How to mine LOKI? A guide for beginners!

Thomas wants to mine LOKI!

First of all, Thomas has to download an actual miner to his computer. For the purpose of mining LOKI, Thomas downloads the XMR-STAK miner (he used this earlier as he mined Monero as well). Once the download is complete, he unpacks the download file unto a folder on his computer.

Secondly, Thomas has to generate a LOKI wallet. He visits the LOKI Wallet Generator, and generates a brand new wallet. He carefully copies/saves/writes down the private key of the wallet, his public address, and the other data. He will need the wallet address as he sets up the miner later.

Third, Thomas has to find a good mining-pool he can join. He doesn’t look around for a long time before he discovers the Cryptoknight mining pool. They have a nice website with good statistics, so he goes with this.
