Mining Guide

The easiest way to mine is to join a pool. To mine at our pool, click on the "Mining" link at the top of the page.

If you wish to solo mine, then you will need to set the algorithm in your pyrk.conf file to the one you wish to mine. Here are the available algorithms:
algo=scrypt   (default)
algo=sha256
algo=x11


If you are a pool operator, it should be pretty straight forward to setup as we do not use any new algorithms. We use Miningcore software at our pool with these coin configs:
