How to mine Electroneum with xmr-stak-cpu for Windows

If you want to use a wallet for your coins, check the Electroneum-wallet-cli. If you want to mine with both cpu and gpu or if you own an older cpu without AES (google your cpu +AES), then use xmr-stak 2. This tutorial below is for both Electroneum and Monero.

If you want to mine immediately, you can download my preconfigured xmr-stak-cpu. Unpack and run xmr-stak-cpu.exe. If you run into dll error, check the link at the end. If it works, just change the wallet address and pool address (if you want to mine in another pool) in config.txt to your wallet address and your pool address. in the same config.txt file, add or remove following lines to get the best performance. If you know the name of your cpu, you can check here how many threads (lines below) other people use.

{ ”low_power_mode” : false, ”no_prefetch” : true, ”affine_to_cpu” : 0 },
{ ”low_power_mode” : false, ”no_prefetch” : true, ”affine_to_cpu” : 2 },
{ ”low_power_mode” : false, ”no_prefetch” : true, ”affine_to_cpu” : 4 },
{ ”low_power_mode” : false, ”no_prefetch” : true, ”affine_to_cpu” : 6 },
{ ”low_power_mode” : false, ”no_prefetch” : true, ”affine_to_cpu” : 8 },

Save and restart xmr-stak-cpu.

If you don´t want to use my preconfigured xmr-stak-cpu, follow the tutorial below:

1. Download xmr-stak-cpu-win64.zip
2. unzip/unpack/extract it. Antivirus may react.

3. Run xmr-stak-cpu.exe

4. Copy from ”cpu_thread… until ],
In my case it is

”cpu_threads_conf” :

[
{ ”low_power_mode” : false, ”no_prefetch” : true, ”affine_to_cpu” : 0 },
{ ”low_power_mode” : false, ”no_prefetch” : true, ”affine_to_cpu” : 1 },
{ ”low_power_mode” : false, ”no_prefetch” : true, ”affine_to_cpu” : 2 },
],

5. Close the black CMD window. In the folder again, open config.txt. Replace ”cpu_threads_conf” : null,

6. At the bottom of the config.txt, replace

”pool_address” : ”pool.usxmrpool.com:3333”,
”wallet_address” : ””,
”pool_password” : ””,

with

”pool_address” : ”etn.easyhash.io:3630”,
”wallet_address” : ”your-public-address-here”,
”pool_password” : ”x”,

Change pool address to another one if you want, for example uspool.electroneum.com:3333, eupool.electroneum.com:5555 etc…
the ones you will find at https://easyhash.io/connection/etn

Copy paste your public key into Your Stats & Payment History on this page https://easyhash.io/pools/etn to check your payments when you are up running the xmr-stak-cpu.

 

7. Save the config.txt and run xmr-stak-cpu.exe. It may speed up if you right click and run it as administrator.

If you get dll error, download and install https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=746572

Else, just count your hashes/second. To check your speed, press H.
