Did you know that you can mine EtherZero (ETZ) coin? If you have decent graphics hardware on your computer, you can earn some passive income. I have a computer with GTX 1060 6GB graphics card that I have used to mine Zcash and Etheruem in the past. I later switched to Komodo mining since I knew that the price of Komodo coin will rise in coming months. Anyway, how to mine EtherZero?
First, download the miner from here and unzip it. Fire up notepad, and paste the code given below.
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
ethminer.exe -F http://us-pool.etherzero.org:8888/0xc296ae6761936d2f80770479ecb7c92d1cfbd786/miner –G
Change the italic part to your Ethereum wallet address or keep it like that to support us.
Save the file as etz.bat. Double click on the batch file to start mining. You can check your mining progress at explorer at http://pool.etherzero.org/. Enter your ethereum address to see the details. It can take upto 15 minutes before the pool actually shows any progress.
There is additional 2 percent pool fee and payments are sent only if you pass 1ETZ threshold.
If you want to send your EtherZero coins to an exchange for trading, you can check out this article about claiming Etherzero coins using myetherwallet.
