Smartcash mining process

Download a wallet
- Step 2

or CCMiner – If you have NVIDIA card – here
We are going further to explain how to use SGMiner for a start…
- 64-bit CPU
- 2GB RAM
- one or more modern GPUs suited to OpenCL mining
The latest version is SGminer GM 5.5.5. To set it up, unfold a zip file sgminer-gm.zip and simply go to a folder.
Setting up a SGMiner
Find a file “start.bat”. You will have to edit it manually to make SGMiner work appropriately.
The line should look like this:
The –u parameter should be changed to your username and the –p parameter is for your password. Remember not to share this information with anyone! After you are done with this step, save the changes and exit.

The next step is to join the miner and make your wallet work. To do so, follow the path on your PC:
“Yourusername” is for your computer’s name. If you cannot see the path in your window, then you can type it manually.
Once the path for Smartcash is done, create a .conf file to make your wallet function. The easiest way to do so is to copy this file from SGMiner fold, rename it and make one using a simple notepad.
Then go to SGMiner path where a GPU miner is situated, copy a file called sgminer-xmr.conf and remove it to a Smartcash path. Edit the file with the help of notepad but make sure that tickbox is not selected (we don’t want to make this file associated with a notepad).
Open the file and remove everything that is there. After you are done with deleting, add the following lines:
rpuser should be changed to the name you used in a SGMiner setup before. The same operation should be done with a line rpcpassword – change it to a password you used for SGMiner.
When you are done, save the changes and exit. After that, rename the file to smartcash.conf.

Download curl here and extract the files.
