You are able to mine Dero using the same programs you would use to mine Monero. I’m not familiar with the program that you’re trying to use, but I can recommend one for your consideration.
support all common backends (CPU/x86, AMD-GPU and NVIDIA-GPU)
support all common OS (Linux, Windows and MacOS)
supports algorithm cryptonight for Monero (XMR) and cryptonight-light (AEON)
easy to use
guided start (no need to edit a config file for the first start)
auto configuration for each backend
open source software (GPLv3)
JSON API for monitoring
If you require any assistance I’m available on several platforms to help you with any issues you may have related to Dero. The xmr-stak program is what I use myself for mining and I have enjoyed it so far.
You’re very welcome for the reply, it was my pleasure.
I can’t honestly tell you which program is better because I have not used cpuminer-multi. I can say from personal experience that xmr-stak has worked well for me and seems to have a solid group of followers/developers.
You are correct, instead of using the monero address and pool you use a Dero wallet/pool.
Again, it was genuinely my pleasure, you’re very welcome.
Sorry for my delayed response, I had to step away briefly.
If when you press C it shows your connection info including the pool, good shares, latency, and other good stuff then you are connected!
Using H will show your hashrate on your side. When you check the pool it’s just checking the number of shares you’ve sent and dividing it by the time you spent connected to give you an estimated hashrate.
I can’t recommend a specific cpu configuration, but you may be able to go online to get a little more hashing power out of your specific setup.
I’m really glad to hear that you got it up and running, congratulations!!
If you check out this guide it will tell you how to check your balance near the bottom. You will need to sync your daemon before loading your wallet. I’ll still be up for a couple hours at least so if you need any assistance just let me know!
Sorry for my delayed response, I’ve been making excellent progress on a few Dero related projects and the time got away from me.
You’re up and mining successfully! When your balance reaches 2.0 Dero you will receive a transfer directly to your wallet. After the pool transfers the balance it will be fully unlocked in your wallet after 10 blocks.
