Highly profitable: Dual-mining Ethereum and Zilliqa with GPU + 3rd coin with CPU

Category: Guides Published: Thursday, 18 February 2021 Written by Altcoin

Dual-mining Ethereum and Zilliqa - very profitable!

If you have tried to buy a new graphics card lately you probably know markets are emptied constantly, and there may be months of waiting for delivery of your new GPU. With the soaring prices of Ethereum it has become very profitable to mine again, even with older GPU's. 

Here I'll present you an even more profitable use of your GPU, Dual mining! With small adjustments to your Ethereum miner configuration you can also mine Zilliqa at no extra cost!

First of all, the requirements to mine ETH are growing, and a graphics card with 4GB memory are no longer viable. 6GB or more is needed! Cards with 4GB or less can mine ETC + ZIL, follow the instructions but replace ETH with ETC.

The preferred miner sofware for Nvidia cards are T-rex, download here: https://github.com/trexminer/t-rex/releases
Y
ou must choose the correct miner for your driver's CUDA version, you find it in windows by opening NVidia control panel from Start menu, click on Help > System Information and click on the components tab.

In Linux type this command in the command line: cat /usr/local/cuda/version.txt 

For AMD cards I recommend Lolminer, download here: https://github.com/Lolliedieb/lolMiner-releases/releases 

I recommend using Exodus wallet for Ethereum and Zilliqa if you want to save up your coins for a while, else you can mine directly to Binance exchange. Go to wallet > Fiat & Spot and find the deposit addresses.

 

You will be mining at the Ezil mining pool, https://ezil.me/?p=9044, go there and click Start, choose your region and insert your ETH and ZIL addresses. Worker can be whatever you want, it is not needed if you only mine from one pc.

Next make an ezil.bat file in the miner directory, alternatively edit one of the existing batfiles there, and put in the information given at Ezil. Save and close.

Doubleclick the ezil.bat file to start mining.

If the miner window only flashes or don't start, you may need to allow/exclude t-rex.exe or lolminer.exe in your antivirus or Windows Defender and unpack the files again.

On Ezil, click Log in at top right corner, and insert your ETH and ZIL addresses. This give you access to your mining overview page, and you should see the miner connected there within a couple minutes.

Make sure the 9044 PROMO CODE stays up right, if not enter it. This give you an extra 0.1% CASHBACK.

 

Congrats, you are now generating Ethereum and Zilliqa cryptocurrencies with your GPU!

 

Bonus: You can also mine with a thread or two from your rig's CPU at https://unmineable.com/?ref=bqc7-bwb2
Choose whatever coin there as payout, you can point it to ZIL, or even TRX and other non-minable coins. Download xmrig https://github.com/xmrig/xmrig/releases and use this in your start.cmd

xmrig.exe -o rx.unmineable.com:3333 -a rx -k -u TRX:YourAddress.YourWorkerName -init 1

Change 1 to the number of threads you want to use. Look here for further configuration
