How to Mine HEX on Windows (NON-POOL)

CAUTION:
This is non-pool mining! If the network hashrate is too big on the hexcoin blockchain, you probably never find a new block without a mining pool.

Mining HEX is not that difficult.

You just need our Core Application running and then follow these steps:

  1. Close your wallet (Core Application)  and create the file hexcoin.conf in the folder %APPDATA%\hexcoin\
  2. Paste the following text into hexcoin.conf, change username and password and save the file.
    rpcuser=YOUR_SECRET_USERNAME_HERE
    rpcpassword=YOUR_SECRET_PASSWORD_HERE1337
    rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
    rpcport=4210
    listen=1
    server=1
    addnode=node.hexco.in
  3. Download the latest version of cpuminer from here and extract the zip file.
  4. Create a new file and name it mine.bat
  5. Open mine.bat and paste the following line into it
    minerd --url=http://127.0.0.1:4210 --userpass=YOUR_SECRET_USERNAME_HERE:YOUR_SECRET_PASSWORD_HERE1337
  6. Save the file inside the extracted cpuminer folder.
  7. Open your wallet and execute mine.bat to start mining your first coins. 🙂
