To mine ACM, you’ll need:

  • a mining rig/contract (miningrigrentals | nicehash)
  • a wallet, to store and manage your funds
  • a miner that is compatible with the Lyra2z algorithm

ACM Storage and Management:

  • Wallets for Windows, Linux, and macOS can be found at: https://github.com/Actinium-project/Actinium/releases/
  • Download the appropriate wallet and extract the folder to a known location.
  • Open actinium-qt and make a note of the directory the wallet will store data to.
  • Close actinium-qt and navigate to your wallet data folder (as noted in step 3).
  • BACK UP YOUR wallet.dat FILE TO A SEPARATE, SECURE DRIVE!!
  • Open actinium-qt and let the blockchain sync. Meanwhile, you may create an address and start mining.
  • If you’re having trouble downloading the blockchain, navigate to your actinium folder > open actinium.conf > add the following text and save:
addnode=104.156.231.46:4334
addnode=45.63.92.210:4334
addnode=140.82.36.38:4334
addnode=217.163.23.22:4334

Mining ACM

To start your miner, you will need to use the accompanying .bat or .sh file, for Windows and Linux miners, respectively. Paste the following sample in your .bat/.sh file and replace the <address> with your public address (noted earlier).

  • North America:

-a lyra2z -o stratum+tcp://mine.icemining.ca:4557 -u <address> -p c=ACM

  • Europe:

-a lyra2z -o stratum+tcp://eu.icemining.ca:4557 -u <address> -p c=ACM

To have your miner automatically reset when it fails, add the following:

  • Windows (.bat):
:mine
<miner settings>
goto:mine
  • Linux (.sh)
while [true]
do
<miner settings>
done

You can check your mining progress by going to: https://icemining.ca/?address=<wallet_address> and replacing <wallet_address> with yours.
