Hey OCN'ers,

Here is a little guide that I have written to help people who are new to mining and crypto currencies get started. If you need any help clarifying a step or any other help, feel free to pm me.

 


 

First we are going to create the two accounts you will need: one for mining and one for trading PTS to BTC.

 

Go to http://ypool.net and sign up for a new account. This is where you will mine PTS. Next, up at the top where it says Current Coin Mode: XPM click on it and switch to Protoshares (the light blue icon).

On the left side click on Account -> Main Options and now leave this tab open.

Open another tab and go to the link below and download the Protoshares Wallet. This is where all your mined PTS will be sent. If you can't get it to sync, see instructions below:

http://invictus.io/bitshares-pts.php

Go to the receive tab at the top and copy that address. In the Automatic Payment section type whatever value you would like (I have 1.0 in mine). This is how often it will send the coins you mine to your wallet. Make sure to click save.

 

Next, go to the link below and sign up for an account. This is where you will send your PTS from your wallet to exchange for Bitcoins.

Now we need to download the miner.

 


 

For NVIDIA:

 

Go to the link below to check your card's compute capability version:

https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus

If you have compute capability version 3.0 or lower get this miner:

https://mega.co.nz/#!lZ5AVBrZ!w8mn_EDRrjsGaDuqvBxIiBy5MOPUOKNTtZRGBn2ZoSg

If you have compute capability version 3.5 get this miner:

https://mega.co.nz/#!JVpnjRAS!byuWd6ii-XiyOfx8NCw2fJAkyK4l1IjfzZgM2RFLQnI

And click Download to Computer. Unzip the file and edit the mine.bat and put in your username on the first line where it says yourusername.PTS_1. Now just save it and double click on mine.bat and you should see it start mining!

 


 

For AMD:

 

Go here and click Download to Computer:

 

https://mega.co.nz/#!xRg02Rxa!yHONwfoMA_rTwFNWCVDDSi69SMtnXZBaMV5IOkEryso

 

nzip the file and edit the mine.bat and put in your username on the first line where it says yourusername.PTS_1. Now just save it and double click on mine.bat and you should see it start mining!

 


 

You can go to the link below and see all your connected miners and you should start seeing shares being submitted which are then credited to your account!

http://ypool.net/pts/workers_live

 

 

And that's it! If you need any help or didn't get a certain part, let me know and I'd be happy to help you get up and running 

 


 

Tip: Plug your monitor into the integrated GPU to avoid lag while browsing.

 


 

If you can't get your Protoshare wallet to sync try:

 

When the protoshares qt client is open, find its icon down in the system tray. Right click it and click on the Debug Window option. In there, open up the Console Mode. Type in the following commands

 

addnode cryptoseed.cloudapp.net add
addnode 162.243.67.4 add
addnode 162.243.54.126 add
addnode 37.139.29.236 add
addnode 64.90.183.137 add
addnode 180.183.205.118 add

I'm not sure what you mean by equivalent CUDA card. Do you mean in terms of profitability? AMD cards, if you can find them for a reasonable price, are still more profitable than NVIDIA cards so do not go out and buy one just for this, but if you already have an NVIDIA card, this is the most profitable method for mining.

Yes for amd cards like 7950 or 7970 what CUDA card will equal the same profitability, or are the amd cards just so far ahead there is no comparison.

A single 7970 can pull about $10 a day right now while a 780 Ti is getting just over $9 a day.
