The mining software uses a large number of commands, some are unavoidable for your mining operation, others are additional and can be out of interest for basic use.
–algo or shortly -a : You have to put the mining algorithm you want to use.
–server or shortly –s : You have to put the mining pool address, for example, ‘eth.cruxpool.com’.
–port or shortly -n : You have to put your mining pool port, for example, ‘5555’.
–user : You have to put your wallet address and the name of your worker. These values must be separated by a dot, for example, ‘wallet.RIG01’.
–pass or shortly -p : Mining pool password. By default, the value is ‘x’.
Once you made that, you have to choose the correct script file depending on the algorithm you want to use for your mining. Then, edit the mining file and fill it with your wallet address, worker name and Cruxpool mining URL. You can also use our command line generator and copy and paste the generated command-line. After that, save as a bash file – .sh – if you are on Linux or a batch file – .bat – if you are on Windows.
