Password: (this is the password you created for the worker). After entering this information, you will be able to mine on our pool and change a few of the options for the mining devices.
To start mining with Bitminter in Windows, you must have Java installed, which can be downloaded from here. You will need to choose the appropriate version for either 32-bit or 64-bit Windows. Next, go to Bitminter's web site and then click join and sign in with an OpenID. An OpenID is a login that uses a username and password that you have already. After creating a username and logging in, hover over my account, go down to workers, and click it. At the bottom, create a name and password for the worker and then click add. After doing this, hover over tools, then client, then latest and click on that. After downloading the file, click on it. It will open with Java. In order to start mining, click settings, then account. Enter your user name, then your worker name, then the password. This is all there is to it! Click the big start button and you are mining!
