Guide to mining MicroBitcoin on your desktop / laptop (CPU Mining)

This is a simple guide on setting up a CPU miner on your desktop or laptop that runs on the Windows or Mac operating system.

[Windows OS]
Step 1: Go to the link below and download the cpuminer_Windows.zip file

https://github.com/MicroBitcoinOrg/Cpuminer/releases
*make sure that you are on the latest version of the miner*

(you may need to exclude the file from the virus scanner)

Step 2: Extract the file (Cpuminer_Windows)

Step 3: Create a wallet for obtaining MicroBitcoin

https://microbitcoinorg.github.io/wallet/#/
*make sure it is a mainnet wallet*
*make sure to keep the private key SAFE*

Step 4: Create mbc.bat file

Ex.
cpuminer.exe -a rfv2 -o stratum+tcp://mbc-asia.skypool.co:8001 -u YOUR WALLET ADDRESS HERE -p c=MBC

*make sure there is a space after the wallet address*

*Pools with higher hashrates can be harder to get rewards. Try switching to a pool with a lesser hashrate*

For more pools, check the following list:
SkyPool (https://mbc.skypool.co/)
stratum+tcp://mbc-asia.skypool.co:8002

ZergPool (http://zergpool.com/)
stratum+tcp://rfv2.mine.zergpool.com:7444

Z Pool (https://zpool.ca/)
stratum+tcp://rfv2.jp.mine.zpool.ca:7443

MoricPool (http://mbc.moricpool.com/home/)
stratum+tcp://mbc.moricpool.com:4006

Sonox (https://pool.sonox.io/)
stratum+tcp://mine.pool.sonox.io:7444

TheTechnicalsPool (https://thetechnicalspool.com/)
stratum+tcp://mine.thetechnicalspool.com:7444

Step 5: Start Mining!

[Mac OS]

Step 1: Go to the link below and download the cpuminer_macOS.zip file

https://github.com/MicroBitcoinOrg/Cpuminer/releases
*make sure that you are on the latest version of the miner*

*make sure it is a mainnet wallet*
*make sure to keep the private key SAFE*

Step 3: Open up terminal and input the ex. text below

Ex.
LOCATION OF CPUMINER FILE -a rfv2 -o stratum+tcp://mbc-asia.skypool.co:8001 -u YOUR WALLET ADDRESS HERE -p c=MBC
*make sure there is a space after the wallet address*

*Pools with higher hashrates can be harder to get rewards. Try switching to a pool with a lesser hashrate*

MoricPool (http://mbc.moricpool.com/home/)
stratum+tcp://mbc.moricpool.com:4006

Sonox (https://pool.sonox.io/)
stratum+tcp://mine.pool.sonox.io:7444
