1 Mine ETH with GPU

Different from Bitcoin which is mined by ASIC miners, ETH is mined by GPU miners.

2 Preparation

2.1 PC: You need a PC to execute a mining proxy program as a proxy for GPU miners.

2.2 Mining programs: eth-proxy.exe & start-eth-miner.bat

Download ETH mining software: http://download.viabtc.com/viabtc-eth-miner.zip

Note: You can find them under files named “eth-proxy” and “eth-miner”.

2.3 GPU miners: Your GPU miners need to run the programs above and be ready for ETH mining.

3 Configure mining proxy

Please find “eth-proxy.conf” under file “eth-proxy” and open it with a text editor. Settings are as follows:

WALLET = “Account” # Set your mining account MUST

Note: Please enter ViaBTC pool accounts or sub accounts. DO NOT enter an ETH wallet address.

Leave the rest as default.

After setting your wallet, please find “eth-proxy.exe” under file “eth-proxy” and double click to run proxy.

4 Configure miner

Please find “start-eth-miner.bat” under file “eth-miner”

Note: Please pay attention to this code ”http://eth-proxyLANaddress:8080/workID”

Please replace “eth-proxyLANaddress” with your actual eth-proxy address, e.g. 127.0.0.1;

Meanwhile, please rename workID with numbers, e.g. 001 for the 1st miner, 002 for the 2nd one, and so on for more convenient management.

Lastly, please double click “start-eth-miner.bat” to run miners.

5 Start mining ETH

You can check real-time status of your workers in ETH mining pool of ViaBTC at any time: https://pool.viabtc.com/pool/eth/home/
